For the last two and a half years, I have been writing interesting bits about A Buss from Lafayette on the website, Bublish.com. It has been great fun, thinking and writing about the source of my ideas as I wrote the story, or giving more background information about subjects that come up in the book. I believe I wrote several hundred of these "Book Bubbles". Unfortunately, I did not back up what I wrote, believing it as safely stowed on Bublish.com.
In April, I had reached 125,125 hits. Just before everything disappeared (!), I saw that my total had hit just under 130,000 hits.
Here's what the total is now:
The people at Bublish say this has never happened before. I was editing the book description, to let people know that the audiobook of A Buss from Lafayette is now available. As I was typing, the screen, the book itself, all its bubbles and something like 70,000 hits disappeared.
I am not happy. And I am feeling really stupid for not making copies of all the bubbles.
That's the way the Bubbles burst!
