This week, I welcome back fellow Fantasy Sci-Fi Network author, Cheryllynn Dyess, in order to introduce her new release, A Witch's Dream World. It is the first book of the Chronicles of Elizabeth Fairbairn series released on January 30, 2015 and is already touted as more than just a book about witches.

A Witch's Dream World
Chronicles of Elizabeth Fairbairn (Book 1)
Cheryllynn Dyess



Elizabeth has gone through so much lately with her mother's passing. Now she lives with her aunts and she has begun to have nightmares. Only her nightmares are not nightmares at all, but spirit walks. Elizabeth never knew she belonged to a family of witches that dates back centuries. It is believed that she is the strongest one of all. She never knew her father was alive or that she had a twin brother. Now she must learn about a world she never knew existed. She has to learn to embrace her heritage and figure out how to defeat the Council. They are conspiring to destroy the structure of coexisting in this new society that her ancient people hold dear. Night after night her dreams reveal so much more....but are they only dreams?

What readers are already saying about A Witch's Dream World...

"I thought that I would just be reading another book about Witches. This book totally blew me away."
"You get in a few pages and you don't want to put it down."
 "Loved the twists and turns."

An excerpt to wet your tastebuds...
Raina pats the seat next to her. “Elizabeth join us dear. The council is here to talk to and meet you.”
            “Oh, me? Why me? I am nobody,” I say innocently.
            Trevor eagerly sits forward on his chair.  “Oh dear, we are told you are somebody very important.” Looking around greedily as if taking in the scenery of the room would give him knowledge and power, “Oh yes, very important and strong.”
            I started laughing. I think the stress of the last few weeks has built up and allowed this mental break as everyone turns to me. I straighten up, clear my throat and then shyly respond, “Sir, whatever you have been told is obviously misstated.  Just a few months ago I never knew this world,” I motion to them all, “even existed. My mother and I lived in a humble town house in the city. You know, the city, where all this fantasy is on the big screen and pages only, not in your living room or on the mountain side.” I take a sip of coffee. “As for strong, I am strong.” My aunts glare at me.  I take another sip. “I am strong for what I have managed to live through. The death of the only parent I thought living. The rebirth of the parent I thought dead. The introduction of a brother I never knew existed. Gaining the knowledge of a world I thought to be a lie, some child’s fantasy story. Yet, here I am perfectly stable mentally and planning my collegiate path that will take off in a month. Yes, I am strong.” I finish my cup of coffee and with all four council members staring at me.
            Sylvia starts to chuckle, “You see fellow members I told you that boy lies to us. This is not our prophecy in the flesh. You give Devlon too much credit.” I spit my coffee out with the mention of his name. I can play this game.
            “Devlon?” I sneer. “The young man you sent to meet me at the Starbucks? Arrogant fella. He almost immediately tried to claim I was his mate. As if I am some animal to lay claim to like that!” I say with spite and disgust.
            Hannah leans forward, draws her brows together and tilts her head, “He said what to you?”
            I play the attitude of a teen perfectly. “His mate! Can you believe that? I don’t even know him. Much less the fact we are humans, sort of.  We don’t just claim mates. That. Is. Very. Neanderthal.” I hear Reba chuckling behind me.
            Jeanet, who has been slightly quiet up to this point, clears her throat. Sitting up straight she quickly replies, “Obviously this young man, Devlon, has misled us. Let us go and not take up anymore of this human’s time.” With that, all four rise and move to the door. 
Cheryllynn on fantasy fiction...

"Great fantasy fiction is made when you can feel the story. The timeline, place, and people can all be fiction but you have to feel that the story could be real."
