Extra Extra! The Descent is a Horrorific Good Read

Genre poetry, especially The Descent's: darker breed of poetry, is often overlooked by poetry lovers. This Autumn Cider Seasonal Reads staple here on Undawnted is a great way to vibe with the change of seasons.

On Writing to be Read's Treasuring Poetry column by Robbie Cheadle, she not only delves into my Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, paranormal inspired chapbook, but she enjoyed it as well.

Treasuring Poetry, 2024: Introducing the poetry of DL Mullan and a review is available to read. In this interview, I discuss my inspiration and journey into writing poetry. The classics are a beautiful influence and help me ground my creative pieces. My interview also exhibits three poems from other chapbooks. Transcendence is in my upcoming Impetus. The Flower Within lives in Effloresce, which is being expanded for a future release. Weather and Asymptote reside in Phantastic.

I hope poetry lovers read my upcoming chapbooks as I re-release these poetry books from one platform onto another. This year, I plan on publishing at least two chapbooks, Eclipse being one of them. I cannot wait to share my lyrical visions with an expanded audience. 

My Long Form Poetry will be published in an upcoming collection, but most individual poems are available in my Special Editions Store.

Thanks again, Robbie Cheadle, for your kindness and review of my poetry.


DL Mullan has been writing award-level poetry for thirty years. Recently, she has showcased her literary talents by self-publishing several collections of her poetry.

Autumn Cider 2023's Harvest is about Transforming into the Unknown

As part of Undawnted's seasonal reads programming series, the Hero's Journey is traced through the quarters.

For Autumn Cider, the path leads us to transformation. We are led from the comfortable, mortal world and into the precarious, supernatural realm. What we know becomes the unknown. In this newfound reality, we venture into the underworld for our final challenge that gives us the elixir to set the wrongs right again. 
What will you learn on this quest? Who will you become? Transform into the person you can be by discovering the hero within with Undawnted. 

Enjoy our stories from poetry to prose, such as:

You are invited on this journey with us. 

Join Undawnted this season as we walk with the ancestors beyond the veil.

Summer is Coming to a Close

On Undawnted, we follow the meteorological seasons. September 1st, therefore, is the beginning of our Autumn Cider Seasonal Reads programming. The season lasts until November 30th of each year. 

But don't fret, Undawnted is still in the Summer Time swing! 

We have one more publication for this season that has yet to be released: Saint (III) in the Devil You Know. The exciting and heartwarming conclusion to the Saint trilogy. 

This August we have re-released Saint (I) in the Big Easy, published Saint (II) in Communion, and now the last installment will go wide on August 30, 2022.

We are elated to bring you these novelettes! 

This series is tied into Undawnted's Exclusive Legacy Universe. So, there is sure to be some weird and creepy prologues and epilogues to tantalize your senses.

What is next for Eavanlee and Girard? The answers lie in the upcoming Legacy Universe Taskforce Crossovers

Seasonal Outlook for New Opportunities

I wanted something more for Undawnted as to the change of seasons. 

Therefore, I created four different book covers: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. I wanted to jot down how the seasons reflected my inner dialogue. These books will be an amalgamation of art, prose, and poetry. 

If others would like to join this e-book, then I can make an anthology series. I would publish the books under the Sonoran Dawn Studios (my publishing house) banner. If no one joins this unique series, then I will write it off as C'est la vie, such as life. 

Here are the book covers so far. 

If you would like to participate, please drop me a line using the Contact Form.

Have a great and seasonal day!

Amazon Kindle, Here Comes Undawnted's DL Mullan in 2022!

Undawnted is currently moving available titles to a larger platform than Lulu in the coming year.

A few concerns about the current publishing platform have arisen as some readers cannot access, download, titles. In light of this realization, Undawnted will be transferring our publications to this other platform beginning in 2022.

If a title cannot be downloaded during this time, you have our apologies, but we are making strides to have our publications available to a wider range of readers with the ease of accessibility.

Thank you for your patience.

Have a great and wonderful day.

Never Take the Advice of a Person with an American Flag as Their Profile Pic

That response was literally written under a reply I gave in a writer's group.  

A writer wanted to change all her characters from one racial profile to a diverse group of characters. That sentiment is all well and good, but what do you know about other ethnicities? 

Have you researched, interviewed, and experienced that culture?

