This intrepid tableau by @dannydisaster has got me thinking: is Ron a Camel man? You may not have noticed, but there are three brands of cigarettes for sale in my book universe: Trebuchets (gross) Malta Golds (a good smoke) and Indigo Moons (the best, but not sold everywhere). In every book there's also a hotel named after a butterfly: Hotel Mariposa in both SCARSTRUCK and I MISS THE WORLD, Hotel Papillon in others, and, in an unpublished sci fi novel, it's named Hotelo Svektratineo: that's semi-Esperanto for "hotel rainbow moth." It's all in homage to my very first published novel HOTEL BUTTERFLY. The point of this all is, isn't this tableau great!!!?!? #Repost@dannydisaster

Happy Friday! @kingshotpress kindly sent me a review copy of this erotica noir novel, Scarstruck by Violet Levoit. I read the opening chapters last night and can’t wait to read more. Look out for my review soon! 🖤
Buried half a mile beneath the desert sands of the US-Mexico border, exists a secret city that holds the promise of everything that draws refugees and immigrants to America––liberty, luxury and excess. . .
In this Terminal Autonomous Zone, two prophets will rise—one, a reckless seeker who believes the psychedelic mushrooms he’s discovered will spur a revolution in human consciousness; the other, a fire-and-brimstone preacher endowed by strange angels with a power that heals the sick and raises the dead—and as rival factions emerge around them, a march toward war begins . . .

JESSA JORDAN (noun) – A fearless, sarcastic Black femme learning, living and loving in Philadelphia, PA, USA. Although her roots are in Atlanta, GA, USA, Jessa has done her best to assimilate to Yankee living (she refuses to give up drinking sweet tea, though). Armed with a plethora of lipsticks, she has been known to drink the blood of misogynists and will punish anyone in the name of the Moon. As a writer, her style has been heavily influenced by the prose of Miranda July, Charles Bukowski, Anais Nin and Alex Elle. Tiny and powerful, Jessa swapped climbing trees in her youth for climbing poles in her 20s and is usually found dancing to equal parts Crime Mob and Lana Del Rey on any given night. Published in the likes of Shout Your Abortion, HUSTLER Magazine, and Subvrt Mag, she is now working on her first fiction novel, which will hopefully debut in 2021. @missjessajordan
