A New Body
Hi everyone, thanks for letting me take over this blog today to talk about my new book, My Boyfriend’s an Alien.
There are lots of stories about aliens falling in love with humans out there and while there are some that have, shall we say, unusual features about themselves, many of them are essentially compatible with human beings when it comes to relationships and sex. But who are we to say that is the case?
I am someone who does believe that there is other intelligent life out there besides here on Earth. The universe if so huge I think it is rather arrogant to assume we’re alone in it. But why do we assume that aliens would look anything like ourselves?
For my new book I decided that this would not be the case. Zak is an alien who has never seen a human being before in his life. In fact, most of his people haven’t either. At least until the day he turns into one.
Imagine finding yourself with a human body that is vastly different from your own.
Having extra fingers, no tail for balance and no fur for warmth is bad enough for Zak. But when his new body also comes with stronger emotions than he has ever experienced before as well as appendages that seem to have a mind of their own, well, that’s just a recipe for disaster – or for evil authors such as myself to inflict torture on their characters.
Poor Zak is really put through the ringer as he tries to figure out what is happening to his new body. Evil though it is, I have to admit I had a lot of fun making Zak suffer.
Zak, an alien from the planet Trimmeron, is a member of a race of beings who transform into other species during their years of puberty. It’s customary for the youngsters to be fostered to the worlds native to their new forms, to study and learn about the races who will play an important part in their lives.
When Zak turns into a human, it comes as a surprise to everyone, for only one other before him has ever done so. Nevertheless he is sent to Earth, a world he views as primitive and barbaric. He arrives with a chip on his shoulder and attitude to spare. He does not believe that anyone on Earth could have anything to teach him.
When Zak meets college student Sam he soon discovers he has a lot to learn, not only about humans, but also about himself.
Trapped on an unfamiliar world and in a strange body that seems to have a mind of its own, Zak has no idea what is happening to him—only that Sam seems to be the key to the strange afflictions he is suffering from.
But can an alien find love with a human being?
The lights were already down when they made their way to a pair of seats near the back of the room. Sam sat down first and Zak took the seat near the aisle.
“You’ll really enjoy this,” Sam whispered as the big screen in front of them played a commercial for some kind of vehicle.
Zak whispered back to Sam that he was sure he would.
As the film played on the screen, Zak began to feel rather strange. There was something happening down there and it was totally out of his control. He shifted in his seat and tried to change his position so it wasn’t as obvious.
Sam laughed at something happening up on the big screen in front of them. The sound sent a zing right through Zak’s body, culminating in an uncomfortable tightening of his jeans. This had been happening to him quite a lot recently, but not to this extent.
Zak tried to concentrate on the movie, but it wasn’t holding his attention as it had before. His awareness of Sam heightened with every minute.
“Are you okay?” Sam whispered.
Zak groaned as Sam’s warm breath against his ear added to the problem down below.
“Fine,” Zak hissed.
Sam took him at his word and dipped his hand into the big tub of popcorn. At the touch of Sam’s fingers brushing against his own, hidden in the confectionary, Zak sank even lower into his seat as he tried to figure out what was happening to him.
Sam put a handful of popcorn into his mouth and started to chew. When Sam placed a hand on Zak’s thigh the pain in his groin became unbearable and he shot up from his seat. “I’ve got to go,” he said, causing several other people in the cinema to shush at him.
He didn’t wait for Sam to reply. He grabbed his jacket and bolted for the exit.
