Fiction Friday: Talk To Your Children about Two-Tongued Jeremy

My first novel, City of Kaiju, is available for pre-order TODAY. Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Releasing on February 12th, 2019.

Ever have that toy that looked innocent enough, but turned out super creepy, as if it wanted to kill you? Well, that’s what this story reminded me of, only in mobile app form.

Today’s story is a bit intense, but I felt it was a very masterfully built tale of bullying, harassment, and AI monitor lizards. Today, we’re reading Talk to Your Children about Two-Tongued Jeremy by Theodore McCombs, as featured in Lightspeed Magazine. You can find it here. Imagine something like ABC Mouse or something similar, only it chastised you for being behind, screwing up, all to the point of merciless cyber-bullying.

Oh, and the thing hacks into your smartphone like Skynet and Facebook on steroids. Yikes.

Well, let’s begin.

Fiction Friday: Secondborn Review

So last month, I reviewed something I didn’t care for. Today, I’m reviewing a book I enjoyed a lot. It’s called Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol. You can find it here. It’s another sci-fi dystopia novel, but I think it’s one of the better ones. It has a gripping story and wonderful writing and focuses on someone who’s clearly nobility, yet treated like a commoner. So, let’s begin.
