My third book is finally out. It has been a long road to get it published under the weirdness our world experienced last year, but I’m so happy it is out and ready to be read by those who enjoy social satire about human nature and how odd it can be. Mechanics of the Past is a book about the industrial revolution and the complexities of family affairs.
“What he had done was pure science and mechanics — and necromancy, he regrettably had to admit.”
Levi, an alchemist and inventor, is trying to make the machine of all machines, which can produce gold and wheat out of nothingness. He is willing to get his machine to work at all costs. It is just that gods, the Luddites, and his little sister see things differently.
Sigourney is going home. She would rather run to the edge of the world than meet her family, especially her brother. They, and her as well, have always thought her to be a bad penny. Sigourney is going to change that. She is going to show what bad pennies can do.
Rose, a banker, has fled from Necropolis to Threebeanvalley in hopes of a fresh, prosperous start. But it isn’t easy to run away from your past. Especially when you are addicted to gambling, and you are dipping into your bank’s money. She needs a machine-sized fix.
All of them are swimming against luck, trying to get what they want, preferably while still alive.
Mechanics of the Past is a satire about families and the industrial revolution. Contains gods, steam engines, siblings, and introverts.
Thank you for all of you! Without you this book wouldn’t be here. You keep me writing ❤
