Hey gang, hope everyone is having a wonderful May and staying cool, which is tough to do here in Phoenix these days.  I’m running from one thing to another and have my grandson in town tonight, so I’m going to keep this short.

But I wanted to mention to all our readers out there that indie authors are all scrambling this week to respond to U.K. legislation being referred to as GDPR, which stands for General Data Protection Regulation.  In a nutshell, the U.K. has implemented regulations which go into effect on 5/25, which require transparency in how we collect/store/manage your personal information.

While I believe this legislation is goodness for all of us, I hope you all will bear with us as we scramble to figure out how to adhere to the requirements and serve our readers appropriately in all of this.  As with any legislation, there is legalese, interpretations, and interpretations of the interpretations.  Then there are all of the companies and support organizations scrambling to respond and figuring out their role in the overall picture.

Then there’s us—the indie authors who are just trying to write and sell good books.  We are having to put our writing on hold to deal with those things that need to be addressed.  We are all doing our best to align with the letter and the spirit of the law.

So, if you get emails telling you that an author has posted a new privacy policy, or in some cases, asking you to opt-in to their newsletter again, we ask that you be patient with us as we align ourselves with these new regulations in order to better serve you in an open and honest manner.  Stay the course with us and re-up on those newsletters, check out our new privacy policies, and ask for clarification if something is unclear.  This is all about you, and we are working hard to protect your information.

Thank you for your support and faithfulness as we do a little housekeeping!  And if you're interested and are not already signed up for my newsletter, I'd love to have you join us at: 

That’s my story, thorough and thankful, and I’m stickin’ to it.  Hold on tight now ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!

Love ya,
