This is the website of Juliana Rew, science fiction author and publisher.

It’s finally here! Book two of my YA SF series, Dragon Stead. Book one, “Erenarch Academy: Under the Dragon Banner” from World Castle Publishing, introduced the world of Sigma Draconis star system. Book two follows the adventures of Network Command warrior Miranda Powers as she fights for the capital planet of Erenarch.


Miranda Powers is the no-holds-barred martial arts and strategy instructor at Erenarch Academy, the most prestigious boarding school in Dragon Stead solar system. From Miranda’s beginnings as a street urchin on the backward planet of Daris, through her adventures as an interplanetary warrior for Network Command, she plays a key role in helping Erenarch resolve the long-running war with Farana.

Miranda of Daris is in Press

I’ve spent the last several days going over the first edits of my new YA science fiction book, Miranda of Daris, with Maxine Bringenberg, editor at World Castle Publishing. It’s exciting to have another one in the works.

I wrote Miranda over a year ago, and I still like it, but I notice that my writing has matured a bit since then. I still have a tendency to “telescope” stories and need to keep working at slowing down the pacing. That’s one disadvantage of having been a journalist. We tend to get to the point entirely too quickly. Not everything is a Dr. Who marathon.

Meanwhile, I continue the search for a literary agent to represent my latest sf/fantasy novel.

Update: Miranda is scheduled for publication on February 15, 2015. You can preorder copies for Kindle on Amazon to get it as soon as it is released!
