Pooled Ink Reviews – 4 star Amazon review US – THE SENTINEL’S ALLIANCE is a thrilling conclusion to this unique trilogy of fantasy, magic, destiny, secrecy, and war.

1 day to go! The Sentinel’s Alliance goes live 6th July. Only 99p to preorder #fantasy http://mybook.to/sentinelalliance

This is just a quick post to highlight the ebook publication of The Sentinel’s Alliance on 6th July 2019!

But I’ll let you into a secret, the paperback is already available to buy at Amazon – I had to make it live to be able to order stock copies. So if you prefer paperbacks you don’t need to wait any longer.

I’m so excited to see the whole trilogy finally complete and I’m even more excited by the fact I will be celebrating the day with a huge blog tour blitz. 32 bloggers have signed up to share reviews, interviews and book spotlight posts. I can’t wait to see what the verdict is on the trilogy.

I’ll be spending the day running a market stall with two other authors in Staines Upon Thames’s High Street. I have high hopes of selling a few signed copies to my local community but I will still be checking up on social media all day, so please message me and share whatever you can to help spread the love for the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

The Sentinel’s Alliance has already received 3 4 star ratings on Goodreads from ARC readers!

Can new alliances save the islands of the Silent Sea from the murderers stalking their shores?

As the island of Kalaya and its people recover from civil war, a new threat surfaces. Invaders from the island of Elkena hunt the seas, butchering those who possess magic. Their scar-faced captain seeks the Fire Mage who it has been foretold will kill him and Tei and her people are in his warpath.

Tei and a band of Kalayans travel to Stone Haven, the home of their new allies, planning to restore magic to the dead island. But the Stone Haven Council have abhorred magic since their people were massacred by Elkenan invaders twenty years before. Commander Farrell must persuade his people to accept magic again, but his plans expose them to their biggest fear and he risks leading Tei and her people into danger, and jeopardising the safety of both their islands.

Under Farrell’s guidance treaties are forged, but is the newly formed Silent Sea Alliance enough to defeat the invaders and stop their bloodthirsty quest to destroy magic forever?

See the trilogy on Goodreads

The whole series is still on sale at 99p each. I would love to make an impact with sales over the next few days, so if you know anyone who enjoys a face-paced, character-driven fantasy with world building reviewers have been raving about, why not direct them my way.

Silent Sea Chronicles blog tour wrap up #fantasy #bookreviews #bookbloggers

The 10 day blog tour is over and it’s been amazing. I’ve been honoured to have so many reviewers post reviews of The Lost Sentinel and The Sentinel’s Reign on their blogs. I’ve tried to respond to each reviewer personally, but if I’ve accidentally missed you, I would like to thank you now for being involved. It means a lot to see people have enjoyed my books, well it means more than a lot…

Here’s a reminder of the blog schedule;

Silent Sea Chronicles Full Tour Banner

A very big thank you goes to Rachel, she’s done a brilliant job hosting the tour and organising everything.  If you want a blog tour, I highly recommend you contact Rachel’s Random Resources.

I’ve shared links to the reviews for the last 10 day, so I won’t clutter this post with links, even though I want to keep sharing the brilliant reviews with you. Instead, let’s take a quick look at the stats;

The Lost Sentinel now has 38 ratings on Goodreads and 28 reviews with an average of  4.08 stars.

The Sentinel’s Reign has 19 ratings on Goodreads and 14 reviews with an average of 4.11 stars.

My overall ratings on Goodreads for all 4 books is 106 with an average of 4.16 stars. I’m so happy to have reached triple figures and hope to see this number continue to grow.

Amazon reviews are still low for both books, which is a shames as I want to run a BookBub ad and I think they look at Amazon rather than Goodreads ratings. I shall go for it anyway and keep my fingers crossed I am lucky this time.

If you have read the books would you consider writing a quick review?

Don’t forget the big upcoming event on 6th July – the release of The Sentinel’s Alliance!

