Get born, get shorn,
Get fitted for your uniform
Don’t resist, ínsist
Pérsist or get pissed
Get schooled, re-tooled,
Badge in, badge out,
Don’t sleep, not a peep,
Take cold showers
Bill your hours
Get time crunched,
Ready to be sacrificed,
Get costumed, pérfumed,
Faked up, maked-up,
You’re on your way to Paradise!

Kirkus Reviews awarded THE RULES OF DREAMING its “Kirkus Star for Books of Exceptional Merit” and selected the book as one of its “Top 100” Indie Books of 2013.
The Kirkus review called the book “a mind-bending marriage of ambitious literary theory and classic murder mystery…. In this intricately plotted novel, Hartman spins the familiar trappings of gothic mystery together with a fresh postmodern sensibility, producing a story that’s as rich and satisfying as it is difficult to categorize…. As Hartman skillfully blurs the lines between fiction and reality, the book becomes a profound meditation on art, identity and their messy spheres f influence…. An exciting, original take on the literary mystery genre.”
