Guest Post: Dreams
Aspasía S. Bissas

I’ll sometimes include characters’ dreams in my writing, in part because dreams have always been important to me. I’ve always been lucky enough to have vivid, detailed dreams. I also grew up in a family that knew how to interpret them, and taught me, as well. Dreaming your teeth are loose foretells illness. Dreaming that a dead family member gives you a gift is a blessing (but beware if they ask you to give them something).

Occasionally I’ll even have a prophetic dream. My favourite happened when I was twelve. The night after moving in to our new house, I dreamed that our tortoiseshell cat Toby (who we naively didn’t realize was pregnant) had a single male orange tabby kitten. In the dream I named him Rusty. When I woke up the next morning my mom told me my cat had given birth overnight. I didn’t believe her at first but it turned out that Toby had indeed had a kitten: a single male orange tabby kitten. Of course I named him Rusty. (By the way, we also had Toby spayed after that, which we really should have done as soon as she was old enough.)

Blood Magic
by Aspasia S. Bissas

Myth and magic collide in this story about choices, transformation, and retribution.

On the run from both vampires and hunters, Mara and Lee are forced to
confront the bleak reality of their future together. But an
unexpected turn of events offers Mara the chance to shift things in
her favor--at a cost. Will she walk away or will she embrace the magic?

Blood Magic is a standalone short story that takes place within the novel
Love Lies Bleeding by Aspasía S. Bissas. You don't need to read Love
Lies Bleeding to enjoy Blood Magic (but it doesn't hurt).

Aspasia wrote her first short story at the age of six and illustrated it with
a pink highlighter. She no longer does illustrations but she's been
writing stories ever since. She lives in Toronto with her partner in
crime, three cats, a plethora of plants, and a Disney movie's worth
of wildlife in the yard. Her dark fantasy novel Love Lies Bleeding is
now available in paperback and on Kindle. She is currently working on
the next book.
