The latest installment of BQB’s Twisted Shorts is now available on Amazon.
When amateur skydiver Larry Rutledge takes his first jump out of a perfectly good airplane only to find his primary and backup ripcords have been sabotaged, he’ll have five minutes and 13,500 feet to figure out how to save his life…if he can. If there’s any time leftover, will he be able to solve the mystery and identify the parachute saboteur? Will it even matter if he doesn’t survive?
A tale of money, an illicit affair, thrills and suspense awaits you in this, the fifth installment of BQB’s Twisted Shorts. Do you like “The Twilight Zone?” Do you like “The Outer Limits?” Do you like “Black Mirror?” Well, BQB doesn’t have the budget to make shows as awesome as those, but his self-published journey toward creating an episodic anthology has begun.
My next installment of BQB’s Twisted Shorts is about an average schmuck who goes skydiving for the first time, only to find his primary and backup cords aren’t working.
With 5 minutes before he hits the pavement, he needs to figure out how to save himself, if he can. Also, foul play is suspected, so will he be able to figure out who sabotaged his parachute and why?
Here it is. The cover for BQB’s Twisted Shorts – Volume 1 – Issue 5 – Freefall.
I think this is the best of the 5 covers. The other 5 were great but this, wow, I mean, if you’re browsing through a bookshelf and see this cover, you want to open it up and find out what happens to this guy, don’t you?
I’ve noticed a trend the past couple of times I have put out free books. Last time, someone bought a book and this time around, someone bought three books.
What’s this mean? To me its a sign that someone read a free book, liked what they read, and were willing to part with some dough to read more.
Is it a lot? No. All comes down to like a buck or two. But its a sign of progress. Success in self-publishing really does seem to come down to putting out more content. Maybe next time I put out a free book, someone will buy 4 or 5 and so on.
Thus, I’ve been putting out my shorts – very quick short stories. They fluctuate between 10-20,000 words and I try to cap it off at 20. Most seem to be closer to 10,000. Easier to get out there, editing and formatting is easier and more affordable.
I do think ultimately I need to get some full length novels out there and they’ll come…eventually. Slow and steady wins the race as the turtle once famously proved.
Anyway, two of my books are FREE for the next day or two so grab your FREE copy. Thank you, 3.5 readers.
Oh, wait. You do? Cool. Because this FREE BOOK is FREE so go get it.
Are you intrigued by conspiracy theories? So is Harry Blanding. This wacky, crazy old vagrant shows up at a subway stop every day, shouting out absurd claims about aliens, UFOs, Bigfoot, Russian spies and more.
Most write him off as a performance artist with a twisted sense of humor…but one particular government agency that may or may not exist is not laughing.
In conclusion, this book is FREE and really, noble reader, how often do you get something for FREE? You should get this FREE book for FREE right now.
I have a new FREE short on Amazon. Totally FREE. Did I mention it is FREE? Now and for the next few days you can get a FREE copy.
Harry Blanding is a crazy old conspiracy theorist…or is he?
Every day he arrives at a subway stop in New York City, ringing a bell as he shouts out wacky claims, each one sillier than the next. Pudding cup labels that contain subliminal messages. A nuclear warhead stockpile inside Teddy Roosevelt’s head on Mt. Rushmore. Bigfoot is a hitman in the employ of Russian spies.
Absurd, right? When cell phone videos of Harry’s antics go viral, most assume the old man is a performance artist with a twisted sense of humor.
One particular agency that may or may not exist isn’t laughing.
Boy, 3.5 readers, my little Amazon catalog sure is growing.
My third short, “The End Is Nigh” is now available. Wacky conspiracy theorist and alleged nutball Harry Blanding shows up at a subway stop every day, ringing his bell while he blurts out his absurd claims.
Most believe him to be a performance artist with an absurd sense of humor, but when cell phone footage of Harry’s antics goes viral, one particular government agency that may or may not exist is not laughing.
What’s that 3.5 readers? You are Elon Musk? You are super rich and able to drive a Tesla on the moon and you don’t want to get my book for FREE?
Well, that’s ok. If you are rich then you can buy it tomorrow.
But for those of you who are not super rich space tycoons, my book is FREE today and it would be a big help if you grab a FREE copy by the end of the day. I have given away 88 copies so far so it would be awesome to make it an even 100.
Ahh, the joys of writing where giving away free copies can be considered a success.
You’ll enjoy it, 3.5 readers. It’s a quick read. It is poignant and sad and it even has a twist of dark humor here and there. And if you don’t want to read it, you don’t have to because there isn’t going to be a pop quiz or anything.
