About the Author:
Bill Jones, Jr. was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Tidewater, Virginia. He latched onto photography at age 12 and grew up assuming he would be a professional photographer. By college, his priorities had shifted, and he opted instead for a career in the business world.
An avid reader and lifelong Science Fiction and Fantasy buff, Bill was equally drawn to poetry and began writing and having poems published in small literary journals shortly after college. After taking time off to focus on raising his daughter, Bill resumed writing in 2007, completing a short story that would later become the first two chapters of his Fantasy Adventure series, "The Stream."
Currently, Bill is editing his first Science Fiction adventure, "Hard as Roxx" and publishing a collection of short stories, "The Juice and Other Stories." On those rare days he's not working at his Lockheed Martin day job, or his writing night job, Bill can be found somewhere under a Nikon.
About the Book:
In the exciting sequel to The Stream: Discovery, Charlie Patterson and his best friend, Robin LeBeaux, have spent most of a year using others' dreams as their personal playground. Such is life in The Stream. Now, however, as the dark Lord Siri attempts to gain control of the dream world, Charlie and Robin have decided it is time for an all-out war for control of the Stream. But first, however, they must gather an army from dwellers of the dream world.
In Book 2 of The Stream trilogy, Charlie and his friends return to escort us back to their fantastical world. It’s impossible to not be irresistibly lured in by Bill Jones’ inventive characters and page-turning pace, as skillfully crafted in The Awakening as it was in The Stream: Discovery. Once again, Charlie is the ideal humble hero, each character’s individuality comes through in clever, zany dialogue, and our imaginations are enchanted through clear and vivid scene descriptions. Fans anxiously awaiting this sequel won’t be disappointed.
