NBtM: They Called Me 33 by Karen Chaboyer

Congratulations to tour winner Lizzie M.

Thank you for your interest in hosting this tour, but all stops have been filled

Goddess Fish Promotions is organizing a Virtual Name Before the Masses Tour for They Called Me 33 by Karen Chaboyer, a BIOGRAPHY and AUTOBIOGRAPHY / Cultural, Ethnic, Regional available now from Tellwell Talent. The tour will run every Wednesday for 12 weeks starting on July 29, and Karen Chaboyer is available for guest post and interviews. A PDF, epub and mobi copy of the book is available for review in conjunction with a guest post or interview.

Karen Chaboyer will be awarding a $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.
Karen longed for acceptance, validation and love, but had no ability to form healthy, meaningful relationships. Born into a large family already suffering the effects of two generations of residential school, and surviving her own nine years at St. Margaret Indian Residential School, Karen (like everyone she knew) had been systematically stripped of her dignity, identity, language, culture, family and community support systems.

Not wanting to be alone as an adult, Karen tolerated unhealthy relationships with family and partners. Still, she was coping. But after suffering further trauma, Karen turned to alcohol and other addictions to numb her pain.

Eventually, Karen found the strength to reach out for help. She learned to grieve through layers of shame and was finally able to embrace her identity. Karen also discovered what has long been known in her culture – the healing power of sharing your story. Karen would now like to share this book, her story, with you.
