After struggling to find work, nerdy Michelle partners with her musclehead brother Bryan to start Creampuffs: a gym for people who hate gyms. But first they have to renovate a creepy warehouse leased to them by their shady Uncle Gary–who might have his own plans for the space.
Inspired by a friend’s distress with “typical” workouts, Michelle wants the gym to be friendly to ultra-beginners. But since building a community involves more than handing out flyers, she’ll need to learn on her feet amidst dodgy renovations, improvising fitness classes, and telling her parents she’s gambled her savings on a dream.
Mysterious contractors, a brush with the law, and a cute cafe owner—Michelle’s already worked up a sweat and Creampuffs hasn’t even opened yet!
Creampuffs is a cute and playful nerdcom, currently in search of a publisher. If you’d like to read the first three chapters, please email me!
