If you’ve spoken to me much, it’s possible you’ve heard me make more than one comment about the alien one, often said as a joke and more likely than not said in a way of implying that no one would ever see it.
There were a few things that decided me on releasing this. For one, the ‘graphic stuff’ isn’t in the first book; it’s in the second. For two . . .
This is one of the most recent books that I’ve written. (A couple years ago.) I feel that some of the things in it are a reflection of where I was at in life, and comparing it/that/them to where I was, personally, when writing my older-written books . . .
I liked what it said.
In a lot of ways, this series (thus far) was/has been delving into the depths of what being human means and can mean. As odd and borderline disturbing as some bits of this book are or could be . . .
There are some really beautiful things in there—about empathy, compassion, care, and love. The extents of each. That falling short of them or having them fallen short on need not mean it must always be so, or that it always will.
I’ve written I don’t know how many books where the love interest is just so dreamy. One of my favorite things about this?
The thought of love being genuinely blind, where it’s about the health of the space between people opposed to physical attraction. (But attraction sure is nice!)
The care is what sticks out to me in this book, far more than any ‘icky alien bits’ and such.
As always, I hope that, if you read this, you enjoy it. I hope you find something good there, whether it’s what I found or not. <3
As a little note, though?
I would just feel better giving a slight nudge in saying . . .
There is a content advisory for this book available on my website. I do put them up on all of my book pages, but . . .
I’m just going to leave this here.
