LOS ANGELES, CA (May 7, 2015) – Author Lola Smirnova announced today that her latest novel Twisted will be listed for free on Amazon from May 7th through May 8th, 2015.
Twisted is a suspenseful new-adult novel. It tells the story of a young Ukrainian girl named Julia, whose family is struck with poverty after the fall of the Soviet Union. Her two older sisters leave home and become sex workers, glossing over the more distasteful aspects of their occupation, planting the seeds of both curiosity and greed in young Julia. She eventually finds the lure of easy money too beguiling and begins her journey into the darker aspects of drug abuse, drunken stupors, and the horrid and loveless life of a sex-for-sale prostitute. Julia quickly learns the money comes with a price.
Twisted is a work of fiction, but it is inspired by the author’s real life experiences making a living in the sex trade.
