Free The Chronic Suicidalist December 22 — 26, 2017

Free, just in time for Christmas is the novella The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal for Amazon Kindle.

You can secure your copy via the link above in its wondrous glory, starting December 22nd until December 26th. You can also check out the new hardcover art that is available, in comparison to its predecessor (which is available in digital and paperback).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There will be other free deals in time. However, this is the deal you are looking for. Be sure to get your free copy this holiday season for yourself, for a friend, or any other reader on your Naughty or Nice List.

Bob likes the Naughty List.

If someone you know and love knows what it’s like to be the sad man, and what it’s like to be down on their luck, this book is for them. If they want a laugh, this book is also for them. If they secretly want the world to burn and think a deranged man who kills himself multiple times a day can do it, this book is for them. Plus, it’s also free. It’s also fiction. Free fiction that combines dark humor, action, suspense, science fiction, bewilderment, and what the fuck just happened, ALL IN ONE! It’s like getting a Dell, but without the spam and malware, that’s pre-installed.

So, I invite you to take a chance. Leap the big building of normalcy and dive head first into this adventure involving a beloved character who has nothing going for him. What’s the worse that happens? You could hate it, or you could love it? It’s free.

Fantastic descriptions of what it would be like to wake up with no consequences.

Realization that this is fiction and that Bob is a meme and has his arms and legs, and still gets around quite well.

Eagerly hope that Bob doesn’t die in the end.

Everlasting love and friendship are for the birds. This is Bob’s story, and he’s sticking to it.

If you didn’t see that subliminal message that was pretty obvious, then I don’t know what to tell you. In any case, face the void with Bob at the helm. We’re crashing this ship right into your face, and infiltrating your mind with the asinine.

Pick up The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal for free, starting December 22nd — 26th, 2017.

To infinity and next time…and also wishing you an A.B.Normal holiday season.

So, you think you know the world? You think at night you’re safe, comfy cozy under your bedsheets and ignorant to all the wrongs society has done—or has yet to do?

Delve into the world of Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle, where things are not as they seem. It may seem like ours, and you may think that but rest assured, it’s nothing like the fairy tales or folk tales you’ve heard or read.


Excerpt


“Playing cards? What, are you gonna poker us to death?”

“Henry . . .” The brown-haired kid attempted to silence his loudmouthed friend before he could cause more trouble for both of them.

The girl they knew as Lilah allowed a smirk at the stray comment. “Next, we have the two of clubs, but that’s nothing special.” She showed the third card. “A king of clubs, not too important.” She then revealed the fourth card. “Three of clubs, but that doesn’t matter. You see, it’s always the last card that’s key!”

“Look, Gary, she’s lost it. The goth girl’s finally gone loony. She’s—” He cut his sentence short. What was happening now, was beginning to make him question his own sanity.

The top card of the deck was moving, but not by her hand— all by itself, rather. It slid up until it was standing upright on the deck, its back to the two boys. Slowly, it began to turn towards them. As this spectacle occurred, neither noticed the sadistic grin forming on the girl’s previously blank face, or her eyes starting to glow a dull green. As the card hit the halfway point, the boys found they could no longer move, and sense of touch had almost wholly left their bodies. The card was nearly completely facing them now, and sparks of electricity arced from its corners. This card was all wrong—series of sigils and symbols spun, scribed by something, not of this world. Red and black intermingled within the spade, and in each corner, was the number thirteen.

“Black Thirteen, boys. This is where we part!”

 


Don’t wait too long. You may miss out on your own second chance. . .

A Blast From the Past: Johnny “Nightwalker”

The scifi fantasy story Johnny “Nightwalker” by Robert J. S. T. McCartney, posts in ToC (table of contents) form.

Here, we are taking a look at the series of posts for the story Johnny “Nightwalker  that are laid out in ToC (table of contents) form. What you will find is the current posts leading up to the hiatus that has taken place.

The conclusion of this story will be released via post when they are fit. Edits and revision are not seen as a hurdle, as it is believed (and best practice) to write right away, and then worry about the small parts later.

Now, let’s get down to business, shall we?

LILAH’S GUIDE TO HOYLE


Deluxe cover for
“All life is a gamble… We go to sleep every night comfortably betting that the next day we’ll wake up.”

Description:

“All life is a gamble . . . We go to sleep every night comfortably betting that the next day we’ll wake up.”

Demons. Sorcery. Magical playing cards. It’s anything but a fairy tale. Armed with her choice deck, her beloved book, Hoyle’s Guide to Poker and Parlor Tricks, and the skill that led her to throw away her college fund, Lilah gambles with her life—and with the lives of those around her.

Elsewhere, other players have a different idea of the rules of the game. And investigating the bizarre chain of events is Middleton PD’s finest, Detectives Dana Deupree and Walter Conway.

It’s anyone’s game. The cards have been shuffled and the stakes are high. The call has gone around the table. Others may fold, but not Lilah. She plays for keeps.

What will you wager? Will you call? Stand? Or will you fold?


You can get a digital copy via Amazon at $2.99.

You can also secure a paperback or hardcover copy.

FROM THE DESK OF ROBERT J. S. T. MCCARTNEY

Happy New Year and salutations.

Sure, the new year started a bit back but that’s OK. Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle was released, The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal was finished…and compiled. The Diary of the Wasteland Bear God ended its first season and (is being compiled) started its second season. It’s a new year and with it plenty of things to do!

NEW NEWS/POSTS

In case you missed out on last year’s finale, it’s a good time to get caught up.

The Season One Finale of The Diary of the Wasteland Bear God.

The conclusion of The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal.

The Winter break for Johnny “Nightwalker.”


So what’s happening this year? Well, Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle is book two in the series (chronologically) while it was declared to be released first. Each book is stand-alone but offers as an overall piece of a greater puzzle. As such, the prequel…or book one…will be polished and offered to the Public this year with its title and cover announced.

Johnny Nightwalker will be finishing its story up. Thereafter, it will be compiled, sealed, cast into the shadows, summoned, and sent out into the world.

There may…be an appearance of a lovely fellow, and his name rhymes with…Bob. More on that later.

There will be several stories coming out via a novel, novelette(s), novella, etc.

Needless to say, there are things happening this year.
