"Dream Frequency" by S.J. Lomas!

Hiya peeps! I've got a sequel to share with you today.

I shared the first book in the series (Dream Girl), including a Top Ten post of too listened to songs by the author, a couple years ago. Now, the sequel is finally released, and I'm excited to share it with you today!

Dream Frequency

 Dream Frequency
~Released: June 30th, 2017

~Length: 413 Pages

Christine would never have considered herself new recruit material for a secret U.S. agency. Until recently, she's just been an ordinary girl graduating from high school and wondering if a friendship with Gabriel, a mysterious coworker, would grow into something romantic. When Christine's fascination with Gabriel leads to her discovery of dreamworlds, she learns that she's anything but ordinary. In this thrilling conclusion to Dream Girl, Christine and Gabriel must choose their allegiances and face corruption, conspiracy, and the complexities of love in order to save themselves and everyone who matters to them - or die trying.

       The dream is freaking me out for three reasons: 
         1. It was a nightmare.
         2. I haven’t spontaneously dreamt for almost a year.
         3. It’s the night before my final test.
       I’m sitting in the complete blackness of my training room quarters while the unsettling images cycle through my brain. It had come on slowly. Innocently. I was sitting under a tree, looking over a field of tall red poppies. I’ve never seen so many flowers before. As far as the eye could see, it was a densely packed sea of bobbing stalks waving in the warm breeze.
       The bright yellow sun beamed down in a cloudless blue sky. The colors were rich and brilliant, like a summer day. At first, I’d just leaned back against a tree and soaked in the beauty. It was like my earliest days in the dreamworld, before I learned anyone could monitor and influence my dreams. It was refreshing to settle into a real dream again, created solely by my subconscious. As it should be. The only thing I’d forgotten is sometimes my subconscious turns on me.
       A flicker of movement on my periphery caught my eye. A section of poppies rippled as if something was crawling through them. Judging by the width of the section of toppling stalks, probably a fairly large something. The breeze didn’t feel so warm and inviting anymore. A chill replaced it; the crawling thing was heading directly for me. 

Dream Frequency Music Playlist
by J.S. Lomas

I take a long time to put together the perfect writing playlists for each of my books. The full playlist for Dream Frequency is 87 songs so I’ll give you the top 15. (I intended to do 10 but it’s painful to whittle it down!) Each of these songs played on repeat, many, many times while I was writing certain scenes. Some of them sort of feel like theme songs for certain characters. Without giving anything away, #11, Breaking Ties played on repeat while I wrote the cave scene. #4, Get Home, feels like a good theme song for Christine in this book.
