FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Carlsbad, CA - 10-28-2016) –Motivational Press today announced an agreement to publish I, Bully by Roy Dimond, which offers insight into why a bully chooses to hurt and intimidate, what victims experience, and why they are victims.
For release in Spring 2017.
I, Bully addresses the serious issue of cyber bullying. What makes this story unique is that it is told from the perspective of both the bully and the victim. The two main characters, the victim, Hannah and the bully, Eric, learn from each other in ways they could never have imagined. Hannah is a typical young girl in grade 8. She's completely focused on friends and feels her family doesn't understand. Hannah also feels invisible and her perception is that her older sister gets all the attention. It’s a good, middle class family, but struggling. Eric is also in grade 8, but his family is dysfunctional. Dad drinks and mom is barely keeping it together. Eric is filled with rage and takes it out on everyone. Eventually, spirit quests and restorative justice help build relationships that lead to enlightenment and reconciliation. Roy Dimond's exciting new novel I, Bully will empower and touch all who read it.
Motivational Press is excited to work with Roy Dimond to share with readers:
• Insight into one's own actions
• Understanding behavior from another's perspective
• Learning to laugh at oneself
• Experiencing the consequences of one's behavior
• Exploring the culture of the Elders
