S.C. Barrus is an author/publisher whose debut novel, Discovering Aberration, was released in January of 2014. Set in an alternate Victorian era, the steampunk adventure follows Freddy Fitzgerald, a rebellious writer and ex-scuttler, and Thaddeus Lumpen, a desperate archaeologist with a slew of dangerous rivals. Together they will stop at nothing to make the discovery of a lifetime. But their island destination hides its own dark secrets which can push even the strongest minds into madness.
Barrus has been seriously writing since 2011, when he began publishing short stories and poems in small literary journals. In 2013, he began to explore self-publishing with his short story Midway Between Heaven and Hell.
He founded his own publishing company, Away & Away Publishing, in 2014 and, with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, released Discovering Aberration under Away & Away’s imprint. Readers can learn more at www.awayandaway.com.
