Title found at these libraries:


Impact presents an extended confrontation between a sexual assault victim and her assailants, as part of an imagined slightly revised court process, in order to understand why they did what they did and, on that basis, to make a recommendation to the court regarding sentence. It does not go ... as expected.

A must-read for men and women alike. An attempt to explain nothing short of misogyny.


"Edgy, insightful, terrific writing, propelled by rage against rape. Tittle writes in a fast-paced, dialogue-driven style that hurtles the reader from one confrontation to the next. Chock full of painful social observations .... " Hank Pellissier, Director of Humanist Global Charity, about Impact

"This is not an easy book to read, and there are times when you just have to close the book and breathe. ..." Mesca Elin, Psychochromatic Redemption, about Impact

"[Impact] it made me think (and will so for a long time) about the woman's place in society, about how men see us ..." Alexandra, Goodreads

"A deftly scripted novella by an author with a genuine flair for a riveting narrative style of storytelling that will engage the dedicated attention for women and men from first page to last, Impact effectively showcases the personal and social consequences of misogyny ... While highly recommended for community, college, and university library Contemporary General Fiction collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Impact is also readily available in a digital book format." Micah Andrew, Midwest Book Review
