Musa Blog Hop

Click logo to return to Blog List

I am joining my fellow Musa Authors in a Memorial  Day Weekend Blog Hop. You are invited to explore from site to site and to leave comments or questions. 

We're also all running a contest in celebration. I'll be giving away a copy of my novella to one lucky visitor.

It is an e-book. You can check it out here:
Day Dreamer - Devin Hodgins

It's available from Urania Speculative Fiction for only 99 cents.

Here once again is the companion poem I wrote with the story.

Tomorrow’s Dream

To dream every night of what shall be the next day…

When would you ever wish to fall asleep?
And how would you ever know whether you were awake?

Twilight shines across evening skies      
Even while morning shadows arise        
Memories and expectations turn one into another
Spinning and spiraling and becoming each other

And through each night
To dream of awakening and then of falling asleep
O, the oneiric lucidity
Of every nightmare and daydream

Twilight shines across morning skies
Even while evening shadows horize
Expectations and memories turn into each other
Spiraling and spinning and becoming one another

Lost  in revery
So every night seems
Making each day
A recurring dream.

You don’t know if you’re awake or asleep
You only know you are dreaming

To dream the day away
Awake, Asleep
Every dream, Every day
Every day, Every dream
Feel free to share your thoughts.

If you want to enter for a chance to win a copy of the novella, all you have to do is this: leave a comment--about what you dreamt last night, perhaps, or what Memorial  Day means to you--then sign up to follow my blog, friend me on facebook, and like my author page. Also in your comment, let me know how and in what format you would want your e-book sent to you. One winner shall be chosen from all qualifying entrants and shall be notified on Tuesday.

Be sure to enter on everyone's site--you just might win more than one book. 

I wish everyone a splendid and safe holiday as Memorial Day gives us a chance not only to remember our loved ones but to observe how the past begat the present and where the future lies--an appropriate sentiment, perhaps, for a blog hop.


  1. I love all the memorial posts. Musa peeps rock! Congrats with your book!

  2. Love the poem. I slept like a rock last night. No dreams that I remember. I'm enjoying hopping to the different sites and reflecting on the great service of our troops. Your novella looks great!

    1. Thanks for your comments. Slept like a rock, eh?

  3. Great poem, and the novella sounds awesome too. I uh, did remember some kinda weird dream last night... I remember waking up out of it, thinking I needed to go on some long hike to the middle of nowhere, and there was snow... but I don't remember a dang thing about the dream now!

    1. Dangit, I keep forgetting to add in contact info. Epub format, and my email is: khartigerATgmailDOTcom

    2. Thanks for your kind words. Strange how dreams fade from the waking mind.

  4. Just popping in to support my fellow Musans and of remember the troops.

    Interesting question - Well after spending all day working on an assignment, yep, i continued to dream about it. Annoying really.

    1. Any insights after the annoyance?

  5. I'll tell you a dream I had a few nights ago after my last day of teaching 9th grade English before the summer. I ended with my worst class with a student who felt like it was his goal in life to torture me and his other teachers. Sadly...I woke up the next day realizing I'd had a bad dream about having to teach that class again! Lol! Oh well... Kindle format - email dustycrabtree12@cox.net

    1. Well, summer vacation is here for real now.

  6. I dream every night. Last night I was a red eared slider turtle in a cool pond.
