A guest post by Brynn Chapman
So thanks for hosting me…can I say it is my utmost wish is to someday add to your “Team” Meme’s, a Team Henry. lol.
Often mundane life makes it difficult for writers to cross over the bridge in their head to that magical place that is story.
Every writer I know creates a touchstone, as it were—a conduit that automatically takes them out of their reality to the mind-frame of story, so vital to put the words to page.
One that works for me is images. Images of the time period—or of representations of scenes or characters. Keep those images before you, paired with a play list and Viola, instant setting.
If you’re interested follow me on Pinterest. Visit brynn ‘s profile on Pinterest.
Here are some of my boards. I typically make one for each book.
- BONESEEKER Board
- And a quote from the book
- And one titled Fabulous Weirdness…which might be a subtitle to my life lol.
For Henry and Bella, we needed the fashions of the early 1900’s (think Downton Abby) (I mean, you should think of this show everyday anyway, correct?) so I tried to collect some for both sexes. And of course I am always collecting medical oddities and antiquities for Bella and Henry to add to their curation at their museum.
I look forward to introducing Henry and Bella’s stories to the world.

Arabella Holmes was born different and raised different. After it became apparent she wouldn’t fit the role of a proper 1900’s lady, her father, Sherlock, called in some lingering favors, and landed her a position at the Mutter Museum. The museum was Arabella’s dream; she was to become a purveyor of abnormal science. What her father called a BoneSeeker.
Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter Museum with a double assignment–to become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over and keep Arabella Holmes. An easy task, if he could only get her to speak to him instead of throwing knives in his general direction.
But this is no time for child’s play. The two teens are assigned to a most secret exploration, when the hand of a Nephilim is unearthed in upstate New York. Soon, Arabella and Henry are caught in a fight for their lives as scientific debate swirls around them. Are the bones from a Neanderthal … or are they living proof of fallen angels, who supposedly mated with humans according to ancient scrolls?
Sent to recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the entire first team is dead. And now they must trust their instincts and rely on one another in order to survive and uncover the truth.
