I have a dilemma. Authors are always emailing and asking if I'd like to review their books. Today I got an email but instead of it being sent from the author, it was sent by.... Hotmail Live Team! Hehe have they broken out into the book world? Picked up a side job? It makes me wonder - are jerks THAT desperate to hack my laptop that they'll masquerade as authors now? So I don't know what to do. The author is legit - he has a book but I can't find an email to contact him.
I talked with my BFF and she shared that hackers are getting trickier... they're starting to disguise their attempts as something you'd be interested in. I know it's a scam if I'm being sold penis enlargement pills or other crap like that. But if it's book related? I'm hesitant. So I just wanted to share and send out a warning - this may be for real... or it may not. Be careful and if you get hacked? Let me know and we'll hunt together... hackers tick me off!
Ok, now here's the giggle part - I opened the email on my phone (I thought it was safer - rather my phone crash than my email/laptop) and read the message. Even the way it was set up made me question whether it was for real... it wasn't written like most queries but it's the beginning that had me giggling.. what do you think?
"Dear Bookish Snob,
I thought the following might arouse your curiosity. This is hetero (I couldn't quite work out whether your site is gay)"
PLEASE tell me someone else choked reading that!! I seriously had to check my blog and see whether it had been hacked and replaced by something different LOL Couldn't quite work out. Didn't the semi naked men give it away? The picture of me... a girl? Posts about my husband? The reviews I've written where I GUSH and LUST after the hero? Honestly, please tell me if somehow I've been remiss in my duties as a lover of romance and MEN, to show my appreciation! *giggles*
So, to reinforce my stance as a GIRLY lover of all things men..... I give you ..... ME and sexy men!!
ME!!! I have GIRLY bits!!
My husband!! He likes my GIRLY bits *winks*
And here's me gushing...
Good gosh... muscles and tatts! And look at the V *drools*
Move over honey, I need to cool off too!!
David Gandy... you are a GOD!!
Sorry I LOVE this pic!! LOL
Seriously think I'm going to SWOON!
Do I need to continue? Anyone else need to be reassured where my heart and loins lie? ROFL - it's been such a rough couple of weeks... heck make that months and I was in desperate need of a good giggle. Hoax or a misunderstanding, this was just what I needed.
Glad we had this chat LOL
