I don't have comments on this site and I don't use social media, so the best way to get in touch is by email. I reply to pretty much all of the emails I receive here within a fortnight. 

Whether you have an enquiry, feedback, a request for a post, question, recommendation or just want to say hi, I'd love to hear from you. 

(Please read the section below first.)

Name *

Please do not:

  • Request to guest post on this site or any of the other sites I write for. I don't accept guest posts. It's not personal.
  • Ask me to link to your article, website or company. 
  • Send me random press releases.
  • Ask me to republish my posts on your new writing platform.
  • Add me to your email list without permission. 
  • Also, I am very, very, very shy and nearly always say no to speaking requests (be that radio, panels, at events, etc.) As much as I'd love to do it, I'm not a good speaker - feel free to ask but be aware that I'm not the best choice.

Please do send me:

  • Questions / topic suggestions / comments / random thoughts / literally whatever is on your mind
  • Corrections or clarifications
  • Book / music / film / whatever recommendations
  • Pictures of your pets (that always makes me day)
  • Basically anything which is not trying to sell me something or asking me to help you sell something via this site.

Some other housekeeping-y stuff:

  • I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon. (This means that I receive a small commission for anything you buy from a link on this site, at no extra cost to you.)
  • I sometimes quote other people's work. This is always in italics and with a clear credit. If you believe I am infringing on any form of copyright, please get in touch.
  • You are welcome to quote my work but please credit and it and do not repost an entire essay without my permission. Seriously. 
  • I sometimes reference people I know in real life. When appropriate, I change identifying details or use composites, in order to respect their privacy.