Many of the above reviewers have agreed to read The Sentinel’s Alliance – book 3, so I hope you can come back on to read what they thought of the conclusion to the trilogy. Look forward to seeing you then.

Day 9 & 10 finale of Silent Sea Chronicles Blog tour #fantasy #yafantasy #bookreview #99p series

This is the final day of the blog tour for Silent Sea Chronicles. Both books have received some wonderful reviews and here are a few more quotes I’d like to share from days 9 and 10.

J Bronder Book Reviews – A double review of book 1 and 2

The Lost Sentinel – ‘I loved this world and how it was written without a huge info dump. I loved the concept of twisting people’s beliefs of magic users into fear to control… I think this is a great start to a new series. I am very curious to see what happens in the next book and recommend anyone that likes fantasy stories to check this book out.’

The Sentinel’s Reign – ‘I really like how those raveled frayed endings from the first book are wrapped together and some of my questions answered. We find an end to one conflict but so many more waiting to strike in the shadows… This is a great series and one that any fantasy lover will enjoy. Now I can’t wait to read the last book, Sentinel’s Alliance to see how this finally ends.’

M M Cheryl Book Blog – ‘This is the second part of an intriguing high fantasy series with a compelling premise and characters. Rogerson delivers a solid read, which isn’t always easy when it comes to the genre. I am enjoying the read so far and look forward to the third book in the series, the Sentinel’s Alliance.’

Jess Bookish Life – ‘I’m still very intrigued by the magical aspect of this fantasy world and I do love to figure things out and learn about the rule (societal, cultural and magical) when dealing with a fantasy genre novel. So it’s always good when the author gives the readers some bits and pieces of information as then go deep into the series or world building. In that sense, this novel brings some extra stuff to us… Over all, love the book. If you like fantasy novels, you should check this out.’

Just Books – ‘Suzanne Rogersons world building and descriptive writing ensured that, once again, I could always see where in the world I and the characters were… I have become attached to many of the characters within the pages of the Silent Sea Chronicles and am looking forward to reading the final instalment.’

Mai’s Musings – ‘…Her vivid descriptions make me wish I could pay a visit to the Silent Sea and meet the inhabitants of Kalaya and Stone Haven in person… I enjoyed getting to know the characters better this time around, and really understanding what made some of them tick, finding out why they acted the way they did. For more than one this meant a major change of opinion about them, and my favourite characters were constantly changing. I found my emotions wildly bouncing from joy, to heartbreak, to triumph and everything in between as the story unfolded around them, and lives were changed forever.’

***

It’s great to end the tour with a bang!

A huge thank you to all those involved in this epic blog tour. I plan to do a wrap up post tomorrow, so please join me then.

I hope these reviews have inspired you to take a chance on Silent Sea Chronicles. The whole series can be yours for only £2.97! I really hope you’re ready to take that leap and wish you well on the adventure. Why not get in touch and let me know what you think. I love to hear my readers feedback.

Happy Book Birthday to The Sentinel’s Reign – 1 today! #fantasy #99p #99c

What a wonderful day to celebrate the book birthday of book 2 in my Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy – The Sentinel’s Reign.

 

ebook pic

The year has flown by whilst I’ve been writing the third installment and preparing for publication of The Sentinel’s Alliance next week. It’s amazing to think that a little idea of a character lost in the woods and found by two strangers has become a 1000+ page trilogy = 380k+ words.

I have to admit I’m feeling a little lost myself now the trilogy is complete. I have lots of plans for future books within the Silent Sea Chronicles and other books to complete, but it’s always a struggle to let go and settle into something new.

I’ve been busy all week sharing reviews for books 1 and 2 in the series, so this is just a quick post to celebrate the birthday and remind you that all the books in the trilogy are only 99p at the moment.

Keep an eye out for more reviews coming in during the last two days of the blog tour. I’ll just share the one quick quote from a recent review on Goodreads by Jessica Belmont as it deals with something every writer of trilogies must fear…

‘What I love about The Sentinel’s Reign is that it doesn’t struggle from “middle book syndrome.” The plot is great, the characters are developing, and this doesn’t feel like just a bridge from book one to book three!’

