After almost three months of researching and developing, I’m ready (mostly) to share my new home with you! New website, new blog, NEW LOOK! I’m still futzing around here and there and I’ll be adding more features, but…
This is my core home and I’m over the moon crazy about it!
As much as I adored my previous website design, I’m branching into new worlds with my writing. In addition to my contemporary, historical, steampunk, and paranormal romance tales, I’m now writing historical mysteries and I have plans for contemporary mysteries as well. Adopting a more mainstream look seemed wise. Plus, it’s a great way to shake things up and inspire new growth.
Speaking of change, you may have noticed that my header incorporates two names now: Beth Ciotta & Elisabetta Ciotta. (Thank you for the cool logo Elle J Rossi of EJR Digital Art!) I’m hoping that the target audiences for my romances and mysteries will crossover, but that’s not a given. The last thing I want to do is to disappoint a romance fan who knows me Beth Ciotta and yet they buy a BC book and–WHAT?–it’s a mystery! Or… Imagine if I published a historical mystery as Beth Ciotta, won over some new hardcore mystery fans who then bought another Beth Ciotta book only to learn–WHAT?–it’s a romance and there’s–GAK!–sex! Therefore, for marketing purposes, I’m adopting a pen name (albeit close to my real name) for the mysteries. Check back for updates on the blossoming career and booklist of Elisabetta Ciotta. 😉
Anyhoo, that’s the scoop! Please browse my new website and let me know what you think. Oh, hey. If you see a black&white photo, hover over it and it will turn to color! Although that only seems to work if your browser is Chrome or Firefox. That special feature doesn’t work with Explorer. Not sure why. All photos just show in color.
In celebration of my new look I’m giving away a gift package consisting of 1 Impossible Dream Tote Bag and 4 signed books–Beauty & the Biker, In the Mood for Love, Into the Wild, and On the Naughty List.
Comment for a chance to win and let me know where you’re from (state or country)! I’m curious about my readers! Winner will be randomly chosen and announced HERE on Tuesday, May 2. Thank you for celebrating with me!
