Are you worried about your footprint on the internet? Have you sometimes asked yourself, if your private and professional online identities are in danger of being connected by others? Are you aware of the problem, but don’t have the slightest idea what to do about it? Do you just want to know how to stay safe and in control online?

LB: Seriously if you like fantasy romance with a twist you should try @vicorva 's Books and Bone. It's funny, it's sweet, the setting is unusual in the best possible way and the protagonist is great. Books and Necromancy should definitely be a genre.
I loved this book and I don't even like romance usually.
Just in case you can't find the boost I am talking about here's a link to where you can read the first three chapters and find links to buy it https://victoriacorva.xyz/books-bone-sample-chapters-1-3/
