In my book, I wrote about growing up on a farm, how I could smell cattle manure and how I could taste raw cow milk when I was forced to drink the thick yellowish disgusting liquid. I bring my audience with me throughout my journey, so that they can feel and sense my emotions at the time. Human beings love connection, they want to feel included, while it may even help them resonate with the story, it’s always great to be personable.
In my book, I wrote about growing up on a farm, how I could smell cattle manure and how I could taste raw cow milk when I was forced to drink the thick yellowish disgusting liquid. I could still see and hear father’s scorching voice when he yelled and pierced my little ears as tears rolled down my eyes. I brought the reader inside my story and on my journey still gave me nightmares and what was still making me sad in my adult life. I wrote about an event when my then boyfriend knocked me unconscious with the back of a pistol during one of our many arguments. He constantly reminded me that I deserved it because I was stubborn and didn’t respect him.
The writing process was extremely therapeutic. I realized that I had been feeling guilty my entire adult life, afraid of being judged, I had done nothing wrong for my parents to choose to take me out of school so that they would try and marry me to an older man.
It made me wonder how many young girls’ and adults were also suffering or walking around with the same guilt I had carried for years. I decided that I wanted to try to get my book published to help other abuse victims.
However, I was discouraged when I started looking for traditional publishers to see the hoops you had to jump through just to get someone to look at your manuscript I wasn’t looking for mass-market appeal; I was looking for a way to get my book into the hands of people who NEEDED to hear and be Inspired by my story.
