Brier Books in Lexington, Kentucky, has generously offered to host a lapel pin giveaway for DREAMFALL and NEVERWAKE.  (We love indie bookstores!!)

If you order DREAMFALL through them (in either paperback or hardback), you will receive a blue vital signs lapel pin…which fits nicely with the green one you will receive if you pre-order NEVERWAKE!

Just order using Brier Books’ order form here: https://www.brierbooks.com/amy-plum

(Do not despair – if you already own DREAMFALL or pre-ordered NEVERWAKE prior to today, July 19, you can still get the pin. Just send your proof of purchase, or, in the case of DREAMFALL, if you no longer have it, a photo of you with the book to katieloumercier@gmail.com as well as your name and snail mail address.)

DREAMFALL LIVE (plus giveaway)

This is one of the most exciting promotions I’ve done with any of my 10 books!!!

8 teenage writers have agreed to play the characters from the DREAMFALL series on social media.

From July 7 – August 7, they are posting about their experiences and are ready to answer questions from you about DREAMFALL or their backstories.

From August 7, after NEVERWAKE releases, they are ready to answer any of your questions about NEVERWAKE…or after! (I have given them exclusive information about their futures long after the series ends. To find out how Cata, Fergus, Ant, Remi, BethAnn, Sylvain, George, and Jaime end up, all you have to do is ask!

And to get the questions rolling in, I am giving away prizes! Each week I will give 1 prize to a question sent to each character. So if you ask each character a question, you will have 8 chances at a prize…per week!

This week I am giving away 8 paperback copies of DREAMFALL!

Dreamfall_revise

Giving away 8 copies this week! Just ask each character a question on Instagram or Twitter!

I will draw randomly from the questions asked each character on Instagram or Twitter and on July 24 will choose 8 winners.

Here are the  profiles and links to their accounts. In the meta-universe of their social media accounts, they just underwent a radical experiment to cure their chronic insomnia, and are able to answer all of your questions to the end of Dreamfall.

Beautiful Hispanic Woman Smiling

Cata 16. Grew up in Georgia with a violent father who grew even more abusive after her mother died. She finally broke her silence, told a school counselor, and Child Protective Services removed her from her home. She lives now in Tennessee with her late mother’s friend, Barbara, but her PTSD and guilt from leaving her brother and sister with their dad has given her chronic insomnia.

ant

Ant

Antonia Gates is a 13-year-old with a uniquely analytical way of seeing the world. Her penchant for boys’ clothes, a chullo hat, and fingerless gloves makes most people assume she’s a boy. She’s obsessive compulsive and is on the autism spectrum (high functioning, with an IQ of 160) and uses tapping, her accessories, and writing in her notebook to self soothe.

The teen playing Ant on Instagram and Twitter is uniquely qualified: she is on the spectrum herself and was my sensitivity reader for the DREAMFALL series!

remi

Remi

Remi, 15, is the survivor of an African genocide, where he witnessed the slaughter of his family. He escaped from the soldiers by playing dead, and was found pinned under the dead body of his older brother by an international rescue organization. He relocated to a refugee cap until his aunt came for him and brought him to Minnesota. He suffers post-traumatic stress disorder, which manifests in night terrors, insomnia, and hyperrealistic flashbacks. He has survivor’s syndrome and crippling guilt for not being able to save his family. In the dreams, his only goal is escape.

george

Georgina (George)

George is 15 and is from Princeton. Sinclair describes her as a “band chick” (black straight shoulder-length hair, straight bangs, cat eyeliner, yin-yang tattoo). She has bone-dry humor, is confident, tough enough to be a little scary, and a clear leader. For some reason, she is the only one who shows up in the nightmares dressed differently each time. (*Hint* this is important) And there is a very good reason I can’t tell you more about her. *cough cough*

sinclair

Sinclair

Sinclair Hartford (17) seems the typical spoiled rich kid from New York’s Upper East Side. But underneath his movie star looks (generated by his subconscious mind…yes, he really thinks he looks like Nicholas Hoult) lurks a dangerous psychopath who cares only about his own survival.

bethann

BethAnn Lindstrom

19. Went to Minnehaha Academy, Minnesota. Crippling insomnia, as well as…other issues.

jaime1

Jaime Salvator

Jaime Salvator (20) is a pre-med student at Yale who is observing the experiment to fulfill a 6-hour field experience requirement. Jaime grew up in a bad neighborhood of Detroit and dreams of opening a free medical clinic in the neighborhood. We see the world outside the Dreamfall (in the lab) from Jaime’s POV. Jaime is torn between helping the subjects who Jaime believes to be dreaming and respecting the authority of the doctors in charge, who believe them to be comatose. Jaime’s gender is never revealed. (Dad Hispanic & mom African-American)
