FTC Compliance Notice
The FTC recently published rules about disclosure for amateur bloggers.
I am an amateur blogger.
I don't get paid to write the blog.
I get paid when I sell books to publishers, and again when those books generate income via sales to readers.
For the purposes of FTC compliance it's just best to assume I'm a bought and paid for pawn of the publishing industry.
It's best to just assume I have a vested financial interest in any and every book and product mentioned on this blog, particularly the ones I don't identify as written by my clients.
Consider yourself duly notified of my lack of objectivity, and of course thank the FTC for watching out for you.
