I should be doing self publishing things, like finishing my second novel, writing special features in my Inconstant Moon serialization blog, establishing my self publishing Imprint, getting my website set up to sell digital copies of my work, creating the book trailer &tc. But there are vital issues like copyright and civil rights are important to me as both a writer and citizen, but perhaps even more as a mother.
So although I’m a fiction writer, there is a clear need for what Jay Rosen calls “citizen journalism.” Which is why I’ve blogged rather a lot about Byron Sonne.
But I’ve made a point of using every opportunity to mention Bryon at ever opportunity. When you’re on the outside, it is really easy to forget about a political prisoner languishing behind bars.
Because of this, a search on my blogs will produce quite a few returns that mention Byron’s plight, but don’t necessarily add anything substantive to the conversation. Since the trial has now resumed, you might be interesting in reading or re-reading some of of these articles.
