With all the dreams and desires I have in life, through writing I can live all of them. Life is short and you never know when it will end. Through the words I created a world for my love ones to always and forever know where to find me.

In The Dream Architect, what begins as an unforgettable romance turns to heartbreak as young musician Baylor is killed in a car accident. As the shy, romantic Olivia begins her grieving process, Baylor must navigate the dreams and memories of his subconscious in order to reunite with his love. Only a mysterious young man has the key to their reunion. The Dream Architect is a surreal, contemporary romance that follows Baylor and Olivia's journey to unknown realms--and, ultimately, to each other.

24-year-old Brandon Berkel spent five years writing The Dream Architect. During a period of that time he worked at a bakery, where he came up with a lot of ideas for this book. He would spend early mornings inside his head, thinking of the story. When asked why he wrote the book, he responded, "Love, Dreams, and Immortality. With all the dreams and desires I have in life, through writing I can live all of them. Life is short and you never know when it will end. Through the words I created a world for my love ones to always and forever know where to find me." Brandon's girlfriend of four years has inspired the book as well.

The Dream Architect was crowdfunded using GoFundMe, where Brandon raised enough to publish both a hardcover and paperback version of the novel with Mira Digital Publishing. Daniel, Project Manager of GoFundMe, even made a generous donation. His note to Brandon said, "From one writer to another, make your dream come true. Here's to many more dreams after that!" His 94 donors will receive various levels of gifts depending on the amount of their donation, including a "special gift," as well as paperback and hardcover versions of the book.

There will be a book release party on Sunday, June 28th, 2015 from 3pm to close at International Tap House in Chesterfield, MO. The party will be sponsored by New Holland Brewery, Internaional Tap House, and Mira Digital Publishing. Books will be available for purchase and Brandon will be signing them all day. Select draft beers will be $3 all day.

Brandon lived in Columbia, MO for about 5 years but has since moved to St. Louis. He is a people person, playing therapist to the patrons of the bar he manages. He enjoys spending time with his cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Brandon is involved in the community, working with other entrepreneurs and attending local events. This is his first novel, but certainly not his last--he is already working on his second book.
