Philomena Sparks and The Curse of the Big Ben has been out there for some weeks actually, and it already has two five star reviews in Amazon. The ones who have read it told me they loved it, that they could picture themselves in the Victorian world described in the book. Also, they loved the illustrations, which enhance and capture the mysteriously dark atmosphere of the story.
The book is available in print (paperback) and in electronic format.
Here is a list of all the places where you can find it and download a preview if you like.
And, just because I am a generous person, here is an excerpt:
“I had often heard that one great discovery only leads to another one, and what lay before me certainly proved this creed to be right. There were tall walls of earth that encircled the quartz pillars, forming a special kind of funnel around it. I could distinguish roots, long greenish-brown vines that hung down like a curtain and layers of rock formations that crept out, as if protecting the closely-knit quartz pillars on their way up. They did not touch the crystal, though. There was enough space between the cluster of quartz pillars and the surrounding earth for a person or two to climb upwards to the surface. The whole sight gave off the surreal impression that the quartz had been planted on the puddle, rather than it emerged from it. Close to the top I could see some brownish-green areas, but these did not belong to the forest. It was then that I realized I was inside an odd sinkhole, underneath Maboodia, in a world within another one. “
