Friday Night Drabble Party!

Happy Friday to you all!

What a glorious Friday it is! Do you know why it is so glorious? Because Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter is here!

roak-ebook-coverThere are thousands of bounty hunters across the galaxy. Solid professionals that take jobs based on the credits the bounties afford. They follow the letter of the law so they can maximize those credits.
Licensed, bonded, legal.
Then there’s Roak.
Deadly, unstoppable, invisible.
No criminal or military records. No files or folders with his name on them. No cybernetic implants to track. No proof he even exists except for a reputation for getting the job done. Roak is the bounty hunter called when someone is looking for the opposite of licensed, bonded, legal.
Now someone has ignored his reputation and made a very big mistake.
Double-crossed and left to die, Roak survives and sets out to exact vengeance and get paid what he is owed.
But he’s not unreasonable.
While his fee may have just gone up, the bloody, brutal revenge is on the house.

Ain’t that just the coolest? The answer is yes.

Go get that puppy! DO IT!

Now, on with our 100 words of micro-fiction!

Enjoy!

Ready For Whatever
By
Jake Bible

The artery sprayed blue.

Not red, but blue.

Vicky hadn’t expected that.

In less than a second, the wall was completely coated, the dozen spurted splatters joined into a dripping, blurred mural of violence.

Knife gripped tight, Vicky kicked the dead man away from her and spun to meet the other attackers.

No one was there. Her scanner had counted four. But the corridor was empty.

“What are you?” she whispered at the corpse as she slid her backup blade from her boot.

The empty airlock loomed before her. She took a deep breath and stepped through, ready for whatever.

Cheers!

  1. New guy here, and not sure if this is what is supposed to happen, but I’d like to try my hand at Drabble.

    Cat and Dog

    By Dan Delgado

    The dog’s agitated bark was followed by a yelp, and then silence.

    Confident the tranquilizer dart had done it’s job, the intruder slipped out of the shadows to approach the house. She strode with purpose and feline fluidity.

    Less than ten feet from her chosen point of ingress the hall light went on, followed by the bathroom light. The aging homeowner lifted the toilet seat and let fly a sputtering stream. On a whim he glanced out the window into the darkened yard, but saw nothing.

    “Damn his swollen prostate,” the burglar whispered, as she crept back over the fence.

  2. Debbe Van Ness (Sascha's mom)

    Hi, Jake. I have a question. Suggestions for gifts for a 16-year-old girl who is an avid reader of sci fi, Stephen King being a favorite author. Sascha (yep) suggested your books, perhaps beginning with Z-Burbia. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    • Debbe! Great to hear from you!
      If she likes scifi then I’d recommend my Reign of Four books. Very Game of Thrones in space. If she’s into more action-adventure then the Salvage Merc One series is fun. Same with Drop Team Zero and Roak. But, if she likes a little zombie horror mixed in then Dead Mech is the way to go. Hope those suggestions help!

      Cheers,
      Jake

  3. Really like your Mega books! Any chance you might know when the audio book for number to will be out. BTW, I’m old, so I sometimes have problems with things like what MIFA stand for. so what does it stand for?😮
    Thanks
    Ree

    • Hi Ree!
      Thanks for the praise. The Mega books have been a blast to write. The audiobook for #5 will probably not come out until mid-2017 due to production schedules. As for MIFA, I honestly do not know what that is. Can you give me some context? I’m not sure I remember ever using that term. Thanks!

      Cheers,
      Jake

  4. Regarding my last post, I meant book number five
    Thanks again
