the good news is ….

  1. feathers-and-flames-1024x683My guest post “Inspiration in the Worst of Places” is still being featured on Kurt Brindley’s wonderful blog “Relating to Humans“. He is still offering blog space to other like-minded authors willing to make a donation towards the film he will make. I am happy to think that I played a small part in getting his efforts off of the ground. As a bonus, I had 64 folks like my post, so I am quite pleased.
  2. My guest post has been removed from the offensive blog just as I requested. (See my post Yikes! Get me out of here for details.) This random blogger reposted it somehow thinking that my book supported his world view that the Islam religion is the “work of the devil”. (Those are his hateful words, not mine.) He has obviously not read my book. He did write back to tell me that I misunderstood his message; he was a peaceful man who wished no one ill. I chose not to reply. His claim is hard to believe when you look at the content on his blog, but I am grateful that he removed me from it with no further incident or discussion.
  3. My guest post got referenced on another blog, a wonderful blog called Janna Hill (I love her tagline: just living outloud and flinging cake against the wall.) She published a powerful poem about sexual assault along with the reference, and called the post A Poem & a Picture.  The image above is from her blog. I recommend a visit.
