This has been an overly stressful week, for a number of reasons. But I’m happy to say I’m back online!
Last week, due to a misunderstanding with Amazon, my book went live sooner than I had planned. Both the Kindle version (I already have a review! Thank you!!) and the trade paperback are now available.
I was getting more than my share of traffic on my site, for the server-space I was paying for, so–without warning—down I went.
Hello! Don’t we all want and strive for and cherish more traffic? Isn’t it the primary goal of people who manage websites, to increase traffic? I’d just done upgrades to improve my SEO (search engine optimization), in preparation for the book launch. This was one heck of a “reward” for my successful efforts to increase traffic.
But anyway, one nerve-wracking week and several thousand dollars later (Buy my books!), and having meanwhile been beguiled by an extremely enjoyable sf convention (DemiCon 30 report coming soon!), I’m back online. And I lived to tell the tale.
But I could do with fewer thrills and chills next week, please . . .
