FOND DU LAC, Wis. – David Michael Williams’ psychological rollercoaster of a book series will reach terminal velocity when "If Dreams Can Die" launches this month.
The 360-page paperback or e-book depicts the final confrontation between a death-defying cult and the CIA-sanctioned dream drifters determined to protect the collective unconscious. "If Dreams Can Die" reveals important information about Annette Young, a mysterious figure from the first two books and the alleged villain of the series.
"Annette has devoted her life as well as her afterlife to reconnecting with her departed family, even if it means destroying the dreamscape," Williams said. "Although she has committed reprehensible crimes for her cause, she still sees herself as a hero."
"If Dreams Can Die" ties together the intertwining storylines of "If Souls Can Sleep" and "If Sin Dwells Deep," both published in 2018.
"Characters who were enemies in the first two novels must join forces to stop Annette," Williams said. "But how do you defeat someone who is already dead?"
As with its predecessors, "If Dreams Can Die" contains elements of several literary genres, including science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and suspense. The Soul Sleep Cycle could also be categorized as dreampunk, a subgenre that raises the question "What is real?"
"I set out to write something I’d never read before, something unique and admittedly experimental," the Wisconsin author said.
Williams’ indie publishing company, One Million Words, will publish "If Dreams Can Die" on May 21. Both the paperback and e-book will be available at Amazon.com.
In addition to The Soul Sleep Cycle, Williams is the author of The Renegade Chronicles, a sword-and-sorcery fantasy trilogy comprised of "Rebels and Fools," "Heroes and Liars," and "Martyrs and Monsters." He is a 1999 graduate of UW-Fond du Lac and a 2001 graduate of UW-Milwaukee, where he studied creative writing. He joined the Allied Authors of Wisconsin, one of the state’s oldest writing collectives, in 2005.
