The Little Blue Lady from Mars – Day After

Free_Fridays!

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Yawn.

[Stretch]

Jennifer13There you are.

Where have you been?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Sleeping.

I’m tired.

Jennifer13Tired?

From what?

.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Do you have to ask?

Planning to take over the world, of course!

What have you been doing?

Jennifer13I started my new book, Optimal Red.

Oh, and I signed a contract

for Paper Wishes.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387You need to get out more.

I mean, seriously,

you need a hobby.

Jennifer13Like what?

Taking over the world?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Yes!!!!! That’s the best hobby ever! 

And then we can have tea and crumpets and make totalitarian plans!

Jennifer13Umm,

How about we just do an interview first.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Piff. You are just not fun.

But I guess I have no choice.  Who’s here today?

Jennifer13Emi Gayle.

You’re gonna be nice, right?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387What’s that supposed to mean?

I’m always nice.

Jennifer13Umm—

Yeah whatever.

Hello Emi!

Hello!

Do you know there is a little blue lady on your table?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Who are you calling little?

How dare you waltz your tallness in here and…

Jennifer13So, Emi,

I hear you have a new book out this week.

What’s it called?

Yes I do!

It’s called Day After and it came out just this Monday.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Piff! 

I bet it’s a tall book about tall people who…

Jennifer13So, Emi, I know this is book two of a series.  How hard is it to know that you’ve gotten it just right, and book two is good enough to follow book one?

An author never thinks her book is good enough, but sometimes, it’s time to let go and let the public have the story. I love the story, I love Mac and Winn, so now it’s time to share what’s been in my head.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Lame Response! Sounds like one of those lovey-dovey books.

Why would anyone want to read it?

Because it has a hot guy on the cover. Or a nerdy one.

Either way, *I* think he’s hot.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Well, I’ll give you kudos that he at least has a head.

I hate novels with headless men.

What?

.

Jennifer13Don’t ask.

.

.

Okay…

.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387I’ll be deciding if it is okay or mot MISSY.

Does anything explode?

Only my head when someone compliments my book.

.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387[turns to Jennifer]

She has an exploding-reappearing head?

.

CJennifer13ould be.  You never know.

I have an alien on my table doing author interviews.

You never know what the stink is going to happen on this blog.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Hmm. 

Okay Missy too-tall with an exploding head.

Tell me what this book is about.

I’m going to give you the blurb because honestly, it’s the best way to describe Winn’s side of things …

Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens. The stuff of fiction.

Or so Winn Thomas always thought. Since being accepted into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his Changeling girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond what he’d get at his human high school.

Luckily, Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails. Right? In this, the second of the 19th Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either. That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what to pick. Winn, though, has his own ideas about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of. He intends to have her pick human.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Hmmmm.

.

Well?

What do you think?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387I think I’m angry,

Because I actually want to read this.

You do?

Yesssssss!

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, Miss Too Tall and Exploding. 

Let’s be real.  Has your head actually ever exploded?

Well, no

But…

PKO_Alien 3 0003387I thought Not.

Have you even ever tried to explode anything?

No.

That sounds dangerous, I…

PKO_Alien 1 0003414Silence,

Too Tall!

Have you ever tried to take over the world?

Did she just get bigger?

.

Jennifer13Yes. 

Answer quick!

She’s getting mad!

Umm… ummmm… Yes! I have already taken over the world. Don’t you know that?

This is actually my interview and you’re just my pawn.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Whaaat?

.

Ha!

Gotcha!

.

Alien PKO_0003428Gotcha? 

Gotcha?

I’ll show you Miss Smarty Pants!

Wait a minute.

Is that a ray gun?

.

Jennifer13Emi quick! 

Get under the table!

PKO_Alien 2 0003417ZAAAAAAAAAAAAP

Ha Ha! No more Too Tall Lady’s book!

[Dances away merrily]

My Book!

She blew up my book!

.

Jennifer13Errr, yeah, that happens sometimes.

Did you remember to bring an extra?

I didn’t know I was supposed to bring an extra.

[Picks particles of half-disintegrated paper from her hair]

.

Jennifer13That stinks, because Day After sounds awesome.

I’d love to read it.

Shoot I wanted to give away a copy!

Well, there is still a Raffle Copter.

.

Jennifer13Oh great!  Can I sign up to win a copy there?

[brushes some book dust off Emi’s shoulder]

Sure.

Here is the link.

.

