I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you.
- Readers that obtained a copy of my book in any format
- Those of you that took a moment to leave a review/rating on Amazon or Goodreads
- Authors/Bloggers that featured my work on your site/page to help promote and raise awareness
- Supporters/Fans/Followers that Like/Share what I put out on my social media pages and write on this blog.
Over the last few days, you have shared my written work from this blog to Facebook over 208 times! That is just the last 4 blog posts over the last week. That truly speaks volumes. I can’t claim that this has technically gone “viral,” it is, however, a significant move forward from where I started one year ago.
Those of you that have been following along since the beginning, know that I’m not writing for the fortune and fame. My writing is therapeutic, it’s an aspect of my healing process and a way for my inner child to be heard. Writing allows me the opportunity to get out what I have been keeping in for so many years.
Many authors aspire to be the next Stephen King, Dean Koontz, J.K Rowling, or Nora Roberts. Fiction turned into movie deals, big box office hits or made for TV mini-series. I hope that my experience will break the cycle of abuse for another child. Maybe a parent will recognize the signs of grooming and take action before it’s too late. Perhaps other victims will be inspired to seek help when they are ready. Spouses/partners and family members will have a better understanding as to how to support a loved one that endured a similar trauma/abuse. To know that sharing my experience has helped another person, that is all I hope to achieve.
Thank You for helping me raise awareness. Thank You for deeming my work worthy of sharing/liking, reading and taking the time to leave a review. You have no idea how much that helps! Most importantly, Thank you for listening.
This is not a good-bye post, this is me recognizing each and every one of you and letting you now that I appreciate your support. Thank you for confirming that there is an audience and I’m not just talking to myself.
