You know what? My Lorraine name has been in print for almost two years. Well, you wouldn't know it by my website hits. And that's why I spent the last week talking with my web designer. We did an overhaul, and you can see the results here: LorraineBartlett.com
Go on, take a look -- then come back and tell me what you think.
And in another effort to get the Lorraine name out there, I'm participating in a book giveaway over at Goodreads. I'm giving away TWELVE advance review copies of ONE HOT MURDER:

How do you enter? If you're a member of Goodreads, you log in and click on the link for the book. They also ask that you add the book to your to-be-read list.

I'll be updating my Lorna Barrett site in the next couple of weeks, and getting new Facebook banners.
