Prep for the Dream Sequence Blogfest!

For all of you guys who have signed up to take part in the fabulous Dream Sequence Blogfest coming to us on June 4th, I have a very special link!

Valerie at As The Moon Climbs has put together a discussion of fortune telling in writing, and how it can be used effectively, including but not limited to, the prophetic dream! Definitely check it out-- if not for the info she presents (which is excellent) than for the examples she uses, including a short excerpt of a dream from one of my books! Head on over and talk about the trials and tribulations of fortune telling in your own books, or books which you have read! Fortune telling is a tricky thing to do well and right in a book, even trickier to do it in a way that isn't cliche.

And don't forget to sign up for the Dream Sequence Blogfest, either! :)

  3. Nice excerpt over at Moon Climbs, Amalia! I used tarot heavily in my first book. In fact the characters were all based on tarot archetypes. But dreams? Argh! Can't wait to see what I come up with. :)

  4. We will be excited to have you, Julie!

    Mia, you are welcome!

    VR: Thanks! I was feeling like it was kind of crap in retrospect, to be honest, so I'm glad you didn't hate it. Also, your book sounds pretty interesting! And I can't wait to see what your dream sequence will be, too! :)

  5. Interesting! I suppose I do have a fortune teller type character in my book, but no prophetic dreams. Hmmm...

  6. Good insights. I love a good foreshadowing dream. Reminds me of my medieval fantasy fan days...
