Yes, the main blog is down and out for the foreseeable future. My domain registration was coming up for renewal, and I kept getting reminders from Infinity Cloud, who you may recall went out of business. I did try to renew through the links in their emails, but none of the links worked, and none of their email addresses were still active. I incorrectly assumed that my new host, DreamHost, would send a similar email, but Infinity Cloud didn’t transfer registrar rights over to them. They didn’t even know my domain was about to expire, so this isn’t something they could have prevented.
So the site went down last Friday, and DreamHost told me that it looked like my registrar was Public Domain Registry, and I had to renew through them. Only trouble was, my domain didn’t show up in their database. I emailed them to ask what to do, and they gave me a different address to contact one of the people formerly in charge of Infinity Cloud. That address worked, and the person I contacted made an attempt to renew my domain, only to discover that they couldn’t do it either. So they’re contacting another person to try and get this sorted out.
Long story short, my domain is lost in a technical limbo for now. I have no idea how long it’s going to take to get this fixed, so I can’t give any time frame for when the main blog will be back up and running. At least I have this mirror blog to let y’all know what’s going on. As this could take a while, I’ll get back to posting reviews and stuff soon, and whenever the main blog is back up, I’ll just copy pasta the latest articles over with an edited time stamp.
In other news, I’m just about ready to start putting out some new releases, and should have a new book out this month, a romantic erotica title called Third Wheel Romance Blues. Next month, I will try to release the first Alice the Wolf book, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. I know I said I’d put out all five books at once, but I don’t think that’s such a good idea now. I’ll send out the first and get to work on the others for release a few months at a time to give folks a chance to read them and stay caught up. Lastly, in May, I’ll be releasing the third Tobe White book, Adventures in Trolling. I expect that after May, I’ll have a few quiet months without new releases, but I’ll use the time to promote these new titles and see if that helps with sales. (Sales were very bad last month, with only one sale on Amazon, and two on Kobo. This is probably due to the length of time I’ve gone without releasing any new work, so I hope to make summer and spring less sucky for sales.)
And that’s it for now. I should have new book and game reviews up soonish, and I thank you for your patience during my technical difficulties.
