Privacy Policy

This page explains how information you give me is handled on this site and how I comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

What Personal Data I Collect and Why


When visitors leave comments on the site I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Personal Information

Names and email addresses of people who have signed up to my newsletter. The newsletter is ‘double opt in’. You (may) fill in your name (to allow me to personalize the newsletter) and email address. Sign up requires a further confirmation from your inbox ensuring that I do not add someone without their consent. I will only send newlsetters out when I think that I have information such as new book releases or giveaways that may be of interest. You can unsubscribe from my newsletter at any time.

Names, email addresses and postal addresses of people who have emailed me directly will be used only to respond to a specific queries or to respond to people claiming a prize from a giveaway.


If you leave a comment on my site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


I use Google analytics to show me how my website is used (number of visitors, which countries they are from, which pages are visited etc). This information does not identify you personally.
