Looking for Volunteers – A Street Team of Sorts!

Hello Readers!

It’s almost time for the release of my upcoming novel BOOK OF DREAMS! It lands into the world in a short 54 days! OMG!

The issue I have with this? You mean besides the fact that I will be celebrating my birthday on my release day and I will be–GASP–56 years old (I can’t even compute! I don’t know how that age milestone is even possible, owing to the fact that I was voted Most Likely to Not Make It both in elementary school and high school. Kids are cruel merciless bitches)? I will be leaving the continent in exactly 48 days as I set off on another Camino adventure, this time with Michael and his sister!

We’re off on an adventure this September! The Camino Portugues!

Because of a shift in the release date for BOOK OF DREAMS (it was originally set to release in May, 2022), I’ve been faced with a disaster in timing. I will be in Europe on the day my book releases to the world. Yes, I will have connectivity, but I will be walking the Atlantic coast of Portugal at the time and literally anything can happen.

Here’s where I ask the BIG favour!

The Book.

I was hoping to round up a street team of sorts, a group of people willing to make announcements, share details, shout about the book, leading up to and ON the release date!

I would love to have others out there TWEETING, FACEBOOK POSTING, INSTAGRAMMING, BLOGGING, TIKTOKING, and anything else you can think of, as the book releases.

I feel guilty not being here at this crucial time and I’d like to get as much of a buzz going as possible, with your help. Please let me know if you would be interested in doing something. Anything will help. RT, SHARE, etc…it all helps. If you need any info, details from me for website/blog posts…I’d be happy to hook you up.

Send me an email at kevintcraig@hotmail.com

To those willing to help me out, the release date is SEPTEMBER 13th. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Synopsis for BOOK OF DREAMS:

Gaige’s curiosity gets the better of him when he discovers a bookstore on an abandoned street where no bookstore should be.

He steps inside and is immediately enthralled by its antiquarian sights and smells. But one book in particular calls to him. It isn’t long before he gets a bad feeling about it, but it’s already too late. The store’s aged bookseller gives him no alternative: once he touches the book, it’s his—whether he wants it or not. It’s bought and paid for and there are no returns.

The book leads Gaige on a horrific descent into the unknown. As he falls into the depths of its pages, he loses blocks of time, and his friends become trapped inside ancient cellars with seemingly no means of escape. Gaige soon learns that the ancient bookseller is a notorious serial killer from previous century, and fears that he has fallen into a predicament from which he may not escape.

When all seems lost, he finds the one person he can turn to for help—Mael, a sweet teen also trapped inside the book who didn’t fall for the bookseller’s tricks.

Together, they race against time to protect Gaige from joining a long string of boys who vanished without a trace inside the Book of Dreams.
