Ages
By

The body was just too darn big to fit inside the box.

Jasper went to find the old axe he’d been meaning to sharpen for ages. Ages. He stared at the dull and rusted blade, sighed, then got to work.

Two hours. It took two hours for Jasper to get the body down to a manageable size so he could shut the box’s lid. He made sure the latch closed properly and affixed a nice, solid padlock.

Jasper was about to return the axe when the knocking from inside the box began.

It was going to be a long night.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Hello there!

I’m back from Dragon*Con and ready to get my Drabble on!

Man, my week has been filled with proofing manuscripts and prepping for the next novel which I start on Monday. Who’s ready for Mega 6? This guy!

Anyhoo, click on some of the links that hang out on this website and buy some shit, people. Seriously. I got a mortgage to pay and a kid in college. This income thing is no joke. CLICK!

Now, on with the 100 words of fantastical abandonment!

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.

A Contest For All!

For those in the know (that means folks on my mailing list), you know I have an ongoing contest. Not sure what it is? Here ya go!

So, what does this mean? Well, through the rest of the month I’m adding a second contest for anyone that writes an Amazon review! If you write a review anytime from now until August 31st, and email me a link to it (jakebiblefiction at gmail dot com), then you are entered to win a signed paperback or free audiobook or your name as a character in one of my upcoming novels!

This is a second contest, folks. Not an add-on. If you’re eligible for both then you can win TWICE! Hell, you could win thrice! For every review you write, and send me a link to, you get an entry into the extra contest!

Bam!

To make it easy, click the banner pick below and you’ll be able to go to the list of my novels on Amazon. Review one (Nebula Risen, Mech Corps, and Stone Cold Bastards could use some love), send me the link, and you’re good to know!

Thanks, y’all!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Happy Friday, y’all!

I did not post a drabble last week due to some intense editing on my novel, Black Box, Inc. Y’all are gonna love this one when it comes out. Urban fantasy with a Jake Bible spin. But, I’ll be announcing that later down the line. Stay tuned!

For tonight, though, I give you a bit of horror. I haven’t been in the horror mood much lately. Concentrating on scifi and fantasy and whatnot. So, it was fun to delve into the darker corners and see what bloody morsel I could pull out of my head.

Enjoy!

Selfie Smile
By
Jake Bible

Lucy scrolled through the pictures on her phone again and again, growing more nauseous with each viewing of the despicable acts she saw, but she couldn’t pull her eyes away.

All that blood. So much blood.

The bodies were mutilated beyond recognition. Skin flayed open and spread out. Limbs nearly hacked off. The brutality was almost more than she could comprehend.

But, obviously, not more than she could perpetrate. Because in each picture, with a selfie smile plastered to her face, there she was. Face coated in gore, machete prominently displayed.

“How drunk did I get last night?” she muttered.

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.”
