Celebrating Success! Jessica Subject.

Happy July 1st – a great day to celebrate. Not only is today Canada Day, but Decadent Publishing has moved up the release date of Jessica Subject’s ebook: Celestial Seduction to today!

I’m a believer of conquering your fears, but Jessica Subject took that challenge to the next level when she went from fearing the possibility of aliens to reading and writing about them. Combining her love of both science fiction and romance, she creates “happily-ever-afters” for the entire universe!

Jessica lives in Southwestern Ontario, Canada with her husband, two children and their seven year-old rabbit. I suspect on any given night if you're looking at the stars you'll know that Jessica is gazing into that same night sky crafting her next project.

            Celestial Seduction

At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate.

Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.

Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.

This is fabulous writing Jessica, and I’m hooked. We know why you write about aliens, but what actually inspired you to write?

“I started writing almost four years ago, trying to write a book my daughter (who was just learning to read) would read without getting frustrated. And I just couldn't stop.”

A fabulous author and a creative mother too, I had no doubt. Like all passionate writers I know that you’re working on another project. Can you give us a heads up on what you’re working on?

“Right now I'm working on another science fiction romance story, this time not involving aliens.”

So you are venturing out to the human realm. Nice. You’ll have to come back and tell us which you love writing about more—humans or aliens. On that note, do you have any writing advice you would like to share with our readers today?

“I think the most important piece of advice I could give is to find a critique group and/or critique partners; not just one, but several. I don't mean family members or friends, but other authors, published and not, who will read your story and tell you what works and what doesn't. Also, if you don't know something, don't make it up. There are so many experts in the field that are on twitter, facebook and other social networking sites that are willing to answer questions. You helped me a lot with the story I am working on now.”

Ah… I’m so glad I could help. And how much fun that was, too. If anyone else would like technical aviation information I would love to share it with you, too. Contact me via my blog: Flight To Success

  2. Wow, this looks like a great read. Just from that cover copy I'm hooked. Congratulations on your writing, and on publishing, Jessica!

  3. Thank you so much Karlene, Heather and Linda for hosting me here. It's truly an exciting day.

  4. One of my all time favorite movies from ions ago which I saw for the first time two decades after it was filmed is Barbarella with Jane Fonda..... who can forget her "heightened" pleasure scene.... Blushing now.

    Jessica the cover is awesome and the story sounds like a fun sexy read with a very interesting twist.

  8. Congratulations again, Jessica! I read the excerpt at 'Mark of the Stars'. I hope he doesn't have to spend the night alone after all. Poor alien!
    Favorite alien hero? Spock from Star Trek. Who else? :)

  9. Amber - Yes, I didn't expect it, but it all turned out really well. :)

    Dianne - Well, you'll have to get a copy and find out. LOL I'm a fan of Captain Kirk from the new Star Trek (Chris Pine), although Vulcans may have had some inspiration in the race of aliens Frey belongs to.

  10. Thank you Linda and Heather for your continued support. You warm my heart.

  11. Jessica, you are so welcome. On behalf of all of us we wish you the ultimate success!
