It feels wonderful to know my story will benefit from the exposure a retailer of B & N’s magnitude can offer.
MIDLAND, Mich., April 25, 2017 – According to the American Society for the Positive Care of Children, more than 58,000 children in the US were sexually abused in 2016. In her memoir, Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down, Tina Truax, a Midland resident, recounts her experience of childhood sexual abuse, ensuing depression, and how she proceeded to build a life of armor.
Today I have the privilege of being a guest blogger for author Marlena Smith! I am a follower and fan, and appreciate this opportunity to introduce a few fun book facts about Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down.

Writing a memoir is tiring. I enjoyed the process, the things I’ve learned about myself, and even revisiting the challenging times that have made me the strong, thriving woman I am today, but now is the crucial time for book business.
While my friends and41xeub1r5bl colleagues are all atwitter about flowers and candy, date night and all things mushy, I sit in silent grief. I’m used to it now, after so many years, but it doesn’t get easier.
So many friends and fans have been anxiously awaiting my book baby. Nobody has waiting longer than me. It had to be the right time, and I had to be in the right place and frame of mind to do it right.
My origins are an integral part of the woman who stands before you today. I can’t change what happened to me, but I can do everything, including using my voice and words, to support and uplift others who have/are dealing with the same thing.
