Lots of authors have contacted us to see what’s going on at BarnesandNoble.com.
In October, Barnes and Noble was the victim of a massive cyber attack, which affected not only their website, but their individual stores as well. While their main website is back up, they are still experiencing problems, including the inability to put up new ebooks submitted to their site.

Let me share my knowledge to improve your writing. You can create blind characters that readers will fall in love with.
