I am a new author of my first published fictional book entitled, Deflowered Lyric by JJ Staples. This novel was written to bring attention to child sexual abuse through glimpsing the childhoods of three main charters. Their journey through life reveals brokenness and strength that are intertwined together and expressed in a poetic prose. I start each chapter of the book with a lyrical poem to introduce the life stages of the characters. Although the topic of child sexual abuse is a somewhat forbidden and hidden conversation, I have attempted to shine a light on this subject with hopes of changing minds, policies and instances of this hideous crime. Our babies need protecting and we all have an obligation to keep them safe. Refusing to discuss this subject, hiding it or turning our heads only continues to further escalate and increase the number of adults who will later need help as they unravel the guilt and betrayal feelings from those whose job it was to protect them. I believe God has ordained me to carry out this charge as once a victim myself, I turned to him. His grace and mercy has healed me and set my life on a journey to save, aid and protect others. To god be the Glory.
I would be honored and privileged if you would consider reading then provide a review of my book.
