Google Dilemas

Hi Everyone,

This is a sincerely apologetic note to my viewers. Unfortunately, Google in their infinite wisdom currently believe that my blogsite has been hacked by possible phishers. Virus scans, a html check, and some serious deep system clean-up and run through all the webmaster tools have found my system to be in perfect health. In fact, Google's own reports come back negative of any errors or content interference. Alas, for those of you that use Google chrome as I do, and are confronted with this message that my blog is unsafe, I only have one thing to say ...
Horse s@$%t!
But, since it will take several weeks for them to review this issue and pull down this false and destructive message, I am forced to withhold any blog uploads. I would hate for my rants to go to waste.
I thank you all for your patience, and hope to see you all back again soon.
I suppose this means I will actually get a lot more writing and editing done. But, if you do want to track me down, Google have yet to sabotage my Facebook and Twitter accounts, so you can still find me at the links below for a chat!



Kristy :)

The Damned Book Trailer

I've said this before, and I'll say it again ... book trailers are just plain weird. Admittedly I am a convert, mostly because they are just too much fun to make - putting pictures to the words you scribe almost too exciting. I especially love finding a soundtrack that emanates your characters and plot. And this time, I've really championed Breaking Benjamin as the main draw card, getting goose-pimples every single time the score really kicks in.
Alas, I used to think discovering a book was all about perusing the cover, flipping it over and reading the synopsis. But now it's all about the visual and trying not to get distracted by YouTube's various other book trailers uploaded right alongside your own.
So, despite my original confusion over this growing phenomenon, I now embrace the *stops to cough and laugh hysterically* moving pictures with words. Here's hoping I pulled this one off. But, so as not to confuse those of you that haven't read The Hunted yet, I thought I'd pop that one in first so you can watch the progression from 'rockin book trailer' to 'freaking epic book trailer'.
Yes. I will officially be re-labeling them ASAP ...
Anyway, let me know what you think. I love your comments, even the negative ones - especially now that I have a 'moderate' page.

Kristy :)
