To kickoff the Escapist book tour of Unanimity, Justin Gross kindly interviewed Shadow. Brace yourself for a moody interview. This one doesn't like the spotlight. Read the entire interview here.
I'm delighted to announce Unanimity won the Readers Views Literary Award for Science Fiction. You can read their wonderful review here.
A huge thank you to Dave (and team) at TheWriteReads and Shannon (and team) at R&R Book Tours and to the wonderful book bloggers who were kind enough to read Unanimity, feature it, and review it. I'm so grateful you spent some time with my novel and shared your thoughts with the world.
These three weeks have been scary and extraordinary.
Much Love, A

When an author rarely uses social media for personal use and discovers all the IG stories lenses and emojis and is overexcited that her book is arriving in the hands of bookish readers.
Okay, I might have gone overboard. :)
Much love, A.
