Life in Death by Harlow Drake - Guest Post & Kindle Fire Giveaway

Life in Death 
by Harlow Drake

When a girl that social worker Kari Marchant places in foster care is brutally murdered, she’s compelled to learn why. Her quest for the truth pits her against friends and coworkers. As Kari works to solve the horrific plot, more people die. She’s been targeted for death and she doesn’t even know it. How far should she go to learn the truth—even if it threatens her life?

When homicide detective Rance Nicolet meets Kari, his attraction to her is powerful—and the feeling is mutual. But things between them go terribly wrong when Kari’s old lover is found murdered with a letter from her in his pocket. The evidence against Kari is damning. Rance’s personal and professional lives collide. Does he blindly believe the woman he’s falling in love with or follow the evidence no matter where it leads?

Do you have recurring dreams?  If so, what are they about?  Do you think these dreams have any significance in your waking life? (From the author's perspective)
Guest Post by Harlow Drake 

Yes, over the years, I’ve been plagued by the same two dreams:

In Dream 1, I’m at a dinner party with friends when my teeth start to fall out. No one notices at first as I nonchalantly hide my discarded teeth in my napkin. Then my teeth start falling out in rapid succession making clinking noises as they hit my dinner plate. Everyone notices and someone screams. I wake up.

In Dream 2, I’m in high school rummaging through my locker when I notice everyone pointing and laughing at me. I look down and realize I’m as naked as a jaybird and am mortified. I run down the hall covering my naughty parts as best I can. I wake up.

I consulted some dream interpretation websites and found that both of these dreams are common.

Dream 1 is about my anxieties surrounding getting older and feelings of unattractiveness.

Dream 2 is about me hiding something and fear that someone will find out what it is.

Dreams help us better understand ourselves. If I dream my teeth are falling out, I know it’s because I’m grappling with getting older and not feeling as attractive as I was when I was younger. If I dream I’m naked, I know it’s because I’m feeling vulnerable and exposed in some way. These are things I have to deal with in my waking life so as not to have these feelings manifest themselves in dreams.

Elias Canetti said, “All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams.”

I believe that.
