Just Released - The Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson


Jessie moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school let out for summer break. Her newly single mother and Jessie move in with grandma Gayle. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her 'this sucks' list. It's bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.

Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer.

Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father's surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead. 

This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie.

Today, I'm pleased to introduce Devyn Dawson and her new YA Paranormal book, The Light Tamera self-published book just released on Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes & Noble. Devyn has graciously agreed to answer some questions about her book and herself, so I'll turn this over to her. Enjoy the interview, and then sign up below to for a chance to win a free e-copy of the book.

Who is your favorite character in The Light Tamer and why?  
I really like Amber - she comes across as sarcastic but she is really a sweetheart.  She lost her brother when she was 14 and I did too.  I think I relate to her, and understand why she does things she does.

Do you have a favorite scene?  
I like the ‘tucking in’ scene - you’ll have to read the story to know what that means. :)

Now about you...
Name two things within arm’s reach.   
Homemade granola and a Micro Korg.

What is the weirdest food you've ever eaten?  
My niece made some brussel sprouts that were broiled - she found it on Pinterest and I told her that not every recipe on there is good…. The point was made.  LOL

If you had unlimited money and space, what one thing would you add to your house or apartment, and in which room?  
I’d add a giant library office - the kind with sliding wooden ladders and shelves for all of my first editions of books (I have unlimited money, so I can get them all).  It will have a high tech fireplace with fancy lights and a waterfall.  I’d also have a secretary that can help me - he’ll be handsome too and smart, and makes great coffee.

What's the most unusual or outrageous thing you've ever done to understand and perfect a character's POV?
Not in this book but in my werewolf books - I will throw a treat out to my 3 black labs and watch how they react.  Only one ends up with the treat  (well, until I get the vibe of werewolves) - I end up giving them all a treat after the torture. 

Is there anything else about your book or yourself you'd like people to know?  
I appreciate everyone that finds enjoyment in my books.  When I was diagnosed with Narrow Angle Glaucoma and had five operations on my eyes…I knew it was time to write a book.  I’ve written four, and I’m thankful every day for that one routine exam.  Please take care of your eyes.

Thanks for visiting, Devyn, & best of luck with your new book.
Thank you for having me!  


Devyn writes paranormal YA books about the characters that live in her head. You’ll usually find her either writing or reading and sometimes doing both. She has always been the ‘eccentric girl,’ the one with the big imagination and colorful stories. She was born and raised in Oklahoma City, a place she’ll always call home, yet lives in the lush green and humid climate of North Carolina. In high school, you would have found her and her personalities entertaining her audience (everyone); her love for theater and creative writing earned her many awards. She was Goth before Goth was a style, she dreamt of being Star from The Lost Boys and knew Keifer would one day find her and they’d fall madly in love.