The books have picked up so many wonderful quotes during the blog tour and I would love to share them all. Why not check them out on Goodreads and Amazon on the links below.

Finally, I’ll end with a plea. According to an increasing number of reviewers this trilogy is worth reading. If you are considering it and would like to help out a struggling author then please buy it now. I would love to make an impact when book 3 comes out on 6th July. And of course, if you have read it, those reviews you share on Amazon and Goodreads are like gold dust. I want to run a Bookbub ads soon and the more reviews I have the better my chances of being accepted.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend.

The Lost Sentinel        The Sentinel’s Reign        The Sentinel’s Alliance.

 

The whole series can be yours for only £2.97, less than the cost of one book at its usual price!

Day 8 – Silent Sea Chronicles blog tour #fantasy The Sentinel’s Reign book 2

Today the reviews are all focused on Book 2 in the Silent Sea Chronicles – The Sentinel’s Reign. I’m really pleased to share some great reviewer quotes with you. Please click on the link to read the full reviews.

image

K T Robson – ‘What a fantastic continuation from book one, The Lost Sentinel! All the in depth world building, along with all the lovable (And not so lovable) characters have been carried across seamlessly, allowing us to get to know all our favourites even better than before. Not to mention all the descriptions of the lands, easily adding Kalaya into my list of fictional places I would love to visit – Just preferably when there’s not a war waging!’

Terror Tree – ‘All I can say is what a read and even after finishing this book, I am still thinking of the rollercoaster of a story…

After reading The Lost Sentinel, I was invested in these character’s lives and as before, beware of heartbreak. There were times that I was in mourning and then as I was continuing the story, I wanted to fist pump the air. This story will flip your emotions and as the story intensifies with the pending danger, I could not put this book down. As I finished this story I felt physically drained as if I had been there following them all.’

Splashes Into Books – ‘The story continues with many of the same characters and some new ones. I’m going to try not to give any spoilers away, so won’t discuss exactly what happens, enough to say this story continues with several different threads skilfully interwoven to create a developing, complex picture involving threats of war, magic, strangers, dangers, death and romance… It is an intriguing action packed magical adventure and a great addition to the series!’

 

The whole series can be yours for only £2.97! Can you resist it at this bargain price?

Day 7 of Silent Sea Chronicles Blog tour #fantasy #bookreview organised by @rararesources

Here comes some reviews today for The Sentinel’s Reign…

Seans book reviews – ‘This series is great and I just love to see what has happened from the first book to the second you see the growth of Tei who is the star of the show.’

Radzy writes – ‘It’s obvious the author has carefully plotted this series and put in many hours, to the point where I’m stunned this series hasn’t exploded to a mainstream audience yet. It’ll happen, and if you’re on the fence as to whether you should keep going with the series, the answer is yes. Continue, and then shout at all your fantasy loving friends to check this out as well.  …I should say somewhere however, that you don’t need to be an avid fantasy reader to enjoy this. It’s magical realism, and the undercurrent of fantasy is subtle enough, that even your fans of general epics will get a real kick out of this. It’s genre’d right, and is absolutely fantasy, but it’s not High, nor Paranormal.’

 

And a mid-read review on The Lost Sentinel

Writing with wolves – ‘…the world-building in this book feels super unique to me… I love that we get to experience three different parts of this world but my favourite is of course the exiled land of Kalaya; I love the tunnel system & the feeling of magic that flows out of the book during the scenes set in that part of the world. The island that Farrell lives on also intrigues me though & I’m excited to learn more about it as the story progresses.’

***

I just want to say a quick thank you to all the reviewers who have taken the time to read and review my books. I really appreciate your help reaching more readers. And of course a special thank you to Rachel for organising everything.

