Wow! What an awesome and exciting tour this has been! Did you miss a fun interview or guest post with Desiree Williams or book reviews of Illusionary?
No worries! Below is a short recap of the lively interviews and other fun features (with links).
First up, a really fun interview between J.M. Hackman and Desiree that was priceless! Very fun fact Desiree shared about herself and name inspiration for one of her characters. “Interview with Desiree Williams and Giveaway”
Many thanks to author Rachel Lopez for the sweet spotlight of Illusionary!
The imaginary Land of Ur was also well-developed. I had no problem imagining it’s forests, castles, Jolly Harbor, and other places (don’t want to give away too much!) because of all the descriptions that kept my mind spinning.
I read a lot of good books. This one though. Just wow. My mind is blown. I’m in love with the story, the characters the writing. All of it.
A very encouraging and fun interview with Desiree over on Bookworm Mama’s blog. What kind of secret powers does she have? (Hint: She has the shirt to prove it.) “Illusionary Blog Tour + Giveaway – Desiree Williams”
I loved this imaginitave retelling of Peter Pan! It had me laughing and swooning and wishing I could be there in real life. I have to read another of the author’s books soon – I’m told they are just as good.
This interview with Desiree has some little golden nuggets floating about. Concerned it will be filled with spoilers? Don’t worry! No spoilers there for those who haven’t read Illusionary yet, though if you did read her previous book, Sun and Moon, you definitely don’t want to miss this interview. “FANtastic Interview with Illusionary Author, Desiree Williams.”
They say books are dangerous. Author Laurie Lucking would heartedly agree! “Illusionary by Desiree Williams – Blog Tour! (Laurie)”
Illusionary was one of those dangerous books that basically caused me to forego real life as much as possible so I could just keep reading. I lost sleep, I skimped on chores – you get the idea.
Believing I was in for a treat because I enjoy this author’s style and stories, I dove headfirst into Illusionary…and found myself on an intriguing adventure!
Second, even though life is painful, extremely agonizing and has the potential to make you afraid, there is always a way out. There will always be beauty and joy in the midst of the darkness.
In need of a good book that crushes your heart with emotion? Don’t worry! Grace at She Hearts Fiction says Illusionary has you covered. “‘Illusionary’ by Desiree Williams — Blog Tour Book Review”

About the Book
Alice fell down a hole.
Wendy flew to Neverland.
Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.
Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.
Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.
No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.
Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.
