So at dinner last night my husband told one of our guests, “Yeah, she has a book coming out tomorrow.” Looking up in shock, I said, “I do? Oh wait, I do!!” Somehow all the work I was doing to prepare for it last week got lost in line edits over the weekend. But it’s official. Deadly Dreams hits the shelves today.
I’m always a bit jazzed to have a new release. This is number 30 for me and it hasn’t gotten old yet. But this one sort of snuck up on me. The nice thing about that is I’m not obsessing over it…I darn near forgot about it altogether!
Deadly Dreams is book five in The Mindhunters series, although it stands alone well, as do the rest of the books. Here’s the back cover copy:
Risa Chandler’s prescient dreams of death and murder haunted her nights. They also proved invaluable for Adam Raiker’s brilliant team of forensic criminologists, the Mindhunters, until a tragic end to one of her cases shattered Risa’s confidence and drove her into seclusion. But for Risa, there’s no hiding from death, or from her dreams.
Though skeptical, Philadelphia homicide detective Nate McGuire elists Risa’s help in finding a serial killer who has claimed three victims. She reluctantly agrees, because she’s been dreaming again–rituals by fire, charred horrors, tortured screams. But Risa’s feeling something else: the focus of a stranger who’s watching her just as closely, a madman with dreams of his own–dreams of making Risa his ultimate fiery sacrifice.

Somehow when I think of psychic abilities I consider the advantages of being clairvoyant and being able to guess the lottery numbers, LOL. But dreaming of murder? I like my sleep, thank you very much! The psychic abilities you hear about people being blessed–or cursed with can be downright frightening.
What’s the scariest movie or book that you’ve read that features a character with some sort of psychic ability? I’m giving away a copy of Deadly Dreams to one commenter today!
