New Release: Galactic Vice!

I am pleased to announce: Galactic Vice!

This is my first true police procedural, so if you love those cops getting the bad guys, cops being the bad guys, cops just trying to do a hard job and stay alive kind of novels then this puppy is for you! And if you have friends and family that love cop thrillers then please share!

Huzzah!

Corruption. Greed. Lust.
Sins undercover Galactic Vice Detective Etch Knowles faces every day.

Politicians on the take. Underground gambling. Sex trafficking.
Another day at the office for Galactic Vice Lieutenant Angie McDade.

Shaking down hustlers. Offering “protection” to bar owners. Cheating at tile games.
Galactic Vice Detective Kalaka doesn’t exactly play by the rules.

A cargo barge filled with corpses. A potential war between crime syndicates. Traitors within the Galactic Vice.
These are the nightmares the three must face. Using all of their resources and experience they will fight to keep each other alive even it means bending rules, busting heads, and breaking laws.

But tossing regulations to the side and going rogue may not save them from an investigation that has doom and downfall written all over it.

Can they solve the case before it becomes their last? Or will the operation fail and end up ripping their lives and Jafla Base apart…

Reminisced
By
Jake Bible

The man sat against the wall, his body wrapped in several old, tattered blankets.

He stared out at the rubble and ruin that had once been a great city and reminisced.

The magnificent buildings that had towered above the citizens as they hustled to and fro from lives that were on a never ending repeat cycle. The steam and smoke of industry that had once settled over the rooftops. The sounds, so many sounds, that filled the ears to almost bursting.

It had been glorious.

A scrape on scorched concrete made the man close his eyes.

It was his time.

Plagiarism in the New Year! And the Friday Night Drabble Party, of course!

Hello, 2018!

What a year so far. Guess what I’ve been dealing with? Plagiarism!

First, I have to say that the hardest part about dealing with plagiarism is learning how to spell it. Who the hell put the “i” in there? English is one crazy language, y’all.

Anyway, for those that haven’t been following the saga on my social media feeds, an astute reader alerted me to the issue that an author named Balogun Ojetade decided he’d change character names and the setting of my Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter novel, but pretty much keep all the other prose and pass it off as his own. What a dick! The guy basically perpetrated a word for word ripoff of my novel. And thought he could get away with it!

The problem is in the Kindle Age, that fans and readers of specific genres can search Amazon for books by using specific keywords. Such as “bounty hunter”. That’s a pretty niche sub-genre. It was only a matter of time before the guy would have been found out. Lucky for me, the stolen novel was only up on Amazon for two days before I was alerted to the issue. Phew!

Anyhoo, don’t take my word for it. I happen to have a lovely visual aid! Check out the pic below and see for yourself how much of a ripoff this thing was. Jeez…

Crazy, right?

Ok, ok, enough about this crap. How about we get to the– WAIT!

Stone Cold Bastards won the Golden Coolthulu Award for Best Horror Novel of 2017! Check it out!

Alright, now, on with the drabble!

Enjoy!

Activation Complete
By
Jake Bible

“Activation complete, sir. Shall I bring the subject fully online?”

“Please do, Mr. Balston.”

The click of keys echoed in the laboratory as the body lying supine upon the exam table stared blankly up at the ceiling. Another thirty seconds of key clicking by Mr. Balston passed before the body blinked twice then turned his gaze upon Dr. Sherman.

“Good evening, Lawrence,” the body said.

“Good evening, Channing,” Dr. Sherman replied. “How are you feeling this fine evening?”

“Like a new man, Lawrence,” Channing, the body, replied. He lifted a hand and stared at it. “Literally, I see. Well done.”

Razer Edge Now Available As An Audiobook! YOU ARE WELCOME!

That’s right, y’all! Razer Edge is now an audiobook!

Available from Audible and iTunes!

Click away to get your copy so that your earholes don’t jump off your head and go looking for themselves. Always keep your earholes happy, people! Always keep your earholes happy…

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!

A Car
By
Jake Bible

Pure fear. That’s what Harold felt as he stared at the monstrosity in his garage.

“Uh…thanks?” he said with a forced smile.

“It’s a car,” Livia stated.

“Yeah, I see that,” Harold replied. “Is it, uh, street legal?”

“Well, no, obviously.”

“Obviously.”

Harold reached behind him, fumbling blindly for the doorknob. He gave it a twist. The clicking noise made Livia turn and her blood smeared face glowed eerily in the fluorescent lights.

“Where ya going?” she asked.

“Gotta pee,” Harold replied then fled, leaving Livia and the dripping, stinking, pile of meat she called a “car” far behind.
