Night Terrors

Night Terrors
Magic has a cost. Sarah Beauhall, blacksmith and dragon slayer doesn't know just how high. Her lover, Katie Cornett, has finally been overwhelmed by this spiraling cost and her spirit is blasted from her body and flung into a world of nightmares and monsters. As Katie's coma deepens and her chances of survival fade, Sarah's spirit must make a journey of its own through a world of crystalline eaters and malevolent spirits who exist only to hunt and to consume. Night after night Sarah delves beyond the hidden paths, going from crystalline landscapes into the wild lands and lost worlds far beyond the great sea of dreams. When the spirit of a long dead murderer--known only as the Bowler Hat man--begins gathering an army in the forgotten lands, Sarah discovers that more than eaters and feeders pursue her.

About the Author
John "J.A." Pitts

John "J.A." Pitts learned to love science fiction at the knee of his grandmother, listening to her read authors like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard during his childhood in Kentucky. His favorite place in the whole wide world was the library where he could become so lost in story that he didn't want to ever leave. He still lives his life surrounded by books and story. A collector of myths and legends, John relishes the moment when an audience gasps or cries, laughs or winces at a particularly vivid tale. Selling his own tales still comes as a surprise to him.

The first three books in the Sarah Beauhall urban fantasy series--Black Blade Blues (2010), Honeyed Words (2011), Forged in Fire (2012)--are published by Tor. The fourth book, Night Terrors (2016), is published by Wordfire Press. His first short story collection, Bravado's House of Blues, came out in 2013 from Fairwood Press.

John has a BA in English and a Masters of Library Science from University of Kentucky. He is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and the Dark Forces Defense League.
