Pale in Comparison Chapter Two
Countess D'Lione found Benedict despite his best efforts, and had cornered him off of the main hall. She'd caught on quickly to the limp he tried to hide. To say she could be a mother hen at times was an understatement. It was only by her grace, and that of her children, that life of the castle-thralls was tolerable. She had her hands on once bountiful hips which had withered with age. Her hair had once been a lustrous black, but was not streaked with grey. There was still a regal beauty to the cast of her face, untarnished even by wrinkles. Her hazel eyes were flecked with gold, and brimmed with concerned anger. "How many times have I told y

Pale in Comparison Chapter One
     Benedict's tunic felt like he'd just used it to pull a meat pie from the oven instead of daring to be outside at the tail end of July. It had been a brutal summer, and if not for the hard breeze sweeping down from the Violet Mountains utterly uncomfortable. As it was the air carried with it a heady scent of summer crops and the faintest reminder of winter's chill. He cut through the fields, using a haphazard and dilapidated stone fence as a guide.

Industrialized Romance
Industrialized Romance The fog rolls in at quitting time - Battered cap at my feet. Five pence earned by a daily grind - Maybe enough to eat. Wind-up monkey on my shoulder, Zeppelins float in the sky. Steeples struggle to pierce the smog - Crosses hide as if shy. God is dead, and Darwin killed him. Though, Nietzsche had a hand Natural selection reigns now - Blame it for where I stand. Tuneless tin drum revolves once more, Phony primate dances. Passing children laugh, hop, and point Dads give side-long glances. For I am a beggar by trade - Musician by proxy. A fellow neither blind nor lame - My burden is boxy. Soon enough

Victory Garden - Synop
In the After Times humanity lives in a world shattered by disaster and reclaimed by both Nature and things most unnatural. The Others, as they are called, resemble creatures of legend or are horrors spawned by science gone mad! Still Mankind is nothing if not a stubborn beast and has managed to claw their way back to some level of civilization. Our tale takes place in a region known as Wuthering where several cities and towns have bound together in defense against threats human and inhuman. A young woman must keep a promise her father made in haste to a terror left over from before the Fall by travelling into the very den of the elder horror

My Bio
Zachary O’Shea was born in the refinery belt of California and raised in the stark desolation and neon of Nevada. When not trying to avoid one armed bandits and the tides of tourists he enjoys various activities: running and occasionally playing table-top RPGs of all sorts, reading, writing, war gaming, M:TG, WoW and eating out too often with great friends. You know all the nerdy stuff. He thinks cats are the best but adores dogs too, and fish aren’t so bad either.

Mr. O’Shea – or really Zack to just about everyone – has always been a storyteller. For a good portion of his life a writer too. The Last Slice Studios was conceived not only to be a platform for his work but to become a place for friends and associates who he knows have a great deal of talent to offer up pieces of their imagination as well.

He also loathes Oreos.

And today is the day I am a published author!
Sure, its a small press direct publication but after a few years of getting polite rote rejections back it feels good to be slotted somewhere. Just, amazing! http://www.amazon.com/Carnage-After-End-Volume-ebook/dp/B00A850WHS/ref=tmm_kin_title_0

Nano again....
Wow that is sort of scary to see that my last journal post was Nano for 2011! How time flies as you get older I suppose. This year I'm throwing my hat in the ring, along with thousands of others, and hoping this time I can find it again at the end of the month! We'll see how that goes. With any luck I'll be putting up regular updates on here and on my personal blog. Best of luck to everyone that is participating! Keep a pen always in hand. Zack

NaNoWriMo
Well, NaNoWriMo has started and so far so good. We're on to day two and I'm about to start writing for the afternoon. This is the first year that I'm trying out the contest and I hope that it works out pretty well. I think that the novel I'm working on Victory Garden, will be pretty fun to write. I wish everyone trying NaNoWrrMo this year the best of luck! Happy Writing. Feel free to writing buddy me too. http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/participants/eshutales/novels/victory-garden1 http://www.lastslicestudios.com/vg/
