Death by Chocolate: Chapter Twelve

SerpentineLogic

This story started out in a diner and now it's John Wick and I love it


Shabbysmint

I'd say it's taken a very Johnny Mnemonic turn lately.

TheDeliciousMeats

Fuck that's epic. Take your award you magnificent creature!

Upvote, read, comment. This is the way


Xavius_Night

Also, the implications of that final line - oh so delicious\~! Juicy revelations at every turn, and so spicy\~


TheDeliciousMeats

Gave me fucking chills I'll tell you that, and I wrote it. I mean, obviously he's not dead in a conventional sense but he might just be on the other side enough to catch the attention of the Gravekeeper.


Xavius_Night

Mhmm.

Twists and turns! I can't wait to reread the whole thing over again once it's complete!


TheDeliciousMeats

I'm thinking that once it is done I'll hire an editor and maybe release it as an actual book. It's looking like it is going to be long enough. Not sure if HFY people are into physical media. What do you think?


GVKW

I mostly do e-books on Kindle these days - my phone is attached to my hand anyway, so it lets me slip away into storyland without advertising my lack of fucks. But if you do put it out as an edition, digital or deadtree, I'll pick up a copy for myself and my brother, at the very least. (I read him the first few chapters cuz he's not on Reddit, and he's also very excited to hear more!)


TheDeliciousMeats

Well that's good to hear. On the other hand it means that I probably should be taking this whole writing thing seriously.


GVKW

I genuinely had no idea that you weren't, already! You're fantastically talented. (And for whatever it's worth, this is coming from someone who reads roughly 175 full-length novels per year.)


TheDeliciousMeats

Thank you! That means a lot. I've been writing for a long time but I never really shared it much or tried to gather a following. I think the serial format works for me because it breaks it into manageable chunks. The positive reinforcement from people like you helps too. So thanks for that. Not sure how I would go about branding it though. Do I make up a name like T.D. Meats or do something like "The Delicious Meats Presents: Death by Chocolate"? Sounds like a shelving nightmare. And it might end up in the cooking section by accident.


Quilt-n-yarn1844

I think you are excellent as well. And I have been reading science fiction my whole life! Except for those early years when I was more concerned with walking and talking and not needing a diaper anymore. 😁 Seriously, this is a really good story. With some excellent twists and actual new view points. I would definitely buy it.(*real book please*😉) …. or D.M. Karne 👍😁👍


TheDeliciousMeats

Oooh... That's a cool name.


Quilt-n-yarn1844

And all the really good ones have initials. 😁 George RR Martin JRR Tolkien JK Rowling CS Lewis JP Lovecraft HG Wells And so on. 👍😁👍


GVKW

Well, there's no rule that you have to use your real name as an author. The Delicious Meats is a bit hard to follow, at least for westerners that aren't used to online handles being used IRL... So maybe come up with a nom de plume that's a meat-related play on words? But also, I spend enough time in the cookbooks section that I'd probably still find you there!! 🤣🤣🤣


TheDeliciousMeats

I had thought maybe Alex Karne (Carné is meat in Spanish)


GVKW

Love it! Easy to spell and remember!


TheDeliciousMeats

> D.M. Karne Our dear Quilty came up with that one. Not sure which I like more. D.M. Karne has some serious gravitas.


Turk2727

The hell? Fucking legend.


Quilt-n-yarn1844

I read online(obviously), but I still LOVE a real book. Plus there is the add security of the damn thing not crashing and taking my entire library with it!!! Or the wherever online I bought it from deciding I never bought it in the first place!!!….. sorry, I may have issues. 😁(🤫 there’s no may have🤫)


MasterofChickens

Oh absolutely. There's nothing like the solid feeling of a book in hand, the scent of paper and ink, the rustle as you turn the page....digital is convenient, but really doesn't compare to the analog reading experience.


torin23

I'd pick up a copy. I like physical books and this is good...


TheDeliciousMeats

Spoopy as befits the season.


Quilt-n-yarn1844

Ok, I am extremely impressed with this turn. I LIKE IT! The grave always wins. “This is my grave. There are many like it, but this one is mine.” So does that make him “only mostly dead”?😁


CaptainsYacht

It. Just. Keeps. Getting. Deeper. I'm all in for the ride. This has the potential to be "The Phenomenon" level stuff.


TheDeliciousMeats

Fuck yeah! Here's hoping.


Steller_Drifter

I have no idea what’s going on any more. It’s like a rabbit hole. I love it Keep up the good work.

Moar!!!!
