Control Room released

The Control Room, my 12,000 horror story is now available as an ebook!

Control Room 333x500

The Locked Door Series is MuseItUp Publishing’s version of the Twilight Zone. Each short story stands alone, is written by a different author, and is meant to make you keep the lights on when you go to bed. In this story, recent college graduate Bethany finds herself living back at home and facing a mountain of school loans.

To make ends meet, Bethany accepts a job watching live footage from a supposedly haunted building. The owner wants them to find evidence of the ghost he believes killed his daughter decades before.

As the days progress and Bethany spends more time watching the residents of the apartment, she finds herself drawn deeper into the history of the building and the lives of its people.

When strange occurrences begin stacking up, Bethany suspects something paranormal may be happening in the old apartment building after all. Can she distance herself in time, or has the watcher already fallen under the apartment’s spell?

Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, the iTunes bookstore, Smashwords, MuseItUp Publishing, and lots more.

The Control Room pre-order

My upcoming horror ebook The Control Room is now available for pre-order at MuseItUp Publishing’s newly revamped bookstore. Check it out here. If you pre-order, you won’t have to remember when it’s released (Oct. 11) and you save 50 cents. Pretty good deal.

A note on the bookstore: because of confusion with customers having multiple devices, if you buy any of their ebooks, you get access to the file in all platform types. So no one will accidentally buy it as a kindle if they want it on their iPad and then have to buy it again.

Another four star review

Just wanted to share a four star review I got on The Locked Door from Readers’ Favorite:

“The Locked Door by Troy H. Gardner is the story of a day off gone wrong, very wrong. Real estate agent Nina gets called in by her boss to cover for another agent who simply did not turn up. Nina has to show a house that had been occupied by a rather unusual person to a couple but they discover a door in the basement that cannot be opened because Nina does not have the right key. Nina finds this quite odd as the key should have been on the key-ring she had received from her boss. The couple who is interested in the house would also like to know more about why the house is so cheap and who lived in there before. Nina promised to find out and a visit to the neighbor of the house brings a few interesting details to light. But what is behind that door and why did the other agent really disappear?

The Locked Door is a story that can be read in one go and most likely every reader will do just that. The writing flows well and the reader will also be very interested in learning about the former inhabitant and the secret behind the door and how it will influence the day that was supposed to be Nina’s day off. Troy H. Gardner wrote a really nice story that entertains the reader and makes you want to read more like that. I also liked the fact that his ending is a classic horror book ending (the kind of ending that makes you think “What? And now? Really?”) even though the book itself isn’t that scary. ”

You can also check out The Locked Door on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

New horror story contracted!

I recently signed a contract at MuseItUp Publishing for my short horror book The Control Room. For those who said, “I liked The Locked Door, but it was too short,” then you’ll be pleased to know The Control Room is a few thousand words longer. It’s scheduled for release shortly before Halloween.

More on the story in a few months. And for those waiting for Tunnelville (Mad World, Book Two), things are progressing nicely for our probable June release. More on that front soon.
