Halloween Hijinks, Lucid Dreaming Pre-orders, and a Giveaway


It’s four days until Lucid Dreaming is released, and in hindsight you can bet your favourite pair of slippers that I wish I’d organised the release for today instead of Melbourne Cup Day. Because I don’t have even a single horse in the book.

Unless you count all the NIGHTMARES!

Get it? GET IT?

It would have been an especially good tie-in, because — as is pretty clear from the blurb — one of the primary focuses of the book is the freaky things that lurk in our dreaming minds. Especially the things that are born from real monsters.

Anyway, to celebrate Halloween and because I’m a stand-up kind of person, if you leave a comment on this post with your favourite spooky monster you’ll receive a chance to win an ebook of Lucid Dreaming in the format of your choice. The competition will run for three days, or until I decide to draw it (because I’m fickle like that!).

If you’re too impatient (which I totally respect) or don’t have a favourite spooky monster, then here are the various ebook pre-order links. There will be a paperback, but I expect it to be delayed by about a week — I’m waiting for my winged monkeys to deliver my proof so I can fondle it check it before authorising the final.

Also, in case you missed it, I’ve been interviewed over at Aussie Owned and Read. Check it out!

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.

  1. How did i miss that the release is so close? I can’t wait to read it! My favorite scary creatures are vampires. But this goes way back before Twilight. I wanted to be a vampire slayer when the original Buffy movie came out in the early 90s. Then once I read Anne Rice and saw Spike on the the Buffy TV show, I no longer wanted to kill them, but rather…well, you know. 🙂

    I also really like ghosts. My aunt does ghost hunting for a hobby, so I’ve had my fair share of experiences.

    I’m a vampire gal. It all stems from Anne Rice. I quite like a spooky ghost story too.
