The Story Behind the Book

 When I started this project, I didn’t plan on writing a series. It was an assignment during one of my college courses. I had to write a Flash Fiction piece that was at least 200 words and less than 1000 words. 

Accordingly, the original piece was about a man who sat at a bus stop and observed people passing on their way to work. He watched birds, business people, busses, convertibles, smoke from sewer grates, and gum on the pavement as far as the eye could see. I wrote an epiphany, and then his bus arrived. The observer boarded, and the story ended for that moment. 

Years later, I dusted off a notebook and decided to expand the story. I mixed in villains, conspiracies, mind-control, and a Dark Moon City to spice things up.  


The city bus wreaked of day-old marijuana and a hundred perfumed bodies wrestling to control the trapped air. James Hanon sat in the back of the bus and observed each passenger as they entered and sat down. When Moriah Norwood entered, the bus was nearly at capacity, but she found a seat by herself. 

The command prompt, <cmd>liberty-or-death<\cmd> flashed through Hanon’s mind, and he gawked at the other passengers as held back the action of the program. It wasn’t time, he thought as he struggled not to rise from his seat.

The bus rinded to a halt. A man, who was reading a book at a bus stop, boarded. Hanon watched him walk down the aisle and sit in the last empty seat, the one next to the lone woman. The buzzing in his mind was unbearable. The time was now.
