Welcome Noth Zobor

Interview with an Alien
Noth Zobor of the planet Artanos has stopped by for a quick interview.  I’m excited to catch up with him and see how his happily ever after is going.
Hi, Doctor Zobor. Nice to have you here with me today. I hope the trip didn’t take too long?
It is my pleasure to visit my mate’s home planet. We have not been back to Earth in nearly a grelf and the children are quite excited to visit their grandparents and to eat at McDonald’s.  
Worth the trip from anywhere, huh?
The journey takes approximately one and a half of your Earth days, as we travel through four-dimensional space tunnels. The little ones do get somewhat… wild, but we allow them to play your game Minecraft on their handheld electronic devices. They are obsessed with that ridiculous program for some reason.
Oh, I hear ya!  It looks like it has 1980’s Atari graphics! I can’t figure it out either.
Anyway, Noth—may I call you Noth?
Of course you may. You named me, after all.
Right. Sorry if you aren’t a fan. An alien named Fred just didn’t seem to work.
I understand.
So, Noth, I was hoping you could update us on Stella since she couldn’t be here. How is your relationship these days?
Excellent!  I have read studies concerning relationships that develop during stressful situations. It seems they are more likely to fail over time. I believe that because Stella and I fell in love prior to the abduction of the Earth women, such was not the case for us. Also, I will do everything in my power to keep her happy.
From your mouth to every Earth guy’s ear, buddy.
My mouth to… what was that?  You know I am not accustomed to all of your Earth phrases.  Please clarify.
Oops!  Sorry.  Just all guys should have your woman-pleasing mentality, is all.  Anyway, I’m so glad to hear things are going well!  I’d hate to have set you two up, only to see it end in an ugly intergalactic divorce a few grelf down the road.
That is not possible. Stella is my entire world. I am not whole without her.
Aww. So sweet.  Sometimes, I wish a hot alien would come and take me away. That, or a hot Calgon bath. Maybe both.  Speaking of alien’s coming to Earth, are the Artanian’s still recruiting for their breeding program?
We are and—at the risk of sounding like a kleptshel, I mean… a salesperson—might I endorse the program for a nano?
Go right ahead.
Thank you. Our Artanian Embassy is currently accepting applications for our multifaceted breeding program. We need both surrogates willing to be implanted with Artanian embryos, as well as females interested in meeting Artanian males for long-term relationships. For the surrogates, food, lodging, and all necessary comforts will be provided, and all volunteers will receive a lump sum of deet-mil krobek paid in your mineral gold.
Wow. That’s about five times the going rate here on Earth—plus those women can brag they lived off-planet for about a year. Not a bad gig. Now, what about the mail-order bride thing Stella cooked up?  Is that still going on?
Oh, indeed. It is exceptionally popular. It seems that the unmated males of our planet are quite interested in finding companions from Earth. There is still quite a demand, and luckily a large number of Earth females have connected with mates from our planet after the initial introductory phase.
Do you guys have your own Artanian Singles dot com thing going on? Hyperspeed dating?
Artanian… singles?  I do not understand these questions.
Forget it. Well, Noth, I’m thrilled to know things are still sexy with you and Stella. It’s hard to keep the fire burning after kids. You have to make an effort.
My sister, Ekka, and I trade off with the children to have a “date night” as Stella calls it.
See?  That’s what I mean. Buy her some flowers once in a while, that sort of thing.
Stella prefers the sex toys.
Yeah.  She would.  Well, on that note, Noth, live long and—no, that’s not right. Anyway, take care of yourself, and maybe I’ll catch you again later. Peace out.
[Noth gives me a weird look and a confused shake of his head before mimicking the V of my pointer and middle fingers.]
Peace… out, Kimber.

Kimber Vale writes erotic romance of all stripes.  Her sci-fi novel, Star Catcher, will be available from Liquid Silver Books on June 3, 2013.  Come for the sex.  Stay for the story.

