A few months ago I released a short story to launch my new ongoing dieselpunk series. You can find that first story, Mrs. Jones and the Midas Train, on Amazon and Smashwords.

Mrs. Jones, ghost hunter.
A dead man comes to the door, asking for help. He was murdered with a magic spell, and fears that his murderer will kill again.
