the Author


Posted in DAW, Queen of the Dead, Miscellaneous.

This is my new home on the web.

It has, among other things, a home page — which is largely meant for people who surf by and want infor­ma­tion, rather than inter­ac­tion. I couldn’t actu­ally figure out how to transfer the blog subscriber list from the word​press​.com blog to this one, so if you want to continue to get email alerts when a new post goes up, you’ll need to subscribe here.

I have a new Face­book page — which is on the sidebar.

I have a Tumblr account which I’ve never really used, and I’m consid­ering using it for ques­tions & answers — as in, I’ll answer ques­tions there if they’re asked. I’ll also continue to answer ques­tions here.

I have a new email address: michelle@​michellesagara.​com.

And I have a new book, due on the first of May. The first chapter (well, prologue and the first two chap­ters) is avail­able here: Silence preview.

    Congrats on the great looking website. Will you post a little some­thing to your blog over the next week or so to help those of us moving over the Word­Press blog make sure we are connected? Love your blogs and would not want to miss anything:)

  2. js says:

    Wow, I love the new website!

  3. Thunderchild says:

    I like it and I’m prac­ti­cally the living defi­n­i­tion of impartial.

  4. michelle says:

    I did not notice that the comments required moder­a­tion if at least one previous comment hadn’t been approved >.. It’s fixed now, sorry! 

  5. Joey says:

    Congrat­u­la­tions! Why isn’t there a photo gallery where we can post, um, pictures we take of your books in the wild?

  6. Thomas Wiegand says:

    Only twenty-nine pages? I thought a prologue and two chap­ters would be at least 100 pages. I look forward to getting the book and enjoying.

  7. Kel says:

    The new website looks wonderful!

    (I’m mostly commenting to get back on the noti­fi­ca­tion list, but it really does look great. : ) )

  8. Sora says:

    Lovely new site!!

    Will you be having RSS from the new site as well? I currently follow via that method, and would like to update my reader accordingly… :)

  9. Paul Howard says:

    Looks good.

  10. mary allen says:

    I am really waiting for both Cast in Peril and the next House War Book. Will the world press site go away?

  11. sarah says:

    Hi Sora,

    Thanks for mentioning this — I didn’t notice the links for these feeds weren’t included anymore. I’ve added them in the sidebar now, so subscribe away! Let me know if you need more specific feeds and I can dig them up for you.

  12. cmchan says:

    It looks wonderful, Michelle! Congrat­u­la­tions. I’m curious to know what Sarah used for this blog if it’s not WordPress.

  13. sarah says:

    It’s Word­Press! It’s a little customized though in terms of functionality.

  14. Rebecca says:

    Love the new site. And I’m excited to see you on tumblr. I like the idea of a Q & A. I always love places where I can ask ques­tions about my fav char­ac­ters and writing processes. 


  15. Lara Beneshan says:

    Your new website is looking great! Congrats on this page and the shiny new Face­book page as well!

    I like the overall format, every­thing seems easy to find.

    I also wanted to mention (along with many of your other fans) that unlike your editor, I am wildly happy to hear that there will be 2 more House War books instead of only one! I read very quickly, and so few authors publish weighty tomes that take me longer than a single day to read. =)

  16. Sora says:

    Awesome!! Thank you so much! :D

  17. Reid Ellis says:

    Nice! Love the font. Hard to select text on an iPad though — e.g. Your new email address. Maybe make it a link?

  18. ElizabethN says:

    Really like the new site and the face­book page. Can’t quite figure out tumblr if you should use it for Q&A — keep getting “request denied.”

  19. Michael says:

    Very nice! I admit that I am not as big a fan of the front page (I would rather it just open to your blog) but I can under­stand why that is an impor­tant feature.

    Really looking forward to Silence! I suppose if I can’t have Battle (or War), then it is the next best thing!

  20. Michael says:

    Oh, and I think there is a problem with the chap­ters of Silence you uploaded. Were you aware that it only goes to page 29? Clearly an oversight…

  21. hjbau says:

    Looks good. Happy writing.

  22. Genna Warner says:

    Love the new look. Can’t wait to read Silence.

  23. michelle says:

    Cast in Peril is a 25 September 2012 release, and the next House War book is a January 2013 release. The old word­press site will not go away, but it won’t be updated. All of the posts made their have been trans­ferred to the new site.

  24. michelle says:

    As Sarah said, it’s a word­press install, but I think “slightly” customized is a minor understatement. 

    And all of the work is hers; I believe I could teach myself how to set up html but I am in no way compe­tent to handle any of the graphic design.

  25. michelle says:

    It’s a link on the “About the Author” page, if that helps >.>

  26. michelle says:

    I think it’s working now. Or at least I could ask myself ques­tions anony­mously, now.

  27. michelle says:


    (I’m not a fan of front pages, but usually just bookmark/RSS blogs. But people who don’t actu­ally want to read blog posts, but just want infor­ma­tion, prob­ably don’t find the blog page as imme­di­ately helpful.)

  28. HILDA D. RODRIGUEZ says:

    Like your new website. I’m not very apt with these websites. I found going through Word Press very easy to find infor­ma­tion. Need to explore it fully to find the way around.

  29. Estara says:

    Hah, I didn’t see the preview of this before getting a noti­fi­ca­tion about this post on GoodReads. So some­times GR is really useful.

    Thanks for the excerpt!

    Love the look of this new site. It seems to be a lot easier on my eyes (liter­ally and figu­ra­tively). I see that your Live Journal is still up and a link is provided here. However, it hasn’t been updated since, forever. Will you even­tu­ally be taking it down? Just wondering if I can delete another bookmark. :)
    My local B & N has failed me on Silence. I still do not have it. .
