Carter Franklin’s fantasy life dominated his childhood,
until the day his father died. Blaming himself for the accident that took his
father's life, Carter replaces the magic of his youth with the solemn
responsibilities of adulthood. Years later, the creatures of his imagination
return, forcing him to question both the nature of reality and his own
sanity. Carter soon discovers that the playground of his childhood, a
world he called The Beastlands, is real, and that his once imaginary friend, a
cheetah named Roary, always believed Carter to be the imaginary one.
In the Beastlands, humans are mythical creatures who
act as spirit guides to animal shamans, known as dreamers. When the Great Bear
of Death threatens to enslave Roary's friends and family, the young cheetah dreamer
must reconnect with his human totem and convince Carter to embrace his lost
imagination and the spiritual link they share. Together, Carter, Roary and a
cast of human and animal companions must protect the Beastlands from the demons
of its past, while uncovering the mysterious truth about the accident that
killed Carter’s father.

I like the sound of this. I seem to recall knowing a young man that questioned reality when he was in high school.ReplyDelete
Is there a release date, or where I can I get it if it is already out?
Lol. True. As they say, write what you know. :-)Delete
I'm currently in the agent-acquiring stage and hoping to find one by the end of the year. If things work out and the book sells in 2013 it will hopefully be on the shelves the following year. It's a much longer process (if you aren't Stephen King) to get a novel on the shelf than people realize.
Thanks for your interest. I'll be posting development blogs over the next few weeks if you want to find out more.
