11 months since the publication of STERLING, it's still remains on the Amazon Bestseller list. 1417 people have reviewed these books on Goodreads and 95% like them.


I'm in the middle of a blog tour, so be sure to check it my stops and recommend any ongoing contests to friends and groups who enjoy winning a free book. Check em out.

Book review sites have also been giving Sterling & Twist reviews, and much to my excitement (and relief!) they have all been positive. Here are some examples:

Sterling was stellar from beginning to end. Dark’s characters were witty, sarcastic, and relatable. The plot was completely entrancing, with just the right amount of darkness and romance to balance each other out. I loved it! - 4.5 Stars GraveTells

I have to say that this is one of my top favorite series. Dannika has done a brilliant job at creating the world of the Mageri. - 5 Stars The Book Diaries

This book (Sterling) was amazing! Extremely well written, a completely new world that made sense little by litte, and intriguing and very likeable characters! - 4.5 Stars Unconventional Book Reviews

Ms. Dark did and amazing job with this, her debut novel. I am so impressed with the level of creative thought that went into crafting the world of the Mageri. This is a departure from, vampires, werewolves, zombies and the like. - 5 Stars Pure Textuality

One of the things that I loved about this book is how funny it was. I'm always surprised to have an Urban Fantasy or PNR book to make me laugh. I seriously laughed out loud several times - 4 Skulls Readers Confession

Dannika Dark does it again! TWIST was just as good as STERLING (Mageri Series: Book 1), with a new hero and love interest, ramped up action, and great plot advancement for the series arc. 4 Stars Enter the Portal

Dannika Dark has done it again in this second book, Twist! She has earned a life long fan in me! I'm going to read everything she writes, because I love her writing that much! 5 Stars Book Liasion

The final edit of Impulse, book 3 of the Mageri series. Once that is complete it goes to my editor, and then back for the final cleanup. 
I'm also (as time allows) editing my Novella, Closer.

Yesterday, The final paragraph of the series came to me. I jotted it down on a post-it and I'll copy it over to my laptop later on today. I'm not sure why these thoughts came to me out of the blue, but they felt so right for how things need to wind up. I really enjoy writing the last chapter and I know a lot of readers complain that they read books that feel like the author was in a hurry to end it and they felt slighted. I don't write the ending with that in mind, but a good ending is always important to me because it's the feeling your reader walks away with when they set the book down. I haven't written book five and I'm not entirely sure how things will pan out. I do have some details locked in place, but there's one in particular that's bothering me. It feels like it needs to happen but I'm really struggling with it. I suppose that I'll get to that point when I start writing and make up my mind.

The question I get a lot is: "When is Impulse coming out?" Please check out my blog, my Facebook Timeline cover, and almost every post I write. Fall 2012. :-)

I LOVE MY READERS. You guys are the best support group.
