I’m not sure that I blogged about it when it happened, but a few months ago my role at World Weaver Press expanded from Anthologist to include a new spiffy Assistant Editor title, and today I get to announce the first book I have acquired for them in that role. You are going to love this book. No. Seriously. It’s amazing. It’s got–well, maybe before I tell you what its got, I should tell you what it’s called 🙂
Dream Eater, by K. Bird Lincoln is a Japanese-inspired urban fantasy novel with so. many. characters that you’re going to fall in love with. Trust me on this one.
Her whole life she’s avoided other people. Any skin-to-skin contact–a hug from her sister, the hand of a barista at Stumptown coffee–transfers flashes of that person’s most intense dreams. It’s enough to make anyone a hermit.
But Koi’s getting her act together. No matter what, this time she’s going to finish her degree at Portland Community College and get a real life. Of course it’s not going to be that easy. Her father, increasingly disturbed from Alzheimer’s disease, a dream fragment of a dead girl from the casual brush of a creepy PCC professor’s hand, and a mysterious stranger who speaks the same rare Northern Japanese dialect as Koi’s father will force Koi to learn to trust in the help of others, as well as face the truth about herself.
I don’t want to spoil any surprises but this story has got so many elements that made me love it that I know anyone reading this blog will love it too *cough*corvid*cough*.
We don’t have a cover yet, so I’m using an image of koi to accompany this blog post, because did you see what the main character’s name is? Koi!
Dream Eater is coming out next year but you can add it to your Goodreads ‘Want to Read’ shelf today. In fact, you should do that right now… go on. You know you wanna 😉
