Dreamwalkers Series by Jody Wallace #Interview & #Sale #urbanfantasy #giveaway

A long time ago in an email far, far away...

Jody Wallace invited me to take part in a fun but bizarre interview for her books. That's correct. SHE interviewed ME about HER books. Weird but original, right? Well, after a slight delay you finally get to read the interview. Even better, her books are on sale right now so you get to find out what all the weirdness is about too. :P


The premise of the Dreamwalkers series is that certain human brains are so vivid that their nightmares can come to life and eat people. The heroes and heroines (so far) are the folks who fight these monsters and hide their existence from the rest of the world. Oftentimes these nightmares take the shape of popular culture creations, but sometimes there are classics.

JW: 1) What are the scariest movies, TV and books you can think of?

PJ: Anything under horror! I can't watch them at all. But Alien is the one that freaks me out the most and has me sleeping with my pillow over my mouth to keep potential face-huggers at bay (yeah, like that would work). >.< Closely followed by the really classic Hollywood zombie movies. I mean, I like some zombies (R from Warm Bodies) and I even wrote a zombie novella, but the general brain-eating, chasing-you-down-dark-alleys kind - nope.

2) What monsters do you think your brain would create? (Caveat: real world human monsters don't tend to get created, just things like vampires and mega spiders, and the size of the monster tends to be between 3-12 feet. If your nightmare is more of an "event", like falling or appearing in public naked, I bet there's a monster that represents that kind of horror!)

Eww! Um, probably something crossed with the entire arachnid cast of Eight Legged Freaks, and undead. And Alien-esque. And that trips over its own tentacles and squelchy extendable mouths (because I'm a klutz and tripping over in front of loads of people is one of my biggest fears). That should do it.

3) What kind of dreamwalker hero or heroine do you think would be required to dispatch your nightmares (Romance optional!)

Lots! Preferably male, preferably nice eyes, but if you have any Black Widow-esque type heroines, you could slip me one or two of those as well.

4) Do you want me to write an example of your nightmares being utterly destroyed? To get this extra benefit, though, you will need to do something for me, which is pay me in praise and high fives.

Gee, you'd need a whole army of dreamwalkers, which is an awful lot of books, and an awful lot of high fives. You might want to put on an armored glove to protect your hand...

5) Bonus question: What pop culture monsters do you think the dreamwalkers have the most trouble killing?

Vampires, because they never seem to go away. :P


Premise of series:

In the world of the Dreamwalkers, some dreams are so vivid they create monsters. The Somnium exists to destroy those monsters, keep them out of the public eye--and control the dreamers whose imaginations are nightmares manifest. But something has wakened in the dreamsphere. Something that's beyond anyone's worst nightmare.

Dreams don’t come true, but nightmares do.
When Zeke Garrett is reactivated to mentor the next dreamer that pops up on the Somnium’s radar, he’s sure it’s a mistake. The covert organization is still struggling to conceal the fallout from his last assignment, a fatal catastrophe.
From the first blast of her pepper spray, he realizes this neonati, whose nightmares manifest vampires straight from the pages of pop-culture, is more than he bargained for—a potential dreamwalker. But before her training can begin, he has to convince the stubborn, mouthy woman she’s not dreaming.
Maggie Mackey hasn’t slept well in a month, but that doesn’t explain how the monsters from her nightmares suddenly seem so real. Or why, when a team of intimidating, sword-wielding toughs rescue her, their leader captures her mouth in a swift, knee-weakening kiss.
Once he tears himself away, Zeke’s mental forehead smacking begins. Their embrace has confirmed they have a rare tangible bond, a phenomenon which fooled him once before. Somehow he must tutor the woman of his dreams without getting attached. Otherwise her nightmares could become his own.
Warning: Title contains lots of cussing, pop culture references and monsters with nasty, big, pointy teeth.


Conquer your inner demons…before they break free.
When student dreamwalker Maggie Mackey was first discovered by Zeke Garrett, now her mentor, their sexual attraction blazed off the charts, as did their tangible dreamspace bond.
Three months later, their relationship is as stalled out as Maggie’s training. Zeke isn’t sure what’s to blame. His clumsy mentoring, Maggie’s stubbornness, or something more sinister.
When the pair is summoned to a restricted outpost for troubled and sick dreamwalkers to investigate the deaths of several patients, a nightmare from Zeke’s past resurfaces to further complicate Maggie’s training. In fact, there’s a better-than-good chance she’ll be yanked away from him and reassigned to a curator. Disciples sent to curators are rarely heard from again.
To survive the secretive inner workings of their organization and the deadly new force emerging inside the sphere, Maggie and Zeke must confront their inner demons as well as their feelings for each other. Because in the world of the dreamwalkers, inner demons never remain politely inside one’s tortured soul. They prefer to manifest…and eat people.

Warning: Book contains sex, cursing, more cursing, T-Rexes, dire peril and explosives.
