Overview

Everyone Dreams.

But what would you do if you found out that you were one of the few who creates dreams for the whole world? Would you use your power to harness the light and weave it into beautiful tapestries of magic and wonder, or would you fall prey to the seductive siren song of darkness and nightmares?

For tattoo artist Aura Mayville, this becomes a reality as she is ripped from her life of art and music and thrust into a realm where good and evil struggle for control over the minds and hearts of men.

With a sarcastic sorcerer, a mercenary, and her Spirit Guide as her only companions, Aura must journey through the dream realm to discover both her power and where her heart truly lies. In a place where anything is possible, can she find the strength to hold on to herself, or will she be lost to the shadows forever?

Meet the Author

Starla Huchton released her first novel, The Dreamer's Thread, as a full cast podcast production beginning in August 2009. Her first foray went on to become a double-nominee and finalist for the 2010 Parsec Awards. Since her debut, Starla's voice has appeared in other podcasts including The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, The Drabblecast, and Erotica a la Carte. She is also a voice talent for Darkfire Productions, and narrates several of their projects, including The Emperor's Edge series, This Path We Share, and others. Her writing has appeared in the Erotica a la Carte podcast, a short story for The Gearheart, and an episode of the Tales from the Archives podcast (the companion to Tee Morris and Philippa Balantine's Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series), which garnered her a second finalist badge from the 2012 Parsec Awards, followed by a third finalist badge for The Gearheart: Fires in the Snow in 2013. Her second novel, a Steampunk adventure entitled Master of Myth, was the first place winner in the Fantasy/Science Fiction category of The Sandy Writing Contest held annually by the Crested Butte Writers Conference. The Endure series marks her first foray into Science Fiction and Romance.

After completing her degree in Graphic Arts at Monterey Peninsula College, Starla opened up shop as a freelance graphic designer focusing on creating beautiful book covers for independent authors publishers. She currently lives in Virginia where she trains her three Minions and military husband.

    A fun trip through the dream realm

    I really enjoyed The Dreamer's Thread. It does have a few bumps in the delivery, but overall, it's a fun ride through Aura's dreaming.

    I did question a few of the characters motivations as I was reading, but the cool part is that these are characters that were in Aura's dream, so she was just as likely to influence their actions an motivations as anything.

    And as much fun as the dream land was, the time spent with Aura while she was awake gave you a sense of a lived in world and not something that was just a construct to break into the story.

    I know this reads as a backhanded complement, but having read many first novels, this one misses many of the stumbling blocks that a lot of first-time authors stumble through.
