Friday Night Drabble Party!

Happy Friday!

Gonna make this super quick so we can get to the drabble goodness.

The incredible writer, Lee Murray, has switched publishers. She is now with Severed Press and has moved her amazing novel, Into The Mist, over to Severed! Let’s all give her a huge welcome by clicking on that cover below and buying her book! I’ve read it, it’s incredible, and certainly a novel that fans of mine will love. GO GET IT! Oh, and it won the Sir Julius Vogel Award for 2016 Best Novel! Bam!

Also, Galactic Vice audiobook!

And Agent Prime!

Now, on with the drabble!



Twas A Nice Life
Jake Bible

“Oh my, oh my, oh my!” Bumbletubs cried as he ran down the corridor, the Thing right on his heels. “OH MY!”

“Bumbletubs!” the prince shouted from his bedroom. “Keep it down, I am trying to nap!”

“Sorry to disturb, M’Lord!” Bumbletubs screamed as he raced past the prince’s closed bedroom door. “So sorry!”

“Well, you should be, Bumbletubs! You should be!” The prince grumbled inaudibly then snoring reached the corridor after assailing the bedroom door.

Bumbletubs scampered around the corridor’s corner, the Thing still on his heels.

“Twas a nice life,” Bumbletubs thought just as the Thing caught up.

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Oh, you have come back! I thought I’d never see you again!

Hmmm…what’s that? How can I see you now?

Well, I can’t, of course. That’d be silly… Ignore the blinking red light. Nothing to see there.

SO! How about some drabble stuff? 100 words of micro-fiction to distract you from the blinking red light? Not that there is a blinking red light. YOU SEE NOTHING!

Anyhoo…buy Galactic Vice on audiobook. Or buy Agent Prime on Kindle or paperback. Your choice. HELL, WHY CHOOSE? Pick ’em both. You’ll thank me.

Here are some handy pics you can click on. Do it. DOOOOO EEEEEEET!

Oh, and if you want the Friday Night Drabble Party delivered to your inbox at lunch time, instead of at night, then subscribe to my weekly newsletter! DO EEEEEET!

Now, on with the drabble!



Dreadfully Terrifying Occurrence
Jake Bible


No response. Not even a “Don’t bother with me, M’Lord! Save yourself!” Rather inconsiderate. Completely unacceptable.

“Well, Bumbletubs,” the prince muttered. “If you are going to hide after such a tragedy has befallen me then I shall think not of you again. You are banished from my mind, Bumbletubs. Banished!”

“M’lord? Who are you speaking to?”


“Yes, M’Lord?”

“I thought you’d died when my pudding exploded!”

“Exploded, M’Lord? It appears you only spilled it.”

“Ah, yes… It appears so. Dreadfully terrifying occurrence. Did not like it. Make sure it never happens again.”

“I will do my best, M’Lord.”

Click this gorgeous pic and go get you some Galactic Vice!

Now, on with the drabble!



Never Be Forgotten
Jake Bible

No one could have seen it coming. No one.

Even the megacorporations had no idea it was the end. They were oblivious to the crisis right on the horizon. Always busy with current Profit & Loss statements, never thinking of the future or the consequences of their actions.

When the stores began to run out, people brushed it off. No one even considered it a possibility. The end? Never. Can’t happen.

But it did happen. And when it was finally all gone, civilization collapsed. Mayhem. Murder. Misery.

The day the last carton of ice cream was sold will never be forgotten.

New Audiobook!

Galactic Vice is now out in audiobook! Go get ya some!

It all starts with an interstellar cargo barge full of corpses…

The criminal scum of the galaxy have found a new playground and its name is Jafla Base. Now Galactic Vice Detective Etch Knowles has to infiltrate that playground before the criminal syndicates end up in all-out war.

Corruption on every level of government, brutal violence around every corner, alien races that consider humans the lowest of low, and a laser blaster always pointed at his back, Knowles needs Galactic Vice Lieutenant Angie McDade and Galactic Vice Detective Kalaka to back him up. Their job is to keep Knowles from getting his head blown off or die trying.

But there are forces at work that want nothing more than for Jafla Base to burn. And some of those forces may be coming from within the Jafla Base Vice Squad itself!

Action, intrigue, corruption, lust, and greed fuel the never ending thrill ride that is Galactic Vice!


Murder. Espionage. Romance. Treachery. Greed.

Agent Prime is prepared for it all!
