Interview/Giveaway: Jessica Subject, author of Alien Adoration


Alien Adoration
Jessica Subject

Erotic dreams fill her with need…

Night after night, Rachel fantasizes about her sexy, playboy neighbor. But in her small town, no one changes, least of all the bad boy next door. But when Luke rescues her not once but twice from disastrous dates, she dares to believe her knight in black leather armor may be the right man for her after all.

Until she learns the truth...

Life on Earth has never been easy for Luke. Stranded as a little boy, he struggled to craft an existence for himself, but he never forgot the first human he met--and he never stopped wanting to see her again. Returning to Hanton, Luke longs for Rachel. Yet, nothing goes as he plans, and Rachel barely notices him. Convincing her he isn't like all the jerks she's dated means telling her the truth, but can she handle it?

Can she overcome her fears, or will she deny her alien adoration and leave him stranded once more?
Today I was lucky enough to have Jessica Subject over for an interview.  It was a lot of fun for me, and I'm super excited to share it with you!  So check it out, and then at the end you can enter the giveaway!

Hey Jessica! Welcome to your first interview at Fictional Candy! I promise not to be too rough with you!

Hi Liz! It’s such a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having me! I’m not worried. Yet. LOL

We’re here today to talk about Alien Adoration. What can you tell us about this book that isn’t in the blurb?

Alien Adoration is an erotic science fiction romance. It was inspired by the song Spaceman by Bif Naked. And while I listened to the song, I imagined a little girl staring out her window, and seeing a little alien boy on the street. This story is what happens when those two children are older and reunited.



Your website says you write contemporary and science fiction romance, which I definitely know to be true. But which is your favorite to write, and which is your favorite to read?

I don’t know if I have a favorite to write, but I generally have more ideas for science fiction romance stories. And on my Kindle and Kobo, I have plenty of both genres, so no favorite there at all. I try to alternate when I’m reading.

I’m particularly interested in the science fiction aspect. How did you first become interested in sci-fi romance? Do you think it is harder to write than contemporary romance?

I’ve always enjoyed the romance aspect in science fiction. In the sci-fi shows I watched as a child, it was always the romance between characters that kept me coming back. And in sci-fi movies, it’s always those that have that extra romantic relationship that make me enjoy them more. I mean, who doesn’t want to know more about what’s going on with Spock and Uhura?
For me, it’s not any harder to write sci-fi. I love creating new worlds and new species. But for every author, it’s different.

Let’s say an alien is coming to kidnap you. Would he be one of your characters, and where would he take you?

I would hope it was one of my characters coming to kidnap me. Then it would be for my own protection, and he would take me somewhere safe. I’d be very worried if it wasn’t one of my characters.

What’s life like for you when you aren’t writing?

It’s pretty boring. I’m usually doing errands, cleaning, doing the laundry, picking up kids from school, or running them around to various places. Though my hubby and I do enjoy our date nights. ;)

In an alternate reality, which book would you want to spend your life in (either yours or someone elses)?

Oh gosh, this is something I’ve never thought about. When thinking of books I’ve read, the first book to come to mind was Barbara Elsborg’s Lucy In The Sky. And if I had to pick one of my own, I would pick Satin Sheets in Space.

What is the best thing about being an author?


It’s always wonderful when a reader tells you how much they enjoy a story that you worked so hard to create.

We’re all adults here, or at least we think we are, right? So do you have a favorite cuss word, and why (or why not!)?

I really have to be careful, as I’m around kids a lot. So, I’ve had to come up with some creative words. One of my hubby’s favorites is fuzzy socksuckers. Even ‘fricken’ is a bad word. But, when it comes right down to it, I say ‘shit’ a lot. 

If someone has never read one of your books, and they can only read one, which one do you recommend?

Oh, gosh, it really depends, because they fall into so many categories. I have GLBT titles, ménages, new adult and erotica. Hmmm, if I had to pick one, it would be my latest release, Alien Adoration.

And lastly, what do you have coming up in the near future to tantalize your readers?

I have two releases coming out in the next couple of months with Decadent Publishing. Another Night, Another Planet is an erotic sci-fi romance that is part of their 1Night Stand and Elatia lines. And Never Gonna Desert You is the second book in the sci-fi/dystopian series, The Underground.

Thanks so much, Jessica, for taking the time to talk to me!

Thank you again for having me, Liz! And thank you all for coming to visit me!

Excerpt


“Need a lift?”
The voice was deep and masculine, one she didn’t hear very often, but would recognize anywhere. Luke. Wonderful! He wouldn’t talk to me before, but now that I’m topless and sopping wet, he notices me.
She circled slowly to stare at the leather-clad figure sitting atop his motorcycle. The visor of his helmet covered most of his face, leaving only his luscious lips and deep, jutting chin, covered in light stubble, exposed. What would they feel like against her lips? Between her legs? Her body tingled.
“Earth to Rachel. Do you need a lift, or should I leave you here in the pouring rain?”
Oh God, he knows my name. Since they’d never actually talked—she’d only heard him greeting his dates—her name on his lips came as a surprise. “Um, yes, I’d appreciate a ride.” On his Harley, and if she was lucky, in his bed. Anywhere. Her romance-first rule didn’t apply to him. He’d already seduced her plenty in her dreams.
Remaining on his bike, he yanked a helmet from his saddlebag and held it out to her. “What happened to your pretty blouse?”
Pretty blouse? He’d seen her earlier? “I….” Fluttering rolled through her stomach. “I don’t want to talk about it.”
She grabbed the helmet from him, fit it over her soaked hair, and buckled the chinstrap. Straddling the seat behind him, she fumbled with her hands, wondering where to place them, no bar behind her to hold on to. Oh, what it would be like to wrap her arms around him, lean against his wide back covered in leather. But what if he didn’t want her to touch him?
Luke pushed off from the curb. “I suggest you hold onto me or you’re going to fall off.”
The bike lurched forward with a roar. She clasped her hands around his waist, her fingers coming together temptingly close to his manhood, cheek pressed to his cowskin jacket. His deep chuckle reverberated across her skin.
“I told you to hang on.”
And she could lean on him forever. Being so close to him with pure raw power between her legs moved her better than any fantasy she had ever created. But what is going to happen when he takes me home? Or will he invite me to his house instead?
She pressed her lips together. Sure, she wanted to know what lay under his tight pants, but she refused to be another conquest. I can’t handle it.
He drove into her driveway too soon, leaning the bike over enough for her to slip off. She removed the helmet and handed it back to him. “Thank you. I appreciate the ride.”
Tucking the helmet away, he nodded. “You want to come over for coffee?”
That and more. Though she refused to go anywhere in her state of disarray. “Um, no, I’m kind of wet.”
“Another time, then?”
She nodded. Shit, why did I say no? They could strip down together and have all kinds of fun. But he drove away before she had a chance to retract her words.

