The Devil's Sleep Study

Well, Mark is either really awesome or a total glutton for punishment. Either way, Mark, again, I appreciate the opportunity to step into your blog and say whatever I darn well feel like. Seriously, thank you for having me on your blog, this week. It’s been a wonderful experience and I’ll happily do this again, anytime.


Today, I’d like to take a minute to introduce you to one of my works that you will be seeing, very soon. I’ve got quite a few coming out, so I hope you’ll stay tuned. Picking one to discuss with you was tough. There’s a lot of great works and fun storylines coming your way. However, today, I’m going to discuss a little about a book that should be coming late August. It is titled The Devil’s Sleep Study. The cover is in my hot little hands and I’m especially thankful to Just Write Creations for this brilliant, perfect cover.


Anyway, on to the goods. The Devil’s Sleep Study is a book about a husband and wife who are bound for divorce court. He hates her. She hates him. The friction between them is borderline dangerous. For some reason, rather than granting their divorce, the judge orders the couple into marriage counseling. The husband is especially resistant to this, though the wife isn’t super complacent, either. She already has her eye on someone else and she’s got fantasies about new love and romance.


The couple goes to the counseling appointment, expecting to discuss their feelings. They do, for a brief time. Then, the counselor offers them a “new” therapy. There is a dream machine where the couple can program their dreams. They can dream anything they want. They can share interactive dreams, or they can dream independently. This is a “test study,” so, in exchange for their participation, the couple will be awarded ten-thousand dollars after six months. The ten-thousand dollars will go a long way to helping resolve some of the couple’s issues. It’s only six months, after all.


The couple is to take turns programming the interactive nightly dreams. At first, this seems to be the best thing the couple has ever done. However, as time passes, the wife becomes addicted to sleeping because she can have everything she’s ever wanted in her dreams. When she sleeps independently, who is she dreaming of? Maybe she wants her husband, after all. But, what if she doesn’t? What if it takes less than six months for everything to come unraveled?
