All In The Hopes
By
Jake Bible

The swing arm creaked, its hinges not having been used in close to a decade, as Lester pulled the mic close to his lips.

“This is Lester Gomez,” he said, his voice shaky and unsure. “I’m hoping someone, anyone is out there to hear me. It’s been fifteen years since the event. Fifteen years. I finally got this transmitter station up and going. I’m using solar, wind, even a pedal bike, to power it. All in the hopes…”

He trailed off, his voice choked with emotion.

“All in the hopes I’m not the last person left alive on this planet.”

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Howdy!

Here we are again. It’s Friday. Apparently we’re getting some snow tonight. I’ll believe it when I see it. Part of moving to the mountains was because of snowy winters. Global warming took care of that! Thanks, Obama! It snowed!

Anyhoo, it’s time to get toasty and kick back for some 100 word goodness.

But, and you knew it was coming, time for a little shilling first!

Stone Cold Bastards is up for pre-order! Want to see the cover? Then click away and be transported to a magical blog post where I reveal the cover to this awesome new novel! CLICK!

Pretty awesome, right? Yeah, you’ll want to pre-order this baby. Be one of the cool kids that got in on the ground floor!

And now, on with the Drabble!

Thumb Drive
By
Jake Bible

The thumb drive sat on my desk for six days before I had the courage to plug it into the USB port on my computer. I should have waited six hundred days.

The files were filled with horrors. Horrors that I couldn’t imagine.

Documents, photographs, maps, sound recordings.

Video.

All of it was there on my Mac’s desktop. Just sitting there, the evidence that countless generations had hungered for. I had it.

But, for how long?

The following day the black sedans began to trail me. The men with earpieces on the street corners came next.

I haven’t stopped running.

Too Perfect
By
Jake Bible

His disguise had been too perfect.

He’d slid in through the back to steal leftovers from the kitchen before the head chef threw them into the incinerator. A month’s worth of food, destined to be burnt to dust at the end of the night.

When his chance came, he took it.

Then it all fell apart.

Trays of illicit hors d’oeuvres in hand, he was suddenly shoved into the ballroom, an angry red face yelling for him to stop standing there and get back to work. He’d been mistaken for a server because of his disguise.

His damned, perfect disguise.

Ten
By
Jake Bible

Ten.

It was a number she lived by.

Ten.

A number she worked by.

Ten.

A number one day she expected to die by.

Ten.

Nine in the magazine, one in the chamber.

Problem was, she needed eleven. Twelve, if she wanted to leave the slimmest margins for error. There was always error.

Like now.

She’d been told six men would accompany Gordon. Six, not eleven. Six would leave four for error. A wide margin.

No margin left with eleven.

Oh, well. That’s why God gave her two hands with ten fingers.

Ten.

They’d have to make up the difference.

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!
