The group blog that I am a part of has had a makeover. Come take a look. We are really happy with the results!

Very nice, Marg!

And please do read the Victory Nelson series by Tanya Huff. I've got them all and really got into reading them. Tudor born Henry Fitzroy is such a cool vamp. I watched the TV series Blood Ties prior to cancellation as well.

Oh - I didn't get past Reading Adventures! On to Tapestry!!

Tapestry looks really nice as well. I'm one who prefers black type on white background for readability. The simple and concise sections for author blogs and other sections is well done also. I get lost with some of the scatter shot blogs I've seen around the last few years. I've marked it as a favorite now.

I hadn't had any interest in reading that series, until they mentioned who Henry is! Now my attention has definitely been caught!
