THE VALIARD MANSION - Chapter 1 by The-Ez THE VALIARD MANSION - Chapter 1 by The-Ez

STORY SYNOPSIS
Set in 1888, The Valiard Mansion tells the story Ruth Rosewood, a middle-class Englishwoman who gets trapped inside a haunted house by a vengeful ghost.  Only one spell can set her free, and only three people believe she can still be saved—her childhood sweetheart, her best friend and her little brother. To find the spell, Theodore, Gangfield and Adam set off to traverse the dangerous past of an ancient magician, while Ruth must fight to keep her sanity in the all-consuming realm of the forgotten dead. 


Welcome to the first chapter of my illustrated novel, The Valiard Mansion! :D It's got romance, ghosts, magic and talking animals—basically all my favourite things—and it's suitable for all ages. :meow:

A new chapter is published every month or so in the format of a freely downloadable PDF. The large font size makes for easy reading on all monitors and mobile devices. Publication takes place here on deviantART as well as on the official Valiard website.

Visit www.TheValiardMansion.com/ to read the story and learn more about the characters!

:star: Any crits and comments are welcome. I'm still a newbie author and I want to learn as much as I can! Please don't hesitate to let me know what you think, okay! :w00t:

What kind of file do you use to submit to dA? I tried submitting a Word document, but it didn't do anything like what I'm seeing up there. 
Thank you in advance and sorry to bother you, but you're the only person I've seen with this kind of file on dA.

Thank you, that helped more than you think. I'd forgotten you could save a document as more than one kind of file XD
Shows how much of a tech whiz I am XP

I don't understand how anyone could say Gangfield looks odd, he's absolutely gorgeous!  Love
