The new editions of The Guardians of Time Series, Books I, II, III and IV, with their exciting new Young Adult Fantasy covers are all now available from online bookstores.
The Named, The Dark, The Key and The Shadow are available in Paperback or E-book from Amazon.com or in English wherever Amazon has a store, which include the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, Australia, Japan, and many other countries. More bookstore are selling the titles as distribution expands.
If you know of any other stores currently selling the new edition, please write to me and let me know so we can let others know, or leave a website link in the comments below. Thank you. I am no longer selling the first “Shadow” cover to avoid confusion and allow the new cover to start appearing on the online bookstore sites. It all takes time.
For Turkey readers, I am now with an agency in Turkey who are acting on my behalf to find a publisher willing to take on the translation and publication not only of The Shadow, the new fourth book of the series, but to reprint the entire series with all new matching covers. Fingers crossed she is able to find us a Turkish publisher soon.
I hope to find other international agencies in other countries willing to do the same. If you have links to any, for example, in Spain or Germany or Poland, please drop me a line, leave a comment or email me at: email@example.com.
And finally, for those of you asking what I’m doing next: I’m in the editing phase of my new book, a YA Paranormal Fiction. There is lots to know about this new book, but that’s all I can tell you for now except that I’m loving writing it, that it’s a stand alone, and I can’t wait to shop it around for a publisher. Stay tuned because more information is coming soon.
Thanks for reading. Take care everyone.
THE GUARDIANS OF TIME SERIES, BOOK IV
The battle is over. The war is won. The prophecy complete.
But life can’t just pick up where it left off for Ethan. Struggling to cope with the death of his soulmate, at odds with his friends in the Guard, he finds himself adrift, jumping at shadows and sensing someone who can’t possibly be there.
Blaming herself for Lathenia’s death, Jesilla swears to avenge her mother and fulfil her final plans. But she hadn’t planned to fall in love. And that leaves her with an impossible choice – should she follow her heart, or the parental strings of a Goddess short on praise but high on expectation that continues to pull on her from the grave?
The Guard and the Order battle through the past and into an impossible future where darkness lurks at every step.
Released on March 10, 2018, the long-awaited fourth book in The Guardians of Time Series is now available on NetGalley for interested Bloggers to review. Just click on The Shadow cover below for a direct link, and please leave an honest review.
Two years in the planning and twelve in the making, Marianne Curley intended to write the fourth book to The Guardians of Time Series immediately after the release of the The Key in 2004, but that was the same year Marianne was diagnosed with Myelofibrosis, bone marrow cancer, and had to take time off to have a stem-cell, bone marrow transplant. It was eight years before Marianne returned to the publishing world with a new trilogy, inspired by her health experience called The Avena Series. Today, Marianne is fourteen years cancer free, and her new book, The Shadow, fulfils a long-awaited promise to both herself and her readers.

I had a lovely surprise today when I was updating and checking on my writing playlists on YouTube and a book trailer appeared in my side feed. All it said was this: “http://www.ravenswood.nsw.edu.au student-made book trailer.” This was accompanied by an image of a girl’s face in black and white. Over the years readers have surprised me with their sometimes extremely moving comments, and such things as dedicated art works, book covers, further chapters, and even complete sequels, as you may remember from one of my past featured blogs. Below is a cover for Old Magic that I love. It has a rich authentic Medieval look. It was designed by Jessica Castillo and the story behind it can be found at Jessica’s page here: Jessica Castillo’s Old Magic Cover
The Hidden book trailer caught my eye and when I viewed it, I couldn’t find the creator’s name other than “RavoLRC”. I would like to let the student who created this trailer know that I love her work and I sincerely hope she received a high mark for it. In case you’re wondering how I know the student was female, it’s because the project was from the school called Ravenswood in New South Wales, an all-girl high school.
If this book trailer of Hidden, Book I of The Avena Series, is your creation, please let me know. I would like to tell you that it was awesome. Click this link to see the Hidden Book Trailer:
As a writer for many years there have been times when I’ve been impressed and humbled by what a reader has told me, shown me, or created in regards to my books and the characters within. It’s an absolute thrill and a truly humbling experience to know that my books have helped people through difficult times in their lives, or started them on their reading journey, moved them to the point of making videos, playlists, designing new covers, writing sequels or scripts, and creating works of art. I’m even thrilled when I see someone who has dyed their hair blue, even though 99.9 percent of the time it wasn’t because they wanted to look like Arkarian in The Guardians of Time!
Zuzana Citovská’s dedicated website Marianne Curley Daily continues to grow and display Zuzana’s many talents. Her love of my books and her interpretation of them using the images she’s put together is a wonderful tribute.
I highlighted Marianne Curley Daily some months back, but when I visited it again recently I knew I had to give it another plug so Zuzaná’s imagery can be seen by many more, as it should be.
Thank you, Zuzaná. Your talent and dedication to my books inspires me.
