Gloria Everleigh, author of One Small Word: Surviving Childhood Abuse
Read More Success Stories Here!
I had been writing and illustrating children's picture story books for a couple of years, when my publisher gave me a membership to the ALC as part of my publishing package. I had always wanted to write an adult book, but I had no idea where to start. So, when I saw the Book-in-a-Year program on the ALC, I immediately knew this was my way forward.
It was the combination of webinars, Author Circle and Book Launch Tool that made the perfect recipe for success. The ALC gave me instruction and guidance through its excellent webinars, and the motivation to reach my goals through its Book Launch Tool. The bonus was that I got to know other authors with whom I have kept in contact.
The whole process led me to writing a sequel to my first book. But it doesn't end there. I decided I'd like to learn how to write fiction, so I'm back on the ALC learning, and putting into practice the fascinating process that will enable me to publish my third book, a historical fiction work. All thanks to the ALC.
My advice for other authors is to join the ALC today. It really does work!
At a time when celebrities such as Sally Field and other adult survivors of childhood abuse are finding the courage to tell their stories, and governments are holding Royal Commissions into abuse within institutions, this memoir-based novel reveals the lengthy and difficult experience of abuse within the home. It provides a bright glimmer of hope for victims who have not yet started on their road to recovery. Readers share the life of Frankie, a 50-year-old social work student, and her dramatic memories of physical and sexual abuse at the hand of her father. Frankie journeys from despair to recovery, transforming into a strong woman who is able to turn the negativity of her life into positive help for others. You will experience her emotions at the time of the abuse, gain insight into how this affected her adult behaviour, and share her victory as she learned to overcome. "I would thoroughly recommend this book as a source of hope and inspiration to all those who have been affected by the impact of child abuse on their lives, and those who work with survivors. It demonstrates the importance of seeking help and support from others and breaking the silence that surrounds abuse. The book inspires the reader never to give up hope …" Geri Burnikell, Co-ordinator of SupportLine Reg. charity 1097419
