Support Your Indie Authors and Reviewers

This is a space which I hope will help bring extra work to those who’ve been hit economically by Covid. If you’ve lost your day job, had hours cut, are struggling and have services to offer, a new venture, a patreon page to promote etc, let us know and we’ll plug them here.
