THE SWEET DREAMS KIT, A FUN GIVEAWAY

by Mary Kennedy                     
                                                     
 
I'm sure you all remember that we're offering a "Sweet Dreams" giveaway here on the Cozy Chicks during the month of August.  I'm celebrating the Sept 2 release of Nightmares Can Be Murder, the first of my Dream Club Mysteries. The launch of a new series is always something to celebrate!
                                                      
 
As you can see from the cover, the room is all set for the arrival of the Dream Club members. (they meet once a week in Savannah to share their dreams, eat some delicious pastries and solve a murder or two!) I'd like to join a club like that, wouldn't you?
 
See the cat in the bottom right of the cover? He's playing with a Navajo dreamcatcher. The dreamcatcher will trap the "bad" dreams and only let the "sweet" dreams through.
 
Naturally, I want all your dreams to be wonderful ones, so I'm offering a Sweet Dreams kit every week for the next 4 weeks. It contains a Navajo dreamcatcher.                                 
 
A Kindle version of "A Psychologist's Guide to Dreams" (a fun little e-booklet I wrote. All proceeds go to the Wayne County Human Society in Lyons, New York.)
                                                          
 
     Some tea and cookies.                                                     
.                      
                                                         
 
AND...a signed copy of NIGHTMARES CAN BE MURDER. (not an ARC, the real thing!) Everything you need for a good night's sleep!
 
   If you would like to enter the giveaway, please send an e-mail to cozychicks@gmail.com and put DREAMS in the subject line. Be sure to include your name and e-mail address. This will enter you not only in the drawing but you will be included on the mailing list for future Cozy Chicks news and giveaways. We will choose one winner every week.

Good luck, everyone, and sweet dreams!
 
Mary Kennedy

What a nice posting and the offer to one lucky person is great. I have a book about how to decipher dreams and it is a bit scary when you try to do that. :) Some dreams I WANT to remember but many not so much. Looking forward to your next book for sure.
Sincerely,
Cynthia

I love the concept of this new series Mary! Looking forward to reading it. I've had two different dreams that have occurred frequently since I was a child (I'm 66 now). The dreams have not differed in context at all in all of these years. I wonder how common that is? Sandy in So. Cali sxygrndma48(at)yahoo(dot)com

mary kennedy said...

thank you so much, keepmelaffin! I wish we had a Dream Club nearby, I would join one! It's very interesting that your dreams have remained quite similar over the years. I'll e-mail you later today. In the meantime, be sure to shoot a quick e mail to cozychicks@gmail.com, with DREAMS in the subject line, so you can be entered in the contest and signed up for the mailing list. thank you so much!

mary kennedy said...

Hi ceblain, thank you so much for the kind words. Dream analysis is a lot of fun, of course there are many different interpretations, but it's fun to take a shot at it. And sometimes a friend or family member will come up with a completely different interpretation. It's a fun hobby!

Robyn K said...

This book sounds wonderful! Thank you for this opportunity! I sent my email :) Have a great weekend! :)

DogsMom said...

I just sent an email with my name and email address. Good luck everyone!! :)

NoraA said...

I'm looking forward to reading your new book, and I can definitely use a dream catcher. I only remember bits and pieces of my dreams and they are really strange. LOL

Off to post the magic e-mail.

Nancy said...

I read A Psychologist's Guide to Dreams yesterday and now am looking forward to the first book in the Dreamcatchers series!

Allison said...

Just sent email. I've asked my library to order your book. Hopefully, I'll be first on the list. Also, I'm not nitpicking, but I had to laugh that all proceeds go to the Wayne County "Human" Society. 'Bout time we humans got something instead of all those silly animals! (wink) I don't usually remember my dreams, but when I do they really stick with me for a couple of days. I'm really looking forward to reading this series. Thanks for the contest.

Marcy x said...

sometimes i have what i call Epic dreams, would love to see what that dream interpretation will say about them. sweet giveaway love the tea and cookies.

I like reading everyone's input. Dreams are rather exciting. Although I don't remember many, I do have several. Here are three. In the first dream, there are many of the theme where I dream that my mom is alive (she passed 8 years ago - which I have not really ever cried over, although we were exceptionally close) and I believe I am awake. Then, I realize that my dream can't be right because my mom is no longer alive and I tell her, "No, this is no right, you aren't alive," and she fades away...but I call to her to stop, stop disappearing and come back. But it is too late and she never returns. Another dream, #2, has me unable to wake. I'm deep in slumber and want to wake up and I am yelling to someone to wake me, but no one can hear me. This second dream is horrible. A third dream has me flying. People can see me fly. I fly and land on walls and roof tops. As I fly I often go to people and warn them of things to do or tell them their futures.

Many thanks for this opportunity. Cozy mysteries are one of my favorites. I've taken a class on making Dream Catchers and loved every minute.

Michstjame said...

What a terrific premise for a cozy series. I am very much looking forward to it!
