Blood Curse Series

Book 11

This book will become available on November 14, 2019. You will not be charged until it is released.

Let sleeping dogs lie…

Don’t stir up the past.

Especially when that past is an ancient, feral vampire sleeping at the bottom of an aged cobblestone well, one who is famished for blood, determined to claim you, and haunted by mystical shadows…remnants from the past.

Long ago, in a Romanian castle, the last females of a dying race called him Nanaşule. Godfather. One who wields the powers of the gods, yet behaves as Father, one who is both respected and beloved…at least before the Blood Curse.

One who hails from a long line of powerful mages who served the monarchy faithfully.

But something is different about Fabian Antonescu. He is haunted by visions of a golden hawk and a copper-eyed raven—cryptic vials of blood—and he will do anything to remain one step ahead of his memories. For the secrets shrouded in the fog could change everything.


Gwendolyn Hamilton, as strong as she is, has already survived the unthinkable. She didn’t ask to be thrust into a predatory world of vampires, warriors, and ancient mages. She didn’t ask to be taken by Fabian.

Yet one touch of a stone, one electrical current, one fateful moment when a vampire’s eyes met hers were more than enough to set off an explosion — and cause a thunderous BLOOD ECHO.

If she hopes to survive, she must answer back… 

To the call of the wild ~ to a savage vampire.

To the demands of antiquity in a modern world.

To the threat and promise of a looming Blood Moon ~ and the destiny that awaits her.

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 novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling.

Eighteen books later, Tessa now has readers in over 100 countries, and her novels have reached #1 bestselling status, eighteen times, appearing on 59 bestseller lists in 47 different categories. Her personal author-ranking has climbed to #2 in Horror and #11 in both Fantasy and Paranormal, placing her on the Amazon “Bestselling Author” charts next to three of her favorite authors: Stephen King, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.   

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains, but 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 Dog.


As of 2019, she is a member of NINC; SFWA; and RWA(PAN).

Writing is her bliss.

Do you want to make a living writing fiction?

Never give up on your dream!

Do You Have Any Advice for Aspiring Authors is a short, no-nonsense booklet containing five practical tips plus inspiration for aspiring writers.

 Chapter One: WRITE! (No, really…)

If you truly want to be a writer…and then a published author (traditional, hybrid, or indie)…you have to write and write and write! The exact same thing could be said about reading, devouring everything you can in the genre you wish to write in, studying the prose of numerous authors, and getting a feel for the bestselling stories (common themes, world-building, and contemporary writing), but for the purpose of this booklet, we’ll stick to writing: There’s simply no substitute for putting words on a page…

 Chapter Two: You need a professional editor! (And no, it cannot be your sister-in-law.)

A lawyer needs a paralegal; a professional football coach needs an offensive and defensive coordinator; and a professional author needs a professional editor.

 Chapter Three: You really should advertise! (Or at least think about it.)

The real question is: Is it okay to just bury that treasure where no one can find it?

 Chapter Four: You must possess a very stiff spine! (Your opinion is none of my business.)

My point is this: If you are going to keep changing, editing, alternating your style and your storytelling based on personal preferences, then prepare for an endless game of whack-a-mole. That extra romance you just added to appease Sally has ticked off Susan. That character who was a little too gruff for Joe was not brutish enough for Daniel. Now you’re caught in an endless vortex of switching something to appease a reader, only to have to change it back…in order to appease another.

 Chapter Five: Never give up! (The Law of Attraction)

At the end of the day, this is your gift, your diamond; what do you want to do with it?

“Wow!!! I absolutely loved this booklet. It actually encouraged me to keep going. It validated some of my thoughts and answered questions I hadn’t thought to ask yet. Thank you!!!”  - Julie (Aspiring author: 5 novels started; 1 finished & requested by editor; hoping to publish novel #7!)

“{This booklet} is an engaging, entertaining and curiously profound read. No matter where one is in their career, Dawn offers gentle reminders of how we can stay true to our source and produce the best work(s) we possibly can.” ~ Cara (Corporate communications writer, ghostwriter, and scriptwriter with her own novel in progress.)

"I sat, I read, I laughed, I loved it." ~ Dennis (MFA graduate, seeking agent & querying first novel.)
