Hey there lovely readers, so pleased to be with you again today :)!
I want to share a little bit of this and a little bit of that, all compliments the wonderful literary world ^_^.
First up is a flash piece by Joseph Veeravalli ‘(@zveeravalli)’, who says he’s not a writer, but on some occasions will leave me scrumptious bits of fiction in my inbox :). Here’s Hate:
~ Pain, bright lights and loud muted noise exploded in his head, the world no longer made sense. He tried to keep his balance but all strength left his body. Slumping to his knees, he struggled to look at his attacker. He gazed up to look into the eyes of the man beating him, but only saw his own bloodied and ruined face in the reflective faceplate. He was quickly losing consciousness with each strike. As he faded, what stuck with him was not the pain, the dull distance thud of fist on flesh, nor the warm blood covering his face, it was the sheer hatred in his attacker’s voice. He wondered how a man could hate another human, a complete stranger, so much. ~
On my reading list recently has been The Eye of the World, book one in The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. This is the fourth or fifth time in as many years I’m attempting to read this series and have to say that it’s still not the easiest for me to get into right away. I love the prose, don’t get me wrong, but I’m not sure if it’s a case of always being in the wrong frame of mind for this particular book when I begin it. Either way, I’ll stick with it till the end this time and a book review will follow on ‘Jackie Jones on YouTube’. Have you read the series before? What are your thoughts on it?
Let me now direct your attention to Jacob’s Apocalypse and Other Stories, which is basically a mash up of a bunch of speculative flash and short fiction found on this blog, as well as the short story Jacob’s Apocalypse which is only available on Wattpad within this book. Expect to jump from fantasy to sci-fi and psychological thriller to dark romance, as the titles in this collection of short fiction give you quick tastes of my writing, especially if you haven’t read any of my published books ^_^. Check it out here: ‘Jacob’s Apocalypse and Other Stories’
That’s it from me today guys, share your thoughts in the comments below, be well and I’ll see you Friday ^_^!
Please note: After this long break the beginning of Chapter 16: Glamorous Lies, will be posted on ‘Jackie Jones on Wattpad.’. Look out for the Awakening Character Guide soon and catch up with the story using the link above, as with only FIVE chapters left, you’ll want to catch up ^_^.
Remember you can also contact me for information about facilitating reviews, interviews, etc on this blog site ^_^.
