"The Props Master 1: Ritual Reality" has now been released on Kindle as of this morning! The Nook version often takes another day or two to go live. This book is the full edited version of my currently running serial on StoriesOnline, "The Props Master 1: Ritual Reality."

In 1968, theatre design student and props master, Wayne Hamel, is thrilled to find himself dating English transfer student Judith Harmon, even though Professor Allen has just presented him with an ultimatum that could cost him his full-time status and draft exemption. Wayne finds himself inexplicably drawn into a web of intrigue as a power struggle in the ancient Cobhan Carles focuses on his ability as a toolmaker. With four different witches attempting to "help" Wayne in his initiation into the Craft, he constantly finds his head muddled as each attempts to conceal her work from the others. When his final protection is stripped away, he finds himself wandering the hills of the English Lake District haunted by ghosts and witches present and past. Yet he is the key to the coven's struggles and bursts into the circle like Hyperion riding his chariot.

This book contains a few very intense sexual scenes in the context of pagan ritual and Wayne and Judith's love. Mostly it focuses on the life and confusion of a young man just trying to survive college with a few complications!
