The Greatest Escape Artist of All Time is Trapped. 

And he thinks I have the key...

After our adventure with Mark Twain, I'd hoped Bones and I were out of the ghost hunting business for good.

But a crafty magician has other plans. Houdini himself is stuck between worlds, and Bones can't wait to help him.

When the mysterious Reaper666 is added to our crew and we come up against a powerful vengeful spirit, it's not just Houdini's afterlife on the line. 

We better have some fantastic tricks up our sleeves, or we're going to all end up imprisoned with Houdini.

Or worse. 

Houdini's Curse is the follow up adventure to Twain's Treasure, the fast-paced ghost story that School Library Journal decreed "Themes of ghosts, adventure, and friendship abound in this fast-paced story. Sure to be a delight for young readers and a good choice for most shelves."

Stretch goal 

We are also thrilled to announce that for every $50 over our base funding, Dreaming Robot Press will donate a pair of books to a library. Let's help get those books out there by pledging today with one of our fantastic reward options below!  

We look forward to hearing from you soon and welcoming you to the adventure. Share the legend with your friends and family, and help spread the magical word!

Risks and challenges

The manuscript for Houdini's Curse is completed, and the lovely cover art is done as well.

We've done several publishing campaigns before, and have never been late delivering books to backers! (knock wood :) )
