Children: Trigger warnings

My second book, Children, contains triggering scenes and topics. I decided to add a general warning on the front page:

This book includes depictions of sexual, physical, and emotional violence, and is only suitable for adult audiences.

Knowing that some readers have no wish to read about certain topics, I compiled as complete a list as I could. Please be aware that by reading this list you are risking giving yourself spoilers for both minor and major arcs in the book. Some of the triggers are only mentioned or appear in a single sentence/paragraph, nevertheless, they are present in the book.

I used the following list of triggers: http://www.laurenhannah.net/book-trigger-list/

  • alcoholism, alcohol
