ThousandEyesBook Description:

Be prepared to immerse your self in a world where falling in love could cost you your life and nothing is as it seems.

Innovera Yakov – The Journey of A Thousand Eyes is the first installment in an action-packed fantasy drama where characters with powers of healing and destruction live, love, compete and disappear without a trace while they are being prepared for the Journey.

What is the Journey? What happens to the ones who do not return? What unspeakable, stomach-

churning things can happen to them there?

Even Ayana the Great Healer, Krave ‘The Golden One’ and the powerful Blu Tara are terrified of it.

Interview with Kia:

1: Why should we read your book?

Apart from being an action-packed, romantic adventure, Innovera Yakov: The Journey of A Thousand Eyes is a story about the power of love and loyalty. It is about the desire to become stronger, better beings, and the need to accept yourself and to embrace your strengths and talents in order to make the most of the gift of life. It is what most readers talk to me about when they’ve finished reading it. Some of them have even thanked me.

I think there is something for everyone in the novel: adventure, romance and valuable life-lessons.

2: What was your favourite chapter or part to write?

Visualising the world my characters live in. I love mind-mapping that world and thinking of the possible dangers of falling in love in that world, including the terrible jealousies and rivalries that threaten to destroy the ones involved.

3: Do you have any pre-writing rituals to help you prepare for writing different scenes and getting into a character’s mind.

I always write after midnight – around 2 or 3 am – when it is very quiet outside and I imagine that everyone else is asleep. My impulse to write and dream up worlds comes alive around that time.

4: What is next for your writing?

I am working on the second book in the series and I already have ideas for the third and fourth novel.

5: Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

Follow your dreams. Work for what you want and even in the depths of despair or fading confidence never give up. It is important to believe in yourself because not everyone is going to believe in you. Embrace your gifts. Learn what they are and use them for good. Cherish what you are and don’t let go of that.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

    • Start off with a free platform, you can do so much! The paid option is probably best to think about after you’ve been blogging for a while, you don’t want to pay for soemthing and then decide it’s not worth it. Keep writing! Never forget why you started, (as corny as it sounds) 😛 Thanks for the comment! If you need any other help just ask 🙂
