Film director finds me at HubPages

    Film director Raymond Deane who has a new movie coming out soon - Travail: Dawn of a New Day - found me via HubPages and sent me a message saying he would like me to write about his work and would give me a link back for doing so. He is very pleased with what I wrote and has given me some great publicity on his press page with a link to here and a quote from my hub. He has also invited me to the official premiƩre in New York. I wish I could go!

    I thought I would share this news to show what great surprises can come your way here and what sort of professionals read our hubs!

    thats really cool.  I'm making a video game.  That would be cool if I ever heard from someone that would want to partner with me.  My game is Passions Unleashed and it is a game for adults.  I've copyrighted it.

    Well, my success with this has just taken a major blow because HubPages has just unpublished my hub that this director was so pleased with and had back-linked from his press page! This is possibly because I used quotes from his official site about the movie or because he quoted me. Either way I am being penalised for duplicate content! This is crazy!
