STARRED review from Library Journal!


January 2017


2017 is off to a great start with a STARRED review for Love And Gravity from Library Journal! Woohoo! *happy dance* 🙂

“This is the story of an impossible affair between present-day San Francisco cello prodigy Andrea Louviere and a young Isaac Newton. More than a romance, this tale is an enigma and a conundrum. Andrea’s childhood playing magically opens up a crack in space and time. The crack quickly closes but not before she meets Isaac on the other side. As this phenomenon repeats itself over the years, Andrea—now a young woman—begins to receive written messages from Isaac, delivered in the present. When she gets a note from her future self, things really get interesting. With the help of her erstwhile present-day boyfriend Nate, Andrea is able to understand the logic behind the doorway to the past. She boldly steps through the doorway, and her romance with Isaac is truly ignited.
The novel describes a Möbius strip of interrelated actions that circle back upon themselves in space and time. Sotto’s (Before Ever After) remarkable story keeps the reader guessing until the very end.
Verdict  The imaginative blend of romance, history, and paranormal is compulsively readable, hits all the romantic high notes, and provides a novel explanation for the development of calculus; highly recommended.”

Santa came early!


December 2016


OMG. Look what I found under the tree! Thank you soooo much SARAH ADDISON ALLEN for your lovely praise about Love and Gravity! *happy dance*

“Thoughtful, magical, and alive with romantic alchemy, Love and Gravity is a rare gem of a book, both intellectual and beautiful.  Samantha Sotto has constructed a charming plot, full of clever moving pieces, mythology and yes, physics.  Samantha is definitely one to watch.”

Pandora and Pages!


September 2016


Just got back from Tokyo and came home to a whirlwind week. I want to send out a HUGE thanks to Pandora for including me in their “I Am We Are Unique” book. It was an honor to be a part of such an inspiring project for women.

And today — I woke up to samples of the interior design of the pages of Love and Gravity in my inbox! I hope you love them as much as I do.Pandora Excerpt Pandora Event Pandora BookScreen Shot 2016-09-22 at 9.04.33 AM Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 9.03.27 AM
