Blood and Brume, by Maki Morris

Sixteen-year-old Ellie Porter is done with life.

When one of her mom's boyfriends tries to rape her, Ellie runs away, determined never to return. But Sam, Ellie's only friend, is not about to let her end up another runaway living on the streets.

He takes Ellie to an abandoned house, the perfect hideout, or so they think until a series of frightening experiences cause Ellie to regret ever stepping into the house in the first place.

She is consumed with fear when two young men in 19th-century costume appear at the house claiming to be its owners. Ellie's initial assumption of them being Steampunk enthusiasts quickly proves wrong when she learns that they are ghosts.

The encounter marks the beginning of unimaginable changes in Ellie's life. As the portal opens between the flesh and spirit world, Ellie awakens to the profound realization that unresolved life can transcend time and space. There will be no peace until it is rectified.

Publisher: The Parliament House


Katherine Garnet is a writer who has never cared much about much, making it awfully difficult to create new content. Despite the fact she has the “edge” of being trans (according to her cis male editor) she is not looking to capitalize on her own personal story. Garnet tries to sneak a peek at her rival, August Prather’s, latest fantasy manuscript about a quest for the elixir of life. While reading, Garnet gets accidently dragged into a bizarre cross-country road trip that may or may not have a purpose and begins to see parallels in the story of the manuscript and the reality of their journey. Along the way, they encounter a parade of equally troubled individuals, including ghost-hunting priests, a robot magician, a discarded piece of furniture, a runaway teenager, and a Japanese rock star. As Garnet confronts her past, she begins to understand why someone might want to live forever.
