This Friday I’m feeling a little concerned for my fellow bloggers who are blogging on the Blogger platform. It seems Blogger has decided to shut down certain blogs they deem spammy or somehow inappropriate. Several bloggers this week reported that their blogs were simply gone!! Deleted. No, “We think you’re naughty, prove to us you’re not or we’ll shut you down.” Just poof, you’re gone, guilty until proven innocent. Parajunkee has a great post about this latest Blogger fiasco. Definitely check it out.

Hot Book Cover Alert

Ok, it’s the end of the week and weekends are for the happy. So…

Reapers Legacy - Joanna Wylde

I spotted this bit of sexy over at TotallyBookedBlog. Wow!! I loved the first book in this series, Reaper’s Property. Even if I hadn’t loved the first book, I’d totally judge a book by it’s cover in this case. I mean come on, look at that cut…as well as other things. hehe. Here’s the blurb:

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart—and her virginity—to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn’t have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach’s step-brother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he’s never forgotten.

She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious—her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach’s a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger to be Noah’s only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands—with the help of the Reapers Motorcycle Club—to give them a better life.

Living with outlaw bikers wasn’t Sophie’s plan for her son, but Ruger isn’t giving her a choice. He’ll be there for Noah, whether she wants him or not. But Sophie does want him, has always wanted him. Now she’ll learn that taking a biker to bed can get a girl dirty in every way… 

Unfortunately Reaper’s Legacy isn’t due for release until February 4, 2014. But, You can preorder it so you get the moment it’s available. :) If you haven’t read Reaper’s Property,  you’ll want to do so ASAP.

    I’m flabbergasted by this last moralistic BS from Google/Blogger–can people at least recover their content to migrate to another platform, or is it just gone forever?

      From what I’ve heard, if they delete your blog for being “spammy” you can appeal. Some blogger have already had their blogs reinstated. However, I’m not sure about the adult content blogs. A notice when out warning bloggers that Google was cracking down but no clear guidelines were given as to what constitutes “adult content” in their eyes.

    I’ve even seen *family-themed* blogs shut down lately…don’t know why Google is being so arbitrary.

    And a heads-up for the freebie seekers: today RG Alexander announced that her menage WICKED RELEASE is free on Amazon for the next five days…
