Guest Fest: Author Deana Zhollis Discusses Sexual Slavery in her Cinderella Fairy Tale

Deana_ZhollisI’m excited to introduce Deana Zhollis. I came across her book, the 9th Symbol, while perusing the Book of the Month on the Black Science Fiction Society. I was immediately taken-into her world and the interesting mixture of her fairy tale and alien domination. I enjoy stories that discuss freedom from sexual abuse.  Please check out her interview as well as her response to why she adds the theme of sexual slavery to her works.

A Blonde Girl Uses Sexuality and Violence to “Sucker Punch” her Male Sexual Tormentors

alicia_young0002When I was in middle school, I was the recipient of a sucker punch. All I remember was that I was trying to talk my way out of being in a gang and “Wham”, one of the girl’s punched me in my face.  I came “to” in darkness, surrounded by middle school feet on the floor. Suprisingly enough, my animal instinct kicked in and I was clutched hold to the girl’s hair. I tried to wrench every strand from the top of her head. It was gruesome for both of us. I’d imagine that some 28 years later that she’d be bald on one side . Certainly, a tragedy for both of us.
