What do ...

What do Babylon 5, Farscape and a sexy space menage have in common?


Now that I have you completely confused, I will explain ...

I am a geek, as many of you know.  I have never tried to hide it.  In fact, I revel in my geekiness.  Part of my geekdom is a love of sci-fi shows, specifically space romances. : )  With B5 there was Delenn and Sheridan.  Farscape has Crichton and Aeryn Sun.

All Alone in the Night is my sexy menage sci-fi erotic romance set in a near future (I am not too specific about exactly when).  It features a heroine who is determined to find out what happened to her two best friends, no matter the cost.  Even if it means her life.

She is finally given clearance to go on a fact-finding mission, and everything is going well ... until, well, it isn't going well.  a wormhole opens up, and she is sucked in and transported to an alien planet outside of our star system.  That whole plot-point is my nod to Farscape.

As for how B5 fits in ... when I was getting ready to publish the story with Phaze, it was suggested to call it Alone in the Night, dropping the ALL at the beginning.  I politely refused, and explained why.

The introduction to the first season of Babylon 5 goes like this:
"It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where Humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call – home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five-hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5."

I wanted to keep the title just like it was, because it was a nod to another sci-fi show that I love.

So there you have it, how Babylon 5, Farscape and a sexy space menage have in common - a geek who loves to write sexy stories, and watch sci-fi shows, with a romance subplot.

Oh ... and ALL ALONE IN THE NIGHT is now available again ...

Riana had almost given up hope of ever finding her lost comrades, and friends, when the Earth-Space Initiative finally decided to send her on a fact finding mission, almost two years after Braden and Davin had gone missing.  They figured it was finally safe.

They figured wrong.

Now Riana is stuck on a strange planet, with no way home, lucky to be alive after being sucked into a wormhole.  And she wasn’t the only one stranded there; she had found the missing pilots.  With no way home, and only themselves to answer to, they had plans for her, plans several years in the making.
