The month of June has been a busy and celebratory month and I want to share with you all in this blog post a summary of everything. I am also celebrating with a giveaway of a signed copy of Isolation Junction which is at the bottom of this post and closes on the 22nd July.


At the end of May I found out I was nominated for the Inspirational BizMum Award 2017, you can read all about it on the blog post I published to announce the exciting news.

In June I was featured in the Hull Daily Mail online and in the paper for the nomination and how my book challenges the subject of domestic abuse in an entertaining way. Unfortunately the Hull Daily Mail website has been changed and the article no longer exists but above is a quick snap of the shorter version in the paper.

I finished reading this fantastic book and posted a review on my blog about it, find out my thoughts here.

It was my turn on the BritFic blog this month and so my article on finding your why went live, you can read the full article here.

Emma Mitchell shared my celebratory news of being nominated and my upcoming local TV appearance. Emma is a fantastic support to authors and also hosted my first ever blog tour, Emma has been nominated for the service to bloggers award in the Blogger Bash Awards 2017 and I wish her all the best of luck. You can see her article here.

On the 21st I featured on Estuary Evening News LIVE, I was interviewed at their studio and it was available in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire on Freeview Channel 7 and Virgin 159. Even you weren’t local you could still watch it on their Facebook pageas it was broadcasted LIVE there. This was my first TV appearance and you can watch the clip here, around 6 1/2 minutes in.

My Facebook Page reached 1,000 likes and is certainly one of the reasons as to why I have decided to run this giveaway (see the bottom of this post).

For those of you that don’t know I am also a Senior Lead Consultant for Jamberry and this year they opened their own foundation called Fight Against Domestic Violence (FADV). I have mentioned a link with the FADV before but this time I was able to share my story on these survivor story cards that were placed at the FADV Luncheon at the International Conference in Salt Lake City. I was able to watch remotely from the UK and was delighted to be brought on the stage and applauded for sharing my story. I felt like I was there and have made some fantastic connections.

My Huffington Post article went live but I also published it on my blog as I had to shorten the article, there’s now a short and long version you can read up on Learning To Love And Trust Again.

Another 5/5 review from Tracey who I connected with via the Hull Daily Mail article as she lives not far away from me. It has been a delight to talk with her and make another supportive blogger connection. Find out why she rated Isolation Junction 5/5 here.

I wasn’t expected to see that I had been quoted when I was tagged on Twitter. The DAVSS stands for Domestic Abuse Volunteer Support Services and is based in West Kent.

I can’t believe what a month I have had and going forward I am planning on creating a monthly wrap up, how exciting!

With all this happening its certainly a reason to celebrate and giveaway a signed copy of Isolation Junction, you can enter here:

Thank you once again for all of your continued support and good luck.
