I’m very happy to announce that after months of delays, Cindy’s Story has finally been published. This is the first book I’ve written outside of the Unseen Things series, and it’s an entirely different genre. This one is more of a private detective comedy / romantic comedy / drama / mystery. I know, that’s a lot to get into one book, but I really focused a lot on the comedy in this one, and there are several scenes that include some of the funniest stuff I’ve ever written.
I’m really proud of how this story played out, and I can’t wait for people to read it. You can get it online at Smashwords, Amazon, Google Play, OmniLit, and soon at most of the other online retailers as well. You can also get it here on the official site. There’s a print version coming soon as well from CreateSpace, but I still have to work on the cover for it. I’ll post a separate announcement when it’s available. A new trivia section has been added for my standalone novels in the Books & Author Info section of the site, and the trivia for Cindy’s Story has been added to it.
Synopsis: After walking out on yet another convenience store job, Cindy needed to find herself a new job as quickly as possible, otherwise she was going to end up broke and living on the street. Her apartment manager informed her that his brother, a private investigator, was looking for an assistant, so he offered to make a call for her to see if he could arrange an interview. With no other prospects, she jumped at the chance for not only quick employment, but also a new career that would get her out of the convenience store business once and for all.
As it turns out, being a private detective isn’t as glamorous as they make it look on television. It comes with certain indignities and moral issues that she’d never really considered before she applied for the position. Not only that, but Frank, her boss, seems to delight in pissing her off. The only thing he seems to enjoy more than pissing her off is complaining about how horrible her coffee is, yet for some reason that she can’t quite seem to figure out, he goes out of his way to help her succeed in any way that he possibly can. Then she’s got his sister Kayla to deal with. She’s like a nightmare on wheels with no empathy and no filter whatsoever, so you never know what’s going to come out of her mouth next.
The one thing Cindy’s got going for her is that she’s got a super high aptitude for the job, so all she needs to do in order to succeed is to learn how to control her temper, work hard, and most importantly…learn how to make a decent cup of coffee. The first two are relatively simple, but the third…not so much.
