Capturing The Castle: Images of Preston Castle (2006-2016) 

ISBN: 978-0-9987214-0-8
LCCN: 2017902941


On a hilltop in Ione, California, there stands an unlikely castle with fanciful turrets and a soaring clock tower, looming over the town at its feet. This is Preston Castle, formerly known as the Preston
School of Industry, which operated as a youth correctional facility from 1894 through 1960.

Fascinated by this unique building, Angelica R. Jackson has photographed its interior over a ten-year period, and learned something of its history. Meanwhile, the Preston Castle Foundation has been working to preserve and restore selected rooms, and many of these photos will take you back in time to their state of arrested decay.

"In “Capturing the Castle” Jackson’s color and black and white photographs show both Preston’s unique architecture and the types of living arrangements used for staff and wards. Ornately carved corbels and archways vie with the Spartan utility of the basement baths; ivy crawls up walls studded with hundreds of windows." --The Mountain Democrat

Crow's Rest, book 1 of the Faerie Crossed series
A darkly funny young adult urban fantasy

The cover design for Crow's Rest, designed by Kelley York of X-Potions Design for the Spencer Hill Press version, earned a star in the May 2015 e-Book Cover Design Awards on Joel Friedlander's The Book Designer site!





 
























Avery Flynn arrives for a visit at her Uncle Tam's, eager to rekindle her summertime romance with her crush-next-door, Daniel.

But after a mysterious ailment, Daniel’s not the sweet, neurotic guy she remembers—and she wonders if this is her Daniel at all. Or if someone—some THING—has taken his place.

Are the ghosts who reportedly haunt the local abandoned boys’ reformatory to blame? Or do the crows flocking around Daniel have something to do with his transformation?

Her quest to find the real Daniel—and get him back—plunges Avery into a world of Fae and changelings, where creatures swap bodies like humans change their socks, and magic lives much closer to home than she ever imagined.
