MY NEW EMAIL - a little moan about something :(

Hey guys!!

Lots of things to tell you. First, this whole thing is giving me a friggin' headache. NOT GOOD. I don't really know how to start, but oh well.

My blog email addy (thebookgoddess(at)yahoo(dot)com) was hacked yesterday. Or I *think* it was. It all started when my blog bestie Paulina (Kissed/Bitten by Books) texted me saying 'Did you see the email that you sent out to everyone?' I immediately freaked. I DID NOT SENT ANYTHING. So I bombarded her with questions like WTF What?? How?? Turns out it was just SPAM and it was basically just asking for money. I would have laughed if the whole thing wasn't ridiculous. I may be poor, but I don't go emailing people asking for money LOL. And before you ask, I have changed the password.

Anyway, even though most of you people figured it out, I was still left feeling miserable and embarrassed during the day. (Btw this wasn't the first time it has happened, it happened before  2 months ago, and then it stopped). THIS IS NOT THE WORST THING. 

THE WORST THING is that all of my emails in the SENT box (the ones that I've sent to people/bloggers etc.) has all *magically* disappeared. *Cue mini heart attack here*. I went on it to read the email that I supposedly sent to people. There's like NOTHING. Not one email. Oh Jesus. SO NOW I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING. 

Well. Okay that is still not the worst thing. THE WORST AND MOST HORRIBLE THING IS THAT I'M NOT RECEIVING ANY EMAILS AT ALL. Which if you believe me or not, is a surprise. Paulina sent me an email (it wasn't there), I sent MYSELF an email (from my other account), and it didn't show up there too, I got my DAD to freaking send me an email Wanna guess the outcome? So the last email in my inbox is from 2 DAYS AGO. I don't know about you, but I can't live without my email. 

Not only this annoys me, I'm sure it annoys the heck out of people who have been emailing me. Or will email me in the future. All my (authors, publishers, bloggers etc.) contracts are on that email, and where I get my weekly updates from every book site. So now I have to spend ages trying to change my details to this new email. What's really bad is that if someone emails me on that address, they may think I'm ignoring them. I'M NOT. I just can't see your email. *Facepalm* I'm trying to get my dad to fix it or complain to Yahoo or something, but in the meantime I thought why not create a new email. 

Of course, I don't know if my old one will ever go back to normal (I'm praying it will), but in the meantime here's my new email: thebookgoddess@ymail.com 
It's similar to the old one. Anyway, if you need to email me about anything book related, then please use the new one. I wouldn't be able to see it if you still use the old.  

Thinking about all the things that I've been missing (it has only been a day but still!) is just driving me crazy. All the blog tours, publisher newsletters, the Daemon Invasion yahoo group (now I have to apply to be a member again with the new email), and later I have to DM Jennifer to let her know about my new email addy to put on the Daemon Invasion Street Team list (I'm the leader of team Luxing After Daemon). We might miss out on news and announcements and I WOULD HATE THAT. SO MUCH. I don't want my team to be affected by this stupid thing. 

I'm pretty sure I missed something to say. But. If my old one starts working again, I'll update this post. :) 
Alrighty then. I'm off to watch Snow White and The Huntsman in the cinema to cheer me up from this. So not what a 16 year old girl needs right now. :P


  1. Oh, poor you Jana! I got the e-mail asking for money and I was really worried that what they said had happened in the e-mail was true! I'm so glad it's not and that you're ok.

    Anyway, whoever hacked you is so sad and pathetic! I hope things work out, and I'm sorry for all the stress you must be going through!

    1. Oh Jessica, this is what I was worrying about! That some people might think that it was true or something :(

      Yeah, they are REALLY sad and pathetic, I mean seriously it's not like I'm a famous person or anything - I'm only a blogger and a reader LOL!

      Thanks so much for the lovely message Jessica! xxx

  2. Ahh, that's so annoying! Just checked my emails and came onto your blog to see if you had posted anything about it, or if it was a hack.
    Hope everything gets sorted soon!xx
