My web peeps just updated my website and I love it! They incorporated one of John’s photos into the background, which makes it feel really personal to me. The featured book on the home page is now Kiss River and you can click on the cover to read chapter one if you like. Kiss River, a re-issue, is the middle book of the Keeper of the Light trilogy and I’m so pleased it’s once again available. I promise to blog more about it later this week.

I still have to update my photo gallery and a few other things on the site, but I couldn’t wait any longer to unveil the new design. I hope you’ll spend some time there, checking out the latest contest and printing out the printable booklist so you can keep my books straight. Lots of work goes into a change like this, so please let me know if you see any links that don’t work properly or other hiccups. Thanks for stopping by!

    Love it Diane! Of course it’s extra special because of John’s fabulous photography…what I really love about it are the colors from John’s photo…the gorgeous blues, oranges/reds and violets really pull me ‘in’ and give a sense of overall warmth to the site.
    The new cover for KISS RIVER is so beautiful and will definitely be a gift from me to friends for the Cmas season.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I’m so glad you like the look! Hailey, the picture was taken on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, which just happen to be the setting for Kiss River.

    Love the new website. It has been a while since I’ve been here. I am so busy reading and reviewing lately. Also have to use my daughter’s and Library computer. Mine is down.
    God bless your holidays. I would love to be entered into the contest.

    The new website is spectacular and it’s amazing how many of your books come to mind while studying the photo. John is truly talented. I became acquainted with the Keeper of the LIghthouse trilogy about eight years ago. The librarian at the branch nearest me recommended them. I think you moved to Raleigh shortly after I read those books, which is where I lived for 16 years before moving to western NC in ’97. I’ve read all of your books since and my youngest granddaughter, sister and 90 yr. old neighbor are now fans of Diane Chamberlain. Thank you, thanks to John and thanks for the many years of pleasure derived from reading your books.
