Have you visited my website lately? Kathy Temean just finished revamping the cover to include a recent picture to replace the one that had been there since she created the site in 2009. I know, about time. Anyway, here’s the link: http://www.davidlharrison.com/

I also like the way Kathy has arranged the page to show my five most recent titles and repeats the upcoming AFTER DARK across the top of the page. w00t!
While you’re at it, please look around the site. There is a lot of information and maybe some of you haven’t spent much time checking it out. If you haven’t signed my Guest Book, I hope you’ll take a minute to do that. Thanks!
I forgot to point out that I changed two of the headings above my blog page. I replaced the note to principals with information about my conference talks and school visits, and I replaced my speaking schedule with interviews and videos. Check them out when you have time. Some of the same information will show up on my website once we make some adjustments there, but I didn’t think it would hurt to make this material available on the blog too.
By the way, if you haven’t signed my guest book on the website, I would be delighted if you would. You can get to my website by scrolling down the right column beside my blog until you come to the website box or you can get there by clicking on http://davidlharrison.com
Blogs are more fun than websites, I know. I’m proud of my website, which was designed and is maintained by Kathy Temean, but even I don’t go to my website as often as I drop by my blog to see what readers might have to say that day. A blog is a living thing compared to the trophy room of a website.
Nevertheless, the website is there to provide information about the author for those who might have an interest. It’s like setting up your own card table at a festival signing where each author vies for the attention of the patrons already burdened by sagging book bags, picking up this title or that, flipping through a couple of pages before deciding whether to invest or move on.
Each of us wants to have a card table that attracts attention and Kathy did a really nice job decorating mine. I couldn’t have done it and I’m grateful to her. Now and then I have a new title come out, or maybe I’m lucky enough to receive some attention for one book or another, so I tell Kathy and she moves things around on the table to accommodate the latest addition.
If you haven’t checked out my website lately, I would be pleased if you decide to pay it a visit. If not for me, at least think of Kathy. What about HER feelings? I think more than 160 people have signed my guest book now. If you’ve never done that, feel free to add that to your New Year’s resolutions.
