You know what? I'm a writer, but I'll be damned if I write in anything other than english. I do not write in HTML! Therefore, having decided to reformat my website Erinmonahan.com has been largely an effort in trial, error, and foul language. However, I'm pleased to announce, it's done, and I think I did a pretty damn good job, for an html retard!
Actually, it isn't quite done, I've only loaded one poem, because frankly, I dislike frames, and I dread the idea of building a new page for each poem. I'm considering some cute little pop-up java script boxes and a plain white (or blue?) background.
Anyway, feel free to hop over there and give me your opinion if you feel like it - I'd welcome the input!
In other news, I finally decided to throw caution to the wind and contact a privately owned bookstore to see if they'd carry my chapbook. I kept telling myself I was going to, but honestly, I'm a chicken, and I backed out every time. But, today I emailed one bookstore, and they said yes! Now realistically speaking, they agreed to add one copy to their 'local authors' shelf, and if it sells, they'll reorder. Not exactly a money maker of a deal, but it was enough to give me the nerve to contact more bookstores.
I've contacted 6 by email today - only that one response so far lol - but I also have a huge list of bookstores that didn't have an email contact that I'll be contacting in the next few days. Wish me luck!
