October has been a busy month with Domestic Violence Awareness Month and National Bullying Prevention Month. Organizations have been speaking out against the devastating issues of violence. Pacer.org reminds us that "the end of bullying begins with me." Stopbullying.org tells us to "be more than a bystander." Loveisrespect.org has teamed up with Mary Kay to provide a safe place for teens to text for support, and they have joined in on the No More campaign.
As October comes to an end, I'm hoping that raising awareness of these devastating issues won't.
Please join Susan Oloier and I during the month of November for the Speak Out Against...YA Book Tour.
I'm honored and thrilled to be traveling around the blogosphere with Susan, visiting everyone's sites. Our tour will include topics related to the release of Break From You (YA contemporary fiction on dating abuse) and Outcast (YA contemporary fiction on bullying,) giveaways, ways to speak out against the tough issues of bullying and dating abuse, parental advisories, happy ending vs. tragic endings, bullying today vs. bullying twenty years ago, the facts of dating abuse, related popular culture, and indie publishing tips.
It's time to raise our voices and Speak Out Against...!
I will keep everyone posted on our tour, so that you can join Susan and I as we visit everyone's sites.
