Friday Night Drabble Party!


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
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.


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
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.

A Broken Wheel
Jake Bible


The desk chair had a broken wheel. Three perfectly good ones, but one that refused to do its job and get Vivian from one side of her office to the other.

She was going to be pissed if she died because of a broken wheel.

Vivian strained against the duct tape, but it was duct tape. She pushed her feet down to keep the broken wheel elevated. If she could get to her desk phone then she had a chance.

The office door opened behind her and her chance slipped away. Just like that. All because of a broken wheel.

“Everything is going great for Nicholas Edgwood. He has a job he excels at, he has a new girlfriend, and he has hope for the future. Karma can be a cruel mistress.  When he gets framed for a cyber-crime he did not commit, he must run for his life while his entire world crumbles around him.

He may not be the biggest and baddest guy out there, but he has skills, the kind garnered from a career steeped in computers and code. Now he must leverage these skills to their fullest to stay above ground and breathing. It will take all of his talent, and courage he may not have, just to survive.”
