Ahhh! Today is publication day for my YA debut novel, DARK DAYS! It’s finally here! The book is out worldwide with Sky Pony Press in hardcover and ebook, and in audio edition with Audible Studios.

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR DARK DAYS:

  • Dark Days was a pleasure for me to read; I was never disappointed, only thrilled with new developments and Sia’s determination to live her life. With a nice, low page count, there is no reason for this book to not be on your to-read list.” — Ashleigh, Bookseller

  • “Ormand’s writing is seamless and perfectly paced.” — G.R. Mannering, author of Roses

  • Dark Days is a fast, entertaining, adrenaline-packed read. . . . The characters’ situation seems impossible, which kept me flipping pages furiously to discover how it would all end.” — Kendra Leighton, author of Glimpse

  • “One of my favorite aspects of the book was that, instead of the usual chapter count, each chapter title is a countdown to how many days Sia and her sector have left before the machines come to destroy everything. This was a brilliant way to channel Sia’s fear and desperation into the reader.” — Michele at A Belle’s Tales

     

  • Dark Days is one of the most unique and fresh dystopia novels I have ever read. I loved every single second of it.” — Kayleigh at K-Books