There are still three days to go on the tour so I hope you can join me for more quotes. I will just ask if these reviews have caught your interest, please consider picking up the trilogy for only £2.97. And of course, I’d love to see your reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

Thanks very much.

Day 6 recap Silent Sea Chronicles #blogtour #fantasy #bookreview

This is a quick recap of the reviews that came in on Day 6 of the blog tour.

A couple of new reviews for The Lost Sentinel

Mai’s Musings – ‘The Lost Sentinel is a rich storyline told from various viewpoints, and as I tried to work out how these would all intertwine over the course of the books, I found I was asking more and more questions, and reading faster and faster. It is the sort of book that you want to read slowly so it doesn’t end, but at the same time you can’t help but race through.’

The Treasure Within Blog – ‘Tei is a resilient character, but not a perfect person, by any means. She makes numerous mistakes and bad choices, and is forced to deal with the consequences of her actions. It’s refreshing to read a character who’s author really wasn’t afraid to supply with flaws – and it makes Tei feel much more realistic overall. In the writing world, a very focused- on fact is the necessity of providing characters with flaws – and I think Suzanne Rogerson has done a stellar job of it.’

 

The Sentinel’s Reign – book 2 in Silent Sea Chronicles also hit the spotlight with reviewers.

Jessica Belmont – ‘What I love about The Sentinel’s Reign is that it doesn’t struggle from “middle book syndrome.” The plot is great, the characters are developing, and this doesn’t feel like just a bridge from book one to book three!’

PageFarer Book Blog – ‘I said in my last review that Rogerson is good at writing bad guys; this is still the case but another thing to add to that is the depiction of injustice – something that always gets to me in the real world, and the unfairness of which I found was genuinely affecting me at times.’

The Treasure within – ‘A small character from the first book was picked up again in this narrative, and expanded into a more main member of the cast. She was honestly one of my favourites throughout the book – a young but powerful magic-wielder, with uncanny senses and the kindest of hearts. She stole my heart, and I hope to read more of her in the third book!’

Thanks very much to the reviewers on this tour, you’ve made this last week awesome!

 

There are still a few more days on the tour to go so I hope you can join me again.

Mid year update #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #indieauthor

I haven’t been around on social media as much as I’d like as I’ve been juggling writing projects. I hope things will calm down once my latest book is released on 6th July. More about that in a moment.

What I’ve been doing…

I’ve tried a few new ventures. A craft bookstall at my local high street Staines-upon-Thames, where I met some nice people and managed to sell a few books too. A couple of people bought all three of my books, which was a great boost and made the day worthwhile.

DSC_3845

I shared the stall with G.J Stevens who writes Zombie thrillers. I’ve read his debut In The End and highly recommend it. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to share my review here at some point.

A week later, I joined forces with two authors G.J Stevens again and Katy Johnson who writes mystery thrillers and we ran a pop-up author shop in Eton high street. It wasn’t as successful as Staines, but again I met some interesting people and we hope to run the shop again in July on a couple of dates. More info will follow and I hope to get some more pictures the next time around.

DSC_3860

DSC_3863

I now feel more confidant with these type of events and have my public liability set up for a year, so I’m determined to make more use of it! Anyone know any local events we can crash?

Last week I went to Winchester Writers’ Festival and attended a fun workshop about fantasy writing run by Jasper Fforde. I also pitched a new novel idea to two agents and a publisher and received some encouraging feedback along with plenty of ideas to develop the novel. I highly recommend the day and want to thank @JunoGoldstone for showing me around and making the day less daunting.

Writing News

I’ve spent months editing and finalising Book 3 – The Sentinel’s Alliance. Now it’s just the last proofread to do before the big release day 6th July 2019! The pre-order is live, so why not make my day and pre-order a copy for only 99p worldwide.

Can new alliances save the islands of the Silent Sea from the murderers stalking their shores?

Find out in The Sentinel’s Alliance.

That’s it for my latest news, so I’ll be back tomorrow with the start of the two book blog tour. Hope you can join us.
