Important GDPR and blog subscription information

May 18, 2018 | 0 comments |

Dear readers,

As some of you know, the European Union (EU) is introducing the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25 May 2018.

I’m based in North America, but EU residents subscribe to my blog mailings. As such, and to ensure compliance with this new regulation, I’m sending a message to all subscribers to update you on some important information about your subscription, as well as how data collected from you is used.

Although I hope you enjoy receiving my blog (sent out every two weeks), this message is a reminder that since you opted-in to receive my blog via email, you can also opt out at any time via the “unsubscribe now” link at the very bottom of this, or future emails.

Please also be aware that there is a new privacy policy on my website outlining details of the collection, use and disclosure of personal information you supplied as part of subscribing to my blog. For further information, please read this policy here:

If you also subscribe to my author newsletter (sent out quarterly and/or when I have new book news), I sent a similar message to those subscribers on Thursday, 17 May 2018. 

Thank you for reading my blog, and for your continued interest in my books and writing life. If you have questions related to this message or how I collect and handle your personal data, please contact me at

Best wishes,
