"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


I've Redecorated ;) Have A Peek

I've been wanting a new, more streamlined look on my blog for a while, but have never had/taken the time to do it until now. I had lots of fun (LOL mostly!) over the past couple days tweaking and retweaking and making buttons and headers and other such doodads and gadgets (Thanks Peejers!), and I finally have it just the way I like it (for the moment, anyway!). I also wanted to sync my blog a bit more with my brand (Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence), so I could have a more "syncronized presence" (I may have just made up that phrase).

I'm also planning some more changes here at An Open Book over the next little bit, including, Lord willing, more regular posting on set topics that are important to me and hopefully you. There will be, of course, plenty of room for me to wiggle, but I've found I do better when I know what I'm supposed to do on a certain day. But I think I'll go into that later - perhaps on my goals and progress post coming up in a few days.

In the meantime, I'd love it if you'd stop by (if you're not reading this at the site of course!)and look around and tell me what you think. Would LOVE the feedback - positive or negative.

Oh, and if you're so inclined, grab my button :D

  4. Love the new look; I'm so impressed that you did this yourself! Indeed, it fits nicely with your "theme"; I'd love to see you do more with a series type thing... I loved your Pentateuch series at Exemplify. I'll be following along as I can.


  5. I love the new blog design! You are talented! I also think your brand name is excellent!

  6. I like this stream-lined look a lot--alliteration aside:) Your brand comes through more clearly.

    Way to go on your goals, too!
