My friend and fellow author Kayla Curry is releasing a new book this week called Where the Carnies Are. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited to discover what people with special abilities inhabit her world.
Where the Carnies Are
Olive is having a very bad day. She caught her boyfriend cheating on her, she lost her job, and she stumbled into a portal leading to a secret carnival kingdom which she can’t escape. The good news is she meets an eccentric, but stunningly handsome knife thrower. The bad news is she can’t go home for another two months.
The world she lands in is full of sideshow characters, terrifying amusement rides and her biological parents’ past. She was born a carny, but raised as a normal human. Magic lives in her blood, but it hasn’t reached her heart. To find out who she really is, and why carnies are disappearing, Olive must deceive the king with the help of Alex the knife thrower.
Olive and Alex play a dangerous game with their emotions when they decide to have a fling during Olive’s stay. They both lead very different lives and being together would mean one of them giving up the life they’ve always known.
Tricks and traps are around every corner in this kingdom. Few can be trusted and Olive will need all the help she can get to make it through unscathed.
About Kayla Curry
Writing has been part of her life since the beginning of high school. She was on the school paper for three years until her graduation in 2006. Journalism was an important part of learning who she was as a writer, but ultimately, Kayla’s creativity won over and she decided to write fiction short stories in her free time.
Kayla finished her first full-length novel in 2011, and was published in 2012. Since then, she has been writing as much as possible and enjoys being a work-from-home mom.
