Hidden

Book 1 of The Avena Series

Hidden – Book 1 of The Avena Series

Ebony has always known that she is different. Her violet eyes mark her out, and her protective parents have kept her in a gorgeous valley, home-schooled, safe from everything – almost as if she’s being hidden. But she’s changing: glowing, getting more and more beautiful, and stronger than anyone knows. Ebony can’t stay hidden for ever, and when she meets complicated, intense Jordan, something explodes inside her – something that can be seen from the heavens; something that changes everything. Ebony is a stolen angel, concealed on Earth. Now the heavens have found her, they want her back.

Broken

Book 2 of The Avena Series

Broken, Book 2 of The Avena Series

Following the revelation that Ebony is an angel, and Nathaneal’s narrow victory in battle with Prince Luca, the two are enjoying their newfound love. But Ebony’s friend Jordan is bitterly angry that he has lost the girl of his dreams. Then suddenly Prince Michael arrives to arrest Nathaneal for breaking Avena’s law when he revealed his powers on Earth in his bid to save Ebony from Luca. Nathaneal is forced to return to Avena without Ebony to stand trial. Jordan seizes the opportunity to plant doubt in Ebony’s mind about Nathaneal and her own angelic nature. Desperate to find out what has happened to her adoptive parents, Ebony is persuaded by Jordan to believe that new teacher Mr Xavier, who claims to be her uncle, can introduce her to her real father. Disaster inevitably follows and Ebony finds herself at the centre of another epic battle in the realm of Avena itself. Fantastical and powerfully emotional, this angelic romance series is rapidly winning enthusiastic fans.

Fearless

Fearless Book 3 of The Avena Series

Fearless Book 3 of The Avena Series

Fearless is the final book in The Avena Series, released 1st of July 2015 in Australia/NZ and the UK, and in November, 2015 in the USA.

Ebony and Nathaneal were in love before they were even born. Torn apart and kept in different worlds, will they finally reunite in this exquisite conclusion to Hidden and Broken?

Ebony was kept hidden on Earth for sixteen years, unaware that she was an angel. Unaware that her true soulmate, Nathaneal, was searching for her. Now ready to claim her rightful place with him, in a cruel twist of fate Ebony is captured and imprisoned in a version of hell.

Knowing that Nathaneal will come for her, Ebony is determined to fight against the evil that holds her prisoner. As long as she has Nathaneal’s love, Ebony has nothing to fear. Can Nathaneal break through the gates of hell? Will these long-lost lovers finally reunite and fulfil their destiny?

    one question marianne, books Avena series consists of: Hidden, Broken and Fearless, that I have very clear, but I wonder if it also published the Samandra publisher, since I like to read in Spanish. Ah, wilderness I love your books when I started reading Old Magic I could not separate, further it may sound ridiculous but I felt there was a strong connection between Jarrod Thornton and it started to feel attraction towards him, and go did not help me get over her deep green eyes (I have a weakness for green eyes).
    The same thing happened to me, this sounds even more ridiculous, as I read that Arkarian was sympathetic, sexy and tender me completely forget about Jarrod (Nor helped me too sos colo violet eyes). Well I hope sincerely response and also wait with a yearning The Avena Series books.

    • Hi Daniela, I have a weakness for green eyes too. That’s probably why I have so many green-eyed main characters in my books. Thanks for writing and telling me how much you loved my four books that have been translated into Spanish by Salamandra Publishers. When my new series, starting with Hidden, was published, I had hoped Salamandra would publish it in Spanish, as they had had enormous success with Old Magic, and The Guardians of Time, but unfortunately, that has not been the case and at present I have not received an offer to publish from any Spanish publishers. Hopefully one day Salamandra, or another Spanish publisher, will decide to publish The Avena Series, and I will definitely let all my Spanish-reading fans know! Don’t give up hope. I’m not.

      I wish I had better news regarding a German translation of the Avena Series, but so far no German publisher has decided to translate, not even Hanser, my publisher who had enormous success with Old Magic and the Guardians of Time. I hope that one day I will have better news. When that happens, I will put a GIANT notice up on my website and Facebook page. Thank you for asking. It might be a good idea to drop an email to Hanser or to Bloomsbury UK and ask them if they can make a German translation happen.

