Another day, another book release! Starstruck six is out in the world and I couldn’t be happier. It’s hard to wrap my head around this being the sixth Starstruck book – my SEVENTH novel overall – even with them being right in front of me! I feel like I need to do something massive to celebrate, but there aren’t many options with these quarantine measures. Ha!

Pick up your copy – if you’re ready for adventure!

It’s weird waking up to a book release day in a pandemic. There’s no big events or fanfare. It’s just… out. All the excitement consolidated to a tight social media bubble. But I’m hoping that fans of the series are waking up to a brand new adventure on their kindles and are just as excited to tuck in as I am that Earthstuck is out in the world.

So I have a lot of people to thank specifically for helping out with the release. First and foremost, I have to give a massive squeeze to Oumaïma Belouali and her superhero photography skills! She took me on a shoot to celebrate the release and made me look all fancy!

(I seriously want to use this photo as my author pic but then it would be really Earthstuck specific)

Now onto the amazing blog tour ladies!

We kicked off on Tuesday with a photo post and a review of Starstruck from Sammy’s Shelf!

Hello bookstagram! 👋 Today I'm taking part in a very exciting blog tour! Earthstuck is the 6th book in the Starstruck Saga by @readcommendations 🌎 and like the prequels, full of action, adventure, and sarcastic humour! 💚 This book will be released a week from today: 18th August and is just perfect for a summer read! Sally, Zander, and Blayde and more loveable than ever and this very different backdrop to their adventures makes for an exciting new perspective. Don't get me wrong I love exploring all the new worlds, but there's something wonderful about being taken on an adventure around your own planet/ moon! Without any hesitation I'm giving this book the full 5 stars it deserves ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It delivers on its promise of being fun and adventurous, and I just love how real the characters are throughout this whole series. I also love real-world references and how despite the years of life experience Blayde and Zander have, they're still so very naive, (cue: internet scams!) A huge thank you to @readcommendations for letting me be a part of this blog tour! And for the goodies sent through with this book! (Love that ad for The Agency!) Look out for my full review on my blog this evening! 💚📚 #earthstuck #starstrucksaga #seanderson #igreads #instabooks #bookporn #lovereading #bookaddict #bookworm #bookphotography #prettybooks #scifi #florida #area51 #starstruck #comedy #romance #action #adventure #bookblogger #bookreview #igbooks #summerreads #booksbooksbooks #bookstack #gifted

🌍🌴Earthstuck 🌴🌍 Q. Who would be your ideal space mission crew? Today is my stop on the Earthstuck tour and I will be sharing a Q&A session with S. E. Anderson. 💫 Q&A 💫 Q1. How many books will there be in the Starstruck Saga? A. There will be 10 books in the saga, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop writing books in this world! I have a few standalones swimming in my head! Q2. What Inspired you to write the series? A. I was inspired by my HS best friend who was such a blast to write with. We really wanted to capture the fun of watching a Doctor Who episodes but with characters who were more like us. We just wanted to play with writing, and it was a blast! Q3. Do you feel that your knowledge of astrophysics has helped you write the books? A. I feel like my science knowledge actually holds me back? I keep having to trash plot points because I’d be embarrassed of colleagues read them! Q4. Can you sum up the book in 5 words? A. Earthstuck: change, Moon, UFO, Murder, Malls. Q5. What’s your favourite quote from Earthstuck? A. “You know what they say: Shoot for the moon, die in space.” ~Synopsis~ Sally just wanted a nice Florida vacation, but between literal jump-scares, internet scammers, and the not-FBI hot on their tail, just can’t seem to find the time to relax. Will she and Zander ever have that candlelight dinner? When a mystery lands on their doorstep in the middle of the night, it seems like the answer to all their problems. From Florida malls to the dark side of the moon, the trio needs to stall their nervous breakdowns in order to save the planet from an extra-terrestrial murderer – and, apparently, themselves. #earthstucktour #earthstuck #seanderson #seandersonauthor #starstrucksaga #readersofinstagram #instagramqanda #qanda #bookstagram #book #yabookseries #bookseries #scifibooks #bookworm #bookstagrammer #yabooks #readingtime #booklover

On Sunday, we hopped on over to Cora (first fan! woop woop!) Who showed us her massive collection of Starstruck swag, as well as revealed some fun quotes. I’ll only share one post here, but be sure to check them all out 😉

On Monday, Karen Jo from sincereykarenjo brought us gorgeous pics and an exciting excerpt from the book… including an art reveal I haven’t shared anywhere else!

And finally, on Tuesday – just yesterday! – brilliant SF author Laura Loup interviewed me (me!) about Earthstuck, Starstruck, and all things in between. Check it out!

And then – boom! Suddenly the book was out in the world. And I can look back on these gorgeous photos and lovely, loving posts and wish that all these wonderful people were here right now so I could give them really big hugs.

Thank you to all the fans out there who have kept Starstruck alive. I can’t wait to show you new art, adventure, stories, characters – it’s thanks to you that this world keeps spinning round!

If you’ve read the book, please consider popping a review on Amazon and Goodreads. It means a lot to me.

Love to all,

Sarah
