Changes

I’ve made some changes that you may or may not have noticed. Ok, let’s be serious. You didn’t notice unless you’ve been watching me like a hawk, and you haven’t. Shame on you for not stalking me. Get your head in the game, minion!

First: I finally got around to registering my domain. This site is now officially AdamIckes.com. With that change came a few other corresponding changes. I created a static landing page with links to all of my releases and a brief bio. It still needs some tweaking (adding social media links for example), but I like it. That being said I added a separate “Blog” page that handles displaying all new posts. You can access it from the menu at the top of the page or by visiting adamickes.com/blog. If any of you wants to do something similar but aren’t sure how, just ask. I’d be more than happy to guide you through it.

Second: Zombie Tree, Socks, and 100 tiny tales of terror are all on Smashwords now. Zombie Tree and Socks were there before, but I took them down to try out KDP Select. It wasn’t really worth it so they’re back on Smashwords now. 100 tiny tales of terror is a new addition to the Smashwords catalog.

Third: They will all be on Barnes & Noble as well for you folks with a Nook who don’t like going through Smashwords. Zombie Tree and Socks already are. They were in the same boat as Smashwords. They were taken down to try KDP Select. 100 tiny tales of terror is still processing. It’s supposed to be finished within 72 hours, but who knows when it’ll actually be done. Here’s hoping sooner rather than later.

What do you minions think of the changes? Am I taking things in the right direction? Any suggestions for additional changes?

    Changing the blog name is a good idea, I reckon. It looks more professional especially since you managed to get your actual name.

    As for your static home page, it wouldn’t work so well for me but since you have actual books you’re selling I think it’s a good idea.

    The two changes together make it look more like a professional writer’s site rather than a personal blog, in my opinion 🙂

      That was my thought as well. The two changes together provide a more professional feel to the whole thing. That’s why I went that way. If I don’t take myself seriously how can I expect anyone else to?

    Domain name is a great idea. I was told early on to do that because one never knows when someone else will think about doing it.

    Looks very professional oh master of minions. Seriously Adam the whole thing is an excellent idea. Well done.

    i don’t remember what it looked like before:( but love the crispness of the page. i also like how there’s a bottom instead of that never-ending scroll i can’t seem to get rid of on my blog:) but great job!

    I give it two thumbs up on the changes. I think the name would make it easy to find you / your blog.
