I couldn’t change that clashy blue font on the old theme, so I switched to a different one and totally revamped the site! What do you guys think of the changes? You can actually talk to me again, because I’ve enabled comments. I found a widget that lets people give their consent per the GDPR guidelines and covers the WordPress workings that I can’t see. Yay!
I hope you like the new design. So far, I’m pretty happy with it. I’m also really glad that people can comment on my posts again. I’ve missed interacting with everyone.
Also, I realized the other day that my new logo has the same colors as the qenderqueer flag. It was pure serendipity. I love it when things like that happen!
My website has a snazzy new banner created by the talented Kyleigh Castronaro of Free to Be Covers and Designs. She also designed the logo using my little spirit animal, the fox, and two of my favorite colors. If you’re an author, you should really check out her Facebook page here. She has premade book covers at fantabulous prices, and she also does custom work.
Why foxes? Because I love them. Like a genderqueer person (like me), they are sort of a creature between–not quite a dog, not quite a cat. They are their own unique beastie. I’ve loved them since I was small. My first story written in English (previous attempts were penned in scribbles) was about saving a family of foxes from hunters. I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve always been drawn to trickster gods and trickster animals. I suppose it’s because they live by their wits, depending on their brains more than their brawn. They’re also often misunderstood. Two of my favorites, foxes and corvids (ravens, crows, jays), are often seen as nuisances or are associated with evil. No animal is ever evil.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the new look!
