Website name (Fearful Symmetry)

Edit:
Just some suggestions about the fearful symmetry website for Dan, if you find this irrelevant feel free to delete.
By the way, I really like your books.

Where did the fearful symmetry name come from?
You might want to change the website name to something with your name in the URL itself such as: danwells-author.com, or dan-wells.com. If a search keyword is included in the name of the website, that website is much more likely to come up higher in the results.

2) You could include a Meta Description in the code of your page, just something very simple like:
<meta name="description" content="The blog of Dan Wells, American Horror authro.  Daily blog updates, store, biography,  forum, contact" />
Its just one line of code to insert in your webpage, below the <title>tag.

When a Meta description contains the keyword that the user is searching for, the search engines like google tend to display this text in the search results rather than some random text from your site, allowing you much more control over how you are presented to online searchers.

Here's what it looks like now when I search for Dan Wells and find your site:
Dan Wells
I'm pleased to report that the “Let Dan Wells kill you” auction was the big ticket item of the whole event, going for a final bid of $500 to a handsome ...
www.fearfulsymmetry.net/

If you changed the meta description tag to the above, someone searching for you would probably see:
Dan Wells
The blog of Dan Wells, American Horror authro.  Daily blog updates, store, biography,  forum, contact.
www.fearfulsymmetry.net/

Finally, some of your foreign readers might not know what "awesome swag" means, you might want to change it to "Store of awesome swag"

Awesome Stuff might better describe the store. Swag=stuff we all get, and is by definition free stuff.

"Fearful symmetry" is a quote from a William Blake poem, "The Tyger," since you asked... :)

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forest of the stars,
How I love thy fearful, flying teatray.
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.
