THE WALKING DEAD Author Pens Indie Book LUCID
Permuted Press, the premier U.S. horror, zombie, and science fiction publisher, unleashes the gripping independent book LUCID, created by Jay Bonansinga, New York Times bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: DESCENT. LUCID is a mind-bending, contemporary supernatural thriller for Young Adults available today in print and ebook formats.
What is LUCID?
Lori Blaine is not your average 17-year-old high school student. Cool and iconoclastic in her dreadlocks and natty thrift shop garb with an IQ that’s off the charts, she is the ersatz leader of a pack of Goth kids who circle around her in the halls of Valesburg Central like a school of pilot fish. Lori speaks softly, but when she does speak, people tend to listen.
But Lori Blaine has one problem: The door.
Lori’s dreams are haunted by this strange, recurring symbol. The door is always there on the periphery…beckoning her, daring her to see what’s waiting on the other side. Finally, at the urging of an overzealous school psychologist, Lori Blaine decides to face her fears. And that’s when the trouble starts. The next night she goes through the door in her dreams…and immediately plunges into a shattered glass world in which nothing is at is seems and evil lurks around every corner.
But when Lori fights back, all hell breaks loose.
LUCID appeals to both teens and adults alike, and is available for $15.99 in print and $7.99 in ebook format. The print version will be available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Digital versions will be available on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo and GooglePlay.
