Calan: The Psion Factor Son

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings):
Ajha Lann, a dawning psion grew up under the wing of an older girl. Together they scrounged for food and avoided capture by the gangers in the ruins of Farringay. Left on her own when Mikki is captured by gangers, the voices in her head seemed to get louder but one presence is stronger than the others. It gives her hope of something better for her future.
Calan Narcaza’s mother, the former Michelle Marlow was born in the ruins Farringay outside the Starport Compound. Little had changed since his father went to Earth to find Chelle and claim her as his mate. Calan knows the dangers of after the alien war that devastated Earth, but he has felt Ajha Lann reaching out to him from several years. He knew that for her to reach him over such interstellar distance could only mean that she was his psion mate.
His brother Jamerin brings Calan to Earth in his starship, though he is skeptical about leaving his baby brother on his own. Then they find a cyborg in stasis at the industrial complex that Calan bought to give refuge to the people struggling to survive in the city ruins. They wake him.
Calan and cyborg Rax Ven become allies building the Refuge together and facing off with the Overlords and gangers in a final showdown.
Why did you write this book?
Calan, is the next book in the Aledan Series which follows the Narcaza family from the meeting of his parents and their lives together through their having children. Book Five was about their first two children and this one is about their youngest. While the books are related, there is enough information in each one about what happened before so that they can be read as standalones. The series is part romance, part family saga, and part space opera with paranormal elements.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Science Fiction Romance
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Viktor Mandrake and actually all the heroes Mandrake Company Series

His Earth Maiden, new science fiction romance by NYT Bestseller Michelle M Pillow @MichellePillow #RLFblog #scifi #pnrMichelle M Pillow, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book. Sail along with space pirates in the new sci fi romance installment of the Space Lords series: His Earth Maiden by NYT and USAT Bestseller Michelle M Pillow.

His Earth Maiden by Michelle M Pillow

Genre Science Fiction Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Former elite Federation soldier, now turned space pirate, Jackson Burke has done his best to turn his life around—for the better. He isn’t prepared when fate leaves a woman’s safety totally in his hands. Since heroes don’t leave a damsel in distress—and despite being outlaw pirates, the crew considers themselves the good guys—Jackson assumes responsibility for the beauty. It’s enough that his ship is held together by rust and sheer will, now he’s got to keep this good guy thing straight and not give into the urges the sassy female brings out in him. Raisa is everything a man could want and for some reason she seems to like him, rough edges and all, but he’s on the Federation’s wanted list and they aren’t known to back down.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?…
Yes. Over the course of my career I’ve published in almost every romance genre: Science Fiction, Futuristic, Paranormal, Shifter, Vampire, Ghost, Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Parallel Universe/Alternate Reality, Historical, and ChickLit. I also just released my third Cozy Paranormal Mystery.
How do you come up with ideas?…
Getting out and living life is one of the best ways to be inspired with ideas. They’re always floating around me waiting to be plucked. Some of the best ideas happen when you’re not looking for them. And, the experience of doing can inform the writing and make it stronger.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?…
With the actual craft? World building. It’s fun to take my research, experiences, and imagination and create something new out of it. If I know the world, then I can know who might live in that world, and what might happen to them. It’s the foundation for everything.
When did you write your first book?…
My first book was published in 2004, so over 15 years now. When I started I honestly thought I would only write historical romances. My first book published was a Regency ghost story romance (The Mists of Midnight, now re-titled Forget Me Not).
It was after that book released that the editors contacted me because they wanted authors to fill out their Sci Fi Romance list. I agreed but was convinced I was not a sci fi writer. I was a historical writer. I laugh at younger me now. I still love historicals and I use history to infuse my worlds, but I am most definitely a sci fi writer (among other genres). That first sci fi series, Dragon Lords, is part of one of my most popular series collections, the Qurilixen World. Space Lords: His Earth Maiden, my newest futuristic space pirate book, is part of that world.

