New Quirky Novel about Getting Fired

This Will Not Look Good on my Resume, a new book of quirky comic fiction by Canadian Jass Richards, is half novel, half short story collection, each chapter telling the tale of yet another job from which Brett, protagonist-with-an-attitude, gets fired. From being a disc jockey, a nanny, a teacher, a reporter, a recreation director (at—wait for it—an old age home), an office temp, a waitress, a crisis hotline operator, a psych halfway house counsellor….

“Everyone’s been fired at least once in their life (or conveniently quit just before they got fired). And if not, well, they’re just not trying very hard,” Richards says with a wry grin. “And we all think of brilliant and immature 'shoulda saids' and 'shoulda dones' for weeks after. (Okay, years.)” More wry grins can be found at the author’s website, www.jassrichards.com.

Moriah Jovan, author of The Proviso, says “It made me snort root beer out my nose!” and Jennifer Colt, author of The Hellraiser of the Hollywood Hills, calls it “darkly humorous.”

The author has already completed a second book, a comic novel titled Missing the Arteries, which she intends to enter in the upcoming Amazon Breakthrough contest. She is hard at work on its sequel, The Blasphemy Tour.

This Will Not Look Good on my Resume is available now in print at Amazon ($9.99 USD) and as an ebook in Kindle and at Smashwords ($2.99 USD). The Smashwords site enables interested readers to take a free dip into this new release.
