EDEN BAYLEE BOOKS is no more

My website http://www.edenbayleebooks.com has closed its virtual doors. The domain name is one I purchased for a site that showcased my books. It was primarily a static website.

My main activity has always been on this WordPress blog, which I opened in November 2010.

And though Wordpress.Com and I have had a good relationship all these years, it’s time to move on.

I won’t go into the details of all the changes I’ve been making over the past weeks, but the impetus for them has to do with updating the look of my site and giving me more control over the content. After much research into the two platforms, I decided to move from the free WordPress.com to the self-hosted WordPress.org.

Though I could have given my log-in and password to WordPress Support to make the transfer for me, I elected to tackle the job myself after reading all the tutorials. It sounded straightforward.

The backend of this blog may look like a swamp of codes and links and tags, but I was used to it after seven years of  blogging.

How hard could it be?

So … let me tell you—five days of cursing and sleepless nights later, I moved over all the information!

I won’t say it was difficult, but easy—it was not! Nor was it intuitive. It’s never as simple as they make it out to be in the tutorials. This is what happens when you are a “do-it-yourself” type of person. The good thing is I learned a lot about the finicky process, so if you ever decide to embark on the same type of data migration, I’m more than happy to share my tips if you run into similar issues.

If you visit this blog regularly, please continue to do so. I will try to make the transition as seamless as possible. Most of the work involves archiving and amalgamating information on the backend. It should not affect how you access my blog or what you see on the frontend, however … where technology is concerned, things may go wonky. (Don’t you love my sophisticated tech speak?). 😉

If you notice something odd/missing/broken in the next couple of weeks, it’s probably due to something I’ve done. It should be fixed before my new site goes live.

Moving forward, please continue to find me at: edenbaylee.com which I have mapped to this blog while I’m building the new site.

When the new website is up, this blog will revert to its original name of http://www.edenbaylee.wordpress.com and eventually close.

As always, thank you for stopping by. It gives me great pleasure to know you’re reading my words. Hopefully, the new site will look even more inviting. I aim to have it up by early February.

sas_2kindleA vacation can be a killer

Dr. Kate Hampton, a respected psychiatrist, gathers with a group of strangers at her favorite travel spot, Sunset Villa in Jamaica. Included in the mix are friends of the owners, a businessman with dubious credentials, and a couple who won the trip from a TV game show.

It is January 2013, following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The luxury resort is struggling, not from the storm, but due to a scathing review from caustic travel writer, Matthew Kane. The owners have invited him back with hopes he will pen a more favorable review to restore their reputation.

Even though she is haunted by her own demons, Kate feels compelled to help. She sets out to discover the motivation behind Kane’s vitriol. Used to getting what he wants, has the reviewer met his match in Kate? Or has she met hers?

Stranger at Sunset is a slow-burning mystery/thriller as seen through the eyes of different narrators, each with their own murky sense of justice. As Kate’s own psychological past begins to unravel, a mysterious stranger at Sunset may be the only one who can save her.
