A Small Woman
By
Jake Bible

“Mommy!”

Tera sprinted across the grass, her feet slipping in the damp dew of the early morning. Her lungs burned and her calves had begun to cramp, but she didn’t dare slow.

“Mommy!”

Her only thoughts were to get to her daughter before that hatch closed. As if she could do anything against the machine that had come for the children. As if a small woman, petite since birth, could fight off the empire and take back the thing most precious to her in the world.

“Mommy!”

Tera screamed as the armored truck pulled away, spitting gravel in her face.

Cheers!

Hard Philosophy
By
Jake Bible

A punch to the head was better than a kick to the balls.

It was a philosophy I’d lived by for most of my life. Hard to fault the logic in it.

Unless the punch to the head is done by a seven-foot tall, monster of a man. Fists like bowling balls. Heavy and solid. Solid enough to knock me halfway across the room and want to cry for my mommy.

Of course, my loaded pistol was better than his fist. Hard philosophy to learn for a big guy like that. I had no problem teaching it to him.

Writing In Suburbia #50: Keep On, Keepin’ On…

Welcome back to another episode of Writing In Suburbia. Episode #50! Woo Hoo!

In this episode I talk about how to stay motivated in the face of this hell that our country and world has become. I go into great detail, and rant quite a bit, about how hard it is to keep writing escapist fiction. I also talk about how escapist fiction is what folks are looking for.

Did I mention the rant?

Enjoy the episode.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Time again for 100 words of pure AWESOME!

But, before we dive into the micro-fiction, I need a little help.

Stone Cold Bastards is on the “Can’t Wait” Books of 2017 list on Goodreads. It’s hovering around #105. All it needs is a few more votes and it’ll break the Top 100 and get to the first page. This is a big deal, y’all. Don’t have a Goodreads account? Now’s the time to create one. In fact, if you have an Amazon account you should be able to use that. Makes signing up and logging in simple. CLICK HERE GO VOTE FOR THE BASTARDS!

Now, on with the Drabble!

Enjoy!

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.”
