Alien Contact for Runaway Moms - Book Tour and #Giveaway

I'm so pleased to be part of the Release tour for Alien Contact for Runaway Moms, written by Ed Hoornaert, a fellow Sunday Snippeteer. This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. The author will be awarding a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

When her abusive lover tries to take custody of her baby, Audra flees where even he can’t follow: the aliens’ forbidden cities underneath Kwadra Island.

But can the safety she wants for her daughter survive a search party, violent alien criminals—and the love of an emotionally damaged Kwadran?
Read an Excerpt:

“Are you sure you want to do this?” As soon as the words fled his mouth, he realized how stupid they were. Of course she was sure. Nothing could stop such an elemental force of nature. She was Spirit Mother, walking amongst humans to teach him, Tal Pelletier, some of the many lessons he needed to learn.

“I…” She caressed her baby’s head. “No, I’m not sure. I lost all my certainties somewhere back in the tunnel.”

Belying her words, she reached for one of the massive, marrel-plastic door handles. Pulled. It was too heavy for her.

When he grasped the handle to help, his finger grazed hers. She froze. She was a slight woman with delicate, haunted features; she had to tip her head back to meet his eyes, almost as though asking for a kiss. Just as he needed her spirit’s strength, she needed his physical strength—but not his lust, which was tainted with anger and despair. Never that.

So he kept his lips to himself. Together, they pulled open a door onto the ghosts of a past that had never existed.

He blinked. Although the cavern’s lights were dim, they were too bright after the ventilation tunnel. The cavern smelled and felt different. The air in the ventilation tunnel was raucous and angry, but out here it was still with resignation.

Audra moved, startling him. She touched her forehead, the baby on her chest, then both shoulders. He puzzled over her movements for a moment but then recognized the sign of the cross. The gesture was perfect, showing that she realized the mystical power of the world of his ghosts. She was indeed a Spirit Guide, sent to help him overcome his demons.

About the Author: Edward Hoornaert is not only an author of science fiction, romance, and non-fiction, he's also a certifiable Harlequin Hero; he inspired N.Y. Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson to write her favorite Harlequin Desire, Mr. Valentine, which was dedicated to him. In the past, he wrote contemporary romances for Silhouette Books, but these days he writes science fiction adventures—usually with elements of romance. In addition to novelist, he has been a teacher, technical writer, salesman, janitor, and symphonic oboist.

After having 30 different addresses in his first 28 years, his rolling stone slowed in the mountains of British Columbia and stopped in Tucson, Arizona. His high school sweetheart has been his wife for more years than he has fingers and toes to count. Ed and Judi have three sons, a daughter, a mutt, and the Milky Way Galaxy's most adorable grandsons.

  1. You're very welcome, it's always a pleasure to host a felloiw SF author, especially when we're 'online' friends!

  2. This is a twist of sci fi I haven't read before. Escaping with custody of a child is not a sci fi read I would be familiar with but I do like the premise. Sounds like a good read.

    1. My first three novels were Silhouette Special Editions, so I immersed myself early in women's issues. Sometimes my sci fi is just sci fi, but more often I blend in some romance.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Katie. This is, as you say, quite an unusual premise for a SF novel, but having read several snippets I have to say it's very compelling and I found both charcters intrigueing - the book's on my Kindle waiting to be read,

  4. Sounds like an interesting read! Thank you

  5. It certainly does! Thanks for stopping by, Linda.

  6. Congratulations on your new release, Ed! Wishing you many sales.

    1. I really appreciate your support, Hywela. BTW, I have a Welsh villain in my WIP. I may yet change that to Australian, though, in your honor.

    2. LOL Ed, I reckon there were a few villains, even in Wales. (Twm Sion Cati comes to mind, he was a legendary rogue, a bit like a Welsh Robin Hood!)

  7. I can't wait to read this, esp. since I've read Ed's snippets each weekend. The book is waiting on my Kindle for me to make time to read. Best wishes, Ed.

    1. LOL, you and me both, Diane, thanks for stopping by!
