Empowerment Through Self-Expression

Coming soon! There’s a month to wait but… You maybe interested to know that an extract from the beginning of my novel, ‘What If I Go?’ outlining the dangers from gangs of sexual abuse for students, is to be published online at ‘The Voices Project’ on 10th October. Please go to their wonderful site here-

http://www.thevoicesproject.org/

The Voices Project is a non-judgemental venue for women, and also men, to express their personal stories and observations through poetry/prose to promote social change. The hope is to bring the voices of these individuals forward, providing a creative pathway leading to growth and empowerment, and in turn affecting everything within their lives. Although our main focus is on women’s literature, we do publish (and celebrate!) the voices of men, as it’s important we are all a part of the conversation and mission.

 

If you could direct traffic that way then abuse survivors could gain from the empathy found there. Thank-you!

Help! Abuse is Still Happening

Our countryside is blooming after the rain. These lilies are amazing. However, some things aren’t improving despite best efforts. Let’s stay vigil and keep trying to raise awareness of dangers. Sadly this was among this weeks news alongside terrorist activity.

Raising awareness and interrupting this activity is key. Standing together in love is the answer. What If I Go? attempts cultural cohesion. Please would you download a copy of my book for a friend?

Bank Holiday Fun!

I trust your bank holiday was fun and as productive like mine. See where I was made most welcome as a guest author here-

Our family cooked on the BBQ and did some healthy eating, mostly! This amazing book cover on an icing sheet was ordered online, when the book first came out. I sent some of that cake to a friend through the post. Unfortunately, there was no pattern remaining when it arrived so she was a little bamboozled! Haha! You can but try to spread the love.20170203_212949

Unfortunately the sexual exploitation of girls like Grace in What If I Go? are based on true stories recently televised on the BBC in the UK. See this weeks Three Girls drama series and the newspaper report following the showing here:

Book Club Celebration!

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks.” Matthew 7:7

Today I was able to thank my writers’ club for sticking by me. This amazing small group listened to excerpts from ‘What If I Go?’ carefully feeding back the truth. That helped with making edits and kept me believing in the project.

So, I offered my thanks for their incredible inspiration to remain focused:) It was lovely to eat cake with these friends.

Trusting that a tasty slice of similar blessing comes your way in the days ahead.
