So great news! I have been working hard on Rise of the Fomori, Faerie Warriors book 2! I actually wrote the last chapter of the book this last week! Now I have to go back and fill in all those parts that I skipped! Haha! But the first draft is coming along, and I hope to start getting the first chapters out to my critique partner and critique groups this coming month! 

Part of writing a believable story is doing research! This can include researching local flora and fauna, locations, weather, making sure travel times feel realistic, etc. But sometimes, you have to go to someone who is an expert in their field. This last week I was able to contact and email interview a local police department in Idaho. One of my characters get arrested in book 2 and I wanted to make sure that the experience feels realistic. 🙂

And even greater news!! One week from today my email subscribers will be receiving their free copy of Feud: Arius’s Story! To be able to receive your own free copy, all you have to do is sign up for my weekly newsletter! I’m almost as excited to share this story with you as I am to share Lies of the Haven! I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from betas and others and I can’t wait to expand the Faerie Warriors world with this great backstory!

Looking for ARC Readers!

Hey all you wonderful people! I am currently searching for ARC readers for my debut novel, Lies of the Haven! What is an ARC reader you ask? ARC stands for Advanced Reader Copy. What happens is, those who would like to be part of my ARC team will be able to download a free copy of my book, Lies of the Haven. In return, you agree to write an honest review of my book!

Reviews are most helpful on Amazon where Lies of the Haven is currently being sold exclusively. The paperback version of my book will be available August 5th and so reviews can be written on Amazon anytime after that date!

Unfortunately, Amazon has some rules about who can leave a review. Family and close friends are not allowed to leave reviews on Amazon. What counts as close friends you ask? That is a good question. For now we will say it is anyone who is friends with my personal account on Facebook :)(My personal page. If you are following just my JA Curtis author page on Facebook, you are fine) However, far be it from me to deny family and friends an opportunity to a free read if they so wish. If you are friends with my personal account on Facebook, and would still like to be part of my ARC team, shoot me a message and we can make it happen in exchange for honest reviews on Goodreads or other forums!

If you still want to help out in the future but the ARC team isn’t for you, no worries! There are still ways you can help out!

Lies of the Haven Cover Reveal!

They came from the Otherworld, living in the seclusion of the mountains. Somehow, they had managed to go undetected, despite their hatred for one another and their powerful faerie guardians occasionally locked in mortal combat…

Fifteen-year-old Mina didn’t ask to become the center of a feud between two tattoo bearing, near immortal brothers and their faerie followers. Nor did she ask to be a faerie for that matter. On the night a dragon sends her grandmother’s home up in flames, everything changes.

Mina is stolen from her human home and forced into a life of lies, monsters, and magic. But as she searches for answers that might end the fighting between the faerie factions, she uncovers an enemy who threatens everything she has begun to care for. In order to expose those plotting against the last remaining faeries, and unite the factions, Mina must leave her human life behind. But none of it will matter if she can’t prove her rightful place among them. And what about those back at home who still need her? Torn between two worlds with the fate of one on her shoulders, Mina must dig deep to find where she truly belongs.

***I’m super excited to be sharing my cover for Lies of the Haven with everyone! This is a dream come true! The ebook will be available for pre-order on August 1st. The paperback will be out on August 15th!

Of course, those who follow my newsletter will get first peek! I can’t wait!

Also check out the cover for the short novel here. It should be out around August/September. Exact date coming soon!

In the meantime, there are a lot of elements that make a good YA fantasy work. While we can all agree that the fantastical is what draws us to the genre in general, I’m curious to find out what other elements of a fantasy story do you find most interesting? Is it fantasy mixed with action/adventure? The world building that enriches the story? Do you like your fantasy mixed with a healthy dose of mystery? Or is it the magical romance that sucks you in?

Great news for you! Lies of the Haven is a great mixture of all of these elements! But let me know in the survey question which one really grabs your interest! You can access the survey page by clicking here.
