Loooong time no post!
Life has me around the throat guys!
Firstly, I’m back working on The Changeling Curse as part of NaNoWriMo. I’ve added 13,000 words so far. There is some heavy personal stuff going on at the moment but I do hope to get the draft finished this month. I was looking back on my previous post that said I started the draft in 2014. Wow that’s like five years ago! Crazy.
The next thing you need to know is that Spiritbound, Bespelled and Invoked are due to be re-released. When I was away in Europe, Harlequin asked me if I wanted the rights back to all my books and I said yes.
Spiritbound is due out soon and so is Bespelled. I’m probably going to tinker with Invoked for the re-release. It didn’t sell well so maybe it was a little hard core or something. Who knows??? No readers equals no feedback.
Anyway, there you go–lots happening.
I will be signing next year as part of the ARRA signings in Melbourne and Sydney. The link to the events (Romantic Rendezvous 2020) is here.
I’m hoping to have paperbacks of all my books for sale. First time they will all be in print. And of course, The Changeling Curse too.
After what feels like a really long time, Dani is back at the keyboard writing paranormal romance. I’ve dusted off the beginning of a draft of The Changeling Curse, the sequel story to The Sorcerer’s Spell. When I started working on it again, I realised that I hadn’t touched it since November 2014. I had started on it during NaNoWriMo that year but work at the day job had been really full on and I had to give up on it. Then real life took over.
I had been meaning to get back to it, but wow that’s a long time to leave something to cool. Luckily, I also discovered a goodly amount of notes about the plot too.
I can’t give you a timeline to when I’ll finish it as I’m writing it for fun at the moment. To refresh your memory, The Changeling Curse features Rolf, the werewolf, who you met in The Sorcerer’s Spell. Something strange is happening. Random people are starting to change into werewolves, but most end up dying. It’s a series of events that threatens to expose the paranormal world and is rooted in the Collegium of Sorcerer’s and the dark sorcerer behind Dane’s curse. Abbie is caught up in the curse and is really pissed about it.
And here is the cover.
I did a big post about discount books and free books on http://donnamareehanson.com

I was just checking out Amazon and found a five star review for The Sorcerer’s Spell. Happy dance!
The person leaving the review is hoping for more in the series. Yes, there is more.
Sexy Rolf gets his own story and they are all on the path on the sorcerer behind a curse.
Next book is called, The Changeling Curse.
Raises eyebrows, once, then twice. It will be hot and will have more werewolves.
Also, there will be a print version. It’s on my to do list. I should request the cover flats. That will get the ball rolling.
Thank you lovely reviewer for leaving a review. I can party the rest of the day away.
By the way there is a special coming up this month. Stay tuned or sign up to the newsletter to hear all about it. Spiritbound will be 99 cents later this month.

Hot Paranormal Romance!
Asleep in bed, widow Annwyn dreams about making love with her dearly departed husband and wakes up in another woman’s body. The other woman is Nira, an evil sorceress, who is having sex with Dane, a sorcerer she has cursed. Nira has used Annwyn’s body to escape Dane’s binding spell. Annwyn has to fight her own attraction to the powerful sorcerer Dane and find a way to get her body back. But Dane’s curse is not what it seems. As a werewolf he is consumed by the beast, losing his humanity. If the curse is not removed he will be changed into a mindless wolf forever!
In other news, I will be putting together a print version of the book soon and I have a cover for the next book which I will preview soon.
Earlier this year I got the rights back to The Sorcerer’s Spell. Here’s hoping I can do better getting readers to this book.
This is a sexy paranormal book. It’s hot so if that’s not your cup of tea then this book is not for you.
I’ve coveted a torso on my cover. This isn’t quite the torso I was looking for but the cover has all the elements I was looking for.
Here is the blurb. Here is the cover. Feel free to give me feedback on either. So far the book is only free on Instafreebie (click here). There is an opt in for my Spellcaster newsletter but it’s not required. If you like The Sorcerer’s Spell then save your reviews because it will be on all eretailers soon.
The Sorcerer’s Spell
Hot, sexy paranormal romance!

I can’t believe launch day is finally here.
Invoked is out tomorrow. It’s the last book in the Spellbound in Sydney series.
This was a tough story to write! It nearly got tossed out because it was so hard. But I think it worked out so well so I’m glad I persevered.
The final bewitching story in a trilogy about sexy witches and second chances…
Earl Pressonville knows he made a mistake, but he never expected it to cost him his life. Well, most of his life. Some small part of him survives, but only as a shadow, a thought, a feeling…a purgatory of his own making.
When a young witch, Nea Royston, comes near with her reader sense, something about her gentle touch draws him back to awareness.
But there’s a darkness that’s also returned to Lake Macquarie, one that Earl has dealt with before. Having seen the light that Nea brings to the world, he knows that she will draw the darkness to her, and he vows to protect her at all costs. But Nea is looking for life, for love, for a future, and all Earl can ever offer is a dream.
Warning this book is for lovers of sexy paranormal romance because it gets a bit hot.

Apparently ‘fribble frabble’ has something to do with being drunk. I’m not presently intoxicated. Actually blogging while intoxicated can lead to embarrassing things. I did that once and a politician I mentioned commented on my blog. At the time I was a public servant and nearly cacked myself -being apolitical and all that. I’m no longer a public servant and I’m not going to mention his name because I don’t want him commenting again as he is a twat. But he has been mentioned in relation to a film star.
I’m still working on my fantasy series (Silverlands), the first of which is Argenterra, published under Donna Maree Hanson. I thought the third book was coming along so slowly and crapily but I can say I’m very pleased with the progress now. I’m up to 62,000 words (halfway) and I’m planning to write more today. I’ve had some great ideas and it’s working. I think it’s now in better shape than book 2, which is awaiting a revision after beta reading comments.
I lost the map of Argenterra I had, although it’s not a good map. Some may even say it’s not a map! But now I have to draw a new one and make it make sense and have scale and oh dear god…
I’ve also got to do some sketches for the cover of book two and three for the cover artist that I should have done weeks ago. I was forestalled by the PhD.
I’m expecting the edits for Dani’s Invoked soonish. After that I don’t have too many Dani Kristoff writing plans. I have another book in mind for the Spellbound in Sydney series, but I’m not sure there’s a market for more of them. I have to think up something else if Dani is to have a romance writing career. I have two possible projects. I’ve started Changling Curse which is the sequel to The Sorcerer’s Spell and I also started a contemporary romance that I could put out under Dani’s name. Or hell…I could polish that bloody SF romance Cold Soldier.
What do you know blogging fribble frabble can be useful.Cold Soldier it is.
BTW if you are coming to the RWA conference in August I’ll be there and I’ll be one of the authors signing. I’ve also booked for the ARRA conference in February 2016.
