8 Sentence Sunday on Dieselpunks #9

dieselpunkssquarelogoThis snippets is part of the episode I already written about in 8 Sentence Sunday on Dieselpunk #7

Ghost Trilogy is a ghost story, so of course there are ghosts and spirits involved with humans. I like this aspect of the story a lot and I worked very hard to make it interesting, but also as believable as possible in a setting that is otherwise as historical and realistic as I could make it.

Because my main characters (so, Blood included) are Lakota, I leaned heavily on Native American – of course foremost Lakota – beliefs about spirit and the connection between spirits and humans. It was a very nice journey of discovery for me.

“I’m not doing it again,” she said.

Blood leaned on the table toward her. “You needn’t be scared, Cindy,” he said. “Spirits are just like humans. You can trust most of them. You should be wary of some others. And a few of them, you’d better avoid altogether.”

She looked at her hands clasped tight on the tabletop and chuckled softly, bitterly, shaking her head.
