How do I collect your information?
The only information I have is what you provide to me when you sign up to receive emails, most likely your name and email address.
At no time will any payment information be collected directly from this website. I do not sell products directly from my website. Instead, you will be linked to my bookstore which a separate site run by Bookbaby.com, or you will be linked to Barnes & Noble.com, or to Amazon.com, depending upon the link you choose to click on.
Direct links to my bookstore:
The Colony - Paperback edition: https://store.bookbaby.com/book/The-Colony1
The Colony - Ebook edition: https://store.bookbaby.com/book/The-Colony
What do I do with your information?
I will send email communications to you periodically, to communicate updates about my website, latest releases, new short stories, current promotions, or I may send the occasional promotional email regarding another author's book that I found interesting and would like to share.
I do not share your information with any other authors, promotion sites, or social media, it remains solely with me.
I do not sell your information, I believe that practice is despicable.
I do use Google Analytics to analyze website data, such as the number of visitors per day, hour, week, etc. so that I can better understand which promotions are driving traffic to my site and how effective they are.