    Hi Marianne,

    I started with your guardians of time trilogy and fell in love with your writing style. For weeks I have had dreams of arkarian and his beautiful eyes. I was hooked to your books from the day I started and just can’t wait for more. Old magic was again an exceptional book. When I saw the next trilogy, the avena, I knew I had to read it in a marathon so thought of waiting till fearless came. But couldn’t wait any longer and finished both the first books. Waiting with bated breath for fearless and many more trilogies from you. You rock!

    Ms Curley,

    I want to thank you for writing The Guardians of Time trilogy; it turned up at just the right time and has been a favourite of mine for years now. The complex plot revealed through alternating perspectives captured my interests, and I stormed through the trilogy in less than a week. The voices, in particular, are so rich and personalised.

    I wondered if you had any advice for novice writers? How do you make such complex plot lines seem so effortless? Any advice would be greatly appreciated (and treasured!)

    I wish you every success for your latest book.

    • Hi Marianne
      Thank you for loving my Guardians of Time trilogy, and for letting me know how it turned up at just the right time for you.

      My general advice for novice writers is to read widely and experiment in styles and genres until you find your voice and the genre you are most comfortable to write for. This is important because if you are not loving what you do writing can become hard work and stifle the free-flow of your thoughts. Learning to write can be a long process. I’ve been writing for twenty years and I’m still learning, so don’t wait until you have taken all the writing courses you can find, but start plotting that book you know you have inside you, and write the first draft with the thought that no one will be reading it. Let the words flow from your heart. Say whatever it is you want your characters to say. There will be plenty of time to edit and revise after that first draft is written.

      As for complex plots, I can only speak for myself. I plan my books as much as I can, starting with research. You can find my Writing Process in a blog post on my website using the arrow on left side of the screen.

      All the best for your future success.

    Hi Marianne, I absolutely loved your Guardians of Time trilogy (and this is coming from someone who doesn’t read a lot, so your books must be good). I have a story of my own to tell.

    I first came across the series when I was 12/13 and read through the series with eagerness, but somehow I managed to lose the books (I blame my mum for giving them to the charity shop). In the time that went by, my only memory of the series was the cover of one of the books, but unfortunately I forgot the name. Flash forward to when I was 19 and I had an urge to read the series again, but two summer holidays went by and I couldn’t track the series down. Finally this summer I used all of my brain (and the internet) to find the series and instantly read through the whole series.

    One thing I love is how detailed and vivid your descriptions of the characters and settings are. It meant that the same images I created in my head from your words when I was 12 were replicated exactly now, in a nostalgic sense. I’ve come to terms that a 4th is probably out of the running, but I would love for a film(s) to be made out of the trilogy (and I know I share that thought with others). Have you ever been approached with that idea in mind?

    Thanks very much,
    Nisal from London

    • Hi Nisal

      Thank you for your comments and letting me know how you came about reading the Guardians of Time twice and how you enjoyed the second read in a nostalgic kind of way. To answer some of your questions, firstly, I’ve been approached a couple of times by Hollywood, the first was by the WB (warner bros) to create a TV series. An option was taken out, a director was hired and script writer, but in the end they said the constantly changing sets would prove too costly for their budget at that time. A pilot script was made and it was lovely to visualise these beloved characters coming to life on the screen, but unfortunately it didn’t pan out. The second was to make three major motion pictures. A misunderstanding between my agent and the producer brought an unfortunate end to that option. But I keep hopeful and one never knows. As for a fourth book, well, all going well, I am planning to write it next year.

Arkarian would be amazing to see on the screen. I cried at the ending of the third book…I would be balling at the cinema.

        Unfortunately, though the books have come close to being made into films, and once into a TV series, it has not eventuated yet. But, I never say never. Now that I’m writing Guardians of Time Book Four, all going well, the books may attract the attention of a film producer again one day. Who knows? Making films is not something authors can do on their own. The costs to produce films is astronomical and far out of the reach of most authors, not counting the expertise required.

        Thanks for asking.

    My favourite character is Thane but I do have a soft spot for Ebony because I see nearly all of her personality traits in myself. Your characters are so well developed you would swear that they were real.In class I was particulary annoyed with a certain teacher who kindly reminded me your characters were a work of fiction. I could of screamed at her. But i held my tongue, secretly plotting revenge ( joking).

And I enjoyed writing Ebony for the way she evolved from book to book and how in the final book Fearless, she blossomed into being who she was denied. And also the way she got to remember how much she loved Thane.

