Well, I think it’s high time you got on board and let your funny flag fly!!! Below are some personal picks, neat websites to visit and a small highlight on YA author, Gina Damico.

Humorist Highlight: Gina Damico
Super funny with a side of violence (here and there), Gina Damico has taken her love of “the weird” and turned it into some seriously, funny & outrageous literature. Check out her CROAK trilogy (#1 Croak, #2 Scorch, and #3 Rogue) or one of her standalone novels (Hellhole, Wax, Waste of Space) for a rollicking good time. More info about Gina, click here.
Enjoy the rest of April and never forget that, “Laughter is the best medicine. And it is…after you’ve received real medicine.” – Jim Gaffigan
