Welcome to My New Website!!

After four years, TraceyDevlyn.com got a facelift. My previous website was beautiful and I already miss it, but I'm super happy with the final design of the new site.

The former design focused on the historical suspense aspect of my writing. I wanted my new site to not so much reflect what I was writing at the moment, but to zero in on promises inherent in my reading. Promises like intrigue, suspense, nature, romance, independent, passionate heroines, strong, vulnerable heroes, risks, surprises, and outside the box writing.

In essence, I wanted a brand for my writing -- not a category. Andrew and Scott nailed it, don't you think?

Here's a before and after pic...
