The Light Tamer by Devyn Dawson
Publisher: Self-Published
Date of Publication: April 24th, 2012
Goodreads Summary:
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.

This or That? with Devyn Dawson

What do you prefer to read: physical books or eBooks?

I love my e-books and I haven’t read a physical book in a year… BUT I buy real books too. I prefer to read my e-books though.

Would you like to time travel into the past or into the future?

I’d like the future - the past didn’t have air conditioning or other creature comforts (Charmin).

What part is easier for you to write: the first chapter or the last chapter?

I tend to rewrite the first chapter over and over to draw the reader in. I have great satisfaction when I finish the book.

If you could only drink either tea or coffee for the rest of your life, which would you choose?


What creates a more lasting impression for you: the cover or the synopsis of a book?

The cover.

Are you an early riser or do you prefer to sleep as long as possible?

I keep vampire hours, I go to bed around 4 in the morning every day and I get up around 11.

What kind of books do you prefer to read yourself: Adult or Young Adult?

I really like young adult books.

Are you a thrill-seeking person or does the thought of bungee jumping scare you?

I’m a adrenaline junkie all the way…

  6. Hi! Thank you so much for having me on your blog today! I have to be honest - I adore this cover too. Originally Jessie was a brunette - until I saw this girl and fell in love with her look. This was a very fun book to write. It was satisfying that it couldn't be compared to anything else...example Vamps and Weres. Although I do write a werewolf series. I had the freedom not to worry about another series like it. Good luck everyone and I hope you enjoy the book! xoxo Devyn
