SIGN UP for the Blood Curse Series STREET TEAM between May 15th & May 30th! :-)

Hey Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by to learn more about the BCS Street Team! :-)

To jump right in, the BCS Street Team is a hard working group of die-hard fans & friends. We have fun all year round, but come release time, we hit the pavement pretty hard. For that reason, I would ask all potential members to read the info below and see if the team is a good fit (heck, see if you even agree with how we do things ;-)) before signing up. Thanks!

And as always, thank you for being a reader! Your continued support means the world to me!


      1.  You have read all the Blood Curse Series books, and you are PASSIONATE about the series: Dark Fantasy is definitely your thing, and the Silivasis are definitely your men…er, uh…vampires. :-) 
2.      You are willing to go online and travel from one blog-site, newsfeed, or book club to another in order to post comments, answer questions, and generally MAKE SOME SERIOUS NOISE about Dark Moon Vale & the books. :-)

3.      You are available on RELEASE DAY (JUNE 12, 2014) in order to respond to requests, comment on blogs, post pictures and other promo, and generally “run around like a chicken with your head cut off.” :-) (This includes activities the week prior and following). 
4.      Even if it’s short and sweet, you are willing to read the newest release and post an honest review of Blood Father on; Barnes&; and possibly Goodreads. *Note: As a matter of ethics, I do not hand out free arcs or galleys, or provide any type of compensation, in exchange for reviews: These must come from a reader’s heart without “strings attached.”

5.      You don’t mind handing out bookmarks or other “swag” to potential readers.

6.      You recognize that this is a closed, private group, and all posts, images, or information may not be shared without expressed permission: In other words, what happens in Dark Moon Vale stays in Dark Moon Vale. ;-)

IF THIS IS YOU, then we would love to have you on the Blood Curse Series STREET TEAM for the release of Blood FATHER…and beyond.

IF THIS IS NOT YOU, no worries! There are several other ways to get involved. Please follow this link to see other options:

Between May 15th and May 30th
  • Send a direct email to with “Street Team” in the subject line.
  • Please provide your real name, email address, and facebook user name (for instance, if your real name is Mary Jones, but your facebook profile says Bloody Mary, I need to know both!)
  • Let me know that you’ve seen this blog; you’re still interested in joining; and why you’d like to be part of the group. (This doesn’t have to be deep! LOL. I’d just like a chance to “meet” you.)
  • CHECK BACK on this blog on May 31st. I will post the names of the first 10-12 members (who will be joining us) on that day and forward your info to my admin. And I deeply apologize in advance for the impersonal nature of this system – it’s the only way I know how to keep up… So thanks for your understanding!
  • Oh, and please do not send requests prior to May 15th: I would like as many readers as possible to see the notice before I open enrollment, so I'm posting info in advance.
You will be added to the private facebook group immediately, and you can jump right in and start meeting other members. They’re an awesome group of people! 

Please note: If we are not already connected as “friends” on facebook, I will NOT be able to add you to the group until you send me a friend request. So please do so right away. 

You can “friend” me at:

Other Information
  • “Open Enrollment” begins May 15th and CLOSES May 31st (at midnight, MST).
  • I'll be adding 10 - 12 new members total based on THE ORDER IN WHICH I RECEIVE YOUR REQUESTS. And the reason I do this is heartfelt: I want to keep the group small, so I can get to know each member and give them the time & attention they deserve. I am absolutely honored that ANYONE would be interested in joining my Street Team -- sometimes it’s hard to believe you guys are real! :-)

 Thank you again for your interest! 


  1. Being a member of the ST is awesome. I've connected with some amazing people that share the same love for the Series that I do :)

  2. A great place to meet and talk about our addiction to the Blood Curse Series. Find informative ways to pimp our Addiction!

  3. I would give anything to be a part of your team and offer this kind of support Tessa, because I love you work that much...I just don't know if I would have the time needed to handle things properly. You know I will tweet, FB and anything else to support you though! Also, think about it and check it out - - I would love to have you as a featured Diva for your release! Love ya! Street Team in spirit, Shelbie =)

    1. Absolutely no worries, Shelbie! Thanks so much for the kind words. :-) And I would love to have a "featured Diva's" spot on your blog for the release! If you would send your email address to, I will forward all the Blood Father promo material to you (I have a standard email), and we can go from there. :-) Thanks, again!

  4. I have never enjoyed so many people in a group as I have the Blood Curse Street Team, I am forever learning, laughing and talking up a storm, and of course it's a major bonus that it's Tessa Dawn's street team, so many opportunities to talk about the series and learn what inspired Tessa to create such a phenomenal series, who, what when etc. If ye truly want to know more, thoughtfully recommend ye join up, yes we do help promote Tessa after all it IS a street team, to me it's a true pleasure and honor to help one of the best.

  5. We love and Tessa and her awesome Blood Curse Series! It is great that we can talk about the BCS and meet some of the most interesting people. Don't forget to get your husbands or boyfriends to read the books along with you. we have enjoyed reading these books together and talk about our favorite part and share that with Tessa and the street team.

  6. Honored to e on the Street Team. Tessa is an awesome author and has written such wonderful stories. You can't help but get sucked in. Let's make the release of Blood Father make headlines. Go Team!! :)

  7. I will be honored to be on your street team Tessa

  8. I've been a lover of all things vampire since the age of 9. I've watched awful movies and I've tolerated some...well...less than stellar written works. After years of searching, waiting and pleading to the powers that be for an original vampire tale, I had the pleasure of being introduced to the Blood Curse Series. And beyond that, I've had the pleasure of being a part of the Street Team to help spread the word about this amazing series. The experience is even more amazing because of the members of this team. Being able to share my love of these stories with others, hearing their thoughts and interpretations makes me feel like a part of a little family. It's been a great ride...and I'm looking forward to next step in Tessa's journey. Please...join us!!

  9. I'd like to extend a huge SILIVASI SHOUT-OUT to the newest members of the BCS STREET TEAM.
