The post is prepared each Thursday for publication on Friday. Contact us via Horror Tree’s contact address or connect via Twitter or Facebook.

Support Your Indie Authors and Reviewers

This is a feature 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.

Ben Eads, writer and editor, is in real need of editing work. If you require an editing service, check out his work, rates, and testimonials here.

Varian Ross is a disabled person who’s trying to find work during the pandemic and has started a Patreon for hiswriting:  Prose is posted every Friday, and poetry every Monday. He is legally blind and can’t drive, which really impacts his job search.  He is looking for an at home job in the area of data entry work, or technical writing. Contact him via his patreon or find him on twitter here
