What's new, Donna?
NAOMI & THE RECKONING
Naomi and The Reckoning, a novelette, written by Christine Sloan Stoddard and published by Finishing Line Press, was voiced by Donna for the audiobook version produced by Quail Bell Press & Productions. It will also be an animated short film, using Donna's narration, as well.
Naomi & The Reckoning is a novelette that follows Naomi, a young woman with a physical deformity living in Richmond, VA. Struggling with body acceptance all her life, Naomi also comes from a strict religious upbringing. Purity culture further complicated her relationship with her body and, now recently married, she can’t find sexual satisfaction. The book opens with five narrative poems that lead into the central story, a work of prose fiction.
