Question of the Week

Q: Did you have a webpage dedicated to the clans with a picture and a description for each character? I tried to find it recently and came up with nothing. Does it still exist or is it just really hard to find?

A: The clans page was taken down for a couple of reasons. First, the blog was in dire need of being streamlined. With over 40 books and a new series coming out, something had to go. The clans page had the added issue of using old stock photos from a site that no longer exists (and hasn't, for several years). Though I did pay for the use of those pictures, it might have been hard to prove so, thus opening up the threat of legal issues.

Thanks for the question!

Do you have a question for me? If so, leave it in the comments section, and I might answer it in a future blog.

Please note, I may not answer some questions because they could give away some upcoming plots in future books.

Not of This World: A Question of Control




He regarded her with those silvery starburst eyes, his expression stern. “Put your hands where I told you to keep them.”

“But I feel so exposed,” she complained while she reached for the bars again. Even with her discomfort, she moved to his dictates. She felt as helpless as a marionette in the hands of the puppet master, and the vulnerability excited her.

“That’s all right, though.” He smiled at her, stroking light fingers up and down her splayed inner thighs. “It’s fine to be anxious while I look at you. It’s all right to be nervous as I study your lovely secrets. You will allow it anyway, because it’s what I want. And what you desire most is whatever I wish of you. Isn’t that right?”

He was in her head, flipping all her switches as no other man had managed. Somehow Kren’s calm handling mixed with that underlying power made her bend to his will. She cursed the authority she’d given him even as she thrilled to it.

He was her savior, but she was his salvation.

Jeannie Gardner escapes from her captors’ clutches only to find herself trapped on a planet far from Earth. When she is discovered by a muscle-bound warrior, she must prove to him, and the Council of Elders, that she is not a creature set free from a lab, but a sentient being from another planet.

If she succeeds, they will send her home. If she fails, she will be executed.

Risnar warrior Kren Bolep is duty bound to protect his village from the Monsuda and their creations. But this small pink-skinned female is different, special. As the bond between them grows, Jeannie’s vulnerability invokes Kren’s protective instincts, and he vows to uncover the truth and secure her future.

But there is a bigger threat looming. The Monsuda are coming to get Jeannie, and they’ll use whatever means necessary. When Jeannie is taken, Kren is forced to choose—disobey the Elders and place his people in danger, or lose the only person who makes him feel whole.

Question of the Week

Q: So we all know that gurluck is basically the worst slur you can call a Kalquorian because of what it means. I'm wondering if the Kalquorians who know English would recognize the phrase "motherfucker" as a literal translation and consider it equally offensive.

A: Absolutely they would. So if you swear like a sailor without thinking about it (as I do), I suggest paying attention to that when you're around those guys. Let's be safe out there.

Thanks for the question!
