2024 is going to be a rough year, and I don’t say that because I’m a pessimist. I say it because unless 🟠🤡 gives up his run for presidency and decides to retire from public life, we are going to be in for a shitty time.

Trump will continue to be callous and cruel and just so very full of 🐂💩. And watching a dangerous percentage of Americans citizens continue to believe his lies will be infuriating.

I don’t know how they got so confused, but their ignorance is dangerous and annoying AF. It’s going to be in our faces this year.

There will be a deluge of impotent rage because, as individuals, there is only so much we can do to decide the future.

That doesn’t mean we don’t take action. Trust me, I will be acting up—big time—but action alone will not help my impotent rage because I’m not actually going to solve this *waves hand around at the almost crushing amount of issues to resolve*.

Therefore, I’m going to have some emotions to deal with while we attempt to keep fascism at bay.

Which is why I write feminist action novels that explore faith, justice, and death. Investigating the nuances of what’s under my rage definitely helps. And so does watching Sydney Rye and her dog, Blue, f**k s**t up knowing that Blue won’t ever die, but the bad guys will. In blood thirsty, vigilante kind of ways.

Writing is not a solution to our current crises, but I find my books cathartic, and you and your loved ones might too. Unless you’re supporters of the 🟠🤡, in which case my books are not for you.

For those of you enragified—a new word I made up that combines enraged and terrified—by what’s coming up in the next year, I suggest my Sydney Rye Mysteries. And maybe some merch that says things like Take no shit, give no fucks—a dictum that might help us get through to November without losing our minds.
