In which I bribe you with fabulous prizes!

I have books

and an official website. Does that make me an author? I’m just starting to think maybe it’s okay to call myself that. “Author” sounds so formal, don’t you think? It’s like the first time someone calls you Mrs. So-and-so after you get married. It just feels weird.

Anyway, the point of this post isn’t to muse about my authorly status. It’s to tell you that my website went live last week. Yay! We’re still updating some things, but it’s pretty much up and running and I’m really excited about it. Here is my book page, with all kinds of quotes and stuff about Personal Demons. And here is my events list. We’re still firming up the schedule, but this is what I have so far. If you’re in Seattle or California and want to come out to chat, I’d love to meet you! =)

And, to celebrate my website going live and my 450 seriously cool followers here on the blog, I’m having a CONTEST! Here’s the deal. One lucky winner will receive a Personal Demons prize pack, including a $25 Amazon gift card, signed bookmarks, a Personal Demons tank top

and Team Luc

and Team Gabe

temporary tattoos. (The tattoos are actual size. The tank top is bigger in real life :p)

All you have to do to enter is check out my website and tell me what you think in comments on this post. I’d love to know if it’s easy to navigate. Do you like the design? Is there enough info? Too much? Anything you would change?

One random winner (must be a blog follower) will be chosen on August 30th. You can recieve one extra entry by following me on twitter @LisaDez and a second extra entry for tweeting this contest or posting it on your blog.

Thanks for your input! You guys rock! =)

  1. Congrats with the book and the launch of your website! :)

    I like that the site almost have everything! Info about the books, your contact info and other social media links are complete, events, etc. :) All that is left is for Personal Demons to come out! :D

  2. You have the book, you have your website and you have fans so yes that makes you an author. Just went on your website and is so cute and mysterious, I did not had problems in browsing it. I really like the idea with the smoke and candle in the header and the little light that sparkles when you put the mouse over the menu. And I really enjoy the colors.

    And please count me in in the giveaway. :D

  4. Congrats on the site and book! I like the design the best. It's so dark and mysterious. And I also like how it's easy to get around because some sites can be so confusing. Can't wait for Personal Demons! Thanks for the giveaway! I'm a follower.

  6. Website looks great! I like that the Personal Demons book cover is the home page. Visual confirmation that I found the right author.

    Most of the issues that I have with author websites tend to be technical, as opposed to visual. I think that I look past the actual appearance. Pretty colors aren't going to make me visit if the the information is missing. But, the navigation is clean and simple, and includes everything that I might want to find out, as a reader and a blogger.

    Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that when I click on the blog link, a new tab opens, so I don't lose the website. That is one of my pet peeves, mostly because it is such a simple coding addition.

    Thank you for offering so many giveaways!

  18. OMG! That website it AMAZING. I love it. I love how you've got infomation about Personal Demons and infomation about your upcoming books. That help your fans know what books you've got out and where they can get them. It is easy to get to wherever you want to go (within the website of course). The design of the website reflects the whole atomosphere of what us fans have got, just from the cover of Personal Demons.
    I think you could improve on the book page; so fans can read an excerpt of Personal demons. But, like you said your still updating things.
    I'm now following you on Twitter aswell, http://twitter.com/HellsLilSaint/following

    Looking forward to september 14th, not long now.XX

  21. Hey Hunny, so I love you and I really want your book epecially if I can get a little summit signed but i figure sucking up is wrong you want hnesty right so here it goes

    (hides behind a bullet proof screen)
    Little bad points
    I think it could be a little more eye catching the name LISA D could stand out a little more maybe make it a little brighter also Lisa Desrochers background could be a little fainter

    Overall the site is great, its easy to navigate around and there is no technical problems so thumbs up

    (sorry for the pinters...can i coome out yet?)

