I am unable to recommend manuscripts to my agent unless I've read them first.

I donate regularly to both libraries and charities of my choice. If you send me an email asking for a donation, I will only reply if I am able to donate.
I do (eventually) read every email I receive, but deadlines and my personal life mean I may not reply right away.

If you email me to talk about my books or to request an interview/appearance, you will receive a reply.
Emails or FB messages trying to sell me editorial services, blog tour services, or any other services will not receive a reply.
