Thank you so much for your patience recently for our quietness:)
Most of you will be aware that the Writers Exchange website got hacked in July. Since then we have had to change hosting to a dedicated server and totally start from scratch with a new website! (http://126.96.36.199) which looks totally different from the old site, and the colour scheme of this blog.
Things did not go smoothly:)
As of today I have nearly added 200 of our 470+ books into the new site, and only today did the techs get the admin section of the blog working, so I could do blog posts!
All of August was just fixing stuff and putting our old books back in, but September so far, has included two new book releases that I couldn’t do a release notification for!
If you will bear with me I will send out the notifications for those books after I do this post, so you will get three posts straight after each other. Also, I am hoping to release the third book for this month this afternoon, so you will get another notice then as well!
The hacking made us think about a few things, so our business practice has changed slightly as well:
- We are now selling direct from Amazon only – so all the book pages take you to Amazon to actually buy the book. We did this because the hackers just wouldn’t stop, but with only a catalogue online there isn’t much they can do.
- Our new books at Amazon will now have DRM security. This was because we were very disappointed to find nearly all of our books pirated on file sharing sites. A few thieves ruin it for everyone 🙁
- So our new site has all our books, easy for you to find, plus new things. We have a “universe” page to give you heaps of info on the various universes our authors have made, and there will be author interviews and other things that Amazon cannot provide:)
So again, thank you all for your patience as we make these changes. I hope you check out the new site and let me know what you think.
