Editorial Reviews

Erin X
This novelette is a lot of fun. I like Jack. I like the world that was painted through Jack's eyes. Jack even reminded me, in the nicest possible way, how wonderful it is to no longer be guided by a teenage brain.

LA Tripp should take a bow for 'All Jacked Up' because making light of serous stuff without offending is a form of true goodness in literature. This novelette is both clever and funny.

Spend a dollar and take this quick read to bed with you. Let Jack share his journe

Poor Jack. Good things happen and bad follows like a Siamese twin. For some reason life keeps pulling the rug from under Jack and though the story is short and entertaining, I sure would like to know what the poor soul did in his past life to cause him such drama in the present. I really enjoyed the story and stood opened mouth at its ending.
K Jackson
It was my pleasure to get a copy of this book pre-release. Not knowing quite what to expect from this 20,000 word story I was delighted, amused and intrigued. The story is cleverly written, which let's you as the reader be led by the hand through Jack's life. Although, I did not say the leading was gentle. I enjoyed it and can't wait to see what's next for Jack.

All Jacked Up! Definately got All Jacked Up reading this story by Author L.A. Tripp. I found it to be very humorous, wild and at the edge of your seat good. Witty and Clever. The Characters are well portrayed, well incorporated and well likeable, even when your supposed to dislike.
Not giving anything away, I will say that the most favorite parts and most well done parts of this book are the dream scenes, HIL-LAR-IOUS. L.A. Tripp, You have a gold mine on your hands.

Meet the Author

L.A. Tripp has written Woe to the Rich!, his debut novel, and it's first sequel, Monica.

Woe to the Rich! is about flipping society as we know it, on it's head. The wealthy lose their wealth and the broke gain it. Along with romance and sex sprinkled within, this book has received rave reviews.

Monica focuses on a timeline from when Woe finishes and follows one of Woe's characters through about a week of her life, through her own eyes. The reader gets the joy of experiencing a pregnancy, finding a lost love, a big move, and all of the emotional ups and downs that such a roller coaster will bring.

The next book due out is The Dating Doctor Diaries, which chronicles Tripp's career as a dating and seduction coach.

He's also working on a new series that's completely different from his previous works. He won't tell us what it's about, other than people will be able to relate to it and will be very comical!

He has written several articles for and has been featured in the local magazine News4U.

Tripp resides just out of reach of the Bible Belt, with his wife and two kids (and occasionally a pet balloon)!
