This summer has been a busy one. Besides finishing the first 7 chapters of Song of the Mysteries while evading viruses and hurricanes, Janny has also been choreographing an upgrade of her official website. “When it’s done!” is usually the safest response to questions about release dates, but we’re now far enough along to promise that you’ll see the new site in the next few weeks. Our early goals are simple:
- Give it a unique character that reflects Janny’s dual hats as an author and artist.
- Simplify the navigation so it’s easier to find things and a joy to explore.
- Make it modern and mobile-friendly to support the way that many visitors (over 50%) browse the web these days.
To help pass the time while you wait, here is a poll question that will help us hammer out the final pages of the new website: How much do direct BUY links on a Book page (to a vendor like Amazon) influence you when discovering a new book? Assuming you aren’t already a superfan, has a BUY link ever triggered an impulse buy? Are you more likely to want to write down the book title and browse to your preferred book vendor (or physical bookshop) instead?
I’ll post website updates in this thread throughout the month. Check back soon!
