Georgia Author Publicizes Nauseating Opening of New Book

CLARKSTON, GA, March 27, 2017– On Monday, the blog published the opening chapter of owner T. L. Curtis' new novella Show Her. The work is set in 2090 Louisville, Kentucky and follows the story of “Erika” as she struggles to maintain her reputation and sense of identity in the face of multiple infidelities by her husband as nearly the entire city looks to her for relationship advice. The book is set for release on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 across multiple major online book platforms such as, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

Advanced reviewers have reported that this first chapter did everything from sicken them to bring them to tears. Reviewer comments include:

"...I had tears in my eyes." (Stella, Louisville, Kentucky)

"It haunted me for weeks." (Amy, Stone Mountain, Georgia)

"People in the writing groups I belong to have even said it made them mildly nauseous," T. L. Curtis comments. "I wasn't aiming for that response in particular, but I am glad that the writing was vivid enough to elicit strong reactions one way or another."

Show Her opens with Erika being molested by her father. Curtis states that, though the scene has been labeled as “graphic” and “intense,” it is necessary for the reader to be able to understand some of Erika's future choices in life. Curtis is a licensed psychotherapist who is transitioning away from the field of social services to focus on a career in writing. She uses her clinical background to inform her character development and storytelling.

Show Her will also be available for download and mail delivery orders at  Gifting-giving is also available by ordering multiple copies and then noting the email or mailing addresses to which customers would like the book sent.
