BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Author and gaslighting victim Cristina Pelle has retained TransMedia Group (www.transmediagroup.com) to publicize her new eBook about the pervasive psychological abuse that today affects countless women nationwide and that nearly destroyed her own sanity.
The eBook's title "Ingrid, I'm With You" refers to the 1944 film Gaslight starring Ingrid Bergman from where the term gaslighting comes.
Both the Academy Award winning actress and the author were gaslight victims, Ingrid fictionally but Cristina writes about how she was abused in real life by a "pathological narcissistic man" she was living with at the time, who made her believe she was going insane.
"We intend to bring to the public's attention that never before has there been a first-hand account of gaslighting," said TransMedia Group CEO Tom Madden, who is himself an author of such books as "Spin Man" and "King of the Condo."
Pelle's eBook is currently available on Lulu.com and iTunes and soon will appear on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online outlets.
"Our publicity will cover how clinicians coined the term from the 1944 film titled Gaslight, starring Bergman in the role of a gaslight victim, for which she won an Academy Award," said Madden.
"While the film was meant to scare audiences, our publicity will show how it was pale in comparison to the real psychological warfare and insidious abuse that Cristina is bringing into harsh light by her compelling account of the torment she lived through," said Madden.
According to Madden, the author believes gaslighting is not just psychological warfare, but spiritual warfare as female victims unknowingly fall into the trap of the pathological narcissist, or worse the narcissistic psychopath.
