Support my writing

Liked one of my articles, tutorials or reviews and would like to support my writing?

As an independent writer and blogger, I rely 100% on reader support. While I am experimenting with adverts (mostly to cover hosting costs), I don’t accept paid commissions for my reviews – everything on my site is here because it’s what I’m passionate about or I had a problem to solve and wanted to share the solution.

Buy a book!

The best way to support me is to buy one of my books – for yourself, or as a present for friends and family.

NOTE – At time of writing (March 2018), I have three forthcoming novels currently in the latter stages of the editorial and production phase and will be available for pre-order in coming months.

To receive updates about the release dates of my books, sign up to my monthly newsletter.

I’m exploring the possibilities of accepting donations using a secure, third-party payment provider. If you want to help out in this way then watch this space!

<!–Hosting this site, getting my books professionally edited and designed all cost money – and as an independent author, I wear all the costs myself and do so long before I can sell a single copy.

Donations allow me to keep my site free of advertising and provide my popular reviews and articles free for all. They also help procure the publishing services I use to ensure my books are the highest possible quality.

You can donate in two ways: once off or recurring.

Once off donations are priced around the services I need to keep writing and blogging.

$5 USD covers one month’s hosting or proof-reading a single 1,000 word article.

$5 USD covers copy editing and proof-reading for one of my longer reviews, which typically weigh in between 2,500 to 4,000 words.–>

If my books aren’t your cup of tea and your leery about donating, you can still support my site at zero cost to yourself if you use one of my affiliate links.

Amazon USA and UK

For customers of Amazon in the USA or UK, simply click either to the links below and if you make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission – at no cost to you.

I use and review a lot of apps. Many of my reviews include affiliate reviews for their respective App stores or directly from the vendor. If my review’s helped you may your purchase choice, please consider using the links on the review page so I get a small commission.

You can also find a list of App which I regularly use both as a writer and developer. Many of the links there are affiliate links too.
