June 1st 2018 - I'm currently about 60% of the way through the third draft of my third book - Dreamonologist. I have experienced a really different revision this time around. For Dream Job, and The Nightmare Maker, I just wrote whatever came into my head, then I had to trim. This time I plotted out everything well in advance. This resulted in a really tight narrative. So tight in fact that it was only about 250 pages, contained about three laughs, and was basically pure exposition to move from one plot point to another. A bit more than half way through the third draft, I am now up to 380 pages, and there is a real depth of character and well-realized arcs forming. Really excited to get this draft completed and release it to some beta-readers. I think it will be my best book yet.
The Nightmare Maker - Book two of the Dreamwalker Chronicles
Julian Adler is a husband, a father, and London's only Dreamwatcher, putting his magic and steel between the city's sleepers and their most terrifying nightmares. Now one of those nightmares has taken his wife away to unimaginable torments in another dimension—and Julian has vowed to get her back.
Spending his nights casting spells to find his wife and his days raising their daughter, Julian has abandoned his duty to protect the city. But when a serial killer nicknamed the Anarchist starts using dream-magic to butcher bankers in their beds, Julian can't ignore the corpses. Soon, supernatural detectives, secret societies, and the priests of forgotten gods are promising to help Julian get his wife back—if he can stop the murders.
Who should Julian trust? If he can't find his wife, why does everyone think that he can stop the killer? Fortunately, the fate of the world doesn't depend on his success…or does it?
Dream Job - the debut Urban Fantasy novel from Gregory Pettit
Meet Julian Adler, twenty-something, married, and London's one-and-only Dreamwalker. Striding through the Dreamscape, he battles the worst monsters that a sleeping metropolis can imagine, but flinging fire and swinging steel he makes them burn and bleed.
Slaying imaginary monsters doesn't pay very well though, so Julian spends his days at an ordinary office job. Ordinary that is, until a beautiful witch walks through his office door and tries to put a spell on him. When the spell goes wrong, an eldritch horror is unleashed into the real world, bodies start to pile up, and Julian's magic is the only thing that might be able to send it, shrieking, back into oblivion.
Can Julian find a way to lure the demon back to the Dreamscape, or will it drag his family, his city, and the entire world into a nightmare that never ends?
