It is my pleasure to announce that
Nicholas Gagnier has released
All The Lonely People!
A heartfelt congratulations to my friend
for another amazing collection.
Here’s to many more to come!
We Will Not Be Silenced is a powerful anthology that I feel needs to be shared, read, and felt. Sexual assault and harassment awareness is important, especially in today’s political and social climate.
In an effort to help do this,
I’m giving away a short,
exclusive chapbook called
The Ghosts Behind Us.
Here are the rules:
Purchase the book (print or kindle version)
Share information about it on at least one social media
Just send me a screenshot (email, PM on Facebook, DM on Instagram) and make sure I have your email so I can send you a copy. I’m keeping the giveaway open until Sunday (12/16) at midnight. I’ll send the chapbook after the giveaway period ends.
Here’s a link to find We Will Not Be Silenced on Amazon:
Read more about the anthology here.
We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art is the result of survivors feeling compelled to do something after the strongly triggering Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings. Ultimately, it was decided to advocate, educate, and resist through art by creating an anthology. The final collection includes 166 pieces of writing and art from 95 contributors around the globe.
To help spread awareness about this important book, the editors and many contributors will be participating in two live Facebook events. The first takes place on Friday, November 30th from 4-7 PM EST. The second on Friday, December 7th from 7-10 PM EST. There is also going to be a big giveaway going on, including a short, exclusive chapbook of my own (emailed as a PDF), so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Here’s more info about my exclusive giveaway.
In addition to these live events, the editors and contributors will be sharing various details and information across their social media channels. Feel free to do the same.
The editors decided early on that this was a project of passion and compassion, not profit. Find further information about the use of royalties earned from this anthology here.
To help provide copies to others who might not otherwise be able to afford them, please visit the Go Fund Me page.
For individuals and organizations such as rape crisis centers, gender studies departments, and public libraries that that would like to receive a copy, but otherwise are not able to afford one can be added to a Wish List by emailing the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am happy to be a part of this incredible cause from Indie Blu(e), which is something I think many of us need. Not just fellow survivors, but for everyone. To help spread awareness of how these kinds of things affect us as victims, as survivors, and beyond. But furthermore, I think it’s important for people who have never experienced anything like what will be included in this collection — both men and women. It will help everyone understand the impact their actions can have upon a person.
We Will Not Be Silenced is coming very soon! Stay tuned for more details.

“When I awoke from the nightmare,
I reminded myself that I was alive.”
The blade cut into the night and flashed silver against the moonlight. And even though my ears heard no sounds but the thundering of my heart, I swore I could hear the sharp metal singing its high-pitched tune as it sliced through the air. It slipped through my skin like it was warm butter and at first I felt nothing. I wondered if maybe it was shock or disbelief. But then the pain started. Like someone injected gasoline into my bloodstream and lit a match. I watched as the thick, red liquid poured out of the fresh wound and begged for death. And as he stood over me, he licked my blood from his dagger and smiled down at me in a show of blood-stained teeth — right before everything went black.
When I awoke from the nightmare, I reminded myself that I was alive and the true face behind my fears liked it when I called him Daddy. The only comfort I found was knowing that death came for him first. Too bad he didn’t take the memories with him.
