Ralph Nelson Willett, Sheriff Dan Abbott, and Melanie Hooker announce a book signing for the benefit the of the Domestic Violence Coalition (DVC) of Van Buren County.
I am pleased to announce that I will be joining Sheriff Dan Abbott and Melanie Hooker of the Domestic Violence Coalition (DVC) for a book signing event. The event will take place Saturday, May 27th, 2017 at the Living Room Cafe in downtown South Haven, Michigan. All proceeds will benefit the DVC.
My latest book deals with domestic violence. While doing research for the book I connected with the DVC. In discussions with Melanie and others, I learned a lot about the issues facing domestic violence victims. The DVC attempts to aid victims with services such as temporary housing, filing for personal protection orders and education to try and break the cycle of abuse that victims often go through.
As part of my research, I found that my county does not have a shelter for domestic violence victims and must shuttle them to facilities in surrounding counties. I also learned that for Western Michigan, my county is second only to Kalamazoo County in the number of domestic violence crimes reported. The DVC’s long-term goal is to create a safe place that victims can go to to leave of dangerous situations.
For a donation of just $10 you will receive a signed paperback copy of my book The Release: Escape From Torment. Sheriff Dan Abbott and Melanie Hooker will be there to answer any questions you may have on how you can help to protect members of our community. If you can’t make it, I am also donating all royalties from all of my books sold from Amazon from May 27 through May 29. Click Here For the Amazon Link
