Making up sh*t since 1975


“In her rambunctious debut, Penni Jones has created a one-of-a-kind character –a horny and heartfelt heroine itching to reclaim her life in a world gone mad.  This is original, breezy, and compelling storytelling.” MARK HASKELL SMITH, author of  MoistDeliciousSaltyBaked, and Raw: A Love Story

“Penni Jones is a genius. Her voice is completely unique and inspiring. Read this book and tuck it in your heart.” ARIEL GORE, award-winning author of Atlas of the Human HeartThe Mother Trip, and The Traveling Death and Resurrection Show

“On the Bricks is a fun twist on the just out of prison subgenre and Penni Jones has a bright future writing characters with dark ones.” JEDIDIAH AYRES, author of Peckerwood

“I liked the story but didn’t care for the language.” MY MOM

“Not the ‘feel good’ novel of the year, but well-written, gritty, and with fascinating characters that will nonetheless draw you into their seedy lives. On the Bricks is an excellent debut effort from Ms. Jones and one I highly recommend. ” NEIL A. WHITE for Readers’ Favorite
