Authornation.com – disturbing lack of news

I am a writer, so I write and I publish…or at least I thought I did.  I maintain an account at AuthorNation.com and have been on there for a few years.  Many of my poems and stories are listed there but now I find I can’t get into the site.

I’ve been remiss in my fictional writing as I’ve taken on the task of learning about working online and thus I’ve not been to the site in some time.  The last time I published was a little over a month ago I believe, but when I attempted to look around a few weeks ago the site listed they were down for maintenance.  No biggie, it happens to every site eventually.

I didn’t think much of it, but now I’ve been trying to get into the site for the last few days and see that the Maintenance sign is still up.  It’s not a good sign.  I am trying to research this online and find out what’s going on, but have yet to figure it out.  Maybe one of my FB writing friends knows what’s going on – hope this isn’t long term but we shall see.

I also write at textnovel.com but the formatting there isn’t as user friendly and I don’t have as much listed.  I hope I don’t have to find a new home for my work but if I do then at least I have everything stored (I think).

If you’ve heard anything about AuthorNation being down then please feel free to leave a comment.

  1. I have also been frustrated with AuthorNation.com being down for so long with no explanation. I enjoy the site. I am also an Infinity client, and two emails to that parent company have gotten zero responses. Very disappointing.

    • I keep hoping they will come back to life. I find myself checking back to the page and thinking “maybe this time it will be different”..wait – isn’t that the explanation of insanity? Oh well. I do have some things on textnovel and Triond but they just didn’t have the feel of Authornation. I think I might have to find another site to post to. If I find something I like I’ll be sure to post it here.

      • DEFINITELY the first one. It’s wmsihical.The second and third have those odd crystals hovering beside your head like a … well actually I can’t think of anything that does that.The second one you look like you’re about to throw up. (err, sorry.)The third one isn’t bad, but it doesn’t have the personality that the first one does. It’s too serious!So I suppose it all depends how much personality you want going on.

  2. Hellllllllllp!! Oh my gosh.. What happened? I’ve been traveling and havent been on the site for a while.. now its down? All of my writings are on there and I’m afraid I dont have many of them saved elsewhere… Is there anything I can do?

    • Sorry to hear that Cynthia. I’ve talked to several people that used to be posters there too and they never got a response when they contacted Infinity Publishing. Unfortunately it looks as if ll the info is gone. I had a lot on there too but I also had duplicates of some of it on http://www.textnovel.com as well.
