Fictionwise Personal Content Server Down?

I went to upload a new book into my personal content shelf for the iPhone/iTouch at Fictionwise this morning and my previously added books were completely gone. Further, I can’t add any new content. I am sure I have back ups of all the books that I uploaded to the Personal Content Server but if this isn’t a lesson about the importance of backups and not relying on someone else’s server, I don’t know what is.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    *runs to check Fictionwise bookshelf*
    All seems to be in good working order, though I was unable to download books I bought Friday night. I kept receiving a server error page. Same again Saturday morning, though by the afternoon I was able to download my books.
    However, you are right about the back-ups. I have to say, upon reading this post I was relieved I had just backed up my ebooks to my extra hard drive.

    I did the same as Renee, went to Fictionwise the moment I read your blog. Now I haven’t bought a book from them in a few weeks, but all my purhcased titles were there in my account.

    Jane, I hope your personal content shelf has been restored.

    @Leeann Burke: My purchased content is there but none of my personal content (stuff I can upload myself) is there.
