We have facelift!!

April 28, 2010 at 21:32 (Uncategorized)

The new Darren Shan web site went live today. It’s still at the same URL: http://www.darrenshan.com The site is still being worked on, so you might find some broken links and missing information. We’ll also be tweaking things slightly — for instance, the links on the left hand side of the home page will change, to make it easier to access the News sections and subscribe. There’s also been a bit of downtime, when we’ve had to temporarily suspend the site to deal with certain issues. But most of it is now in place, and the rest should be sorted out within the next few days. I’m very excited about it — I think it will make the site a lot more interactive and fun to browse. Early feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, so hopefully YOU will enjoy it too!!! If you have any problems with the new site, the old site is still in place and fully browsable — the link for the old home page is: http://www.darrenshan.com/oldsite.html

I spent today doing bits and pieces for the new site, and also getting ready for my tour, which starts in Portlaoise this Thursday, before moving on to Newbridge, Dublin and then the UK. All the dates can be found either on the new web site or in the Shanville Monthly on the old site. At my events, I’ll be reading out a mix of old material and new — I’ve brought along a varied selection, so I have plenty to choose from, to keep things more interesting for me! I also plan to read out an extract from Procession of the Dead at a few of my public events, for the first time ever!!!!

Right — I’m off to pack my bag ahead of my start in the morning! If you’re coming to see me at any of my tour events, I’ll be seeing you SOON!!! If not, you’ll be hearing from me here shortly — I’ll blog as much as I can while on the road. Ciao for now!!

    i hate to be mean, but i dont like the new website as much as the old one. i liked the gothic-ness of the old site; i even used it as inspiration for my ICT GCSE coursework.
