SHAME NATION by Sue Scheff with Melissa Schorr

Now available in paperback!

“Smart. Timely. Essential. The era’s must-read to renew Internet civility.” — Michele Borba ED.D, author of Unselfie

An essential toolkit to help everyone — from parents to teenagers to educators — take charge of their digital lives.

Online shame comes in many forms, and it’s surprising how much of an effect a simple tweet might have on your business, love life, or school peers. A rogue tweet might bring down a CEO; an army of trolls can run an individual off-line; and virtual harassment might cause real psychological damage. In Shame Nation, parent advocate and internet safety expert Sue Scheff presents an eye-opening examination around the rise in online shaming, and offers practical advice and tips including:

• Preventing digital disasters
• Defending your online reputation
• Building digital resilience
• Reclaiming online civility

Armed with the right knowledge and skills, everyone can play a positive part in the prevention and protection against online cruelty, and become more courageous and empathetic in their communities.

Shame Nation holds that elusive key to stopping the trend of online hate so kindness and compassion can prevail.” — Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life, and Only Love Today

“Scheff offers the latest insight as to why people publicly shame each other and will equip readers with the tools to protect themselves from what has now become the new Scarlet Letter.” — Ross Ellis, Founder and CEO, STOMP Out Bullying

Madison

Juliet Madison is a multi-published, award-nominated Australian author of eighteen books, whose passion for inspiring and empowering others through online courses and coaching led her to create non-fiction books as well as fiction. THE POWER OF CRYSTALS, her latest book with Ixia Press/Dover Publications (February 2020) came from her experience running a crystal shop and working with these gems from the earth through workshops and intuitive readings. THE SECRET LETTERS PROJECT published by Sourcebooks encourages people to find peace from their past, heal their emotions, as well as spread kindness, by writing ‘secret letters’ that express things to be acknowledged, celebrated, and released. With her additional flair for art, Juliet created an adult coloring and activity book, COLOR YOUR DREAMS, also by Sourcebooks, containing one hundred positive words to color and activities to embody that positive trait.

Her fiction books span multiple genres including romantic comedy with a touch of magic realism, small town series romance, and young adult mystery with a supernatural twist (THE DELTA G

IRLS five-book series, published by Diversion Books USA, and Audible). Her debut novel FAST FORWARD, about a twenty-five year old model who wakes up in the future as a fifty-year-old with a life she didn’t plan for, became an Amazon Top 100 Bestseller. Her novel THE JANUARY WISH, the first of six so far in her small town Tarrin’s Bay series, was a finalist in the Search for an Australian Star contest by Choc Lit Publishing, and several of her books have been finalists in the Australian Romance Readers Awards. Some of her titles have also been included in paperback anthologies with Harlequin/Harper Collins, Australia.

In addition to writing books, in her hometown on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, Juliet runs a center of self care for the mind, body, and spirit; Hart and Soul Studio, which offers a variety of healing services, yoga and mindfulness classes, creative and empowering workshops, kids activities, as well as four pop-up shops selling crystals, books, and Juliet’s artworks. She lives on a small farm with her partner, son, and an array of cute and noisy animals.

More information about Juliet, her books, her courses, and her business can be found at her website: www.julietmadison.com

She is also an active user of social media, especially Facebook and Instagram, where she shares updates and photos about her adventures in writing, art, crystals, cooking, animals, nature, spirituality, and making the most of life:
