Whew. What a week. Let me attempt to focus on three quick things to share with you.
- Well, if you’re reading this right here on ErikaDreifus.com, you’ve probably noticed: The “new” site has launched! It uses a different content management system (still WordPress, but now the “Gutenberg” editor), which I am still very much in the process of learning. So please bear with me on that—and with the various content updates around here that remain to be made. But I hope you like what you see—and I hope that you find certain upgraded features, such as blog and newsletter subscriptions, to b working more efficiently. Once again, I want to extend my sincere and abundant thanks to Jeremiah Tolbert at Clockpunk Studios, who has made all of this possible.
- Getting the site updated has been one big project on my pre-publication to-do list ahead of the November 5 pub date for Birthright: Poems. And now that that’s (essentially) done, you can begin to learn a lot more about the book. To begin: The blurbs are now all online! (Time for more gratitude: I can’t thank Matthew Lippman, Sivan Butler-Rotholz, and Richard Chess enough for their incredible endorsements.)
- Guess what else you can do now? You can put Birthright on your “want-to-read” shelf on Goodreads! (If you write about books and you’re interested in an advance electronic copy, please drop me a note with information about where your book-related work is featured; I’d be delighted to have you consider covering Birthright.)
So, there we are. It’s a lot, right? But it’s all pretty exciting.
