Shaina Richmond


If you want to know why I stopped publishing books, please see this video at my YouTube channel. Long story short: This just wasn't for me. It triggered PTSD from when I was trafficked. It was never my big dream to be an author. I just had a story in my head and I wrote it, published it.

I go by Liz Jones on TikTok and other places. This is my main TikTok account:

Smashwords book reviews by Shaina Richmond

  • Wives in Service on Dec. 26, 2010

    I just finished "The Conjugal Clock" - the first novella in the book - and I absolutely loved it. This author knows how to tell a story. It's a unique, creative concept - the idea of this clock. I'm usually not into such masochism but I thoroughly enjoyed the story and can't wait to read more of her work. She's obviously a very intelligent woman and it shows in her writing.

    Trine Daely has written some truly exquisite poetry. At times it's quite dark, but it's gripping and emotional. I dare you not to feel when you read this. It's open, raw, and beautiful.

    I saw this "brand new" on Smashwords when I logged in and decided to read it immediately, already being a fan of James Pollard. I'm glad I did. This story leaves me with unanswered questions, but in a good way. I think this story is well told. I love the way Mr. Pollard describes the raw emotions of the main character. I would say more but I don't want to spoil it. Very well done.
  • The New Days: The First Son on Dec. 13, 2011

    This is one of the few zombies books I've read, and I have a feeling that all others may pale in comparison. This book has heart. It's engaging, and hard to stop reading. The father / son relationship in the book made me forget that I was actually reading a zombie book. Categorizing this book as a "zombie book" is an insult to the writer. I'm a life long horror fan, and this book far exceeded my expectations.
