Welcome to the author Brian Jackson websites page. Here I provide a little highlevel information on the three websites that I maintain. You’d think I’d begin by talking about this site, my brand spanking new WordPress site. But no, let’s discuss them chronologically instead.
Melanie Jackson Home Page The first serious site that I ever worked on was not my own site but the site of my lovely wife, author Melanie Jackson. Up until recently I hand coded all my websites in raw HTML using the GNU Emacs text editor on my Windows 7 PC. The website has gone through several incarnations over the years, the current iteration affectionately referred to as version 3 (V3). I have plans to migrate the site to WordPress using the Gensis theme just as I have this site, but in the meantime you might want to take a look at my wife’s website. It’s implemented in HTML using the Bootstrap 3 extension to lay each page out in a responsive grid (the site is still readable on a cell phone). I use Server Side Include (SSI) to modularly pull together the headers, menus, and book description elements of each page. Another fun page to visit is the History of Melanie’s Website. Here you’ll see the various versions of my wife’s site from my first attempt. Enjoy.
Chloe Boston Home Page This is a site that I setup to experiment with WordPress. Its actually my second WordPress site, but I’m trying to get rid of or repurpose the first site. Guess what? I decided that I like using WordPress to maintain and extend my site. As a result of the Chloe Boston site I updated this site to its current state. By the way, Chloe Boston is a meter maid and amateur detective who lives in Hope Falls, Washington. Chloe Boston first appears in Moving Violation (Chloe Boston Mystery Series Book 1). Anyway, give the site a gander. I’m not sure about the future of the site as I’m always juggling several things at the same time. But then aren’t we all?
Finally, there’s my home page here. Rather than try to explain it, I’d thought I’d just hand you the keys and let you take it for a spin. Let me know how you fare by dropping me a line on either my Home or Contact page.
