Quite often on this site and in social media, I mention or recommend books — or excerpt books by permission — and provide a link to Amazon. These are affiliate links, and I am an Amazon Affiliate. So are others whose writings may appear from time to time at this website. This means we might be paid a commission if you buy what we recommend from Amazon. (This does not increase the price you pay.)
We are required by law to tell you this.
I also hope you agree this is an excellent and non-intrusive method to help cover the costs for hosting this site and providing useful information and reporting. If you’re especially pleased with content you find here, then you can proactively click here to shop at Amazon, and let Amazon pay me a commission on your purchases. Again, this is at no cost to you, and is an easy way to help support the work that goes into this site.
In addition, I’m glad to announce that I have an affiliate partnership with RescueTime, a service that helps writers and others understand and measure their time and activities online — and, most importantly, protect their writing time from distractions. I highly recommend RescueTime’s special functionality FocusTime as the best assist I’ve found yet for guarding your most important work time. Going to RescueTime via my links here as well as from tweets and other social-media messages from me about the service will provide you with free testing and full explanations of the service and, if you decide to use the premium service (a free version is available), then I get a small commission.
In addition, you may see me offer discount registration codes to various publishing conference events, both here on my site and in social media messages. Such codes (“PORTER,” “AFFILIATEPA” and others) are revenue-sharing codes, meaning that for each registration using such a discount code, the conference in question pays me a small amount as a kind of referral reward. I may use these codes here at PorterAnderson.com and also abroad on the web in such social media locations as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and more.
If you have any questions about affiliate links on this site, please don’t hesitiate to contact me.
