New Website Launch!


I am doing back flips with excitement!

*picture an Olympic gymnast with my face pasted on her head doing a perfect back flip*

Since I decided to start writing some non-Christmasy stories (Lumberjack in Love--coming soon, as well as a children's book, steampunk book, paranormal romance and mystery), I figured it was time to turn my holiday-inspired website into a more general writer's site. I need to transition from the holiday stuff to other material, but I still have to include the Klaus Brothers Series.

Well, I've spent the last couple of months collecting jpegs, working on text, picking out colors and fonts, and collaborating with my stupendous website installer, Sharon. (Here's the link to her website, Sites by Sharon). What has emerged is a totally Penelope-esque site. It's mod, it's funky, it has quotes from Sherlock Holmes and The Big Bang Theory, and the background color reminds me of the chocolate river from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (original movie, not the remake, thank you very much).

Please take a look and let me know what you think! PENNY WATSON BOOKS

*now pretend I'm doing a full twisting layout with my tiara securely fastened on top of my head*

Loving my new website and wishing I had a candy bar,
Penelope

Are you open for business? The seriously big baubles made me spit my coffee out!

Penelope said...

Thanks Aubrey. I love yellow, too!

Penelope said...

Thanks so much, Dani!

Penelope said...

Glad you like it, Jen! I just noticed that when I look at the website with my ipad, the cool Blair font doesn't come through on some of the pages. Too bad. I guess it defaults to another font. I love that Blair font style!

Penelope said...

Thanks Casey, Natascha and Julia!

I got big baubles, baby. ;^)

Thanks, Steph! Here's a quote that didn't make it on the website....

"I'm like the bad penny...."
