When is a #PTSD not a PTSD book? When it isn’t what you expect or have been led to believe.
“In The Scribe of Salem: Ministers of the Mystery, the first book in the Ministers of the Mystery series, Kathie Costos takes readers on a wild fictional journey that has one foot in reality. Filled with suspense, historical intrigue, magic and scripture, get ready for an edge-of-your-seat novel that’ll leave you wanting more.”
For 4 decades, I’ve been saying the same thing but the suffering that didn’t need to happen kept happening. What I was saying was not, and is not, wrong. The problem is, this site didn’t get through to enough people. The videos didn’t get through to enough people. The non-fiction books I wrote didn’t get through enough and the fiction ones didn’t work.
There is a review coming out on Wednesday, January 18th. I couldn’t believe how much the reviewer got out of it. Yet, not once did she mention the term PTSD.
I figured, who knows horror more than people that survived the cause of their PTSD?
“Readers will also appreciate the tragic characters that Kathie Costos crafted. Each character has a backstory, a darkness that surrounds them. They try to get rid of that lingering shadow, yes, but it’s always there. This, paired with the author’s atmospheric writing, turns The Scribe of Salem into an almost modern-gothic novel that is in the same vein as Edgar Allan Poe’s works.”
I can’t wait until you can read the rest but for now, I hope you see that just because a lot of people are doing a lot of things to help others with PTSD, it is because we all matter!
