WARNING: Road construction ahead—there will be bumps
It’s not easy wearing so many hats, and I may have to shed a few. In the meantime, some changes are underway to this site, the Nellie Bly Books site and the new site dedicated solely to my book: Sister of Silence.
That’s because, in the last few months, I missed both an invitation for an interview with the Dr. Drew Lifechangers show, and another one from ABC in San Francisco. The error was my own, since I’d been using the email address connected with this site. That email address has been plagued with thousands of spam messages, probably because porn seekers and people selling erectile dysfunction drugs come upon my site while surfing the Net with their favorite online phrases.
Yes, I’ve literally lost very crucial emails—case in point in the last graph—thanks to the spammers who love me. (Okay, well I was also ill and not checking my email like I normally would have—but if not for the spammers, I would have long ago synched that prior email account with my cell phone, and checked it at least 10 times a day like I do my Gmail ones.)
So one week after I found the ABC interview invitation (obviously one week too late), I changed the email address. Because apparently Google does a better job of heading off the spammers than this site’s host server does. And I added a phone number. It’s all on this site’s home page, if you scroll and scroll and scroll to the bottom.
Here’s the second scoop, though: I need my own website. This is it. Sister of Silence, the book, deserves its own website, as well. And as soon as I can figure out where to place it, I will. And then there’s Nellie Bly Books, my indie publishing company, designed to serve a very small niche market for journalists and journalism. It needs its own site.
So far, I hope you’re following. Because it will no doubt get more complicated before it gets less so.
For now, all you need to know is this: If you want to send me any personal correspondance about my book, you can do so here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to buy a paperback or e-book, you can do so here: Nellie Bly Books.
If you want to keep abreast of the latest Sister of Silence news, you can click that link. For now, it will simply bring you back here. I hope to have that changed very soon.
In the meantime, please watch out for the bumps! (And please, I really have no need of Viagra, so if that’s the best you’ve got, skip it. Really.)
Editor’s note: If you’re looking for a book you can’t put down, one that’s averaging between 4.4 and 5 stars on Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and which could just double as a self-help handbook, this book may be it. Or, if you’re a parent and want to better protect your children, or if you’re a victim who has survived child sexual abuse, please go to Amazon and read the Sister of Silence foreword. Written by renowned (and now retired) FBI special agent Kenneth V. Lanning, it’s well worth your time.
