BookCover5x8_revisedfinal7_31_2014Have you ever dreamed you were flying?  If so, you probably know how  spectacular it is.  Nick Townsend had these types of dreams regularly and he USED to enjoy them.
 
In late 2012, he’s been suspended from his job as a high school principal. His stress knocks him off the wagon and his alcohol addiction gets the better of him.
He wakes up the next morning remembering that his flying dream took him over the site of an elementary school shooting IN PROGRESS.   When he watches the details of THAT school shooting play out on the news the very next day, he realizes he’s been given special insight.  The next time he drinks, it happens again, and he heads off to Arkansas stop the shooters.  
 
But can a thirty-something, small town NC high school principal stop these tragedies?
 
Should he risk his life when he’s about to marry the sexiest teacher in town who’s also having his baby? 
 
Can he win his battle against tequila?  
 
And what might happen if he drinks again only to wake up to the realization
that HIS school is the next to be attacked?

You’ll see writers talking about how much they value their “early” readers (aka beta readers)  for their feedback on story ideas, pacing, plot points, characterization, etc.   That holds doubly true for me as I struggle to put together a story that  keeps the reader’s attention.   My mother is one of my biggest supporters in all things writing, so she is always willing to read a rough draft and provide comments.
