Unicorn Bait Redesigned!

Well, I went a little crazy yesterday and decided I HAD to redesign Unicorn Bait's web site. I'm very happy with how it turned out. It took FAR TOO LONG, but that's due to my very meager web design skills. I have to basically relearn everything whenever I set out to do something like this.

The banner image is a detail from Gustave Moreau's The Unicorns.

You may recognize the basic design from the mock book cover I made up months ago. It was a pretty easy matter to adjust it and make it into the banner image. I wanted to do something pretty awesome with the sidebar, but damn, nobody shows any love for the sidebar. I looked everywhere for some packet or something but couldn't find anything. I ended up doing only basic stuff to change the headers and whatnot. Looking into that took most of my time, and it was a pretty fruitless waste, but I'm still happy with the outcome. I also went in and started doing a few edits to various chapters. I need to do more of that. I think I've let it sit long enough and now can look at it with fresh eyes.

I have been working on SS. Will have more on that tomorrow, hopefully with a new chapter post!
