"Soul Vomit is not your ordinary book or read. it is a smack in the face of realism and the cycle of domestic violence. Every story isn't pretty, and not all of them have a happy ending. the common theme is they all have a point. From beautifully written imagery in poems to the sometimes harsh language of the stories each page of this book is filled with meaning.
"Now in the preface you will read where the publisher states that if one person leaves their situation because of this book, then the book served its purpose. I am proud to tell you that yes, it has served it's purpose in that case. After 9 years of abuse, I left my abuser on January 28, 2013. The words in this book rand so true to me. the great thing us you don't have to be a victim to enjoy it. Read it. Listen to the signs. If you know someone it fits, don't condemn them...help them. After all, you don't know your story and how or why they are stuck there. Contrary to what people believe we don't like it, and we may have forgotten that there is another way."
