Do you now, or have you ever lived in a repressive society? Have you ever lived in a place or time where society’s expectations controlled almost every aspect of life, including the control of your parents and family?
Today, I’m talking about living in such a repressive society, which is central to my next book.
My latest work is a realistic fiction book inspired by actual life events.
My next book is about a little boy who was horribly sexually abused that grew up in the south during the 1960s. Yet, unfortunately, he lived in a society that unknowingly fostered this abuse.
My next book will be published in a few months.
Hi. This is Kurt B. Ellis, an author who self-publishes with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.
Stay tuned, and let me share more information about this repressive society in my upcoming book.
Society Fosters Abuse
On the surface, this society in North Carolina appeared to be a sleepy, conservative, unassuming, and uninspiring farming community.
Yet during the 1960s, this society still clung to a past governed by strict adherence to culture, religious intolerance, and extreme racism. Nevertheless, it was very resistant to change and modernization.
It became a very controlling society where children were taught not to question things. Instead, they were to blindly obey, not to speak until spoken to, and to be seen but not heard. A society where religion was used to justify almost every aspect of life, especially harsh discipline. Families trended toward dysfunction. And there were secrets, many secrets, deep, dark secrets.
The main character comes from an incredibly dysfunctional family, and this dysfunction prevented him from seeking assistance and ending his abuse. Instead, he suffered for years, controlled by his abusers in a place and time that ensured his silence and prevented him from speaking out.
My story is centered around his life: a life that is a journey from early boyhood sexual abuse and its effects, his struggles to overcome, his unwavering determination to survive, and his dogged determination to succeed and make something out of himself.
