With the internet wide open for anyone to post anything through blogs, forums, reviews, comments, etc., without verification of facts; people (especially children, teens and young adults) have to be cautious of what they read online. As an author who has contributed to an anthology to benefit the Amanda Todd Society, which was started because Amanda Todd, a teen girl who committed suicide from being bullied online through rumors and accusations; as an adult and an author who has also experienced online bullying from a rival author and her agent, who created a hate-filled anonymous blog filled with negative suggestions which anyone can make up but without any merit or truth; I want to remind everyone to be wary of blogs written by anonymous writers, forum postings, and other so-called publications whose intent is to bring down a person. In order to weed through the wild west of so-called news on the internet, trust publications that have established credibility. Trust blogs that are unbiased, written by someone not using a pen name, are not sponsored or paid by a publisher or an author, do not fangirl a specific author unless it is in full disclosure that they are a fan site. If a blog is sponsored by or paid by a publisher, they need to fully disclose this bias on their site.
So, in that vein, I am posting news of myself that are from credible publications, news, and organizations.
