I’ve done some re-decorating here at my home on the web. Welcome!
My old site served me well and through it I have connected with so many of you. But it was time for a make-over, and besides, I wanted to make sure that I was accessible to those of you who come here to visit on your phones. Yes, JanePorter.com is now fully responsive — visit me here via your phone or your tablet, the site will now be as easy-to-read and easy-to-interact-with regardless of how you come here.
Why make this big change? Because I adore you all.
I loved my red site, and over the years I poured all kinds of content into it to help extend your reading experience with me. To be honest, I’d forgotten about some of the cool stuff I’d posted years ago to support so many of my books, classic romances and modern lit alike. It’s been like getting surprised with a This is Your Life party each time my webmistress asked me: “And what about this feature?” There is no way I could have gone through it all at once — fourteen years of Book Extras and cool photos and articles and videos… But as it was fed to me piece by piece, and I got to enjoy the content all over again, I got to thinking… And then it hit me: THROWBACK THURSDAYS!
Right now this new JanePorter.com features dedicated pages for only a handful of my books — just the most recent ones (and even for these, not everything is in place yet — the website is a work in progress, thanks for your patience!). If you go to my bookshelf, you’ll see them all, of course. But while some click over to excerpts for you to enjoy, many simply lead to the Kindle page on Amazon. With so many of my previously out-of-print books now available in eBook format, I didn’t want anyone to have to look that hard while Team Jane was working at converting all the wonderful old content into this new format. There’s a lot more coming, including longer excerpts, more international covers and links (because I know so many of you are coming here from outside of the English-speaking world), all that previously buried content, and then, here and there, I might be able to dig up something totally new.
These Throwback Thursdays won’t start up until after the holidays… But in the meantime, please head over to my bookshelf… Help me grow this new site. Please tell me which of my books that click over to Amazon and not yet to a JanePorter.com page you would like to see come back to your viewing enjoyment first? Leave the title below in a comment, and I’ll pick one commenter before December 1st to receive a fun package of some vintage promo swag from years gone by, a $10 Starbucks gift card, and a book, too, of course.
I hope you all enjoy the new site, and how easy it is to get around. Of course, as with any brand new site, there are bound to be hiccups — please don’t post those in the comments or on social networks, my web team doesn’t check there. But if you report errors via my site page, the web team can fix it quickly. I appreciate the assistance.
I’m really looking forward to lots of reader interaction here on the new JanePorter.com. Welcome!
