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.

Yup - National Novel Writing Month.

In 2009, as we all know, I entered this "contest" on a dare to see if I could finish something.  Well, here we are today and I'll be darned if I'm not going to start it allllll over again tomorrow with a brand new novel and a brand new month of insanity!

My goal is (of course) 50,000 words by the end of November. 

I did it once before.
I can do it again.

I had a great story pretty well fleshed out in my mind last time.
I have a sort of squashy story fairly loosely lumped together in various parts of the noggin this time.

Let's just see what happens, shall we?

UPDATE! 12/01/2012
Expect another book publishing event in about 12ish months!
