I’m very excited about my new book release, Mystic’s Touch.
The world they live in is fantasy – a kingdom and a culture based on ancient Egypt. It was great being able to live in that place, in my head, for a while. And the characters were fun. I was surprised when two more of the hero’s friends showed up half way through the book!
And it all started with a dream.
Yup! I dreamed about my characters before they ever landed on the page. It just took a couple of years to figure who they were and what they were trying to tell me.
I don’t always remember my dreams, but some have been doozies! I try to record the really interesting ones so I can figure out what was on my mind or what the universe was trying to tell me. More than one of those may end up in a story someday.
Once I dreamed about getting a new job before being called for an interview. Then there was the time I dreamed that the place I used at was falling down – as in, the building was being evacuated in my dream because it was crumbling. A short while later a buy-out was announced. I’ve been told by friends that still work there that the company is no longer the same place.
A couple of years ago I had a dream about my son being kidnapped that freaked me out so bad I disabled his online gaming account for weeks. I hope that one NEVER comes true. *shudders*
And, naturally, there have been a few dreams that could only be recorded with adult-content labels. *blushes*
Dreams are important to Danet and Ceros, the main characters in Mystic’s Touch. They see each other in dreams for years before ever meeting. Their soul-deep bond strengthens their relationship and makes it hard to resist. No matter the odds.
Have you ever had a significant dream? One that came true or one that was so vivid it stuck with you for days after waking?

When Prince Ceros returns home to take his place on the throne, he falls prey to a mysterious malady that leaves him unable to speak or move, though his thoughts and awareness remain intact. Danet, a talented healer, realizes the prince is alert inside his body. The two are able to share thoughts telepathically. Unfortunately her connection with Ceros may bring unwanted attention to her abilities and result in her banishment from the city.
Their unique bond grows as Danet races to find a remedy for the prince’s condition. Desire turns to love, which makes Danet fear for their future when he awakens. They seek out the villain attempting to take the throne and endeavor to find a way to stay together.
Inside Scoop: Ceros’ secret shifter status adds complication and intrigue to their budding romance.

I have had several dreams that have come true, and several that were extremely eerie in nature. My sister knows to listen to me if I tell her to do something or if I tell her I have a bad feeling about something. I’ve had several dreams that stayed with me for an extremely long time, some even leaving me depressed. Strange.
Isn’t strange how our mind works even as we rest, Micelle? I have some nights where I’d swear I dreamed nothing and others that are so vivid and colorful they stick with me for days.
Dena Garson is fabulous. Mystic’s Touch sounds like a perfect Valentine’s Day read.
I have a reacurring dream about a house. I have never seen this house before but yet in my dreams that is where I live. Maybe someday I will find this house and live there!! 😆
Awww – Thanks, Kat!
Actually, Dawn, I’ve read that a house in your dreams represents you. Each room reference different parts of your psyche. Attic = intellect, basement = subconscious. Having no walls means you lack privacy. Empty house indicates insecurities. Check into it! Your subconscious could be telling you something!
But if it’s a grand home, I hope you find it!!
Mystic’s Touch sounds excellent. I love everything based on ancient Egypt. I’ve had dreams that have come true and certain ones (my daughter once was eaten by an alligator) that thankfully have not.
Since you mentioned two of the hero’s friends showing up, do you plan to write their story as well?
Thanks, Linda! I love Egyptian myths and am fascinated by the pyramids and all the ancients left behind.
Yes, I’ve already started a follow up story that includes the two friends. They were such a fun addition I couldn’t leave them out!
And I’m glad your daughter hasn’t been eaten by an alligator!
Sometimes dreams will come true in odd ways. I will do some things with out thinking and they have saved me from a situation.
You’re right, Pat!
Yes, I’ve had dreams such as that. One last year pertained to my unborn grand daughter. There was a bruhaha over her announcement that didn’t go well. It had me very upset and I had a dream about Mckynley. Unfortunately, in mid November my son and daughter in law lost their baby due to a stillborn birth. Then a day later I dreamed that my dad was in heaven walking around with Mckynley in his arms. That’s what my dad did with all the grandkids. That gave me some peace.
Awww – Ginger, that’s such a sad/sweet story! I’m sure it was comforting to you.
I occasionally have dreams where I am wandering around through a hotel trying to find my room…congrats and good luck with the new release!
The story is so very interesting. I definitely like a shared mind that brings 2 together. Dreams, because of the meds I take, I don’t have them. I day dream though, especially when reading, because I can become a part of the story. 🙂
Thanks, ELF! I’m going to have to look up what a hotel means.
Suzanne, I day dream a lot. Especially during long boring meetings. LOL
Reading only makes it worse because then I’m wondering what else would have happened to the characters.