Since you haven't taken the time to find out that my profile picture is from my genealogical blog: Our Rugged Individualism, where I have denoted family members who have been in the service of the United States in one capacity or another, I seriously doubt you would take the time to do so with someone else.  

For the sake of history, I have an ancestor who came over on the Anne in 1623. Over 397 years has my family been in North America. I have listed him and others in my 1776 Patriot Project after I discovered direct relations to the American Revolutionary War.

But I guess doing genealogical work makes me ineligible to speak about any topic under the sun, not to mention having my family members born under the red, white, and blue since the inception and dedication of our nation. 

That must be enough evidence of my supposed guilt (of what?) to convict me of utter mental incapacity. 

If you feel that people who are patriotic in any way to the United States of America are absurd, then why are you living in the United States of America? 

Asking for a friend. 

To me if you do not like your country and fellow citizens of that country, the question would be: why are you here? and  moreover: why haven't you left? 

There are many nations on this Earth that hate their citizens so much that they put them to work in the fields (Venezuela), kill them for their skin color (South Africa), and place them in death camps for their religious beliefs (China). 

Why not join one of those fun places? Since you are so enthused that you have picked up where Hitler left off... The United States helped defeat the Nazi regime. People forget. 

So if you make fun of people who are Americans, disabled, female, and from survivors of the Bolshevik Revolution (wow! triple minority status), doesn't that make you the bad guy? The intolerant? The bigot? 

Writers cannot have those immature hangups. Writers have to be authentic persons independent of the mindless fads and fixtures that derail our culture from the endless track of possibilities. 

If you do not know a race or its culture, then why are you writing about them? Writers write from what they know. Those are the rules. So if you don't know, you go out and gain experience. In writing, knowledge matters. 

Today's writers ignore simple guidelines. That separates the good, seasoned writers from the unprofessional, immature writers who give other writers a bad name in independent publishing. 

And, the attitude of discrimination means you don't have the aptitude or temperament to be a writer. You're too caught up in what's in to realize that it is already out. 

Real writers and published authors cannot afford to be ignorant, biased totalitarians. That type of behavior is counter to the creative mind. Yet social justice has produced a whole generation of writers who are so intolerant of others in the name of tolerance (ironic) that someone with knowledge and experience is treated as a leper. 

Is that my finger?

Anyway, I wish people would understand how foolish they look when they pull this crap on experienced professionals. Ignorance is a choice. I choose to counter cultural ineptitude by calling it out. 

Get out of your safe space and learn about other people. 

Have a great and wonderful day.

Moving Away from Lulu and Other Fee-Based Platforms

I have been trying to publish my chapbooks and other stories, but fee based platforms have gotten their rules and polices in the way.

That is quite disconcerting. All I want to do is publish my poetry and novels. I didn't believe such actions warranted an IRS form and forced revenue edict. I am disabled. I am not going to make enough to pay taxes on for years.

I am not in the biz to make a landslide. I love to entertain. That's what I do in the creative writing field. I am too ill for book tours or anything else. It's to keep my mind busy while I am stuck most days in bed (22+ hours, most of that is zzzz).

I have loads of experience in various fields as well as a Masters degree in Teaching and Learning with Technology. My website is my stage and my classroom. Anyone who ventures here will receive a first rate creative writing, literature, mythology, and arts education.

So I find the demands of corporations and the IRS just a little comical to say the least. I will have to find a new way of communicating myself to my audience.

I'm taking suggestions.

Habitue did drop today. If you would like a copy, then let me know via my social media page on Facebook and Twitter where this article will be posted. It's a short chapbook with a handful of poems about habit forming behaviors.

Maybe make a donation of a few bucks to help me with my technology expenses? I do everything from scratch these days. So every penny is appreciated. I take Paypal. Maybe that will work...

See, I am still working out the rough patches. 



Being a writer should not take a corporate intervention or demands of the IRS, I should be allowed to be the adult I am. I file my taxes as appropriate. I can do that with a simple printout of what I made between two dates as already available via the Lulu software in my account settings.

I think it's time to rethink the writing business because it's no business of anyone's except my own.

If the IRS disagrees, then maybe it is time to abolish the IRS.

Have a great and wonderful day.

