The 3rd Roak book is out now!
Get to the buying, the reading, and the reviewing! Tell your friends! Spread the word!
Razer Station is one of the most notorious stations in the galaxy. Criminals, con artists, freaks, rebels, junkies, and smugglers inhabit the space station that floats at the outer edge of civilization.
It’s Roak’s kind of place.
But, Roak isn’t on Razer for a little R&R; he’s there on a job.
For Roak, it should be an easy job- track down an old tech that has been targeted by several corporations and deliver the tech to the corporations.
Except Razer Station is never that accommodating and Roak’s easy job quickly turns into a nightmare battle for survival and a race across the station before it all goes up in flames.
The third chapter in the Roak saga continues with more grit, more grime, and more bodies than ever. Roak is pissed and gunning for anyone and everyone that dares get in his way!
Friday is here and we shall celebrate with 100 words of fantastical awesomeness!
See all those links everywhere on this page? click one of them. Buy some shit. Keep my kid in college. I’m not joking. Do it. DO IT! DOOOOOO EEEEEET!
Or you can click on this because I’m in it and it’s awesome.
Now, on with the Drabble!
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.
Disclaimer: Always keep the blade ready!
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!
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.