The Czech publishers of the Avena Series I believe is Brno : Jota, and they have purchased the rights to publish all three books. It is unfortunately not up to me when they will release them. Book 2 is called Broken in English and Book 3 is Fearless. If you could email the publisher directly and ask them for release dates, you should get the information you seek. Good luck!

        My little sister is enjoying the books the way I’d hoped! It really is amazing how a character can be a friend and a source of wisdom, you learn from their mistakes. You definitely inspired me to write, your words had a different feel to other books that made me want to pick up a pen even in primary school. I must say writing is unlike anything else though, it’s so honest. When putting the story down you feel everything the character does. I remember you telling me you wrote when you were unwell and recently I’ve found myself writing a lot more as I’ve been unwell myself. It’s not just your books that have inspired me but you yourself and the strength that can be found in words.

Of course ADA publishers will have that information, so if there is a way to contact them, maybe by email, or ask at a book store, they might be able to tell you.

    Dear Marianne,

    I feel I have to express something in here, and I do feel a bit ashamed for saying this, but, until I was about 16 years of age (~2001), I did not read much (unless it was for school, and even there it was mostly half-hearted reading, I have to admit that.). At some point I think I accompanied my sister to the book shop and I saw the German version of “Old Magic” in the shelves and immediately felt the need to read it. Well, what can I say? At one point I couldn’t resist any longer and bought it, and it changed my life…

    I really loved your writing style; it was (and still is) very unique. And I really felt I liked the characters… From then on, I became more and more interested in reading, but I will never forget that it was your book which opened this whole new world to me. I am currently reading my second book of yours, the German version of “The Named” from the “Guardians Of Time”. I cannot wait until I can continue on with the rest of the series, I feel the book’s so thrilling and full of great opportunities to dream myself away… It is even hard for me not to go on reading right now, as I totally want to know how it’s going to go on. And I find it spectacular that you are even writing a fourth book for the series🙂.

    So, that said thank you so much for bringing this world to me. I just couldn’t stop myself from letting you know :)! I hope you are having a great day today.

    Dear Marianne,

    I wanted to say thank you for your amazing books.

    I read them the first time when I was still a teenager and remember how hooked I was and how I couldn’t stop thinking about the story when I wasn’t able to read. Your books were one of those kinds, where you couldn’t stop reading and when you finished, you didn’t know what to do with yourself anymore.
    In short: I loved every page and it was almost heartbreaking when I was finished.
    I am 25 years now and I developed a habit to reread my favorite books, which I did with each of yours about 6 times (except your latest trilogy but I’m working on it). Your unique story and writing style inspired me to write myself, if only just for fun (and in a different genre).

    Since the Guardians of time trilogy are my favorite books of yours, I cannot express how happy I am to hear that you are about to extend the series with a fourth book (or maybe even a new trilogy? *hope*), especially since I felt like there was not explained everything in the final third book (e.g. I had the feeling that Dartemis always hinted that there might be more behind Jimmys facade than it seemed; or how live on earth will continue after mixing up the worlds and Matt’s and Dartemis’ role in all of this). It would be even exciting to see Isabell, Ethan & Co. on Tv (even though I’d prefer a TV show over a movie since the story is so complex and versatile to cover everything in a movie).

    Anyway, what I actually wanted to tell you is, please continue writing such wonderful stories and encouraging and inspiring people all around the world to read books and write stories themselves. It is such a great gift you got and you’re making the best out of it. Please stay the way you are.

    Your fan,

      Thank you for your special words to me. I appreciated you telling me how my books, especially the Guardians of Time series has touched your heart and inspired you. It’s readers like you who help me wake up every morning with a smile and enthusiasm for the new day, the day that is full of possibilities (writing ones especially!). I have also always believed there is more to the GoT story than I was able to put into the first three books. In fact, I had always hoped to write a fourth book, but after writing The Key, I became ill with bone marrow cancer and then a fall where I broke several vertebra in my back. It was years later before I could find the concentration to start writing again. I wasn’t ready to return to the GoT then, not until I had proved to myself that my writing was of a publishable standard again. I did that with the Avena Series (Hidden, Broken and Fearless) and now I am excited to be back in Angel Falls with the Named. I am almost finished the second draft of Book Four and will soon be starting to look for a publisher. I will keep you informed through my website blog and Facebook.

      Thanks again for your comments.
