Nominated for the 2012 Global eBook Awards, “The Flaw in the Fabric, Book 1 of A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls” – set along the Granite Coast of Nova Scotia – is a world in which the boundaries of space and time are developing stress cracks. Through one such crack, brought on by a hurricane in the ghost-infested province of Nova Scotia, two brothers reincarnate after spending two hundred years as lost souls in the neither-here-nor-there land of the In Between. They’re as surprised to be back as Raymond Kidd is to find them in his basement. While wondering how to cope with his unnatural visitors, Raymond himself falls through another crack which sends him back to his life as a 19th century merchant captain, where he discovers he has a wife and child he loves as much as he loves his 21st century family. In the midst of trying to cope with that dilemma, his wife of the future is summoning him back, but when he returns it’s not the way that anyone intended. In between here and there, Raymond is given a mission. He must write A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls.
