Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 7, 2014 in Internet |

Twitter: Not Quite Dead Yet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

I don’t know who first said it – although it’s probably well documented on the Internet somewhere – but the reports of the death of one or another social media platform are exaggerated. At the moment or, better, once again, it is Twitter that has died or is in its final throes. When you’ve nothing […]

This morning it came to an end: my Goodreads Giveaway of free copies of The Temptation of Words with, to my surprise, over five hundred people signing up for one of the two copies on offer.

Books: Finally Out There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 14, 2014 in Publishing |

After a good deal of hard work – which I am definitely getting used to! – our first three titles are now available on Amazon for anyone who wishes to buy through their system instead of through our shop or Etsy. That is, it is available on their US site but, for some reason, there […]

Amazon And April Fool’s Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 1, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I seem to be having a problem with Amazon, not that I deal with them yet, but generally they are being a pain in the ass and, therefore, I have nominated them as April Fools for this year. A short while ago I mentioned that Amazon have listed my brand new publications as being Out […]

The Eternal Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 31, 2014 in Internet |

Does anyone really believe that the Internet never forgets? I am starting to doubt it, not so much because I’m sure that things simply disappear and can never be found again, but because somethings which I have created have gone away.
