FEARLESS – Released Today in the USA

Hi everyone

FEARLESS is available from today in the United States. This means all three books of The Avena Series are now released and available from any good bookshop for you to read. Thank you to Bloomsbury Publishers for their commitment to the series and to their wonderful staff.

Here is a link to What Inspired The Avena Series.

For those of you who haven’t read the series yet, now is great time to pick up all three books for a mega reading session. The books are also available to download as e-books.

I’m often asked what I read for pleasure and if I read a lot of Young Adult books. I will read almost anything, but I am drawn to Historical Fiction, YA and Adult Paranormal and Fantasy, Contemporary Thrillers, especially with a touch of Sci Fi, and Romances with extraordinary heroines and heroes. But what I really need to enjoy my reading for pleasure is TIME. If anyone knows how to slow it down so I can fit more reading for pleasure in my day, please write to me.

I just recently finished reading a Young Adult Paranormal series of books written by Jennifer L. Armentrout, an American best-selling author. They were called The Dark Elements. They began with White Hot Kiss, Stone Cold Touch and Every Last Breath. Here is a link to her website: Jennifer L. Armentrout

I found the Dark Elements Series an unexpected surprise of the best kind. As soon as I finished Book 1, I had to start reading Book 2 as if I were turning the page. The same happened with Book 3, but Every Last Breath was one the most satisfying endings that I’ve read in this genre for a long time. This is YA Paranormal Fantasy at its best. I recommend them for new writers because they are great examples of fast-paced plotting and really well-formed characters.



  1. Congratulations, Marianne! How exciting!

    I have Jennifer Armentrout’s Obsidian on my Kindle—I’ll get a certain little writing challenge out of the way and then reward myself with this story!


  2. Hi Vanessa

    You have Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout on your Kindle, and so do I! After reading her Dark Elements series I downloaded it and I’m looking forward to reading it when I finish the book I’m reading now. That series is being made into a TV series, I believe. Good luck with your current writing challenge.
