A TRANSCENDENT Excerpt: “Snooze” by Linda G. Hill

I’m incredibly excited to be included in the new anthology by Transmundane Press. From what I’ve read of the interviews and excerpts so far, TRANSENDENT is going to be an amazing read.

“I’ve never been much of a dreamer.”

No, I can’t say that. I straightened my tie in the mirror. She’ll assume I’m talking about my hopes for the future.

I couldn’t afford to fuck up this date. At most, I was in a position to have the relationship to end all relationships. At the least, I’d save her life. The tricky part would be not coming across as a nutcase. Something I wasn’t totally convinced of myself.

~~* * *~~

“Jacob?” She approached me with an outstretched hand, and I plastered a surprised look onto my face. The dating site I’d so-called found her through was this newfangled deal where the guy’s photo was visible to the lady, but the woman’s face remained a mystery. They meant to ensure true love or some such crap. That I’d actually managed to choose her provided enough proof that she was the…

Precognitive and Recurring Dreams by Linda G. Hill

Check out my guest post on Transmundane Press blog. 😀

Transmundane Press

Don’t you just love those wonderful dreams that make you wish you could go back to sleep and continue? You’ve found the love of your life, or you’re in the best place, having the most fun you’ve ever had. You wake up to the alarm and think, “Noooo. Why now?” So you hit the snooze button and sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll return to where you left off.

Then, there are the ones you’re grateful you woke up from. You don’t want to go back to sleep because sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll return to that terrifying or sad dream state.

These latter are the ones I often dream over and over again. Recurring dreams have been the better part of my reality for most of my life. I spent years fighting nightly within the walls of an elevator that had a mind of its own. The doors would open between…

In our new author series, we’ll be offering a clairvoyant peek behind the veil of who and what makes up TRANSCENDENT. Here’s a glimpse at Linda G. Hill and her story “Snooze.”

ABOUT THE STORY

What inspired your story?

I was inspired by the times, infrequent as they are, that I’ve been woken up by the alarm and returned to my dream after hitting the snooze button.

Did you have to do any research? If so, what kind? What did you learn?

I did absolutely no research for this story. It’s entirely a product of my weird imagination.

Tell be about the setting you chose and how it influences your work.

The story takes place in modern day, in a city much like any other.

What would you like readers to take away from your story?

Pure entertainment. And an intense desire to read more of my work. 😉

Which…

It’s Release Day!

Congratulations, Don, on your new release! Sounds like a great read. 😀

Author Don Massenzio

SAMPLEWell, I’m a bit nervous today. I’m releasing my new book, Extra InningsIt’s my ninth fiction book and tenth book overall.

So, why am I nervous, you might ask?

Well, this book is a major departure from my usual crime/detective drama genre. It has elements of supernatural/paranormal devices and really isn’t at all about crime.

The beta readers were very positive about the story premise and the book overall. I hope that those of you that choose to read it, enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed dreaming it up.

You might be asking: What is it about?

Here is a blurb that sums it up:

Joe McLean hates his life. A lonely, divorced, middle-aged man, stuck in a cramped apartment, the only bright spot in Joe’s life is cheering on his hometown baseball team.

Now, the local stadium, the place of many childhood and adult memories…
