Privacy and Other Policies

Mailing list

Any information you provide will never be sold.

FOR M. L. BUCHMAN: At present M. L. Buchman will typically provide 1-2 newsletters per month, including announcements for new books and sales. If you sign up for the optional features (such as NerdGuy Blog Updates and the Reader's Club), you will receive additional notices by e-mail regarding those.
FOR BUCHMAN'S THRILL RIDE MAGAZINE:  At present BTRM anticipates it will provide 1-2 newsletters per quarter, with additional notices during annual fundraising. If you sign up for "Author Release Notices" these will be sent on an ad hoc basis.

Your information may also be used for targeted marketing on social media platforms, but only for works by M. L. Buchman or BTRM respectively. Your list will never be sold, loaned, or traded.

You may unsubscribe at any time (a link is at the bottom of every newsletter, which is immediate) or use the form at the bottom of this page (which may require up to 30 days, though we will try to do it in under 7).

If you wish to exercise your "Right To Be Forgotten" (whether or not you are an EU member protected by the GDPR law), simply check the additional box in the form below. Then, in addition to unsubscribing you from our newsletters, we will also make all reasonable effort to remove all of your data from our mailing service and any other systems.

Affiliate Links

When you click on links to Amazon, iBooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo and possibly others, you may be clicking on an affiliate link. Those links use a tracking cookie to pay the author a few cents on each book purchase. Thank you.


If you are logged onto Facebook when you visit this site, a tracking pixel generated by Facebook may remember you as a visitor to or a related site. As a result you may see ads for M. L. Buchman's books on Facebook from time to time.

Your Credit Card / Payment Method

We will see your shipping addresses, e-mail, and the name you provide. We do not have access to your credit card information. Payments are handled by a worldwide web transaction provider: PayPal, Stripe, or similar. That information is neither shared with us nor processed or stored on our servers. All sales are final.


We do not tolerate internet piracy of any M. L. Buchman books, stories, audiobooks, magazines, or other intellectual property. You may receive a legal notice from our lawyers if you participate in willful infringement. Be advised that we collect evidence of infringement before sending our legal notices.


Once downloaded, all digital product sales are final.

We only replace items if they are defective. If you need to exchange it for the same item, please contact us with the specifics of the problem using the form below.

Unsubscribe / I wish to be forgotten

Please allow 30 days after initial contact for processing (though we will try to do it in under 7). We will send a final confirmation e-mail to the address provided and then delete that e-mail and the related address.
