I am grinning like a ‘possum eatin’ a sweet potato. Why, you ask? Because I’m here to announce the launch of my new domain, the permanent home of Marcus Richardson on the internet. Click on the new site banner below to have a look at my new digs.
Okay, you back? Good. Pretty cool, huh? Keep in mind that it’s a work in progress, so over the coming weeks and months I’m sure I’ll tweaking things, adding or subtracting graphics, etc…but you get the idea of what the thing is going to look like.
I’ve got everything set up now so the new website will be the hub of all things Marcus going forward. From there I’ll post my blogs (based on the spiffy urbane WordPress.org engine, not the plebeian WordPress.com engine you’re enjoying now), have links to all my books and all that stuff you’ve been seeing on my old Wix website (which now does nothing but point people to the new site). But now it’ll all be in one place–making it way easier for me to manage, meaning I’ll be able to get more content to you.
Speaking of that–most of you are reading this because you’ve subscribed to my blog on WordPress.com. Well, now that I have a self-hosted WordPress.org site, I won’t be using this blog anymore. It sounds kind of complicated–actually, kind of silly now that I look at all the .com and .org nonsense, but that’s how they chose to run it. Anyway…
Don’t worry–I’m going to transfer you all over to the new site over the next few days. You won’t have to do a thing. You’ll still get email alerts (if you do now) when I post new stuff. From now on, you’ll be directed to the new site (fingers crossed).
The only caveat goes out to those folks who only follow me on their WordPress reader accounts. You don’t get emails about new posts, but you should still be able to follow me in your reader, you’ll just have to check from time to time and see if I’m active.
The easiest way to fix that is to mosey on over to the new site and sign up for email updates! It’s easy–hey, all the cool kids are doing it! Here’s the link. Just go to the blog on the new site and fill in your email to get updates. Easy.
So when all the new books and such start coming out, now you know where to go to hear about it. Of course, if you want to know even sooner, sign up for my mailing list, The Freeholder Update. If you haven’t already signed up, then welcome! Come on over and get your free book!
Okay, that’s it for now. I just uploaded a book (Dux Bellorum, sequel to Sic Semper Tyrannis) to Amazon for pre-order (my first!). I now have a deadline to beat!! This is a first–I’ve always gone by my schedule when publishing. So, we’ll see how this turns out. Wish me luck! I have a little over 3 weeks to get a 170,000 word book edited and polished.
Okay. I’ll let y’all know when Amazon puts the pre-order up so’s you can check it out. Till then, Ill catch you over at the new site. In the meantime, I got some serious editing to do. Time to break out the tea and get serious.
Have a good ‘un and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
