"That’s the beauty of Vander Ark’s writing: he has a wonderful way of making you a part of the story, despite the tone and context. Also, Vander Ark’s poetic prose is hard to resist, making him a must-read."
"I just read a book that knocked my socks off. It is called The Accidental Siren by Jake Vander Ark. The writer’s ability to make you feel twelve years old again was remarkable even when the subject matter turned very, very adult. I highly recommend it."
Author Olivia Hardin
"Jake Vander Ark is one of the only self-published authors that I've read that I believe truly deserves to see a wide release. I've read his books and for the life of me, I can't see why he's not signed to a major publisher. [The Accidental Siren] feels like something that Stephen King would be proud to write these days."

"Vander Ark creates a fast-paced story with beautiful attention to detail, a rare and wonderful achievement few writers can manage."
