Our very first 2017 release, and it’s a JOURNAL!!!

Good day everyone,

Oh man are we excited for 2017. This year is filled with changes, scary ones and exciting ones, but changes we have to make so we can grow forward. Very please to announced that we finally have an USA distributor to distribute all our novels into all the stores (if they’ll have us) shelves. So excited about that one, and we have our first 2017 hot new release which is a Journal, and not any Journal, the Journal of Blake Leaf. It’s part of the Dragonian series, and if you have no idea who Blake Leaf is, well, I suggest you go and purchase the Dragonian Series and find out.

blakes-journal-epubHis Journal is filled with his darkest secrets and the fun part of it all was that Adrienne didn’t write this one alone. She had the help of Poets from all over, but end up mostly co-writing this one with Local author, Lea Cherry.

“Lea just captured Blake’s soul so beautiful and even brought my inner poet forward in times I really needed to write something no one else but me could write. Still, she perfected my poems too,” was Adrienne’s reply when asking why she co-written this journal and not any of the other novels.


15595886_1277129619020822_1341509556_oWhat you didn’t know is that Lea is already and FQP author, she loves the co-author thing, and hopefully one day will solely written a novel just for us. She has written a children’s novel with Zandre Du Preez, Lumin finds a Lighthouse, under her real name, Leandri Geldenhuys.

The fun thing about this journal is that it doesn’t just belong to one of our beloved, bad boy characters, but that there seem to be many empty pages unwritten for you to use as either a journal, or to write your own ideas for stories.

Adrienne and Lea is busy taking orders for custom made journals, meaning that it’s going to look exactly like the paperback, but with a real leather journal, a replica of the paperback that will come in a very special box with real newspaper clippings, origami birds, and love notes that we just couldn’t get into the paperback as we would’ve wanted.

So look out for their order form coming soon.

Hope you are going to enjoy this one. Loads of work went into it and loads of love.

Till later,

FQP Team

Fire Quill Publishing Presents: Cover reveal for Just Off The Path by Weston Sullivan

Today we at FQP are super excited to finally reveal the beautiful cover of one of our upcoming novels, Just Off The Path, written by Weston Sullivan. If you love fairy tales as much as we do, then this retelling with a dark twist is just the story you must add on to your TBR pile.

For weeks we have only shown you this pic, and for good reason, to make you just as excited as we were during creation of this beauty.

just-off-the-pathcrThis is what we call a cover place holder. Whenever we do cover reveals and want to post something before time, well, you will either see this one here, with some of the actual cover part showing through, or our other one, which is the exact same just in white.

If you look closely you can seriously see some of Just Off the Path’s cover showing through.

But yes, this place holder was all we could show, but today is the revealing of JUST OFF THE PATH’S FULL COVER.


Title: Just Off The Path
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing
Cover Artist: Joemel Requeza and Sandra Valente



Book Description:

Hansel never asked to be a hero. He never wanted to fall in love with Rapunzel, Queen of the East. He didn’t ask to be raised by Gothel the Wretch, and he certainly never wanted to be credited for her arrest. But more than any of that, Hansel never wanted to lie: but he did. He lied about everything. He thought that he was done with it all when he and his sister Gretel retreated into the woods to reclaim their land, but he should have known better.

Years later, Rapunzel’s guards knock at his door, and they say the words he hoped that he would never hear: Gothel has escaped. As he and Gretel take refuge inside Rapunzel’s castle in the eastern capitol of Hildebrand, Hansel is thrust back into everything he never wanted in the first place: his lies, his legend, and his lust. In the wake of it all, he knows that Gothel has escaped to finish what she started. She is out to make sure that the Sleeping Beauty never wakes, and that Grimm suffocates under her blanket of thorn and vine. In order to find Gothel and save the kingdom, Hansel and Gretel must look for fact in a land of fairy-tale by following a trail of grisly murders, a girl in a red cape, and a powerful little man who can’t stand the sound of his own name.

As they search for answers, Hansel finds that he isn’t the only liar in Grimm, and that there may be a traitor among them of royal proportion.

Cover revamps

Here at FQP we are always open minded.

Going through life, fighting against everything, is no way of moving forward. So when we feel that something might not be working, we change.

Yip, even though covers were gorgeous, we changed because of various reasons. So today I’m extremely honoured in revealing those changed.

Two authors went through complete cover change. Their covers, although beautiful, wasn’t the right fit for YA. So we change them.

Hope you love ’em as we sure do.

Cover reveal for It Had To Be You by Melissa Kate

Good day to all the FQP readers,

So today I am so excited to reveal one of my favorite stories, It Had To Be You, written by Melissa Kate, a true South African. This story has the potential to make it big. And I mean big. I haven’t giggled and fall in love with characters like Emma and Oliver, for a long time.

They are so real that it feels as if I could have had a pastry at Emma’s bakery and swear that I must have seen Oliver somewhere, keeping the law, and drool just a bit.

We don’t have a publication date yet, all we know it’s scheduled for 2017 and we are in the first print run for upcoming reviews etc. What we can show you tonight is…..the beautiful cover. Our designers are from all over the world and this one created by Amy is one that blew me away. It literally took my breath away and hope you would like it too.

Emma Wyatt has had enough of her ex best friend and his lady killer ways. Gone was the sweet boy of her youth and in rides the womaniser. But this time he has ready gone and done it!

Oliver didn’t expect to be coupled with Emma. She was in an awkward situation and he couldn’t help the words that came out. She should be grateful, he saved her.

