Kerry Casey (caseykerry) Hi goodreads people.
My second book is due out in the coming months and is titled 'Shaken' A story of emotional abuse and depression. It serves as a bio story and self help book for those in emotionally abusive situations.

I'd just like to gauge this group to see if anyone would be interesting in reading/reviewing when it comes to print soon?

Kindest Regards-Kerry

Faith Colburn (faithanncolburn) | 24 comments I'd be happy to see it. I'm working on a novel, that's based on my mother's life. she was a victim of abuse by a trusted professional. This happened during the 1940s when there wasn't a lot of help for such victims. Maybe I'll get some ideas from your book on how she and her family may stumble into ways to heal.

If you're asking about my novel in progress it's like this:
You asked about my mother's abuse: When my mother was pregnant with me, her first, the local GP told her her pelvis was too narrow for a vaginal birth and he sent her to an OB/Gyn in the neighboring town. This so called-specialist told mom he could stretch her pelvis so she would not have to undergo a dangerous C-section. Had her terrified of the surgery (which was more traumatic in 1946) So during each of her pre-natal visits he forced some kind of instrument into her vagina and supposedly separated her pelvic bones so she could give vaginal birth. Then, when mom went into labor, he let her try to deliver for 72 hours until her uterus wouldn't contract anymore. Then he did the C-section. When I actually came out alive, he told my dad I would not live very long and any life I had would be in a vegetative state. (because of the trauma of the long labor) So, to sum up, my whole life has been gravy, but my parents never completely recovered.

Alayna-Renee (princessalayna) | 27 comments I would be extremely happy to read/review this type of book. I keep a blog (www.jadedelegance.net) that deals with a number of psychology-oriented topics, and many of my writings deal with the process of dealing with abuse (from a female perspective.)

Certainly keep in touch, and keep me in mind!

Cheers,
