Hello dear readers - I feel completely obligated to give a shout-out to an amazing group of people, over at Gravity Imprint of Booktrope Publishing. They throw books into your face that you need to read. Stories of surviving trauma, be it mental, physical, self inflicted, or damage done by others. A lot of these are memoirs - but don't let that fool you - they are more thriller than anything. They cut deep, and ring true.
This afternoon I've been hanging out with a bunch of the amazing Authors on the GRAVITY label on Facebook, as well as a bunch of fans. The goal? Raising awareness and charitable donations for the Joyful Heart Foundation. Joyful Heart is dedicated to helping victims of sexual and domestic abuse, as well as child abuse. This is a great charity - and an amazing group of people come to support it.
As I write this, I gladly get to tell you that the folks at Gravity have met their goal, but that doesn't mean you can't help out if you want. You can support them by visiting their website, and grabbing a few books. You can support Joyful Heart by heading over there and making a donation.
