Five Things Kylie worries about in Awake at Dawn

October 11th is getting closer.  (And, yes, I’m still staring at the Countdown Clock on my website.)  I’m starting to set up some booksignings, as well as library and school events for the month of October to celebrate the release of Awake at Dawn, book 2 of my Shadow Falls series.   As if that won’t keep me busy enough , I’m also going to be doing a final polish of Taken at Dusk, book three in the next few weeks.

So, for today’s blog, I thought I’d do something a little different.  To get you feeling as excited about Awake at Dawn’s release as I am, I thought I’d share with you five questions that concern Kylie in Awake at Dawn.

Now, I can’t give you the answers to these five questions – well, not yet anyway.  I promise you they will be all explained in Awake at Dawn.  So, get your imaginations all fired up and read the five things that worries Kylie most in AAD.  Feel free to share your guesses about the answers in the comments section.

Have a great day, guys!



1)       Why does blood suddenly taste so good?

2)       What does her dreams about Lucas really mean?

3)       If some of the supernaturals can hear her heart beat and others can read her emotions, can they also tell what she’s feeling whenever Derek gets close to her?

4)       What will she find out when she finally makes it to the waterfalls?  And who is it that she spies behind that wall of water?

5)       Will Holiday and Burnett, and Miranda and Della, ever stop fighting?

  1. Here are some thought I think could happen in the next book. I hope you like it.
    First of all Kylie is special. Maybe all supernatural develop a taste for blood; and they all have different forms of blood lust. As for the dream Kylie is having about Lucas maybe she is having visions and she able to see in the future or she must really love him. Also I think Kylie is adjusting to her powers and what she can really do. I think she will discover more thing about herself that might scare her or maybe in lighten her.( so Kylie is adapting.) Thirdly I think some of the other supernatural people can sense her and hear her heartbeat and read her feeling for Derek when she close to him. When Kylie ends up in the water falls I think she will see the shadow death angels, because they are ghost and she can see them. She also said she feels she is being call to the falls and it must be for a reason.(In Born At Midnight I read) I think who might be spying on Kylie is those vampires who were trying to kill her. Or Lucas making sure she is safe because he can’t be with her at the moment. Lastly I think Holiday and Burnett will not stop fighting (ugh why can’t they go out already?) I think they both love each other. Miranda and Della might have get a long better in the second book it does not mean they don’t have little fight every once in a while.(They are not perfect.) I can not wait for Awaken At Dusk. I Love Love your book C.C.

  5. Hello Webmaster, I noticed that is ranking pretty low for some keywords, this may be due to the new Google Panda update, or it could be due to a variety of other factors. I’m sure you already know about On-page SEO, where Google cares highly about proper formatting of various H1/H2/H3 tags, having your main keyword appear in the beginning of your post and having your post end with the keyword, along with having keyword related alt tags and very relevant LSI. However, you do not seem to have the proper Keywords or relevant Keywords in your posts and in the website. Right now you need a tool or plugin that will allow you to check on Keyword insights, search trends and check for backlink analysis and to find out your Keyword competition. To find a Keyword Plugin that combines both Keyword Research and has the ability as a Rank Checker is what WordPress Seo Keyword, please check out our 5 minute video.

  6. Here is a MAJOR keyword research tip that everyone needs to pay attention to when looking for keywords and keyword phrases that they want to try and get a web page, post or website ranked for:

    1) DO NOT Mistake the amount of search results returned by a google search as your competiton! Here is a real example:

    The search term “Black without the quotes in Google returns 28,300,000 results.

    BUT YOU ARE NOT competing against 28,300,000 articles.

    For the term “Black Dogs” there are only 10 competitors.

    THAT IS RIGHT! You are competing against 10. The first 10 in the google search results!

    The first 10 results are all that count because your goal is to get on the first page of Google and in order to do that you have to get ahead of 1 or moreof the top 10.

    SO DO NOT look at the total results as your competition and let it scare you!

    OK one more tip:
    Do not listen to the “Guru’s” who will tell you to do an allintitle and allinurl search and gauge your competition by that number.

    If you want to do it right, do the allintitle search (in the google search bar enter allintitle:”black dogs”) and right down the first 10 results then cross reference those against which ones are in the regular google search. Same with the allinurl google search (in google enter allinurl:”Black Dogs”).

    By cross referencing these two with the first ten returned using googles basic search you can get a feel for how much competition there is for you if you give your article page or website the added juice of having the exact match keyword phrase in the url and title!

    There is more but that can be saved for another time, this is a great place for you to start!
