I’m very excited to announce that my debut novel, Destined for Dreams, is now available for pre-order.
Seventeen-year-old Nadia Petrov is an outcast in her tight-knit community of people with special abilities. Nadia must invade people’s dreams to survive. She sneaks into sleeping victims’ rooms, slips into their heads, and then turns their dreams into horrifying nightmares.
When a new girl arrives at her compound, Nadia can’t resist giving the girl a nightmare. In the dream world, Nadia discovers Hunter Sullivan, a soul trapped in the girl’s mind. Intrigued by Hunter, Nadia secretly builds a relationship with him in the dream world, and they find solace through each other.
Unable to accept a love fated for dreams, Nadia must risk losing the safety of her community to help Hunter get back to his body before he’s lost forever.
A little background on Destined for Dreams…
In the beginning of 2014, I was researching different mythical creatures and stumbled across folklore on a creature called a Mare, also known as Mara or a Nightmare. I couldn’t stop thinking about this creature and what it would be like to survive by invading people’s dreams to turn them into nightmares—and that’s when the story of Nadia Petrov, a nightmare inflictor, was created.
After some plotting, I thought that Destined for Dreams would be written from only Nadia’s point of view, but when I started writing a particular scene where Nadia’s inflicting a nightmare, a new character took me by surprise. The character was loud and demanding, and wanted to share his story, and what a troubling story he had. So, I went back to the beginning of my book and Hunter Sullivan got what he wanted—his own point of view.
Destined for Dreams is a young adult paranormal romance with alternating points of view and will be released in print and eBook on December 1, 2014.
I hope you’re looking forward to the release of Destined for Dreams as much as I am. Stay tuned for quotes, short passages, and maybe even a few giveaways.
