THE SHORT VERSION

I care about your privacy. I hate SPAM. And I do not sell or share your information for 3rd parties to use to sell you stuff. The “trusted 3rd parties” mentioned below are companies that help me send out my newsletter (Mailchimp), or access page views and site traffic (Google Analytics), or provide links to my products (retailers like Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble), or review sites (like Goodreads).

I value my readers. I want to provide you with fun, snuggly books to share with your little ones. Please email me with any concerns you have about this privacy policy at kerrymcquaide123@gmail.com.
