My name is Jessica Yinka Thomas, and like many superheroes, I live a double life...
By day, I'm a mild-mannered professor.
By night, I'm a social justice novelist.
I need your help to publish my second novel, How Not to Make Friends, the sequel to the critically-acclaimed, How Not to Save the World!
I've spent the last 10 years traveling all over the world and writing How Not to Make Friends. Now, I'm finally ready to share it (almost)!
Each reward level is named after a language representing one of the locations in Remi's latest adventure, from advance copies to naming a character.
A great gift for your favorite reader, advance review copies will be available in time for the holidays!

“Remi is one of the most exciting & cosmopolitan action figures in contemporary American fiction.” – John L. Jackson Jr., author of Racial Paranoia

You are going to love the sequel, How Not to Make Friends!
How Not To Make Friends is a fast-paced social justice novel set in a world of high culture, high fashion and high-tech gadgetry.
Three friends, Remi, Izi and Alex crisscross the globe, from Rio to Nairobi to Paris, building an international network of supporters, dedicated to ending human trafficking.
In the process, they work to bring down a greedy corporation and elude a shadowy network bent on world domination.
I'm still putting the final touches on How Not to Make Friends but you can get a sneak peak at their adventures from How Not to Save the World.
