It’s nowhere near Halloween, but when you write horror, the time never seems to move or shift out of that month or realm. The calender becomes a place only for projects and deadlines – and, well, a few birthdays along the way. Thus is the life of us all in the writing biz.
That out of the way … I wanted to share the trailer for the series I am currently writing: Night Dreams. The series (serialized fiction) follows a Dream Psychologist, Dr. Joseph Rickettes, who has no choice but to live out the nightmares of his patients in hopes of curing them of their demons. He is bound by the demons in their dreams, while he struggles to make sense of the nightmares that plague his own life.
Each episode is in the 20,000 word range and carries the story from his childhood, when he discovered his gift, to Joseph meeting his wife, Andrea, and beyond.
Episode One – The Beginning focuses on how it all started for Joseph and how he came to possess his power, or curse, to delve into and live out, the nightmares of others.
Episode Two – Andrea’s Demon answers questions about Andrea’s nightmares and the demon that haunts her. Joseph’s gift is severely tested by the demon out to crossover into the real world and take his wife’s soul. Joseph battles his own demons as his wife, marriage, and life are all put in jeopardy.
Episode Three – Rising Darkness takes Andrea’s story further and into a darker, more evil place, and into a battle with something Joseph never could have imagined.
The complete series will have at least six episodes. Thanks for reading and watching!
