Author Focus: Tessa Dawn!!!!

So my friend Carrie introduced a new author for me to check out, Tessa Dawn, the author behind The Blood Curse Series!  So now I am focusing on her to spread her books to all of you who love your vampires and PNR!

She has a new book in the series coming out....check it out!

Publication Date:  10/31/13

*Spoiler Alert for those of you who have been reading this series*

Saber Alexiares is no ordinary vampire. He is like a cruel, fire-breathing dragon. Reared 
in the bowels of the colony by Dark Ones, he has no conscience, no compassion, and no saving 
grace. Captured by the enemy, he is sentenced to execution by sunlight only to discover that his 
body will not burn — he isn’t who he thought he was. He was stolen at birth. He was reared by 
the wrong house. And the sunlight isn’t going to kill him because he does have a soul. 
Vanya Demir is the very heart of goodness and light, an ancient female from a magical 
race, the progeny of humans and celestial deities before they were cursed by the Blood. With her 
deep-rooted sense of duty; na├»ve upbringing; and tragic, personal history, she has unknowingly 
packed her heart in ice and dedicated her life to the service of the Vampyr. She is wholly 
unprepared to face a fire-breathing dragon. 

When their paths converge beneath a Serpens Blood Moon, they will each have thirty 
days to reconcile the irreconcilable, to confront the primordial darkness that threatens to destroy 
them both. Can a being lost in darkness for eight-hundred years ever find its way to the light? 
Can a heart that’s been buried for as long as it can remember risk the ultimate in betrayal and 
damnation simply for the hope of BLOOD REDEMPTION?

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.
