Black Angel shares what went into writing their first book and what you can gain from reading it.
This combination of stories and poems are a short collection I use to explore difficult subjects, such as sexual abuse and depression. I seek not only to bring awareness of these areas of trauma that many people face, but also to encourage others who have experienced these things to release some of their pain onto paper using the “Your Turn” pages throughout the book.
I wrote the book to try and reach people that feel like they’re alone in their experiences/ feelings. I want to bring encouragement to all, to ensure them that everything is going to be okay. I want to give everyone a space to write their feelings and realise and release the pain they’re feeling. Hopefully the words I have written help the reader to let go and express how they are feeling in a safe place, which is within my book.
