Shadowfall Publications will be bringing out a new collection of my work called DEATHWATCH which is comprised of two new novellas, both set in the 19th century.
In the first work, Dissolution, Stewart Granville is a would-be medical student from the South who's been sent down for drinking and believes he's heading north to Hyde Park, New York to tutor twin girls. Instead, he discovers that his charges, Abby and Eleanor, not only have never been to school of any kind, but that they are Siamese twins their father, a doctor with grandiose dreams, means to separate surgically, taking advantage of Stewart's expertise and his vulnerability--as well as the supernatural forces at work in the house itself.
In The Sheila Na Gig, Tom Smith is on a ship in steerage and bound for New York from his native Ireland after facing down the the constraints imposed by his family, overcoming the loss of his first love, circumventing his grandmother's wiles and occult knowledge, and trying to save his younger, mentally challenged sister, Delia, from both witchcraft and sexual abuse.
The collection, to be released the second week of December 2010, will be available in all E Book formats (and even if you don't have an E reader you can purchase it and read it on your computer. Moreover, Shadowfall guarantees that no matter where you purchase any of their titles or whichever reader you use down the line, they will ensure you have copies of the book(s) formatted for that reader--and at no additional charge.
