I don’t remember when the last time I checked this was – my CONTACT ME option in the left menu column. And I don’t know why I went and tried it now. But today, out of whimsy, I posted myself an email while at work, from my site.
It didn’t work.
I clicked it a dozen times. Nothing. Oh, I’d get a form, all with who you were, a numeric anti-bot check, all that stuff. But no message went through.
Then I went online and looked up my version of Joomla and guess what – a lot of people were having this problem. I messed around with it for about an hour, kinda got it to work, but I wasn’t happy with it. Also, that messy form of theirs was too busy. Finally I figured out how to turn the troublesome form off and just have a simple button that used the user’s existing email box to post me. That’s nice and simple and works like a charm.
Which makes me wonder – did any agents try to post me with interest on my available books and not get through? Ah, the things that keep a writer awake at night…
