Have you read Forced Dreams yet?

Have you read Forced Dreams yet?

Posted by admin | May 22, 2019 | Uncategorized

First it was a novel, then I adapted it into a screenplay

Back in the mid 1980’s I wrote several screenplays. Forced Dreamswas the second one following Prophecy of Thol, which was titled Second Chance back then.

Frankly, I didn’t really know how to write and I stumbled through novels and screenplays. A lot of my work sat in a file collecting digital dust over the decades.

A few years ago I went in search of Forced Dreams and read through it, updated it (like a major rewrite that took weeks!), had the cover designed — THANK YOU MARCHA FOX — and shoved it out the door.

I love this story. I hope you give it a try. Please leave a review when you finish reading it.

When the boundaries blur between dreams and reality…

Forced Dreams by Dawn Greenfield Ireland  is a science fiction romantic adventure about  a woman must learn to trust her dream lover.

Here’s the synopsis:

What if you learned that everything you thought you knew about your quiet, ordinary life was a lie?

And what if you discovered that a far-away world in trouble, an insane rebel, and coming to grips with your husband’s death had more in common than you’d ever suspect?

Alma fears for her sanity and the safety of her children in a dangerous adventure that takes her to the depths of space, where a vehicle isn’t even necessary.

Please leave a review after you read the book!

Writing update as of 5/20/19

Love of Thol is sitting at 80,709 words and 368 pages.

There are two more events to write about, then it’s done. Maybe another 20-30 pages? I’m not sure. Everything is checked off my outline. I’ve also been outlining the next book, no title yet, but it will be #4 in the series.

Tidbit of information:

I’ve managed to create a comfortable balance between marketing and writing.

Mornings are spent marketing to Facebook groups and other places online. If I finish my allotment for the day early, I move on to working on a novel.

If not, I spend the afternoon in the writing cave. Things try to pull me away: texts, phone calls, emails, vacuuming twelve tons of cat hair, laundry, the kitchen sink, cooking.

Honestly, while I love writing, its easy to get distracted. But, I should let you know that these distractions help me plow through the plot in my head. Then I’ll return to the writing cave, aka my office, and write like a fiend.

I’m on Patreon!

All the famous artists, writers, and painters had patrons. Help me stay afloat. Become my patron. I’ll love you forever if you contribute to my paper, ink, formatting and publishing expenses.

Please… hire an editor!

Why would you invest time and effort to write a book, then fling it out on Amazon when it hasn’t even been edited?

You might as well whack yourself in the shin for all the good it will do you.

My red pen and eagle eyes are waiting for your editing project!

If your book is ready to be edited, hit reply and send me an email. We can go over your details and I will let you know how I work with authors and how much I would charge for your project.

If it has words, I can edit it with one exception: poetry. This is not my expertise and I would be doing you a disservice to offer to edit a poem.

I edit fiction, nonfiction, manuals, user guides, white papers — just about anything corporate.

Let me know if I can help YOU!

Onward & upward!
