Florida (I-Newswire) August 19, 2013 - Thomas-Jacob Publishing, LLC is pleased to announce that Melinda Clayton's novel, Appalachian Justice, is the Gold Medal Winner of Dan Poynter's Global Ebook Awards in the category of Popular Literature and Fiction.
A 2013 finalist for the University of North Carolina-Wilmington's Synergy Program and Sapphic Readers Book Club Book of the Year in 2011 (under a different imprint), Appalachian Justice is a work of southern fiction that delves deeply into social issues such as poverty, domestic violence, misogyny, and sexual orientation.
As Billy May explains, "We was sheltered in them hills. We didn't know much of nothin' about life outside of them mountains. Brother Hudson used to preach on such things down at the church, but most of us didn't have no idea what he was talkin' about."
In 1945, when Billy May was fourteen years old and orphaned, three local boys witnessed an incident in which Billy May's sexuality was called into question. Determined to teach her a lesson she would never forget, they orchestrated a brutal attack that changed the dynamics of the tiny coal mining village of Cedar Hollow, West Virginia forever.
Appalachian Justice is available from major bookstores including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Clayton has published numerous articles and short stories in various print and online magazines. In addition to writing, Dr. Clayton has an Ed.D. in Special Education Administration and is a licensed psychotherapist in the states of Florida and Colorado.
