You made BLOOD SHADOWS an Amazon Best Seller! Thank You

Just wanted to let all my incredible friends and readers know...

BLOOD SHADOWS quickly made its way to three Amazon Best Seller lists following our wonderful release party :-)

It even hit #2 in Kindle Fantasy/Paranormal!


Thanks everyone for such a wonderful weekend and release. I have had so much fun with all of you, and it is both humbling and motivating to watch the series progress. For me, it is a rare and special honor to spend an entire day with my readers; to share our love of Dark Fantasy and the written word together; and to regain a sense of perspective (that through it all -- the good, the bad, and the ugly :-) -- in the end, this crazy world of writing and publishing is still worth it)...

For that, I thank YOU!

And now it's time to get back to work :-)...

For those of you who have asked how to stay connected as the series moves along, there are three things you can do:

1. Consider joining the Blood Curse Series Forum: This group was created for you, to give readers a place to connect, chat, and read together ;-)...

2. Consider sharing your reactions and reviews on; B&N; or another social site. The more people who "chime in," the easier these sites make it for new readers to find the books.

3. Join the Blood Curse Mailing List if you would like to receive future notice of releases. The sign-up box can be found on the contact page of my website (TessaDawn.Com); and it remains the easiest way I have of notifying everyone at once.

Thanks again!
May your days be blessed, and may your dreams become your destiny!
