Use the hashtag #When It Happened and let your voice be heard on your own by posting on your own social media, or if you’d rather I share your words fill out this Google document and tell me your story. I’d like to begin this discussion now because April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
But my hope is to include as many stories as possible within the book itself.
If you have a story like Stella’s, and you want your voice to be heard….
If there’s something you wish more people understood about what you’ve gone through….
*WARNING: This letter contains spoilers for All Broke Down.
If you haven’t yet read that book, read at your own peril. So I actually rewrote some of their scenes trying to make that aspect of their connection more obvious.
So I let go of all the plans I had for her, and allowed her to tell me her story, which is about more than just sexual assault. And by having the ultimate control over everything from timing to editing to price, I’ll be able to ensure that I’m able to create exactly the story I envision.
Unfortunately, that means you won’t be seeing the paperback of ALL CLOSED OFF on the shelves in most stores. But I hope you’ll add the book on Goodreads, follow me on social media, and/or join my newsletter.
I promise to shout it all over the place when I have a set release date or pre-order links.
Thank you for listening as I told you the evolution of Stella’s story.
