Before I post the next chapter of Trip on This, I want to talk about the novel in general a little bit. I wrote it sixteen years ago, inspired by the time I lived in the Bay Area. Around the same time, I read an article about the killing of women and girls in Juarez that everyone seemed to be ignoring. The more I read, the more horrified I became, and it plays a part in this novel as well.
I really like this novel because the protagonist is unlike any other I’ve written. She’s tough as nails and no-nonsense, rarely bothering with introspection. She’s a doer, not a thinker, which is the exact opposite of me.
I have a special fondness in my heart for her, and I wrote a sequel novel about her a few months ago. Once I’m done with Trip on This, I’ll start posting chapters from the sequel (once I edit it, of course!). Here’s the prologue to Trip on This, here’s chapter one, and here’s chapter two. And now, on to chapter three which will be posted at the stroke of midnight! Let’s boogie!
Here’s the whole song since the video above cuts off most abruptly at the end.
