The Half-Ghosts: Aether’s Half


Go to and look under LeslieCopeland2 for daily installments of my second spirited short novel, The Half-Ghosts: Aether’s Half. What’s it about? Well . . .

Half-ghost Aether’s visit to the mortal world with her twin brother, Hemmett, has opened up more questions than it answered. How will they turn out, as half-ghosts? Who is their father Emmett, really? Aether and Hemmett are afraid to ask their father about his true identity. Meanwhile, Aether longs to spend time with Reid, the haunting ghost at the local bookstore. Hemmett, too, has met some mortal girls he likes–especially Serafina. Their parents allow them to roam the mortal world–but with a curfew. With Bellum out of the way and Blade in the spirit world, things should be perfectly safe. Until a little innocent research spirals out of control, and Aether winds up unlocking far more answers–and more danger–than she bargained for.


The Half-ghosts

The One

Go to and look under LeslieCopeland2 for daily installments of my latest spirited short novel, The Half-ghosts. What’s it about? Well . . .

Hemmett d’Espers-Fitzhugh is sick and tired of school at the Interspiritual Academy of Portales Espirituales. Most of the students are half-ghosts like him–either his own cousins or kids he’s known all his life–and he’s BORED. His twin sister Aether acts like she’s so perfect all the time. His parents–a spirit and a mortal–don’t know what to do with him. Everyone but Hemmett can communicate telepathically, and his cousins have great control over their spectricity, while Hemmett keeps accidentally zapping everyone. The only thing he’s really good at is spectral script, but the mortal teacher at school keeps teaching elementary lessons that drive Hemmett crazy. Plus, Hemmett’s terribly curious about the mortal world–especially mortal girls. When he decides to go on a spirit tour by himself to the mortal world, his encounters with the mortals and ghosts of the town just might shake things up a bit. But when he stirs up some trouble in the personage of an ancient hostile spirit, it will take every bit of talent Hemmett has to keep the spirit from destroying the town.
