“I, Chuang Chou, dreamed I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, for all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware I was Chou. Soon I awakened, and there I was, myself again. Now I do not know whether I was a man dreaming I was a butterfly—or whether I am a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” Zhuangzi
Zhuangzi’s famous quote serves as the epigraph to my Amazon bestselling paranormal novel, SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, the epic metaphysical tale of one extraordinary boy’s awakening to the reality-altering quality of his dreams.
“SNOOZE is a captivating coming-of-age tale about a gifted boy traveling to a fantastical realm to save his father … Thanks to author Sol Luckman’s writing ability, SNOOZE can be enjoyed by readers of all ages, despite being aimed at young adults. Right off the bat, the writing is engaging and captures the attention.”
Readers’ Favorite was even more effusive:
“Luckman’s dazzling abilities as a novelist abound with lyrical prose … Although [SNOOZE] chronicles a boys transition into manhood, I would not consider it young adult. The provocative subject matter of science and spirituality is very mature … If you enjoy colorful characters, a fast-paced plot and stories that tug at your heart, this novel in eighty-four chapters is anything but a yawn.”
For starters, check out this wide-ranging interview on SNOOZE with author and astrologer Laura Walker (THE BLACK MOON: GUIDE TO HEALING OUR SHADOW SIDE), who likened the novel to a new CELESTINE PROPHECY.
More recently, I joined Lance White, author of TALES OF A ZANY MYSTIC, for a Fireside Chat about SNOOZE on BBS Radio.
Lance and I covered a lot of ground in less than an hour, placing special emphasis on the manner in which SNOOZE touches on a plethora of conspiracy theories (many of which are proving true even as a I write for those willing to … awaken).
Lance summarized our chat this way:
Sol Luckman shared the story about how his latest book, SNOOZE: A STORY OF AWAKENING, came about. It’s a moving story, and the book is a multi-dimensional, many-faceted gem of a read. From mysteries to metaphysics, entering the dream world, Bigfoot, high magic and daring feats of courage, this book has it all … This is a delightful show, which opens up the person behind the writing, and I must admit he’s a very likeable fellow! I highly recommend [SNOOZE] for all ages. It’s an exciting journey within. Don’t miss it!
Listen to this jam-packed show here.
And as always, sweet dreams!
