Yesterday I deleted my Goodreads account. I had an author’s profile. It proved not as useful as was promised. I first joined several years ago. Early as a regular member. Then I graduate to an author’s account after I published my first novel. Now that has all been deleted. Cache cleared. No longer am I […]

Scene from the HBO Show Silicon Valley

 Nowadays I hesitate when I open any website or app which asks me to sign-up with my email. It seems the only way to sign-up for anything these days is via Facebook, Twitter, Google, or your email.
