Mary Anne’s husband here.
I’ve made a few tweaks to the website so that your visits here will be more enjoyable.
- Disabled the Snapshot feature.
You know that little cartoon speech bubble thing that would pop up when you hovered your mouse pointer on a link and show you a preview of the page being linked? I personally found it entirely too sensitive and annoying. It also took up precious bandwidth and memory. So whoosh! out the door it goes. I can put it back if enough people want it back, but I don’t see that happening.
- Added paperback book cover images and created special “large cover image” pages.
Mary Anne wanted me to show off my paperback book covers as well as the full-sized e-book covers already on the site. Doing this necessitated changing the way cover images were displayed, because I was just linking the raw large-sized e-book cover before. I decided to create a page for each book’s covers, which can be accessed from the side bar under Sections or from the individual thumbnail images on the Complete List of Books page.
Who knows, you might even want to buy a paperback after seeing one of my covers or want me to design a book cover for you. E-mail Mary Anne if you would like to arrange for me to design a book cover for you. I’m sure we can negotiate a great deal in exchange for a testimonial or inclusion in a future portfolio.
- Assigned categories to blog posts.
It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. I had to wait awhile to see what kind of things Mary Anne would blog about so I could create categories and assign them. Now, if you want to see just stuff about the trashy TV shows she watches or about Michael Jackson or Donny Osmond, you don’t have to wade through stuff about her personal life. You can just go to the sidebar, scroll down to Filter by Category, select Other Entertainment in the drop down list and VICHYSSOISE! you have all of her posts about the abominable Durrrrrrrr & Murrrrrrrrrr from Grey’s Anatomy (or as I have titled it, Young Doctors Who Like To Screw So Much That Their Patients Croak and They Have Nervous Breakdowns), or whatevs. So try that out and see how you like it.
Let me wrap this up with two last things.
I wanted to make sure you knew that Sixth Sense is now out in paperback on Amazon, so click on the link and check that out.
Finally, I’m working on getting E-mail Enticement ready for paperback, which includes redoing the cover, formatting the book using our old & busted copy of MS Word, et cetera, et cetera. So you should be able to get a molecular copy of it fairly soon to launch at a loved one’s head and put a romance-novel-shaped dent in a much adored skull.
Until next time… AOFM signing off.
