How to Talk about Sea Monsters

senseabKeir alerted me to an item from yesterday’s New York Times, “How to Discuss ‘Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters’.”  Among the questions proposed in the discussion guide for the latest Jane Austen/horror mash-up:

Have you ever been attacked by giant lobsters, either literally of figuratively?

 What would be worse: being eaten by a shark or consumed by the acidic stomach juice of a sand-shambling man-o’-war?

For those of you who are waiting in breathless anticipation for Sea Monsters to be released on September 15,  here’ s the book trailer.

  1. On August 20, 2009, my new fantasy novel, Gateway to DreamWorld was released.

    Synopsis: On their way home from baseball tryouts, Brad Colby and his two sons are involved in a terrible car accident that leaves six-year-old Pete in a coma. When Pete awakens, the family is crushed to learn that he is paralyzed.

    Meanwhile, Pete’s eight-year-old brother, Jason, has been having powerful dreams that lead him to a mysterious realm known as DreamWorld. Jason discovers that all of his desires can come true in DreamWorld, but the time is fast approaching when he will have to choose between his two worlds.

    And when more devastating news strikes at the heart of the Colby family, Jason and Pete set out on a desperate attempt to find the Gateway to DreamWorld and save their family. With time running out on their dangerous path, will Jason and Pete’s fear of the Unknown keep them from reaching the paradise of their dreams?
