A little rebranding

After reading some good advice today about drawing in new readers, I decided it was time to tweak my blog a little. Before, I was blogging to other writers, sharing what I learned as I self-published my first book. But now that the book is out, I need to switch gears and aim my blog at readers. And I suspect readers really don’t care about how I got my Kindle margins just right, or what size cover image to use.

Those posts will still be here, and I will occasionally post new ones from time to time if I find myself coming across something I want to share. However, the rest of the time I’m going to aim to blog about things the general public (or at least fans of paranormal fiction) want to read.

So, while I try to figure out what, exactly, that is, I leave you with a photo of my cats. Because really, isn’t that the whole point of the Internet? To share and look at cat pictures?

(If anyone wonders, the one on the left is Buffy and the one on the right is Ana-Lucia. Yes, both are named after TV shows, though I can’t take credit for Ana. She and her sister, Kate, came with their names. I just considered it serendipity that LOST was my favorite show at the time.)


  1. Hi Allison - just wanted to let you know I've been reading your blog, and thoroughly enjoyed your posts about self-publishing. I'm a writer, too, and last November tried my hand at a novel during NaNoWriMo (it's still in editing stages). Looking forward to continue reading your posts, and getting to "Destiny" in my line of books to-read!

  2. Sounds good to me. People who read should like cats also.

  3. @jessica maria Hi Jessica! Thanks for the comment. I'm glad to hear someone out there's been reading. :) Destined actually started out as a NaNoWriMo book, back in 2001. (It's been languishing for a while on my hard drive.) I hope you enjoy it!
