Its getting close to Halloween and I wanted to give you some information about Waking Dream and upcoming events!
Many reviews are coming in on the book, and they are 5 stars, so in that I am truly humbled. I wanted to take a moment and give a little more information about the book and hopefully piqué your curiosity in picking up your copy today!
The town of Devlin is at the centre of a conspiracy that has been in motion for centuries. One dark immortal will begin his plot to take over the world and cloak our planet in eternal twilight, beginning on Halloween — this coming Halloween. Waking Dream: Devlin begins with events on October 26, 2013. Over the thirteen chapters and six days, the world will be dramatically changed, setting the stage for the next two books in the series.
Writing this book required outlining all nine novels to ensure continuity, and to not expose too much as we move forward on this adventure which will follow our present day time-line. Waking Dream: Devlin is not easily classifiable in any one genre as it has elements of the paranormal, supernatural, horror and science fiction. Here are just a few excerpts of the reviews about the series:
“Devlin itself put me in mind of a grown up version of Hogsmeade. Just because you didn’t get your letter from Hogwarts doesn’t mean you can’t be Awakened to your particular ability–that can happen at any time in your life. So take heart!
The events of the book take place in the autumn and there’s magic and the lifting of the veil in a very big way so it’s the perfect book for this time of year.” – V.L Craven (Autodidact in the Attic)
“If you like reading about the Paranormal then “Devlin” is a must read and you will deepen your knowledge of the power of weird itself.
Become a Dreamer, embrace your weirdness to break free from a world of sleepers & peer into the truth of your own Waking Dream as I have with this unique author, Michael Hibbard.” – Thérèse Wood of (Grimnian Promotions)
“From start to finish I felt that the Waking Dream was real. This beautiful work of fiction brings not just a story, but a new life philosophy to the table. That coupled with the characters and their real relationships with each other kept the book in my hands until the end. The way the characters interacted with each other was real and not forced or unbelievable like a lot of fantasy. I can’t wait to see what other Weirdness awaits in the next book. Don’t forget to share this book with friends and fellow Dreamers.” – Justin Miller
I hope you’ll take a chance to read it, and give me feed back so I know what direction you would like me to take with the series. This is not only my dream, its is all of our dreams.
