Damn Gravel
By
Jake Bible

The tires crunched gravel, making Wendell cringe with obvious discomfort.

“What’s your problem?” Horace asked.

“Hate that sound,” Wendell replied. “Like breaking styrofoam or fingers on a chalkboard.”

“What sound?” Horace asked after a couple seconds pause.

“The gravel.”

“The gravel?”

“Yeah, the gravel.”

“It’s just gravel, dude,” Horace scoffed. “It’s not even close to fingernails on a chalkboard.”

Horace shook his head and frowned.

“How do you get anywhere? All these roads are gravel.”

“Different when I’m driving,” Wendell said and glared hard at Horace.

“Whatever, dude,” Horace said. “Just load the guns and forget about the damn gravel.”

Cookbook
By
Jake Bible

“Bone meal…” Marigold stared at the recipe for a few seconds. “What the Hell is bone meal?”

She stepped away from the ancient and cracked cookbook. Or what her grandmother had called a cookbook. As Marigold slowly perused the book over the past few weeks, having received it in the mail after the estate was settled, she began to suspect it was more of a “cookbook”.

“Mugwort?”

Marigold sighed. She’d heard the family rumors.

“Tears of a sullen teenager? Jesus…”

Marigold grabbed her phone. There was a grocer’s phone number in the back of the “cookbook”. Time for a call.

Writing In Suburbia #58: Let’s Talk About Stress, Baby!

The Holiday season is upon us! And with that comes stress.

Now, I don’t tend to get stressed out around Holiday time because I have the soothing balms of Xmas music coupled with making Chex Mix. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have other stresses!

So, in this episode I discuss the stresses I feel as a professional writer and how 2017 hasn’t exactly been a great year. Not only do I chat about my stresses, I also chat about how I cope with all the stress! Solutions! Huzzah!

Have a listen and also have a Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Hey there! I missed y’all last week. It was Black Friday and I spent the weekend buried under a pile of Pillow Pets. They were 75% off. I wanted the koala so I dug deep. Then it all went dark. That’s why I missed last week’s Drabble Party. My bad…

But, hey, I’m back now!

First, for the obligatory sales pitch: BUY MEGA 6!

End obligatory sales pitch.

On with the 100 words!

Enjoy!

No Friends
By
Jake Bible

Five friends went into the woods. Four friends came back.

What they saw, they never spoke about. What they did, they never told. What they experienced, they tried to forget.

Four friends went into the woods. Three friends came back.

What they saw, one of them spoke about. What they did, one of them told. What they experienced, one could never forget.

Three police squads went into the woods. No police squads came back.

Two friends found the third friend. Two friends took the third friend into the woods. No friends came back.

The woods sighed. The woods were happy.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Back for more, is ye? Arrrr, well it does me heart good to see so many familiar faces on such a strange night such as this.

And…scene!

Okay, I’ll admit I have no idea why I wrote the intro to tonight’s post like that. I was channeling some pirate spirit or something.

Oh, wait, I know! because Mega 6: No Man’s Island is out now!

The last of the MEGA books is finished, published, and ready for your sweet, sweet eyeholes to gaze upon and devour! (By the way? Your eyeholes are weird, yo.)

MEGA 6!

The last fight is here!

Team Grendel and the crew of the Beowulf III have met their match. A sadistic maniac has them in her clutches and the last MEGA is on the hunt for revenge. It is a race to see which evil destroys Grendel first! Or will the team of misfits, mad scientists, and ex-Navy SEALs finally prevail and be allowed a chance to live out their lives in peace?

Probably not…

The mystery is over! The enemies have surfaced! Now all Team Grendel and the crew of the Beowulf III have to do is survive one last conflict!

Get ready for the sixth and final installment in the MEGA series!

Hooyah!

Click on all the crazy links and go get that baby!

Now, on with the 100 words of free entertainment!

Enjoy!

Off
By
Jake Bible

In the dim light by the trees stood Halston. A towering figure that appeared diminutive against the backdrop of ancient redwoods.

No one in their right mind would consider Halston diminutive, though.

But, Vicky wasn’t in her right mind, was she?

Vicky was…off. Not that Halston was on. All those blades…

Vicky approached him. We all remember this, yes? She approached him and we gasped. We could see the blades! Halston’s blades!

She did not care. She reached him and they were gone.

Into the redwoods, lost in the ancient shadows. Gone.

Oh, well. Those two were off, anyway.

Cheers!
