The First 100


Recommended Posts

  • Members

For anyone interested...out of necessity as a single self-employed person and after a year of crying enough tears to overflow the Monterey Bay, never sleeping, and putting myself on a financial edge, etc. I am forcing myself to go forward with my novel that I put on hold when my brother committed suicide 14-months ago. Am donating a % of proceeds to Golden Retriever Rescue and Suicide Prevention. 60% of shelter animals are put to death and the thought of helping some find good homes makes me feel better. And I know that there is NOT nearly enough suicide awareness/prevention. It is still harder for me to believe he did this than if they announced on the Evening News that the world was ending tomorrow.

I am just getting back to it...so if anyone would care to throw some support my way...the first 100 that order a copy will be listed in the acknowledgments [with their permission] the copies will ship in mid-November.

I'd worked over 100 hrs a week for 18 months in the UCLA Writing program on this novel, driven, as it represented retraining after an accident cost me my career. It meant everything, including a new life. I'd just the editor's enthusiastic comments/changes when he died, and just pushed it aside when he died.

Ironically, written before his death it has a humanistic message of transformation and hope. In a way I tested my theory that "With a valiant heart anything is possible.' Can order off my site.

I hope that others who are suffering can also find a way to cope and feel pulled forward, even knowing that will never forget. Thanks, all best. http://www.suzannedecornelia.com/

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.- Facebook and Twitter Integration- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it. - Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible. 

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other. 

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
