Here’s the weird thing… I LOVE to talk about my characters, my stories, my world, my everything. If you’ve got feedback, a comment, a question? If you want to run me as part of your blog, want to connect with me for whatever reason, or even to get a signed copy?

Please! Let me know. I’ll answer your messages as soon as I can, I promise.

A personalized order (signed, dedicated) placed with the author SPECIFICALLY through this website or Facebook Shops or in-person conventions cannot be refunded. Orders through alternate sales channels (such as, Ebay, or other third-party vendors) are covered under those retailer’s return policies.

Slightly less professional:
I’m mandated to include this by agreement with a particular e-commerce hosting page that doesn’t actually have anything to do with this website or is hosted on this server. The internet is a vast and headache inducing-void sometimes.

A full comment on the return policy is here:
