“It is time to speak of that which we never mention: the prophecy, the omen, the fact that I have come of age…”

In the decades since an innocent human slave was taken to Castle Dragon, against her will, for the sole purpose of bearing a son for the monarchy, much has changed in the Realm: Alliances made in secret have flourished; sons born of veiled paternity have grown to adulthood; and dangerous warlocks, seasoned witches, and cunning shades have risen to powerful positions.  

Yet all is not as it seems.

Beneath the shadow of an eerie double moon, a dark, tormented evil is rising…

Stirring.

Awakening.

A prophecy is beckoning: “It is time. It is time.” And a lethal dragon prince is growing restless to seize the throne of his bestial ancestors.

King Demitri will never step aside.

Mina Louvet—indeed, all the Sklavos Ahavi are caught between worlds.

And the web of lies spun by the eldest dragon prince—the treachery, deception, and perversion—may very well spark a war of fire and fury unlike anything the Realm has ever seen—or hoped to survive.

Great reward requires greater risk, and every beating heart will be wagered in this high-stakes game of blood and reckoning.

Mina Louvet is a fighter, a human with a powerful will to survive in a world dominated by warlocks, soul-eaters, and shifters. Identified by the king’s witch as one of the rare, invaluable females in Dragons Realm who can give birth to a dragon’s son, she was stolen from her parents as a child and taken to the Keep to be reared in the ways of the Ahavi. As one of the few, the elect ~ the Sklavos Ahavi ~ Mina is expected to feed her master’s fire, reanimate his blood, and above all else, give him strong dragon offspring:  children who will one day rise to power. But Mina, to her great misfortune, is far too intelligent for her own good: She has a stubborn sense of justice, and she is wholly incapable of blind submission.

 

Dante Dragona is as cunning as he is lethal, as methodical as he is dangerous, and as terrifying as he is powerful. As the eldest of three dragon princes, he is destined to succeed his merciless father to the throne of Castle Dragon. But first he must do his duty to the Realm by governing one of its harsh, unforgiving districts and claiming a Sklavos Ahavi. Hardened by the sadistic abuse he endured as a child and shaped by the tragic suicide of his twin, the prince lives only to fulfill his obligations to the monarchy: to maintain law and order in a bestial land, to contain its magical inhabitants, and to keep the kingdom safe from its mortal enemies, the Lycanian shifters across the sea. Like all primordial dragons, he rules with an iron fist, dominates with absolute power, and punishes with fire. Those who oppose him die a swift and brutal death ~ subject, enemy, or slave ~ the Realm has no tolerance for weakness.

 

When the iron resolve of a dragon prince clashes with the stubborn will of a slave, bonds will be broken, alliances will be tested, and a kingdom will be set ablaze.

 

DRAGONS REALM by Tessa Dawn
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.)
