I would love input on my summary and new book cover. Any other feedback, opinions, and such are always appreciated. Thanks.
Title : #JoinTheConversation
Author : CoralSands
Summary : These little hashtags pepper our lives. These are mine and how they represent me. At least that is how I wanted this book to be. A fluffy book about social norms using short articles using a hashtag as inspiration. However, it has grown and changed as I have.
You know that feeling of satisfaction when you make a really great point in a conversation, but then that moment of disappointment when you try to explain it later on and it all falls apart. Well, I hate that. I wanted a place for my not so short social media posts. I wanted to dig deeper into why I felt those posts or points were valid and whether I had good reason to believe my position. This became more important to me in 2016 as I watch our country and families become more divisive in its political climate.
On the Eve of POTUS 45’s inauguration, I challenged myself to step further outside my bubble. I sought out not only people who don’t share the same opinion as me in one or two things, but those that stood at the opposite spectrum. I wanted to understand them, but the further I researched, the more I realized it forced me to ask whether my current beliefs are consistent with my morals and ethics.
#JoinTheConversation is my contribution to the marketplace of ideas. Its an ongoing book of short essays surrounding various social, religious, and political topics. Many may be controversial and thus might offend. Hopefully, it stands up to scrutiny. If not, let me know. Maybe you will change my mind.
Don’t be afraid to join in the conversation; our fluid and diverse voices make our society unique.
