I had a crazy dream one night.

Congratulations to "Bn100", the winner in Destiny's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

Hello, and thank you to Just Romantic Suspense for allowing me this opportunity to do a guest blog! Against the Game started with a dream. Way back in high school (no need to say how way back), I had a crazy dream one night. It felt like something straight out of an   action/adventure/science fiction kind of movie. I was running through a large maze of dirt tunnels from something that was probably going to eat me. My husband makes me watch entirely too many horror movies! Well, I can’t say I immediately woke up with the idea for this book that particular morning. But I had that same dream over and over again. More details came to light. It turned into a story all on its own. That idea turned into Against the Game. I’m so happy it is finally written after all these years!

Against the Game

Eric Teague is moments away from making history. Thanks to him, the world of gaming is about to experience technology like it has never seen before. When his new establishment, Against the Game, opens, playing video games will be a thing of the past.

At Against the Game, players experience the game as if it is real in a virtual reality. There is no TV, no console with wires and controllers. The game feels absolutely real. Kids get so much more than puppeteering cartoonish characters through a game of basketball. No matter the person’s health or physical ability, they will be the characters in a world without limits and they will experience what it is really like to compete as a pro ball player.

During test trials, kids called Against the Game “amazing,” “fantastic,” and “miraculous.” One kid declared it was the best experience of his life. Indeed, everyone knew it was going to be something big enough to alter the whole gaming industry. For Eric, it meant a long awaited dream come true.

But, all too soon, reality breaks into Eric’s moment when something goes terribly wrong. He and his best friend Lacey get trapped in the virtual reality of the supercomputer behind his establishment. It is definitely no longer just a game. The danger is real. The consequences are real. And, Eric and Lacey’s fight for survival is more than real.

To live, they must win, and to win, they must overcome the biggest challenge of all: to trust and to love.

  1. can't remember

    1. It's tough to remember. I forget so many of my dreams, too. :)

  2. I have very vivid, very weird dreams almost every night. Never scary though. I can recall them perfectly when I wake up, but they soon go from my mind after that.


    1. Never scary? You must go to sleep with peace of mind every night. Thanks for commenting, Mary! :)
