Lightest of Touches
By
Jake Bible

 

A small flutter, barely perceptible. People walk past, unawares.

The lightest of touches, the sensation of breath on skin. Dry, warm, soft. A hand brushes thoughtlessly at a neck.

The eyes watch, careful not to be noticed, careful not to be seen. Careful. The eyes wait.

The man, strong, virile, a perfect specimen, strolls by, his phone in hand, hand to ear, his mouth moving continuously, loud, wanting to be noticed, wanting to be important, playing the roll, pretending.

The eyes, the flutter, the lightest of touches notices him. He will be important.

A busy corner, a gentle shove. Screams.

New Release! Z-Burbia 6: Rocky Mountain Die!

That’s right, folks! The last entry in the Stanford Family saga has been released!

I know, I know, the ebook has been out for three weeks, but, hey, I was on vacation, alright? Cut a hack writer some slack, yo?

However, for you old school folks and collectors, the paperback was just released a couple days ago. So, I’m not really late then, am I?

Shush, you!

Click that sexy cover below and be transported to the magical world of online commerce! BUY THIS BABY!

Cheers!

Zburbia-6-ebook-coverFrom Asheville to Knoxville, Cannibal Road to the Tomb, Jace Stanford and the Whispering Pines survivors have been on the run and fighting for their lives non-stop.
Now, with the plains to their backs, the crew are just steps from their destination: The Stronghold of Boulder, CO. All they have to do is make it through the nightmare that is Denver, CO. While running from the mega-powerful, corporate/political/military entity that is the Consortium. And dealing with the brainwashed killing machines that call themselves the Sisters. Not to mention a crazy mad scientist hell bent on making life really, really hard for everyone.
Oh, and there’s the issue of the horde of zombies that’s close to half a million strong. Yeah, that’s kind of a bummer.
But, hey, if anyone can get his friends and family through a nightmare like this, it’s Jace Stanford, right? Right?
Okay, they’re probably screwed.

Oh, and for those worried the Z-Burbia story is over, it’s not! The Stanfords may be done, but there’s still a certain person named Elsbeth that has so much more to do! Be prepared for Sisters of the Apocalypse some time in 2016!

Writing In Suburbia #7: Taxes Are Death!

That’s right, folks! I delve into the exciting, and deadly, world of business taxes! Get thee to an accountant! Let their black magic be worked upon thee!

I also talk about laundering. Actual laundry, not money. I let my accountant do all my money laundering. Wait…is this thing on?

Oh, and hey, buy some shit:

My Right foot
By
Jake Bible

Run, you moron, run!

Shit… Where’s my right foot? Shit!

Right foot gone. Suit sealing. Good. No loss of air. What’s that beeping? Okay, some loss of air.

Keep running! Less thinking, more moving, dipshit!

Kinda hard without a right foot. Really fucking hard without a right foot. Fast hobbling is my new thing. I’m the interstellar hobbler. Fuck.

What’s that sound? Where’d that come from? Left? Right? Up? Down?

Down! The damned thing is below me! Under the fucking ground!

Keep running (hobbling)!

Ship in ten meters. Seven. Five. Three. One. Hatch!

ROOOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRR!

Shit… There goes the left foot.
