Here We Go Again (A Rant)

All the old gossip and lies about me are apparently cropping up again. I say apparently because I absolutely refuse to go look at precisely what's being said. However, due to some hate mail I've received wherein I've been accused AGAIN of being everything but a human being, it's safe to conclude the rumors are recycling—if indeed they ever stopped. (Don't know and will not look!) 

So here's what it boils down to: I released a lengthy statement about the situation back in October of 2016. Aside from EC having closed down on 1/1/17, literally nothing has changed. There are no updates to give because I don't have fuck all to do with those attention-seeking authors. I have moved on in life; maybe one day they will rid themselves of their bizarre obsession with me and do the same 💣💥💫

The Yuge Wall of Jina: It's Bigly (And Releases March 28th!)

Pre-Order Available in eBook

The first book in The Face Palm Chronicles is up for pre-order (woot!) You can click here to view and/or buy it at Amazon. FYI: This was listed as $4.49 online, but it will actually be $2.99 upon release. (I'm a stickler when it comes to the pricing being justified by the word count as I'm neither a fan of overvaluing nor devaluing my work!!) At any rate, if you pre-ordered it at a higher price, Amazon doesn't charge you until release day anyway so you'll still only be charged $2.99.

What To Expect

First of all, expect to belly laugh from start to finish 😉 This series spoofs the political idiocy that is our current reality in the USA, while offering unmistakable commentary on where I see the divisive path we're on leading to. I don't hit you over the head with it because my ultimate goal is to give you a cathartic laugh. I guess you could say I keep my message in the subtleties (i.e. the book is set in a future where the USA doesn't exist) and leave it at that.

Why I'm Writing In A Genre I'm Not Known For 

First of all, comedy is still comedy. That I usually write it in another genre doesn't mean my style has changed. Secondly and bluntly, I needed the emotional release writing these stories provided me with. I wrote the series for myself, my mom, and my daughters—they love it by the way!—because all 4 of us were changed by the 2016 election... and not in a good way. 

I think this series provides an emotional release through laughter that the average person in this country badly needs right now. Although I wrote it for those of us who are very much against everything Trump is and stands for, I hope those who disagree still read this if for no other reason than to get an understanding of where we're coming from... and hopefully develop some empathy that—currently—is lacking at best and nonexistent at worst.


Here's to laughter. It's still the best medicine ✌

My Back Catalog

My entire back catalog from EC has been digitally republished and most of my back catalog is now available in trade paperback too. All of my titles will be available in eBook and TPB—trade paperback—within the next 1-2 weeks. (There is finally light at the end of the tunnel lol.) 

This has been a tedious and time-consuming process and I thank you for bearing with me. I haven't had time as of late to answer reader email, but I have read them. I will answer questions as soon as I can. Thanks! ~ Tina/Jaid