New Server; New Projects; New Year of Reads

As you might have seen, Undawnted was down for a few hours as I got the servers switched over from one company to another. I was with Company X for several years but the prices kept going up and up and up. The customer service was unfriendly and lacking in assistance. So saving 66% with Company Y was a bonus. 

I am working on several projects for this year. I want to publish more chapbooks and other odds and ends so that my Seasonal Reads program has more titles to read. Those hard drive kaputs really set me back. I had three novels near completion. Now, I will have to play some catch up. 

So I know that I am behind, (I should just create and wear the Tshirt), but I am hard at work to get back into publishing mode. Poetry chapbooks will be out for this year. I am working on another project that I will launch soon. Then the hope is to begin publishing my book two's of my series. 

If I can keep from injuries and illness, then I can keep on track for this year. With my recent dizzy/black out spell and foot crunch, I was unable to do much for a couple of weeks. I still have a few more weeks of rest and healing but at least now I am not so tired and out of sorts. 

There is nothing like cranky creativity. You have negative energy fueling your exploits but those projects usually get trashed because their energy is so dissatisfying. 

I am really glad I published Turquoise before I got laid up. The energy is positive. The message is positive. The chapbook takes the reader from the lows of love and rejection to self-acceptance. That is satisfying. 

So my 2020 resolution is to get back to the heart of the matter, bring spirit and soul to my projects, and just make this a very productive year.

What are you anticipating? 

Have a great and wonderful day.

The Art of Chapbook Publication

I am asked often how to make a chapbook. 

Here are some simple steps to make a product with a good production value:
  • Use a word processing software program that is compatible with the creation of pdf's. 
  • Structure your chapbook with front matter, content, and back matter.
    • Front Matter should have informative elements for your reader like:
      • Title page
      • Copyright/Publishing page
      • Table of Contents
    • Contents should be in logical/chronological order with numbering
    • Back Matter should have extras for your reader like:
      • Author biography
      • Thank you
      • Dedication (maybe Front Matter for Print books)
      • Publisher's mark
  • Book design cover art to visually explain your poetry with images instead of words with:
    • Title 
    • Tag line, if applicable 
    • Author's (pen) name
The time and dedication to put all these elements together is necessary to give your audience a complete sense of what message, feeling, or thought you wanted to convey to them. 

Many publishers will charge around $1,000 for their time, original art work, and editing services. 

So if you would like me to do a chapbook for you in pdf format with my original design cover art, editing, layout, and internal design services, please note that I charge a fee. 

Anthologies I usually do for free or a reading fee of $1 per poem/microfiction prose piece. Then I will give the anthology out for free for one day and then begin to charge for my time per chapbook sold.

Considering many people do not buy anthologies, I am usually out my time. 

Thems the breaks. 

So if you would like to hire me to do your chapbook under 50 pages including original artwork, front/back matter and contents. Then set a goal of a $250 to $300 budget. That is with the originator handing in a typo free document. 

Since my original cover art starts out at the $200 price point, poets and writer's are really getting a great deal. If you would like to hire me to accomplish a New Year's goal of a publication credit for 2020, then please go over to my Sonoran Dawn Studios social media page and write me a private message

I take Paypal. 

Thank you!

Please be advised that there is a $50 nonrefundable payment due before any work can begin as to safeguard my time creating a cover design mock up for you. Then you can decide after the mock up if you would like to continue, if you do, then $200 of the overall completed chapbook fee will also be nonrefundable. 

It is unfortunate but I have ran into people who want to see the product before payment only to take the work for themselves and leave me without compensation. It does not happen often but now I put in barriers to those individuals who have dishonorable intentions. 

Thank you for your understanding.

1 Year as a Self Published Author

I cannot believe it has been a year! Where has the time gone? 

Last year I wanted to create a legacy for my ancestors. I have met the challenge and surpassed expectations. I have published novels, essays, poetry, and more! 

I cannot wait to continue this journey. 

In 2018, I will take a break but still will publish minimally, in order to learn epub and other platforms to grow my brands: Undawnted and Sonoran Dawn Studios

For 2020 I hope to continue with this successful process. I want enough content to engage, entertain, and inform any reader who so chooses to come along with me. 

Thank you so much for the opportunity to serve humanity by creating a culture point that brings people together through Truth, Justice, and the American way.

Have a great and wonderful day!
