There will be periods of downtime today for the service. I’m doing some upgrades to some stuff that’ll cut internet service sporadically. So if you see that the service isn’t moving well today, don’t worry about it. You can still submit requests though, they just might not be processed till later today.

I’m also aware of the error you get when you go to the StoryMaster app web page. It’s annoying, but ultimately purely cosmetic. I’ll fix it as soon as I can. The holiday season is just not the best time to get anything done.

So I just got a ton of message from Yahoo and Gmail saying they blocked me because there was suspicious activity from my account.

What that most often means is a single user just requested a ton of stories, they were processed and sent and one of the mail services decided I was spamming them.

If you’re going to submit a ton of requests, that’s fine. But try to space them out, otherwise you might never get them because your email provider blocks them.

Yes, I’m trying to figure out a different way to handle this, but I don’t have one for now.

Please remember NOT to send EPUB files to your Amazon Kindle email address. Amazon Kindle does not play well with EPUBs. EPUBs are the Apple iBook format.

If you’re going to send files to your Kindle account, select MOBI files. Otherwise Amazon spits out a message that there’s a problem with your file and it couldn’t be converted and you don’t get your story on your Kindle.

I know the queue is long right now. Someone submitted a bunch of requests that screwed up the queue. I’m fixing it now.
