The Next Big Thing - Another Night, Another Planet

I was tagged to participate in this blog challenge a while back, and introduced you to Alien Adoration here. I am still working on this story. Both Barbara Elsborg and Jennifer Lane tagged me this week, so I decided to reveal a bit about another work-in-progress.

I present to you...

Another Night, Another Planet

What is the working title of your book?

That would be Another Night, Another Planet.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I was asked to write a story that combines both the 1Night Stand and Elatia lines from Decadent Publishing. I thought about it for a few days and this is the story that came to mind.

What genre does your book fall under?

It's erotic science fiction romance.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Nate - Adam Rodriguez
Ava - Zooey Deschanel

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Madame Eve brings together two people who have given up on finding a serious releationship, but with the help of the Adamos of Elatia, can she convince them that true love can be found on another planet?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

This story will be submitted to Decadent Publishing.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I'm only half-way through the first draft.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I don't like to compare my work with other authors. This story is similar to my other 1Night Stand stories, yet different.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I was asked to write it, and I'm not sure where the idea came from before it popped into my head. After reading Dead or Alive by LJ Garland, and many science fiction romance stories by DL Jackson, I was inspired to put a bit more action into this story, so I added a chase scene in the beginning. That was fun to write. :)

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Even though the characters are futuristic and some live off planet, they experience real world issues like rejection and discrimination due to class and heritage. Ava comes from a low class family, unable to afford to further her education. Stuck in dead-end jobs, she catches a break, finding a housekeeping position on the Mother Traveler. She is left with little time to date on Earth, and any guests on the ship who show an interest are quick to toss her out as soon as she puts out. Nate is a space cowboy, travelling the universe without a planet to call home. No one wanted him as a baby, and with his mixed ancestry, no species will claim him as their own.

And now to finish. :)

Bio: Jessica Subject started writing to encourage her daughter to read. Now she writes to keep herself grounded. Although she reads many genres, she enjoys writing Science Fiction Romance the most and believes everyone in the universe deserves a happily ever after. She lives Southwestern Ontario, Canada with her husband and two kids and loves to hear from anyone who has enjoyed her stories.
