Also, this time I'm going to make both books in the Totem Chronicles available via Ingram Spark so they can be ordered by bookstores and hopefully some other formats and venues for ebook. Stay tuned on that.
This is a good year to subscribe to my very infrequent newsletter to stay up on my writing projects and cool updates.
Totem Spirits is a direct sequel to the first book, Totem, and picks up moments after the first book ends. So if you haven't read Totem, now is a good time to read both back to back to stay in the story.
TOSH CLOUDTREE flees the law leaving behind the aftermath of death and destruction on the Hopi reservation in Arizona. His mission: travel all the way up to Seattle to rescue Calvin, his comatose brother, from the militant Native Reclamation Movement. Unfortunately, Tosh rides with Gulf war veteran, Uncle Dino, in his antique truck, max speed 55 MPH. On this spiritual odyssey, Tosh must come to terms with his new role as Kaletaka, protector of the people, while the animal spirits he meets bestow gifts that make him a living Totem.
With Calvin under the control of the Two-Hearts shaman, Chilehee, Tosh must quickly learn to follow the path, train in new totem powers, and be wary of psychic attacks. Eototo, the kachina chief, warns Tosh that another sacred mask of power is awakened. The time of cleansing comes. Chased by the FBI, hated by militants, and separated from his girlfriend (who is occasionally possessed by a spirit of righteous vengeance), Tosh knows he must stop the Destroyer mask and the Two-Hearts to heal Calvin, and he’s hopelessly outmatched.
