Let’s keep our students safe. Together we can raise awareness of exploitative behaviour.

One year in- one hundred followers?

Big hugs! I could be my centenary day today. ♥ Its a big ask but ask then it shall be given…

Yay! I can’t believe it’s been a year that I’ve been here! If four more folk follow today, then I’ll have a hundred followers. Thanks! Your support makes me happy. What I rely upon is the generosity of my followers to spread the news about my novel. Then, we can empower college & Uni students to stay safe and avoid falling prey to gangs. Or even anyone else heading off for ventures new.

So, to give a heads up to young adults then just direct them to Amazon or even better download a copy of ‘What If I Go?’ for a fresher you know. It could be an essential part of their kit leaving home.

Remember, it’s because they’re worth it. And so are you!

A Feast of Holiday Reading

Don’t forget to pack a book or your ereader/tablet. Today the roads and airports are crazy. The schools  and colleges have finished. Yay!

Loose yourself within the pages to discover new places and people. It’s such a treat to have the time to read a whole novel. Don’t you think? I’m engrossed in some interesting historical fiction about my area. It goes way back to the Roundheads and Queen Mary and King James. There are feasts and battles galore! Pigeon pie was a meal fit for royalty, then. Today, I had salmon in pastry with prawns in a white wine sauce. That was delicious. Somehow I didn’t fancy pigeon pie!

Lately, I have been for a lovely picnic at a farm park and walked in a Hall gardens only last night. So, I’m grateful for the good weather and the freedom to roam the UK. Those ancient battles enabled my right of passage locally. What a debt I owe my ancestors. How blessed I am. If you like, call it essential research that I’m carrying out. Or it may be that I’m just taking time out to smell the roses.

Hoping you get the chance to do likewise, asap.

 

 

 

 

Review Magic- Please CONTINUE to do it!

I found this on Pinterest and agree whole heartily with the creator. DA-_XyJUQAAJjnr

I am grateful for your time to help me spread the word on keeping safe. Please encourage summer reading for students. They matter. I wrote What If I Go? as a heads up on the signs of grooming and violent controlling behaviour. Let’s help stop the perpetrators?

Thanks!

Review of a similar story-The Bigger Fish

This short story mirrors my own, What If I Go? It is suitable for a younger audience if you find my novel too challenging this will more subtly warn young adults onward of the dangers of taking hard drugs.

It also raises awareness of the sensitive topic of sexual exploitation within a short story.

The book is called ‘The Bigger Fish’ by Magdel Roets see

I highly recommend this empowering quick read. Happy Reading!

 

Easter- More than eating chocolate

I am really looking forward to eating chocolate after Lent, don’t get me wrong!

However, my sacrifice was nothing. I’m celebrating passion week with a free giveaway of my thriller giving the heads up to students about staying safe from gangs.

Please, join in the fun. Someone has to win. Like this post or follow me on Twitter  @pollyjwhite4.

Enjoy the countdown to a long weekend.
