Kindle Deal on Sophie Lancaster Book

Throughout the month of October, Amazon Kindle has selected my book The Sophie Lancaster Story to become one of its special deals to be promoted to UK readers.alt

Since the book was relaunced on St George's Day in April, it has been an incredible success and I am delighted to have helped to spread the message that intolerance is unacceptable it today's society and that we all must ensure that nothing like the sickening attack on Sophie and her boyfriend Rob Maltby should be allowed to happen again.

I have been contacted through the Facebook Sophie Lancaster Group by many people who have read the book and I am grateful for their feedback, and the reviews on Amazon and on Goodreads. I am also working with voiceover artist Karen to produce an audio version of the book.

Stamp Out Prejudice Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere. RIP Sophie.

I am delighted to report that I am feeling much better and thank you to everyone who has read my blogs about my battle with hyperthyroidism. I am feeling a lot better now. I hope by blogging about the condition I have also helped to raise awareness. Thank you to Thyroid UK for covering the blog.

August is always a quieter time for me as a lot of my work it carried out in schools, but of course now they are back.

Fearns has already been in the press when pupils organised a Macmillan Coffee Morning with teaching assistant Debbie Thompson and it has now raised more than 700 pounds.

Haslingden High School has also been in the press with stories about ice dancer Isabelle Lord getting a place in the GB development squad, her brother Ben raising 10,000 pounds for a hospital where he was treated for cancer and swimmer Beth Hartwell travelling to America to join a swimming club.

Whitworth Community High School has also been in the news with students completing a citizenship course during the summer months.

I am also contracted by J and J Ormerod and the company's latest newsletter has been produced along with news stories about a kitchen being supplied for a church, directors retiring and the company posting record profits.

My final contact Veterans In Communities has had newsletters produced for August and September and news stories about an allotment project, member Darren Horsnell being in the final of Britain Has Spirit and the organisations annual general meeting.

Ad hoc jobs have also been carried out for Ayesha Communications about a degree course in British Sign Language, Helen Coates Beauty about cryotherapy being introduced to Rossendale, St Mary's Catholic Primary School where a Roald Dahl Day was held, Quilters who were first in a North West Competition and the Friends of Valley of Stone's last walk of the season. All made the press.

Other ad hoc jobs were for Dansworks about young ballet dancers landing a place in a prestigious ballet and a new sponsored kit for Stacksteads St Joseph's after theirs was damaged in flooding.

Meanwhile a steady stream of Rossendale Business Awards stories have hit the press and a big thank you to whoever nominated me for customer friendly business.

Busy, busy, busy and just how I like it. If you want your story told, just contact me.
