Introducing the Glimmerings series.

(Ah, yes, I'm telling them. Be patient.)

All day long, I drift off into their world, seeing them going about their business, laughing, loving, mourning. At night, they visit me in my dreams, whispering secrets to my ear as sole confidant. They fear my anger, comfort me when I'm alone, reach out ethereal hands to brush away my tears.

And when all is said and done, I know quite well that not only would they not live without me, they would have never existed as a figment of anyone else's reality. Only I can give them the life they deserve, only I can spill their words and actions across a printed page to share.

It's a burden, and a gift. They are my mind children, a part of me in a peculiar way, and yet individuals fragmenting away to seed themselves in other minds.

Please buy and read the books. Help me give them a life beyond my puny imagination. Lift them up and hold their hands, passing their security on to others you know.

(There, there, I told them. Are you happy now? OK. Yes, yes, I will write you alive again tonight, while the fire flickers and the wind moans. We'll share some tea or coffee, maybe a cup of rich, dark cocoa. Whatever your imaginary hearts desire.)  

Thank you.