Now the whole town knows. And Emma is pissed! She’s going to kill him.

But a heated argument leads to a fiery moment of passion and suddenly the two are fighting an unlikely attraction that neither saw coming. But Oliver has a secret that could tear them apart…
Our interior has been just as beautiful as the cover and cannot wait to finally get that final proof in my hands later today.

An edgy romantic suspense novel written by award wining YA author Carlyle Labuschagne as Bailey Quinn 



THE MOMENT DETECTIVE SCARLET ANNE MARTINS stepped into that prison, her resolve began to wane, a struggle she had long forgotten between heart and head. Unable to deny it any longer, the feelings she had for Alaric were strong—and her desperation to save him, would ultimately be what would killed them both.
For a super cop, her judgment in men truly failed her. But while her life, and anyone’s who tried to stop her was in mortal danger, she had to forget every single detail about Special Agent Blade. Her primary focus was getting through the next twenty-four hours without killing anyone.
Thereafter, her purpose would be to find a way to put behind bars those who were framing her for murder, and the bombing in New York City. It would prove to be an almost impossible task, since she had become a fugitive in a foreign country.
This time, her drop-dead gorgeous looks and South African accent would work against her in every way—she would be recognized in a heartbeat on the streets. With nowhere to run, she made the decision to face the peril head on and ensnare the evil that was coming for her, and the only way to do that was by giving them what they wanted.

Happy Bookday Moonbeam

TBA 2016

Fire Quill Publishing is here to welcome our newest addition of novels to our family. Moonbeam, written by Adrienne Woods is finally here. The pre-order phase went beautiful and will definitely try it again in the near future with some of our upcoming novels.

What is Moonbeam about?

Moonbeam follows Blake and Elena eight years into the future, or where Starlight has ended. When we asked Adrienne what her inspiration was behind Moonbeam, she answered with ease.

“I always wondered what The Dragonian Series would’ve been like if the Royals knew who was going to betray them before the time, and what would our main characters life have been. Yes, I know there wouldn’t have been a Dragonian Series, but I still wondered, and that was how Moonbeam come to life. Elena and Blake are different and yet still the same in so many different ways, but it’s still one of my favourite novels to write.”

So there you have it. Moonbeam is all about Elena’s life and how it would’ve been different if she grew up, not just for her but for the Rubicon as well.

I truly hope that all of you are going to love this one as much as we do here at FQP.

Moonbeam is available on all the online stores right at this very moment. So if you haven’t ordered your copy yet while it was on pre-order, do so right now.

Till another day,


So excited to announce our newest author MELISSA KATE!!!

20160522_184850A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Monique, saying that I MUST READ this manuscript. It is laugh out loud funny and everything a great novel should have. She send me a novel written by Melissa Kate.

I was hooked from page one. It is definitely by far everything a rom-com should have and I am super excited to share with you the details of our newest author.

Melissa Kate is a self confessed book-a-holic who lives in a small town along the coast of Sunny South Africa. She writes contemporary romance with quirky characters and witty banter; a true romantic at heart, she loves the moment of falling in love. Her pet Beagle and maniacal lovebird keep her company while writing and often inspire senseless moments in her stories.

When she is not furiously tapping away on her laptop. Melissa can be found getting up to crazy antics with her husband or soaring online stores for additions to her ever growing stiletto collection.

She balances her day job and conjuring up new romantic tales with a local personal blog with arb ramblings about her life in Durban. Perusing all things Chris Hemsworthy also takes up a great deal of her time. A true foodie at heart, nothing makes her day quite like a decadent dessert. CHOCOLATE SOLVES EVERYTHING.

You can read more about Melissa at www.melissakatebooks.com

I can’t seriously wait to share with you her upcoming release. Don’t miss out on Melissa’s cover reveal for It Had To Be You, coming soon.

Till next time.








Hinder: A Benders Novel

We are so proud to reveal the gorgeous cover, created by Joemel Requeza, for Hinder: A Benders Novel. It’s the first of the Guardian of Monsters Series and publication date is set for 2017. When? We have no idea yet. It is the Debut Novel of Kristin Ping, you can find more about her on our author page, and she strictly writes NA/Paranormal, as most of her novels leans over to the adult side, meaning hot steamy,….you get my point.




Titel: Hinder: A Benders Novel
Series: Guardian of Monsters
Genre: Paranormal
Author: Kristin Ping
Publication Date: 2017
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing

Back Blurb

Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

Don’t miss out on this action-packed debut novel by Kristin Ping, coming in 2017.

Bailey Quinn is a pen name Carlyle Labuschagne writes her crime fiction under, she is an South African award wining author, with a flair for mixing genres and adding loads of drama to every story she creates. For now she is happy to take over the world and convert non Sci-fi believers.
Her goal as an author is to touch people’s lives, and help others love their differences and one another by delivering strong messages of faith, love and hope within each world she writes about.

“I love to swim, fight for the trees, and am a food lover who is driven by my passion for life. I dream that one day my stories will change the lives of countless teenagers and have them obsess over the world literacy can offer them instead of worrying about fitting in. Never sacrifice who you are, its in the dark times that the light comes to life.”

Carlyle used writing as a healing tool and that is why she started her very own writers support event – SAIR – “To be a helping hand for those who strive to become full times writers, editors, bloggers, readers and cover artists – its a crazy world out there you dont have to go it alone!”
