Heeeeeelllllllllooooooooooo, Friday! Time to get our Drabble Party on!
Free micro-fiction for you and me, baby! Ahhhhhhh, yeah!
But, before we get into the drabbletasticness, let’s talk about Little Dead Man!
That’s right, I have a new novel out! This one is by Permuted Press and is my YA debut. I kid you not, folks, it is Jake Bible goodness for the WHOLE family (if your family is 12 and up)! If you love my novels then you’ll love this one!
What’s it about? Have a read:
Decades after the zombie apocalypse, seventeen year old Garret Weir just wants to be a normal teenager. As if dealing with the zombies isn’t hard enough, his annoying twin brother refuses to leave him in peace. And it’s not like Garret can just go to his room and shut the door to get away. His brother Garth is a zombie and conjoined to the top of Garret’s spine. Good times.
Forced from his hidden, mountain compound, Garret must learn who to trust and who to fear as he and Garth are thrust into a world more horrific than anything they could imagine. Fighting for their lives in a foreign landscape, the brothers head north to find their father who may have the answer to the deadly virus that caused the zombie apocalypse. Along their way they meet new friends, learn betrayal the hard way, fight for their mother’s life, run from deadly enemies, and discover that life may have seemed difficult before, but can always get a whole lot worse.
A fast-paced, high-action novel that doesn’t pull any punches, Little Dead Man is a surprisingly sweet story of two brothers – one living, one undead – that struggle with a mother that is mentally unstable, a missing father that has kept too many secrets, and a lie their parents have always told – that they are the last survivors on Earth. When the truth of that lie is revealed, Garret and Garth quickly find out that having other survivors in the world isn’t exactly a good thing. In fact, it’s quite deadly.
What do you think? Crazy cool, right? Right. What’s that? You’d rather have the print version? Well, that will be available very soon! July 15th, in fact! Feel free to pre-order that puppy by clicking on teh same link and choosing the paperback option!
Now, on to our drabble!
Coin Flips, Man
“One could be my girlfriend, right?” the young man asked.
“Yes,” the Council above the pit replied as one.
“And one is, like, what? A man-eating tiger? Those still exist? I thought with deforestation and crap there, like, weren’t any man-eating tigers left?”
“Choose!” the Council shouted.
“Jeez, chill, bras. This isn’t easy.”
He stood there facing the two doors and frowned.
“Anyone have a coin I could flip? Doesn’t have to be a quarter. Nickel will totally do.”
“Carl!” a woman’s voice rang out from behind one door. “Just pick a fucking door!”