Jennifer13Great!  Here you go everyone.  To sign up to win a free copy of Day After by Emi Gayle, click on over to Rafflecopter to win

She’s… errr,

not coming back,

Jennifer13Luckily, not for a few more weeks.

You guys can also leave a comment on my website for a chance to win.

Jennifer13Awesome! 

Thanks for coming, and I’m sorry about your book.

[picks up remains of charred cover]

It’s been an interesting experience.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Jennifer’s not here this week, so I don’t have to worry about her being all squishy with these authors.  Finally I get to do an interview without her complaining!  Let’s see who’s here [opens the door]

Hi!

I’m Katie Salidas.

I’m here for the cooking show.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Cooking show?

.

Yep.

Where’s your kitchen?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Umm, It’s Jennifer Eaton’s kitchen actually,

and it’s over there.

Okay.

I’ll just make myself at home.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387What’s with the bowls and pans?

Why’d you just turn on the oven?

Well, we’re going to cook,

aren’t we?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Cook? What’s going on? 

Who are you anyway?

Who am I? Oh no one really, just a small wallflower of a writer who pens the most realistic and gritty urban fantasy vampires. I don’t do sparkles, and I don’t do vegetarian vampires. What I do “do” is emotion, struggle, pain, and ultimately overcoming the obstacles. I also do cookies.

Alien Huh CloseCookies?

Wait a minute.

Actually, we need to wait about five more minutes for the oven to preheat, but there’s lots to do while we’re waiting.  But you know that, right? You’re a cooking show host.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387The last thing I actually cooked was a novel that I didn’t like. 

I blew it up.

Oh!  I love symbolic imagery.

I blew up an idea yesterday.  Storyboarded it and everything.

Alien Huh CloseUmm

What?

Okay, First we have to combine the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl.  Can you start whisking that for me?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Ahhh, I guess.

This thing looks just like a miniature ray gun.

Be careful there.  You don’t want to spill it.

Funny, you act like you’ve never whisked baking ingredients before.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Call it my tragic flaw

.

That’s okay.  In my book Immortalis Carpe Noctem, my My Main character is flawed, that’s for sure, but who among us isn’t? She’s real, she young, and has a lot to learn. And as the series progresses you’ll learn right along with her.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Can she show me how to bake?

.

No silly. That’s what I’m here for.

Now let’s get those sugars mixed up.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387With the whisky thingy?

.

Nope.  Use your hands.

Get out all the lumps.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Wait!

What’s that?

Err, a hand mixer.

We need to start beating the ingredients.

Alien Huh CloseWhat did the ingredients do?

What would you beat them?

I like you you’re funny.

Let’s get the rest of these ingredients in here

Alien Huh CloseAre you sure you know what you’re doing?

This looks like a lump of Martian calowog dung.

I sure do know what I’m doing!  I also know how to write books.  Immortalis Carpe Noctem has sold over 10,000 copies.

It’s almost as good as making cookies!

PKO_Alien 3 0003387I’m not so sure you are good at making cookies. 

How can I be sure your book is any good?

I’ve got positive reviews on every site from Goodreads to Nook! I know this book is good and I want more readers to find it as well!

Alien Huh CloseReally?  But isn’t this book about vampires?

It’s so overdone.  It seems like everyone is becoming a vampire these days.

Becoming a vampire is easy. Living with the condition…that’s the hard part.

Now we need to form this into a roll.  Can you do that?

Alien SmileLike this?

.

Perfect!

Now we need to refrigerate it for forty-five minutes.

Alien SmileWhile we wait,

tell me more about your book.

Newbie vampire Alyssa never asked for this life, but now it’s all she has. Rescued from death by Lysander, the aloof and sexy leader of the Peregrinus vampire clan, she’s barely cut her teeth before she becomes a target.

Kallisto, an ancient and vindictive vampire queen – and Lysander’s old mate – wants nothing less than final death for her former lover and his new toy. She’s not above letting the Acta Sanctorum, and its greatest vampire hunter, Santino, know exactly where the clan can be found.

With no time to mourn her old life, Alyssa’s survival depends on her new family. She will have to stand alongside Lysander and fight against two enemies who will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Alien SmileWow! 

That actually sounds pretty cool!

It is very cool.  And so is our dough.

Now we need to cut this into cookies four inches thick

Alien SmileLike this?

And spread them on the pan, right?

Yes. Hey, you don’t run a cooking show for nothing, you are a natural at this.

Now we bake 12 to 14 minutes.

Alien SmileSo tell me. 

