Kerry Schafer's BETWEEN Dream Tour: DAY 4

Over five days, five different sites will post an image that shows a bit more of the cover each day until it’s revealed in its entirety Friday, September 21st on Kerry’s also running a tour sweepstakes this week giving away two (2) $25 Visa gift cards and a query critique from Knight Agency president Deidre Knight!

Vivian's life is finally on track. She has a job she loves as an ER doctor and has just met - literally - the man of her dreams. But when her eccentric grandfather is murdered and designates her as his next of kin, she discovers that she is the last of a race of beings known as dreamshifters. It is her task to guard the doorways between waking and dreaming, which have already begun to unravel, spilling dangerous creatures from dream into the waking world. When she sets out to close the open doors and protect her town and the people she loves, Vivian confronts dragons, intrigue, and the dark secrets of her own family history. In the end she comes face to face with a sorceress seeking eternal life and ultimate power. Vivian must find a way to stop her, or reality will be forever altered.

The theme for Day Four of the BETWEEN Dream Tour is penguins. Vivian was given a penguin pendant by her grandfather to wear around her neck as protection. Dream imagery wisdom say that seeing a penguin in your dream shows that your problems might not be as serious as you think. Have any of your dreams ever given you some relief about a situation you thought was bigger than it actually was?

Pre-order BETWEEEN at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-a-Million, or IndieBound. You never know what dreams may come…


  1. Send some penguins my way. I need dreams that do that. Mine are much more likely to show the deeper reality of what's going on in my life, and as such, are more serious.

    Then again, perhaps I just need to think of penguins as I'm falling asleep...

  2. I used to have baby penguins in my dreams all the time. Little fuzzy gray ones!

  3. Jennifer - interestingly enough, penguins are actually viewed as a sort of dream guide totem because of their ability to move in and out of one realm into another (earth, water) so easily.

    Carrie - really? The babies are SO adorable. I'm jealous now. I've never actually dreamed of a penguin, baby or other. But then - that's what writing is for. : )

    1. I really did, for years as a child. With no explanation whatsoever. They'd just show up in normal dreams. Weirdest darned thing.

  4. After hearing what people think it means, I WISH I dreamed of penguins!

    I've definitely had dreams that made me feel better about situations and problems though. Sometimes a positive dream can really help in times of stress.

    And I LOVE Kerry's cover reveal - I can't wait to see the final image tomorrow. So exciting!

  5. I had one dream which began as a nightmare, and then became a dream of freedom. I think I was in a plane and it was going to crash. I was terrified. And then - I was just flung free into space, and nothing mattered. I knew everything and everybody would be okay without me, and I was just - totally free and unencumbered. I still hold onto that feeling sometimes when I'm scared.
