The portal to the Melancholy is closed. The Realm is safe.

Chris Taylor, inventor of the ghost tuner, is back from the dead and planning his wedding to ghost rights activist Hannah Lively. They have nothing more to worry about . . . or do they? The portal experiment is back, this time in the hands of a capable university team who assures them it’s safe. But Chris and Hannah both know what can go wrong. With the onset of a baffling health issue, a thread of impending doom weaves through their lives and threatens to shatter their happiness.

It trails into an alternate universe, where bountyman Porfiryo Brinn just wants to retire and openly court his clandestine lover, the Governor of Ilarrya. Instead, he must track a fugitive through a natural portal to stop an ongoing coup.

When the thread draws Martinsburg and Ilarrya together, Hannah must overcome her doubts to save the man she loves.

Average 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Tunerville book cover shows a shadowy figure on a blue field of hexagonal lights and a title in orange font. Author name below title in white font.

What would you do if you could see a ghost, talk to it, or even touch it?

Paranormal investigator Chris Taylor invents a remote control that tunes ghosts into the physical world. The tuner’s effect on humanity threatens the dimension that houses the afterlife, known as the Realm. But the living don’t want to give up the tuners, and neither do the dead.

When a scientist bent on glory tweaks the tuner in a dangerous experiment, Chris and his friends must do whatever they can to stop her. What follows takes Chris on a journey he never imagined, one that could cost him everything!

A little quiet time on your lunch break. That seemingly endless wait at the airport. A cozy evening at home. All good times to indulge in a short story or two.

In this collection of speculative fiction from Tunerville author A. Elizabeth West, you’ll find tales of a farmer’s unexpected encounter with the fair folk, an enduring relationship across time and space, a shuddering realization of what can happen if you don’t read the terms and conditions, and more.
