While attempting to fix this page, so that it simply showcases the events I will be participating in, I started to reflect. The following was the result:
Participating in book tours, or blog tours, as a host during the event has been such an extraordinary experience for me. There’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying a book that has come into this world, only as a result of the authors own personal, financial, and sanity testing sacrifice. Any self published author can tell you the difficulties and hardships they have endured in order to give their baby life.
These events are not something a reviewer is paid to do. In some instances, a physical book is provided in exchange for an honest review. Mostly, it’s a digital copy, which is always cool with me. It is an opportunity to get additional exposure for my blog, to meet new people(connections, connections, connections, knowhatimtokkeenbout?? Yeah budddddy!) as well as the joy of a good read of course!
The number one thing for me is that I get to be supportive, while also expanding and pushing my own personal creative abilities. I’m searching for a path that aligns with the financial needs of having a young family, but also, finding a career that will satisfy the part of me that’s been drowned out over the last 20 years. I mentally cannot work while my every minute of everyday is recorded and accounted for.
Turning 40, and the whole quarantine just shook my entire sense of the misery I had accepted as just normal and the way things were. I finally believe that I have the experience, the wisdom, the desire, and willingness to take action, in order to succeed while going down my own path in life.

Plague has come to the continent of Teringia.
As the Wrack makes its slow, relentless march southwards, it will humble kings and
healers, seers and merchants, priests and warriors. Behind, it leaves only screams and
suffering, and before it, spreads only fear.
Lothain, the birthplace of the Wrack, desperately tries to hold itself together as the
plague burns across it and its neighbors circle like vultures. The Moonsworn healers
would fight the Wrack, but must navigate distrust and violence from the peoples of Ter-
ingia. Proud Galicanta readies itself for war, as the Sunsworn Empire watches and waits
for the Wrack to bring its rival low.
And the Wrack advances, utterly unconcerned with the plans of men.
Between Starfalls by S. Kaeth Book Tour Presented by WriteHive
Here’s the link to the tour info: Between Starfalls by S. Kaeth
This will be my first book tour outside of Storytellers On Tour and a first time doing a Guest Post. Kriti from WriteHive has been a really positive and fun person I’ve been fortunate to have met through all of the amazing members of the SFF writing community.
I look forward to July 7th to post my review. Also, on one of the days, there will be a Guest Post on my site about a very cool topic that I think most people will find interesting.
