Recently, I redesigned the covers to my young adult novels. To celebrate and to show them off, I'm putting them on sale until September 28th. Aren't they pretty? I'm so proud of how they came out.
Valentine's Day is Abducted Life's birthday, and to celebrate, I decided to host a blog hop about being abducted by aliens. Because nothing is more romantic than getting kidnapped by aliens. What? Savannah and Evan disagree? Bah. They are no fun.
Anyways, join me and others this week as we muse on being abducted by aliens. You can still join, too, if you'd like. I decided to write about the moment before they were taken.
The wheat rustled in the night's wind, swaying around Savannah. She ran her fingertips over the tops. Where was he? He usually beat her. Then he'd wrap his arms around her and...
Heat rushed up Savannah's face.
Footsteps turned her around. Evan strode to her. He ducked his head and grinned sheepishly. "Sorry I'm late. Mom woke and--"
Savannah crushed her lips to his.
The force caused him to step back. "Whoa." He chuckled and wrapped his arms around her. They held each other, reveling in the warmth of their embrace. Evan kissed her again. His hands slid up her shirt. She moaned against his lips and the world around them faded. Nothing mattered. School tomorrow. Unfinished homework. Getting caught. Not even the shooting star that seemed to be coming toward them mattered. They were together and nothing could separate them.
Savannah Janowitz’s perfect life was destroyed the night she and her boyfriend vanished without a trace. A year later she reappears—alone. With no memory of what happened and strange, new abilities manifesting, Savannah struggles to rebuild her life.
Evan Sullivan never gave aliens much thought until the night he and Savannah were abducted. Changed by the horrifying experiments that made him less than human, Evan hides in the shadows and watches Savannah rebuild her life without him.
But neither can let the other go. Reunited, Savannah and Evan finally see a glimmer of their old lives return. As they face what happened to them together, they realize aliens aren’t the only danger out there.
Someone closer to home is watching, waiting for the right moment to tear them apart.
Now, it's your turn. How would you be abducted by aliens? What would you do?
Next month, on Valentine's Day, is Abducted Life's birthday. Savvy and Evan are three years old. To celebrate, I thought I'd ask you to write a story about being abducted by aliens.
Try to keep your story around 500 words or less. You can go nuts with how you approach it. Government report. First person encounter. Stowing away on an alien spaceship. (Okay, not really an abduction, but if that's where inspiration takes you, who am I to argue?) You want to write it from the alien's POV? Go for it. It's up to you. If you get graphic in anyway, make sure to put a note at the top that it's not PG. Posts will go up the week of Valentine's Day. I will email details for Abducted Life on February 1st.
