One does not walk

As a Lord of Dubinshire

I am often asked which of my books is my favorite.

Unfair question! (grin)

For starters, it’s akin to asking which of your children is your favorite. Secondly, the excitement is always tied up in the books a writer is currently working on, not the ones that are published. Once I’m satisfied with an adventure and its released, I’m moving on to the next one. Now, since I usually write 3-5 different stories at a time, yes, I do have a favorite at that point — it’s always the one being the easiest to write!

However, when pressed for an answer, at this moment in time, my favorite is To Birth a Destiny. Granted, one has to read the first 2 book in the series to get there, but it is the book I love.  Read the rest of this entry »

Free Fiction Day: Dragons of Wellsdeep – Chapter 1

August 15, 2018

Are you ready to fall in love with Moonhunter?

I’m just saying — he’s infectious.

Much like with Onesong, you are getting a raw story. It is not yet complete, so I’m certain things will get added or taken out later. Parts may not always make sense. But, we had so much fun when I did this with Onesong that I thought I’d give this one a roll too.

Please like and share the story with all your friends. It’s more fun to read these chapters together. As long as everyone keeps enjoying the story, I’ll do my best to post chapters. (I will trust the process though, just like I did in Onesong.)

UPDATE: This chapter will remain up as a sample chapter for the book. It will not go away. 

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Dragons of Wellsdeep

Chapter 1

by Dawn Blair

Her time of merely watching drew to a close. Soon, she’d take the child.

The little boy headed to the well. She watched him in the reflection of the water’s surface, a waving mirage with the blue sky behind him. He stomped his feet as he walked, pounding on the earth like a heartbeat. She felt his restrained temper tantrum mixing with her own pulse in a growing, synchronized cacophony with his irritation.

Cover reveal: Dragons of Wellsdeep

August 3, 2018

I hope you’ve been enjoying Mystery of the Stardust Monk each week. Next up in a couple of weeks will be Dragons of Wellsdeep. Much like when I started posting Onesong, the story isn’t completely finished yet and what you’ll be seeing is an unfinished version of it.

Yes, you get to see all the mistakes in their grandeur. (grin) It’s a true look at how I work. Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 49

June 27, 2018

Only 1 week to go after this.

I’m not sure what I’m going to run next. I’ve been debating.

I just never actually thought I’d run this to the end. It made good practice for getting me to write even though I had a good start. I was terrified of the weekly blog catching up to and overtaking me. Honestly I probably should do the same sort of thing with Dragons of Wellsdeep — I have a good start on that novel (as well as the official cover done up in mock form, but it wouldn’t take much to finalize it), but it feels like I’m dragging my feet on it. Of course, I have only recently realized that I’m writing it in two points of view — another odd thing since I usually like to stick with one character, but Balthier really needs a voice too. Balthier is developing as a character and giving me some surprises. I really can’t wait to see what happens with that.

One the other hand, a couple shorter pieces would be nice too after coming off such a long stint.

Okay, fellow adventurer, I know you’re as excited as I am to get onto the next chapter, so let’s go!

Onesong is an epic fantasy story filled with action, adventure, and sword and sorcery. Chapter 49 is available for 1 week only! Then it will turn back into a pumpkin and a new chapter will appear!  Read the rest of this entry »


Sacred Knight box set coming soon

June 7, 2018

I’m so excited and I can’t keep this under wraps any longer. I swear you can probably hear me squealing right now!

Box sets for the ebooks of the Sacred Knight series are coming – I hope to have them up by this weekend.

I still have a couple things to finalize, but I thought I’d show you the covers. Read the rest of this entry »


Onesong – Chapter 36

March 28, 2018

I feel like all I’ve done recently is take notes for Onesong. My notes page inside my file (something that I didn’t do until this novel — usually I have notes outside of my draft, which means I always have to go looking for it. I think this is a habit I’ll have to change because I do like having my notes inside the file) is growing. Most of them are simple little things, scenes I still need to write mostly.

But soon, I’ll be ready to get back to Onesong and I’ll have lots of notes to start with. I can’t wait. Read the rest of this entry »
