Hello, and welcome to my stop on this week’s Book Hooks.
Here’s a little taste from book two of the Dream Series, DREAM DOCTOR:
I was able to get back to sleep, finally; I got maybe two more hours.
When I went to bed last night I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get to sleep in the first place; I thought I’d be up all night with the jitters. To my surprise, though, I had no trouble falling asleep. I spent a few minutes holding my hand up to my face and staring at Grandma Roberta’s ring – my ring – and remembering that afternoon last summer when Brian gave it to me. I did my best to act surprised, but I couldn’t pull it off. He knew I’d seen him, seen his dream, seen him asking my father for his blessing and getting more than he bargained for when Dad handed over my grandmother’s ring to him.
I fell asleep with that memory, and a smile on my face. After that, I didn’t expect to be woken up by someone I don’t know dreaming about killing somebody. I thought I was done with that once and for all.
For about the first three months after Dr. Walters was caught, I went to bed every night expecting to have more nightmares. I was certain I’d keep seeing other people’s horrible visions in my head. But it didn’t happen, and it kept not happening. It wasn’t until a week or two after my cast came off that I really started to believe that it was over for good.
Wishful thinking, obviously.
But I am not going to obsess about it today. I’ve got far better things to obsess about.
