Multi-platinum-selling artist TOM DELONGE and New York Times best-selling author SUZANNE YOUNG have joined forces for this fall’s most compelling read: Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares (Simon & Schuster), the first of a planned trilogy of Poet Anderson adventures from the duo. Set for an October 6th release, the novel explores an unknown world where dreams meet reality and the chasm between the two sometimes disappears.
Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares tells the story of two recently orphaned teen brothers on a journey to a new life. The elder brother, Alan, is heading to a job at the Hotel Eden in Seattle, where their parents worked before they were killed in a horrific plane crash, and younger brother Jonas, the misfit of the two, returns to the “normalcy” of high school. But normal is nowhere in sight as unseen forces wreck their lives in every possible way. Tragedy leaves Alan in a coma and young Jonas left to fight for both of their lives against enemies from a dark nightworld.
Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares is available for excerpts and authors DeLonge and Young and available for interviews.
