Just to update you on what’s been happening, if you hadn’t noticed I was missing online, let alone the fact that this website (and all my other projects) went offline on Saturday. This was due to my hosting company being attacked by hackers (so I was told). They lost all their servers in this attack. And I, along with all their customers, have been offline these last four days hoping against hope to be reunited with their websites and data.
Thankfully, I know have a back-up version of my Alex in Murderland website, and, other than a couple of things, seem to have all my data intact. Including everyone’s likes and comments. For that, I am grateful.
Sadly, however, the same cannot be said for my other websites and projects which, so far, are lost. I have asked my hosting company for my XML file backups but, so far, have had no reply. To say it’s been a frustrating few days is an understatement. I have been silently screaming into the void while trying to remind myself no one died, and it’s only a website. But still, it’s heartbreaking.
Upshot is, this website will continue on my current host for a while longer before being transferred to a new hosting company based here, in my own province. One I can at least call locally, rather than a nameless call centre in India!
Because I seem to have lost all my reviews from my other book review blog, Book Blurb, I am renaming this blog and will be including a broader cross section of genre reviews here. I apologise in advance to those of you who aren’t interested in science fiction or fantasy, and hope you’ll bear with me and continue stopping by to read my reviews and other featured posts.
Also, for those of you who followed me over on the Wry Writer website, I am having to start from scratch, which means I have lost all my posts and your comments, and ask if you are willing would you please stop by and follow me once again.
My sincere thanks to you all for your continued support and friendship.
