Esprit de Corpse

Jacqueline Marie-Claire Duval and her sister Angélique Laforge are the twins of Bellesfées.

Jacqueline is a brilliant engineer in 1843 France.

 

Angélique gave up her career as a virtuoso

pianist when a vicious assault made her a shape-shifting wolf.

 

Together, they must stop Count Draganov Dragul and his sorcerer from animating the bones of the Paris Catacombs to create a clockwork army of revenants.

Coming in November from eSpec Books

Jacqueline ducked her head to avoid the Paris prefect’s cynical gaze as he examined Jacqueline’s papers. The platform of Gare d’Austerlitz teemed with travelers anxious to board. They glared at Jacqueline, blaming her for the delay. Even the shiny green locomotive’s blasts of steam accused her with each passing minute. 


She reached down to scratch behind the ear of the she-wolf beside her. The wolf’s eyes closed in delight. Jacqueline squatted down to whisper, “This is the third time this year I’ve had to rescue you from your own indiscretions, Angélique. Next time, I’ll let you sit in jail.”

Conspiracy & Cryptids

An anthology exploring the devious and the discovered

Coming soon. Look for our announcement!

From "Passing Thoughts":

Every damned time Aileen drove the Jersey Turnpike south, the three witches blocked her. Never in the same cars. Sometimes tractor-trailers, sometimes motorcycles, but always three, side by side, as if they clasped taloned hands across the lanes. Aileen was fairly certain they cackled while she chafed, trying to pass and failing. 


Aileen figured it was some kind of conspiracy. They were the same three drivers, and they had to be women because no man had that kind of patient, sadistic tenacity to drive a single mile below the speed limit from Exit 10 to Exit 4. It made no difference if she took the cars-only lanes or the trucks-and-cars lanes, even through the merging of the two tracks; while Aileen’s temper bubbled, bubbled, toiled, and troubled, three witches cursed Aileen’s drive home in a relentless blockade that prevented anyone from passing.
