I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Evangeline and the Spiritualist – Episode 3 of The Antics of Evangeline. Available from today at Amazon.

A sarcophagus, séances and seed cake, Evangeline is back with another adventure.

Mrs Picklescott-Smythe’s mummy unwrapping soiree doesn’t quite go to plan, and for once it’s not Evangeline’s fault.

Evangeline is a seventeen-year-old ex-urchin and aspiring world-famous inventress, recently resettled in Marvellous Melbourne with her long lost father, the Professor.

It’s the infamous spiritualist, Madame Zsoldas, who interrupts the party with a sinister warning and she is not the only who feels something strange.

And when Madame Zsoldas moves into Collins Street, Evangeline is determined to attend one of her famous séances and unravel her own family secrets. But not everyone is as welcoming.

Can Madame Zsoldas truly speak to the dead?
Who is Uncle Augie trying to contact?
What does Evangeline want with the Professor’s spare hand?
And are there any coconut macaroons left?

Mystery, mysticism and gadgets, Evangeline and the Spiritualist is another romp through 1880s steampunk Melbourne. With plenty of tea and crumpets, of course.

Evangeline and the Spiritualist available NOW on Amazon.
