Talon: The Cocaine Cowboys (WIP) excerpt

I lifted him up by the arm and then throttled him by the throat. “Do you know who I am, Marty?”

He spit in my face and muttered something in Spanish. I wiped my face and howled, “Wrong answer, asshole!”

I tossed him on the bed, popped my fangs, and pounced on the bed. I got nose to nose with Marty and relished the feeling as the fear overwhelmed his eyes. “Wh-what the fuck are you?”

I snickered. “Jehovah’s Witness. I was wondering if you had a moment to talk about our personal Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

“What?” he asked, utterly confused.

I rolled my eyes and thought, My God, does no one get sarcasm in this fucking country?

Major Writing Updates

Hello followers and people maybe finding this blog for a first time. Got ALOT of updates so let’s get to them!

Firstly, “Where Old Acquiantances Be Forgot,” the Dragon Rocketship short story/novelette release of mine has been given the final official release date of October 31, Halloween! This is very exciting for me as it will be my first “stand alone Jay Michael Wright II” release. No anthologies, one name on the cover and it’s mine. Forgive me if I dance around and act a fool but it’s almost Christmas morning for me with this one.

If you didn’t know, “WOABF” is set in the presumedly haunted REAL abandoned Bryce asylum, located in or near Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The story happens on New Year’s Eve, which has something to do with the title but not everything. It’s a horror piece and everyone who’s read it seemed to get chills or have bad dreams over it so please come check out a touch of Alabama horror.

Secondly, The Death & Pestilence Anthology from Sandspress Publishing is gone to the last steps before setting a final release date. My story in this anthology is entitled “The Board” and has to do with a widower who is gifted a very odd gift not long after his wife’s death. If you lost the most important person in your life, how far would you go to get them back?

Thirdly, the Crossroads in the Dark II anthology from Burning Willow Press has had the final edit of the story sent and wheels are quickly turning on getting a release date. My story in this great collection is entitled “Cemetery Mountain” and tales the supposedly true Urban Legend of a Satanic Cult using a church that only appears on full moons and the Devil’s Bible itself.

Please, give my work a look! Share the blog or my other links listed above.
