Dawn Tevy ~ Author, Inspire-or, and Empowered Woman

Dawn has managed to utilize the difficulties in her life, including low self esteem and perceived loss of power, as a springboard for personal transformation. She says “I had been laid off. My marriage was falling apart, and all I could see at the end of the tunnel was nothing but blackness. I found myself muddling through life, and became tired of it.”

In 2008 Dawn met and began working with Gwenn Henkel, a Certified Medical and Master Hypnotherapist, who she says, “helped me to see myself in a new light.” (www.EntrancingLife.com).

“I was rediscovering me,” Dawn says and adds, “I began to change my world by changing my thoughts, and everything else began to change, too.” Happier and more positive, she began to see hope, although she was still out of work and had a failing marriage. Dawn was finally ready for real change in her life and began to read…a lot.

After reading the works of Dr. Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle, Dawn ventured out in to a new train of thought.

“These authors and teachers all helped in some significant way by guiding me through this amazing journey I’m currently on.

I have come to understand this: our personal world is nothing more than thoughts.

We choose our thoughts; therefore, we create our own world.

If we say, ‘oh man, it’s Monday. It’s going to be an awful day,’ I promise you, you WILL have an awful day!”, Dawn says.

“The bottom line is this”, Dawn shares,“We must choose our thoughts wisely. Our thoughts become our reality. Our perceived reality creates who we are, whether we are happy, sad, jealous, miserable, or insecure. Those feelings create energy, our ‘aura’. Consciously or not, we project that energy out into the world. Our energy, both positive and negative is highly contagious and attracts similar energy into our lives like a homing beacon.”

Dawn goes on to say, “The most difficult part of this metamorphosis, within me, was the realization that I was personally responsible for the predicament I was in!

I could not blame it on my parents, my partner, or anyone else.

 

Only ME!

Once I truly understood and accepted this, I was able to make huge changes within me and my life. When I realized all the negative words that had been spoken to or yelled out of anger at me was really the way the other person felt about him/herself and had nothing to do with me at all.

But this works both ways, test it for yourself, the next time you put someone down or say negative things toward anyone, take a good look at yourself and your life. How many of these things apply directly to you and how you truly feel about yourself deep down? Stop blaming the world and take a good hard look in the mirror. It’s amazing what you can discover there, if you’re only honest with yourself. I’m not saying that it is easy and I’m certainly not saying that it’s not painful. As we all know, the truth is generally painful, that’s why we try so very hard to avoid it, but it is also life changing, trust me, I know.”

Clearly Dawn has made significant changes in her life, but how did that lead to writing a series of novels? Dawn reflects, “After reading the entire ‘Twilight’ series in just 5 days, something inside me wanted to give writing a try.” She adds, “The authors J.K. Rowling, whom I am a huge fan of and Stephenie Meyer convinced, by their works, that anything is possible. So I sat down at my computer to write a story just for the fun of it. One month later, I had over 250 pages and a story that had taken on a life of its own.”

Dawn adds, “To be totally honest, I have no idea where the story came from when I first started. It almost played out like a movie. I continued writing just to see where the story would go.”

Dawn says that prior to reading “Twilight” she had reread the Harry Potter series many times and it was J.K. Rowling who reignited my passion for reading. Her books made me think how awesome it must be to write such wonderful stories. Initially I wrote for myself. I just wanted to see what I would come up with…it had never occurred to me that I could write a story of any kind, much less a series of novels.”

By August 2009 Dawn’s first book, which she describes as “a more ancient version of Lara Croft that takes place in a world somewhere between Eragon and Avatar,” had become the first in what will be a series of nine to twelve sequels. Dawn shopped for an agent briefly, sending out only three query letters before deciding to enlist the help of an editor. Dawn says, “I didn’t know who or what I was looking for, but I was certain I would know the right person when I found him/her.”

She sent out information to seven reputable editors and was especially struck by a response and he recommended editor Lou Aronica, whom she contacted in October 2009. Dawn is thrilled and honored to say she began working with Lou officially in February 2010.

Ultimately Dawn’s goal is to publish her fantasy series “Angels & Warriors” traditionally, but with a few twists and turns along the way. She is already working with two production companies, a director, a screenplay writer, and a composer. They have begun laying the foundation necessary to turn her novel into a movie. Dawn has also assembled a phenomenal team of artists, who will be turning “Angels & Warriors” into a graphic novel series.

About her Book:

Angels & Warriors:

‘ The Awakening is set in a time and land that has long since faded into the haziness of legend and lore.

Lady Tenà, a Beloved and Celebrated Woman, is the future queen of the most powerful nation in the world and is destined to make history in ways that she could never have imagined.

As the story opens, Lady Tenà finds herself in a precarious situation as those sworn to protect her, hunt her down like a wild beast. Tenà quickly realizes that death is her only option, but not at the hands of her would-be assassins. Instead, she will die on her terms. Tenà’s dance with death leads her to a strange and wonderful new world, full of real magic, mystery, and things unknown.

In this fascinating new land, Lady Tenà also finds romance, when an admirer who has loved her from afar, finally reveals his true feelings toward her. But another seeks to make Tenà his own and will claim his queen by any means necessary.

Tenà soon learns that romance is the least of her concerns when she discovers that her arrival has been long awaited by many. Some will seek to help Tenà in her purpose, which she is yet to discover. While others maneuver to use her virtues for their darkest intentions. Tenà vows to fight on the side of the greater good, but keeping that promise may cost more than she’s willing to pay.

Lose yourself in the world of Angels & Warriors, a novel of joy and fury, hope and desperation, love and violence. The story will inflame your passion.

The adventures keep you coming back for more….

And when your longing for clarity is ignited,

The Awakening has begun!’

Dawn explains that ultimately what she has learned from her own Journey is that

“It is all about perspective.

If we think negatively, we can only see the negative in our lives.”

 

 

“All of us have encountered negative people and can make us doubt and second guess ourselves. As far as I’m concerned, negative energy is a plague that slowly creeps along like a dark shadow, destroying everything it touches, including our hopes, dreams, and relationships.”

 

“However,” she adds, “most of us have also had the fortune to experience that positive person everyone loves to spend time with and who makes us feel like we can accomplish anything. The good news is that all of us have the choice to be positive. Things are not always perfect. But if we choose to look for the positive in all situations, we will find it.”
