Friendship and Dead Dreams with Emma Right

I would love for you to make Emma feel welcome today as she visits and highlights the themes on Friendship from her new release Dead Dreams (special launch price for a short time only 99 cents) 
It's a cliff-hanger that will leave you wishing you had book 2 in your hands! 

Also... Emma is part of the John 3:16 group launch this month ... visit HERE for your chance to win a $50 Amazon Voucher. 

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
Jesus said this in John 15:15. I just love the fact that He, the Creator of the universe, calls us a friend, and puts us on the same plane as Himself.

A good friend though, is hard to find, and wise is the person who chooses her friends carefully. That was a part of the theme in my young adult psychological thriller, Dead Dreams, Book 1, —choosing the right friend. But finding a good friend is not as easy as it seems. Hindsight is always 20-20. When a young person is growing up and discovering about the world and establishing herself as her own entity, sometimes even rejecting her parent’s values and beliefs, so many things seem appropriate, exciting and even right.

We've all been there—at least some of us who are over 21—revving to grow up, the world at our feet, the stars reachable. Wonderful, wondrous future. But in wanting to get there, we forget to smell the roses, we trample on thorns and we get sorely poked and pricked, and alas, some of the barbs could be poisonous. Except for the Grace that watches over me, over us, all it might have taken for any of us to have taken that wrong path was that detour, that wrong turn, that grabbing of something that looked too good to pass up on. This, coupled with a strong desire to make it in life, might blind any of us, and we can end up grabbing at the adder's tail.
A true friend can sway a person from the worst decision and a false one can do just the opposite.
That is the story of Dead Dreams; of Brie O'Mara, a good girl; someone who'd never even gotten a traffic ticket, even a Miss Goodie Two-shoes. But, let's face it; we can all be tempted, just a tiny bit. And sometimes that's all it takes to have things spiral out of hand.
Of course, for us who are a little more mature it’s easier to tell deceit from truths, but someone who’s eighteen or younger might have to learn things the hard way. Which is why I constantly pray for my children to make friends who can steer them toward the proper road. And the best person I know who can always be there for them and guide them is Jesus. So I keep pointing them to Him and hope that their mistakes,(for all young people make mistakes in some form or other) won’t cost them too dearly.
I hope readers will enjoy Dead Dreams and take something out from it. I have always enjoyed a good thriller mystery so I wanted to write a young adult book that has a strong message yet is still filled with intrigue, mystery, and suspense. Hence, Dead Dreams. It is a part of a series, and the first book leaves questions that will be answered in book 2.

Book Trailer:   DeadDreams, Book 1

Book Blurb: Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams--of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality. 

Dead Dreams, Book 1, a young contemporary adult psychological thriller and mystery.

Rated PG.

Thank you Emma, so many great points there! We all make mistakes (not only young people), and surrounding ourselves with a couple of good friends can make this time so much easier to get through.
