Announcing: It’s A Big Dystopia Out There

The second book is out and ready!

Behold!

It took me a little longer than expected to get this one out with everything going on in the world right now, but it’s available for purchase or for borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

It picks up a little later in the timeline from the first book and introduces honestly some of my favorite characters I’ve written. The satire aspects of the series are also, arguably, even more extreme than they were in the first book, but you’ll have to read the book to see what I mean.

I’m now trying to publish a book every month and so far I’m mostly on track. For as long as I can, I’m publishing and improving and trying new things. I’m even making some money at this author game.

So, yeah, I’m very excited to see where this all takes me and looking forward to finally, finally getting all five books in the Quintet out for people to read.

Stay tuned. The books only get more insane from here.

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 

Flash Fiction: That’ll Be Fifty Cents

Cents went in the machine. Out popped a jar of nutrient-rich slime, and the next customer came up to claim his meals for the next week. The slime tasted…fine, sat in the stomach fine, and would keep you alive.

It was also the only thing to eat—the only thing anyone ate. And thus, ash on John’s mouth. John hated the stuff with a burning passion beyond what a person his age should be capable of feeling. His mother had spoon fed it to him in the usual airplane style as a toddler, and even then, it felt like a kamikaze attack on his soul. Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Hunting Range – Part 1 of 3

Stretching the definition of “flash fiction” a tad, I present a three-part story.

A story of a city where the worst crime you can commit, is the most natural thing in the world.

It’s called:

Hunting Range

The pregnancy test shows positive, and now we run for our lives. Continue reading

Microfiction: Games

My first attempt at the infamous “second person perspective” writing style. It’s set in the same universe as my previous microfiction: “The Other White Meat.”

It’s a story of contests and stakes, simply titled:

Games

The game has only just begun. Continue reading

Rambling Review: Brave New World (The Book)

It should be noted that this review is more of an overview. As such, it contains heavy spoilers. For anyone that thinks that they can skip reading the book by reading this review: Please do not attempt. I am not a substitute, just read the damn book. A little culture never hurt.

How many godly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world! That has such people in’t!”

News: Truth is stranger than…friday fictions

Alright, so it turns out I can write things that are not reviews.

Well, fancy that.

Yeah so, I recently wrote a short story. It’s called “Garbage Man”.

It was an idea I had a few months back, but I guess it took till now for all of it to be sorted out in my head.

So I wrote it. Not knowing if it was any good, or even worth a damn. Continue reading
