Announcing My New Novella

I am happy to announce that my new horror novella, Cthulhu's Car Park, is available for pre-order over at Amazon.  At the moment, it's only going to be available as a Kindle eBook, but I'm hoping to have a paperback ready to go in the near future.  It's set to release on September 6, 2018, but it may come out sooner than that.

Cthulhu's Car Park is about Sam, a parking lot attendant on the edge of burning out.  Her job is monotonous, the customers are rude and management is out of touch.

One night, while going to clean up yet another puddle of puke, Sam discovers something evil in the basement of the parking garage.

Armed with a golf club, some pluck and a handful of co-workers, Sam realizes she needs to face down something sinister and mind-blowingly massive and save the city, if not the world.

So, this story is loosely autobiographical, though heavily fictionalized.  I tried to draw from my experiences as a parking garage attendant to give the more realistic parts of the story a bit more detail.  I also tried to capture the culture of that particular job, so there's definitely some strong language present.

And while it's a horror story, it's not overly gory, or intensely scary.  I'm trying to entertain, not scare you into sleeping with the lights on. 

It doesn't adhere to the Lovecraftian mythos very strictly either.  I took some tropes from his work and work related and extrapolated them, so please don't go in thinking this is going to be cannon.  It's meant to be fun.  An idea I kicked around while dealing with a real, creepy parking garage basement and an incredibly boring job.
