No One on Earth @JenniferTLoring #RLFblog #scifiromance #SFR

Welcome Jennifer Loring author of No One on Earth, a new m/m sci-fi romance.
Why did you write this book?
After Glows Publishing had put out a call for m/m sci-fi romance novellas to be collected into a holiday-themed anthology. The concept interested me, so I experimented with a couple of different story ideas, all involving Native American folklore, before settling on the legend of the Handsome Fellow. I grew up on a reservation, but this was my first time writing an indigenous character. I don’t think it will be my last. J Anyway, the novella first appeared in Starstruck Holidays this past Christmas and is now releasing on its own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
It will probably always be horror. I also love non-fiction.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Two are characters I’ve loved since I was a teenager—Irrylath from The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce and Zach from Poppy Z. Brite’s Drawing Blood. I also adore Constantine from Robin McKinley’s Sunshine.
What are you working on at the moment?
A Gothic/paranormal romance novella for After Glows, concepts for a narrative game, and a lot of short fiction.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
March will bring my novella Prison Made of Mirrors, a retelling of Snow White, from Strange Fictions Press. The final book of The Firebird Trilogy (The Pieces of Us) releases from Limitless Publishing in April, and the first Erotik√≥s anthology—containing two of my erotic horror short stories—from DarkFuse. In May, I’ll be in a contemporary romance anthology that I can’t talk about yet.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre: m/m sci-fi romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Jon, a psychic since childhood, has never felt at home in the world, even less so after his lover died on Winter Solstice a year ago. Since his abilities failed him when he needed them most, he turns to alcohol and rejects his family’s assertion that he is a Star Child—an alien/human hybrid. When Jon’s sister suggests he should look into the legend of Handsome Fellow, Jon decides that if he cannot find happiness himself, he will bring it to others.
Erukkass’ people, a species of interdimensional aliens, have been observing Earth and interacting with humans for so many centuries that some Native American tribes believe their ancestors originated from the stars. After his lover passed away in what appears to be a medical accident, he accepts a scientific mission… but not for the reasons his government expects. He has located his beloved on another timeline, in another universe—ours—and he will not leave without him.
Jon returns home from work one evening to find a gift of his own—a strange young man waiting for him. Erukkass unveils one stunning revelation after another, including the truth behind his lover’s death and the nature of time itself. Can he and Jon forge a future together, or will two timelines that have always intersected, no matter when or where, finally be forced to diverge?
