First let me start off by saying thank you! Thank you for the love and kindness I am shown everyday by so many friends and strangers alike. Thank you for having a healthcare system that while under attack by the government is a hell of a lot better than where I came from. Everyday I am here I fall in love with you more and more every day.
This January the world was introduced to a new President of the United States of America. As a Transwoman I heard of the changes that are about to sweep through a country I onced loved with every fiber of my body. I started to fear for lives of those I have never even met. I started to feel even more grateful for this beautiful place which I live in. Yeah we don’t have Marriage Equality here. But we don’t have a bunch of mad men taking away the rights of women. Men who were given birth by a woman. Yet to each one of them take a moral high horse saying they know what is best for a whole gender of people. Yet not one woman was in that room while it was signed.
I watched the same man tell the world that he wanted a woman for Education Secretary. A person who has never went to University. Who has never had to feel the struggle that so many parents have had to, all in hopes that their children will reach something they could not. A person who did not even understand that schools are no place for guns even on the fear of a “bear” attack (Something that has never been known to happen at a school before).
Then I watched that same man chose a person who supports his view about global warming. That it is not real, that it is not happening.
Then I watch he also take the oath with another man who Hates the lgbt+ community. My stomach turned in a fear that gripped me more than anything ever has.
I saw that a church who claimed that it was closer to God than any other was joining with him as they allowed their Choir to sing for him. My mind was drawn back to a time when thousands stood cheering on Hitler in the 1930’s.
Then like a candle lit in the darkness of the possible future. Something Magical happened I watched city by city all over the world women and men standing up for the rights of those who they all fear might be affected by the hate of these man who are in change of a country. My heart swelled in tears of joy and hope for the future. I felt this feeling only once before and that was when the Berlin Wall Fell. I was in amazement that even those women stood for what was right. Who cares if there was celebrities saying somethings that were a bit Hypocritical. There were millions of hearts worldwide for once saying with one simple heart “Not going to happen again”.
Then my heart sank as I read texts and messages of other people supporting the hate that was elected. Oh I fear for the future of my children should these men continue with their hate filled mission. But I am not crippled, I will not sit idle as others fight. I will stand when I can and where I can for my voice will never be silent. So please join with the world to stop this madman, Speak Up before it is too late.

I’m not going to do this one again so plan your calendars. All that I ask is you take the time to kindly post a review on Goodreads – The Shadow of Ally or on Amazon. Please enjoy the book ~Ally
Sorry everyone but I have been working on my second book Project Billy. I am just about 2000 words. I have added a photo that I will be putting in the book as well. I need to get my dad on the phone again I am still trying to find out a few juicy bits. I want to know who his first crush was on. This might be a hard one for him to remember but I am probing his memory for other things as well.
I might see if he can find my Aunts phone numbers. See if I can talk to them to fill in a few gaps.
Well going to keep it short as I am working so hard to sell the book and to get going on the second one.
Don’t forget there is a link to buy my first book on the side —————–>
Well a couple of days ago I started looking for ways to get my book out to the public via Fiverr.com well I paid money from my promotional budget for the book and it came back that over 11.6k worth of people looked at my book via the feed back from the analytics I got back from google. I started to research the true validity of Fiverr. I found that there is a HUGE loop hole that is that is called Hitleap.com combined with a plugin with your browser. You can spoof hits via Onion network from all over the world. The buyer (me) is never aware of what is really happening until you do the research.
How did I find this out? Well there was a HUGE red flag raised when I received my report..
If you look at the sources that clicked to see my book came from demographics that would not read it in the first place due to the subject material. Russia and Indonesia are not part of my sites analytics in fact I have never had a reader from these locations. That says a lot then I started looking at way to make money on my blog by listing LGBT books as a gig on Fiverr.com. During this research I found a link to Hitleap in a conversation on Quora.com where I answer questions about being Transgender.
What hitleap does is a link exchange to help bloggers get there site out in front of others by doing a click for a click style advertising. Meaning if you click someone’s link to there sight they will allow someone to click yours. At the core this is a great idea but fails due to legal hacking of a system. This is done by creating an app or a plugin that follows a link given to it. Thus fooling a system into thinking you are doing something you are not. Then you can log onto the Onion network and run the app while on there spoofing your IP address making it look like you are somewhere you are not.
So overall I have learned my lesson on Fiverr.com if they are offering to give your link to others Don’t waste your marketing budget on it. Now I am not saying all Fiverr services are going to have this happen to it, but I am saying BE CAREFUL buyer beware……
(oops now I have had a reader from Russia! welcome!)
Try reading this blog post with the Brady bunch theme.
There is a story that can’t be told and it happened a long long time ago,
When this woman needed some help, and she had no where to go.
Then the three ladies heard her plight, and then assisted, more than they know!
That’s the end of a real quick story, sorry I can’t offer more….
Okay now the silly part is done….
Stop singing, please, please, Please……..
That was not the end of the story! On the 17/1/17 a debt of gratitude was paid. I knew where these wonderful women worked. I’m so proud of the work that these the women did that every day i have no excuse but a debt to work harder!
So today after a year or more I surprised them with a book and I paid respect. Sadly only one was at work today. But you know what that one person might have never had a success story like mine. It felt like it was all she could do not to cry when faced with her success. We talked for what seemed like a lifetime. A hug was exchanged and two hearts joined in a wonderful moment of souls understanding love for one another.
When it comes down to it I am paying debts that cannot be paid in money. I am paying a debt of the soul. To say it was an easy thing to do is not truthful. I know that the sale of my book is very important to the future of my little children and my life. So there was the internal struggle of “why?”. Then to face the question at the core of every human life, greed. Though something unexpected started to fight back deep in my heart, the debt must be repaid! Louder than than the train in the middle of the night. It spoke of the truth of the soul and heart.
Flashback to the day i met these wonderful women. I walked in broken down and grieving beyond measure. Today I walked out with my head heald higher than ever before. The simple fact is I am I. Never again will I forget the love that was shown.

1000 words and the structure is starting to take form. I like writing my books like this. It allows my readers to build interest and possibly look forward to the future book release as there will come a time when the book is no longer part of the Blog.
I would also like to take the time to thank all the readers!
