We are believers in being transparent.

So one of the things we want to talk about are affiliate links and how we use them.

Our primary goal is to provide books that readers will love, and to sell those books as widely as possible.

We also want to introduce readers to books, courses and other resources that we think will genuinely help, entertain, or be otherwise useful.

Affiliate links allow us to earn a (generally very small) commission from making a referral, without it costing you any more than if you went to the retailer direct. We also use affiliate links to track the effectiveness of our marketing activities and in directing readers to their local store through redirection based on the location of the user.

We might ear such commissions from links redirected using Geni.us links, and with retailers such as Amazon, Kobo, Nook, Google Play, Apple iTunes, and a host of other ebook and physical booksellers.

As an Amazon Associate we earn from other purchases a user might make when being directed to their store, based on Amazon’s latest terms and conditions.

We only promote products that we truly believe you will benefit from. In addition, we only recommend products or services that we’ve personally used and benefited from as a user ourselves, and our reviews are not influenced by whether there is an affiliate link, or not. If we haven’t tried it and had a positive experience then we’re not going to promote it to you. This way we can guarantee that everything we recommend is going to be of good quality.

We are not given free products, services or tools in exchange for reviews or promotion on our sites or to our subscribers. The only compensation we receive comes by way of an affiliate commission if you purchase it yourself. If we do receive any other type o compensation, this page will be changed to reflect it.

Considering the amount of content we publish online, it would be challenging to go back and highlight every single affiliate link we’ve created. So, it’s probably safer to assume that we declare all links as being affiliate links, whether or not they actually are.
