Hello, book-loving friends!

I’m so excited to announce the start of our blog tour! We kick right off with UrbanHyper101, where you get an exclusive look at the Alliance, the sprawling interplanetary coalition at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. Never before released details are there, which aren’t even detailed in the book!

Every stop on this tour is going to have exclusive, never before seen details, and other cool features. I’m so excited to show off the aliens drawn by artist Llyod Ladera, it’s been near impossible to keep them secret from you! There’s also interviews, Q&As, some inside, in-depth looks at Zander and Sally…

Head on over to UrbanHype101 to read more… and to gather the secret word of the day! Because every day, there will be a word, hidden in plain sight, for you to pick up. Once you collect them all, remember to email them to scavengerhunt@bolidepublishing.com  and you could win a signed copy of Alienation and a gift pack of unique swag. The swag is so cool I just had to get some made for myself as well!

Here’s the list of all the blogs we’ll be visiting on this interstellar tour:

This also marks the official start of the FANART CONTEST! The Winner receives a signed paperback of STARSTRUCK or ALIENATION! You wanted it, you’re getting it! The first official fanart contest is now open! Grab your pencils, pens, tablets, or other favorite art tools, and draw me your answer to this question: where would you go, if you could go anywhere in the universe? OR draw anything inspired by the book! Artwork will be judged on creativity, so there’s no limitation on the format. And don’t worry about making it a work of art – just have fun! I loved the entries for the release party and I’m dying to see what you come up with when 24h isn’t the limit. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Email your entry to seanderson@bolidepublishing.com before October 18th to be entered to win!

We’re going to have so much fun! Don’t forget to preorder your copy of ALIENATION before it releases, on the 24th of October!
