The dramatization by the brilliant Jessica Duncan is brilliant and adds the final flourish to a wonderful project.

The next steps will be to organise an audiobook blog tour, which I am quite excited about.

It’s getting close to the audiobook release!

The official launch date is Friday 27th August (2021), and I’m looking forward to that.

The audiobook is undoubtedly the cherry and icing on the cake.

It’s been an effortless process using the Findaway Voices platform,
working with the excellent Jessica Duncan.

Finding a suitable actor for Jayne’s voice was challenging.

But Jessica went far beyond the call and has delivered such a lovely dramatization of Earth 101.

I can’t wait to share this brilliant actor with the audiobook community.

The next step is to approach the audiobook blogging community and see who is interested in listening to the impressive 14-hour story and chatting about it.

So, my water-only fast is going rather well.

I had a feeling it would, but I didn’t expect it to be this easy.

I can certainly feel how active and clear my thoughts and brain are.

Yesterday saw me not needing much sleep at night. Hence I was awake for around twenty hours. I finally went to bed at 6:30 AM this morning. And I had a great sleep until noon.

I’m not hungry even slightly. It’s weird to open my fridge and only see bottles of sparkling water. No food at all in evidence. Hence, no temptation.

It will seem odd when Monday dawns, and that is the seventh day of the water fast. Could I take it further? Most likely, yes, but I won’t.

I’ll be following a very low-calorie diet from then on – around 500 calories per day – so I want to get into that zone of weight loss and build on this fast with a keto-type of diet.

I intend to do the water fast again. Possibly two more times before I stop dieting.

But for now, I’m looking forward to reaching day five and the weekend.

I’ll see what stage my new home build is at tomorrow, Saturday.

Very exciting.

I’ve decided I need a physical reset after more than a year of (COVID) lockdown eating and divulgence.

My body feels out of synch; I feel out of synch.

Hence, I’ve been investigating extreme fasting as detox, and I’m going all in.

This means not a single morsel of food for seven days. After that, I’ll allow myself water, obviously or else there will be some severe organ failure
consequences. I’ll also let myself cups of tea throughout the day. I have the smallest amount of milk in my tea and only a single tablet sweetener.

So, I should be good to go there.

I’ve completed keto diets in the past, where I’ve lived on between 500 and 600 calories per day. Hence, I’m used to controlled starvation methods.

I commenced this plan yesterday, 3rd July 2021, and as standard, day one was easy. So, day two rolls on, and I’m not expecting anything out of
the ordinary. However, I often fast for the first few days of a keto diet, so I reckon the real test will kick in from day four.

Once I complete the fast, I will slip into the very-low-calorie keto diet and purge the extra pounds I have gained over many months. But, of course, the
diet I follow gives me all the vitamins and such I need, so no concern.

I’m pretty excited about this experiment. It’s a first for me to fast for a whole week.

Let’s see how it goes.

Well then.

This has been a wonderful start to the launch of Earth 101.

Zoe @ https://zooloosbookdiary.co.uk/ is an amazing Book Tour Manager and the amount of prep work she did to get the tour together is amazing. It was so exciting to see lots of Book Bloggers wanting to come onboard with my debut novel.

Zoe has summarised the book tour on her website and you can see a collation of the reviews/link in the following:

Well if I am writing this post it means that the blog tour for Earth 101 has sadly come to an end – what secrets did we learn?

Let us recap

The tour kicked off today on 19th July

Jessica Belmont has this review, “The pacing is excellent. I loved all the twists and action. Scifi with some romance and a lot of action. I really enjoyed this and think you will too!”

LoupDargent.info shares this exclusive extract, “Whoever she is with has not uttered a raised word. All I hear is a male mumble of sorts. He’s obviously trying to calm her. But then an unwitting cough escapes me. I grasp my mouth, but then it happens”

20th July saw these posts come in

Red Pillows wasn’t disappointed, “By the end of the book, I was excited and thoroughly satisfied with how the story turned out. I cannot wait to read the next book (if there is one) and recommend this to all sci-fi fans out there! Give this book a try, you won’t be disappointed.”

