Once Upon A Time…

...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. The Twixt series, including INDELIBLE and INVISIBLE, 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 third book in the Twixt Series, INSIDIOUS: Book Three of the Twixt, is available for pre-order now!

What I’m Up To Lately

Manuscript pic

This. The first round of edits for the last book in the Twixt series. INVINCIBLE is a monster manuscript wrapping up some of my favorite characters in an epic world-changing plot and I can only hope that I did justice to all of the people, plots, subplots, loose ends, lingering questions and hoped-for moments. I'm swimming upstream through the manuscript right now and slaughtering all my darlings with a red pen o' doom.

Wish me luck!

Inspiration of the Week: Balloon Chihuly

Balloon Animal Chandelier

Anyone who's following me and the Twixt series knows how much I adore the work of Dale Chihuly whose glasswork is something beyond astounding and always strikes me with its shapes and colors and inventiveness--well, I've stumbled upon his double in balloons. Dominic Wilcox, imaginative creative inventor, created a chandelier out of balloon animals that instantly brought the esteemed artist to mind...with a smile on my face. The playfulness and color and light was just an instant bit of fun and I've been admiring his work ever since. Have a look at his latest Upworthy video, or this bit of fun titled "Variations On Normal":
