Website Revamp

Spain
By popular request... a complete redesign and revamp of my website debuted today.

Same content. New look. More bells, more whistles, more functionality (we hope).

There will be a few bumps as we ease through the transition, but we should have everything smoothed out and running well before too long.

Let us know your thoughts.

A massive improvement for sure. Will definitely have to poke around it later, but right now I'm at work, and the internet connection here is atrocious. Though like others, I kinda already miss the kinda goofy colors and nigh antiquated old site :p

I like the design (and the typography!), but I'm afraid the technology is somewhat outdated. In 2013, nobody should use table layouts anymore. :/

Still a lot better than the previous one! More fun to navigate and to look at.

The new site looks great! (Although I will miss the old-school charm of the previous version.)

Change is scary :)
No, not really. It is however astounding.

I delighted in your stubbornness in maintaining a link to the nineties via the old website build. However, I am pleased with the new look and I am glad to see your site jump forward twenty years.

Thanks!

I think the new site looks great! The only question I have is where is the preview chapter section for The Winds of Winter? I may just be missing it, but was unable to find it.

Found a bump?
The new site looks amazing!
By the way, I think I checked every link, where are the sample chapters?

Site is looking nice, well done (not you, obviously :P).

Sadly I can't find the sample chapter anymore...

Luv it except...
Love the look of the new website. I visit your site frequently and think the change is great. I have only one question though...where do I now find the little excerpts you occasionally post from Winds of Winter. There was one there on Arianne and I can't seem to find it now on the new site. I live just a couple hours north of you and I truly cannot wait for the Winds of Winter to blow my way. I am dying to find out what's happening to Arya :D

A New Beginning!
It's been probably close to 10 years that I've been visiting your site scouring for sample chapters, info on appearances, read your musings on politics, books, collectible knights, and your oft hilarious football gripes about NY/J teams...but this is the first time I don't have to hide the page I'm visiting at work because it's not an obvious non-work related purple/pink page I'm surfing! The update was, yes, a lot past due, but there is something about those spinning icons that I will miss! And how else will a certain 'Lost' writer make fun of you for?

The update also means one more thing, one less monkey on that back!

Love it!
I always liked the old site, especially all the different House banners, but it sure looks sharp now.

I MISS THE HERALDRY
The new site is slick and modern, but I MISS THE HERALDRY. Is there a way to incorporate it into the new design?

Sample Chapters
I see Lots of folks asking about the Sample chapter pages, it is under Book News titles Winds of winter you can find it now if you use the search bar at the top right of the site and you have to look a bit. Thats a good point so keep checking and I will have a drop down menu tab added in the next few weeks making the sample chapters easier to find. :)

Re: Sample Chapters
That only shows the previously released Theon chapter. Where is the Arianne chapter?

Is it practical to imagine your old Max Headroom script could be made available in some form?

Re: Max
Unlikely. I do not own any rights to the character or world, so printing that script would put me in violation of copyright. I'd need to get permission from the currents right holder... and to tell the truth, there's been so much corporate reshuffling since 1987, I would not even who to ask.

Great Website...WHERES TEH BEER?
Awesome redesign. Clean, easy to navigate, and much better organization of the content!

On a random note...I CANT FIND THE IRON THRONE BEER ANYWHERE!!?%!#% Every place I find that carries it only gets in one case at a time during the middle of the day when I'm at work. And they all sell out within an hour. Any idea if they'll make more of it in the future due to high demand?

website overhaul
Love the main-page overhaul. Looks vibrant, exciting and very modern. I especially like the prominent links for the Game of Thrones HBO series where it's easy to find the latest information.

Enjoy Hollywood for the season premier! I'll be glued to my couch watching GoT every Sunday evening! :)

Nice!
The new site looks great, but I noticed you no longer have the page where you sell some of your own stock of books. Have you finally cleared out enough space and won't be selling them anymore, are they all sold-out, or will some still occasionally show up? I already own all the ones you had available, but always checked to see if any new offerings suddenly became available.

Re: Nice!
The book page will return, but we're adding a shopping cart, and it's complex. Be down for a while, I fear.
Excellent! - cyberalien - . th, 12:00 am (UTC) - Expand
