New Blog Design Unveiled!

Ta-da!  This is the first of my two new designs for my blog and my website.  While I loved my previous design, this one seems more fitting now that I've chosen to write the Sons of Navarus series.  With eight vampire heroes, I'm going to be doing paranormal romance for a while, so I thought I'd redo the digs to reflect that.

The old design, which was great, was more classic.

The wonderful Emily from Blogaholic Designs, who designed the previous look, got the nod for this one too, and I love what she did!  Darker and sexier than the older look, the header now has my author tagline "Romance...from sensual to decadent...whatever your desires" and don't miss the signature below each post.  I love that! 

The website design will change soon too, and for that I'm going even sexier.  Here's a teaser of what that header will have:

Isn't that pic delicious?  So sexy! 

In other dark and sexy news, the edits for Blood Betrayed are back from the editor, and I've completed the initial run-through clean up/edit. I type very fast (about 120 words a minute), but I can only sustain it for a little while (no more than a chapter a day).  I hate typing, though, so I always push it too long and as a result, my first draft is riddled with typos.  My editor must hate that, but I send it to her as it's typed.  She's got an eagle eye for such things, so when it comes back to me, it's now riddled with yellow.  I did the clean up edit last night, and this weekend the structural edit begins. 

And the third book, Blood Spirit, is shaping up very nicely.  Last night as I was writing, I had an idea for one of the Sons that's going to add a great layer of tension, so I can't wait to get to that.  Saturday and Sunday are editing and writing, so it's looking to be a terrific weekend for me.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks guys! Nat, the chain came in the scrapbook kit, and I thought it would look great as the post divider. :)
