How you can help
How you can assist the cry for justice
Spread the word by social media
We welcome people linking to our blog, our Facebook page, and our Pinterest boards. We are also happy for people to re-post our posts, but please show common courtesy by not distorting the meaning of a post if you are only quoting parts from it. We can’t stop perpetrators of abuse from re-posting our stuff, but we don’t give them any oxygen for doing so, so we trash the automatic notification that says “Re-posted on blah-de-blah-wordpress.com.”
Ask libraries to stock our books
An easy way to help survivors of domestic abuse is to submit a request to your local library or domestic abuse resource center, that they stock some of the books on our Resources page. Of course, that would include the books we have written ourselves, but we not just ours: Lundy Bancroft, Leslie Vernick, Steven Tracy. . . any books that you think survivors would be glad to read. (see our Resources page for suggestions)
Write reviews on Amazon
Writing reviews of our books on Amazon and other web retailers, and ‘liking’ other people’s reviews if they are good, helps increase sales. Word of mouth and reader reviews are a big driver in books sales. Book sales are not about the money for us, so much as the fact that the word is getting out and victims are being set free from erroneous beliefs.
Add reviews on Amazon US for — Not Under Bondage A Cry For Justice . If you are feeling really diligent you might also like to add reviews to Amazon UK and Amazon Canada.
Reveiws submitted to Amazon US are not automatically transferred to Amazon’s other sites. 😦
Assist the team at this blog
We are open to offers of help from readers, but we need to get to know and trust you for a while on the blog first. If you feel moved to offer your skills or your time, get in touch with us by email. This work is growing organically and we don’t know where it will lead. We are mindful that we don’t want it to be stymied or white-anted, but we are also mindful that we don’t have the full picture of what God wants to do with this, and we are open to His leading and His gathering people together who want to work selflessly on this issue of awakening the evangelical church to domestic abuse.
We have a Suggestion Box where you can make suggestions; alternatively, you can contact us by email. Please bear in mind that we receive lots of emails and cannot be ‘friends’ with all our readers or share all the details of your daily lives, but we do try to reply to serious concerns and questions.
Please give your email a descriptive subject line if you are emailing us. “Blog question” is not very descriptive. Neither is “From Susan.” A descriptive subject line would be “My church is threatening to excommunicate me.” A good subject line helps us sort through our in-boxes and keep track of things. And if you are referring to a web site, web page or blog post, please give us the exact link. That saves us time.
