That’s a wrap, everyone!
What an excellent tour! I’m thrilled with the response In the Orbit of Sirens has received. When I wrote it, I wasn’t even sure if anyone would read it. When you put your heart, mind, and soul into something, then release it for the world to eat up, you never know what can happen. It’s a necessary risk, and for me, I was happy to see it was at least a tasty meal for some people. I’m overjoyed with the excellent reviews from Cosmic Lattes & Books, Beneath a Thousand Skies, OllieSpot SFF Book Reviews & Interviews, Jea Reads, FanFiAddict, Sue’s Musings, One Reading Nurse, and Book, and Nature Professor.
Here’s what they have been saying, with links to their reviews and twitter handles:
“I can’t say enough great things about In the Orbit of Sirens. I love science fiction and this was perfect.”

“The fast-paced, edge-of-the-seat fight sequences are also well thought through and no details are overlooked, making it highly enjoyable and a book that is difficult to put down.”

I also want to thank Through Novel Time & Distance, Whispers & Wonder, Jea Reads, The Queen’s Book Asylum and Fantasy Book Critic for taking the time to interview me. I loved the questions they asked, and it really made me dive deep into why I became a writer, and what some of my philosophies are for storytelling.
Here are some links to their interviews!

And last but not nearly least! The Instagram spotlights from Whispers & Wonders, Genericbooks, Jea Reads, The Enchanted Shelf, OllieSpot, Plot_Head, One Reading Nurse, and Book and Nature Professor. What lovely photos! Nothing makes me happier than seeing other people with a copy of my book, no matter the format. I worked hard to make it something people would be proud to have on their shelves. Their photos can be seen in the featured image at the top of this post.
A special thanks goes to Storytellers on Tour for setting up this tour. They were phenomenal to work with, very patient with anything I had questions about, and professional the entire time. I felt like my book baby was in good hands. I can’t recommend them enough to other self-published authors like myself. They are top notch!
I also want to give a special shoutout to Scarlett at Through Novel Time & Distance. We crossed paths on Instagram awhile back, and she has been a huge support. She tipped me off to Storytellers on Tour, and I have her to thank for kicking this tour off. Check out her interview with me for an exclusive first look at Book 2’s art.
To close it all out, I want to say that I can’t thank everyone enough for their time and kind words. I got to talk with some great hosts, and made a few new friends along the way. This has been awesome, and I hope to get some of these excellent hosts back for book 2. I will be revealing the cover and title April 12th, so mark your calendars!
Cheers everyone! It’s been amazing!
