Dark HaloGood morning friends!

I’ve just finished going through the typeset pages for Dark Halo.

I have to tell you, there is something so satisfying about ending a story just where you wanted to end it, and I’m grateful Thomas Nelson gave me the opportunity to share Brielle’s journey with you all. Not too much longer, you guys. August 20th!

BUT, before I send these pages off, I thought I’d share a little teaser. That sound fun?

And since we’re here, all of us, hanging out, we might as well do a giveaway, right?

How about a signed copy of Broken Wings and a snazzy Broken Wings poster? Let’s keep it simple this time. Leave a comment on this post and I’ll choose one lucky winner on Monday, 4/8.

Broken Wings and poster


And now for the teaser….


Both Angel Eyes and Broken Wings have three narrators and Dark Halo is the same. Want to see whose eyes you’ll be looking through as the trilogy comes to a close?

    Ahhh!!! I am so excited!! This is why i try to avoid these things because I still have to wait until August! But I just can’t help myself! In the mean time I will re-read the first two!

    Oh my goodness, I can’t wait for August. I’ve never looked forward to fall so much! I’m guessing that we’ll end with Brielle. It will be interesting to see what part Marco plays in this one. Come on August! I need to see what’s going to happen to my favourite characters!!

    Wahoooo!!!!!! Cannot wait to read both of these! Angel eyes was absolutely fantastic. Thank you for writing these books they are truly inspiring! Also I think that the cover for Dark Halo is the coolest. Thanks again!!

    I already have the countdown going on my calendar!! Only 139 days!!! I remember when I got the first book and finished it in two days…needless to say I didn’t get much sleep. The day after I had a countdown to Broken Wings. I read Broken wings in two days also! I am very curious to see Marco’s view of things. I also love how we get to see the main characters point of view instead of it being just one person guessing what other people think. I am very excited Jake is one of the narrators again, I really enjoy seeing what he thinks and the decisions he has to make. I just want to say thank you for writing these books, not only have you given me a great read, but a better relationship with Christ. Thank you.

    Wow, Marco was a fun surprise!! Can’t wait to see what God has in store for him. And…..the ring WILL reappear, won’t it?!!

    Angel Eyes was amazing and I still have to read Broken Wings but I’m excited!!! It looks really cool!

    Sitting on pins and needles waiting for Dark Halo! I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the first two books, reading them each in less than two days. Thank you for following God’s plan for your life!

  • Comment by Carol — April 2, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

    YEAH! I cannot wait to read it! I want to know what happens to all these great characters. 🙂

  • Comment by Carol — April 2, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

    I love this series! I can’t wait to read the last one.

  • Comment by Julia Rose — April 3, 2013 @ 6:12 am

    I love this series so much!! I am so sad that this is the last one 🙁 Though I am sure that it will be a great ending…I really hope the ring reappears. When I read that the ring disappeared in Angel Eyes I literally freaked out!! I just had to remember that it is just a book…I am also really curious with what is going to happen to Olivia , I hope Keith sees that she is not the one for him!! I really like Kaylee because I have a friend just like her! Thank you for writing these books they are wonderful and I am sure Dark Halo will be too!!!

    Wow!! So excited!! I’m gonna have to finish my math so that I can properly enjoy this amazing series!! It’s so touching to read a book series when you’ve talked to the awesome and goofy author of these books! Thanks Mrs. Dittemore for writing these books for us!!
    God bless you and your family!

    I have been so anxious to read this series as I have heard such good things about it!! I can’t wait to dive into it sometime soon hopefully!

    Congratulations on being finished with your novel. The covers of each book are fascinating and beautiful. I would love a chance to win your book. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  • Comment by Celeste Holloway — April 3, 2013 @ 5:53 pm

    Awesome! I’ve been taking BW slow, but I don’t think I can keep the pace because I’m into the really mysterious part now. To show you how snail-like I’ve been…I’m freaking out about Briell’s dad, hearing noises and Jake, too. Now I have to know who took her! 🙂

  • Comment by Tonia Gaston — April 4, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

    Just finished reading Broken Wings and really enjoyed it. Enjoyed it just as much as I did Angel Eyes. And now I am looking forward to Dark Halo!

    Thank you Shannon Dittemore for bringing us this excellent story!

    You guys!

    Okay, first, I have the worst comment section ever. I can’t figure out how to respond to each of you individually, but I so want to. I’m honored that you would take time out of your lives to step into my imagination for a little bit. It’s humbling and I hope you know how grateful I am. THANK YOU for your kind words.

    If you’re not following me on FB, I’m really active there and would love to chat it up with you all. FB has its drawbacks but communicating there is tons easier than here in my silly comments section. I really need to figure this out.

    Love these books!

  • Comment by Sky — April 5, 2013 @ 5:57 pm

    I’m very new to you and your writing, but I actually found out about you through the Go Teen Writers site and FB group. Broken Wings sounds so interesting and I really want to read it. I looked it up at my library but my library doesn’t have it ( 🙁 ), so winning this giveaway would be FANTASTIC. I’m looking forward to reading your books, however and whenever it happens to be! 😀

    Crossing my fingers,
    — Sky

    P.S. — one of my novels is actually named Broken Wings, too. 😉 It’s a great title. 😉

    Hi I just want to say thank you for writing these amazing books! It takes alot of talent to write books, I would know. I tried writing books but was not very good at it. I have time though because I am only 14. Anyways, thank you for following your dreams and the path that God has set out for you! Good luck with figuring the blog thing out! There sure are alot of Julia’s in this contest…well only three.Sorry I tend to babble a lot.. I am very excited to see what Dark Halo will bring to the trilogy!!
    May God bless you for all your hard work. 🙂