FUN

Leather or lace? yoga pants
Black or red? black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? cotton
Ocean or mountains? ocean
City life or country life? edge of town, so best of both
Party life or evening at home? evening at home
Dogs or cats? all the animals

Meet Tabitha from the Detours in Time series by Pamela Schloesser Canepa, @PamSCanepa1 #RLFblog #scifiWelcome Tabitha, from Detours in Time and Undercurrents in Time, a new Sci-fi, time travel series with a hint of sweet romance.
Tabitha
Age: 30
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Asheville, NC
Profession: Gallery assistant, art display coordinator
Ethnicity: German and Swedish
Species (for scifi/fantasy characters): Human
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
Tabitha, also known as Pinky, is about 5’2, 110 lbs and tans very easily, though not considered dark-skinned. Her hair is always long, a little past the shoulders and could be called brown, with honey highlights.
Please tell us a little about your character.
Tabitha is stubborn, independent, and knows a good thing when she sees it. She hates being told what to do, however, she and Milt, the other main character, have entirely different skillsets. She is a survivor and works very hard, with dreams of being an artist, and formerly, of being a professional dancer. She had once been a student at the Baltimore School of Dance, until an injury led her to instead pursue an Art degree. While pursuing her degree, she worked cleaning university offices at several schools, which is where she met Dr. Milton Braddock.
Who is the significant other in your character’s life?
Dr. Milt Braddock, who was, at one time, her employer but becomes much more.
How does your heroine dress?
She dresses pretty casually. Her go-to outfit is jeans, Chucks sneakers, and a band t-shirt with a casual jacket, usually denim. However, she can clean up pretty well, if invited somewhere fancy. Her hair is usually loose, though sometimes it is in a ponytail.
What is your character’s viewpoint on wealth?
She would say it is not necessary. She never had much of it but worked for everything she has. Her family was pretty much middle class; both parents worked. They helped her through college the first time, until she changed her major. Tabitha would say that there is nothing wrong with wealth, when one has worked for it. However, no one should look down on those who lack it, because you never know what circumstances got them there.
What is your character’s family like?
She loves her family. Her parents are gone, though. They both passed away at the same time, together, in an airplane crash. Then, there’s her younger brother. She loves him and would do almost anything to help him. He has, at times, been a lost soul. It’s the only reason they are not close now despite being really close as kids. He did not react well to the loss of their parents a few years before.
What is your heroine’s biggest personal flaw?
My heroine, Tabitha is a little hot-tempered, however, her biggest flaw is sometimes she doesn’t think before she speaks. She is a little opinionated at times. It’s something she has had to work on, considering the places she has been and the things she has seen recently….but that is a story for another time.
How does your character handle challenges?
Tabitha’s adulthood has brought a lot of changes to her life, some of them quite challenging. She always faces up to the challenges; having said that, she is not one to gloss over how she is feeling. She will not hide her emotions and considers it downright unhealthy to do so. She will go through what she must, feel what she is feeling, and then come out on the other side of the issue. Tabitha will always get through the hard times.
Does your character see moral matters as black and white or shades of gray?
Tabitha follows a golden rule: Do not hurt others if there is another way. The question was brought up to her in a college class: Would you do anything to protect a family member? In other words, do the means justify an end? Her answer was no. It surprises people because she is considered hot-tempered. She believes there is almost always a better way and tries to take the high road. Would she kill another person to protect a family member? No. She would say that with our thinking capacities as humans it is our duty to find another way. Some call her too idealistic. However, she would not hesitate to throw a punch to protect herself or someone she loves. I think it makes perfect sense.

About Your Writer: Questions for your character to answer about you.

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer at least four of these questions. Questions with more than one point should be considered one question. You may answer as many more as you like.
Why do you think your writer chose to write about you?
I think she created me because I am unlike her in many ways, maybe I am a part of her that she never let out. You know, the opinionated, loud-mouth girl without a filter. That’s really not like her.
Was there anything your writer discovered about you that was a surprise to one or both of you?
She discovered how important family is to me. I don’t think I surprised her too much, because she’s that way, too. She gave me all these contrasting traits. I suppose that’s because I am moody. Nothing wrong with that!
Why do you think your writer loves to write?
I think she likes to explore the many contingencies that can create an outcome. Sci-fi really allows that, especially with time travel stories. Perhaps she likes to create worlds and see things through the eyes of a character that is unlike herself.
