Beyond Your Dreams Releases Sept. 23

Beyond Your Dreams

Mark your calendars and synchronize your watches! Beyond Your Dreams (In Your Dreams 4) will be available on Amazon on September 23! Beyond Your Dreams will be available in Kindle format on that date and should be available in print shortly thereafter. The book will also be available on Smashwords and other ebook outlets shortly after September 23 as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my act together enough to get a pre-order page up on Amazon (I’m happy in many ways, given how busy my life is at the moment, to be getting Beyond Your Dreams to print at all). Hopefully, with my next book (a New Adult that will be out at the end of the year or early next), I’ll be able to have a pre-order page.

And you know I can’t have a book release without some sort of a giveaway attached, so keep an eye on this space in the near future for giveaway announcements!

For those of you who didn’t get the chance to test read Beyond Your Dreams, Zip and Kieran’s relationship really gets put through the ringer in this one. But I think the series ends in a place that will make everyone happy.

Beyond Your Dreams picks up right after Kieran undergoes the treatment and ends at high school graduation…and includes an epilogue that catches up with everyone five years later at a Very Special Event (at which something happens that I think will make everyone pretty happy :)). We also learn in the epilogue about the passing of a peripheral character, whose death has a major impact on another character’s life.

Hope I was able to give you some teases there without spoiling anything. :)

Intrigued? Well, you’ll be able to find out all about how Zip and Kieran’s story ends in just a few days. So, don’t forget–Beyond Your Dreams (In Your Dreams 4) will be available for Amazon Kindle on Tuesday, September 23. Spread the good word, happy reading, and thank you for your support!

Aren’t they pretty?

P.J. Owen: Friday Author Feature

Friday Author Feature

P.J. Owen is our special guest for this week’s Friday Author Feature. P.J. Owen is the author of Seeking Daylight – Part I – Journey to the Underhill Gates (Louis Witherspoon Adventure Series Book 1).

 

P.J. OwenLouis Witherspoon has little idea just how important he is.

After all, at Hinsdale Academy he is known by his classmates as little more than the scrawny kid who was only accepted to the prestigious school because he is the grandson of the janitor…that is, if he’s noticed at all.

But everything changes when Louis’ grandfather suddenly disappears, and he is left with a mysterious map that once belonged to a father Louis has never known. Along with his only two friends, Owen and Sophie, Louis is thrust into another world that he might have found right under his nose, if he had known where to look for it.

It is a story of friendship, hardship and of fantastic adventure. But most of all, it’s the story of three very different classmates who rise to meet the awesome challenges that life has thrown in their way…together.

How long have you been writing?
Began writing fiction late 2013. Took a bit of a break to work on my other business, but finally began publishing this year.
What inspired you to write this book?
My grandfather mostly. He was a wonderful teller of stories. Mostly about the war (WWII), but not in the way that you might imagine. His stories generally revolved around his fond memories of friends made and adventures had.
Which character is your favorite and why?
In my Seeking Daylight series, my favorite character to write is probably Sophie. I enjoy penning strong female characters. In other fiction…probably Holden Caulfield. I have read “Catcher” at least a dozen times, but I can never seem to put my finger on why he is such a beloved character. With each read I find something new.
What advice do you have for young authors?
Do SOMETHING even if it’s wrong. This was advice given to me years ago by my to-be father-in-law. Distilled down, he more or less meant that sitting on an idea until you have it perfectly mapped out in your mind is really on par with doing nothing at all. It is the cowards way out. As any author knows, the only way you can truly find your story is to let the words take you there…the only way for that magic to work is to start.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I own two businesses that keep me busy. One is a design firm, the other is a company that manufactures wild bird feeding products that are sold across North America. I know, it’s a weird profession, but it is also “do something even if it’s wrong” brought into material form…for me at least. Beyond that, I live on a horse farm in upstate New York. Horses have a way of eating up any other time you might have had for yourself.
Thanks to P.J. Owen for stopping by the Friday Author Feature!
