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

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!

Hey everyone, it's great to be here. I recently added a blog post here about my debut novel Gloomy Ruins Everything here and I would be eternally grateful if you'd check it out! If you're looking for some commercial fiction with a unique plot and creepy-cute characters, and you think the idea of analyzing the darker side of being a "living toy" sounds really intriguing, then you might just have found your new favorite book!

I am wondering if any writers here can help me with understanding something. I am currently writing something, a story and i have come to the issue of POV and a protagonist is there anyone here who i can talk with about my issue i am having, I fear it may be to big a topic to discuss though comments. Help is greatly needed and would be appreciated by a more seasoned author.

Have you tried to use Stash.Write?
superallison20 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
no what is it?
MassEffectTony Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015
At the top of the page is a toolbar that has "SUBMIT" on it. Roll over it so you get the drop menu and click the second option, it should be

Once you get in there, on the write should be an option that says "Compose in Stash Writer". Click on that then you can write or copy/paste your work there and submit it. You'll have to pick a few options here and there, but they're pretty self-explanatory...

Hope this helps!!
