Should the E-book Be a Print Book Too?

October Update: The Martini of Destiny Ever since The Martini of Destiny launched back in June, people have asked whether or not I’d come out with a print version of the book.

At last you at here

Today’s Oneword: Stamped The sound repeated and repeated, never louder, never softer, never stopping. He opened the door, and now the sound was louder. The machines stamped and stamped, and as he walked to the end of the room, he saw light glinting off metal discs as they moved down a conveyor belt. “At last … Read More

What happens if you go off a cliff?

Today’s Oneword: Parachute “So what happens if you go off a cliff?” he said. “Does a parachute come out of the trunk, and we glide down like butterflies?” She put the last bag into the sidecar trunk and closed the hatch. “No,” she replied. “We scream and plummet and die.” “Oh.

Today’s Oneword: Pines “I’ve still never seen anything like it,” he said. “The firs and pines are taller than you’d think life could stretch. The forests aren’t bits of woods here and there. They stretch like oceans, far as the eye can see, covering the hills and valleys all the way to the horizon. For … Read More

Are you getting aboard or what?

Today’s Oneword: Aboard “Are you getting aboard or what?” She shook her head and took a deep breath. I’ve always hated these things, she thought. “If we’re going to find him, we have to work together. Like it or not.” “Fine.” She climbed into the sidecar. “But the moment you pop this thing into the … Read More

The one who cleans it up

Today’s Oneword: Lunacy What exactly did they think would be the end result, anyway? The shambles of the world, simple fools drowning in their own lunacy; where was light? Where was order?
