My very talented and wonderful friend J.J. DiBenedetto joins us today. Let’s give him a warm welcome!
This weekend is my second anniversary of becoming a published author. Two years ago yesterday, March 20, 2013, I released the first four books of the Dream Series. I had no idea at the time what it would lead to. There have been so many things I never expected:
Selling over 8,000 copies of my books so far, and giving away nearly 80,000 free copies of my first book, DREAM STUDENT.
Hearing my books recorded as professional-quality audiobooks.
Working with an actress I watched on TV – “Doctor Who” star Nicola Bryant, who recorded a short story that’s part of the Dream Series.
Writing four more books (and another one coming soon!).
Having my books translated into five (yes, five!) different languages.
Meeting so many friendly, generous, amazing fellow authors (like my wonderful host Shanna!).
It’s really been a great journey, and what’s best about it is that this is still only the start. There is a long, long way to go, and I have no idea where it will end up…
To celebrate my anniversary, I’ve got a fantastic sale going on – the DREAM SEQUENCE box set including the first three books of the Dream Series, is on sale for just $0.99. You can find it on Amazon, Audible.com, Barnes & Noble, Apple and Google Play. Here’s a little more about it:
Sara Barnes thought her life was perfectly ordinary – until the night she began stepping into other people’s dreams.
Follow Sara as she learns to cope with this extraordinary gift (or curse) in the first three books of the Dream Series:
It’s bad enough that, thanks to her supernatural talent, Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer – and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next.
Medical school and life as a newlywed would be enough by themselves for anybody to handle. But Sara’s got another problem – her dreams have started up again. Almost everyone at the medical school is dreaming about the death of the school’s least popular teacher, Dr. Morris, and once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.
Sara thought she had made peace with her dreaming talent, but she’s got a surprise coming: her four-year-old daughter has inherited it, too. Unraveling a mystery with lives on the line is difficult enough under the best of circumstances. But when Sara has to view all the evidence through the eyes – and dreams – of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.
I’ll also do a giveaway – just comment on this post for a chance to win a signed paperback copy of the Dream Series book of your choice!
Huge congrats to J.J. for all his success and Happy Anniversary! 🙂
