The FEAST Begins!

feast-header

Do you have a strange and uncontrollable hunger for raw bacon?

Are you afflicted by a desire to wear, and/or consume sweatpants with “juicy” on the back side?

Do you wonder if your annoying neighbors taste delicious?

If you answered “yes” or “maybe” to these questions, you might have been exposed to the RC-714 gene released in my novel, Hunger. I’m sorry to say, the transformation you will soon endure will not be a pleasant one. Not only will you rapidly evolve, accessing long dormant genes, but you’ll be struck by a relentless hunger that will have you eating until you burst, or until those annoying neighbors eat you, and then each other and then everyone else on the block, whilst transforming into something that’s no longer identifiable as human.

If none of this sounds familiar to you, then you need to read Hunger, like right now! If you have read Hunger, good news, Feast – Book II of the Hunger Series, is available today!

Of course it wasn’t until later that they realized I couldn’t hear the sound of my own voice, so I hollered like a person wearing headphones, not that I know what that’s like.

But I would.

The treatment I underwent was new and like the day I was born, I was second in line. The first to try it turned out to be less healthy than the first millennium baby, though. Doctors said he had some kind of disorder, something wrong in his mind that the operation triggered. They told me that what happened to him was an accident; that it had nothing to do with the procedure. I believed them, but I’ve never heard of suicide referred to as an accident.
