Audio blog tour round up for The Lost Sentinel #fantasy #audiobook

The audio tour for The Lost Sentinel ran last week from 8th to 15th November. A big thanks to Jess the Audiobookworm for organising everything.

Today I wanted to share the finalised schedule and links to all the blogs involved. Thank you to these lovely people who shared audio samples, author and narrator interviews, reviews and spotlight features. I certainly found George’s interview interesting, it’s not everyday you get to hear from a narrator’s perspective. Click on the links below to find out more.

Sadie’s Spotlight (Spotlight, Audio Excerpt)

‘…oh my goodness, I must gush about this voice! George Ellington’s smooth Scottish accent gave the story a medieval highland feel that I think suited it very well. Criticize the world-building for being simply “medieval Europe but magic” if you wish, but I didn’t mind at all, and I couldn’t imagine a more appropriate regional accent to bring this story to life. Even if I hadn’t enjoyed the story, I would have listened to the end just to hear Mr. Ellington keep reading it!’ Quote from Westveil review link above…

The Lost Sentinel – Book Tour Wrap Up #fantasy #readindie

The book tour for The Lost Sentinel ran from 6th to 12th of September. In case you’ve missed the details here was the line up…

Timy gave a great round up of the tour you should check out, but I wanted to do my own post to highlight the reviews and as my way of saying thanks to the reviewers involved. Please click the links to visit their blogs.

Right, let’s start at the beginning…

First Day Intro

Whispers and Wonders

Check out the start of the tour with some great interview questions about the book and my research, plus some quickfire Q&A’s.

Day One

GnofletReads

‘For those of you who enjoy romance and the like, I would definitely suggest giving The Lost Sentinel a read. Even as someone who almost never enjoys romance in a book, I was still able to see that it was written very well, and lead to some quite emotional moments.’

Day Two

Woven from Words

‘Kalaya’s world building is captivating. Its landscapes and mythology instantly pulled me in!’

Kats Reading Corner

‘The magic system was really interesting and I love the idea that the island has magic that the Mystics must protect but the none magical people have forgotten and don’t look after the island ass they should. I really wish we had more stories where the land was actually alive with magic…’

Day Three

The Book in Hand

‘I think this book would be a good read for those just getting into fantasy or who don’t read it often but sometimes want an escape from their usual reading as it gives you all the things we love about fantasy…’

Bookriot

‘Iᖴ YOᑌ ᗩᖇᗴ IᑎTO ᖴᗩᑎTᗩՏY Tᕼᗴᑎ YOᑌ ՏᕼOᑌᒪᗪ ᑭIᑕK TᕼIՏ ᗷOOK. 𝗙𝗮𝘀𝘁!!’

Day Four

Out of this world

‘THE LOST SENTINEL is a solid fantasy tale that reminded me of some of my most treasured fantasy comfort reads.  The magic especially is very well done and spun with an alacrity that is hard to come by these days.’ 

Gwyendalin

‘A high fantasy novel with stunning world building along with magic, romance, and an epic quest.’

soooo many books

‘A true fantasy is as good as the world it depicts. And this world is amazing! …the twists, the magic, the world make you loose yourself a little in this breathtaking fantasy.’

Day Five

I can has books?

‘I found this book to be well written, very plot and character driven, with fantastic world building.’

Bri’s Book Nook

An excerpt with my favourite character, Garrick.

The bookishfae

The review has been delayed due to shipping issues of the paperback. So instead the bookishfae shared a spotlight post and excerpt.

Last Day Encore

RockStarlit BookAsylum

Wrap up interview with some asylum related questions that made me look at my book in a whole new way!

Plus there’s a song list I used whilst writing the trilogy and some super cool Youtube videos too, so be sure to stop by for a read and a listen.

***

Thanks to Storytellers on tour and to all the book reviewers who took part. Being an indie author and reaching readers is really hard, so I appreciate your support in sharing my trilogy with your followers.

