Exclusive art, which was specially commissioned for the book is to be showcased on the artists online gallery. Artist Paul Atlas-Saunders has nine brand new pen and ink illustrations, eight of which are exclusive to Spirit Chaser. The pen and ink drawings depict some of the key historic sites mentioned in the book. Illustrated below is Long Meg standing stone, a large monolith sited at Little Salkeld in the Eden Valley, Cumbria.

This large sandstone standing stone sits as an outlying stone at one of the finest stone circles in the north of England, the circle has a diameter of about 350 feet, the second biggest in the country. Long Meg is the tallest of the 69 stones, about 12 feet high, with three mysterious spiral symbols, its four corners facing the points of the compass and standing some 60 feet outside the circle.Being such an important and impressive ancient site, Long Meg and Her Daughters play an important part in the Spirit Chaser adventure.

Paul is also responsible for the exquisite front cover art, which depicts St Bega's arrival at the sacred centre of the British Isles. Entitled Alightment, the drawing is a vibrant and colourful image, which sets the tone for the book extremely well.

Spirit Chaser is the true story of a psychic adventure that turned into an uplifting spiritual pilgrimage. In June 1989, the author began following a series of psychic messages and significant synchronicity that led him to discover the enigmatic mystery of St Bega, the sacredness of the British landscape and ultimately to experience the divine reality of the Celtic tradition of mysticism, miracles and magic.

Over a period of 17 years, the author has met many people who have helped him on this spiritual quest. People from many different backgrounds and traditions; a myriad web of seemingly unconnected folk, who through a strange and unconscious thread of fate have each contributed to this amazing story of psychic adventure, spiritual fulfilment and creative enlightenment.

Spirit Chaser takes us on a magnificent journey, a journey into the twilight past of seventh century Britain and Ireland. A journey into the heart of a modern day quest for the mystery that is the Sancta Bega; the sacred ring at the mystical centre of the British Isles.
