Philomena Sparks

Well, yes finally! My new book is out there, and I am very happy about it. Thanks to Kickstarter, my dream of having this book illustrated came true and as you can see, Adriana Rosario, my illustrator, is extremely happy with the results.

It was only a few days ago that I could hand her own copy, and she loved it!

Now, you may wonder, what is this book all about? Well, it’s the story of Mr. Charles Dewhurst and his father, and the way he developed a machine destined to help out in their business. It is set in Victorian London and it has some Steampunk elements in it. The story is told through Mr. Higgings in the present day, when a peculiar object shows up at the British Museum, where he works as Curator of Artefacts. That’s all I will say about it because I don’t want to ruin it for those who might like to read it. The novel has a total of 9 chapters, and there are two illustrations per chapter. Adriana did an excellent job, and we will both be woking in the future again. That’s for sure. If you want to check out the book, here is the link:

    I have already commented the illustrations by Adriana Rosario, but I still want to congratulate you with the book. It must be exciting times, and I truly hope it will be well accepted and will sell well. Good luck Marielba!
