A Kate Lowry Mystery: The Haunting of Pemberly Brown

Ta-Da! We have a new title, a fancy new website AND we're going on submission early next week.

Holy. Crap.

P.S.
If you notice any typos on the website, please let us know. It's very easy for us to make changes.

P.P.S.
Recognize any of the fabulous photography on the site? Big thanks to Grey Street Girl for generously allowing us to use so many of her gorgeous photographs.

Yay so glad I checked my blog list before heading to bed tonight. I got to see your super awesome site...love it girls! Must feel great to see it all come together.

Oh and the title - soooo good. I am excited for you and I don't even know you. haha!

The photography is beautiful. And the pic of you as kids is so stinkin cute. Nice touch!

Thanks for sharing. Gives me a kick in the ass to get my site up and running. My sister is helping me and we've been seriously slacking.

WOW!!! So impressive! Pretty soon we are going to be commenting on your fashion choices as the paparazzi snap photos of you two starlits! ;-) Will you be doing a reality TV show?

Love the new title...LOVE THE SITE. And can't wait to hear you sold the book!!!

Kat said...

I love the site! It's so well put together- gorgeous!

Little Ms J said...

Site is gorgeous, music is so fitting and I love love love that you used Grey Street Girl's photos! I didn't quite squee, but I'm going to pat myself on the back for a matchmaking. I love her typewriter series!

I'm so excited for you girls!

Lisa and Laura said...

Yay! We're so glad that you guys like it. Thank you so much for helping us create our FAQs section...amazing how hard it is to write FAQs when you don't get any!

Rebecca - Isn't it funny how you meet people on-line and follow their day-to-day lives and you sort of end up feeling like you know them? We get so excited when we read about blog friends finding success. Ahhh...the power of the interwebs.

LitGirl - Ha! Something tells me the paparazzi would have a field day with the yoga pants and t-shirts that we regularly run around in. And sadly I think we'd probably decline a reality show. Somehow the idea of having my life picked apart on national television is just not appealing...but you'd better believe I'll continue picking apart other people's lives! Total double standard, I know.

Christine - It will probably be a while before we get to write that post. Ugh, I have no idea how we're going to pass the time. Time to get cranking on Pride and Purity, I guess.

Kat - Thank you so much!!! It was actually really easy to do. Even for two technologically challenged people like us.

LMJ - You are quite the matchmaker! Seriously, thank you for introducing us to Eva. She is absolutely incredible and SO talented. Many of her photographs perfectly capture how we envisioned Pemberly Brown. It feels a little like fate that we were introduced. And go ahead and squee! We'd never have met her if we hadn't met(and loved) you first. Why am I suddenly singing Fiddler on the Roof?

Katie said...

OMG - I am going over right now!!!!

slhastings said...

Wow! And wow! I love the site. And I can't believe you really used those questions!!! HAHAHAHAHA.

The title rocks. Rocks, rocks, rocks.

Yay! I'm so happy for you guys.

Cheers.

Kimberly Derting said...

LOVE the title! LOVE the site!!! You guys are going to do great things!!!! I'm so excited you both! (see all the exclamation points? Excited!!!)

Alea said...

Oh My Gosh. Your website is so beautiful. So clean and fun and beautiful! I have chills! Congrats Congrats Congrats!!! I'm so happy for you both!

sraasch said...

Your website is freakin' awesome! So beautiful! And so easy to navigate! Who made it for you? Or did you guys make it yourselves? So awesome!

Lisa and Laura said...

Sam - The questions were awesome! How could we not use them? Much more entertaining than anything we could have come up with ourselves.

Kimberly - We love excitement and we especially love exclamation points!!! (See!) Thanks!!!

Alea - Ooh, chills are good! We like chills!

Sara - We're so glad you like it. We purchased a template to create the website. We are technologically challenged (as you know) so we needed something that looked good, but had a user friendly interface that would allow us to update it ourselves on a regular basis.

Tess said...

Very fun stuff, ladies! I'll pop over to the fancy schmancy new website now. And, I like the title :)

PurpleClover said...

YOu guys have to stop doing this! The title doesn't tell me it's YOUR book! I was thinking it was a review!! YOu have to say something like..."Guess what??" and then I'll come running! hahaha.

I LOVE the website. I LOVE the title. And when did you start on the second book? Am I just having a brain fart here?? It sounds like you are far along with it? Have you already finished it?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the title and the name Pemberly Brown! Is that the city?

I LOVE it. All of it. I could gobble it up and poop sparkly diamonds. :)

Lisa and Laura said...

Tess - Can't wait to hear what you think.

P-Clo - If you start pooping sparkly diamonds, please send some our way. And we have the second book all outlined and ready to go, but will wait until we've sold the first to actually write it.

And Pemberly Brown is the name of the private school where the book is set.

We're so excited that you love the title, because we REALLY suck at titles and it took us about 100 tries to come up with one that Major Agent would actually sign off on.

ElanaJ said...

Squee! Totally awesome!

Grey Street Girl said...

The site looks awesome! I can't wait to pick up my copy of the book at Borders! It sounds like it's going to be a great read.

bec-fitzpatrick said...

It looks AWESOME! I love it to pieces. Your designer did a fabulous job.

Hardygirl said...

Fabulous website! Love, love, love it!!

And, I KNEW you would go with Brenda. We are soul sisters.

Lisa and Laura said...

Elana - Thanks!

Grey - Thank you again. I honestly don't think we can thank you enough. I have to forward you an e-mail from Major Agent - she was so impressed with your pics. They really make the site special!

Becca - Thank you! Although, we used a template, not a fancy designer. We're decidedly un-fancy.

SF - Kelly was a little too angsty for my tastes. Brenda was crazy, but in a really fabulous, Joan Collins sort of way. Although I will say that on the new 90210, when Brenda and Kelly were on together, Kelly totally wins. Brenda looks like she's been doing some hard living over the past decade or so and Kelly looks pretty fab for her age.

*fingers crossed for you*
