Sleep-writing

By September 23, 2015

The-Burden-of-Dreams_2013_lores1-545x545I seem to be going through a creative phase right now and I always love when that happens. It’s strange because I normally find fall a bit depressing, but the weather has been so beautiful lately. I’ve been spending a lot of time walking the neighborhood and reading by the pool. Maybe all that fresh air sparked something.

By day, I’m working on The Graveyard Queen series while at night, a whole new trilogy has been writing itself in my sleep. It started with an evocative book title that came to me in a dream. When I woke up, I knew I had to figure out what it meant. I’ve been sleep-writing for about a week now as the plot slowly unfolds.

My head is so full of ideas, I feel like the Maggie Taylor painting “The Burden of Dreams.” Except my dreams are kind of awesome right now. 🙂

      Hi Claudia–I’ve been out of commission for a bit while I finished The Sinner and then getting the new site built. I’m almost certain the news books will be available on Audible. I don’t have word yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

    I absolutely can NOT wait for the new Graveyard Queen books. The anticipation is killing me. One of my groups on GoodReads is doing a reread of the series to get ready. Is there any way I could get my hands on an ARC for review purposes?
