Amy Plum’s Dreamfall Novel Optioned for TV Series

Amy Plum’s thriller Dreamfall has been optioned by DiGa for a TV series

YA writer Amy Plum‘s novel “Dreamfall” has been optioned by DiGa Studios to be made into a TV series, according to Deadline. The novel has yet to be published, though it’s expected to be released on May 2, 2017 by HarperTeen. It’s the first book of her newest YA horror duology. The sequel “Neverwake” will be released in May 2018. The story is about an experiment to cure chronic insomnia that goes terribly wrong. The teenage subjects of the experiment fall into a joint coma, and, like the urban myth, if you die in your dream, you die in real life.

Here is the Amazon description for “Dreamfall”: “Seven teenagers who suffer from debilitating insomnia agree to take part in an experimental new procedure to cure it because they think it can’t get any worse. But they couldn’t be more wrong. When the lab equipment malfunctions, the patients are plunged into a terrifying dreamworld where their worst nightmares have come to life—and they have no memory of how they got there. Hunted by monsters from their darkest imaginations and tormented by secrets they’d rather keep buried, these seven strangers will be forced to band together to face their biggest fears. And if they can’t find a way to defeat their dreams, they will never wake up.”

DiGa Studios, known for MTV’s Teen Wolf and Scream, is currently in production on the feature film Eat Brains Love, which is also based on a novel. “Amy Plum’s ‘Dreamfall’ is a riveting, nightmarish thriller with great characters and a fantastic premise that immediately captured our imagination and drew us in,” DiSanto, CEO of DiGaa Studios told the site. “The book’s vision and voice is a perfect fit for DIGA’s creative sensibility, and we are thrilled to bring this to the screen.”

Plum is most well known for her “Die For Me” series, which was an international best-seller. She’s also known for the “After the End” series. Have you guys read “Dreamfall?” Are you interested in the film? Who would you like to see cast? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @ComingSoonnet

Can you believe it, friends? I can’t! I am so freaking excited about this, I can’t even tell you.

I’ve had readers write me on FB and Twitter saying, “Congratulations! Now when will DIE FOR ME be adapted?”

To be totally honest, if the release of DREAMFALL in exactly one week is a success, it will greatly help DIE FOR ME’s chances at becoming a movie. (Which is being worked on as I speak. Or type. Whatever.)

So if you’re excited about DREAMFALL, but also hoping to see DIE FOR ME brought to the screen, please do your best to help DREAMFALL be a roaring success its first week out. Tell your friends. And I would be honored if you pre-ordered the book. Below are some links.

And to all of you…THANK YOU!!! You have all brought me and my books this far. I can’t wait to see how much further we can go!

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!
