    About " J.A. Pitts "

  • J.A. Pitts

    from author s website I learned to love science fiction at the knee of my grandmother, listening to her read authors like Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E Howard during my childhood in rural Kentucky My life has always been heavily influenced by strong women My mother first among them raising three boys after the death of my father, with grace and wit There were always women coming and going in our house, friends, family, folks who needed a hand, and folks who had one to lend All of my life has been steeped in the stories of average people doing extraordinary things and most of them were women That is why I was drawn to the character Sarah in my new novel She embodies all the strength of the women who have influenced me over the years.I can t remember a time I wasn t absorbing and creating story I read early, and became a regular at my local library There for a while, I thought the coolest thing in the world would be to grow up and be a librarian I even got the degree Once I hit the workforce, I discovered how poorly most librarians are paid, and I ended up in high tech instead.But I live my life surrounded by books and story Selling my own tales still comes as a surprise to me The characters and worlds I build have been given loving care by some pretty spectacular editors I ve been very lucky I continue to launch my words into the world, for all to read if they have the mind I just hope you are entertained in the process The opportunities for you to read my work has just gotten even better.Tor Publishing has agreed to purchase the first three books in my Black Blade series The first BLACK BLADE BLUES comes out in trade paperback and hardback April 27th, 2010.Of course, if you want a sneak peak on the novel, you can read the short story which launched it all in the DAW anthology Swordplay, edited by Denise Little It was released June 2, 2009.My other short fiction can be found in such fine magazines as Fortean Bureau, Talebones magazine issue 36 and forthcoming in issue 39 as well as two additional DAW anthologies Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies Oct 2009 , and The Trouble with Heroes Nov 2009.I have a BA in English and a Masters of Library Science from University of Kentucky In addition, I am a graduate of the Oregon Coast Writers Workshops with Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith When I m not writing, you can find me practicing martial arts with my children or spending time with my lovely wife.I am a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

  • Well, this was so much better than the previous installments The plot is dynamic, the characters engaging, and the writing has gotten better with every book I just got totally hooked on the series and was looking for the next book, when to my enormous disappointment I read on the author s site that although he has written the next 2 books, the publisher has cancelled their publication due to sales I am quite surprised, since as far as UF books go, this was shaping up to be quite interesting and [...]


  • Smoother than the last one I still thing Sarah is terrific and Pitts seems to be working out some of the kinks with his writing style I hope there are books in this series I ll try to write a longer review soon.


  • Forged in Fire is absolutely the best so far of the Sarah Beauhall series Hopefully not the last Throughout the series you see major character development on all sides for our lovely leading lady The Sarah Beauhall series has almost literally everything a norse mythology fan could want Hot Heroine, Epic Sword, DRAGONS Dwarves, Elves, Magic, Ghosts, Necromancers, Trolls, etc etc etc The list goes on and just keeps getting better Though all of those are things that should get any sane person to re [...]


  • So I finally got around to reading this book Third in the series it evokes the same thoughts and feelings as previous instalments I m interested, the book reads at a very fast pace and there is a decent amount of plot movement much improved from book two in this respect and I don t find the characters or world building annoying All positives when it comes to urban fantasy However I feel a distinct lack of excitement when reading this series I m not sure what s missing but I find that I never get [...]



  • Great villains, good growth in the main characters and an interesting world for them to play in Basically SCA in real life, with some kick ass fighters and the obligatory Orcs, dragons, etc.


  • Once upon a time, while stalking another author, I stumbled across their blog post concerning an amazing illustrator He did the covers for her books and I fell in love with his amazing talent So much so, that I went in search of his website to see what else there was What I found amazing art work Imagine my surprise when I recognized some of them as covers of other books that I had read It dawned on me, that some of the really cool art work I was admiring were covers to books I had not discover [...]


  • I was really about to give up on this book series and it was only because I am a stubborn bastard that really really do not want to give up on what I have started that I read this book in the series One could of course also be kind and say that I was just curious to find out where the story went and that would probably not be too far from the truth as well but I think the main reason is still that I am indeed and stubborn bastard.Anyway, this book is really a huge improvement from the previous b [...]


