Cold Turkey available to buy

So, Cold Turkey is now available to buy here

So far nobody hates it; in fact there have been some very lovely blurbs:

"Cold Turkey is rich with nightmarish invention. Johnstone has created a very distinctive villain with the sinister top-hatted tally-van man, yet knows when to hold him back to let the other horrors take centre stage. There's an addictive quality to the well-paced prose that makes reading Johnstone's stories a habit you'll never want to kick, and this one's so good it's probably bad for you." © Ray Cluley

"You can tell that Carole has written out of her skin for this novella; how can reading something so dark and insidiously uneasy offer the readers so much pleasure?
Cold Turkey is a hammer and Carole Johnstone will cave your skull in with it. Brilliant." © Johnny Mains

"Carole Johnstone has the canny knack of making the real seem strange and the weird commonplace. In Cold Turkey, addiction and compulsion spiral downwards into imagined and real nightmares. Top Hat, a creation to rival King's Pennywise, rides through the urban Scottish landscape that Johnstone has created with an absolute sense of place. Her laugh out loud humour balances her harshness and puts you off-guard before delivering the final blow; if you get in bed with the devil, he's going to fuck you over at some point." © Priya Sharma

And today, a brill review from DeAnna Knippling of Wonderland Press:
"The writing in Cold Turkey is excellent...An evil little git of a story with an evil little hook at the end.  I enjoyed this very much." © DeAnna Knippling
