Dream Waters: Book One of The Dream Waters Series

(The first book is on sale for $0.99)

by Erin A. Jensen

Dream Waters #1

Genre: Contemporary Fantasy


All his life, Charlie Oliver has watched the people around him morph into creatures that no one else sees.  Unlike the rest of the world, Charlie remembers the Waters that transport him to the Dream World each night.  And he sees glimpses of people’s Dream forms in the waking world.  Condemned to spend his waking hours in a psychiatric facility because of his Dream Sight, Charlie doesn’t expect anything to change.  But everything starts changing the day Emma Talbot walks through the door in the middle of a group therapy session.

Haunted by memories of the events that led to her admission, Emma plans to end her life the first chance she gets.  But something about Charlie stops her.  From the moment they shake hands, his friendship feels safe and familiar.  As Emma begins to let down her guard, Charlie catches a glimpse of the fiery-eyed dragon that lurks behind her Dream form.  Each night, as Emma dreams of the man who’s been banned from visiting, Charlie searches the Dream World for the monster that shadows her.  But when Emma’s suppressed memories begin to surface, Charlie finds more monsters than he bargained for.

Enjoy the Excerpt

“Where were you afraid I’d land when I fell in and why did you say finding the dragon wouldn’t be easy?”

She started drawing waves in the sand with her finger and I got the distinct impression she was doing it to avoid looking at me. “Honestly Charlie, I wasn’t sure where you’d land. It’s unpredictable when you don’t jump on purpose. You could end up anywhere the people you’ve met have been. You’re a mental patient. Can you imagine the sections of Dream some patients might inhabit?” Her finger stopped drawing mid-wave. “Trust me boy. There are Dark places in the Dream World, places you should never go. Venture too far into them and you risk losing a part of yourself to the Darkness.”

I was really getting tired of the cryptic shit. “Great. Thanks for the vague ominous warning. I was afraid you might give me an actual answer for a second there.”

“I’ve already said too much.” Even at a whisper there was a waver to her voice. “Just thank me for keeping you safe and jump back into the Water.”

“I don’t know which world I find you more annoying in.” It wasn’t the nicest thing to say to the one person who understood me but I said it out of frustration and maybe a little out of fear.

Nellie was about to snarl something back, but the leaves of some bushes just off the beach started rustling and I hopped to my feet to get a better look. “Something’s over there.”

Nellie stood up with a weary sigh and as she turned toward the bushes I saw the scars. Large deep identical scars marring the flesh on both of her shoulder blades.

I took a step closer to her. “What happened to your back?”

She turned and gave me a hard shove toward the Water’s edge. “It’s time for you to go now Charlie.” It caught me by surprise and knocked me off balance, back into the surf and the icy Water pulled me back in.”

    This looks like a fascinating world.

  5. Peggy says:

    Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and, if so, how do you overcome it?

    • Erin Jensen says:

      I don’t really have trouble with writer’s block, Peggy. A great deal of the story line for my Dream Waters series has been in my head for years, not so patiently waiting to be written. And I’ve already begun writing my next stand alone novel — unrelated to the series — because I couldn’t wait to get started on it. When I’m in a bit of a funk, I use that negative energy to write a portion of the story that fits my current mood. My biggest problem isn’t lack of material, it’s lack of time to capture it all on paper.

  6. What gorgeous cover. As an author, how much input do you have in the final product?
    sherry @ fundinmental

    • Erin Jensen says:

      Thank you, Sherry! I’m an indie author, so I have the final say in everything. I can’t imagine doing it any other way. The first cover designer I hired for Dream Waters (Book 1 in the series) came up with a concept that was nothing like what I’d envisioned. His design was all done in muted shades of brown and black, even though I’d sent him lots of examples of brilliant blue covers and told him that was what I was looking for. We parted ways soon after because we didn’t see eye to eye, and thank goodness we did because my husband gave it a go next. Turns out, he is a brilliant cover designer and he is willing to start all over at any point in the process if his design doesn’t quite grab me. My books are so precious to me. I can’t imagine letting someone else have the final say in any part of the process.

  7. Erin Jensen says:

  9. Rita Wray says:

    Sounds like a great read.

  10. Daniela Ark says:

    Dream worlds is a the me that has always fascinated my in fantasy! I don’t think I’ve actually read any book about dreams but only watch movies! Monsters in dreams is always entertaining!

    • Erin Jensen says:

      I agree, Daniela. The Dream World is a fun concept in fantasy! I would love to see my series on the big screen some day! People are always telling me they think my books would make great movies.

      • Daniela Ark says:

        Hi Erin! I think it is fantastic that you visit your tour stops and interact with us bloggers!

        It may sound like the obvious thing to do but not all authors do it and that was one of the reason I got bored doing tours. No interaction whatsoever! I hosted tours for a year, had tours at least twice a week and only ONE author stop to interact with the visitors that were commenting! And it wasn’t my blog only I notice the same trend on other blogs.

        I visited your website and blog and loved it! I did it from my iPhone so that’s why I didn’t leave a comment [because UGH it’s terrible to comment from my post but I’ll do it now!]

        One of my all-time favorites movies is about dream worlds [ “What Dreams May Come”] so I hope your books make it to the big screen!

  11. Lilyn G says:

    The synopsis to that first book is tempting, and I love the blues of the cover. Nice work!

  12. Bernie Wallace says:

    What book would you like to see a prequel to? Thanks for the giveaway. I hope that I win.

  13. Victoria says:

    Thanks for sharing the great excerpt & beautiful covers!

  14. These covers are stunning and the stories sound tempting too.
