Running from Secrets by Stephanie Void

Bethany has never felt as alone as she feels in Linwood—until she dreams up Chime, a woman on the run because of a magic crime she didn’t commit. The dreams get more and more urgent, so Bethany tries to banish them by writing them down, only to discover she’s stumbled into the role of unwitting controller of Chime’s world.

Chime is real here, and so is the possessed queen, minion army, mysterious professor, Vault Five, wind chimes with a secret code, child’s rhyme that can kill, the naked painting, and other things Chime’s story leads her to.

She has to fix the story without erasing Chime and her world, because if she erases Chime, she will die as well.

Praise for Running from Secrets:

One of those books you can't put down. Bethany's character was true to life. And my biggest complaint about the novel is that it is all too short, I wanted to read more! There were a few pieces of the puzzle that could have been explained more. -- LightofEaerendil at Amazon

In Stephanie Void's novel "Running From Secrets" Bethany (the heroine) takes the world of journaling to a whole new level. Not only does she WRITE the story of her dreams, but after just a few pages, she finds herself LIVING it. I think fantasy lovers will appreciate this one, for the rest of you it might be a hit or miss. (aka it reads mostly fantasy with only appearances of reality to break for Bethany's story structuring.) -- KindleObsessed at Amazon

I loved the idea of an author falling into her world, and especially a world filled with magic & mystery. I absolutely LOVED the idea of Vault 5 (I don't want to spoil it, so read it for yourself!) and I found the Queen's character extremely interesting. Even though she didn't get much time in the story, she was actually a really deep character. -- Maria Elizabeth Perez at Amazon
