Hello Spacefreighters! I am thrilled Laurie invited me to join the blogging crew! I’ll be posting every other Wednesday on topics like science fiction romance, writing, and my other love--martial arts and self-defense.
Today I want to talk about book covers, but before I do, I should probably introduce myself. I’m K.M. Fawcett, a science fiction romance writer relaunching my career this month after getting my rights back from my publisher for my books in the Survival Race Series. I like writing stories featuring underdogs and fish-out-of-water characters who find their place in the universe. I believe in happy endings and true love conquering all.
My husband—who wants everyone to know he’s the inspiration for all my heroes, who then have to be toned town for believably *grins*—and I own Tenchi Dojo in NJ, where we teach traditional Okinawan karate and kobudo (weapons). I incorporate my martial arts experience into my stories to create strong, kick-ass characters who aren’t afraid to fight for the life and love they deserve.
Now that I have the rights to my books back, I gave them shiny new covers and revised the material, including expanded and new scenes in CAPTIVE from sexy alpha gladiator Max’s point of view! Woot!
I’m super excited for the relaunch of my writing career and for my stories to be back out in the world. Before we peek at CAPTIVE’S new cover created by my cover designer Karri Klawiter, here’s a look at the original. Can you tell what genre this book is? Unfortunately for me, many readers couldn’t.
Some people guessed historical romance, medieval romance, or fantasy romance. Nope. Nope. And nope. How about this cover? What genre is this? Leave your guesses in the comments section.
A rookie cop and an alpha gladiator band together to escape their alien captors in a chilling race for survival and soon discover freedom isn’t all they desire.
Captive is available now at your favorite retailers. You can read the first chapter for free here.
