DREAMFALL Dreamfest: Countdown Day 10

Today I’m so pleased to bring you this awesome interview with one of my favorite YA book blogs:


When you read it, you will see why DREAMFALL is close to my heart. Because there is (figuratively) a big chunk of said heart invested in one of the characters.

Here it is:

And they’re doing their own giveaway of a hardback copy of DREAMFALL signed and dedicated by moi. I hope you enjoy the interview, and definitely…sign up for that contest!





DREAMFALL Dreamfest: Countdown Day 11

DREAMFALL is all about nightmares. Here’s the review from VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates):

“Sixteen-year-old Catalina-called Cata- cannot sleep, not since the horrible event that left her orphaned at age nine. Cata’s PTSD-induced insomnia is severe enough to qualify for an experimental new treatment for young insomniacs; she and six other teens are treated by Doctors Zhu and Vesper in a trial meant to last about six hours. Cata, Fergus, George, Remi, Sinclair, Ant, and BethAnn are hopeful but leery as they prepare to be treated by electroshock therapy to induce normal sleep patterns. The test subjects respond well at first, but an earthquake disturbs the electrical flow, causing the patients to stall in sleep-like trances and be declared comatose, possibly forever. Unbeknownst to the doctors, the teens have converged in shared nightmares where the gore is tangible and death is real, and they must find a way back to consciousness or die.
               Told in alternating chapters among defensive Cata, brooding Fergus, and optimistic medical intern Jaime, Dreamfall leaps ahead at a breakneck pace and holds the reader’s attention to the gripping, cliffhanger end, when it is revealed that one of the seven stuck in the dream state is a psychopath and possible murderer. Characters include teens of myriad social and ethnic backgrounds who suffer forms of narcolepsy, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.  Deftly and concisely blending hard-edged action, suspense, and a well- crafted cast of characters, Plum delivers a compelling must-have science fiction/action/horror mash-up that will leave readers anticipating the next installment of this planned duology.”

So for today’s contest I thought it was appropriate to give away a leopard-patterned sleep mask!

maskAll you have to do is sign up for my newsletter below. A benefit of this is that in a few days, I’ll be giving away a really nice prize INSIDE the newsletter! Also, I’m so lazy that I only send a newsletter out when I have a new book being released, so you’ll only get around one per year. :)

IF you are already a member of my newsletter, just put your name in a comment below and I’ll double-check that you’re on the list.

This contest is international and lasts 24 hours! Good luck!
