Normally, in the lead up to release day, I pretty much want to pack my bags and run away. I make plans to ignore the internet and tell myself I don’t care what people think of my book. To See the Sun is different. I’ve actually had trouble containing my excitement over this release! I love this book, and I’m thrilled to finally be able to share it with everyone.
The idea for To See the Sun came to me while I was reading a Harlequin historical about a mail-order bride. I loved the pioneering setting, I loved the trope, and I knew that putting my own spin on it—having a mail-order groom—would require some colouring outside the lines. So I turned to space, fiddled with a plot, and sat down to write.
More than almost anything else I’ve written, this book is for me. It has:
- Swoon-worthy romance
- A story of overcoming the odds
- Sweet characters
- Cool gadgets!
I also wanted the science fiction setting to mean something—to be an integral part of the story.
Read the first three chapters of To See the Sun!
Follow the Tour!
As always, I’m doing a virtual book tour and this one has dozens of stops! Because I was so excited about this book, I went all out. Dozens of stops also means multiple giveaways, including gift cards, ebooks from my backlist, signed paperbacks of the Chaos Station stories, and a bracelet representing the colors of Alkirak. Follow along on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to participate. All of my giveaways are open internationally.
Because listing all the tour stops would make this post very, very long, I’m only going to link a couple from today and let you follow on from there. I’ll be sharing future stops on social media, links to which are at the bottom of the page.
