Fan sale

Just wanted to drop a quick note about Tangled Magic being on sale for only $2.99 through the pre-order time to February 1st.

If you are already a fan or have yet to experience that (grin), this is a great time to get it. The price will be going up after the deadline and may vary depending upon how long it takes a platform to update their prices, so don’t wait.

Click the link to see if your favorite book-selling platform is listed — some might not come up until 1/28 because they don’t allow pre-orders. (Boo!)

A good deal on Books Gone Bad

I just heard about a promotion going on for the Books Gone Bad bundle and I thought I better hurry and pass it along.

Now until August 28th, you can get 40% off the bundle — the whole bundle! This isn’t just one book — at Kobo.

These books wait for you with spine-tingling surprises. Get started on your fall reading now.

Don’t say you haven’t been warned.

 

New items in my Zibbet store

When I’m not out riding my bike around the valley, or scaling the mountain to Gohaldinest, or having coffee with Loki, or some other adventure, I’m busy working on my artistic business. That in and of itself could be an all-consuming task.

Recently (as in tonight), I’ve been updating the books in my Zibbet store. You can now order your copy of Eggs at Play, Mystery of the Stardust Monk, Let’s Make a Deal, 1-800-CallLoki, and 1-800-IceBaby. I don’t have physical copies of Let Make a Deal and 1-800-CallLoki quite yet, but I will soon. As for 1-800-IceBaby, I probably won’t have my copies until early September. I am planning on having them for FanX Salt Lake. However, if I were to get enough pre-orders, I would be tempted to order early just so I’m not trying to ship books out and get ready for a show all in the same week. Just saying.

Use code SHINYNEW to get 10% off your order of $20 or more. (offer good until August 15th)

Paintings will be updated in my Zibbet shop soon too. Not quite sure when I’ll get to those, but I do hope I can get some posted this week. It’s on my plan at least.

Time to run. Steigan is about to have an important conversation with Aeribela, so I’ve got to get there.

Happy adventuring.

Progress – July 9, 2018

My 4th of July started at 6:30 a.m. It didn’t end until 1:30 a.m. on July 5th. With the exception of sharing meals with my boys and all of us playing Legendary (where we finally managed to beat Thanos!), I spent the entire day getting ready for Salt Lake Gaming Con. Just so many little things that needed to be done.

I didn’t get a word written that day.

I also have been so tired (with some other things going on too) that I just didn’t get this blog done as I normally do. So, it got delayed a day.

I did manage, in the extra time, to get my dictated words transcribed, so I got to add them into my numbers. I just was too busy running around last week and didn’t get enough written. Yes, that means I didn’t get my full word count done, so I once again start at zero.

I’m not sure how much I’ll get done this week either. I’ve got Wizard World Boise coming up this weekend. Fortunately, there’s very little for me to do to get ready for that show now that I’ve done most of it for Salt Lake Gaming Con. If you want to get 20% off tickets for Wizard World Boise, please use code SKYS20 at checkout. This is not an affiliate code and I don’t get anything in return for you using it. It’s merely a discount.

I should say that Salt Lake Gaming Con was fun. I met some really great people and I’ll be sharing more about that here later on in the week (unless I get too busy, then it’ll be next week). I also learned about some other shows in the area and am trying to book more. We’ll see what comes out of that.

Well, right now I want to go get some sleep.

Then, I have to figure out what my Wednesday fiction will be. (yikes!)

Drawing/painting last week: I varnished a ton of ACEO’s for my shows – yes, new miniature artwork if you come see me at a show.

Audio: I spent less than an hour editing audio. Yep, this hit the floor this last week too.

Make Me an Offer

I’m trying to clear out some older artwork to make room for new art. That means you can get a good discount on some of my older work. Currently on eBay:

Yes, there is a list price of $75-$85 on these if you want to make sure you get your desired piece, but you can also make a lower offer if you wish. I will accept reasonable offers.

Get in there now because if someone comes along with a decent offer, your artwork might vanish.

Trust me, as someone who kicks myself for not buying a college student’s dragon painting I saw several years ago, wishing you owned a piece is nothing but a false dream.

More pieces will be added soon. I am even tempted to auction off some of my larger pieces.

Discover the World of Sacred Knight

The Three Books (Legend #1 of the Sacred Knight series) Book & painting by Dawn Blair ©2011

I was recently interviewed by Annie Douglass Lima about the world in my Sacred Knight novels as part of the Realm Explorers feature on Annie’s blog. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about what the story is about or go in-depth into my world, now is your chance.

As a special benefit, Annie and I wanted to do something extra special to get more readers into the Sacred Knight series, something I could share with my readers and hers.

For this week only, the first three books in the series are on sale with reduced prices starting at $0.99 for the first book and $1.99 for the other two. I rarely put Manifest the Magic and To Birth a Destiny on sale so please take advantage of it while you can. With Kindle Countdown deals, the price increases over time, so the sooner you take action, the more of a discount you’ll receive off the list price.

I hope you enjoy the Realm Explorers interview on Annie’s blog. If you’d like to know more about my world, please feel free to leave your questions. I’ll answer the ones I can (but I won’t give out spoilers).  I hope you enjoy.
