TSM Davies is Moving

My website is moving. My blog has been on WordPress for more than 5 years now, but the time has come to make a change. What does this mean for my followers?

My new site is easy to find: tsmdavies.com! I wanted to own my own domain, instead of a free WordPress hosted one. While I could purchase the domain through WordPress, buying it through another site was cheaper, and I was able to purchase a number of years at a time.

I also wanted to have special features that required HTML coding that WordPress wouldn’t allow me to use without paying for site upgrades. The new host makes it quicker (and much easier) to add the code.

A newsletter! I am starting an email newsletter to help my audience grow, and help my readers stay connected with me easier. Sadly, WordPress would not allow this without learning how to use PHP. I tried. I failed. My new host makes it quick and easy.

I apologize for the inconvenience to my WordPress followers. If you subscribe to my newsletter on the new site, you will receive updates and links to my new blog posts directly to your inbox. Everyone that subscribes will receive an exclusive story as well.

After meeting Scott Lynch at GenCon 2013 I was impressed with his advice on writing, and with the rave reviews he received from other authors and editors in attendance as well. His book, so I was told, was clever, creative, and intense with action. The uniqueness of the characters and the promise for a book filled with action had me itching to read it. Continue reading
