My Book – Survivors Not Statistics -Literary Agent Required
I wrote the story of mine and my childrens lives of abuse ,which sadly in someways is still ongoing.However I had never written a book before and wrote it in plain simple English so that all can relate to it as perhaps they can escape there life of abuse long before us.A number of months a go a well known and hugely respected Author Cathy Kelly asked me if she could read my book or manuscript unedited at that stage as she had heard about our story.I was more than honored.Cathy Kelly is one of Irelands best selling authors and is known World wide for your books so for little me a total unknown it has been a total honor to receive her encouragement and endorsement .
ENDORSEMENT BY CATHY KELLY
Lurleen’s story is a heartbreaking tale of one woman’s determination to survive pain and brutality. Survivors Not Statistics is the story of how courage and a huge heart, plus a fierce determination to take care of her family, got this amazing woman through hell to the other side. It’s quite simply page-turning and a must-read for anybody who cares about the plight of women in our society.She is a truly amazing, inspirational woman.
I received a email today from a top Publishing house within the USA that had read part of my book even though it had been unsolicited however there opinion was important to me.Thankfully they told me that the book and I quote SEEMED VERY GOOD and that I now need to get a literary agent in order to get it published .To have even received a positive review of the book in my own mind is a huge achievement for me as I am no journalist just a survivor of horrific abuse .
I have been given a list by the publishers of possible Literary Agents however I do know that I have many contacts through all my sites and I would really appreciate it if there is an agent as a connection that would be interested in taking on this book to please let me know.The reason for the book is two fold the first is to make my story known so that I can help others and show them how to get on to the road to been a survivor.The second is slightly different to what I have on my social posts but still is for victims.I want to use any proceeds from the book to set up a Non Profit with two other people and to create the plan that we have to help many victims of abuse whether they be Men.Women.Children or Teenagers or even the Elderly as Abuse is Abuse and all are entitled to support
What we are going to offer is at present no where within the USA and possibly the world so it is been kept a very close secret at present mainly due to people pretending to be me or this page.So until the plans are copyrighted and in place I can not disclose them but I will say that they will shake up the world for victims of abuse in a good way.So if you can help me to find an agent I would really appreciate it and thank you to all for your continuous support in my fight to stay alive and to ensure the safety of my two sons