Dancing in the Flame by Ann Gimble

Hi there. I’m Ann Gimpel, author of Dancing in the Flame, a post-apocalyptic paranormal romance novella. With me today are Keira and Barrett. I’ll be asking them a few questions so they can tell you a little bit about themselves.
For Keira: What was it like to live in a Were bordello?
Hideous. I can’t even begin to describe it. It was like being a permanent second class citizen. Before I turned 18, the Weres had me working in the kitchens and waiting on them. They didn’t pay me anything then, beyond keeping a roof over my head and feeding me. Once I was old enough to turn tricks, I did get to keep some of the money I earned, but they charged me for my food, so it was impossible to earn enough to buy my indenture bond. I figured I’d be stuck hooking for them forever. See, they had this bracelet around my upper arm. It was a magical bracelet and I couldn’t get it off. They used it to track me and control me. I was depressed a lot of the time. In fact, the only bright spots in my life were when I visited Barrett’s magician supply shop. (Keira reaches out a hand. Barrett takes it.)
For Barrett: What did you feel when you first saw Keira in your magician supply shop?
(Drapes an arm around Keira and pulls her against him.) I was curious about her. Something about her didn’t ring true when I used my magic to try to figure out just what she was. I didn’t realize it at first, but that damned Were bracelet muted her power. Beyond that, she was such a lovely creature, I really wanted to get to know her better. I felt incredibly drawn to her. When she scooted out of my shop as if all the dogs of hell were nipping at her heels, I just had to follow her. We’d finally had a conversation and I wanted to talk with her some more.
For Keira: If you’d have been free, what would you have done with your life?
That’s a really, really difficult question. If I’d known who I truly was, and been free, I would have spent my early years preparing to lead my people. If I’d simply been free, but still had no idea about my Sidhe birthright, I probably would have scrabbled for existence like nearly everyone else. There wasn’t much left after ten years of war. I suppose I might have lived with the fairies and my friend, Renn.
For Barrett: What you felt when Caelin, the Daoine Sidhe leader asked you to rescue Keira? And you’d really have renounced if you’d have known that Caelin attempted to buy her from the were bordello?
(Barrett’s jaw sets into a hard line. His eyes flash annoyance.) Keep in mind I’ve known Caelin for a very long time, hundreds of years. That man has always played his cards close to his chest. I knew there were things he wasn’t telling me, but I was willing to play along and do my part to get Keira away from her captors. I hate the Weres. They’re animalistic bastards. If I could, I’d like to free all their indentured servants. Weres are the only magic wielders who do that sort of thing. Plus, I’ll admit I was looking forward to getting closer to Keira.
The other point you brought up, about Caelin not bothering to tell me he’d offered to buy her bond, would have been a deal-breaker. As it was, I walked into a dangerous situation. Caelin’s behind-the-scenes maneuvering made it all the more precarious. He knew I wouldn’t go if he told me everything, so he kept his mouth shut.
For Keira: How is like to think all your life that you don’t have magic just to discover that you probably are one of the most powerful woman in the world?
To be honest with you, I’m still coming to terms with that. It’s only been a very short time since Barrett rescued me from the Weres and Caelin removed the bracelet. Most days, I don’t feel fit to rule anyone, but then I remind myself if I learn my people’s history and work on my magic, maybe the day will come when I can call myself a queen, and wear the title proudly. (Keira cocks her head to one side and smiles.) Right now, I feel sort of like a fake, but everyone has been so nice, it warms my heart.
For Barrett: What made you fall in love with Keira?
The easy answer is her incredible beauty, but I’ve had stunning women walk into my life before and have left them be. No, the reason I fell in love with Keira is she has a beautiful soul. There’s something na├»ve and untouched about her that makes me want to take care of her and protect her from all the evils in the world. When I found out who she really was, I experienced immense conflict. On the one hand, I was happy for our people. On the other, I was devastated because I was certain I could never share her life.
(Taps breastbone.) Her spirit resonates right here. She fits with me, like the life’s partner I’ve hunted for, but never found.
Keira: “Aw, thanks, love. I feel the same way about you.” She turns her face up for a kiss.
Ann: Thanks, guys, that was very sweet. You know, I often get asked two questions about this book. One revolves around what happened to the humans after the atomic blasts. The other is who actually killed Queen Ivanne. Let me address them and then we’ll be done here.
One of the problems with novella length fiction is there are always a few unanswered questions. I suppose there should have been piles of human bodies scattered about, in varying stages of decomposition, after they died from radiation poisoning. An earlier version of DITF had something like that, but my publisher vetoed it as not appropriate in a romance story. We settled for heaps of trash.
Right along with Caelin and Barrett, I believe the Weres poisoned Ivanne. But they haven’t fessed up, so that’s something we’ll probably never know. The important thing is the Sidhe have a queen again. Once the babies start coming, hopefully the royal line won’t be in danger of dying out.
Thanks so much, Keira and Barrett, for coming along today for this interview.
In unison: Our pleasure!

