Interview with Kia Garriques
My name is Kia Garriques and I am author of Innover Yakov- The Journey of a thousand eyes. 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’. Innovera Yakov is a faraway planet in a faraway universe: under five moons and two brilliant suns that never set. At the very edges of Innovera Yakov there is always the terrifying watery darkness of Verheer. We meet Ayana, the outsider, forever searching for herself and the truth of their world; Vinton, her protector. Gamma and Blu Tara are beautiful, fiery twins who can kill with one look. Innovera Yakov: The Journey of a Thousand Eyes explores the desire for acceptance, the need to belong, the importance of self-belief, the danger of secrets, the pain of betrayal and the power of love.

We recently did a free day and I have been receiving lots of emails from readers who say how much reading the book meant to them. Interestingly, its the readers and not the reviewers who gave really hooked onto Innovera Yakov. After reading the book, many have become dedicated fans. And that is wonderful.
