Rosemary is releasing her awesome book, Blank Mastermind! So excited! It will be out December 13th. Read my post than go see her awesome blog writefury.
Okay this a short scene from Blank Mastermind enjoy, then go get her book.
One more thing... I thought this was kind of a cool place to introduce some of the other characters.By the way Wolfgang is the narrator, a guy with amnesia; a mastermind who doesn't want to be a mastermind.
A short scene from Part 4 Going for a drive....
“Introduce me to the gang.” I adjusted the mirror so it focused on the car behind
us. It was still a ways back, but I could make out general outlines if I squinted.
“Ho boy.” News took a quick look over his shoulder, then looked forward and
rubbed his hands together. “Roy’s the kid driving with the toothpick in his teeth. Spiky
hair and sunglasses. You see ‘im?”
“He’s usually sort of the assigned getaway driver, since he’s the best at ignoring
speed limits. Been driving since his foot could reach the pedal without breaking the
moisture seal on his diaper.” Bad News pushed his hat back a little. “Correct me if I’m
wrong, but I think you’ve known him the longest?”
I wasn’t really in the position to correct anything, so I kept quiet, filing away the
information on the person in the driver’s seat behind us. The car started to veer a little

“Mechanic for . . .?”
The giant didn’t seem to hear me. He glanced over his shoulder again. “Chris is
the older guy with the cowboy hat. He . . . talks to you and shoots stuff and swears a lot, I
Oh yippee. Sounded like a productive role.
“And Cardboard is the little girl with the orange shirt and the big hair.”
It took effort not to veer the car off the road while I stared at the dark-skinned,
tiny child in the rearview mirror. The oldest she could possibly be was seven.
“Is there . . . a reason she’s named Cardboard?”
Bad News shrugged. “She’s Roy’s kid. Roy likes naming things weird. And he
found her in a dumpster marked ‘Cardboard Only’, so he thought it would be pretty funny
to name her that.”
I looked over the faces again as the car got closer. The hotshot getaway car driver
. . . the turquoise haired mechanic . . . the sour-faced cowboy . . . and the little girl named

rather not be a criminal. Which left me the task of trying to convince them not to kill an
innocent teenage boy I’d already shot once.
Look up “predicament” in the dictionary. I’m pretty sure you’ll see some
reference to this situation.
Holy. Freaking. Smoke. I’ll have a mutiny on my hands. I’ll get Dallas killed. I’ll
get me killed. What am I doing . . .?
My head pounded and I tried not to hyperventilate. Think . . . there’s got to be
something to do . . .
Roy pushed his sunglasses up on his forehead and waved, pointing to the side of
Out of time.➽➽➽➽➽➽➽
