Bookish, blurbish news on my new urban fantasyPosted: June 14, 2015
Lucid Dreaming, my adult urban fantasy, is scheduled to come out in November this year. Like the Isla’s Inheritance trilogy, this book is set in Australia, and deals with complex family relationships and the bridge between humans and the supernatural. Unlike Isla, though, Melaina already has a clear idea of her place in the world and is content to make her way within it.
But her absentee scoundrel of a father is an Oneiroi, a Greek spirit of dreams, and is wanted by his own kind — a fact that gets her in all kinds of trouble.
The manuscript is currently with my wonderful editor, and the cover is more or less done thanks to KILA Designs, so it’s all starting to feel real. I’m thrilled at the idea of finally sharing this book with you. I adore Melaina’s story, and I hope you will too.
In the meantime, here’s the blurb to whet your appetite.
Who would have thought your dreams could kill you?
Melaina makes the best of her peculiar heritage: half human and half Oneiroi, or dream spirit, she can manipulate others’ dreams. At least working out the back of a new age store as a ‘dream therapist’ pays the bills. Barely.
But when Melaina treats a client for possession by a nightmare creature, she unleashes the murderous wrath of the creature’s master. He could be anywhere, inside anyone: a complete stranger or her dearest friend. Melaina must figure out who this hidden adversary is and what he’s planning — before the nightmares come for her.
Lucid Dreaming is also up on Goodreads, and if you add it to your to-read list, I’ll be forever grateful. Really, I will. There’ll be dancing and everything.
