Hopewell, NJ -- Karyn Bristol, (55), a Hopewell resident and psychotherapist published, The Truth is a Theory, this month to rave reviews. Bristol, who maintains a therapy practice in Princeton, penned the novel over twelve years, writing mostly in the pre-dawn hours before her children woke up.
“I wanted to show my kids that if you’re willing to work hard and make sacrifices, dreams can come true,” said Bristol.
Indeed the sleep sacrifice has finally paid off. Kirkus Reviews calls Truth “an emotionally intense story of love and friendship.”
Bristol she says she drew upon her 20 years of experience as a couples’ therapist to create the relationships in the book. The reality of the characters and their relationships are what readers are raving about.
“The Truth is a Theory is the story of the assumptions we make about important people in our lives, and how these fatally flawed ‘truths’ play out for four female friends,” Bristol says. Which is appropriate given the support she has received from her friends and relatives.
In April of 2018, before the book was finalized and released, Bristol created a month-long pre-sale campaign on the publishing website Publishizer, and pre-sold over 500 books in less than a month. Her novel remained the #1 seller in the Literary Fiction category for 11 months after the campaign ended.
The book was just released and is now available on Amazon. You can read more about it on Amazon or on the author’s website, www.karynbristol.com.
