Making Life Easy with Gwen Gistarb with guest Elle
Elle also a woman (duh, I know), and I wrote this novel because, well, because it was therapeutic to do so; however, I am publishing this novel to give a glimpse into why a young woman with many choices might choose the hell of abuse. It is a common choice that becomes an insidious handicap for many women because it is difficult to discuss and even more so to understand. This is me discussing it so that more might understand it. ? I encourage you to visit the 'A Good Cause' tab on this website to find out more about Break The Cycle and the work it is doing towards prevention of dating abuse among the youth population. I am not affiliated with the organization - I am simply a very strong supporter of their work.
Yes, I am terrified. It is terrifying to write a book and even more so to put it out into the world. My story might be embraced or rejected. It might tantalize, overwhelm, offend, or bore, and it is hard to insulate one's self against the opinions of the masses. I think, however, that one often regrets inaction much more than action.
It's good to talk.
