Website Makeover

They say if you’re going to have a website, you need to keep it up to date. There’s nothing more annoying than visiting a favourite author’s site, only to find it doesn’t have their latest information on it (or even worse – it was made when dinosaurs roamed the earth). I’m usually pretty on top of updates, however there were some parts of my site that I was avoiding. So today was the day for it: with frilly apron on and equipped with a trusty broom and some toxic cleaning products, I swept out all the cobwebs, dusted the shelves, repainted the walls and put up some new pictures. While the design has remained the same, there’s plenty of new info:

  • I’ve updated Writing Methods, as with experience my process has changed
  • I’ve updated Illustration Techniques, since finding my artistic mojo
  • And most exciting: I’ve added a Books page (even though I have little to put there just yet)


Feel free to hop off and check it out (and let me know if there are any missing links or embarrassing spelling mistakes…)

    Am I the only one requesting proof of Katherine with the frilly apron and broom?

    Hooray! Huzzah for new information, no spelling mistakes that I could see. I’m sure that books section will be overflowing with goodness before long. :)

    Looks great, Katherine! Your illustrations are so beautiful and always leave me with a smile on my face. I love that you have put more of them on your page!

    It looks great, Kath. I bet you are relieved getting all that spring cleaning out of the way. May it attract all and sundry…

    Just trying to get my mind around this picture of you in a frilly apron, K. LOL :)

    Lynn, another thing to cross off my to do list! The list seems to be exponential though, so it has already been replaced by several more things to do … sigh.

    Sheryl, I enjoy a frilly apron just as much as the next fashionista :)
