New Look, New Book!

In honour of the upcoming 24 Hours Paris launch (well, not really -- I just got tired of the blue background), I have decided to go with a cleaner look for my blog. Hope you find it easier to read.

In other news, I recently wrote an article for BonjourParis.com about my Parisian explorations beyond the Eiffel Tower. You can read more here.

And in even more news, my alter-ego Talli Roland (my pen-name for fiction) might have some good news to share soon about a fiction project! Stay tuned or watch out for Prospera Publishing's bi-monthly newsletter for more details coming soon. I'd love it if you'd join me over at my fiction blog where I promise I am much better at returning comments and follows (I've been very lame here, I know!). If you tweet, you can also follow me as Talli there, too!

Why the pen name? There's no element of secrecy; it's just to draw a line between my work as a travel writer and a fiction writer. I'll still be updating this blog regularly with London and travel news, as well as tidbits from my daily life (exciting, I know), but my fiction blog is more focused on all the delightful things writers struggle with, including writer's arse. It's lighter and fluffier and loads of fun to write and I'm really enjoying all the interaction with other bloggers from around the world.

Thanks to everyone for continuing to follow me along on this roller-coaster journey (especially those who know me -- or follow me -- as both Marsha and Talli)! Fingers crossed for future developments!

I like the new look. It's nice and clean. I think my blog is beginning to look cluttered, so you may have inspired me.

Thanks Theresa! Something had to be done. I hate clutter!

Ooh this is lovely.

I've considered changing the theme on my blog, but I know playing with my blog widgets and layout is just another way of procrastinating!

Love the new layout.

Love the new look! Especially the pattern across the top.
I've started worrying that mine is cluttered too, but I've set the fonts separately to the theme and now I'm afraid to lose 'em...
