If you remember, October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I did my second annual Share the <3 (#sharetheluv) campaign to raise money for the The National Domestic Violence Hotline. I pledged to match all donations my readers and followers made if they sent me their donation receipts. I heard through the grapevine, however, to wait until December to make my donation because the Avon Foundation for Women would be matching all donations made this month.

In a world gripped by organized crime, family dysfunction, and dim hopes of redemption, can true love persevere? For Sophie Taylor, a beautiful psychologist who lost everything when she violated an ethical boundary, and Grant Madsen, a handsome naval officer who sacrificed everything to protect a loved one, finding that love may carry an unbearable cost. Starting their lives over in Chicago, both are fighting influences from their family and running as fast as they can to escape the past. When their paths cross outside the parole officer’s door, the attraction is instantaneous. But a hidden connection may not only … Continue reading

October is the awareness month for two causes very important to me – Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer. Over the summer, we raised nearly $2,000 for The National Domestic Violence Hotline. I’m hoping we can meet or beat that between the two causes this month. So here’s the deal (edited 10/15 with new info): Make a donation to The Hotline here and I’ll match the total raised at the end of the month. Make a donation to NBCF here and I’ll match the total raised at the end of the month. Make a donation to any other organization serving domestic violence or breast cancer, … Continue reading
