10th book birthday celebration




The 10th book celebrations are almost over. Yes, Earth Quarantined is my 10th book published. I’m exhausted because the release party started 3 months ago. And now it’s almost done but it was a lot of fun. I hope you had a fun time too. I didn’t play as many party or game activities as I would have liked, because I ended up busy with running the blog tour and getting the print book ready. 

It came in time for my gathering of friends. Special mentions go out to my Batemans Bay crew who helped me eat the cake – Alicia, Mitch, their son Robbie, Jasmine, Jamie, Barry, Gloria, Donna, and my amazing husband Ian. One highlight of the afternoon was buying a bottle of sparkling wine for S18.50. I’d expected to pay $10 more. I love a bargain. 

Some people couldn’t attend, but they promised they’d catch up with me to purchase their own copy. Of course it will be signed. You know who you are. It’s on its way. 

The blog tour wielded some news subscribers to my newsletter. So yah to me. I’m always happy to pick up some new readers. I’ll send an update email very soon to welcome these new readers. There were giveaways happening around the blog tour, so if you didn’t get a chance to enter, you can sign up to my newsletter to take part in the monthly giftcard giveaway. I do one every month.

Reviews are starting to come in for Earth Quarantined. I didn’t get to send out the Advanced Copies as early as I’d have liked so I didn’t start the release with a blast of reviews. The truth is that I wanted to send out the best version of the book, so I decided it was better to hold off and get those pesky typos fixed so the reviews that came in would be good ones. A special mention to those who’ve reviewed it so far.

Christmas is coming so I’ll be working hard to get my books advertised and into the hands of readers. I’d like to get my store set up on my website too, so I can sell directly to readers. But that might take longer than anticipated. 

In the meantime, if you want to give yourself a Christmas present, Earth Quarantined is available in print and ebook. Or you might like to check out my other books.

You can read my books in this order:

If you like science fiction adventure and serial thrillers:
Earth Quarantined – Earth Quarantined (Book 1)
Welcome to the Apocalypse – Pandora (Book 1)
Welcome to the Apocalypse – CyberNexis (Book 2)
Welcome to the Apocalypse – Primal Scream (Book 3)
Earth Quarantined can be read as a standalone, but Welcome to the Apocalypse needs to be read as a series in order to appreciate the full story.

If you like supernatural thrillers and short reads:
Poison in the Pond – the Shivers Novellas (Vol 1)
Evil in the Embers – the Shivers Novellas (Vol 2)
Danger in the Dirt – the Shivers Novellas (Vol 3)
These can be read in any order but why not start from the beginning.

If you like YA paranormal fiction and stories with heart:

The Bird with the Broken Wing
Resident Spy
One Little Spell
These are all standalone titles. But if you’re looking for an order to read, go in the order listed.

What’s next for me? I have two more books in the Earth Quarantined series coming, plus anoter title in the Shivers Novellas. Plus I’ll turning my 2017 NaNoWriMo project and turning it into a paranormal murder mystery.

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

The Bird With The Broken Wing by D L Richardson ebook now $2.99

Welcome Latest news!!! What a surprise it was for me to check in on my online retail sites and discover some good news about my debut novel The Bird With The Broken Wing . I regularly do this to make sure links are working and what not. Anyway, I checked in and discovered that my publisher has reduced the ebook price to $2.99 USD. This is great news, because many ebooks are set at this price point and I've often thought that maybe this deterred buyers rather than attract them, which is the essence of selling. you can read reviews for this YA fantasy novel on author website Author's description of the book: "The Bird With the Broken Wing is a tale about a guardian angel who ends up in Purgatory with the mortal she was assigned to watch over. While working on getting her mortal out of Purgatory she discovers some disturbing news about her presence there." Things about this book you did not know , as told by the author D L Richardson : "This was ori

Science fiction predicts...

It started out as a discussion group on Amazon. "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" I asked this question and received so many great recommendations for books to read. Why did I ask this question in the first place? Because I'm writing two different sci-fi apocalyptic novels at the moment, and I really wanted to know that I had an audience. A writer's worst nightmare is to write a book that nobody wants to read. Yet, often its a case of nobody being able to find your book in the highway jam that is the internet. THE VIRTUAL WATER COOLER Everyone will tell you that word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book. The industry is clogged with books. Just like the highway, the jam is full of good cars and bad cars, and the online book industry is the same. Asking a question like "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" on an Amazon discussion group was the best way for me to get a list of books to purchase. This is the word of mouth that advertis
