Heyo! S. M. Boyce here. I’m on this cozy blog today as part of my Finding Lichgates Blog Tour. My hosts are so awesome for letting me show you the stories of how some of my fans found Lichgates and the other books in the Grimoire Saga.
So, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the series, I think I should explain what a lichgate is. A lichgate is a portal that ties our world to the terrifying and beautiful world in my Grimoire Saga called Ourea. Lichgates can be found in remote places, and when you walk through a lichgate, the land you cross into is not what you would see if you’d simply walked around the portal.
For many fans, stumbling upon the first book in the Grimoire Saga is much like stumbling through a lichgate. That is why this tour is all about the fans and how they found their first lichgate into the world of the Grimoire Saga.

Meet Robert Zimmermann. This is his Finding Lichgates Story:
I first discovered the book Lichgates almost randomly back in early 2012, through Twitter. I was just starting to explore the world of Indie books, starting my blog, and starting to review the books I read. I don’t recall exactly how I found S.M. Boyce on Twitter, but I’m glad I did. It was probably through following one author, then another, and so on.
I looked into the book a little bit, but fantasy isn’t always my cup of tea and I was hesitant. Eventually though, the book kept popping up on my feed. People I followed seemed to be enjoying it and I was enjoying following Boyce’s Tweets. She always tweeted out great questions to get discussions started and she interacted with potential readers in a great way that not many other authors, even that that time, were doing.
Not too long after this, some little contests started happening and that drew me in a little bit more each time. Intrigued by the author and what I’d heard of the book, I read the first chapter posted on her blog. After that, I NEEDED to read more.
To speed up the story: I read the book in a few days, almost never putting it down, and I was hooked. I was hooked from that first chapter and each chapter after. The characters, the storyline, and the world that Boyce built…it was all so well written and like nothing I’ve ever read before. I needed books two! (I needed book three as well…and four once Boyce announced that the story grew just a bit too much for a trilogy to contain.)
To this day, Lichgates (and the other two released Grimoire Saga books) is always one of the first recommendations I made to someone looking for something new to read. I don’t have many fans who read fantasy (like myself), but I tend to push it on them as well and they eat it up! Lichgates and the Grimoire Saga have done what no other books have been able to do: Turn me into a “fangirl.” Yes, I said it, haha. These books are just that great and memorable, that they’ll stick with me for a long time and will be reread many times.
Once you find your lichgate into the world of Ourea, it’s hard to ever leave…and why would you want to?
