First, shout out and all the hugs to the NC peeps out east that are still recovering from Hurricane Florence. We were spared in the mountains, but y’all down in the lowlands got smacked hard. All the good mojo shall be yours!
Alright, time to get down to business.
New videos in my writing advice YouTube series are dropping every Monday from here until December. Check them out! And be sure to subscribe, y’all. That’s how I know you love me. LOVE ME!
Not much else new going on. Be sure and join the Jake Bible Fiction Facebook Group. I’ll be posting there more than on the Jake Bible’s Wasteland page. A cool, fun community is building and we get to chat about all kinds of stuff. Go and become a part of the fun!
Oh, and Holiday season will be upon us very soon! You’re going to want to buy some autographed novels for the ones you love. Nothing says love like giant mechs and galactic bounty hunters! Get your orders in now in case I run out of a title and need to re-order!
Okey dokey, that’s it for the shilling! Time to get your drabble on!
“Right, but I don’t want to put a ton of work into the project if no one is going to notice, Ed.”
“Hey, I get it, I do, but that’s what they’re looking for. Initiative. They want to know that you can get the job done before they start writing that big story.”
“There are no buts here, my friend. You want to go down in history as the greatest serial killer of all time? Then you have to be the greatest serial killer of all time. To do that, you have to start actually killing people.”

I don’t expect September to say hello back because September is a month and months don’t talk. Except for June. I swear, you just can’t get June to shut up. Jeez…
HEY! GUESS WHAT????
Max Rage: Intergalactic Badass! is now in audiobook! The folks at Tantor Audio have done an AMAZING job with this production. Y’all need to check this out. Seriously.
Oh, and lest we forget (which is punishable by death in Singapore and Arizona) that Infinite Mayhem is out now too! Audiobook will be available probably just after Thanksgiving (that’s early December for you non-Yanks). GO GET SOME ROAK!
What else? Oh, yes, a drabble!
Putting On Airs
“Those are sharks.”
“How can you say that? Dolphins don’t circle like that. They also have WAY different dorsal fins.”
“Dorsal fins. Oh, look who’s putting on airs. Dorsal fins…”
“That’s what they’re called. And dolphins’ dorsal fins flop over at the top.”
“Yes, they aren’t rigid like sharks.”
“Well, look at that one. Bit floppy there.”
“It’s not floppy, it’s bent. Probably an old injury.”
“Should have gone to the vet.”
“Did you just say that a shark should have gone to the vet?”
“No, I said that dolphin should have gone to the vet.”

We meet again!
Welcome back to another Friday Night Drabble Party, y’all. Thanks for stopping by. Got some good stuffs for ya this week!
First, Max Rage: Intergalactic Badass! is on sale for $.99! Click the pic below and go get my satirical, humorous take on the macho tough guy scifi genre!
And, for those of you that dig videos filled with writing advice, I have a new episode out in my YouTube series. Have a looksee!
Oh, and I now have a Facebook Group set up! It’s a closed group, so you have to ask to join. This way FB can’t throttle my posts and fans/readers can see all the great announcements. Go ask to join so you can see what’s going on with Jake Bible Fiction!
Now, on with tonight’s drabble!
Work With That
“Dance, little imp! DANCE!” the Man in the Hood shouted at the creature trapped within the circle of salt.
“Not an imp,” the creature muttered under its breath as it began to hop back and forth from one foot to the other. “I’m a bugbear.”
The Man in the Hood raised a silver staff above his head, but paused halfway. “Say what now?”
“What?” the creature asked.
“You’re not an imp?”
“No, I’m a bugbear. Like a hobgoblin. I eat kids.”
“I need an imp.”
“You called a bugbear.”
“Shit… Eat kids, huh?”
“I can probably work with that.”

And the Lord said, “Let there be an audiobook of Four Weeks To Finished!”
And there was. And it was narrated by me!
That’s right, folks, I narrated Four Weeks To Finished and now it is available for your precious earholes to consume. Y’all should get to the clicking of the pic below and bask in the writing wisdom I have bestowed upon the masses. BASK!
Now, enjoy the drabble goodness!
To Your Left
“The peg to your left. Your left. To your left, Carl. YOUR LEFT!”
“Is that to your left?”
“No. This is my…right?”
“Yes, Carl, that’s your right. Which would make that peg the…?”
“The wrong peg! It’s the wrong peg, Carl! What happens if you pull out the wrong peg?”
“The temple collapses.”
“And what happens when the temple collapses?”
“If we’re lucky, yes, but what really happens is the ruins fill with swamp water and we drown.”
“I’d rather be crushed.”
“Wouldn’t we all.”
“So this peg?”
“No, Carl! To your left!”
One more week down! Getting closer to the End of Days, folks!
What? Oh, I’m kidding. How would I know when the End of Days is? I mean, it’s not like having the last name of Bible puts me in a special club or anything. I’m not building a bunker for my family in the mountains so it’s ready before January 18th, 2023. Why would I do something so very specific? Y’all are paranoid.
Hey! Who wants a drabble? You do!
Check out the drabble below and if you like what you read and want to support the author that wrote such a fine little nugget of fiction (me) then please click around the website for a bit. Also, review a book! Preferably one of mine, but you do you.
Oh, and check out my interview on the Unstructured podcast. You’ll dig it.
“Seven doors? There should be only two doors,” Dale stated.
“What?” the devil asked. “No, seven is our usual number.”
“Yeah, but The Lady and the Tiger,” Dale replied.
“What tiger? We don’t have tigers down here,” the devil said, annoyed.
“No, it’s a story,” Dale insisted, “with two doors.”
“Yeah, well, your story has seven doors. Pick one,” the devil snapped.
“I’m going to ignore five of the doors and just use those two,” Dale said.
“You realize it’s shit like this that got you down here in the first place, right?” the devil asked and rolled his eyes.
