Welcome to the New Cosmic Laire!


Howdy! I am by all means not a graphic designer, but thanks to a couple stock photos and the incredible talents of Lisa Campbell, this blog is finally at a place where I've always imagined it - a haven for science fiction and fantasy in this little corner of cyberspace.

Many functions are the same. Just looks different. Have a look and tell us what you think. Can you read this? How's the background?

And what better way to celebrate than by welcoming new members! You guys came at a great time. Please visit these brave newcomers!

Update: Besides the new look, last week was a writing streak! 10K words read and edited through, leaving Woven with another 20K to go. Entering falling action and climax territory, so yeah. Should wrap this up in a couple weeks or less. And a good thing, too. I'm simply itching to get started on this zombie novel. Pardon my scratching.

How was your weekend? Get any writing done? Find any new blogs that are super cool?

I'm David, and the Mars Curiosity Rover landed successfully!

  27. PS there is a 'subscribe to:' text on the bottom that I can't read because it's the same color as the dark streaks on the left. I don't know how much it matters to you, but just so you know.
