The Sunday Spotlight with Guest Author Louise Wise


The Sunday Spotlight

Yesterday author, Louise Wise shared her two fabulous Chick Lit Novels with us, and today she's back with something completely different, a wondrous Sci-Fi advendture called Eden.


Stranded, but not alone. You only wish you were.


Robinson and Crusoe, The Blue Lagoon, Castaway — I’d read the books and seen the movies. Never thought I’d have my own story to tell, and anyway, you’d think an astronaut would be prepared for such an eventuality, wouldn’t you? We’re trained over months, years, in fact. We’re picked especially for our strong mental state. But we’re human just like you. We have emotions just like you. We have fears just like you. The only difference is we learn to control them. 

There were just three of us. Bodie, Matt and myself, Jenny, and we were all on our way to the first manned mission outside the solar system. To a planet that was similar to Earth in size and makeup.

We flew in our respective spacepods, leaving  the mother ship in orbit around Eden, and took our first steps on the planet that had been untouched by humans. Our mission was to imbed probes at various premarked sites, and collect samples such as rocks, plants, water, you know the mundane, astronauty things before heading back.
 


 



But, how can I explain? No training can prepare you for the momentous feelings we were feeling. A sky with two suns, a perpetual twilight with eight moons, a wondrous alien terrain. It was surreal.



On our way to insert the probes, we found an alien spaceship; deserves its own sentence really: We found an alien spaceship. It was easy to tell it had been there a long time because vegetation had started to grow over it and some of it was covered completely. There was an unspoken agreement between us when we abandoned our duties to explore it further.



That’s when it all went wrong. We’d let our human emotions take over. A fatal error.



I found a gap in the side of the spacecraft that was big enough for me to crawl through. Bodie was lacklustre in disallowing it, I think he wanted to find out what it was like inside just as much as me. I found bodies. Countless alien bodies. Most were decapitated. But one, one, was very much alive.



It was a bit of a blank after that. I was dragged back outside, and I remember my throat being constricted and lights dancing behind my eyes. Then I woke to Bodie and Matt not being there and I was on my own.




Alone on an unknown planet.



The alien and my so-called colleagues had gone. I guessed the alien had killed them and had travelled back to Taurus in one of the buggies. Taurus would have killed it instantly, so its attempt to flee ended then and there.



I was alone. Completely alone.



Read my full story in Eden. But before you go — can I just say please don’t judge me. 



You’d do the same,

 Jenny.

Book Blitz & Excerpt! Roxanne Desired (Book 2 in the Prime Wolf Series) by Gena D Lutz

A last minute post...


Welcome to

The Book Blitz

for

Roxanne Desired 
(Book 2 in the Prime Wolf Series)

by

Gena D Lutz


Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours


Synopsis:

Waking up fur covered and fanged isn't the easiest thing for a girl to deal with. Unfortunately, for Roxanne Delaney, that is her new reality. The only upside is finding herself the bondmate to one hot and sexy werewolf, Nathan Hayes. The downside; learning to adapt to a primal element that craves the rending of flesh and the oh-so-sweet taste of blood. Will this shy waitress-turned-wolf rise to the challenges of this new life—one that is now littered with otherworldly creatures hell-bent on destroying her and the people she cares for? Or will the pressures of a new-found love and difficult battles prove too much for Roxanne to handle?


Author Bio:


Gena D. Lutz lives in the blistering heat of Arizona with her husband and four kids and two very high maintenance dogs, a Chihuahua and Australian Shepard. When she is not busy writing, Lutz can be found watching the classics, like Charmed and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, marathon style. Lutz enjoys reading, riding horses, playing poker and looks forward to the day she can travel the world.

Excerpt:

I threw the pillow off to the side and jumped out of bed. The small nap that Nathan had forced me to take had done wonders and I was feeling good as new; that was if you didn’t count the headache quickly forming from Paige’s warm-up music. I walked past the handsome hunk of mine and opened the bedroom door wide. I exited the room without explanation. Nathan didn’t complain, just poked his head around the jam, watching my retreat. I stopped in front of the entryway of the room right next door to ours and began to pound my fist hard against it. When my knock received no answer, I brought my fist up and pounded again. This time, the door flew open, revealing an irate she-wolf. Her body was covered in sweat, a large round stain forming from the neck of her wife beater and expanding out and down in between a pair of firmly rounded breasts. She brought her arm up, her hands adorned with boxing gloves, and wiped the sweat from her hairline.
“What the fuck is it?” Paige spat, the rims of her eyes opening wide when she recognized which wolf was at her door. She looked at me with such rage in her eyes that I thought I would spontaneously combust into flames where I stood. I had to stop myself from going pale faced. I willed that from happening with all my might. I wasn’t going to allow this Alpha wolf to have domination over me. I was way too pissed off for that.
“Show the rest of the house some common courtesy by turning that god-awful music of yours down,” I growled.
Paige jerked her chin up and crossed her arms. “And if I don’t?”
Well hell. That was a good question. What could I do if she decided to slam the door right in my face?
“The music is extremely loud, Paige. How about giving us all a break?” Nathan said from behind me.
I hadn’t heard him walk up. I whipped around shoving my finger at him. I was acting like a crazy person. I knew that. However, for some reason I didn’t give two shits about it.
“I have this handled.” I said with a low growl.
“Hi, Nathan.” Paige purred over me. “I will turn the volume down right away.” She pinned him with a smoldering look, a look that made my fingers tingle in want of ripping those green peepers out of their damn sockets.

“But, only because you asked so nicely,” she added before slamming the door in my face.



Enjoy!
