Describe your website.
My website is designed around a blog that updates readers about my novels and other projects. In addition, my site includes a section on fiction and another on essays. Each of my existing and upcoming books has a page under the fiction section: The Locust Queen's Feast, Edge Station, Crows' Gambit, and A Fragment of Nothing. There is also a page where visitors can learn about me and some of my other interests.
Who is the target audience for your website?
I hope to attract anyone who enjoys fantasy, magical realism, and science fiction to my site. In general, my books and site are meant for those over eighteen years of age. In addition to my readers, I hope that my friends, new and old, will visit my site often so they can keep up with my life and my projects.
Tell us a story about this website.
Since I switched to Sandvox, several visitors have commented that my site looks better than it ever has before.
What techniques did you use to build this website?
After I moved to Sandvox, I decided to completely rework my site. This involved a lot of cut-and-paste from old pages. I also reproduced the dates on my original blog posts via the inspector. I used HTML code injection to incorporate features from Goodreads.com -- a subsidiary of Amazon.
