I received an email, a photo and a 3 chapter sample from a young lady who read my book, THE RAPE OF INNOCENCE, three years ago and then immediately began writing her own. She finished her book a few weeks ago and guess who she wants to partner with her to get the word out there about date rape and date rape drugs? Yes, she chose me. The email touched my heart and I wanted to share a little piece of it, as pasted below.
... was painful and humiliating. I wanted to die to kill myself but fear of the unknown stopped me from trying. I happened upon your book when a friend gave it to me. She'd received it as a gift but didn't want to finish it since she'd never been abused. My life changed from chapter 1. Your story saved me. I cried with you and began to journal my own book as you said you did. I studied you and followed all your work until I felt strong enough to believe on my own. If you will, please consider my book for publication and be my partner in helping college students where the fight is still going on at Grambling and other colleges I'm sure.
