Starflight by Melissa Landers Launch Day Blitz


HEY GUYS. I’m SUPER DUPER EXCITED to be celebrating the release of Starflight by Melissa Landers today! If you want to check out how much I loved this book (hint: I gave it 5 stars), you can visit my review on Happy Indulgence here. I loved it so much I even created fanart for it, which you can view here!

So here’s a little message from the author, as well as a swagtastic giveaway. I just wanna say that if you’re up for a fantasmic space adventure with a total swoon-inducing romance and great friendships, then you better check this one out.

Without further ado:

Hey there, booklovers!

I’m author Melissa Landers, and I’m thrilled to announce the release of STARFLIGHT, the first in a brand new sci-fi series from Disney-Hyperion. I originally pitched this story to my editor as “Overboard” (one of my favorite romantic comedies) meets “Firefly” (an amazing show that was tragically cancelled after one season). STARFLIGHT follows the misadventures of Solara Brooks, a penniless felon who indentures herself to her high school nemesis, Doran Spaulding, in exchange for passage to a new world. But when Doran’s memory is temporarily erased, Solara convinces him their roles are reversed—that she’s the master and he’s the servant—and leads him onto a renegade spaceship, where intergalactic shenanigans ensue. STARFLIGHT is very different in tone from the Alienated trilogy, but the story is still filled with all the things I love: humor, heart, and adventure.

What do reviewers have to say?

“Get ready for blast-off! Action-packed and utterly addictive, nobody writes like Melissa Landers. A smart, satisfying romance set in a vividly detailed world, Starflight was just plain fun!”

–New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman

“Teens will be bracing themselves during the swashbuckling action scenes. A great choice for fans of raw sci-fi action, reminiscent of the lawlessness presented in the television series Firefly.”

–School Library Journal

“A lively tale of romance, space pirates, conspiracy, and made (as opposed to genetic) families.”


If you like your sci-fi adventure served with a side of romance, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of STARFLIGHT today. It’s now available in stores and online.

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository | Indie Bound

To celebrate my book birthday, I’m offering one lucky winner a STARFLIGHT swag pack, complete with custom nail wraps, bookmarks, and a mini poster! The giveaway is open internationally. Due to sweepstakes laws, entrants must be 18 years or older to participate.

Best of luck, and happy reading!

Your process is actually a lot like when I get super inspired by a book that I’m reading and want to make graphics or a playlist 🙂 Anyhooooow, I have only heard of the author before thanks to her Alienated trilogy but tbh this book came out of nowhere? LOL. Suddenly everyone is talking about it 😛 I haven’t heard about “Overboard” or “Firefly” but honestly, this book sounds amazing and I’m so in love with the ship already I WANT IT GIVE ME ALLLLL!!!!! Plus, everything that Amie Kaufman praises is pretty much a must-read in my book 😉 And thanks for the swag giveaway, Aila!

      Yeah I’ve always ignored the Alienated trilogy because it wasn’t my thing (after reading Starflight, I read the first book and really liked it!), but this one just captured my heart. I CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO READ IT!!! And UGH it’s just a great science fiction read that everyone should experience.
