Reluctant to read Tatia’s Tattoo? Read this brief post.

Final_Tatia's Tattoo Cover trim sizeSome people have expressed reluctance to read Tatia’s Tattoo because of the subject matter – sex trafficking in small-town America. Following are some excerpt from a Facebook conversation with a recent reader:
 
Very good! 5 stars so far. I’m about half way through. I didn’t get my nap in today because I couldn’t put the book down.
 
I’m not done, but already find myself looking forward to the sequel.
 
I really like your writing style, not too wordy.
 
Being a victim of abuse myself, I was a little worried going into it, being a book about sex trafficking. A lot of writers these days go for shock value. But you’ve handled those bits and pieces very tactfully and I appreciate that.
 
Thank you for being respectful and not making us that are victims re-live it and proving that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
 
You can read the Preface and the first two chapters by clicking HERE and then clicking Download a Sample below the book cover. There is also a buy link there.
 
You can also find it at AMAZON.
Blessings,
