Lots of updates, Travelers & Dreamers!

Book trailer for REM World: Lucid

So, plenty has happened since I last updated this page eons ago.

  1. I now identify as genderfluid.
  2. I’ve signed an agreement with Castle Carrington Publishing.
  3. I’m opening a bookstore!

So, genderfluid. Pretty self-explanatory. Any pronouns. Moving on!

REM World: Lucid will be re-released under the Castle Carrington Publishing print soon-ish and I’m currently working on the sequel (INSOMNIA). I’m absolutely blown over that everyone who has read LUCID has enjoyed it. I’ve only had a few lukewarm responses and absolutely zero “Wtf is this shit?!” reviews. I’m astounded, honestly, and so grateful to everyone who’s read and reviewed. Even if the review wasn’t “blind-me” glowing, I promise you I enjoyed every word you left for my work!

Castle Carrington Publishing is an amazing outfit ran by the most incredible woman (Margot Wilson). I’m so excited to be working with her and seeing what the two of us can do together to further the REM World trilogy’s journey into more hands.

Next, I’m also opening a bookstore (CHAPTERS & PAGES BOOK NOOK). I initially wanted the grand opening to be on April 1st, but I spread myself a bit too thin. The grand opening will now be on May 6th at 203 Broadway, Suite A, Jackson, OH 45640. This bookstore will be more than a place to purchase books. This will be a place for writers to gather, in person, and participate in Writing Sprints and Writer’s Retreats. I am so looking forward to hosting these events in person with writers, as I have done in Twitter spaces for a full year.

I will eventually be re-opening Sprints and Retreats on Twitter again, so feel free to follow me at @By_LREvans to see when I open one of these spaces.

Thirty-one, funeral director, London.

That’s pretty much all Julian Desmond remembers from his waking life.

He wakes in a dimension that can only be accessed via dreams (REM World). A rock monster tells him dreams are real and they can kill him.

The Resistance promises to protect him, but when he receives his Gift of premonition, he learns it’s at a price.

Laughing Man seems clueless, harmless, even doltish. But he’s evidently destined to join forces with an immortal tyrant.

Julian chooses to save his life.

He intends to use him as leverage, but as the nights wear on and he grows more powerful, will he come to regret it?


⫷ A harrowing journey of self-destruction, addiction, grief, trauma, and healing. ⫸

Jodi Jensen Review
From the first moment to the last, L.R. will keep you on the edge of your seat. And in the midst of trying to choose sides in an ongoing conflict between those who seek to free REM World’s inhabitants, and those who would enslave them, the characters face some brutal real-life issues. L.R. doesn’t shy away from showing the reader the effects of trauma. This aspect of the story added a layer of depth not often seen in this genre and developed Julian’s character in a way that felt raw and honest. Even the way the character copes with his traumas is true to life, which is refreshing in a fantasy setting such as this one.
