I write a lot, but only blog a bit. I mainly write novel length sci-fi but also dabble in short stories and, very occasionally, poetry. I have one cat. Just one. Any more would be chaos.

For the record, S.C. Mae is a pseudonym. There’s no particular reason for the pseudonym, except that they’re fun and kind of secret agent-y. ‘The name’s Mae, S.C. Mae, license to write. Except, well, one doesn’t actually need a license to write, which is really quite great, but anyway, the name’s Mae, S.C. Mae.’

How to Support S.C. Mae

So you’re nearly at the bottom of the page. Nice!

Maybe you’ve got a scrolling fetish (hey, that’s okay, nobody’s judging here) or maybe you’re thinking to yourself, ‘I quite like what this bloke is doing. How can I support S.C. Mae in his creative writing endeavors?’

That, my friend, is a wonderful question, and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to hear you ask.

The best way to support me is by buying my books.

Another way to support me is to Buy Me A Coffee. Via BMC you can donate a small one-off amount (or a large amount if you really want to; I won’t say no 😋) towards my writing. And if you donate, I’ll gift you books 2 & 3 of the Reunion Series in .epub format (free convertors to get the .epub file into a format you can read on your Kindle are readily available). Please be assured that I’ll never send you unsolicited emails or share your email address with others.

And don’t forget that you can also subscribe to my free newsletter. Every so often (that’s the best timetable I’ve come up with so far) I’ll send out a newsletter detailing what’s been happening in my writing world. Don’t worry, I won’t spam you with advertisements, or anything like that.

Anyway, thanks for visiting. I hope you’ve enjoyed yourself and that I’ll see you again soon!

S.C. Mae
