A Small Woman
By
Jake Bible

“Mommy!”

Tera sprinted across the grass, her feet slipping in the damp dew of the early morning. Her lungs burned and her calves had begun to cramp, but she didn’t dare slow.

“Mommy!”

Her only thoughts were to get to her daughter before that hatch closed. As if she could do anything against the machine that had come for the children. As if a small woman, petite since birth, could fight off the empire and take back the thing most precious to her in the world.

“Mommy!”

Tera screamed as the armored truck pulled away, spitting gravel in her face.

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Howdy!

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!

Anyhoo, it’s time to get toasty and kick back for some 100 word goodness.

But, and you knew it was coming, time for a little shilling first!

Stone Cold Bastards is up for pre-order! Want to see the cover? Then click away and be transported to a magical blog post where I reveal the cover to this awesome new novel! CLICK!

Pretty awesome, right? Yeah, you’ll want to pre-order this baby. Be one of the cool kids that got in on the ground floor!

And now, on with the Drabble!

Enjoy!

Thumb Drive
By
Jake Bible

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.

Video.

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.

Writing In Suburbia #48: The Bizzeee

Well, will you look at this! I managed to get one more episode in before 2016 calls it quits.

In this episode I chat about so much stuff. All the stuff. There’s a lot of stuff. I also unlock a secret to quickly writing a pilot script for TV. You know, in case you needed something more specific than just stuff.

Enjoy!
