Dreamscape by Christie Rich BlogTour/Giveaway



Guys I have a real treat for you, welcome to my stop on the...

 
This tour is hosted by CBB Book Promotions and you can find the tour page with the schedule and links by clicking the CBB button at the top of this post.
 
Today I have some pretty awesome stuff here at book addict, Author Christie Rich Is dropping by with a very cool guest post and she also brings a super ubber dupper giveaway for all of you. SQUEEE!!!
 
But First let me show you what this tour is all about.
 
 

Every night before Amelia falls asleep she makes a wish to dream of him – the man who calls her to their beautiful private oasis, her sanctuary where she is free of her greedy landlord’s threats. But tonight, he will not call Amelia to him. Tonight, another man will step into her world to claim her. Tonight, Amelia’s shattering reality will crumble - and disappear into the Dreamscape…along with her freedom.

When Amelia dreams tonight, her nightmare becomes her new world where Seth is her captor and anything is possible…except escape. Seth needs Amelia to break the curse that binds him to the Dreamscape. He must convince her that she was made to free him, that she was made to join him.

For if he fails, he will never escape his prison, and he will lose Earth to the Netherworld where the evil Erobos wait to consume the human realm and everything in it. If he fails, Seth will lose the one thing that matters to him: Amelia.

 

I reviewed this baby a couple of weeks back... yes, yes, it was an ARC LOL!! I loved it BTW so here I am doing shameless promotion for an author that I adore. if you want to read my thoughts on this baby, you can do so HERE.

Now,on to super cool stuff, lets welcome Christie Rich talking about Dream Interpretation and how it helped her write Dreamscape.

Welcome Christie!!!


I’m so excited to be here today on Book Addict with my girl, Karla! Thanks so much for hosting me today!!!
Dreams have always fascinated me, and the idea of interpreting them is even more fascinating. There are people out there that believe dreams are merely our minds way of dealing with events of our day. Other people believe there are hidden meanings to what we dream that can help us traverse our lives.
There are books and websites devoted to helping us interpret our dreams. For example, I used to dream a lot about water.
I actually had the opportunity to incorporate one of the strangest dreams I’ve had into my latest book, Dreamscape. In Dreamscape, every dreamer has their own world, which can be influenced and even manipulated by beings that send humans dreams.
There are beings that influence dreams for good through inspiration and support, while another group fosters evil through nightmares and manipulation. Unfortunately, where Dreamscape starts, the good guys are losing big time.
In fact, Seth, our main male lead, is desperate. He needs to escape his prison and he sets his sights on a girl he thinks can help him. Amelia has no idea her dreams are about to change her life. She dreams about a dark haired boy that woos her and loves her when her life is literally shattering around her.
Seth takes her away from that life and brings her into his nightmare. Although the Dreamscape is amazing and anything is possible, it is also filled with darkness and danger.
On Amelia’s first mission, she is taken to a world where Zed, Seth’s brother, is trying to find a member of his team that was lost in the dream world of one of his dreamers.
Amelia gets an immediate kick in the pants when she faces the Erobos, the bad guys who want her too. Amelia is capable of manipulating dreams and would be an asset for good or evil.
This is where I got to throw in my water dream. In this world, the landscape is a modern Venice, with water highways and skyscrapers that tower above the glass and steel jungle.
The water in this dreamer’s world represents emotions. It’s turbulent, which shows how unstable the dreamer is. In researching for Dreamscape, I learned a lot about dream interpretation and how each element in a dream can give us a clue to how we are dealing with life.
Nabeel is the dreamer in this particular dream. He has the opportunity to change the world for good, but he is about to lose his chance to reach his dream. This is where Amelia steps in and interprets his dream. She helps him understand what he needs to do to secure a grant for the funding of his project for solar power.
It was fun coming up with the meaning behind his dream world, but it is just as much fun to research my own dreams. I found a great website I’d like to share with you today. It’s called Dream Doctor http://www.dreamdoctor.com/ and I dare you to open the page and not get sucked into all the information there, lol. It has a dictionary that kept me busy for days. I found it most helpful when writing Dreamscape, but I look forward to spending more time on the site.
How about you? What is the weirdest dream you’ve ever had? Do you know what it means?

About Christie Rich:
 
I grew up daydreaming about fairytales, and my love for discovering new worlds has never died. I am not one of those writers who always knew I would write. I thought that was what other people did until one day, a few years ago, I took a challenge from a friend and typed my first words. My journey has been wonderful, and I cannot imagine a day where I would ever give up writing. My love for reading is what fueled my imagination in the first place and still does. When I am not writing or reading, I enjoy family time with my husband and two children.  My family and I live in a quiet community  in Northern Utah, and I am so thankful for the rich life I have been blessed with.
