Self-Publishing Book Spotlight: ‘Jarred into Being’ by Pat Lawrence

Outskirts Press has always been blessed to work with many talented self-published authors. The road to self-publishing is often a grueling trek, but one that is deeply rewarding and enriching. So, forgive us if we toot a horn or two on behalf of the writers who’ve graced us with their stories with our regular Self-Publishing Book Spotlight.

This week we shine our spotlight on author Pat Lawrence and the gripping fiction, Jarred into Being.

After the horrific loss of her parents, Eva struggles for independence and freedom from her sexual predators. With only her will, wits and beauty to rely on, Eva’s every challenge tests the limits of her cunning and determination to survive.

The following morning Eva’s eyes opened slowly and focused on the glowing white hands of the clock on her nightstand: 5:18 a.m. The man Dwayne had sent into her room the night before was long gone, but the stale smell of him was everywhere: beer, marijuana, cheap cologne, dried semen.

She touched her face and the stinging pain was immediate. Instantly, she pulled her hand off the swelling. Lying naked under her bed covers, she stared upward at the cracks in the ceiling. They reminded her of an intricate, spider-webbed network of rivers and streams one might see on a map in a geography book. The explorer’s choice of which river to travel, she thought was crucial to the speed, success, even the survival of the entire journey.
