Is This Thing On?

I’m back!

Domain registration and website hosting have all been successfully (I think) transferred. I’m sure there will be a few broken links and missing images here and there that I need to fix, but for the most part, everything on the site appears to be working. (Please let me know if you see anything that isn’t!)

Here’s a week’s worth of updates crammed into one blog post:

  • Revisionary is out in paperback. Ebook pricing has dropped as well. Woo hoo!
  • Mary Anne Mohanraj and I are about to start reviewing and editing submissions for Invisible 3. Yay, progress!
  • I have seen Dan Dos Santos’ final artwork for Terminal Alliance, and it makes me happy. Will share as soon as the finished cover is ready for public release.
  • A Friday link: 10 Illustrations Every Dog Owner Will Understand.

So, what did I miss while I was away?

Welcome back! (I loved Revisionary, so if you didn't get it already, definitely grab the paperback!)

Who do you have your hosting with? I'm currently with Bluehost, but I'm up for renewal soon and am thinking about changing. It appears to me that their configuration now requires new site hosting to have the domain registration through them, and I refuse to let myself be put in a position where my sites could be held hostage by a single entity. I have my sites registered through one entity and my hosting through another, and I'll always do it that way.

(and you can email me the info if you'd rather not broadcast it)

I went with DreamHost, after several people recommended them.

They handled the transfer of everything from sff.net, and got it all up and running in about a week. I haven't had enough experience with them yet to really recommend, but so far, so good.

Nice that they did the transfer for you. Good customer service is always a plus. I had a problem once upon a time when BH shut me down for a space issue, eventually I was able to get ahold of someone who was able to tell me that a particular database table had become huge with spam comments. I truncated the table and forced user registration with confirmation, and that killed the spammers as they never confirm registration with forged email address headers. Of course, being a database guy, I had the advantage of knowing how to truncate tables through a command line interface.