  23. I think your new site is very easy to make my way through and I am VERY computer challenged. So I like it. I really like the dark background - helps my old eyes see everything clearly.
    Congratulations on Personal Demons. I can't wait to read it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really like the site and it is easy to navigate. The pictures and level of openness you have with the readers, letting us in a little, is refreshing. I would say, I was a little thrown off that the background didn't change as you navigate through the webpage. I only say that because it is so well laid out and the work is beautiful, I would love to see more themed backgrounds to the area of the page we are on. Other then that, amazing. I love it.

  25. Ouu I love it! It's like Phantom of the Opera-esque. And I love the fire. :) Very easy to navigate too (which is ALWAYS a good thing)

  48. lol I know plenty of other authors who don't have websites, so maybe it can be counted as +5 in Author Support Gear? XD

    I got the ARC a couple days ago and I'm waiting to finish my game before devouring it (my sister however read it in one sitting and then demanded I find her book 2. she wasn't happy when I said 'but its not OUT YET').

    As for the website! I do like the design--the front page isn't cluttered, its easy to navigate, no flashing images or over-abundance of images. I checked out random links and they all seemed to connect so that's a plus! Also the text on background is easy to read and easy on the eyes (+5 for loving your readers enough to do that).

    Are you going to be expanding the 'News' section?

  58. I personally prefer the 800×600 resolution for websites so that I don’t have to scroll up and down & the site will also look better on mobile devices. Also, the color scheme could be improved to make the site look more appealing. Other than that, I like your site. It is not overwhelming and is easy to figure out.

    First of all congratulations on having your baby in your hot little hands and for having your own website. It is dark and delicious. The only suggestion I might have is to incorporate a little bit of gabe into it. Like a page that was half and half, just an idea :)

  70. Hey Congrats on the debut, I have been hearing a lot about this book, and the more I hear about it the more I want to read it. Cant wait for it to be released in Australia.

    I love the new web site, its very creative. The first thing that caught my attention was the main header-I just love the colours used, the font and manuscript. I like how it's easy to navigate and how the headings are nicely set out and easy to see. The information supplied under each topic is well detailed and steps to certain things are easily understandable. I like how in the contact section you have links to the sub headings listed at the top of the page, allowing faster and easier access to information.

  78. Hi Lisa!

    The website looks neat! I had no trouble at all looking around stuff, the colors make an impression, the smoky effects makes it all seem mysterious, and those music sheets in the background that look to be on fire were a nice touch. Also love the font used to spell your name on top.

  84. Love the header! mysterious-ish! yes easy to navigate and easy to load as well! The infos aren't too much! Personally, i would make the text/info area less plain, maybe with a background or something. (that's just me!) But really, nice enough :D

  86. I think the site is amazing. It's really intuitive to use, and it's beautiful. My favorite part is the image at the top of the page. I also like the way the links on the left light up when you mouse over them.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

  87. OMG! I love it! It's so... demon-ish. LOL. Black and red are awesome colors for Personal Demons. I personally love the header. And when you point the mouse arrow on the page list, the eclipse-ish effect on the letters is so cool! The blogger, fb,etc buttons look awesome too! I want those buttons... 8D

    All you need now ARE the trailers!

  95. I liked your website. The header is pretty cool, it almost has a 3D effect going on. It's simple, which makes it easy to navigate. I liked the uncluttered feel. The only thing that stumped me was the flavicon. Is there a meaning behind it?

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  98. I liked the website. It was easy to navigate and had a cool design. But maybe it could use a contest link so you can advertise any Personal Demons contests you're having, like this one for example. Just an idea. I follow this blog and I follow you on Twitter.

    Wow, the website has a really dark theme but I think it suits your books. I have to say it's really easy to navigate, but not much to do as I only visited for 1 minute or so. Maybe add some related games, etc?

  131. Hey, first of all congrats! I have also wanted to write for most of my life and have not done it so I know how amazing it must feel to get those books out!!! I checked out your site and I think it's nice, but I personally wish you were just showcasing Personal Demons on the front page right now, because it has a great cover and I think it should really grab people! Maybe you should have the others without a cover yet a little under or ? Anyway I am now very much wanting to read this book, I bet it's great! I am following you via gfc
