Privacy, Cookies, & Terms of Use

The following is the privacy policy, cookies policy, and terms of use for this site:

Updated on 3/25/2024.

First, I’m not a lawyer, so I’m going to be as plainspoken in this as I possibly can.

You need to be an adult to use my site, especially if you’re going to leave comments or otherwise submit any of your private data, such as your email address, to me. If you’re not old enough, come back when you are.

My site uses cookies when you try to leave a comment or send an email through the contact form on the contact me page. If you don’t want that, you need to block them with your browser settings. If you do block them, though, you’re probably not going to be able to use the site that well, and you won’t be able to use the contact form. Cookies are usually necessary for commenting, keeping you logged in, things like that.

If you leave a comment, it requires a name (maybe you’re using a fake one, I don’t know :D), an email address, and your comments. If you use the contact form, it also requires a name, an email address, and your message.

My site logs your IP address and your browser user agent string when you submit a comment or send an email through the contact form.

If you ever want your comments and this associated data removed from my site just email me using the contact me address here on the site. I’ll be happy to permanently delete any and all comments you’ve made.

If you email me through my email address or contact form (as listed on the contact me page), I keep a copy, because who doesn’t keep email these days? But if you want it gone forever, I’ll delete it for you and never think of it again. :D

I always try to be accommodating.

However, if you leave the kind of comment or send the kind of email that is criminal in nature, I will probably just turn that over to the proper authorities instead. No smiley this time, because that kind of stuff is serious business and I’d rather not make light of it.

My site has a form on it for a New Release Notification List. If you submit your email address to me with that form, you’ll be signed up to that email list. I use Mailchimp for serving that list and it’s set to double opt-in. Meaning you must verify your email address to start receiving those emails. If you don’t verify your address, you won’t be signed up to the list. This stops malicious subscriptions. Hopefully, you don’t have anyone doing that to you. :o If you ever want to unsubscribe, there is a link in the email that makes it easy to do. If you want all data about you removed from my records of that email list, just email me and I’ll permanently delete you and all your data. If you don’t want to be there, I don’t want you to be there either. :D

I use links on this site, and if you click any of them that lead to someone else’s site, their privacy policies and cookie policies and terms of use apply to their sites. Some of those links might be affiliate links (Google Play, for instance). I’m not objective when I’m promoting my own books. Don’t expect me to be. I love them all and I will promote the retailer that makes me the most money because it means I can write more books to share with you! :D

That said, I always prefer that you buy my books wherever it is most convenient for you. I’m just happy that you are here, and hopefully, reading and enjoying my books. :D

If you have any questions about these policies, just email me! You can find the address on my contact me page.
