SYNOPSIS IS HERE Fire, Pain, and Ruin A @rutherford.manor Novel
Rutherford Manor has entered a new era. Spalding Savidge and his wife Penny Savidge raise their twin daughters, Lisa and Louise, in hopes of a normal life. All while the Fleshers further their dark interest through secretive new contracts involving the government, ultimately funding Spalding’s wishful dreams of a simple life for his family. The past fails to stay behind as Spalding is haunted by a ghost long since forgotten. This leads him to lustful temptations, disregarding everything he stands for and challenging his morals to the core.
Lisa and Louise try to make sense of the abnormalities of their home – Uncle Nox’s secret laboratory, Uncle Billy’s large body-shaped bags, their mother’s headaches, and their father’s late work nights. They struggle with adulthood traumas, trying to find their own feet against their violent heritage. Lisa struggles with the hardships of first love. Louise faces a tipping point due to the involvement of a new family in the town of Rowley, the Connors. Mr. Connors is the first to treat Louise with a kindship that she is familiar with from men.
The twins discover otherworldly secrets from the midwives of Rowley. The Savidge girls join them in their ritualistic practices, unaware of the lurking evil that they are about to unleash. Nothing could prepare the midwives or the Savidge twins of the horrors that waited beyond the worldly. Some doors should be kept shut. The Savidge twins learn that despite their growing differences, they must come together for their family, or they risk losing each other forever.

“It happens. Whenever you just want to have a good time, something always goes down.” Vicky to Michael ---- Vicky is a key character in the novel Seed Me who we find next to no info on. She makes a cameo in YEGman where we actually get to meet her alive for the first time. LAST photo illustration for Seed Me. Moving the experimentation onto a secret project, more on that later this year.
Another read this year, no particular order. Who Owns the Future by Jaron Lanier.
Dense read that dives into where we're going. Covers cultural, tech, business, and social. Not too political. It focused on humanity as we are continually absorbed into software. In the end he proposes an interesting humanistic economy with a 2-way copy method of digital files to keep rights and payment in place. Far different from the current system of free web and spy agencies. Lots more in this book. Well worth the read.
“It’s terrible what happened, I know. This is why I am telling you, eighteen months have gone by— you gotta start moving on. The 4-20 Draining is a cold case with no leads.” Skip to Logan about the Drain Cases ------ Another photo illustration. This on is of Skip, who is best buds with the protagonist Logan in the novel Seed Me. Learn about him on the wiki.

“Those lines of people, it looks almost like a pentagram, but it’s missing some, like it’s incomplete. They’re missing people,” Janet said. Janet to Logan ----- Janet is a primary character in the novel Seed Me. Learn more about her in the wiki from the link in the bio.
Another experimental photo illustration piece mixed with gouache and charcoal. #author #photoIllustration #horror #horrorNovel #graphicDesigner #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writer #yegWrites...
