Hello from Jass Richards, author of The Blasphemy Tour
« on: September 03, 2017, 07:41:51 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I'm a writer (ex-stand-up and philosopher) and I'm still struggling to get one of my novels 'in front' of its readership - atheists!  (Same problem with my more feminist work.)  So I finally decided to join a few atheist sites...

Here's the blurb:

Two Canadian atheists go on a cross-country speaking tour of American Bible Colleges.  No, seriously.

The Blasphemy Tour — where philosophy meets stand-up.

Available in Kindle, Kobo, as a NookBook, as an iBook, and however you want it at Smashwords.  Also available in print at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indigo, and wherever you buy your books online (and through Ingram).

Good to be with kin here at the Happy Atheist!

Hello, jassrichards. What topics are discussed in your book?

Welcome to the board. I'm curious as to the proper pronunciation of your name. Is it more like a German term for agreement or the animal Jesus rode around on? Or was that a donkey? Is there a difference between a donkey and what I'm talking about... I don't know anymore. One of the side effects of getting old I guess.

Hi, Jass, and welcome.

I assumed it was short for "Jasmine" and mentally pronounced it that way, but with the "s" sound rather than "z" as some do.

Welcome Jass. The Blasphemy tour sounds like a real hoot.

Join the fun here. We are most receptive to comedy when we are not being too seriously involved in politics or the study of astronomical phenomena, etc.  You will soon see that we do not waste an inordinate amount of time hammering the Jesus folk although we are pretty good at it when the occasion arises.

It's looking like jassrichards just stopped by to promote her work.  I'd be happy to be proved wrong about that. :(

I hope you are wrong as well, maybe she is just a very busy person but . . . Time will tell.

When I saw the name "Jass Richards" I'm reminded of some Jazzercise video from the 80's with"Richard Simmoms" and "Sweatin' to the Oldies". ;D


Anyway, welcome Jass! 8)

Well, looks like it was just an advert.

The book actually came out in 2012 and got just about middling reviews, 2.8/5, on the Google rating. Though it got a single Anazon customer review of 5*. Not a cheap paperback at £10-50!

She has been doing tours of some sort with the same title this year.

Obviously a busy lady.

Oh, a group called "Borgore" has been doing a similarly named tour it seems.
