The debut novella by Anna L. Bragga
Fractured can be described as a psychological suspense story. Originally written with a young, predominantly teen audience in mind; since its release it has been embraced by people of all ages. The story is narrated by a young woman with a troubled history taking shelter in a homeless hostel in London in the year 1991. Her journal was discovered hidden inside a tin box beneath the floorboards, years after she left, and now the charity is hoping that publication will help them trace her.
Sarah Longthorne, CEO, Rainbow's End Hostel, writes: 'This is the journal of Deborah Rawlings, a former resident of Rainbow's End Hostel, south London. Twenty-three years old at the time of writing, she wanted to share her story as a warning to young people making their way in life. It is nevertheless a Pandora's Box wrought with intrigue owing to her fragmented memories and nightmares; the result of trauma. Her search for self-identity, and freedom to pursue a normal life, bleeds into each poignant chapter.'
'Her story is a gem of inspiration, reminding us that even after the most devastating betrayals and abandonment, there is always hope. We have since lost contact with Deborah, and hope that publication of her story will draw her back to us, so that we may personally thank her for her bravery, courage, and honesty.'

Alchemy is an ancient tradition whose goal is the transformation of an ordinary person into an extraordinary human being, an everyday life into a life imbued with spiritual meaning, divine purpose and passion. Lead to gold refers to the possibility of a spiritual upgrade, to the miraculous capacity of human beings to evolve to more refined, elegant, potent and complete expressions of their own divine natures.
Since forming Conscience Media in September 2010 (conceived originally as Conscience Communications), the concept has always been about giving form to expressions of conscience, the communication of my clients' messages of a distinctly moral nature, to key audiences, employing every medium at my disposal. And yes, on many occasions we have succeeded in changing the attitudes, beliefs and actions of those who matter, or at least a portion of them.
Conscience Media's approach is unique in that it seeks to use PR techniques to enlighten and educate, bringing modern day alchemy to each project, imbuing it with divine purpose, while working towards the communications objectives of its clients.
The Castle and the Moat
Why I chose this theme by Anna Bragga
We are looking at my castle, a representation of the solid structure in which knowledge and wisdom is stored, held safely through lifetimes.
The castle is a place to reflect, overlooking the protective, sacred still waters of the moat. The water represents the essence of love, intuition and psychic imprints, and emotions, all of which must be honoured in the alchemical process.
The mist represents my creativity and balance. Alchemical deeds are planned and executed within the stone walls and puffed into the ethers.
The full moon illuminates that which was hidden, so that it can be brought to light, examined, embraced, or if necessary, healed and released. This moon is full of creative ideas, dreams and visions waiting to be woven into stories and art, music and films. It is my private storehouse safely located off the boundaries of Earth, in the cosmos, where there are no limits.
