(5%) The March for Our Lives Action Fund: https://tinyurl.com/w2eakbt “In the days after the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, we knew we had to make sure that what happened to our community never happens again. We cannot allow one more person to be killed by senseless gun violence. We cannot allow one more person to experience the pain of losing a loved one. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or a text that never comes. We cannot allow the normalization of gun violence to continue. We must create a safe and compassionate nation for all of us.”
(5%) The Elijah McClain fundraiser: https://tinyurl.com/y7wztpsl “I can’t breathe. I have my ID right here. My name is Elijah McClain. That’s my house. I was just going home. I’m an introvert. I’m just different. That’s all. I’m so sorry. I have no gun. I don’t do that stuff. I don’t do any fighting. Why are you attacking me? I don’t even kill flies! I don’t eat meat! But I don’t judge people, I don’t judge people who do eat meat. Forgive me. All I was trying to do was become better. I will do it. I will do anything. Sacrifice my identity, I’ll do it. You all are phenomenal. You are beautiful and I love you. Try to forgive me. I’m a mood Gemini. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Ow, that really hurt. You are all very strong. Teamwork makes the dream work. Oh, I’m sorry I wasn’t trying to do that. I just can’t breathe correctly.”
"It doesn’t help someone who’s trapped in a day to look to the future, and I realize that it doesn’t help someone trapped in pain to look to the healing."

Jane Conquest’s advice book on reading and writing “Why Clichés” is directed at a much broader audience than just readers and writers. Through Conquest’s comedic “examples” of poorly-written work–based off of real amateur content she observed during her time being “Internet famous” on a website for readers and writers–“Why Clichés” offers a plethora of ideas on how to improve one’s reading and writing skills. But that’s not all… “Why Clichés” has memes, self-learned etiquette for both traditional and online authoring, and the lifelong experience of a very unique–and very obsessed–perspective on the modern world of literature.
In which a boy meets the purple-haired girl of his dreams, but soon finds their love to be anything but dreamy.
"XO" is the fourth novel I completed (and my longest at about 79,000 words). I wrote it between July 2017 and June 2018. It's never taken me so long to complete a book, and I'm still editing it! I consider it to be my first "epic", and I do intend to publish it, but for now the FULL version is posted for FREE here on janeconquest.com! Click on the cover to read, and enjoy!
In the wake of a nuclear war, North America has been reduced to a desert wasteland, and orderly systems have disintegrated. Sparse towns and cities are separated by miles of barren terrain populated by nocturnal Hungries – diseased humans with cannibalistic rage brought on by a drug being created and distributed illegally.
When Esmeralda Watson, a seventeen-year-old with a strange past and a dark set of skills, is approached with an offer she can't refuse, she sets off on a quest far bigger than anything she could have ever imagined.
Jack Ivory, the twenty-year-old task agent assigned to protect the remaining population, has his curiosity piqued when he discovers the infamous Thorn Killer walking the streets of his investigative town.
Jack and Esmeralda set off together on a fantastic journey of love, loss, deception, and blood.
"Complex" is the third novel I completed (my second novel, "See Her", can be found under the "Published Novels" page of this website, click here to go to it), and I wrote all 55,000 words in 21 days. During this time, I was the most depressed I have ever been in my life, and yet, somehow, this is easily the least-dark book I'd written up to that point. I'm proud of it, and I do intend to publish it eventually, but for now, click on the cover to read the FULL version, posted for FREE here on janeconquest.com. Enjoy!

"Two" is the first novel I had ever completed (well, not the first, but the first two were so bad, we don't talk about them), and I wrote it between January and April of 2016. It's super heavy/dark and, unlike all of my other books, I have no intention of publishing it anytime soon. Click on the cover to read the FULL version of Two for FREE, which will stay posted to janeconquest.com indefinitely.
