Leanna Renee Hieber: Gothic Victorian Fantasy for old souls in a modern world

Historical Novel Society Review and Convention Haze... (Tue, 02 Jun 2015)
Hello, Dear Readers! I've been in so many states doing so many events back to back, I'm dizzy. But I am so thrilled that THE ETERNA FILES, in addition to the rest of my Gaslamp Fantasy career, continues to gain interest in the world. The industry and genre panels I've been on this year have been particularly engaging, and I'm very blessed to see the direct result of my speaking passionately about my work has led to selling out of books at back to back conventions. I've seen awesome cosplays, performed in very fun skits and spoken on countless panels, and all in my signature Gothic all black Victorian regalia. If you haven't yet gotten a signed copy of ETERNA FILES, the fine folks at Mysterious Galaxy have a few left for you! And I'm thrilled that the fine folks at the Historical Novel Society gave The Eterna Files a lovely write-up in the latest issue: Historical Novels Review, Issue 72, May 2015 “After the death of Abraham Lincoln, mystic Clara Templeton suggests to Mary Lincoln that her husband should have been made immortal. Taken with the idea, Mary Lincoln presses the government to create a group of scientists and mystic to investigate immortality. Seventeen years later, the group has neared its goal when most of its members are killed in a strange accident. Clara feels responsible and mourns the loss of her lover; with her guardian Senator Bishop, she helps to investigate the accident and follow up on the group’s work. In England, a similar group has been working on immortality, and all of its members have disappeared. Policeman Spire is hired to head the new agency, to discovery what happened to the missing scientists and to help complete their work. America and Britain are in a race to see who can understand the eterna compound/process first, but a third group, mysterious and dangerous, is also involved. Hieber’s alternate history/steampunk world is well drawn, and her characters, though numerous, are fully realized. The mystery is murky and the plot fast-paced. The Eterna Files must be the first book in a series as the story ends mid-action.” – Elizabeth Caulfield Felt for Historical Novels Review  -- Stay tuned for news on the re-release of the beautiful new edition of STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL! - Cheers and Happy Haunting! http://www.leannareneehieber.com
