More Good News!

Hey guys! I have some more good news! Yesterday Dreamspinner contracted Be My Alien. The release date is May/June. This is the first book in a series called Moonlit Skies.

This is the first time I've co-authored a book, and it's been a lot of fun. The other author is Julie Lynn Hayes. I first met Julie several months ago when she was the Editor in Chief on Nighttime Dreams.

*Laugh* I don't think RFP nor Julie had even seen a story with tentacles before. As Julie edited Nighttime Wishes and Nighttime Dreams, she became interested in aliens. :) Then she helped with The Harvest:Taken and the scifi bug bit her. *Snicker* She blames me for this. LOL!!! Well, the more we talked, the more the idea of writing something together grew.

And Be My Alien was born.

So, what's the story about? Well, aliens, of course! Fabrintazo, a sexy alien from Trygos, has his dream come true when he finally catches the attention of Vorlod, another male he’s been asking out for a while. When Vorlod accepts, Fabrintazo—Taz, for short—is overjoyed and they embark on their date to Earth.

Taz’s joy soon turns to anguish when he finds out he’s nothing more than a pawn, used by Vorlod in a quest to make another jealous. Abandoned by his date and lost in New York City, Taz stares out at the night sky, afraid and disillusioned.

Reed Hatcher, a boutique owner, literately finds himself knocked off his feet by Taz while meeting a client at the Empire State Building a couple days before Valentine’s Day. Passion simmers between the two as they tentatively come to grasps with each other and their differences... and there are some differences, lol, that show up when Taz is aroused. ;)

Taz, believing he has no way home, wants to stay with Reed on Earth and be his mate. The decision made, Taz and Reed ready themselves for their new life, only to have Vorlod return with every intention of taking Taz back home with him.

Julie and I are working on book #2 in the series. We hope to make this one long enough to go into print. The picture shown is something we came up with until we have a cover for the first book.
