Don't panic, I am still publishing book one, what my bad news is, and may not be bad news to some, but to me it really is.
I sat at my pc last night to do some work, plugged in my memory stick, as it had been removed, to find it empty, thinking oh no, remove and put back in, it will all be there, but guess what, nope, nothing.
Not only was it empty, but now its showing that it is corrupted. I have done everything I can to restore the files, but to no avail.
I will now have to re-write my novel that I did for Nano, and as it was book 3, of my series.
