I am hoping the drama of the last couple of days is finally at rest and as a community we can now move on and continue to support one another. In the best way we know how. No one wants to keep rehashing the negativity and drama.
To move on from that I am so honoured to have been contacted and asked to join a really important website yesterday and would love to share it all with you. It is something close to my heart. I write about all forms of abuse in my books and advocate against more specifically – sexual, violent and childhood abuse. This will be something new and I will be writing a research piece for them on the effects of cyber-bullying in the near future.
It is still in the building stage but it seems this is an issue which hits our community more than people like to verbalise. That as a whole many people keep to themselves when something happens. I have always stood up and been a voice for those who feel they cannot and it gives me great pleasure to find like minded authors.
This is the site.
We have also set up a secret support group on Facebook, although there is a public one too for general conversation. The secret group is by invitation only, for anyone who has suffered at the hands of any kind of bullying in their lifetime. The aim is to create a safe haven for those affected by the isolation of real life or online abuse and find support. You will never be judged or attacked and we hope it will be a means to help those affected by such things, heal.
If you wish to be added to the group (we vet those asking to join for the safety of all) then please add me as a friend on Facebook and send me a pm.

I want to end this with wishing you all a good day. Let’s make this a better week and get back to what we love – Books!!
