)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival by Sue Julsen. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the autobiography and personal memoirs category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/bittermemories was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
Abducted by her father when she was three, Sarah found herself in a world of criminal neglect and unfathomable oppression as her father and stepmother perpetrated more and more horrible acts of verbal, mental and sexual abuse on the innocent girl.
So continually terrified was Sarah that she began to form separate personalities so that she herself did not have to face the hideous reality of her day to day life. Only through the nightmare pictures that the other personalities sometimes presented to her while she slept did Sarah have any hint about the horrific abuse she was being subjected to.
The personalities would block out time for Sarah and bear the horror of the experiences themselves so that their dear Sarah would not have to.
Although the names in this unforgettable story have been changed from those in real life, the horrors that occurred are actual. This tale of the author’s early life on the run from hunger, fear and molestation is a true and unnervingly gripping account of the extremes of neglect and mistreatment a child can undergo.
Bitter Memories is dedicated to all adult survivors of abuse and is written with the hope that exposing these horrors will help prevent them from happening to others.
317 pages in length, Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the autobiography and personal memoirs category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Bitter Memories meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $18.95.
Additionally, Bitter Memories can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks.
Format: 6 x 9 paperback cream
