T.B.Markinsons Second Book “Marionette”

This is the second book of T.B.Markinson the first “A woman Lost” was self published not so long ago, and now she introduces “Marionette” and with this book I wish her as much success as she wishes herself. To publish a book is an achievement in itself, to publish two, magnificent. TBM has self published, not an easy task and for this she should be applauded.


Title: Marionette

Author: T. B. Markinson

Cover Designer: Derek Murphy

Publication Date: December 2013


Paige Alexander is seventeen and has her whole life in front of her. One day her girlfriend comes home to discover that Paige has slit her wrists. Paige isn’t insane, but she acts like she is. Why?

After the incident, Paige agrees to go to therapy to appease her girlfriend, Jess. However, Paige doesn’t believe that therapy will help her. She believes she’s beyond help. Paige doesn’t want to find herself and she doesn’t want to relive her painful past in order to come to terms with it. What Paige wants is control over her life, which she hasn’t had since her birth.

During her childhood, Paige is blamed for a family tragedy, when in fact, her twin sister, Abbie was responsible. Abbie doesn’t come forward and Paige becomes the pariah of the family.

To add to Paige’s woes while attending a college in a small town in Colorado, the residents are in the midst of debating whether or not gays and lesbians should have equal rights. Tension is high and there’s a threat of violence. She isn’t out of the closet and pretends to be straight at school since she fears what will happen if her parents find out she’s a lesbian. Will she end up dead like her best friend, Alex?

  1. Wishing her all the best on a book that definitely sounds like a excellent read. Nothing like a good book. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

  2. You’ve provided a wonderful introduction to a new writer. The book sounds very interesting and I’ll definitely make a trip over to her blog. And I like to follow authors on Good Reads, also. Nice!

  3. Brilliant review! 20 years ago I had about 1400 books and all read, During the last 10 years I haven’t read one book. Very sad, but I have open many – but never got to the second chapter.
