Clockwork Looking Glass: A Heart of Bronze Novel by Mr. Michael J Rigg

She woke up naked and alone with no memories, staring up into the eyes of a handsome soldier. She had no idea who she was, how she got here, or the fact that her presence would change reality forever.

Clockwork Looking Glass follows the journey of "Alice" as she struggles to make sense of her surroundings, piecing them together with the strange visions and nightmares that are her only link to who she really is. With the help of a dashing Confederate officer, a teenage witch and a paranoid manservant, Alice soon discovers that this world of airships and Tesla towers is prowled by ghastly magic-wielding monsters, ghostlike "Clockwork Carpenters," and the cannibalistic greed of corporations like Thorne & Wolfe.

It's a fantasy set in an alternate reality, an urban Steampunk universe that moves from the bronze and iron towers of New Yorke and haunted Philadelphia to the plantations of Louisiana, the Citadel of Thinking Machines and finally to the key that could bring Alice home... or destroy everything: Atlantis.

About the Author

Michael Rigg knew he was destined to tell fantastic stories from the age of 12. It was the summer of 1977 and a little inconsequential film called "Star Wars" ignited his imagination and opened his mind and heart to the infinite possibilities of storytelling. He studied film and philosophy in college before switching his focus to writing when a creative writing professor pointed out, "You know, you don't have to deal with actors and producers, weather and catering. The budget for a writer's special effects amounts to zero dollars, you can set your story anyplace you want, and--"

Michael never heard the rest of the advice. He was already filling pages in his mind with fantastic adventures, thrillers and mysteries. His keyboard became his camera. His monitor became the Big Screen.

In 2011, he began plotting out the characters and settings of a unique universe caught between realities, an urban fantasy flavored with Steampunk visions in a mythical time of ghouls and witches, soldiers and airships, magic and espionage. The Heart of Bronze universe was born.

Michael lives in Chicago, Illinois with his lovely wife, Melanie, and their Italian Greyhounds, Daisy and Maggie. When he's not writing he soaks up every possible media where fantasy thrives and the imagination reigns.
