Check out the new blog features!

Woo hoo! Look at all the new tabs in my revised blog. It was great fun doing this, and I think the results look good and make the blog more functional. Let me give you the guided tour.

You're on the Home tab now, where you can read and comment on the latest posts.

Mortal Path Series
A description of the paranormal thrillers I write as Dakota Banks.

Deliverance Trailer
Sparkly new and waiting for you! You can even see a full screen version by clicking on the symbol to the right of the YouTube logo on the control bar. Press ESC to return to a normal screen view. I made this trailer myself--it was very interesting.

Give me permission and I'll get cozy with you - in your mailbox at least.

Ask the Author - Anything
This is an online Q&A opportunity. Pretend we're sitting across the table from each other having a friendly chat. I'm friendly, aren't you? Also pretend that my feet are glued to the floor and I can't escape as I am peppered with questions. You've got the picture. I've wanted to start this feature for quite a while, and the blog revision was the perfect time.

Contact Me
Provides information on about my agent and publicist, and a place to contact me by email. You can ask questions here that you don't care to have posted on Ask the Author for everyone to see. Or just drop me a note. I love notes.

The color scheme is all new, and I hope easy on the eyes. At the top of the left sidebar, you can access my Facebook and Twitter accounts. On the right sidebar, there are links to my two websites, as Dakota Banks and Shirley Kennett. Immediately below, you'll see a blog button that you can display on your blog or website. Just copy the code below the image, and insert the code in the HTML of your blog or website where you want the button to appear. The button is linked to the Dakota Banks website. If you haven't been there in a while, you might want to take a look - the site has a fresh face.

Any questions, comments, or suggestions, you know where I am. Right here, with my feet glued to the floor.


  1. I like it! It does look easier on the eye and more organised! :)

    1. Thanks, Kara. It's a big change for me.