Mac Rome brings us a special guest.

Eve's Theives set for release 2013 - Peri's Interview



“Spell your name so the graphics people can put it on the screen correctly, please.”

The lanky-looking woman with the long, straight blonde hair flipped it over her shoulder. Her legs were covered by a blanket. “Peri Walker. P-E-R-I W-A-L-K-E-R.”

“Peri. That’s an unusual name for a woman.”

“It’s short for Perpugilliam. It’s a name from some British show. My dad was a fan.”

“What do you do for a living, Peri?”

Peri shifted in chair, looking around the room out of the corner of her eye. “I’m a P.I. – a private investigator.”

“Just look at me,” the interviewer said.

“Sorry,” said Peri.

“That’s all right,” the interviewer said. “So, what’s it like being a woman P.I.?”

“If you mean as compared to being a male P.I., I have no idea; I’ve never been one,” Peri said.

The interviewer laughed.

“Mostly, it’s routine investigations – cheating spouses, insurance investigations, the odd case where a family member feels their late loved one hasn’t gotten justice.” Peri was quiet for a second. “Or it was until recently.” She looked around again.

“We need you to look at me for how the shot will play on TV,” the interviewer said.

“Sorry,” said Peri. “I’ve got to keep an eye out. I never know what I’ll find, or who, or where.”

“And you’re looking for someone,” the interviewer said. “That’s why we’re doing this.”

Peri nodded. “I’m trying to locate victims of a very unusual set of thieves.”

“What’s so unusual about them?”

“It’s what they steal,” Peri said. “They steal things people think can’t be stolen.”

“You mean, like art objects, or well-guarded items?”

“You’re not going to believe my answer,” Peri said.

“Try me,” the interviewer said.

Peri seemed to withdraw within herself. She spoke quietly, but intensely. “We’re dealing with forces beyond the world you know … beyond the world of science, and computers. In layman’s terms, it’s magic, but what we’re dealing with, what I’m fighting, even goes beyond that. This is something that can … bend personal reality, shift it, twist it, and chew up the person it’s attached to in the process. It’s dark, dark magic, and very old. And so are some of its practitioners.”

The interviewer chuckled. “So, are we talking vampires?”

Peri’s gaze froze the interviewer to the core. “I only wish we were.”

“I’m sorry, but you have to admit, this is pretty bizarre sounding,” the interviewer said.

“Try living it,” snapped Peri. “I think we’re done here.”

“What?” the interviewer asked. “But I thought you’d say more about what you wanted.”

“You’re already mocking me, and when I try to explain what – and who – I’m looking for, you’ll laugh me out of the room,” Peri said. “You’ll never run this interview, even if we finish it. You’ll write me off as a nut, and the evil will continue, and this will have gotten me no closer to stopping it, and to finding the people I need to do this. This was a mistake.”

“But please, what is this evil? How ancient are we talking here?”

“I said we’re done,” Peri said. “Thank you, and I apologize for your wasted time.”

The interviewer sighed as she looked back at her cameraman. “All right, I guess we’re done. Let’s head back to the studio.”

(Tape ends.)
