New things are happening!

…exciting days too. First and foremost the cover artwork for my upcoming novel, Darkest Vow, arrived and I must say I am very, very pleased. A wonderful lady, Karen Ronan, designed the artwork. She’s the owner of and I must say she is a top talent. Check out the awesome cover below. The work captures the era of the book brilliantly.

Let’s talk nightmares

Good morning, good morning, good morning!

I hope everyone has slept well the night before. Or perhaps you haven’t? Perhaps you have had a restless night’s sleep. Perhaps you have laid awake all night staring at the ceiling waiting for that fit of insomnia to pass. Perhaps you even forewent the blissful rest for a zesty session with your partner.

Or perhaps you suffered from a nightmare that jerked you awake and made you scared to fall asleep again.

As the sweat pours down your brow from the panic of the dream your heart races in your chest. You can feel and hear the pounding of the booming beats. You start to ask yourself. Was that real? Was it only a dream? It sure seemed real. And suddenly at that moment you wished you were anywhere but where you were. The sanctity of your bed has been violated with demons that spring up in your subconscious.

So let’s talk nightmares.

In my first novel the main character, Kirk Samson, is our hero that is plagued by gripping nightmares that are all too real. For Kirk the demons become real. Events that happen in the dreams start to happen in real life and he is lost for an explanation as to why.

Has anyone ever felt that? Ever get that feeling of deja vu that you’ve done something before or rather felt something before. You can feel those icy fingers saunter their way slowly down your back. A rough chill shakes its way up your spine. Does anyone remember their grandmother telling them that feeling was like someone walking over your grave? But that couldn’t be right? You’re not dead – yet.

The things that haunt us in our dreams can easily haunt us in real life. In Ghost of a Chance Kirk is haunted by demons and ghosts that shadow the real world. Events are tied together on a fateful course of destruction. But just how different is that to the real world? Many of our nightmares are shadows of things that have transpired twisted up in a grotesque manner. Other times they are foreshadows of things to come like a perverse Christmas Carol. But maybe just maybe there are demonic forces at work there. Forces that are guiding your soul to an alternate path and forces that strike when you are the most vulnerable, when you are asleep.

When you wake up in the middle of the night and feel like eyes are staring out at from the open door of the closet though you can’t see anything there. Or if you take a trip in the darkened house to use the bathroom and feel like someone or something is following you, something so sinister you can’t shake it and it makes you nervous the entire trip. Could there really be something there? Or are these just the nightmares refusing to let go from the forefront of your mind. Only you can tell for sure. For Kirk Samson these things are real and they do more than just jostle around in his mind.

As Amazon is ready to run a Free Promotion day for my novel Ghost of a Chance¬†let’s hear about some of your stories and nightmares. Perhaps you may find some solace talking about them or maybe even Kirk’s story can help you deal with any demons that are haunting you.
