All In The Hopes
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.”
Oh, it’s almost here, y’all!
But, until the novel is available on Amazon, how about I give you a sneak peek at the cover?

After an opportunistic heist gone wrong, a squad of Galactic Fleet Marines set down on a remote planet hoping to repair their badly damaged ship and resupply quickly so they can be on their way to spend their new riches.
Finding the supply outpost occupied by less than normal residents, the Marines are soon fighting for their lives against a deadly force unlike any they’ve seen on the battlefield. It’ll take all their training and skills to get out alive, let alone in one piece.
How’s that for awesome?
Here we are again. It’s Friday. Apparently we’re getting some snow tonight.
I’ll believe it when I see it. Part of moving to the mountains was because of snowy winters. Global warming took care of that! Thanks, Obama! It snowed!

And now, on with the Drabble!
The thumb drive sat on my desk for six days before I had the courage to plug it into the USB port on my computer. I should have waited six hundred days.
The files were filled with horrors. Horrors that I couldn’t imagine.
Documents, photographs, maps, sound recordings.
All of it was there on my Mac’s desktop. Just sitting there, the evidence that countless generations had hungered for. I had it.
But, for how long?
The following day the black sedans began to trail me. The men with earpieces on the street corners came next.
I haven’t stopped running.
Well, hello there!

LET THIS YEAR DIE BY FIRE!
Anyhoo, hope you dig the drabble. But, before you get into the micro-fiction amazeballsness, please have a look at a couple of links below.
His disguise had been too perfect.
He’d slid in through the back to steal leftovers from the kitchen before the head chef threw them into the incinerator. A month’s worth of food, destined to be burnt to dust at the end of the night.
When his chance came, he took it.
Then it all fell apart.
Trays of illicit hors d’oeuvres in hand, he was suddenly shoved into the ballroom, an angry red face yelling for him to stop standing there and get back to work. He’d been mistaken for a server because of his disguise.
His damned, perfect disguise.
