All Lives Matter

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.

Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.

Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.

Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate.

So it goes.

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

∼ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ∼

Just a couple of days ago I was blabbing about Babe Walker‘s new book  American Babe -last in the White Girl Problems series- and how this little symbol, the hashtag, happened to make the fortune for the trio of friends and writers Cohen / Schoenhals / Cohen.

The Indie Corner


 Welcome to The Indie Corner!

As you may know, The Serial Reader (aka me) is open to receiving Advance Reading Copies and Review Copies of books. Soon after I’ve been listed on The Indie View, I got a huge amount of authors reaching me out asking for a shout-out on major platforms as Amazon, Goodreads, Twitter and every other “book-friendly” websites. As a matter of fact, I am overwhelmed with requests!

To be testimony of such creativity is definitely the best part of being a book blogger! If you are an Indie author, just let me congratulate you! I admire your talent and courage to go after your dream to become a writer!

Now, what’s The Indie Corner?

The indie Corner is a new section here on The Serial Reader where everyone can learn from each other and share their own experience in the publishing world. There will be interviews, tips and tricks and everything else you might want to know about being an independent writer.

I am not a professional reviewer. I am an avid reader and a newbie blogger. I love working with Indie authors, share my thoughts and help them promoting their work in the most effective way, and it is my sincere desire that The Indie Corner can serve as a catalyst to meaningful discussions about the perks of being a writer.

As always, feel free to comment and share your thoughts….and if you are an Indie author I really hope to see you around!

Welcome to The Indie Corner!

Knowledge To Prevent Violence: The Orlando Shooting

Untitled design-2


Happened again. Americans woke up to another mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. One of the worst in US history.

We count the victim, we mourn them. We blame the insane who cause all the suffering. We blame ISIS. We blame politicians. Still, we don’t know almost anything about who -armed with an AR-15-style assault rifle and a handgun- goes on a violent rampage and kills 50 people.

Who was Omar Mateen? Michael McDermott? James E. Holmes? Adam Lanza? (*) Just to name a few.

Those people are sons, brothers, husbands, neighbours. Those people are citizens! Forgotten, betrayed, incapable of process feelings. Whoever they are, they are people just like me and you. So why we don’t know them? Why we don’t know what’s tearing their souls apart to the point they need to do something so tragic like taking 50 people lives away?

We are social media experts, we know all about the Kardashians and the latest Hollywood scandal, but how much do we know about each others? The moral degradation of our society is costing us lives. We need to pay attention because Indifference kills people.

Today I say “Knowledge to prevent Violence” as something everybody can do. Because we need more than sadness, anger, shock and solidarity. We need to understand once for all why these things keep happening. And make it stop!
