My Website! And Prezzies!

I'm not going to talk a lot today, because as you can see, I have a new website that is MADE OF WIN. This gorgeous little baby was designed by Manning Krull. Manning is MADE OF WIN SQUARED. I also suspect that he's psychic, because I would send him three sentences describing what I wanted each illustration to look like, and then he picked the drawings out of my head and put them onto paper.

Manning, if you're reading this, I would like to know the lotto numbers.

So, I encourage you to look around my website and enjoy the awesomeness. If you click on my name above, it takes you to my snazzy home page, which you MUST SEE. But before you do...it gets awesomer.

Visit my website and look round for the newsletter. If you sign up, you'll get free short stories from me, updates on my appearances, and special access to newsletter only contests! And I'm doing one of those newsletter only contests this week! Oh frabjous day!

Ahem. But seriously. I will do a random drawing of newsletter recipients ONLY on Monday July 19. The winner will receive two awesome prezzies. First, you'll get a poster of the monster prom image from my home page. That's right; you can have a pirate djinn and ninja werecat of your very own! AND, I will promise you the first of my haven't-arrived-yet ARCs.

That's right. This is my first official ARC giveaway, and I haven't even gotten them yet. But I am a rebel, and I can't sit on this website any longer. So. Let me know what you think of it, and sign up for the newsletter! I'll announce the winner of the poster and the ARC on Tuesday. Whee!

To clarify: I REALLYREALLYREALLY want to hear what you think about the website! But in order to win, you need to sign up for my newsletter.

And in the meantime, I've got to ask: It was my goal to have the kewlest author site ever. Did I succeed?

You DID succeed in having the kewlest site ever. BUT I've hired Manning for next month to make my site, so then I will have the kewlest site ever!!! BWAHAHAHA! It's kinda like that time when the Chrysler building was the tallest building in NY, and then the Empire state building busted out a new antenna like the next day and told the Chrysler building to EAT IT.

(but seriously: way awesome)

I saw that the website was live and didn't even read the post until much later, after I'd explored EVERY PAGE and signed up for the newsletter and THEN I read the post and NOW I'm like ARCS! ARCS! I LOVE ARCS! and this website is absolutely INSANELY SPARKLEY AWESOME, CARRIE.

I seriously can't stop petting it.

Some Screaming Fangirl said...

Nah, this isn't is Made of Win, or Made of Win Squared...IT'S MADE OF WIN CUBED! Between Fact and Fiction's Natalie referred me here, and this site looks amazing! The home page, especially!

Oh, and your book, Bad Taste in Boys, looks pretty EPIC if I do say so myself. You got a new stalker! ;)

You and Steph have thoroughly convinced me that Manning Krull will be the designer of my website/blog combo when I get my Super Fabulous Book Deal. Keep it in the family, right?

He makes PRETTY things.
