Welcome to The Dungeon

Ahhh. Do you have any idea how long I’ve waited to say that? (Again.)

But, yes, it’s true—we are finally back to a real Dungeon that Mistress Heidi can truly feel at home in, as well as a wonderful new look for all of HeidiBetts.com.happy dance Pictures, Images and Photos

So what do you think?  Gorgeous, right?  We have the very talented Jeannie Ruesch of Will Design for Chocolate to thank for that, believe me.  She took my handful of ideas & requests & made them about a thousand times better than I ever could have imagined.

And she’s not finished yet!  This is still very much a work in progress, with tweaks & alterations left to be made, so please bear with us while we get everything right where we want it.  When it’s finished, though, I think you’ll agree that it’s just fabulous & is going to be such a fun place to hang out.

Today is also the second official release day for THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  If you haven’t already bought or ordered your copy, be sure to do so this weekend when you’re out & about.  And if your favorite bookstore doesn’t have BITE in stock, ask them to order one for you…along with a few extra for the shelves. 😉

By the way, I owe a small apology to any Kindle owners who may have dropped by Tuesday to celebrate THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS‘s first official release day.  You see, I mentioned that you would be able to purchase & download your copy of BITE that very day, but it turns out the Kindle release is actually today, too.  Whoops.  But now you really can buy & download your Kindle Edition, if you like.  Sorry about that. :blush:

I also have to take the opportunity to once again push my “Fang-tastic Vampire Swag Bag Giveaway.”  All you have to do to enter is help me rebuild my mailing list (which was completely wiped out over the summer 😥 ) by signing up for my new Newsletter—either for the first time or again.  Pretty please, with a sprig of mistletoe hanging over your favorite vampire hottie’s handsome head. :vampire:

Here are the deets…

    And am I the only one loving these new emoticons? :thumbsup

  5. Pamela Cayne says:

    Holy crap! Sorry–I didn’t know the sunglasses guy would be so freaking big, but if there’s a dude in the dungeon, I guess it’s safe to assume he’s going to be well endowed… :winkwink

  6. Dee says:

    And I get to see my boy in between both bookstore jaunts. Got to love weekends…

      Yay, Dee! Remember to take your ST stuff with you & bling the places up.

      And even tho I don’t know him, say hello to the boy for me. 😉
