The world is a funny place. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, something happens and you see a whole other side of it. Things that once made sense suddenly are as alien and confusing as another planet. Or you’re looking at things like you’re seeing it from inside someone else’s head. When everything in life turns upside down. It can be hard to hold on.
It helps if you have a person at your side you can count on to remain right side up for you. Someone to lend perspective and remind you that life is worth keeping on. I know for me, it’s always good to reach out and find my husband’s hand there to hold when I feel like crawling under a rock, or one of my kids there to care about when I don’t feel like doing anything at all.
In mine and Sarah Master's newest release, Tools of Change, it is important for my characters to have something to tie them to the earth. When he first started Dreaming, Barry had Tag to keep him grounded, but being the rock is hard, and eventually, Tag had to let him go. They had a hard time finding one another again, but they did. Eventually. Now it’s Jase’s turn to try and make sense of a world overrun by dreams he doesn’t understand, and to do that alone when his lover, Daniel just can’t hack the pressure any longer. As the group of Dreamers fumbles through the ever-changing landscape of their lives, they begin to realize their partners aren’t just a hand to hold, they are the glue. The foundation. Without them, a Dreamer can’t hope to survive the insanity the Dreams engender.
