Buy REVOLVER, Support the ACLU


Cara Stone is female, homeless, a chronic sufferer of depression, and a rape survivor.

In Trump's America this is already four strikes against her. After yesterday's passage of the ACHA through the House of Representatives, a bunch of rich white men decided these conditions are enough to deny people like Cara any chance at affordable health care.

I'm fucking sick and tired of this shit. 

I wrote Revolver in 2014 because I was sick at the state of American politics then, and it's only gotten worse in the years since. Back then, we had our wonderful, white, Christian, male Representatives and Senators telling us how rape was a gift from God, or that women rape so easy. They told us about legitimate rape versus enjoyable rape. All in an effort to defund Planned Parenthood and assert their Invisible Friend With Magic Powers granted dominion over the existence of all things female.

I was fed up. Revolver was the expression of the contempt I had for our politicians and the Americans who voted them into office. 

Yesterday, our representatives voted to destroy, if not outright murder, 24 million Americans. They then celebrated with a beer bash like it was a fucking frat house kegger, the kind Paul Ryan used to have in his college days, where he daydreamed of destroying Medicare.

Later that day, Trump then signed the perversely titled "religious freedom" executive order, which is big step forward toward weakening the Johnson Amendment and tearing down the wall separating church and state. As someone who does want to live in a theocracy like Saudi Arabia or Iran, I'm a big fan of the wall between church and state. In my opinion, the wall separating church and state is the only fucking wall this country needs, and it should be safeguarded, if not made taller and wider.

Ever since Trump took office, riding into Washington, D.C. on a tide of white nationalism, xenophobia, racism, sexism, and all around general fuckery and gross incompetence, we've seen this country grow ever more disgraceful, inch by inch, day by day. We've seen intolerance rise, antisemitism grow, and racists becoming far too comfortable publicly espousing their hate. We've even reached a point where we are now questioning, as a nation, whether or not it's OK to punch motherfucking Nazi's. In Steve Bannon, we have an actual fucking Nazi in the fucking White House, consulting a president who has colluded with Russia and is a treasonous traitor to this nation and currently under investigation by the FBI. In the House of Representatives, we have a bunch of fat cats overjoyed at their own pathetic callousness that after committing what is, arguably, the largest terror attack perpetrated against Americans they sat back and chugged some fucking Budweiser in celebration.

Enough is enough.

I voted against this type of horseshit, and I am deeply, deeply ashamed of what this country currently is, and what it is on the fast-track to becoming. I want to do more. I want to help fix this nation. One of the ways I can do more is to contribute to an organization like the ACLU. So, why not do a little bit of fundraising to help combat government tyranny?

I wrote Revolver in 2014. You can read more about why I wrote it over at The Grim Reader. Basically, sadly, it feels all the more prescient this year. Here's what it's all about:

Cara Stone is a broken woman: penniless, homeless, and hopeless. When given the chance to appear on television, she jumps at the opportunity to win a minimum of $5,000 for her family.

The state-run, crowdfunded series, Revolver, has been established by the nation’s moneyed elite to combat the increasing plight of class warfare.

There’s never been a Revolver contestant quite like Cara before. The corporate states of America are hungry for blood, and she promises to deliver.

You can buy it right now for 99c, and if you're a Kindle user, you can add on the audio upgrade for $1.99. I'll be using the income generated from this month's sales to help support the ACLU, and I'm hoping this book makes it way into a lot of hands. The more sales it generates, the bigger donation I can make.
