Can I get a fanfare, please?
It is with great pride and satisfaction and manly tears of joy that I announce my debut novel: Gloomy Ruins Everything, is finally up for sale on amazon.com.
Here's the Synopsis:
I've got a question for you: what would you get if Toy Story and Breaking Bad had a baby that was raised by Tim Burton? Well, I think you’d get something like Gloomy Ruins Everything.
If you really think about it, toys have a rough life. They get lost; they get broken, and children quickly outgrow them. For Gloomy things went wrong from day one. He was born with a morbid personality and the dashing good-looks of a chainsaw sculpture. The adorably awkward fellow wants nothing more than to make friends and find a child that will play with him. It’s too bad then that he gives everyone the heebie-jeebies!
However, when a kind-hearted girl named Chloe rescues Gloomy, he starts to believe that things are finally going his way. He is sorely mistaken. Chloe’s beautiful yet bigoted toys exile Gloomy to a junk closet. There, he meets a group of outcasts known as the misfits. They are: Hurtmore, the crazy teddy bear who loves needles, Doggerel the creepy-cute unicorn, Jimbo Junkins the malfunctioning, robot genius, Wednesday the snakelike toy made from a scarf, and Grace, the faceless doll with a wild imagination. They make it their mission to win the affection of Chloe’s toys and launch a crusade of friendship. Unfortunately, despite their good intentions, disaster strikes when Gloomy and the misfits accidentally commit a crime and become suspects in the most adorable murder investigation ever!
Featuring oodles of playroom intrigue, and a dark spin on the “living toy” concept, Gloomy Ruins Everything follows the eponymous character as he struggles to keep from getting caught while inadvertently making everything worse. Along the way, Gloomy might just find his courage, his calling, and a little bit of old-fashioned revenge. Trust me. You haven’t read a story like this before!
