Impossible Body
By
Jake Bible

“Of all the specimens I’ve collected, this one is my favorite,” Mr. Rege stated as he gestured towards the display case. “As you can see, it is perfectly preserved. Until this find, only partial examples were ever found.”

Morgan stared at the multi-limbed…thing. It was suspended in the display case by thick wires, its impossible body hung for all to see.

Then it twitched.

“Uh…Mr. Rege?” Morgan said, tapping him on the shoulder as the man continued to address the other guests. “It moved.”

“Nonsense,” Mr. Rege said as the display case shattered into a thousand pieces.

Writing In Suburbia #60: The One Where I Interview Myself! And Fail Hard…

Welcome back, y’all!

It’s time for episode #60! Woo hoo!

In this episode, I attempt to interview myself. No, seriously. It’s all part of a new segment I’ll be including in Writing In Suburbia twice a month. I’ll be interviewing writers and asking them two questions: Why do you write? and, What was, or still is, the hardest part about being a writer?

I’ve already got some great interviews recorded.

But I thought it would be fun to break y’all in with an interview of myself. Fun? Sure. Funny? Yeah, I crack myself up.

So, have a listen and enjoy!

Cheers!

Friday Night Drabble Party!

Happy Friday, y’all!

Is your Friday a freezing hellscape of wind and stupid weather? Mine is! Over 50 degrees yesterday and now it isn’t even 30? END TIMES, PEOPLE! END TIMES!

Speaking of end of times, and beginning of times, you should check out Brian Walton’s Recursion series.

“The Recursion Event Saga is a time travel thriller told chronologically in 5 parts. each taking you to unique settings, times, and characters. From 1950s Paris to a post-apocalyptic future, lives and fates collide in ISD Agent Molly Gardner’s desperate fight to hold together the threads of history, and to solve the riddle of her life.

A war-correspondent searching for his dead wife, a young screenwriter with a love for the paranormal, a time-traveling double agent, and a girl who’s lived multiple lives—all play a part in the century-spanning saga.

This week only (1/30-2/2) get books 1-3 of the Recursion Event Saga for 99c each, and escape through time today… or yesterday.

Sounds cool, right? Check it out!

Something else to check out? Autographed novels! I am now signing and shipping books directly to you! To YOU!

Also, don’t forget about Galactic Vice! And sign up for the mailing list!

Now, on with the Drabble! Huzzah!

Enjoy!

Really Upset
By
Jake Bible

“I can’t find my wallet,” the man sobbed. “I can’t find my wallet!”

“Should we help?” Melissa whispered to Jeff. “He looks really upset.”

“He lost his wallet,” Jeff said as the couple walked on. “I’d be upset too.”

“IT WAS MY LIFE!” the man shrieked.

“Jeff…” Melissa hissed.

“Fine,” Jeff said, returning to the man as Melissa waited. “Hey, buddy, can I–.”

The knife slash was swift.

“Did you take it?” the man asked, Jeff’s throat spewing blood.

Melissa screamed.

The man smiled down at Jeff. Then he picked up something from the sidewalk. “Oh, wait, here it is.”

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.
