Thanks! It's one of Scott Carpenter's. Oleander House came from a dream I had one night, and Scott totally nailed the look of the house in my dream.

That is talent! Neat...about getting your story line from your dream.

Is that how you get your stories?

Surprisingly few come from dreams, actually. I tend to get story ideas from weird random things. For instance, Easy (http://www.allyblue.com/Easy.html) was born when I saw this insanely hot guy driving a flatbed truck out of the local railroad yard. I started wondering who he was, and what kind of person he was, and whether he wore boxers or briefs (or went commando), and Easy grew from that. The Collector 4: Eight Arms to Hold You (http://www.allyblue.com/EightArmsToHoldYou.html) came from a bumper sticker I saw once on a car. It was very strange: a plain white bumper sticker, with this stylized blue-gray octopus with white eyes on it, and itty-bity tiny lettering underneath, too small to read. I could NOT get that image out of my head, and it morphed into a hero who shape-shifts into an octopus.

That's the kind of thing that gives me ideas. Told you it was weird :ph34r:

Okay, I guess it's been out awhile. LOL. But I ordered a copy. I guess better late than never. I saw this on Amazon and the write-up caught my eye. It's going to take a couple of weeks for it to arrive though.
