I finally got fed up with my former web host and moved my site over to something much more manageable. Actually, I’ve been fed up for a long time but I kept putting it off. Now, my annual subscription was coming up and no way was I going to dump another year’s worth of time and money into my old host. Nothing like the threat of a credit card charge to get me motivated.
So far, I’ve moved everything over except some of my blog posts. Those will be migrating over soon. That was the biggest issue I had with my former host: it was terrible for blogging, and it’s something I’ve been wanting to do more often for a while now. A few years ago I wrote a few posts about query letters and other writing advice, and they drove traffic to my site in tsunami waves. However, the blogging capabilities were so poor that few people could find their way to other posts or to the rest of my site after landing there from google or a twitter link.
I’m hoping to use this new blogging space to keep you all updated more often; write about what’s going on with me and my books, what I’m currently working on, things I’ve learned about the publishing industry, and so on.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be re-posting my most popular posts here and expanding on new material afterwards. If there’s a topic you’d like to see covered about me or the publishing industry, feel free to email me through the contact form found here.
