I've parked a website.

I always felt a little funny about having a website to promote my writing when I'm not yet published.  It's not going to lead an editor or agent to my door and I honestly feel if I don't have something to promote, why put myself out there.

It seems this is my old "don't notice me" self coming back to haunt my life.  However, in the present, information-rich climate it's more important than ever to be visible.  So, even though I'm still tweaking it a little, here is my website.  It links to my Twitter, my blog, and my Facebook page (which you can also find here) and I hope to add more content as time goes on.

Please visit and please tell me what you think.

Back to the revision.  I think this may end soon.  I hope.


  1. Love it, Jeannie! I'm thinking of taking the plunge, too.

  2. Thanks, Michelle. Not to plug one hosting site over another, Go Daddy made it very easy to get started.

  3. Jeannie, that web site is beautiful! I love it. I think of the web site as a home base of sorts, and I think agents and editors will be impressed. Well done!

    By the way, thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to know I'm not alone with the cranky inner editor!

  4. Tastefully done, Jeanie. Nice. Now I definitely have to get my daughter to sit down and help me with my Facebook and Twitter pages. Both are not finished and I never go on them.

    When it comes to cyber thingies I feel hey there's a bunch of people more experienced in writing than me. Who am I to try and give advice. That's why on my blog it's mostly about me, ideas, and occasionally about an author such as Hugh Prather and Raymond Chandler.

  5. Thanks for the feedback, Julie. I'm glad I have something parked and usable. That inner editor...hate her. But I do it all the time.

    Donna, The nice thing about being part of a group is that people bring their own talents to the mix. I'm still learning about Twitter, FB and the overall web presence needed to be successful in publishing. (But I'm feeling pretty good about it.) We share what we know. If I can help...ask!

  6. Website looks great. Good luck with that. I have been spending the past four days teaching myself dreamweaver so I can build a site for my business. Man, it is hard, so I commend you on yours.

  7. I love it, can't wait to see more.
