Katherine Forrister's latest update for Curio Citizen

Jun 27, 2017

Hello my dear friends! We have come so far during the past few weeks, and I couldn’t have done it without you. Today is the LAST DAY of the contest. It ends at 11:59pm Pacific Time. Every author is going to be making a big, final push for pre-orders today, so we’ve got to keep up! Please help spread the word by personally asking a spouse, family member, friend, coworker, or anybody else you can think of to pre-order a copy. An ebook is just $10, and being published could truly change my life! I would love to support my daughter all on my own, and this contest could help launch a career that could help me do just that! It really means the world to me. Thank you again so much for all of your help!

Here’s today’s LAST look into the world of Curio Citizen. I leave you with the mysterious Northwaarans...


Northwaar is a mysterious planet within the same solar system as Paz. People don’t talk about the aliens who live there, or if they do, it is in furtive, terrified whispers of an ancient war. It is because of the haunting prospect of another such disaster that the government of Paz has insisted on a state of planet-wide isolationism. 

But what are these Northwaarans? Are they still a threat? Could the simple fear of their presence entangle Carmen’s chances for acceptance on Paz? You’ll have to read Curio Citizen to find out! 

           “There are other species than paz that display such characteristics, Citizen Reúnen,” said a pudgy man with small eyes, “and they are not citizens.”

           “They do not live on Paz, Counselor Juzgan,” Inquieto argued. “They never will. Carmen cannot be compared with them.”

           A great level of disgust was shared by the expressions on the Council members’ faces at the topic of other intelligent species. I was only curious.

          “Perhaps Carmen should be shipped to them,” inserted an angular woman. “The Northwaarans might take her.”

         “She is nothing like the Northwaarans,” Inquieto countered. His fingers clenched tighter to my chair in my periphery. I tensed with him. 

         “Their planet is too foreign. They do not possess the natural nutrients her body requires, and their lifestyle and technology are utterly different and unsuited to any person of pazoid body type.”

         I shuddered at his vague descriptions, wondering what these Northwaarans could possibly be and suddenly terrified I might be sent to another foreign planet. My heart began to beat so rapidly, I thought it might be audible to the Council.


Remember, this is the LAST DAY of the contest. The countdown to 11:59pm Pacific time has begun. I am completely out of people who I can personally ask to pre-order, so please, I am counting on each of you to help get one other person to pre-order by sending private messages, face-to-face conversations, or phone calls. "Shares" on social media are super sweet, but they usually do not work, unfortunately. Asking someone personally is the only way for you to help me in these final hours.

I can’t express how much I am grateful for all of your orders, and all the additional help you can give. You have truly touched my heart; whether we win or lose, I will always be grateful for that!

Thank you.
