…there was a headstrong fairy princess and a frog with an axe.
But that’s another story.
My name is Dawn Metcalf and I write dark, quirky and sometimes humorous speculative fiction. My debut novel, LUMINOUS, is a YA paranormal fantasy about a Latina-American superheroine who can change her skin and my current novel, INDELIBLE: Book One of the Twixt, is just your average fairy tale about a guy and a girl, a deadly mistake, a number of sharp, pointy objects and a plot to end the Age of Man. The second book in the Twixt Series, INVISIBLE: Book Two of the Twixt, is due out from Harlequin Teen in September, 2014.

This might give you a hint as to how much fun I had at the Chapter-by-Chapter Book Rave in New York. This is my bowling team, complete with wigs (brought by yours truly to distract from my lack of bowling prowess)! We had a great time laughing, bowling and freaking out the other teams, which was a great way to cap a day filled with signing, chatting, visiting fellow authors I’ve only met online and generally having any excuse to hang with other cool people who are passionate about books. It was like a mini-BEA with none of the crowds and twice the fun rides!
And I got to wear my favorite purple page wig. Win-win!
I know I should be posting more.
I know I should be promoting INVISIBLE’s launch more.
But my cuddle buddy, Euphrates, died this week and he is missed terribly. He was loving, jealous even, ready to greet everyone and very demanding of food & affection, but would reward anyone with a hefty squat in your lap and motorboat purring (he weighed over 20 pounds before cancer made him bony)–he was just about everything a cat-owner could love about a cat.
He leaves behind lifelong friend, Tigris, who doesn’t know what to do without him and my family who doesn’t know what to do without him.
I am trying to remember to be loving and cuddly with them right now.
