We interrupt this free book fest to ask you, my beloved audience, to get up, go out, and buy Stark by Jake Bible (no actual going out required, just click the link). Jake is a fellow North Carolinian (though we’re both transplants), a talented author, and a complete jerk face for coming up with this idea!
Okay, perhaps it’s nothing brand new, but an e-book with illustrations isn’t something I see every day. He got a talented illustrator in Scott E. Pond and they’ve put out a product that looks like it’ll be bloody brilliant. I put the emphasis there for a reason. I haven’t read it yet, but the first few illustrations are black and white and red all over. Not surprising considering Jake’s previous works are soaked in gore.
If that turns you off, buy the book and gift it to someone who’s supercharged by it (and then back away slowly). Heck, buy it just to support such a brilliantly done work of fiction (again, I haven’t read it, but if it’s not brilliant I’ll rid the world of this hack once and for all). I plunked down fifteen bones myself sight unseen, and I’m a cheapskate.
So, your mission today is to support an indie author and an indie artist with your hard earned beer voucher. Lift one less pint this week and buy this book, your waistline will thank you!
