Website Re-launch

Hey everyone! So, as most of you know, I run a magazine called Literary Lunes.  Well, as a result, I formed my own mini-indie publishing company called Literary Lunes Publications.  The magazine has become popular enough, that I needed to split it up into two websites, and form the on-line presence of it’s publishing company.

I originally began the company on blogger or blogspot as some of you know it as.  However, I don’t like the new blogger interface, and decided to move it to the same webserver I use for my other sites.  It makes sense, right?

So, I have been re-constructing the new Literary Lunes Publications website.  It’s still got the same basic menu tabs, only, it’s much better organized. I am no-where near finished, but I thought that I would give it a shout out here, and see if any of you would be kind enough to give it a follow? The website is www.literarylunespublications.com.

The other problem I had with it being on Blogger, was that I couldn’t customize it the way I wanted to.  Blogger doesn’t have nearly as many options as wordpress, and now that I have it on the Bluehost server, I can have unlimited emails and access to some pretty awesome plugins :).

So, please give my new site a follow loves.  I’d really appreciate it! Again, the address is www.literarylunespublications.com I will be having a website re-launch party there in a few days, and will be answering any questions you guys may have for me 🙂

Writerly Wednesday #7

 

Welcome to another week of Writerly Wednesday, a meme that was started by the lovely Erin Danzer.  IN this meme, I talk about all things related to writing.

As most of you know, I run a magazine called Literary Lunes.  It’s been around for about a year and a half now, and I’ve started publishing the magazine in paperback.  I was using Lulu to do so, but I found out yesterday that they never published the paperbacks!  WTF? I was wondering why I wasn’t making any sales off of it.  Sighs.  Everything had been saved as a draft, and they never notified me! So now I had to take everything down from them, and am in the process of re-publishing through createspace. It’s such a waste of time, but at least I now know that it wasn’t because of something I did per say…it was Lulu not telling me I needed to make changes or that they couldn’t convert it to a pdf.  It’s so frustraiting!

Speaking of Literary Lunes, you guys should hop on over to the newly rennovated website and check out all of the changes and updates I made over the weekend. I still have a lot of work to do, but it is getting there! I commissioned Dafeenah over at Indie Designz for a new banner and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with!  For those of you who don’t know this, but she designed the banner and buttons for two other of my websites. You can find samples of her awesomeness here and here.  To view the newly updated Literary Lunes website, please go to www.literarylunes.com

I am currently organizing a blog tour for the Writings From the Heart anthology that I am releasing on June 6. I still have plenty of spaces available, so if you would like to hop on the tour please let me know!

 

Writerly Wednesday #4

Wow, I haven’t blogged since March 25th? Shame on me!  Let’s see, what has been going on in writingland lately.

Well, I have a new banner on the The World Among Us website. Head on over and check it out and let me know what you think, will you? www.theworldamongussaga.com The site is still a work in progress, but it will tell you everything you need to know about my books from where to buy them to all the mythology. 

I have also done a bit of tinkering with www.bethannmasarik.com.  I ordered a new banner for the website, which I should have in a few days.  I plan to do some more work on it this weekend now that I have some time coming to me. I am determined to get my website totally done, but, it is hard to do when you are only one person working on it, you know?  I run 4 websites, if you count this blog.  That’s A LOT for one person to manage.

Let’s see, what else can I report?  Oh, yeah!  I wrote another 1,000 words in Stormy Nights (book #2 in The World Among Us) this week. 

It’s been pretty quiet around here lately in writingland to be honest. I will have a few guest posts up on www.literarylunespublications.com over the next week or so, so please keep an eye out on that.  Ummm….that’s all for now that I can think of.  I’ll be working on my websites this weekend, so I’ll have more updates for you lovely people.

I am also working on setting up a newsletter sign up form, so please keep your eyes out for that as well!
