And here we are again. These Fridays sure do happen regularly. You can’t stop ’em!
This Friday, I have a surprise for y’all!
The book is coming soon, but for now you may gaze upon the wonder that is Infinite Mayhem!
The thing is, everyone that is part of the Jake Bible Fiction Facebook Group saw this cover yesterday. YESTERDAY! If you want cover reveals and special announcements before anyone else then I suggest you join the Facebook Group right now. RIGHT NOW!
And, how about a drabble?
The red-faced man glanced down at the resume, quite confused.
“You’re…applying now?” the red-faced man asked.
“Yes,” the applicant replied. “Is there a problem?”
“No, no, it’s just…” The red-faced man searched for the words. “Most of our positions are filled after someone comes here…involuntarily.”
“I wanted to get ahead of the queue. I’m well qualified.”
“Oh, I see that. But, since you are not deceased, we cannot hire you.”
“How unfortunate. You’ll keep my resume on file?”
“Of course. Hell always needs qualified applicants to fill our demon quota.”
“I appreciate it.”

Yo! What’s up, Party People? You ready for some drabbletastic delights? Yeah, you are!
Of course, before we get to the 100 Words of Awesome, we must first explore all the goodness that has been delivered to the internet this week by yours truly. By me, in case the yours truly thing doesn’t translate to your culture/generation/species/etc.
And I also uploaded a new video to my YouTube Writing Advice series. Checking that out is something else you should do. Right now. Go check it out. Do it. You wanna, you know it. Do it. Come on.
As always, I gotta shill me some Max Rage: Intergalactic Badass! If you haven’t read it then get on that! If you have read it then please leave a review! REVIEW!
Now, on with the drabble!
Not For Me
Hailey studied the ancient inscription, staring at it for hours before finally uncurling her legs from under her to stand. The numbness that spread in her limbs threatened to topple her into the dirt and musky flowers that surrounded the broken idol.
“Miss?” Algernon asked. “Have you found what you seek?”
Hailey smiled a sad, knowing smile at her assistant.
“I did, Al,” Hailey said. “But what I found is not for me.”
Hailey picked up her bag, shooing Algernon’s hands away from the canvas sack, and hiked back into the jungle to reverse the trek she’d spent months taking.

What else? Hmmm, oh, yes, tonight’s drabble!
“Huh? Hand me that saw.”
“Mungo Jerry. That’s the guy that sang Summertime.”
“Pretty sure Summertime was from Porgy and Bess. Hand me the saw, dude.”
“Here. Porgy and Bess? What the hell is that?”
“Cute. Need that length of chain there, too. No. Yeah, that one.”
“That’s a lot of blood.”
“Yeah, my bad.”
“In The Summertime! That’s the name. Is the Gershwin one that Janice Joplin song, too?”
“Yeah. What’s the other one? Screwdriver.”
“Here. You know. Some sixties song where he goes da doo dah dah a bunch.”
“Right. I like that one.”

Happy Friday The 13th!
Be sure to hug your favorite homicidal maniac!
Speaking of homicidal maniacs…
I have two new releases this week!
The first is the fourth Roak novel- Paradox Slaughter! This may be my favorite in the series so far. Check it out!
The second book out is the standalone sequel to Black Box Inc.- Blood Ghast Blues! This is a standalone, so if you haven’t read the first one, no worries. You’ll totally be able to hop in right here. GO GET IT!
Also, for those of you that are podcast inclined, there’s a new episode of Writing In Suburbia out!
Now, on with the drabble!
Hand to throat, knee on chest; the man held the creature down as the thing struggled underneath.
“You think you could kill them all and I’d never find you?” the man snarled. “Tracked you for ages.” The man squeezed harder. “Ages. Now you will pay for what–.”
The man’s eyes went wide as the bony tip of the creature’s tail exploded from the middle of the man’s chest.
Hand to throat relaxed, knee to chest fell away; the man collapsed onto his side, dead.
“How’d you think I killed ’em all, bitch?” the creature spat, wiping blood from its tail.
Disclaimer: All the stuffs!
This week I chat about a TON of stuff. From whether or not I will become an indie publisher to my dropping out of ConCarolinas. Plus, someone is demolishing the trailer behind my house and one of my dogs goes NUTS over that!
You don’t want to miss this episode.
