Anniversary & Favorite Quote Friday

Happy Friday! I realized today that this week marked the tenth anniversary of the release of my first book, Darkness Dawns: Immortal Guardians Book 1

There are now 10 novels and 2 novellas in my Immortal Guardians series, 2 novels in The Gifted Ones series, and I just released the 2nd book in my exciting new Aldebarian Alliance series. And every story is available in audio format as well. What a wonderful ride it's been. I can't wait to see where the next ten years will take me. :-)

I have been absolutely blown away by your responses to The Segonian. This is the first time one of my books has received over 700 ratings in just the first two weeks of its release. That is amazing!! Thank you so much!

Totally Addicted to Reading gave The Segonian a fantastic review.

Here's another quote from it:

"Spending time with Eliana proved a delightful experience... She was courageous, resourceful, strong, honest, outspoken and knows how to roll with the punches. Several times throughout the story she had me laughing out loud. I enjoyed her interactions with Dagon and his crew members."

Flora's Musings gave it a wonderful review, too. 

Here's another quote from it:

"A Stellar Adventure In This Sci-fi Romance Series. 
I’m already a big fan of Dianne Duvall’s books but sci-fi is not my usual reading genre. However, I love Dianne’s writing style, the language she uses and the way she paces her plots.
I was drawn into this story and remained hooked throughout.

What Readers are Saying

Thank you, everyone who has taken the time to rate/review The Segonian. I know I've said this many, many times, but I love seeing that I've made fellow readers happy. Here are some of the latest that caught my eye:

"Sci-fi is typically not a genre of choice for me, but as The Segonian unfolded, I found myself more and more enveloped in this world. I am definitely eager for the next installment of the Aldebarian Alliance... No matter print or audio, The Segonian by Dianne Duvall is an excellent sci-fi fantasy romance."

"Awesome... I’ve already read this book twice! Eliana is a great character, she is adorable and fiesty. Dagon is a perfect commander and love interest."
Priscilla Flores

"An out of this world, fantastic tale, by one of my favorite authors. She made me laugh & made me cry while also keeping me in suspense. Who could ask for more? I believe this story has become my all-time favorite of all novels by Dianne Duvall...Buy it! Read it! You'll LOVE it!"

"Great story. Full of strong heroes and heroines who also have a soft side. Creative and humorous. Cannot wait for the next book."
Georgeanne Henkel

"Yes! This is my type of science fiction romance! Action, action, humor, and some love. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’• This has been a thrilling and exciting adventure! Geez! All the different feelings!... This is an exemplary novel. The five star ๐ŸŒŸ rating system is too low. When it comes to science fiction and romance, Dianne Duvall is the best!"

"All my favorite genres in one amazing series. I laugh out loud and can't turn pages fast enough. The Segonian did not disappoint. The next book can't come fast enough."

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I would share a moment of levity in an action-packed scene from The Segonian:

She raced for the closed door that led to the rest of the ship, trusting Dagon and the guys to take out whoever was left.


“Grenade, Eliana,” Dagon warned, his voice coming over the comm seconds before an e-grenade sailed past her shoulder.


It detonated as it hit the door.


Flames and sparks and hot air rushed toward her, but didn’t slow her at all as the grenade he’d lobbed blasted a substantial hole in the door.


“Thanks, babe,” she called as she dove through it.


A throat cleared. “Did she just call our commander babe?”


“Shut up,” Dagon retorted.


She laughed. “Would you like me to call him sugarboo instead?”

Srul, yes,” Maarev responded as snickers carried over the comm.


Thank you for making my first ten years as a published author so amazing. Medieval Romance, Time-Travel Romance, Paranormal Romance, and Sci-Fi Romance... I'm having so much fun!

Take care and happy reading!
