Book Tour: The Dream Makers by Mikey Brooks

First off, check out this AMAZING book trailer!

 

Now lets take a look at the book.

Book Blurb:


This is the exciting conclusion to The Dream Keeper Chronicles.
When the nightmare king escapes into the world of Awake, it is left to Gladamyr and his teen bonds, Parker and Kaelyn, to stop him. They must return Mares back to Dreams before the barrier between the two worlds crumbles and darkness reigns forever. But to do so, Parker and Kaelyn must heal broken friendships and unite an army of children who are brave enough to conquer their fears.

Speaking of nightmares.... I am a bit of a scaredy-cat when it comes to pretty much all things scary. I've never actually finished the first movie of Jurassic Park! I did get talked into watching I am Legend a few years back, and even thinking about it now is giving me the hee-bee-jeebies. I remember the night after, I walked into the bathroom before bed, the lights were all off except for the glow of the blue night light in the hall. As I walked into the tiny bathroom, I noticed that you could kind of see the moon through the frosted glass of the tiny window over the shower, and as I moved towards loud 

SSSSCCCCKKKKKKRRRRRIIIIIITTTTTTCCCCCCHH  

sounded across that tiny window. Being seven months pregnant, I promptly peed myself and screamed. My husband came in arms swinging, and flipped on the light. This illuminated my wet pajama pants, and the shadow of a branch that needed trimming, because it was now pressed up against the window. 

Now for something a little less humiliating, take a look at who the author selected to play his main characters if Dream Maker was made into a movie.

Main Character Casting:


Gladamyr
Colin O'Donoghue from Once Upon a Time (Hook)

Parker
 A younger version of Logan Lerman would be good. Of course he’d have to have some Latino aspects. Parker is half Latino and half white. (Percy Jackson)

Kaelyn
 A younger version of Elle Fanning (Super 8 and Maleficent)

Fyren 
Benedict Cumberbatch (the voice of Smog)

Mab 
Katie McGrath (Morgana from Merlin)

Liz
Penélope Cruz (Angelica from Pirate of the Caribbean)

Zelda 
I think Amy Adams (Enchanted) could really pull off Zelda

Dr. Gates
 Ryan Gosling might be able to pull him off (The Notebook)

Allyon 

 





















Sean Connery would be perfect. Maybe Ian McKellen.


Which would you pick? I am a HUGE Sean Connery fan, personally. ;)
