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.

Just a reminder!

I'll be there, you guys.  With bells on!  (metaphorically, at least).
And I'm going to lead a panel discussion on self publishing!

Come on out for a fun day, won't you?

Book Lover's Bazaar: CHANGE OF VENUE!

Couple of updates here!

First, the Workhouse location in Lorton has been changed.  SO I'll be here instead:

(Location changed, everything else is the same!)

ALSO I've been invited to moderate a panel about self publishing so THAT is really exciting!  I've never done that before and am reading up on what makes a great panel discussion.  Reading up a LOT on what is expected of a moderator, too.  Seems that rule number 1 is "don't be a tool".  So that's nice.  Egad I'm excited.

Book number 2 is well on the way, too.  All the text is written, we've done a first-pass proofread or three and we're ironing out the last of the kinks.  Getting some great illustrations in there too.

ANYWAY, stalkers and beloved minions alike, I look forward to meeting up with you in September!
I do hope to see you there!

Publicity Stunt!

Ha, not so much a stunt, really, but we can certainly put it in the PUBLICITY column!

I'll be signing/selling copies of my book at the Book Lover's Bazaar this year in Lorton, VA.

Come on out and say 'ello, won't ya?  I'd love to see you there.
