"Five Stars!" --Digital Book Today
Best Seller - Literary Suspense --Amazon
"The writing is enticing, the story multi-layered. I enjoyed falling under its spell. Well done. Simple. Draws you into the story from the first page."
--Judges for the 2012 Annual Book Awards, Bay Area Independent Publishers Assn. (BAIPA)
"Witty, Ghostly, a Literary Tour de Force!"
--Robbi Sommers Bryant, author of an Amazon #1 best-selling suspense 'The Beautiful Evil' (BAIPA Award Winner - Genre Fiction)
"Wildly imaginative black comedy. The gripping opening drags the reader into the nightmare of Raymond's brush with the supernatural, with the threat of the invasive sea in the basement suffocatingly real. The details are surreal and horribly convincing. Lindsey has an enviable turn of phrase."
--Jean Gill, France
"How to write like a pirate! Superb writing style and a captivating story filled
with shining and disappearing characters, ghostly insights and laugh out loud
humor. Great read. I'm hooked. Bring on the sequel, prequel or any work by
this author. It's just that good."
--C. L. Sumruld, Nashville TN
"The style is unique, the colorful language and characters endearing. The gentle choice of words in intimate moments is both sweet and believable. The author connects with the thoughts and passions of both young and old. He has quite carefully and sensitively taken me in and stirred my heart."
--Judy Jones, Texarkana Texas
"Charming to horrific, tough to tender and elegant to brutal, all told by an author whose wit pops up in wonderfully unexpected places."
--Persia Woolley, author of The Guinevere Trilogy
From the Author
The background for the novel comes from the picturesque and wild Nova Scotia Granite Coast where I live in the seaside village of Prospect. When I arrived here over eighteen years ago from California, I began to hear the ghost stories and histories from the locals. Later I worked as a main character in a tourist attraction at the historical Keith's Brewery in downtown Halifax where I learned all about characters from the nineteenth century and how to talk like them. Combine that with my Buddhist orientation and love for all literature classics, like Alice in Wonderland, and you come up with what came to me in a dream 'The Flaw in the Fabric.'
of The Flaw in the Fabric, will be available Summer 2012 on Amazon, Audible & iTunes.
I encourage to take a look at the companion poetry book to this series here on Amazon as well: Snapshots from the In Between, A Companion Volume of Verse to A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls. They are poems written by the souls who are lost in the in between; the souls for whom the hero of The Flaw in the Fabric must write a traveller's guide. This guide is commissioned by a monk who wants that hero to help those lost souls who are in the "in between" find their way onwards to the realm where they belong.
The In Between is the realm of lost souls, those who have passed from this life but not entered the next. Normally we call them ghosts, and think of them as scary, because they might haunt us, but really they are mostly normal people stuck in an awkward oblivion, one so close to their previous lives that they cannot help but be painfully aware of all that goes on there.
Snapshots from the In Between are the condensed stories of a number of these lost souls, as transmitted to the author in a state of deep contemplation, in which they remember the particular circumstances of their unlikely incarceration. They have not been given a life sentence, or a death sentence, but an indeterminate sentence, one which, as far as they can tell, may never end. What is left to them but to sing of their predicament to anyone who will listen?
