‘Martha’s Journals: Book One’ to be featured at this year’s Florida Library Association Book Exhibit in Orlando on May 4-6.

Martha Baker kept a journal of her thoughts and emotions since she was nine years old. Like others, her life changed direction many times and like most girls she tried to deny her strongest desires, but Martha could not deny her true nature. She wrote of her life and feelings, and of important events that greatly affected her with little mention of world events or pop culture. Author Thomas Isaac Franklin portrays the intriguing life and loves of Martha Baker in Martha’s Journals: Book One. He invites readers to follow Martha’s journey toward maturity and to feel her emotions through this narrative of her life.

In this book, the author concentrated on Martha’s emotional life, because her internal conflicts seemed to steer her more than outside forces. All of the most erotic and unbelievable events in this book are directly taken from Martha’s journals. Her journal entries were often graphic, uncensored, and raw; this book is intended for mature readers. Franklin has tried to avoid the use of crude language in his narrative as often as possible while chronicling Martha’s account of her life. To complete his narrative Franklin has interviewed Martha’s relatives, friends, and noteworthy characters mentioned in her journals to expand upon her journal entries.

As readers open Martha’s Journals: Book One, they will be privy to Martha’s deepest thoughts and emotions, some of which she would not verbalize to even her closest friends. This book chronicles Martha’s life from birth to womanhood, as she explores of her mind, body, and desires like few women could or would.

This book will be featured at the Florida Library Association Book Exhibit in Orlando, FL on May 4-6, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
