Privacy Policy

I respect your privacy and if you are concerned about any information my newsletter or website collects, here are the things you should know:

Newsletter Privacy:

I do not share or sell the email addresses or any other subscriber data from my newsletter subscriber list. Any personal information or personal subscription preferences that subscribers enter upon signup or throughout their free membership is kept completely confidential. In fact, this information is only ever used to deliver preference-driven newsletters intended to enhance the subscriber experience. In other words–avoid filling your inbox with junk you don’t want!

I’m so serious about safeguarding your email address I use two-point authentication for signing into my newsletter provider’s program and only work with reliable providers who can help keep your email address as safe as possible. I also use a double opt-in process to ensure it’s truly you signing up for the newsletter, and not someone with your email address and a vendetta for sending you awesome romance news! (In my opinion, there is nothing worse than SPAM whether you love awesome romance news or not.)

My newsletter subscribers are always safe to unsubscribe at any time and all of my newsletters provide an instant unsubscribe link within them. You can also request to have your data shown to you, “forgotten” (deleted), updated or corrected in a somewhat timely manner (I’m a bit slower if on holiday or in the middle of finishing writing a book), at any time.

This website uses affiliate links. What that means is this: if you use one of my store links on my site (which are often affiliate links if I wasn’t feeling lazy or rushed) to purchase one of my books that store will pay me a few cents for referring you to their store. It is always your choice which store you use and I do not collect data on who buys what. In fact, I can’t. All I get in my monthly reports are which book(s) or other products were purchased using an affiliate link. These stores do use short-term cookies (usually they expire after 48 hours) when you click on an affiliate link. These cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device/tablet to help them track which purchases (if any) they should credit to me for bringing you into their store. Often my social media links are affiliate links.

Website analytics. Google Analytics and cPanel site stats are two existing examples. Other analytic programs or plugins may be added to this site from time to time to help me decide how best to serve my audience. Typically, these programs, based on visitor IP addresses, try to provide generalized, helpful data on who visits a site. (My audience.) Typically, I receive the data in bulk, generalized form. In other words, I can’t specifically “see” any one visitor or anything about them. (Hey, nice shoes, Ginger! Ha! Not that kind of info!) Instead, for example, it might tell me that it speculates that 80% of my site’s traffic is from the United States and some visitors came back twice and these fine people might be predominantly female aged 44-65, and that they really liked coming to my Summer Sisters series page and that they found it by searching for “beach reads romance novels.”

Website Cookies: This site may use a commonly used Facebook ad pixel to help me deliver ads to readers on Facebook.

This website’s popup box asking you to subscribe to my sweet little newsletter uses one cookie. That is so it knows that your computer or device has been here before (within the last month) so it doesn’t keep nagging you with the ‘hey, subscribe to my awesome newsletter!’ popup box. If you have popups blocked, no popup, no cookies. These cookies do not have any eggs, wheat, or other allergens and do not contain or retain any personal information. I wish they had chocolate chips though. Those would be delicious.