From First Page to Last shares this extract, “I head for the third-floor admin office. I can tell what Isla’s thinking. But I had my accident over a year ago. My head trauma has gone. Hasn’t it? Just because I forget silly things like shopping lists, doesn’t mean I’ve invented classmates.”

Happy Hump – 21st July – day and we saw this review

One Book More found it interesting, “There are a lot of twists and turns, and the setting is not confined to Earth, which I found really interesting. Missing and unremembered teens, family tragedy, aliens, romance, new worlds, murderous threats, attempted murder, and more create a fast-paced read. “

Pre-weekend Yay day, and on 22nd July we saw this extract,

The Pufflekitteh Reads shares this extract, “Folding my laptop open, my fingers hover over the keyboard. I need a search definition for this. For what though? The web search engine offers various suggestions in response to my typing. Missing people. Forgotten friends. Kidnapped students. Erased from existence. Alien abduction?”

Happy FRI- 23rd July – DAY, what a way to end the week,

Just Katherine shares her review, “The good thing is that there were very unique characters and it was a joy to follow them through the story. The writing style is action packed and well thought out. I would love to find another book from Emae Church in the future.”

Sue Loves to Read found everything she wanted, “This book has a bit of everything in it. Romance alien’s new worlds threats and murder. This is full of action. Did not want to put it down and I didn’t want it to end.”

It’s a thunderstorm kind of day on 24th July, but it is storm-free here,

jay.rae.reads (IG) shares this review, “This book was science fiction, but somehow also weaved a mystery-like feel throughout the novel and splashes of romance too. The characters were fantastic!”

Jazzy Book Reviews puts Emae in the spotlight as we learn which fantastical fictional world she wants to live in, how she describes herself in 3 words, the first book to make her cry and so much more…

It’s a cooler day today but 25th July sees these posts

b for bookreview puts Emae Church in the spotlight, who she would love to co-write a book with, who she would love to interview, how she came up with the cover of her and so much more…

booksbehindthetitle shares this exclusive extract, “This house is where Laura lives.   I’ve battled a mental tug-of-war for the past week, but I must discover, once and for all. The echoes of Laura’s voice haunt me. She was so scared. Why can’t my delusions be unicorns and faeries?”

A gloomy start to 26th July, it must know it’s near the end of the tour!

Donna’s Interviews, Reviews and Giveaways (FB) has this to say, “This is Emae Church debut novel, and there are hints towards this potentially being a series. I truly hope that is the case, and will be one of the first in line to read the next book…”

Dawn’s Book Reviews (FB) shares her thoughts, “The story is a HUGE idea in a setting that is our-world-but-not-our-world. The characters are complex and believable. Emae Church’s writing sinks you right into a story that will leave you wide-eyed after every chapter.”

It’s the penultimate day today, the weather is gloomy, just to match our mood on 27th July

readitandquip (IG) has her take on the book, “Quip Take: I was sold when I got some gaslighting vibes from the synopsis forbidden love Space travel”

The weather is reflecting our mood here, on 28th July, rainy and glum as it’s the final day 

The Magic of Wor(l)ds shares this extract, “My hands are gripping the sides of the seat, and my heart is already thumping so loud, it wants to drown out my words. I can’t have the police on my case again. It’s becoming a habit now, and they will arrest me. Car theft and damage. The scene with Chloe’s mom and me escorted home. And now this. What if I’m sent to court?”

Feed The Crime is a fan, “The plot definitely didn’t disappoint, I constantly wanted to be reading this book because it was so intriguing and there were twists and turns that I just needed to find out more.”

So what did we learn?

That we need a second book..oh wait there is one in the works  That no one can quite believe this is a debut and they want more. People are disappearing but no one knows where….and can’t remember them!! There are many many twists and turns and that the reading is compelling!

Well, I’m sold!

That is indeed a wrap!

Earth 101 is out now and available to buy on Amazon UKAmazon US

Until the next adventure xxx
