Spotlight Post: The Sleepwalker Tonic by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller (Giveaway)

Happy Early Halloween! I’m so excited to share this #NightmaresNovels Goodie Bag Giveaway with you! (Big thanks to Random House Children’s Books for providing the prize!). Before we discuss the giveaway, here’s more info about The Sleepwalker Tonic (Nightmares! book #2) and the authors, Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller!

Sleepwalker Tonic Nightmares! The Sleepwalker Tonic is the sequel to the hilariously scary New York Times bestselling novel Nightmares! by multitalented actor Jason Segel and bestselling author Kirsten Miller. You thought the nightmares were over? You better keep the lights on!

Charlie Laird has a dream life.

1) He has a weirdo stepmom who runs an herbarium.
2) He lives in a purple mansion with a portal to the Netherworld.
3) Since they escaped from the Netherworld, he and his best friends have been sleeping like babies.

But Charlie can’t shake the feeling that something strange is afoot. Charlotte’s herbarium used to be one of the busiest stores in Cypress Creek. Now her loyal following is heading to Orville Falls for their herbal potions.

Weirder, though, Orville Falls is suddenly filled with . . . zombies? At least, they sure look like the walking dead. Rumor has it that no one’s sleeping in Orville Falls. And Charlie knows what that means.

Things are getting freaky again.


Inspiration: Nightmares! was inspired by Segel’s own childhood experience with night terrors. Originally conceived of as a motion picture screenplay, the story has evolved into an entirely engaging novel for middle-grade readers, populated with young characters grappling with relatable struggles and fears alongside uniquely comical yet terrifying villains (brought to life in the captivating black-and-white illustrations by Karl Kwasny). Readers can further delve into the world of Nightmares! with the audiobooks from Listening Library, narrated by Segel himself.

10 thoughts on “Spotlight Post: The Sleepwalker Tonic by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller (Giveaway)

  1. My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn.
    Candy corn has always been my favorite and it always makes me think of Halloween.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I love to take my son trick or treating. One of my favorite stops is a neighbor’s home–she makes homemade donuts! We eat donut holes while there and take home a donut for breakfast the next morning–it usually does not make it til morning!

  3. I have such happy memories of Trick or Treating on chilly Halloween nights: great costumes & decorations, parties with friends & family, “not too scary” monster movie marathons and candy, candy, candy! It’s still one of my favorite holidays :).

  4. I love decorating, baking, and dressing up with my niece and nephew on Halloween. We always enjoy making treats together. It’s my favorite holiday.

  5. I have this weird favorite Halloween movie called “Witches in Stitches”. It is a cartoon that almost nobody has ever seen, but I absolutely love it. I have been watching it every year since I was a little kid. It makes me laugh and feel like I am still a child. :)

  6. I’m doing a series of book reviews for Halloween/October of Bloody, Creepy, or Disturbing Books. So far, I’ve reviewed Blood & Salt, and Dear Geniuses, a biography of famed architect and spiritualist Theodate Pope Riddle. Come check it out!

  7. This is an awesome giveaway! I met Jason last year and he was so nice! But my Halloween candy, well any candy really is twix or snickers. and my tradition is to sit home watch Halloween movies and handing out candy.

  8. My favorite Halloween candy is probably Dum Dum suckers. I’m the weirdo who hates chocolate. ;) Whenever I’d go trick-or-treating and get chocolate, I’d just give it to my family.
