You probably wouldn’t know it from reading the content of this blog, but in real life I am a graphic and web designer as well as a writer. I made this site, using WordPress and a CSS theme I built. Before The Mossy Skull, there was In the Lee of a Stunted Pine, which ran on MovableType. I also designed ChessMaine.net, a chess news site which won Best State Website from the Chess Journalists of America in 2007 and 2009, the fabulous indie ebook site Weightless Books, and many other sites.
The point is, I’ve been doing this kind of thing for a while now, I’m pretty good at it, and I can always use more of it to do. Without it, I wouldn’t have enough money to keep myself alive, let alone keep writing on the side. Writing, not unlike crime, doesn’t really pay.
