Halloween Conspiracy

Greetings, Dreamers!

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

The book is currently on sale on all  eBook formats for $4.99 (USD) on Amazon, Nook and on iTunes.

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.

Be sure to tune in on The Book Report Radio with Elaine Charles to hear my first ever radio interview.  Airing on-line and ten radio markets on October 27th 2013 between 4-5 PM (EST)

I will also be doing a guest blog post on the influences of H.P. Lovecraft on my writing for a horror blog in the UK, so stay tuned for details!

 

Welcome to Devlin

DevlinGreetings, Dreamers!

With the release of my book, Devlin, I wanted to tell you a little more about it to give you an idea of what you are in for.

If you happen to be traveling in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, north of Charlottesville, you may be strangely dawn to a tiny, hidden town, nestled far away from the bustle of the modern world.  Its cobbled streets are lined with an eclectic collection of homes and buildings, adding to the uniqueness of the town itself.  From the quaint shops that line Rowe Street, to the Gothic Church of St. Michael, to the Autumn House Bed and Breakfast, Devlin is picturesque, peaceful and pastoral.

It has been hidden away from the world for over two centuries, and when I say hidden, I mean that only certain people can find it, and only if the town wants to be found.  Life has continued this way for the people of Devlin since the late 1700s, living self-sufficiently in peace and harmony, but that is about to change.

Beginning this Autumn, the people of Devlin uncover the truth behind the establishment of their town and discover an ancient plot that has spanned centuries, threatening the very existence of their town and the rest of the world. And as the town performs their yearly Halloween ritual, the world will never be the same.

Devlin is much more than dark fantasy.  It has elements of horror, paranormal, supernatural, and metaphysical.  Devlin has something for everyone.  I am an avid gamer; console, PC and role-play. The Waking Dream is nothing more than an exploration of our reality as a cosmic game. You can read more about the Waking Dream Universe in the following posts.
