As newsletter subscribers already know, I’ve released the latest novelette in my Stories from a Post-Break World series! A Sure Thing is now free-to-read on Kindle Unlimited or available for purchase in digital format!
While See These Bones and its sequels are understandably focused on Damian and his struggles, it’s a big, broken world out there. The Stories from a Post-Break World series offers brief glimpses of events and places beyond Damian’s reach. These stories often touch on locations or secondary characters from the main series. They also give me an opportunity to play around with different perspectives and writing styles and hopefully add some texture to the greater world.
In the post-Break world of superpowers, Los Angeles is a city divided between the haves and the have-nots, the rich and the poor, the Capes and the Black Hats.
But there is a secret organization working in the shadows of the underworld. The Company focuses on illicit profit instead of mayhem or fame.
Clive Treeble isn’t a Power. He isn’t much of anything at all, other than a petty criminal struggling to hold on to his mother’s house.
Until the day an old acquaintance reaches out with an offer. The Company needs a man for its latest heist. Succeed and Clive’s future is assured. Fail and the city might not be big enough to hide in.
(Please note: the usual content warnings apply. These include graphic language and violence, criminal acts, and more expletives than you’d want to shake a stick at.)
I hope you enjoy this brief, bloody tale of Clive Treeble and the heist that’s going to finally make his name in Los Angeles. Enjoy, and I’d love to hear what you think!
