I changed the banner and the icons, as I was getting tired of the old ones. Don’t it look puuuurdy?
The model in the pic is none other than Celine Dion. It was snapped during the photo session for her new French language album D’Elles, which is available now in stores outside of North America, and online for those who can’t get it in the stores (ahem, us American folks and our Canadian cousins). All the songs on it are about women dealing with the pleasures and pain of life and love, and written by female authors who have considerable amount of fame themselves in the French literary world. Some of the authors called upon have penned song lyrics for the first time on D’Elles! Knowing all that, I thought it all dovetailed perfectly with this site — maintained by a female author who mostly writes for the pure pleasure of it.
Anyway, the good news about the banner change is, although it’s “taller”, it’s less than half the size in kilobytes of the previous one. So, it takes less than half the time to load! Huzzah! 🙂
More writings will be on the way, too… as soon as I unbury them. Spring cleaning is going on at Chez Melissa, don’tcha know. I know, I know. I realize that I keep promising I’ll add new stuff, but I haven’t been doing much on the site lately. But only because I don’t know what box I put my old album reviews and poetry in. I’m trying to find ’em, I swear! :/
Oh, and I joined a bunch of directories and webrings, too. They’re all on the “Listed” page. There’s also information about the PHP script Storyline which I use (in modified form) to run this site. It’s now free for download right on my Author Info page.
