My First Novel - The Hambledown Dream has been published.

2 posts in this topic

I am pleased to announce here that this past week, my first novel - The Hambledown Dream - was released globally through iReadiWrite Publishing of Vancouver, Canada.

The following is taken from the official press release in support of my novel;

ireadiwrite Publishing is extremely pleased to present the premiere novel by break out author Dean Mayes. This Pediatric Intensive Care Nurse has long held the dream to be a published author and after years of blogging and several attempts at producing that one great novel, Dean has delivered a lyrical and deeply moving fable about two young men - one whose spirit is determined to live on beyond his untimely death and the other who is lost and deeply troubled but who finds the means to lift himself from his destructive existence. Together, they become the chance for one another's salvation.

Australian Denny Banister had it all – a successful career, a passion for the guitar and a deep love for Sonya - his soul mate whom he wishes to marry. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer and he is destined to die.

Andy DeVries has nothing. He stands on a precipice, living life on a razor's edge, dealing in drugs and moving through a dangerous underworld of criminals and con artists. He is alienated from his father and he stands to lose the only thing that matters to him - a place at a prestigious Conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago. For Andy has a love of the guitar as fierce as Denny's once was.

Having been snatched from a near fatal overdose Andy is suddenly plagued by dreams of another life - a life he has never known but one that is as familiar to him as if it were his own. He dreams of a love he has never experienced yet he knows this love intuitively and deeply.

Having been given a chance at redemption Andy begins to change. Something has been awakened in him - a spirit of a once proud man. As Sonya grieves for her lost love Andy begins a quest to find her - knowing her only by the dreams of a place called Hambledown...and the memories of a stranger.

With a street date of January 20, 2010 - the novel is now available through the iReadiWrite Store as well as it's partner stores including Smash Words, Omnilit and Amazon's Kindle Store. All signs point to a bestseller for this small digital press and this first time author. As the novel rolls out, great reviews and sales are expected.

The Hambledown Dream can be purchased directly from the publisher at http://www.ireadiwrite.com or from most major and independent ebook stores.
