About the Book

Invention, research, and a thirst for progress fueled the academic environments of the Victorian world. In this story, a scientist has moved to the mountains of Colorado in order to discover a feature of silver that would allow it to recover from both the bimetallism decisions and the value-crushing Coinage Act of 1873.

Our scientist, Nathan, is confident that a careful application of pure silver (among other elements) will allow him to capture and analyze a human soul. When his experiments reach a crescendo, and his wife’s life is at stake, Nathan finds himself quite unprepared for the outcome. An ancient earth-spirit waits nearby to add to his consternation.

A century later, two sisters come to the depleted mining town in the hopes of owning and running a bed and breakfast.

The house they choose used to belong to our intrepid scientist.
They chose it specifically because it was rumored to be haunted.
They had no idea just how haunted it would turn out to be.

40 Pounds of AWESOME

Signed Copies NOW AVAILABLE!

Oh how exciting it is, my gentle minions, to order a load of books and have them all arrive at once!  All in one perfectly sized box.  And it weighed a LOT!

Actually, I just ordered a load of my OWN books, and they arrived...  so now I can start fulfilling all of these orders for signed copies.  You all continue to honor me with your support and I am eager to send these out to you as quickly as my little fingers can. 

It should take about three days for the shipments to get to you, but they're on the way as of 8am tomorrow morning. 

Plans are brewing for the book signing in Idaho Springs too.  AND for a similar (though more casual) event to perhaps include some sort of byogrillables and some laid-back summery outdoorsy-ness.  This second event will be in the Denver area.  More deets as soon as a location is chosen.

Looking forward to seeing you!
Looking forward to signing your book for you!

Available Now!

Well gang, it's available.  You can find it on Amazon and everything.  It would appear that the information is slowly being updated, so there are still a few kinks out there to be worked out.  The e-book function is a little choppy for my audiences out there in the Pacific, and I can imagine it might not be ironed out for my European public yet, either.

The paper version is still gumming up the presses at Xlibris, so we'll have to all sit on our hands and wait for that to get sorted in another week or two.  Okay, so I actually don't know if it's jammed or not - but I am having one helluva time being NOT self-depricating right now so bear with me as I wrestle as diplomatically as possible with my rapture and my cellular programming of shyness.

*ahem*  where were we?

Ah yes. 

Amazon:  Search my name and there we are!
Barnes and Noble: myeh, not up yet
Xlibris: erm...  could use a little catching up...  but it's there allright!

And for all you salty nuts out there longing for a paper copy of your very own WITH a signature inside it, I'll have those available too.  In time for the holidays.
But, you know, later on. 

Look, gang, I don't even have MY first copy yet.  So please continue to come with me on this awesome and sparkly journey through time and space as we wait for this book to get all printed up and glued together and finally delivered to our sticky little hands. 

Shouldn't take long.   Not long at all now.
