A Snake Falls to Earth is a Publishers Weekly BEST BOOK OF 2021!!!

I am so happy to share that A Snake Falls to Earth was chosen as a Publishers Weekly BEST BOOK of 2021!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Fifteen young adult novels were included on the list.

Y’all, I am incredibly grateful for the recognition A Snake Falls to Earth has received. There’s one month to go ’til the launch date in November, and all buzz helps this Indie book reach its readers.

So if you’re interested in a book described as “a smartly intertwined, shifting-perspective story about two characters in worlds that diverged thousands of years ago”, please consider preordering A Snake Falls to Earth at your local bookstore or one of the links on this page (or request it from your library – libraries are great!).

Thank you, kind reader πŸ™‚
