The bare-footed man of Bucharest #fanart

August 11, 2011

Anti-Christ?

What is the bare-foot man holding here? Is that our protagonist’s ear?!

The bare-footed man is the antagonist in my science fiction novel about the end times. The very rough first draft starts here: http://wp.me/pbg0R-98

Notes

There are rumors that the bare-footed man collects ears.

main protagonist and antagonist: book of carrot #fanart

A scene from Chapter 1.2 in Book of Carrot, my novel about the end times. READ it here http://wp.me/pbg0R-9B

Notes

In this awesome illustration by freelance web UX and designer John Garrett, the main antagonist (the bare-footed man) has a locking hold on the main protagonist (John).

I’d also like to mention that John Garrett has the best about page that I have ever seen during my 16 years as an online professional. See it here.

Excerpt

“We’re not thugs. We’re not killers. You and I: we don’t kill,” the barefooted man whispered in John’s ear. “We don’t kill because we’re not takers.”

“But I’ve been waiting for you, John. I’ve seen you in visions and dreams. So here you are!”

John struggled to break free. The bare-footed man replied to John’s struggle with a kiss on the cheek.

“In some of my visions, you’re digging and poking around in the dirt and mud for carrots. Like a pig pushing its nose through the slop!”

“What do you make of that, John-boy? Does God have a sick sense of humor or what?!”

John struggled to break free again. The bare-footed man bit John’s cheek hard – not letting go until John stopped struggling.

“I LOVE THIS BOY’S SPIRIT! WITH THREE BOYS LIKE JOHN, THE WHOLE WORLD WOULD BE MY OYSTER!” he shouted.

Then he whispered in John’s ear.

“You can’t kill me, John…

You’ll try and try. But you always fail. I’ve seen it in visions. Three times, you try. Because without me there’s no you. And without you, there’s no me.”

An Untitled Novel About the Road of Hope: Chapter 1.2

April 17, 2011

Chapter 1.2.1

[ Chapter 1.1 is here. ]

The bare-footed man took a long, hard drag on the cigarette and looked at Zach.

“I lost sons, today. Can I tell you how that makes me feel?! I’m lost! I’m mad as hell! I’m broken.

Do you know what it’s like to be the bad man? The sad man… behind blue eyes?”

“It’s him,” said John. Read the rest of this entry »
