Gail Johnston, a member of the Carlinville Writer's Guild, held her book launch last Saturday. Titled, The Journey of Survival in Apple Creek Farm, is her first traditionally published work. She has self published a book of poems and a children's book.
I was fortunate to be invited to her book launch in Chatham, Illinois and was one of 25 people in attendance. Gail talked about her travels from poet to novelist and from self-published to finding a publisher to produce her non-fiction novel on escaping an abusive relationship.
Gail also speaks to church groups, women's groups and others concerning the abuse of women and how to escape.
The book is available on Amazon and well worth the read.
