Blog Tour: Accident by Joanne Simon Tailele

Date Published: May 2013
Women's Fiction

Imagine spending the next ten years in a prison cell the size of your walk-in closet. 
When alcoholic soccer-mom Susan Jennings causes a fatal car accident, she is forced to face her addiction, fight to stay alive behind the dangerous prison walls and win her teenage daughter's forgiveness before she also falls trap to the devil hiding behind a clergyman's collar.


Wow, the amount of pain these characters go through is something I could not even imagine. To think that these are actually events that could happen so easily in the world today. It really hit close to home for me being a mom. 

The characters go through so much during this novel and each page just took me deeper and deeper into their pain and suffering. At points I didn't know if I was going to make it through.

I commend Joanne Simon Tailele for being able to write a novel like this and have it feel so real. There are so many aspects of the book that she had to have really took the time to get right. From the accident itself, to the repercussions, the legal matters that came as a result, the depression and turn to alcohol, and so much more.

This is a really deep novel that will have you really thinking about how easy our lives can be flipped completely upside down. 
Joanne Simon Tailele was born a midwest girl in Youngstown Ohio and wrote her first short story at the age of ten in blue colored pencil. For most of her life, writing was private, for her own enjoyment and therapy. In 2010, she discovered NANOWRIMO and challenged herself to write a 50K novel in 30 days. She finished it, but admits it was awful. After joining an online writer's group, she picked away at the story for a full year with the help of the other girls in my group from all over the globe. It took another year of edits and rewrites before she I joined a local writer's group and felt the script was ready for the public eye. Two and half years later, ACCIDENT went public. Her second novel, Town Without Mercy, was released Janaury, 2014. Joanne currently resides on Marco Island on the SW Gulf coast of Florida with her husband. The proud the parents of 8 his-and-hers kids and 9 grandkids, they spend their time boating and enjoying the white sandy beach of Marco Island when she is not writing.
