#WritersPersevere My story

081717 Stack

 

I commented like crazy yesterday on the Twitter stream. For a bit. I actually found out some interesting bits about myself, and why I wrote some of the books I did.

No knowledge of who my ancestors are, or my place in flow of the land, and sky, did not prevent me from writing. Crosswinds: Past, Present, and Future Combine – my first work – explores this from another point of view.

Surviving severe physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse did not prevent me from writing. Bending the Bars and The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice is the result of my knowledge, of me, and millions of others.

Severe memory loss and brain damage didn’t make me stop writing.  If anything, it gave me more reason to write.  To bring my memory back.  At least the good parts.  Out of this came – Journey Through Life Lists.

Learning to live gluten free didn’t slow down my writing. In fact, as I learned to cook gluten free, people begged for my recipes. Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook is the result. As is the coming of age novel that accompanies them.

Losing my hearing, and my vision slowed me down. Only because I wanted to be able to continue after all of my vision was gone. There were no guides for an adult to learn how to use a screen reader after using a mouse to control their computer for decades. So, I spent a few years learning, and wrote VoiceOver with the Brailliant Braille Display so I could continue writing. And after the latest OSX update – I had to turn to it to find out why my braille display wasn’t working right!

Somewhere, lost in the depths of time, I wanted to see more science in novels. So I started the Trails series. Still hope to finish the last pair.

I tend to write in pairs. #writerspersevere

I want to write Karma’s Children to describe the millions of stories when adults have smacked down my needs. Don’t have a baby and female – Not qualified to work a job, give it to man, or a woman with someone to support. Don’t have a car, and not willing to drive an hour each way? You aren’t serious about working a job. That novel will be fun.

And it’s pair will cover even more scary features.

Then, there are the short stories I am trying to finish up. Only, I keep having more ideas for short stories.

And the two novellas I want to write.

Deafblind, and doing fine, most of the time. Difficulty walking, talking, and doing many daily things. Yet, I too am a #writerspersevere person.

Bending the Bars Thunderclap Campaign

Bending the Bars

 

I have attempted to use the Thunderclap program to help my books reach beyond my tiny follower collection. If I don’t succeed with the two I have chosen to try during the holiday season for books, I won’t try it again.

The problem is, you have to have up to 100 supporters. Each, click for each of the three social networks counts as a supporter.

So if you want to help, click the link, and add support on each of the three networks (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr).

Share the posts, so others can click the links.

Bending the Bars needs 41 more supporters in less than nine days to be posted. At this point, if it posts, it will reach a potential audience of 170,000 plus all additional audiences added by the remaining 40 supporters. Don’t worry if one of your networks only has a few followers.

If it doesn’t get enough supporters, it will not go out at all.

Bending the Bars is a painful book for some people. It may not be for you, or your audiences. However, shares may save a life. And that saved life, may save millions more in descendants, health or technology breakthroughs, and many other ways.

So, please support this book, or share the link to those who can.

If this book is not for your audiences, please support my other book.

Book Title: Bending the Bars
Genre: Abuse Survival
Age: Adult

Anne’s story need never be documented.
If existing law had protected Anne, and Ruby’s children, Ruby’s Law would never have been written.
Jo and Lennie begin a 20 year trek to find and rescue Anne from her abusive husband.
They rescue hundreds of other women, children, and the occasional man.
Often, the survivors have known no other life.
They have been conditioned to believe abuse is normal.
The search for Anne continues. Their hope begins to fade.
Bodies burn out.
More stations open.
More people try to escape. Stuck in the legal limbo land, where they are safe from abusers, while surrounded by other survivors, with little hope of full recovery. Few make it out to live beyond the bars that Ruby’s Law has given to protect them. It simply isn’t safe. Abusers wait out there. Often barely beyond the fence.
Can the New Underground Railroad Project stay on track to train abuse survivors to live abuse-free on their own?
Or will they remain behind the legal bars that protect them from their abusers?

Other notes:

Bending the Bars is a journey though recognition of abusers, and survivors in the United States. It recognizes how the laws protect the abusers at the expense of the abused. It also conveys reasons why so many stay when they are abused. They often feel there is no escape. Often, there isn’t. If they have children, they have to leave without them, potentially condemning their children to worse than if they stay. Legally. It shouldn’t be that way. Ruby’s Law is a weak start to grant safety to survivors, and a place to bend the bars of abuse, without breaking the survivors.

The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice – Abuse Survivor

Stork

 

Mistie Jolin dreams of a future like the ones she has read about in books. Her past won’t get her there. Only escape will.
College goes downhill when she realizes health care isn’t available to students with real medical needs.
The army is her last hope. Once there, she is pulled back into a past better buried, to uncover secrets she never dreamed existed.
Secrets that will haunt her, and hundreds more till they die. Mistie must face her fears, the past, and those she has come to trust. Her hope is that they will allow her to recover, and become a real person, rather than the shadow that creeps on the wall and follows her every move.

The Stork Mis-Delivered – Twice is a tale that could have happened. Many aspects have happened to many young girls, women, and even men. This is a violent tale. One that looks at the generational damage caused by abuse, neglect, and pain. There is no easy answer as to why survivors do not escape. Most have been conditioned since childhood to believe the abuse is normal. Or, they hope by bearing the abuse themselves, it prevents others from being abused. Often, survivors have nowhere safe to go. Or financial resources to reach a safe place. Laws bind children to their abuser. If they do escape, abusers follow, and bring them back into the endless cycle.
While any of these events could have occurred, this tale is not based on any real life, or combination of lives.

Rating: R.
Profanity: Obvious, unprinted.
Romance: None.
Sex: Off the page. Acknowledged. Violent acts acknowledged as well.
Violence: Alluded to. Court case that covers child sex abuse victims.
Originally written: 2010.

POV Characters: Mistie Jolin
Length: 80,000 words
