BOXED // Flash Fiction

A flash fiction piece, entitled, BOXED:

Dreamed you we here. It was a beautiful fall day, much like yesterday and today’s promise. Blue sky, trees orange, grass still shocking green. Oddly, you were wearing my red coat from when I’d backpacked Europe at 21. Plus your own black shades. In your hand you carried a perfect antique crystal tumbler to hold a gin and ice. It was frosted against the warm day. You emerged from my back yard through the fence I’d built and were talking, as if picking up a conversation we had already begun. You said, “...But broken people aren’t worth a damn in this world. Everyone sees them as nothing but a costly burden.” I was wheeling my garbage bin out to the street. You said, “The world puts broken stuff in there,” gesturing to the bin with a slosh of your ornate glassware. Considering, I said, “That hurts my feelings a little. And it should hurt yours. You’re broken. I’m broken. And yet, here we are. Outside the box. Standing on our two legs, each.” Unseen in the distance, the garbage truck shifted gears and rumbled.

THALO BLUE - Available Now!

Today marks the re-launch of my second novel for its second edition. I couldn't be more excited to share it with you. It's the first time this lengthy novel is available in a trade paperback print edition, as well as all electronic formats for nearly every electronic book reader out there. This includes Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Android devices and most every other.

THALO BLUE is a warped, mind-bender of a character piece about a young man who has had one of the most unique gifts bestowed upon him: a second chance at life. Looking back as if his short life is flashing before his eyes, we get to see what has made him who he is. We also discover who might want to take everything away and why.

The official synopsis:

Sebastion Redfield's home is breached by a trespasser in an explosive confrontation early one winter morning. In the aftermath, Sebastion begins to unravel a more disturbing truth about the attack: that someone or something has been hunting him. His ordeal is not over. 
Sebastion may be the only person alive able to challenge the mysterious "thief." This figure is unstoppable, even by death it seems, and he wants something that only Sebastion possesses. Now, to save his own life, he and a mysterious new ally must dredge up his dark, painful past for clues as to who or what the relentless thief may be. 
What begins in the Redfield home during that icy face-off carries their terrifying dance across a city and a continent, across the decades of Sebastion's life, and even into the impossible depths of his afterlife. 
Part literary noir, part mystery, and part horror, THALO BLUE is touted as "Jason McIntyre's most complex, multi-layered, and disturbing work" to date.

Dovetail Cove Mosaic Novel Complete!

Okay, so, here's the deal. When I set out to write NINE novels and novellas in a mosaic patchwork designed to bring one giant tale to completion, it was daunting, crazy and foolish. And, yet, somehow I've done it.

Now all titles are available from the original plan. But don't worry! There is one more -- a final, stand-alone novel that will tie everything together.

These are the nine in the original mosaic. You can get them at the link below. And the tenth will shake everything up as a giant ending to the whole Dovetail Cove Saga. Thanks for reading!

All books available now > > > Amazon

SHED gets a new cover!

My second-released title, SHED, gets a new paint job today. I'm really pumping hard to get several Dovetail Cove titles out and they are all looking fresh and new so I thought it was time to give this book--which is a favourite of many readers--a slicker, newer look. It nicely matches the style of the rest now.

SHED was first released in 2010 and tells the story of Simon and Rupert Ketwood, who are trapped in a lonely life north of the island town of Dovetail Cove. They're poor, but they don't want for they don't really know they are, until they see the other kids in school with new shoes and new bikes. Simon and Rupe are content to play out in the back field between their own yard and the old power station, but at night, a visitor comes for them.

Between this and dealing with their Mama's new husband, life is getting hard for these two young boys. But their existence is not all horror. There is beauty in Dovetail Cove for the boys too. Set in 1977 in the world of Dovetail Cove, this novella is one of faith, brotherhood and courage. Grab a copy and learn what the bond of brotherly love means for Simon and Rupert.
