I See A Story in Everything Guest Blog and Giveaway with Jacqueline Paige

I am constantly being asked where I get ideas from. My usual answer is ‘it just comes to me’, what I don’t say is I see a story in everything in my small space in the real world.

If I wrote down all of my thoughts and ideas I’d have enough plots to write ten books a year for the next fifty years. Take today for example, that ghost was up to no good again at work. At least I joke with my staff and tell them there is a ghost in our café that only comes out when it’s bored. The dispenser machine randomly went off when the nearest person to it was ten feet away. The ghost was well fed, not that I think they eat the items that disappear, they just like to mess with us and take things – like the four half bagels that didn’t come out the other end of the toaster.

We even took the guard off and looked inside, they were gone. With just today’s ‘fun’ I could come up with an entire novel about the resident ghost that lives at a busy café and eatery. Hmm, might have to write that one down!

Maybe the imagination everyone has when they’re a child didn’t mature on me and vanish with all the responsibilities and expectations that happen when a person grows up – maybe it’s my muse that is the other half of my split personality or maybe I’m really a physic that can see all of these events and people that a normal person can’t … I don’t know the reason why I can find a story in everything, but I’m really glad I can!

Do you have something that came from real life that would make a great story? With a few ‘extra flares added?

Tell me about yours.

IN OUR DREAM

She’s a small town cop. He’s an inmate undercover. They meet in a dream.

Blurb

Jennah Best left the adrenaline packed life of being a cop on the edge for a more peaceful place. She escaped a marriage that almost destroyed her and now lives her life working for a small police station in the town of Ridge. At her age, she’s accepted that it’s too late and too much work to start all over again, until she meets a man in a dream...

While young, Dominic Palmer has always proven he can get the job done. Or at least, that was the case before he accepted a job and agreed to go undercover as an inmate. When months go by and there’s no word from his outside contact he wonders if he’s been left on the inside for good. He’s fighting to stay alive and keep his sanity, but finds himself completely distracted by a mysterious woman he met in a dream...

FROM A DREAM

She wakes up in a dark hole, alone. He’ll stop at nothing to find her.


Blurb:

Jennah has found happiness. She wasn’t looking for it but isn’t about to give it up now that she has it. Everything she craved for years was now right in front of her--a man that makes her feel cherished, a peaceful life, and a job she enjoys. It all changes when she wakes up in a dark hole, alone, unarmed and unable to connect with the one man she’s grown to need.

Dominic realizes he is one of those men that wants the whole package of marriage and a family, and he’s found the woman to have that with. He’s going stir crazy having to stay hidden until the leader of a criminal organization is caught, but he’s more than willing to stay right here with her.

All of his plans evaporate when a vindictive criminal takes her from him as a hostage. He won’t rest until she’s in his arms again.

AFTER THE DREAM

Brody believes he’s a normal man. Tess has felt like a freak most of her life- except when she’s around one man.

Blurb AFTER THE DREAM

Feeling less then worthy as a normal man surrounded by a team with special skills, Brody has to wonder why he’s a part of it. If it weren’t for one team mate being there, he’d transfer back to normalcy.

Tess has always felt like a freak, even surrounded by others that are different she still feels like an outsider. Only one of her team mates make her feel like an everyday person.

BEHIND THE MASK

A TOP PICK at NIGHT OWL REVIEWS

Her world is calm and predictable until one night, one costume party and one sexy masked man happen.

Blurb for Behind the Mask

In a fit of temper, Gracelyn’s only sister curses her so she’s forgotten the moment anyone turns away from her. Only one thing, at an exact moment, can break the curse. After years of failed attempts, she is forced to accept living her life completely alone. Her world becomes calm and predictable —until one Halloween night … one costume party … and one masquerading man change everything.

THIS RING

From a curse four decades old comes love and trust.

BLURB for This Ring:

Devastated Emma flees to a cabin on an isolated lake to attempt putting her life back together. How she’s going to accomplish this she has no idea— the only thing she knows is she can’t go back and will never be able to trust again.

Bryce spent forty years trying to figure out how he ended up in the strange situation of not being alive or visible—it’s when he stops trying to find the answer he discovers the reason. Feeling that deep in your soul connection with another was what he was lacking all along. Now if he can convince the woman he feels it for, he may have a chance at living once more.

A couple of years ago I read a book about a couple who met in a dream. I have been thinking about how cool that is and I was wondering if there were any other books like it out there. Thanks for the giveaway!

Good post! For me, I get tons of story ideas from my dreams. I've trained myself to wake up at the point the dream begins to fade so I can record it all in my dream journal. Then I'll go pass out again and reread the rambles when I'm conscious again to see if anything I recorded can be salvaged for a future story.


Smiles!