When you’re not baking, do you ever explode things?

In real life, sadly, no. But I have a friend who does that kind of thing for a living. He is an inspiration behind one of the characters in my Immortalis series and he’s also my weapons consultant (so my writing is always accurate where that is concerned.)

Alien SmileOh! 

Has he ever taken over the world?

You know, taking over the world sounds all well and good, but then there is the responsibility of actually “ruling” the world. That sounds too much like work to me. LoL.

Alien SmileNo.  No work. 

I’d just let Jennifer M. Eaton take care of all the hard stuff.

Speaking of hard stuff, we’ve made quite a mess.

Do you have a clean-up crew?

Alien SmileYep. The annoying whiney chick with the curly hair who owns this place. 

She’ll clean it up.

Great!

Let’s get these off the pan and onto a cooling rack.

Alien SmileOops.  I squished one.

Sorry

That’s okay.  There’s plenty more.

Now what we’re going to do is goob a little frosting between these cookies.

Alien SmileOh!

They look like spaceships!

They do, don’t they?

You can even put a little blue food coloring in the frosting so it will match your hair.

Alien SmileMmmmmm!

These are delicious!

If you like these, you should try my book.

It’s even better!

Alien SmileYes!  We must all read Katie Salidas’s book!

Free Books for everybody!

Yay!

I hope everyone enjoys Immortalis Carpe Noctem… and here’s a link to the recipe for the best chocolate sandwich cookies ever. Lemme tell ya… Amazing!  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/cinnamon-spiced-hot-chocolate-cookies-recipe/index.html

Alien Zig Zag

Alien SmileYee Haw! I had fun last week.

Great. 

Hey, where have you been?

Alien SmileTexas!  I was out with Sara Barnard explod’, stuff.

Oh, umm, that’s nice. 

I’m glad you made a friend.

Alien SmileSo what’s on tap for this week?

Kerri Neal is waiting outside. 

Are you ready?

Alien SmileOf course!

What kind of host are you, making her wait?

One who likes to make sure her Little Blue Lady is in a good mood first before subjecting visitors to her.

Alien SmileWhat?

Nothing.

.

Alien SmileHmmm. Well, okay.

Ms. Neal?  So nice to meet you. I am the Little Blue Lay From Mars.

How are you today?

Oh, ah, good. 

Is this where I talk about my book Torn?

Alien SmileYes oh yes!  I love to talk about books, but only if they are worth reading.  So let’s cut to it.  Why would someone want to read a torn book?  Isn’t that a little hard?

Huh?

Oh, not… the book isn’t torn. 

The title is Torn.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Well, if the title is torn, how will anyone know what it’s called?

.

No, it’s umm…

.

.

You know what, ladies… next question.  Let’s just leave it at that, okay? What makes your novel great, Kerri?

It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s a nail biter.

What more could you want?

 

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Sexy?  Is it human sexy or Martian sexy?  I really don’t get into all the half-headed men on this planet.

I think everyone is Kerr’s book has whole heads.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Are you sure?

Pretty sure. 

Go ahead, move on.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Well, if there are no sexy Martians, why would anyone want to read it?

.

Did I mention it’s fun, sexy and a nail biter? 

Well, ok then. It’s also a love story. And there is some violence for you adrenaline junkies.

Alien SmileOh!

What kind of violence?

Does anything explode?

Why, yes. Yes something does explode.

Your heart! There’s also an actual explosion, but I don’t want to give anything away.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Jennifer, she’s talking about exploding hearts.  Is this a horror book, because that sounds really messy.

I don’t think that’s what she meant.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Are you sure?

Keep going see what she says.

.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Okay, so, what exactly is it about?

.

After Agent Shane Baxter’s last mission failed both professionally and personally, he fled the States and changed his name. When Dixie Peterson re-enters his life, he has a second chance to make things right. Dixie is determined to find out the truth about Shane’s departure from her life two years ago, but someone else from her past is seeking revenge. Shane and Dixie are forced to confront the past, while their future is still unclear.

Alien Huh CloseThat doesn’t sound like anything explodes.  Hey, is this a squishy Romance novel?

 

It’s a nail-biter! 

It’s exciting.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387She doesn’t sound very convincing.  I have a bad feeling about this one. How do I know she can be trusted?

Ask her some trust-worthy questions.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Okay, Ms Neal:  Would you like to take over the world?

Um…YES! Disney World! 

Cuz I’ve never been there and it sounds awesome!