THE LOST SENTINEL Silent Sea Chronicles Book 1 by @rogersonsm #bookreview #fantasy

I’m really happy to share this wonderful review of The Lost Sentinel. Please head over to Booksfromdusktilldawn for the full review.

BOOKS FROM DUSK TILL DAWN

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The magical island of Kalaya is dying, along with its Sentinel. With the Kalayan people turning their back on magic, can Tei help the exiles find their new Sentinel before it’s too late?

Kalaya is controlled by the Assembly – set up to govern but now under the control of Rathnor, who is intent on persecuting those who have magic, many of whom have taken refuge in the Turrak Mountains.
Tei has been raised to hide her magic, until her father, Migil, is visited by an old friend who warns them that they must seek refuge in the mountains.
On the journey, an enemy attack leaves her father mortally wounded. He sees her into the care of two exiles, Rike and Garrick, and on his deathbed makes a shocking confession that changes Tei’s life.
Tei must put her trust in these strangers, especially when mysterious Masked Riders seem…

The Lost Sentinel #blogtour Wrap up #TuesdayBookBlog #fantasy http://mybook.to/LostSentinel

It has been a manic few months of planning, answering questions and dreaming up guest posts, but now the blog tour has come to an end. I’ll keep checking back over all the posts and replying to any comments, but right now I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who took part, everyone who liked, commented and shared, and of course thanks to those who were kind enough to review my new book.

small blog tour header

I do have a big apology to make to two bloggers, who I included in the tour to post reviews, but due to email errors at my end they hadn’t been aware they were actually supposed to post reviews on these dates. Sorry Susan – Books from Dusk till Dawn and Mirjana – Oloriel Moonshadow/Cyanide and Cherries. Yahoo has been doing some funny things with my emails, and somehow I didn’t realise these two slipped through and were not sent / received. Running a blog tour with 17 bloggers over 16 days, it was inevitable something would go wrong, but still… I should have been on top of it.

Below, I’ve added links to each post over the 16 day blog tour, so please check out any you may have missed.

Thank you again to everyone who took part in the blog tour. I’ve had a lot of fun, but it’s also been an exhausting experience. I have so much sleep to catch up on, plus there’s cleaning to be done and book 2 is still waiting to be finished!

Finally, I will be taking a break from blogging. Everyone is probably fed up of these posts by now anyway, and I really want to get on with book 2 while the kids are still at school. Only 3 and half weeks to go! I need to put in some serious writing time.

Thanks again to everyone for your support.

The Lost Sentinel blog tour – How writing has turned me into an obsessive learner #amwriting

As promised, here’s the link to my guest post on Louderthansilver.

I hope you enjoy seeing how writing has influenced my learning. And in case you missed it yesterday, I posted some photos of the birds of prey I visited a few weeks ago in the name of research (and because I love them).

Join me again tomorrow for the last day of the blog tour.

#GoodReads #giveaway open #Win The Lost Sentinel in paperback #epicfantasy #fantasy #highfantasy

I can’t believe The Lost Sentinel has been published just over a week. With the blog tour coming to an end on Monday, I’ve set up a WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY. Someone will win a paperback copy, could it be you?

at Goodreads.

The kindle edition is still 99p / 99c for the next few days – Amazon Universal link – and it’s free to read to everyone enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

The reviews are coming in…

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Fantasy at it’s best, June 17, 2017

5.0 out of 5 stars great beginning to a fantasy series, can’t wait to read the rest!, June 16, 2017

I’m looking to get more reviews on Amazon, so if you have read it, or are intending to read, please consider leaving a review in the future. It only takes a few minutes and doesn’t need to be an essay, unless you want to write one that is. Goodreads has 7 reviews so far (not bad after only a week of publication!). You can click on the link above to read these reviews.

Next weekend I’ll be holding my second ever book event! A pirate themed school fair, which fits my book perfectly. I’ll post up some pictures and share how the day went.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I hope you can join me for the last few posts of the blog tour.
