Want a free book?

Yes? I thought so. If you have read Rift in the Deepyou might have been left with questions. And if you haven’t read it (why not!? Just kidding. Kind of) then you’re in luck. You don’t have to have read it to enjoy this FREE (yes, free) eBook novella.


Introducing The Tale of Briton’s Fury. A free novella available now. Check out the blurb below, and dive into a Steward Saga story unlike any other.

A dangerous warlock. A beautiful stranger. Three Lands amidst the havoc of war. Can two accessors make the difference?

 Briton the Brown is a madman. Or so it would seem. Colin wants nothing more than to hide away at the top of the sphere and live in peace. But with Briton entering the Scrape Lands, the Warlock Council summons him to tell his story. A story that sends shafts of fear through his core just thinking about it. When he travels to Shroud, he encounters a young woman with strange power and sparkling eyes. But does her power control him? Are the feelings that arise really his own?

Tiberius leads the Brotherhood, tasked with recording history and protecting the Jin’tai’s way of life. But when the Warlock Council sought refuge, he couldn’t refuse. And now? Briton invades the peace talks, and he brings chaos with him. There is only one way to protect the Scrape Lands from becoming engulfed in the war that has wreaked havoc through the other Lands. But is the price worth it?

Step into a tale of fury and romance, of friendship and hate, of loss and sorrow. This is the tale that started it all…and that has far reaching effects into the history of the Stewards.

April Promo: Fantasy for Free

fantasy world


I will be running a promotion through my blog for the month of April for those of you, readers AND authors, who love fantasy. Here is how it will work: authors will submit their fantasy novel (any subgenre), as long as it is free, to the promotion. There are only three rules: First, a link must be submitted for the free book, whether through book funnel or any other website you use 2) If you will be using the promo to get more email subscribers, you must at least have 50 in your mailing list, or the equivalent followers of your blog or twitter and 3) you must share the promo on your social media account and to your mailing list. That’s it.

Readers, check out the links and get access to 75 books for free. For some submissions, this might require signing up for authors mailing lists (but seriously, for a free book? And updates on the authors works? Totally worth it. Just saying.)

If you want to participate, shoot me an email at janellegarrettwriter@gmail.com or leave a comment with your email address, and I will send you the link for further info. Happy reading and writing!

It’s That Time



It’s a little strange saying this but…my book is now available in both E-book (also Kindle Unlimited) and print. Really? How is that possible? It’s a bit surreal, to be honest.

Something that only seemed a dim possibility, with months and months of hard work, has become reality. The dream that all writers have…you know the one. Publication. Holding your work in your hands. For indie authors, though, that is just the beginning. Now comes that hard part (at least for me.)

Marketing. Ugh. So with that being said, will you buy it? Write an honest review? Sign up for my email list? Maybe, with a little help from my friends (and readers!) I can hit the #1 spot. For the pre-order, I reached #43 in the Christian fantasy category, and somewhere in the 80’s and 70’s for two other categories. That being said, it’s loosely Christian fantasy, so anyone will enjoy it who enjoys good old epic fantasy. Or just a good story. So help a girl out. Thank you to everyone who has purchased it already. You’re the real heroes *fist bump*

That Moment

Every author knows it. That moment when you know that what you have written, or are going to write, makes the hard work worth it. Sometimes I wonder if we, as a community, band together so easily because we’ve all experienced it. On some level. Whether it’s finishing a manuscript, writing that perfect dialogue exchange, getting that review, or interacting with that reader who loves what you do…that moment.

Remember it. Savor it. Then get back on the writing bandwagon, because there are a thousand reasons not to, but for every moment that pops up to counter those reasons…it makes it worth it.

So raise your glass (or mug…or tankard) and toast yourself, and me, and all those others out there who want their dream to be reality. And don’t stop.


My favorite is pointing out the talent when I come across it. Self-promotion is hard, but promoting others? I love it.

JE Purrazzi and her Malfunction universe…Infraction comes out soon! (e-book). Sign up for my email list to get it for free.

SM Holland and Get In My Head…Sara’s Story is now out in paperback. Her work is needed.

Bonnie Anderson and Always Look For the Magic. The story of her grandfather growing up during the Depression. I’m loving it, and how it takes me back to middle school and devouring every book I could on history.

Debi Walter runs The Romantic Vineyard, and is publishing Cherishing Us: 365 Tips for a Healthy Marriage (e-book and paperback). She also wrote a novel about her grandmother called Through the Eyes of Grace.