Is that too many exclamation points?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Disney world?  What the heck are you supposed to do with Mickey Mouse and a bunch of dancing animals?

But I like dancing animals.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Erghhhh.  Are you making fun of me?  I don’t like it when people make fun of me.  Last chance, Neal:  If you could explode just one thing, what would it be?

Ok, what’s your fascination with exploding?

I wish I could blow up a watermelon.

Seriously, I only blown up things in my head.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Ugh!  She’s done.  Exploding watermelons and dancing fruit.  I have nothing in common with this woman!  Where’s my ray gun! Once I get rid of her, let’s go out and get something to eat.

Wait!  Ummmm… Kerri, quick, she’s hungry describe your favorite dessert. 

See if you can distract her!

Well, I love white chocolate lemon cheesecake. Let that soak into your brain for a minute. The buttery white chocolate, the tangy lemon, the melt-in-your-mouth creamy cheese. Then when it’s all gone you have those little ooey-gooey graham cracker crumbs that stick to the plate and the fork. That’ll satisfy your sweet tooth.

Alien PKO_0003428Ooooo.  You would have had me if you didn’t include lemon!  I tried lemon a few weeks ago.

What is it with you authors and lemons!  Disgusting!  Prepare for your demise!

Wait! Stop… just blow up her book… don’t blow up her!  Quick, Kerri, do you have a bribe?

How about a hand-crochet cover for her e-reader?

  I’ll make it myself! 

A pretty blue to match her hair!

Alien Smile Close[[Sniff]]

You’d make me something?

Sure.  You look like a nice little blue alien… when you’re not painting that ray gun at me, that is. 

You can even use it as a comfy bed. 

It would fit you perfectly.

Alien Smile CloseSniff.

[Powers down ray-gun] Okay.

I’ll pretend you didn’t say anything about lemons.

Awesomesauce!  And how about we give away a handmade crochet eReader cover to a guest today with a copy of your ebook of Torn?

Sure. 

They can even pick the color. 

As long as it’s not gray.  I don’t do gray.

There you have it!  Comment below for a free copy of Torn by Kerri Neal, and a bonus custom handmade crochet eReader cover.  How about them apples?

Thanks for coming Kerri!

The Little Blue Lady From Mars © Jennifer M. Eaton.

Help! I’ve been Kidnapped! Get me out of here! (And get a free copy of the Make Believe Anthology while you’re at it.)

Ha!  It’s me!  Thought you’d rid yourself of me, didn’t you?  Well you were wrong!!!!

I sat and twiddled my fingers, patiently waiting my turn, but Jennifer M. Eaton refused to interview me.  So now I have tied her up, and taken over her meager, unworthy website.

What?  You think the Little Blue Lady from Mars knows not how to run a website?  Well, if the scrawny author can do it, why not a formidable Martian like me?

Now where is that instruction manual?

What!  Did I hear a snicker?  Perhaps there are those of you who do not know my power?  I have taken over worlds!  This website will be no problem!

However, I am not completely heartless.  Well, I am… but today I am feeling charitable.  I realize the destruction of this little domain may poison some against me.  So, I will give her one chance.

Do you hear that?  One chance!

So, mere driveling humans, you must beg and plead for me to release Jennifer M. Eaton or you may never see her again.  Ha Ha!

Oh, you may see posts, but these were pre-programmed.  These posts will run out unless I, The Great Little Blue Lady from Mars agrees to set her free!

So, you might ask… What do you need to do to set her free?

Beg!  Beg I tell you.

Give me good reasons to set her free!  And if no one can come up with a good reason, then I will tire of this endeavor and just blow up her blog with her in it!

Wait, What?  Jennifer M. Eaton is rocking in her chair, struggling with her gag.  What do you want Jennifer M. Eaton?

Ha!  She is afraid no one will want to save her!  That’s good!  It will give me a reason to explode something!

Wait… what, Jennifer M. Eaton?  Oh!  She says that she will give a copy of the Make Believe Anthology, her publishing debut, to whoever convinces me not to blow her up.

Ha Ha!  She resorts to bribery, knowing that I am more than willing to blow this place up, just for the fun of it!

So, simple humans, start begging.  Tell me why I should not blow up Jennifer M. Eaton… and should one of you succeed, I will untie her, and you will get a copy of the Make Believe Anthology for free!

Let the begging begin!  I will give you three days to convince me.  On Saturday, October 6th, I will make my decision.

So humans, will you beg to have her back, or shall I let the explosions begin?

Your choice.
