Great! You have a couple of options then, all on my store:

There’s lots of Fan/Artist Terah Edun Merch which you can buy and support a small artist! Or you can get the Courtlight Support Pack with a T-Shirt, Signed Paperback of Sworn To Raise, Buttons, Sticker Sheet, Bookmarks, and a Algardis Satin Bag all for $9.99!

Honestly, I have bad news for you. I published 1 Crown Service title and 3 Courtlight titles out of my own pocket in audio. I discovered I was rubbish at overseeing narration and after spending a fair amount of time and money on the first four audiobooks, I’d much prefer writing the next books for you. I can tell you that the book rights are available if an audio publisher wants them though, my inbox is open to offers!


Absolutely! The Courtlight series is already available in over a hundred libraries in over thirty U.S. states and seven countries. New ones are processing each and every day. Through a partnership with OverDrive, 3M Cloud Library, Ingram and EBSCO you can also add these books to your classroom, library, and independent bookstore collection by clicking here.

Note that if you’re a reader who loves hardcovers: you can check out the book off the shelves from one of dozens of libraries here.

Share this link with your librarians to have them purchase a set in eBook and Hardback:

I get this question all the time and I’m happy to personally speak to each and every parent or teacher or librarian to assure them that my books are geared towards a young adult audience and appropriate (I hope) for most young adult/teen readers. It’s aimed to be a compelling read for all ages with no graphic sexual content or gratuitous cursing. If you need comparisons, then Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and Divergent by Veronica Roth will give you an idea of the content style.

High Fantasy:

Courtlight Series – A Weathervane who gets into a ton of trouble with her friends and family by her side as she fights to do what’s right

Crown Service Series – A Battle Mage searching for the truth about her father’s death amidst the fight to defend an empire torn apart by civil war

Urban Fantasy:

Sarath Web Series – A young witch with the power to call upon the fae and gifts that will enable her to assume the throne of the Atlanta High Queen.

What’s this? Urban Fantasy? o.O

As a teen I read everything high fantasy, magical book I could get my hands on, but I also was a big fan of urban fantasy. I read authors like Laurell K. Hamilton, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan, and Kim Harrison. From those authors came my fascination with mixing reality and fantasy with really awesome female protagonists leading the charge. I like to think of my YA Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance as a mixture of the elements from high fantasy (coming of age, quests, bonds, and extreme magic) with the components of urban fantasy (modern world, heroic female, and devil-may-care attitude).

I write Young Adult fiction. Always. Why? Because I believe the teenage and young adult experience is powerful. My characters range in age from 15-18 (so far) but they are always going to be set in a uniquely coming of age realm of experience. Everything else, whether it’s high fantasy or urban fantasy, is my lens for examining that experience.

The Courtlight series and the Crown Service series are both set in the Algardis Universe. Crown Service starts three centuries before the beginning of the Courtlight series. In the second century of the Algardis empire, the land is fractured into principalities and fiefdoms. The mages are in control and different factions within them go to war, a civil war that lasted off-and-on for one hundred years.
