A Million Heartbreaks is the heart wrenching and anger provoking chronicle of Basil Jones’s journey through parental neglect by a crack addicted mother and sexual abuse from a family rampant with a sexual abuse history. The abuse wasn’t just from within the family, it came from neighbors and babysitters as well.
With a passion for both writing and children’s advocacy, Dom LaRay is a lyrical maven and a verbal force to be reckoned with. A lifelong love affair with writing led her to the release of Releasing a Caged in Child, a book of poetry that would go on to sell over 10,000 copies. As a follow up to her stunning debut, Xxposed was released as a spoken word compilation in 2007. The critical acclaim garnered by its release landed Dom on the cover of Gospel Music Magazine as Spoken Word Artist of the Month. This would be followed by many more accolades in the form of a nomination for a Spoken Word Billboard Award in 2012 in both the Lyrical Influence and Rising New Artist categories.
"A Million Heartbreaks was a very intense read leaving the reader on the edge of an emotional cliff. I loved how the Author allowed the character Basil Jones to tell the story without forcing the details. I would like to known about the family Basil came from and seen more interaction with Carla but overall, I give this book 4 stars." - Jamison Grant
