Update, Reminder

First off, my newest novella (The Perfect Murder) is being released on Halloween! It is a satirical/Dark Comedy How To guide to committing the perfect murder told by an inmate of a women’s prison, as recorded by her psychiatrist. Originally it was titled, “The Monologues of a Murder,” but I like #TPM better. If you would like to be reminded so you can pick it up I have an event posted on my Author page

The Perfect Murder

Secondly, make sure to like my page because with the new release I’m randomly selecting five people for a free copy. AND it is the best place for the latest updates on my writing! I know it may seem like I am a flake as I don’t write much on here, but lately I have been posting more on my Author Courtney M. Wendleton page than ever! I even released some information about another new book that might be released in time for Christmas! I also love hearing from everyone, so drop in say hi and have a little chat.

Third, I am still trying to raise money to produce my first audio book. I have raised $100, but am still far from my goal. Every little bit helps, and I can throw in a free copy of one of my books as a donation prize over $10. you can find it at https://www.gofundme.com/fs48u8as Thank you soo much!

Also I am still open for Author Spotlight Interviews. As well as entries for Sanctuary Edits!

Seperation of Home and Work

I have noticed that a lot of employers are keeping tabs on their workers through their social media pages. My question is WHY? Social media is outside of work, not on work property. What they do or say on the internet outside of work should not have any consequences at their job. It is probably because of my stance on this that I don’t have a job and that is stupid. My aunt has friends at work that she likes to talk to but is too afraid to add them to her Facebook page simply because some have their bosses as friends and she doesn’t want to lose her job.

How is it possible that people can be fired just because of their social media posts? If they go to work, and do their jobs well why should it matter what they do on Facebook? What kind of things they tweet about? Because it reflects poorly on the company? Honestly, who DOESN’t complain about their job? Not one person has a perfect job that they love all the time, so of course, if they had a bad day they might go vent about it on Facebook or in their blog. They shouldn’t be punished at work for how they feel. Now I don’t think that they should or do write bad things about their jobs or coworkers intentionally to start crap.

The whole point of this was, I found an article where a substitute teacher was fired from a Catholic school for announcing his upcoming wedding on Facebook. The simple fact that he is gay and publicly announced his wedding through social media, got him fired. He even said that everybody already KNEW he was gay before the announcement, but they fired him anyway. It is stupid and I think shouldn’t have happened. If it was any other straight person, it never would have happened. Social media should stay at home and have no repercussions at work.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/14/lonnie-billiard_n_6472566.html
