At its core is about finding strength to believe in yourself and standing up for one’s beliefs

CALLIOPE, Australia – “Dawn of the Dreamer” (published by Xlibris AU) hooks readers from the opening chapter as they are carried into a very familiar future where society is controlled by technology – subconsciously.
The debut young adult novel by LJ Higgins is set in 2023 where dreams are no longer created by the mind but controlled by a multimillion dollar corporation using their popular product the ‘Wristcuff’. Wearers are told it will improve one’s life by helping them heal faster, learn more, lose weight and sleep better; but little do they know this device controls their ability to dream, ultimately controlling their minds.
Higgins, 29, who is a stay at home mother of two, has put an imaginative spin on today’s technology driven society where wearable devices are extremely popular.
“Even though the book is set in the future, it is relatable with the settings and technology very similar to how it is today, giving readers a sense that being controlled by technology is quite possible,” said Higgins. “However as much as technology evolves and takes control of our lives; ultimately what makes us human will never change.”
This edgy and gripping book is sure to be snapped up by eager readers when it’s officially released online via Amazon and Barns and Noble on 13 April. Its strong inventive descriptions enable the reader to easy relate to the characters and visualize the settings which are based in towns across central Queensland, Australia. The dominant character Amelia is powerfully independent and the veil of ignorance towards the Wristcuff is lifted when she meets someone who helps her see through the lies and secrets. Higgins hopes to inspire readers to believe in themselves for that’s how dreams are made into reality.
“At its core is about finding strength to believe in yourself and standing up for one’s beliefs,” said Higgins.
“Dawn of the Dreamer” is an empowering and beguiling young adult novel.