  2. Ah, this will be fun! I always thought Bert on Sesame Street had the coolest reaction...when the Martian guys (you know, the ones who say "yep yep") showed up and Ernie freaked out, he said "Great! I'll make 'em some oatmeal." Works for me....

  3. Honestly, I'd assume I was dreaming or saw something else and close the curtains. I'm not too adventurous in real life, so it's fun to read about characters who are.

  4. Great interview, ladies. Love the trailer--esp. the ending. LOL Jess, you know what I think about alien abductions. I am so interested in seeing the romance between Uhura & Spock play out. Best wishes on Alien Adoration and your next releases.

  5. I might be a fearful If I saw a alien outside.

  6. I couldn't find your cuss words, they are evidently so natural and unshocking that they didn't register. And to all those 'throw away stuff you had to do' you know the life stuff. I had to pretty much give them up entirely. I barely have time to walk my dog, which reminds me, I need to do that now.

    This book sounds wonderful

  7. It does sound great, I can't wait to read it. Thanks for coming by :)

  9. Thanks Diane! And thank you for coming by :) I appreciate it!

  10. I can't even imagine what I'd think, I'm the one who doesn't go to sleep because I'm sure the shadow is a ghost, or something horrible anyway. Thanks for stopping by and good luck on the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hey, maybe aliens actually do like oatmeal. You never know til you try, right?

    ReplyDelete
  12. No problem! It was a lot of fun getting to know you :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I just hope that if I got curious, it wouldn't kill me!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would hope with dignity and respect, unless the alien is carrying a weapon in which case I run!! :D

    LOL Oh, gosh, those aliens used to scare me. I'll have to remember the oatmeal though. :)

  16. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:35 PM

    Even if I closed the curtains, I'd still peek out. Couldn't help myself. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:36 PM

    Liz, I'm the same way. Can't sleep unless I know for sure what a noise or a shadow is from. :)

  18. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:37 PM

    Thanks, Diane! JoAnne did a wonderful job with the trailer. :) And Alien Abductions are okay, as long as the aliens resemble the ones we right about. If not, we're in trouble. ;)

  19. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    I might be, too, but I'd try so hard to overcome it. Fear or curiosity. Which would win out? :)

  20. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:42 PM

    Fuzzy socksuckers! You couldn't find them? LOL Just kidding, Liz. I hang out with kids, so I don't swear much.


    Thanks so much! :)

  21. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 2:42 PM

    Um, yeah. In that case, I'd run, too. Thank you Ilona! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Good interview! I haven't read any of Jessica's books but I do like the sound of Alien Adoration. As for what I would say or do - I'm not really sure. I think it would depend on what the alien was doing - if they are just standing around I would probably say hello and try to strike up a conversation - if not then again it would depend on what they are doing first. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOL that strikes the funniest picture in my head of an alien just standing there whistling, like they ain't got a thing to do! Funny :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Run, and hide!! Unless you have a weapon too, then play "whose is bigger?" :) Thanks for coming by :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think I would scream first than I would run to get my dogs so they can protect me..

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd probably just stand there in shock. Then think im imagining it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd probably faint, or pee my pants then faint.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That skimmer should generally be on the other side from generally falls or download
    to create circulation. Wouldn't you often be sorry for some those wasted a lot of years?

    LOL I wouldn't trust an alien standing there doing nothing. Would seem like it was a set up/distraction for something else. Thanks so much, Maria! :)

    The dogs would be a great idea! Thank you, Tina! :)

  32. Jessica E. SubjectMay 15, 2013 at 9:04 PM

    LOL I've been known to faint, but I would hope at that moment, I wouldn't. Thank you for visiting me, Shannon! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It would depend on how he looks and what he's doing. I've read some good SciFi with really hot and fine aliens. Any chance it would be one of these???? Just some wishful thinking ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I really don't know, I might scream of just freeze...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Freezing might be the best possible choice, as long as you hide first!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I might do the same thing! LOL> Thanks for coming by :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Haha, if it is a sexy human looking alien, I am all in!! I'd like some of those, please!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hopefully just faint, and not the peeing! Although it might scare it away, so you might be on to something :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sounds like a plan haha. Thanks for coming by!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Dogs! yes! Dogs are good, they are definitely in order in this situation :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Including without calling our professionals, this approach should
    be realistically easy. Not quick dehydration leads of slow metabolism and shortly
    illness.

    I agree. Good plan! Though, I wonder what the 911 dispatcher would say. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would settle for humanoid ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Depends on if the alien looks human or not.If it didn't look human,I would probably shoot first ask questions later.
