I know this is a stupid question but what do you think about a book like Fifty Shades of Grey being sold in grocery stores and your book being banned because of it’s graphic content. I asked my store years ago and was told your book detailed too much but in reading Fifty Shades I am shocked. I am curious. Your book inspires. Thank you for putting your life on the line to help others.

Dear Kristen,

Good question! Thank you for noticing. I have read all three Fifty Shades books and thought the same myself. Maybe because the Fifty Shades series of books are fiction, not real life, and my story reveals the reality of child sexual abuse. There are many books in the grocery store that are much more detailed in a sexual way than my story. I can’t explain this either. I do not know who makes decisions about what types of books are allowed, but in my opinion, they must not have read my book and judged it without proper knowledge.

Thank you for sharing you found my story inspiring. It’s what I had hoped for and when the sequel is published one day, it is my hope that it too will inspire. Maybe by then both books will be sold at the same time, just as the Fifty Shade’s 3-packs are!

Karen
