“Black C.A.S.T.L.E.” Chapter I – Breach

I. Breach

The outermost gate of Black C.A.S.T.L.E.’s perimeter could bring a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling at 55 miles per hour to a dead stop. Any vehicle that tried to breach this gate by brute force would end up looking like a crumpled soda can.

#NaNoWriMo, #NaNoReMo, and #BlackCASTLE

If you haven’t heard of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, it’s a month-long event in which aspiring authors attempt to churn out a full novel between November 1st and November 30th. It’s a very cool idea that highlights individual achievements with tons of community support. But as fun and inspiring as it is, some folks struggle to read a novel in a month, let alone write one.

So this November, I’m participating in NaNoReMo, or National Novel Reading Month, by supplying you, dear readers, with a full-length novel one chapter at a time, one day at a time! Fittingly, it’ll be a thriller, a page-turner, an action-packed edge-of-your-seat read that’ll have you zooming through each chapter and waiting in anticipation for the next installment each and every day!

All I can tell you about the story right now is this:

  • It’s titled ‘Black C.A.S.T.L.E.’
  • It’s a science-slanted heist thriller

For more, be sure to follow along with the hashtag #BlackCASTLE and keep an eye out for more over the next few days! The first chapter may just drop as a trick-or-treat special on Halloween!

“I See You” (6k)

For some, nightmares are cause for distress; for me, they’re a cause for celebration. I don’t know how many of my stories started out as nightmares, which I quickly jotted down on a notepad upon waking, but this story is definitely one of them. To tell you about it would be to give away one of the creepier moments so I’ll just say that Mary’s experience, just one of which you’re about to read, comes directly from one of my more disturbing subconscious creations. And what better time for such a story than in the weeks approaching Halloween?
