Book Release: Obscura Burning

Happy Release Day!! 

It's finally here! *pops the champagne and tosses confetti*

My YA debut - OBSCURA BURNING - is now available!

This story began when a song by Explosions in the Sky conjured the image of a boy walking in the desert. That boy became Kyle Wolfe and he demanded I tell his story, so here it is...

Title: Obscura Burning
Author: Suzanne van Rooyen
Genre: YA science fiction with LGBT themes
Publisher: Etopia Press


The world's going to end in fire … and it's all Kyle's fault.

Kyle Wolfe's world is about to crash and burn. Just weeks away from graduation, a fire kills Kyle's two best friends and leaves him permanently scarred. A fire that Kyle accidentally set the night he cheated on his boyfriend Danny with their female friend, Shira. That same day, a strange new planet, Obscura, appears in the sky. And suddenly Kyle's friends aren't all that dead anymore.

Each time Kyle goes to sleep, he awakens to two different realities. In one, his boyfriend Danny is still alive, but Shira is dead. In the other, it's Shira who's alive...and now they're friends with benefits. Shifting between realities is slowly killing him, and he's not the only one dying. The world is dying with him. He's pretty sure Obscura has something to do with it, but with his parents' marriage imploding and realities shifting each time he closes his eyes, Kyle has problems enough without being the one in charge of saving the world...

Obscura Burning is currently available on Amazon and will soon be available on Barnes&Noble.
