Here’s the promo video for my extended short story, Preludes.
(Please note: I’ve taken Preludes off wattpad, where the promo video lists it as being available and where I had uploaded it for free online viewing for over a year. Preludes is currently available at the other venues listed at the end of the video and below.)
Illuminating the horrors of child sexual abuse from a child’s perspective, Preludes is an extended short story chronicling the experiences of a nine-year-old boy as he struggles to survive sexual abuse by his father in a middle class American family in the 1960s. Preludes is based in significant part on my own childhood.
This video was made in a collaboration with Jennie Kondo, a highly skilled, highly talented photographer and video artist and the designer of the Preludes cover. Hope you’ll check it out.
