The moon will bleed.
The heart will break.
And the soul will seek the ultimate solace: Blood Vengeance


Ramsey Olaru is a bona fide bad-ass: a lethal vampire, a seasoned warrior, and a ruthless mercenary in the king’s Sentinel Guard. He’s accustomed to taking what he wants, ramrodding his way through obstacles, and silencing anything—or anyone—who gets in his way. So when his Gemini Blood Moon reveals Tiffany Matthews as his long-awaited destiny, he sets out to fulfill the demands of the Curse, claiming her as his own, swiftly and definitively.  

Tiffany Matthews is as independent as she is savvy, and she knows more than she should about the volatile underworld of the Vampyr, the powerful, preternatural beings that dwell in Dark Moon Vale. She has carved out a peaceful, solitary place in a world filled with violence and fear, and she plans to keep it that way. The sassy human has no time for the brutal, unforgiving warrior—or his ominous Blood Moon.

Little do Tiffany and Ramsey know; they are not alone in this game of chance. Deep in the bowels of the Dark Ones’ Colony, an unforeseen evil is stirring: A demon-hearted vampire has finally found a kindred soul, a human female so deliciously evil, she shares his desire to destroy the innocent. 

Before it’s over, the moon will bleed, the heart will break, and the soul will seek the ultimate solace: Blood Vengeance.

About the Author

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her Master’s Degree in Nonprofit Management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and books. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. The Blood Curse Series marks her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her first foray into the Dark Fantasy world of vampire fiction.

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains with her husband, two children, and “one very crazy cat.” She hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” — a German Shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

Author – the Good, Bad and the Ugly…

Today, I write this blog post after taking a while to re-boot.

I feel that I have been to Hell. A deep place in my soul that has me guessing who are my friends and my foes. My writing career has left me a bit worse for wear and hesitant.

Why?

I think the problems revolve around the criminals out there.  Not the criminals that rob banks, murder and generally are no good.  These criminals are faceless and just like you and me, except they don’t mind cyber-stealing.

THE GOOD…

6-1You create a alternate universe in your head.

You write.

You pour your heart out on the computer keyboard.

You stay up late giving up time with your family.

Making sacrifices.

You read, edit and write better drafts.

You pay a lot of money.  Your money you would have used on a vacation or day out with the family.

You pay for the ownership of this creation… like copyrights, LLC, editing, and book covers.

You trust most people and believe that they will do the right thing.

That’s when life was good and you hoped for many good things to come.

THE BAD…

just_say_no_to_ebook_piracyThen you wake up one morning and see that your heart, your hard work, your investment of time and money has been pirated. Even worse, the edition that you had before the edit, is the one that has been pirated.

To put the frosting on the cake, so to speak, those people who took it, review the unedited version.

I have heard stories like this – a very famous Author, wrote a book in the continuation of a series that was very well received even the movie version. However, her unedited version got pirated and she stopped writing the series… She said that the piracy took her heart out of the series.  She said that she will never write another book in the series.

THE UGLY…

pubishingSo, I have been hit many times. This last time, I felt psychologically raped of my ideas and creation.

I am not afraid that my life as a writer is going to be harder. It’s just that I am jaded now.

I don’t trust ANYONE!

I’m asking the universal powers out there… why and how do you cope?

“Lots of love” is my sign-off line – I still wish that for all of you…

WHY?

Because in my soul I believe and trust a higher power… KARMA. 

So, all I have to say is – cyber pirates may try –  but I know that they will NEVER steal my Sunshine!

Lots of love, Emily
