It’s a bit of a fixerupper

So, I’ve revived this thing. Not like it was ever really up and running, but still, It’s alive!

When I started it, I just grabbed a template with colours I could tolerate and parked it. Now that it’s going to be seeing some regular action, I figure I should dress it up a bit. Trouble is, I’m fussy, and nothing I like to look at regularly (and really, I’m the one who’s gotta spend more time here than anyone else) really suits the typical images of my genres.

I mean, looking at this thing, would you guess that I write medieval romance and erotic fantasy?

But I do like red on black.

Yes, I know it’s hard to look at. I’m trying to find something different. I really am. But I’m not good at colour coordination, I’m a total minimalist and I’m kinda cheap. I also think wordpress is kinda weird, and don’t like messing around with its codey bits. So, I’m hoping that I’m going to stumble across some kind of free template that doesn’t scream cheese at me, and that has some semblance of balance in the columns, isn’t busy looking, has a centered header, minimal images and patterns, and somehow manages to convey that I write overly researched historicals and dirty books about elves.

Yeah, thanks. I’m going to need all the luck I can get.

  1. WordPress is rough to work with, if you ask me, but other people love it. go figure. I like the red on black…and I don’t mind the dark background, though people will tell you it’s BAAAAD. Sometimes the white background makes me feel like I’m going blind. I should know, I have that now at my own blog. šŸ˜›

    I’m just glad you’re writing. šŸ˜€
