6 Days Left Update

Felt like a kid at Christmas when I opened up my copies of my novel Aftermath. Probably next week I will schedule a book signing at the library and my old college Brookdale. In the meantime I’m just updating all my social media. The 20th is when Wasteland Press promotes the book.

I think I’m in a good position. Every author I talked to said I’m ahead of the game, but in my mind I don’t think so. Nerves and stress I guess. The 20th is approaching fast and I don’t really know what will happen. I’m not a book guy. “But aren’t you a writer?” Yea, but I don’t find much interest in reading. So I don’t know where readers get the scoop on the next latest book. But I trust Wasteland Press.

Oh also in June I have a virtual book tour with Bewitching Books. So from what I read it’s a lot of getting me out on others blogs and promoting my book and doing interviews. It’s very exciting, but stressful. I haven’t woken up past 5:45 in days. I have a list of everything I need to do, but sometimes I can’t do it all in a day.

It’ll get better I know, but right now my toilet is getting a lot of action from my stress induced crapping. On that note, I would like to thank all of you for your support.

You can check it out at Amazon and Barnes and Noble

Eating People

Have you ever looked at a guy in a non-sexual way and said, “I really want a piece of him in my mouth?” In the world of Aftermath, that’s not strange statement. Most of us aren’t seasoned forest rangers who can go into the woods with a butter knife and build a shopping mall. To survive you must rely on what you know. Meat = Food plain and simple.

Most people are going to have to live off the land to survive. That can actually be a death sentence in itself. There was a jingle to remember what berries in the woods were poisonous. “Green and sweet and good to eat” or was it “Red and sweet and good to eat” either way you can’t leave your survival up to a coin toss.

You use the same principles in cooking a steak that you would use when cooking a person. Overcooked is better than undercooked to guarantee you won’t get sick from raw meat. The creative part is how to do the actual cooking. Rotisserie style, skillet, barbeque grates, the goal is to have the cooking apparatus has to be raised up over the fire and not sitting directly on it. This is so you’re able to add more wood to keep the fire going.

It’s kill or be killed out there. You have to focus on your survival no matter what the cost. Eating a person doesn’t make you evil, it just makes you more in tune with how the world is run now. You must always remember that you must do whatever you have to if it ensures your survival, even eat someone.

Recycling Plant Of Terror

Public Worker hurls javelin into a crowd after boxes pile up

After hours of tireless work, Township worker Eric Johnson finally snapped and hurled a piece of scrap metal, like an Olympic Athlete, into unsuspecting townsfolks. The mental breakdown happened after the baler (machine designed to crush cardboard) was filled to the top.

Many people did not use the Recycling Center the previous day because of heavy snowfall. The day after, the workers had a bombardment of customers, most of them bringing mass loads of cardboard to be recycled.

On a typical day, the process of emptying out the baler takes as long as it takes the maintenance worker to come up to the Recycling Plant with the truck to take it.

“It is usually a quick process. The guy shows up within an hour or two and empties it,” said an unnamed Township Worker who witnessed the incident.

This particular day, the maintenance worker tasked with emptying out the baler wasn’t contacted due to downsizing caused by lowered taxes.

The boxes began to pile up and the Township Workers were forced to put all the boxes in a row. Within 3 short hours the row of boxes was 35 feet long and 6 feet high.

Johnson finally screamed out in frustration “(Expletive) this!” Johnson then reached into a pile of metal scraps, pulled out a javelin shaped one and hurled it at townsfolks.

Thankfully nobody was severely hurt by the thrown javelin, but the fallout was massive. One woman, Olivia Smith, was pregnant at the time and was in the car as her husband was unloading materials. Smith was so startled by the event that her water broke 7 weeks prematurely and she went into massive labor right there in the car.

Another man, Roger Evans, jumped when he heard Johnson yell out. Evans was holding an industrial sized microwave at the time and slipped on a piece of black ice. The microwave landed on Evans’ groin area causing his testicles to obliterate almost instantaneously.

In an even more shocking twist, actor Christian Bale was there at the Recycling Plant dropping off a Christmas Tree. The onscreen tough guy broke down in a panic and pushed Selma Schmid, a 99-year old Holocaust survivor to the ground. Schmid immediately started having chest pains, went into cardiac arrest, and died on the spot.

Charges against Johnson are piling up and the entire Recycling Plant has been shut down pending an investigation. Also charges against Bale were brought up. Bale made slanderous comments about Jewish people in an interview with CNN recently and many speculate that this might’ve been a hate crime that can come off as coincidental.

These opinions are SOLELY those of the FICTIONAL character TRUTH and in no way reflect the OPINIONS and ACTIONS of the author JOE REYES. Just wanted to make sure I have my bases covered because the FICTIONAL character TRUTH will say some pretty controversial and borderline terrible things on the upcoming articles.

Ian Character Info

This whole story started with the creation of Ian, which, was supposed to be a single character story about his journey in this world. Ian is the prototypical “good guy” character. He is that brave, kind, and innocent character that could lead this story. As more and more characters came into the story, Ian became the absolute toughest character to plan for. Which again, sounds odd because he is the one who started this whole journey. Ian isn’t a thug, he doesn’t have any commitments to other characters, he isn’t a soldier, he is just a regular guy. Ian lives in a remade town called Riverfield. It’s a quiet and peaceful community in the middle of the woods. He has a crush on a young woman Carmen, who he has never been able to converse with. They exchange playful glances and have a few words, but are always interrupted by something. Every morning, Ian and a few others go hunting for the town. When they go out, the town gets attacked and the people of the town are taken. Ian makes his fellow hunters pursue the attackers and leads them on a long, every-changing journey. His pursuit for Carmen and the others in his town takes Ian through a gauntlet of several factions and characters. Joe Reyes
