I frequent an author forum and I just saw that CE Murphy accidentally deleted her newsletter and all the backups. She asked for help in posting this message.
Losing the entire newsletter is catastrophic, so if you are a fan of Catie and were on her newsletter, please take a moment to resign up. She is very sorry for the inconvenience.
By the way, her newest release is the REDEEMER, which is a unique take on 1940’s war effort, but with demons.
The war is over…but for Rosie the Redeemer, the homefront battle is just about to begin!
It’s July 1945, and more than just the boys are coming home from war–monsters are coming with them, and Rosie Ransom learns she can redeem a damned soul–but she may lose her own in the process. And yet, without her Redeeming ability, the scare started by a few demons may turn into a full-fledged nightmare…

I’ll have to check this out–I much enjoyed her Urban Shaman series.
It’s a great book with an interesting premise.
It’s a great book with an interesting premise.
Watch “Livin on a Prayer :)” on YouTube
I wasn’t on her list, but I am now. She sings her thanks via YouTube. Link above.
I wasn’t on list but I will sign up now and look into her books. Redeemer sounds like a fun read! Thanks for the recommendation
Same here and will do. Hopefully she gets the bulk of them back on the list very quickly.
That new book sounds interesting. I’ll check it out.
Thank you for posting! Very kind of you 🙂 I like Catie’s writing and enjoyed the Redeemer a lot )
Ditto. Very kind of you! I would never have known about her if you hadn’t shared.
I downloaded Urban Shaman right away and thought Catie’s Joanne would fit right in
at a coffee clatch with your ladies.
I love how women authors have gotten together to write anthologies. It’s a great way to discover new authors with similar styles. And Gordon is on the leading edge of men contributing to anthologies. I asked my husband if he was aware of any male authors
getting together to do anthologies and he just snorted and said men are way too competitive. Kudos to Gordon for being so wise.
I read that book. I liked it. I hope she does more with that series.
That is a gorgeous cover and sounds interesting! I just requested my local library purchase the book. Thank you for mentioning this author. I haven’t read anything of her’s yet and am always on the hunt for new books/series:)
C.E Murphy is awesome. She is a ton of fun. And her books are amazing. Redeemer is awesome. The Urban Shaman series is great
Seamaster is also good. I hope both series continue.

Thanks so much for sharing this.
I liked Urban Shaman and will check out Redeemer.
I will join her newsletter list. She is a good writer with a good sense of humor.
PS still navigating your new site ,just saw Arland. Ohh love that drawing.
Pat Sciarini says
Thank you for doing that for her. I enjoy her books, and yours of course, so have reupped.
Hope all goes well for her, and her heart rate returns to normal soon.
Oopsies happen. I used to work in tech support, so I know all too well how fragile our data can be, and how a bit of redundancy can make you sleep so much better. (I’ve seen everything from a massive chemical company fire that burnt down the office three times from the same event – flared back up, smaller, twice from hotspots after we’d sold them new computers and restored from tape – to my own sister accidentally deleting her masters thesis two weeks before due date. Storage is cheap, therapy is expensive, and restoring a long paper by scanning a previous draft should never be your last resort.)
Patricia Schlorke says
At least she had a previous draft to fall back on. When I wrote my dissertation, I had multiple copies on my laptop as well as on an external hard drive. I also had an USB stick. Statistics files had multiple copies too. Yes, I was (and still am) paranoid about losing everything. ?
Yep, already resubscribed.
Well, Redeemer looks fascinating! You’re not only helping spread the word about her mailing list problem, but you also helped her sell another book <3
Oooo Rosie the Swords-woman! Way cool!
I have a question for one of you, either Ilona or Gordon. What is your limit of downloads for ebooks for your license limits? I have hit it on Magic Triumphs on my Kindle app and I can’t download it on that, but I can on my Nook app.
I have double bought that book and a few more because it is cheaper to buy the ebook from Kindle and add the Audible version than it is to buy the Audible by itself, even though I already have all of your books on Nook.
It isn’t just that book, it is all of Faith Hunters and a few others that I am hitting the limit on.
I work 12 hours a day, 7 day a week and I rotate between 4 duty stations. To keep from having to drag a tablet around with me, as well as my work laptop and other gear, I have a tablet at each duty station. So I have all of my ebooks on each tablet, plus 1 at home, plus a spare that is a old tablet that pretty much DOA anyway.
I just got a new iPad to replace a 4 year old tablet that is having issues, but I am hitting the download limit on quite a few of my books. I am wondering if I need to delete all of the books on one of my tablets, or if it is keeping track of even deleted downloads. For instance I got a new iPad last month, but I had to send it back for a new one after a week. I had deleted the Kindle and Nook apps on it, but did it count?
I don’t know, actually, but it’s the same limit for everyone set by the retailer, in this case, Amazon. I have the same problem. Because we have to reference our books constantly and Kindle is easy to search, I end up having multiple downloads, and the other day it blocked Burn For Me.
Maybe it is for best sellers? Many of mine didn’t hit the download limit, authors like Devon Monk and Dannika Dark, so I thought that it was something that y’all set. But then again it let me download Diamond Fire and Clean Sweep from you.
I imagine that this is going to really upset people in a few years when they have upgraded devices a few times and Amazon is going to force them to repurchase their books. But I guess that I will just make sure that I am buying them from B&N. I have over 1k books through B&N on my Nook app, that would be way too many books to rebuy.
Thank you for the answer.
You should deregister your old device after replacing it with a new one. The files on the old one are removed from the device, but remain on the cloud and can be downloaded onto another device. (The old device can be re-registered on another Amazon account, e.g., if you sell or give it away.) You can do this on Amazon.com – Account – Content and Devices – Devices.
Doesn’t help people with a lot of active devices/apps, though. For that, you could try removing the book you’re reading from one or more devices you aren’t using right now, so you can access it on the one(s) you want to use.
I deleted the other iPad following your directions. LOL, what a list. 5 Android devices, my iPhone and my iPad. I may have to figure out which Android I can remove.
I don’t have the books normally downloaded on my iPhone as it is a little SE, but I did download Magic Triumphs on it to read it when it came out after midnight. 🙂
It worked, thank you. After unauthorizing the other iPad I was able to download the books on the new one. Just deleting the Kindle app or removing the book from another device wasn’t good enough.
Just general advice for readers of the blog, it might sound trite and callous but something isn’t backed up unless it is in at least 2 different places (2 different cloud locations like Dropbox and Google drive don’t count because you often mirror your original files to those locations, and so if you delete the file in the original it can delete it on the cloud as well). So have it in the cloud and then have it on a removable hard drive that you store in a different place so that if your house burns down you have your data still available.
And finally, make sure that you have recovered your data from your back ups at least once. It would suck to have your house burn down and be happy that your external drive you stored at a friend’s house or the bank safety deposit box was useless because the data on it was corrupted.
Redeemer was a very pleasant surprise. I am in love with Rosie, her no-taking-crap-from-men attitude, her very mundane courage to dream of a job and an education rather than being a dutiful housewife. And I enjoyed the variety of women in the story, some good, some bad, and their complicated relationships.
Thanks for the suggestion!

C.E.Murphy is a favorite. There is also a serial, “Rosie meets Cap”, if you support her in Patreon. It’s up to five chapters.

Also, “Easy Pickings”, a Joanne/Jane Yellowrock team up novella.
