As I shared in one of my earlier posts, October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I thought this would be a great time to share my soon-to-be-published book, Crawling Out, the story of my own journey of overcoming a life filled with domestic abuse.
You see, after pondering the alarming statistics on the many domestic abuse advocacy websites, I thought, how can I help? I realized this is a huge mountain to climb. The more I researched, the bigger it got. Well I went back to the old teachings of the nuns back in the day in Catholic school. Break it down, take small steps, maybe outline.
So I came up with the idea of enlarging my “Soon-to-be-Published” book flyer to an 11 x 17 size, printing several, and having Staples laminate them. I then started asking my neighbors, at home and at work, to help me raise domestic violence awareness by displaying my “Soon-to-be-Published” laminated message in their businesses. Happily, I had to keep returning to Staples to make more!
I am ecstatic to share with you a list of my helpers who readily hopped on board to help me spread the news of my new book and help put a stop to this epidemic that is swirling all around us. Domestic violence is one of the largest unmasked secrets and that has to change.

As you can see, the list of my local friends supporting my mission is quite long. I am so grateful for their support, grateful for them letting my soon-to-be-published newsletter take up space in their storefront windows.I am looking forward to watching this list grow!
I have already started to receive incredible feedback from women and men expressing the need for this information to be spread. Every person who has spoken to me has talked about either their experience or that of someone they know. Certainly affirming to me that the time for awareness and permission to unmask the secrecy is NOW.
Please take some time to stop by these wonderful local businesses and check out their websites. They are all great people. I would love to add you to my list. Please contact me at 860-628-8857 if you’d like to post one of my “Soon-to-be-Published” flyers in your place of business.
