Information That We Collect

Newsletter and Info about Services
When you enter your name and email address in our subscriber box, you are agreeing to receive emails from us, including but not limited to our newsletter and/or blog updates and information about our services. We do not sell or share our mailing list with anyone.

When you subscribe, we ask for your email address, your first and last name and (sometimes) your city, state and country. New subscribers providing names that are obviously a hoax or a joke will be deleted.

From time to time we may make announcements to our mailing list or send you information on special offers that are not published within the framework of the regular publications you receive. If you do not wish to receive these notices, you can use the Unsubscribe link to remove yourself from all Write More Words mailings.

We use MailerLite to manage our email marketing subscriber list and to send emails to our subscribers. MailerLite is a third-party provider, which may process your data using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our newsletter.

As required by GDPR, Milli Thornton has a Data Processing Agreement on file with MailerLite. MailerLite’s privacy policy is available at https://www.mailerlite.com/privacy-policy.

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided at the end of each newsletter.

Write More Words Coaching Service

Clients of Milli Thornton’s Write More Words Coaching Service are generally expected to

(a) complete the steps in the sales funnel on this website before being accepted for a coaching program.

This includes:

  • watching the video 10-minute “Write more words, finish your book” or the 2-minute video “Why you’ll never write your book”
  • filling out and submitting a questionnaire (either Request a Free Consultation or About You as a Writer, or both) that supplies information about the applicant and his/her writing project(s) and writing dilemma(s)
  • submitting a writing sample

(b) do an introductory week of coaching to determine whether coach and client are a good fit.

Contact details requested from applicants and clients of Write More Words Coaching Service will be used only for contact between Milli Thornton and the applicant or client. Should a reason for any third party contact arise (such as introducing a colleague who can help the client with a particular project or issue), permission will be sought first before contact details are passed on to the third party.

Cookies and Website Information
Like most other commercial websites, we use standard Web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used.

In the interests of free expression, clients of Write More Words Coaching and students of its companions services (Fear of Writing Online Course and other online courses offered by Milli Thornton) may submit material (via email or by Moodle forum) that contains some sexual content or some amount of violence relevant to the story. Online course students posting such stories must use the tag “Adult Content” on the subject of their story. Story postings are seen by forum members only and all posts are moderated by the course owner. However, in most cases, the writing of individual clients of Write More Words Coaching is only shared privately by email with Milli Thornton.
