Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Black Friday:  Wrong day to shop.  My face is scrunched in fury as I churn the ground with my feet, driving my shopping cart forward.  I’m racing a pack of soccer moms, and they’re snarling furiously, their botox-ed faces crackling with hate.  One shoulders me—OOF—and I crumple sideways.  I scrabble to my feet and I’m back in the mix.  One chops at my legs with her purse and I leap straight up (Parkour!) and I land and keep running.  Suddenly I see a quartet of them driving at me from my right, and BOOM, t-bone my cart.  I hit the ground and the world goes slow-mo; everything is spinning, whirling….shit, this is the end….I’m sorry for the time I punched my brother in the belly after he ate two XL pizzas…sorry for the time I used the last piece of toilet paper and didn’t replace the roll…I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  An Iron Man drone swoops inward, carving a path through the moms with a repulsor ray salvo.  It hooks my arms and picks me up, rocketing me through the store aisles in a series of tight, boot-jet driven turns.  I grab what I’m looking for—a hard-to-find, deluxe edition of Mariah Carey’s Christmas stuff (yeah it’s my guilty pleasure, make fun if you want)—and scream into the sunset, whooping with delight.

There is only one defense against Black Friday moms, and unsurprisingly, it’s an Iron Man drone.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle
