By the time you read this, Novelspot will have already started celebrating the grand opening of its official domain, novelspot.net. It's been a long, long time in coming, but I'm happy, even thrilled, to say that the site looks terrific. More than that, it's functional (emphasis on fun).

Until now, Novelspot has mostly been involved in the review of romance and erotica books, but that ends with our grand opening, because I'm in charge of the speculative fiction section of the site, which means you're in good hands (or tentacles, when I'm not in my human form).
