Need to hide something from the fae?
Got a tricky trans-dimensional delivery to make?
Need a big ball of magic that can destroy the world?
Call Black Box Inc.

The world as we know it is gone. Since the “extradimensional happening,” every creature, monster, and fairy tale goblin has turned Asheville, North Carolina, into their personal playground. An uneasy truce exists between the races, but Chase Lawter’s unique ability puts him squarely in the crosshairs of treachery, feuds, and monsters looking to make a buck on black market goods. Chase is the only known being who can pull material from between dimensions and shape it into whatever he likes—like boxes. Like boxes in which folks hide smoking guns and severed heads. Only Chase can hide the boxes, and only Chase can recover them from the Dim. All for a tidy sum, of course.

His crack team—a yeti, a zombie, and a fae-trained assassin—have his back. What could possibly go wrong?

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Hello there!

Another Day
By
Jake Bible

 

They leapt into the air, kicking their back legs out as they curled their fore legs in, their hairy chins pointed down then up, down then up.

The creatures hopped from rock to rock, never slowing, never looking like they even knew what hesitation was. Their exuberance for life was evident by their loud bleats and constant movement.

The day wore on and their energy finally began to flag. They nodded to each other and headed for home, ready for a hearty dinner and nighttime nuzzles. It had been a glorious time.

Jut another day in the lives of weregoats.

New Novel! New Genre! New Series!

Howdy, y’all!

So, some of you may have heard I have a new novel out! And, of course, I forgot to post about it on the website because, hey, why would I keep this crucial bit of business updated, right? Le sigh…

Now, you might think, so what? I always have a new novel out. Which is pretty much true. I write like a bat out of hell. Except, that this time I’m writing in a whole new genre. And I don’t mean just a new genre for me, but a genre that is fairly new on the scene.

LitRPG!

What is LitRPG? It stands for “Literature Role Playing Game”. Basically, the character, or characters, are sucked into, transported, cursed, become part of the actual game they are playing. If you want to go old school then think of Tron. One second in the real world, next second in the virtual world. Or that old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon  where they get transported by magic into the fantasy world they are playing in. Whatever the premise is, the point is the game becomes real!

My latest novel, EverRealm, will be part of a series of LitRPG novels, each one set in a different gaming environment- epic fantasy, cyberpunk, urban fantasy, western, Lovecraftian, space opera, etc.

So, hop on board this crazy new genre train and check out EverRealm! You will not be disappointed!

In the 23rd century, the world is at an end, and a group of gaming and programming friends decide that their only way to survive is to discard their bodies and send their minds into the quantum matrix of a virtual gaming world. They have created the Domains and there they plan to reside forever.

Except, the nightmares of reality have followed them into their new quantum dimension and those nightmares threaten to destroy it all!

Now it is up to one of them to help navigate the quantum platform known as EverRealm, a fantasy MMORPG of epic proportions, in order to complete a quest he neither wants to complete nor knows how. With the help of his friends, and a lot of luck, he will have to face trials and tribulations like he’s never faced as a player! Because now it is no longer a matter of Game Over, but of life or death!

Can he survive it all and come out a winner? The only way he’ll know is if he plays the game to the bitter end!

On Me
By
Jake Bible

A thrust of the blade and the craggy troll fell. It clutched at its belly, its knees sinking a foot deep in the muck and mire that made up the long neglected lane.

“Why ya done that to me, pally?” the troll asked. “I weren’t gonna harm ya.”

The boy stood there, troll blood dripping from the blade in huge, chunky globs. He didn’t reply. He didn’t move. Only stood there and waited.

The troll nodded. “Tis my lane to protect, but ya had all rights to pass. I stopped ya. My death is on me.”

The boy nodded. “Aye.”
