A sci-fi Beauty and the Beast! #scifi #beautyandthebeast #alienromance

#1 EDEN
Imprisoned for brutal crimes against his wardens, Fly was taken from his planet Itor and transported to an uninhabited world alongside other criminals. Full of mutiny, anger and a desire for revenge the transportation was never going to be successful and Fly became the only survivor when the craft crashed.

Then the human ship arrived - and Jenny.

With a malfunctioning spacecraft she was in for a fight for her life, but her problems were only just beginning when her crewmates abandon her on Eden.

Jenny's on her own... or so she thinks.

#2 HUNTED

‘I’m scared’, Fly had said. He was never scared. He was her hero. Her rugged hero made up from all the romance books she’d read. Big, bold and beautiful—in an alien kind of way.
Jenny's from Earth. Fly's from Itor. By a quirk of fate they met. She tamed him and they fell in love. They live idyllic lives in a protected corner of the world away from the wolf-like people and savage tribes of Neanderthals, and when Jenny discovers she…

Trashy novel alert! Last chance to buy for 99cents on Amazon #romcom #chicklit #lol #99c #wwbb

What do the words 'trashy novel' mean to you?
I've always thought the answer was gratuitous sex scenes amongst shallow characters, but others have told me it's an insignificant plot.
I Googled the answer and (palpitations!) it brought up chick lit. Chick lit! Surely not! Other answers are a formulaic book written for scandal or simply a badly-written book. It seems no one really knows the true answer. Maybe it's an easy-reading book that you've enjoyed?
When I brought up this question with a group of writers, a gentleman answered: ‘Any book written by a female.’
Yeah, I know, idiot.

So the question is still out there—what constitutes a trashy novel?
Meanwhile, my own trashy, chick lit novel (with no gratuitous sex scenes or insignificant plot) is only 99c to buy all through March.

The funniest sex scene ever! ‘Is it in?’ she asked. Half price British romantic comedy all through March! 99 cents!

Charlotte (Charlie) Wallis dreams of being a journalist and being part of a family unit. Life hasn’t been easy for her—born to a junkie mother and brought up in a children’s home—she craves a family life, but her current boyfriend has palpitations at the mention of commitment, and Charlie’s beginning to believe she’s going to be the office gofer forever.

Then she hears of a possible Jack the Ripper style story, which has London in its gruesome grip. Bodies aren’t showing up even though prostitutes are going missing at a rate of one a month, and the police are stumped.

Without telling anyone, Charlie dons her best fishnet stockings and hits the streets pretending to be a prostitute in the aid of securing a story to further her career.

But seeing her new boss, Ben Middleton, kerb crawling was the last thing she expected. Then Ben lets her into his secret, and she not only becom…

Where were all the characters before you became a writer?

Life before characters
Life, ‘as we know it’, before I became a writer was a dark, messed up place. Weird people came to me in my head with lives that demanded to live. They’d talk to me about wanting to be ‘set free’ and I had no clue as to who they were or why they were in my mind.

My imaginary friends drove my mum to despair!
I tried to lead a normal life as I grew up: school, college, work, marriage, kids, work. But then I discovered I could write about these weird people and give themthe life they craved.
My first shot at it was awful. OMG awful, in fact. I think it even began ‘It was a dark, stormy night’ to give you an idea of how awful it was. That book won't ever see the light of day! Thank God, I say.
There was another weird person in my head who used to come to me in dreams. He was scary, sexy, dangerous and an enigma until I got to know him. The first night I dreamed about him I woke up with the cliché pounding heart and a sweaty bod. But in the next dream he apologised for…

Like an #alphamale? Check out Eden and its sequel Hunted in this #scifi romance

Image
Imagine yourself stranded. No way of communicating, no shelter. No food. Now imagine that place is another planet. Then you realise you're not alone...
Astronaut Jenny found herself abandoned on Eden after a miscommunication failure with her crew. From 2056 where technology ruled and hard work was left to robots, she was forced to go back to basics and live a pre-historic life.
Unfortunately, a lone alien had crash-landed previously and was already living such a life.
Bad news for Jenny. Good news for him.
Eden begs the simple question: How far would you go to survive?

Author note: Eden can be read as a stand alone novel, however, Hunted follows on from Eden so needs to be read after Eden.

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the road and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s window screen smash as a tree branch pierced through and impaled her to her seat. No one heard her scream.
But that moment was the beginning of Julie’s life.
