An alternate history of the USA: 

Alice X tells the gripping story of a disadvantaged girl struggling to have a better life in a nation that turns a blind eye to its ugly past. 

A Note from Jaid:  I wrote this book under my birth name to keep it distinct from my other work. Alice X, unlike the books I write as Jaid Black, is appropriate for most tweens on up. Because there is some cursing, as well as a passage that describes the female anatomy, I advise parents to read the e-book to decide if it's appropriate for their child. 

almost a relief when Amy was shipped off to boarding school, permanently forcing the two girls apart. Fifteen years later, Amy’s tragic death reunites Trina with her past…and with Daniel.


never miss a new release !

The wealthy and influential Hunter family never thought much of Trina Pittman. Born on the wrong side of the tracks, Trina wasn’t considered a worthy choice as a friend for their daughter Amy.

02/17/17: Nearly all of my titles went out of print when Ellora's Cave closed down on 1/1/17. I've been weighing the pros and cons of what to do with my backlist and I finally decided—albeit with serious misgivings—to put them in the last place I ever thought I would: Amazon. They will likely be buried there, but those titles have already seen the apex of their sales so I'm not overly concerned about it. As to future books, I'm still working that out. I've had a few offers, but I'm still feeling burnt out (at least where erotic romance is concerned) so I'm putting that issue into the things-to-decide-later category :-) 

At any rate, I will list the books available for sale at Amazon here on this page as they become available so check back often if you have been waiting to catch up on my backlist. Hopefully most of them will be republished over the course of the next month. Cheers, Tina/Jaid
