Privacy Policy

How I Collect and Use Information
I collect the following types of information about you:

Information you provide to me directly:
I ask for certain information such as your name and e-mail address when you sign up for my newsletter or general email communications. I may also retain any messages you send via email or web form. I use this information to communicate with you after sign up.

Information I may receive from third parties:
I may receive information about you from third parties that you opted in to share your information with on my behalf, such as or or in the instance of a blog tour.  

I may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for this blog and my newsletters. These tools collect anonymous information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit. I collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

Sharing of Your Information
I will not rent or sell your information into third parties.

How I Store and Protect Your Information
Storage and Processing:
Your information collected through newsletter sign up is stored securely with a reputable email service for the sole purpose of newsletter distribution or with my email provider.  
In the event that any information under my control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, I will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Your Choices about Your Information
You may opt-out or unsubscribe from communications with me at any time.  If communication is required in response to an inquiry, contest entry or other reader initiated communication, I will respond for that sole purpose only.

Following un-subscription I may retain your private profile information for a commercially reasonable time for audit purposes to ensure your information is kept removed from my mailing list.

Children’s Privacy
I take the protection of children seriously and employ reasonable measures to prevent individuals under the age of 18 years old from entering my website or joining my mailing list. I do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 18 or knowingly allow such persons to register for mailings. My content is not directed at children under the age of 18. In the event that I learn that I have collected personal information from a child under age 18, I will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that I might have any information from or about a child under 18, please contact me at

Links to Other Websites and Services
I are not responsible for the practices employed by websites or services linked to or from the website or mailings, including the information or content contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from my website to another website, my Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link or advertisement on our website, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies. In addition, you agree that I am not responsible and I do not have control over any third-parties that you authorize to access your information.