  • Sarah Beauhall blacksmith, dragon slayer Makes a nice calling card for a character I ve developed a liking for over the three books of this series The writing in Forged in Fire has tightened up, allowing the author to display growth in his craft, and Sarah to display growth in her own skin sense of self I first learned of this series through Mary Robinette Kowal, and was forewarned that this was really the best of the three books out there in the series I loved the raw energy of the first book B [...]


  • I didn t enjoy the second book as much as I enjoyed the first, and I didn t enjoy this third book as much as I enjoyed the second Someone shows up from Sarah s past, causes a minor ruckus for a chapter, and then disappears for the remainder of the book Not as mysterious as it was annoying Mysterious person attached to mysterious group introduced near beginning, then forgotten except for a throwaway mention at the very end for the rest of the book Not mysterious enough, but plenty annoying that i [...]


  • Best of the series so far The story lines are all tied together with just enough hooks left exposed to lead into the next book of the series I can barely wait It s a nice balance between Black Blade Blues and Honeyed Words I m always looking for speculative fiction titles with strong female leads especially lesbian as it s close to my heart This one is written well and keeps the focus on the story line without losing the characters The only comment I would make is that some of the battles are a [...]


  • I think, at this point, I can officially classify myself as a Sarah Beauhall fangirl When I saw the series as Powell s for the first time, I decided I d read it on a whim, not expecting anything than brief entertainment or maybe something to write a scathing review on later Lo and behold I have to take back those thoughts of an unbeliever Forged in Fire is J.A Pitts s third Sarah Beauhall installation, and I had fun than ever Pitts created a cast of full characters and a massive enough world t [...]


  • With this 3rd book, the Sarah Beauhall books are really starting to shine I enjoyed the first two a lot, but by this time Sarah has grown into a stronger, confident character, and the supporting characters and background plots are in full motion Her girlfriend Katie is never just a damsel in distress, she s a complicated person with her own music mage strengths who fights by Sarah s side when needed, and just like any other couple, they figure out how to balance work fighting dragons such and f [...]


  • Book 3 of an urban fantasy set in Washington state that I read for the Endeavour Award Not bad but kind of lost a little of its oomph of the previous books Still a quick read and the action was fine but I d like to see the story itself move along a little faster and I d rather know the characters in quite a bit depth then I think we are ever going to see them 3.5 out of 5 Dragons, Odin, a bard singing and music playing in combat, troll babies.


  • This novel expands our knowledge of the world as well as tying up some loose ends from the earlier books It does a good job of walking the line between focus on the current story and filling in the background arc Also, these are set in my backyard, essentially, so it s fun for me to read for the local references.


  • A good second sequel to what s turning into a really fun series I m definitely looking forward to the next My only complaint is the inclusion of the writing cliche that apparently every lesbian couple wants needs a baby Found it ringing false with Sarah and Katie at this point and felt that whole aspect was forced Oh well, still looking forward to 4 in the series.


  • Book three in the Sarah Beauhall series, this one is as worthy a read as it s companions Pitts does an excellent job of bringing the reader into the world of the characters, and finding out whether they will react to situations the way you suspect, or surprise you is a special sort of fun.


  • Best of the three though I m leaning to 3.5 rather than 4 stars The author finally fully finds his voice and tells a pretty good tale Not bad and I m curious about the next one which is always a good sign.Norse Mythology, modern day setting and a good lead character equals good stuff.




  • i liked it, but there were so many cliffhangers and i don t know if the series got canceled or not.nce the last one was published in 2012i just twittered the authorwonder if he will reply



  • This is an urban fantasy book about dragons and Norse gods running around the Pacific Northwest Yep That is exactly what this is.




  • o my dear lord I love my Sarah beahall she is awesomeness and sarcasm with a pinch of real heroic drive this book was huge and left me needing not wanting the next book so hurry put Pitt



  • Looking forward to in this seriesEach book in the series gets progressively better I m also very pleased with the way Sarah is maturing thus far.


  • Second best entry in the series, very close the first, with tons of action, tension and character development.
