Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

I’ve wandered into a convention for open-letter enthusiasts.  They’re laugh-snorting, calling themselves “total badasses,” and patting each other on the back for broadcasting their unedited thought-vomit.  One of them shoves my shoulder.  “Have you written one?  Huh?  DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE?”  They gather around me and start shouting at me, denouncing me for a coward.  Rocks fly at me and I cover my face.  I barely avoid a spinning dagger.  Holy Balls!  I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  My right hand glows with crackling blue.  I turn toward the crowd and they step back in fear as they see my lightning-wreathed eyes.  I grin and whisper, “Write about this.”  I grab my right wrist with my left hand, then lunge forward and flip them off with my glowing right middle finger.  A wave of concussive force jets outward from it, ruffling my hair back, and sends them flying like a bowling ball crashing into a set of tenpins.  I send more chi-blasts from my middle finger.  They make their escape, quacking and crying.

Middle-finger chi-blasts.  One day, it will happen.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle. Links for Vol.1 AND Vol.2 on Smashwords/Nook/iBooks/Kobo are available here:  Echo on other platforms
