Friday Night Drabble Party!
We are back!
Yes, the drabbles have been sporadic lately. It’s summertime, yo!
Speaking of summertime, have you loaded up on your beach reads? Your camping reads? Your books for those long car trips? No?
Well, might I suggest two titles that are perfect for summertime fun?
Both are on sale for $.99 for just a couple more days! Hurry and get them cheap while the cheaping is good!
Drop Team Zero is SpecOps space marines!
In Perpetuity is a mix of Full Metal Jacket and Starship Troopers!
$.99 each, people!

He kept his eyes focused on the stacks, not on the occupied chairs in the corner of the room. He couldn’t look at those. If he did then maybe it hadn’t really been worth it.
But it was worth it.
“Was worth it,” he muttered, ignoring the chairs, ignoring his family’s corpses, ignoring his regret.
Disclaimer: It’s always worth it, right?
