My Battl;e with Blogger/Google, Whatever

It's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy putting all my books back on Amazon, through the Create Space program. So now I am what I thought I would NEVER be, a Self-Published Author.  However due to the fact that my former publisher, Vanilla Heart Publishing, had embezzled from about 15 of her authors, including me, after taking all her books off the Internet, I was no longer going to trust anybody else with my babies.
Yes, I said babies. My seven books are my creation, and like a new mother, I want to guard them from all harm. So I bit the bullet and put them all back up on Amazon and Kindle (I don't believe my publisher had put my books on Kindle, so that's a bonus).
Before I took advantage of this self-publishing program, I was kind of disparaging of anyone who self-pubbed. Mostly because I saw a whole lot of porn -- er, excuse me, -- erotica flooding the market. Yet I knew there were some great self-pubbed books out there, too, and that kind of took the sting off the label.
So that brings you up to the minute on my writing life. Well, maybe not all up to the minute. I'm struggling to revamp my web site and it's a tough job for this old lady, and her lack of computer-ese. But it has to be done, in order to take out all references to Vanilla Heart Publishing, and I re-named some of my novels and made new covers for all of them.
Somehow, when my back was turned, Blogger morphed into Google, and that really ticks me off. It's not as easy as it was before; I've tried many times to decipher the cheerful Google help code, to no avail.
I quite accidentally accessed my blogs, this one and TheLadyWithLupus blog, so I'm feeling rather smart at the moment. Until I try to post again....Then, all bets are off.
