Most people seemed to like the new template, after I changed the colors to more neutral shades and tweaked it here and there. Thanks to everyone for your feedback.
I’ve had several requests for a less glaringly white background and slightly larger text, and I’ve just implemented those changes. Please let me know if this works for you.
If the majority of my readers like things as they are now, I’ll leave it at that for the present. Next year I hope to have a more professional template, perhaps including my own Web site – but that’ll have to wait until the four books I have scheduled for this year are all finished and published.
