TRIGGERS

I want you to enjoy my books. To feel comfortable that the content matches your taste and won't open any old wounds or sensitivities. 

 

Sometimes though a story needs to follow a certain path... one that may touch upon subjects sensitive to certain individuals. To not follow that path would damage the story.

 

If you have subjects you prefer to avoid, you can check the guide below to see the triggers per book. The triggers may contain story spoilers.

 

House of Scarabs

 

RAPE SCENE

 

The characters are being controlled by the gods who reside within them. To stop the main characters from abandoning their quest, the gods project an illusion of each character's worse fear. It was obvious to me that Ellie was such a strong character that her only fear would be an utter loss of control. Her hatred of men would make a rape her only true fear. I struggled with this storyline. Ultimately, I decided it would be disingenuous to change her fear to something less horrifying.

 

The rape scene is graphic, however, Ellie soon realises that it is nothing more than an illusion. The gods using her own fear to control her. From this point, the power shifts somewhat from the gods to the main characters. 

 

 

SPIDERS

 

In the same storyline as the rape scene the gods torment Ben with hundreds of thousands of spiders. I am morbidly afraid of spiders so this was projecting my own fear onto my macho main character. I liked the quirky juxtaposition of the alpha male being brought to his knees by a bunch of arachnids.  This scene is quite horrifying if you are afraid of spiders. 

 

 

SWEARING

 

There is mild to medium swearing within the book as befits the struggle the characters face.

 

 

SEXUAL CONTENT

 

There is minor sexual content hinted at behind closed doors.

Genesis

 

VIOLENCE

Genesis contains little or no violence. 

 

PHOBIA TRIGGERS

 

There are no commonly known phobia triggers in this book.

 

 

SWEARING

 

The book is predominantly based in a religious environment with devout people so there is no swearing in it. To be honest I wouldn't know what words would have been used in ancient pharaonic times.

 

 

SEXUAL CONTENT

 

There is no sexual content.
