unprotected - a promotion

Author Kristin Johnson is offering a special promotion on her book, "unprotected", which is about a child protection social worker. Here's a synopsis:
Unprotected is the story of Amanda Danscher, a young woman who accepts a position as a child protection social worker. She quickly becomes embroiled in a case against their Minnesota town's former champion hockey player and favorite son, Chuck Thomas, who will do anything to buck the system rather than work with it including whatever it takes to get Amanda out of his way. Luckily Amanda reconnects with Jacob, a new county attorney who has the means to help and protect her, but no clue how to break down her own defenses. Set against the backdrop of the always messy and complex world of child protection, Unprotected is ultimately about family and a young woman's discovery that there are all kinds of family and many places that can be called home.
Here's the link to the free Kindle download, which is available until the 30th.

I downloaded it this morning and hope to read it as soon as possible! Let me know what you think about it.

Unfortunately, Amazon does not seem to wish to acknowledge that there are other e-readers in the world. Particularly in Canada. Won't download it for anything other than a Kindle. I have a Kobo. I have software that can change it so I can read it on a Kobo. But Amazon is silly!

Ah, that's too bad. Unfortunately, I think the deal is only for the Kindle, as that is the only link the author provided to me. If other deals come up for other readers, I'll let you know.

I'll look for it at the library...

Nation's First Searchable Online & Mobile Database of Domestic Violence Programs


I’m writing you to see if you would post a story or add a link to any resource pages on your blog about the launch of the country’s very first searchable online database of domestic violence programs. It’s called ( and includes roughly all 3000 of the programs in the US.

When someone visits, in a matter of seconds – from a desktop, smartphone or tablet – that person can find help closest to them based on their location, language and service preferences.

I’m a college student helping out this worthy, breakthrough effort. This release ( talks about the important strategic issues this new free non-profit service resolves. Succinctly put, finding help online has been too difficult up until now.

The service is offered as a non-profit partnership between National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and a family charity, Theresa’s Fund. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and with 25% of women having experienced domestic violence, making your readers aware of this service is both timely and potentially life-saving.
