When I begin to write any story, one of the first things I do is to create a playlist for the story. I usually pick a few songs that relate to the hero and the heroine during specific scenes. With HIS ALIEN VIRGIN, which officially releases tomorrow, the heroine Skylar, goes through so much more before she meets up with the hero.
In the beginning of the story, when she’s trying to escape, sometimes I just listen to instrumental music. Erin Shore by The Corrs is what I like to listen to. Though the songs seems pretty calm, the drum solo at 3:00 really gets my heart pumping and puts me into the action. Like any good story, the lead up to the action is just as important as the climax.
But most of the songs in the playlist relate to the times Skylar and Daran are together. Here’s the playlists for each character:
These songs help me to feel the proper emotions for my characters during certain scenes, and thus if I can feel it, I am able to portray it better in the story.
His Alien Virgin
A 1Night Stand story
By Jessica E. Subject
New Adult Erotic Sci-Fi Romance
She is desperately seeking freedom…
On the eve before her twenty-first birthday, Skylar steals a ship and escapes from the planet Rebed. She refuses to be another wife to the slimy space pirate that is her betrothed. After hearing of her brothers’ own success, she applies to the 1Night Stand service on her way to Earth, hoping Madame Eve can find a man to be her hero, to make her feel special, even if for only one night.
He is trying to fit in…
Daran traveled to Earth years ago, and he still struggles to fit in on the planet. But when his boss suggests a blind date, he reluctantly agrees. What would happen if anyone found out about his alien ancestry?
And they are not at all meant to be together…
As best friend to Skylar’s brothers, Daran has always forced himself to fight his attraction to her. He cannot see her as anything more than a little sister, someone to protect. So, why did Madame Eve match them together?
Has Madame Eve made a huge mistake, or will Daran tread into forbidden territory to be with the one woman he’s always wanted, and become the hero Skylar craves?
