FYI

I’ve just taken my e-book off of Booklocker.com. I’m going to be putting it up on Amazon.com, and it can’t be up on both places at the same time (per Amazon for Kindle). So, I’ll post here when the book is up and running on Amazon. Although it will come under the heading of Amazon for Kindle, it will be readable on any electronic device that accepts e-books.
It will take a few days (it’s a process that include re-formatting the book, re-titling it, writing the marketing material for it, et. al., but I believe it’ll be worth the wait. Stay tuned…

As for Cosby’s hung jury, as I understand it, it was one lone male juror who was the hold out. Our fight to end our rape culture (and the harassment that’s condoned, as well) will never be won – by anybody – until men join the fight. It’s not just a woman’s issue. Some men get that and will fight with us. As long as there are males who believe it’s their “right” to do whatever they want, where women are concerned, even if it means harassing and assaulting us, we will be handicapped in our fight. Decent men, who would never behave that way, HAVE to speak out against the kind of behavior that lets no woman feel safe from abuse.
As I’ve mentioned here before, I was almost one of Cosby’s victims. Back in ’72/73, he was trying to get me to come up to his hotel suite for a “tennis lesson.” I refused. Thankfully, I was spared what other women weren’t, who believed his come on lines about him helping their careers – THAT is sexual harassment. Tragically for those women, it went to the worst extreme and resulted in rape.
We will get another case going in another jurisdiction and, if it can be done, we will be able to get more of Cosby’s victims to testify. Maybe the next jury will be more reasonable and justice will finally be done for 60+ women whose lives were touched – and in some cases, ruined – by a serial harasser/rapist.

I want to introduce myself and my book to you. I am N. Hope Parry, the woman who, in 1992/93 had three highly-publicized sexual harassment lawsuits – I sued ABC TV, AFTRA, and the Stage Manager of “General Hospital.” I won all three and went on to write a book about the topic, HOW TO AVOID/HANDLE/LITIGATE OVER SEXUAL HARASSMENT (I also gave seminars based on the information in my book). The book is now up on Booklocker.com, at http://www.booklocker.com/books/4397.html. So many people could be helped by this book - there is much information in it about what sexual harassment is, how to handle it, and what the laws are. Sexual harassment doesn’t only happen to people in Show Biz, though – I put a lot of stories in the book about my harassment experiences in other lines of work, also, so a broader audience can relate to it. At the same time, I made sure it's an entertaining read. I'm a writer, graphic designer, master gardener, freelance photographer, and cat lover. I live in L.A. and am working on starting a screenwriting career. I like to help people when I can - that's why I wrote the book. Learn from my experience. If you're lucky enough to have work, in this economy, don't spend one more day on the job without the information in this book. Knowledge IS power!
