Ghosts, Vampires, and American History...

Firebringer Take Two combines Steven H. Wilson's vampire tale, FREEDOM'S BLOOD with Phil Giunta's paranormal mystery, LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS in the format of the classic ACE doubles (read one story, flip the book over and read the other!). 

In LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS, fans and new readers will see the return of psychic-medium single mom Miranda Lorensen from Phil's previous novels (Testing the Prisoner and By Your Side)... and this time, she's bringing her daughter. Here's a quick blurb:   

After her lover is found murdered during a paranormal investigation, Andrea Lorensen is determined to find the killer—with some help from her lover’s ghost. Meanwhile, her mother Miranda travels to Salem, Massachusetts where she reunites with the gentle spirit of a young woman executed for witchcraft in 1692. This time, however, the encounter reveals an astonishing truth about Miranda's past life—a truth that could kill her. 

But wait! There's more! 

You’re a vampire, but you have an unyielding belief in the sanctity of the individual’s rights. How do you survive, if you can’t take blood without permission? And what do you do when someone offers you his blood… with strings attached? This humorous tale explores the ethics of being a vampire—or even just a creature that’s gotta eat—against the background of a developing America. Starting out in Colonial Maryland and carrying on through the 21st Century, FREEDOM'S BLOOD will perhaps amuse, perhaps enrage, and will certainly introduce you to a vampire like none you’ve ever encountered. 

The goal of our Kickstarter is to raise funds to cover the costs of producing the book such as editing, formatting, cover art, layout, set up fees, etc. 

We hope you’ll take the time to browse the reward levels we’re offering and consider sponsoring our publication. We’ll post updates here every so often, including excerpts from both novellas, so keep checking back. 

We appreciate your support of indie authors. Thank you! 

Risks and challenges

Risks are minimal, as both novellas are complete, edited and ready for publication. We are developing the book block now, and awaiting one of the two cover paintings. The other is complete. The pending painting will be done by one of our repeat artists, the amazing Caio Cacau, so we have no concerns about completion. This will be Firebringer's 12th published book--not our first rodeo!
