When opposites collide.

Hello readers and a big thank you to Lampshade Reader for letting me guest blog here today.

Isn’t it fun when the hero and heroine of a story are complete opposites? My Fair Lady, Beauty and the Beast, the African Queen. Two people thrown together yet so vastly different that, at least in the beginning, you think “no way are they ever going to end up together.”

I love those kinds of stories. The way sparks fly and comedy ensues as they try to work out their differences. To me, it’s just great fun. And a premise I wanted to write someday.

I have to admit, most of my books feature couples that either start out as friends, or have something in common that brings them together. So creating a story around this premise offered a challenge, but when I was invited to contribute to the incredible Soul Mate Tree series, I knew what kind of story I wanted to write.

I wanted a comedy. A science fiction romantic comedy to be exact. So I went with a city mouse/country mouse theme, and dove right into the writing. What emerged was Between Venus and Mars.

Book Cover Between Venus and Mars

Kyle Kepler is from the ultra modern core worlds of the galaxy. He’s an upright, straight shooter. A Galactic Marshal, enforcer of the galactic laws. He doesn’t lie, cheat, or curse, except when he’s working undercover. Tough but fair, he believes that the law is the law.

Zana Starchild is from one of the backwater rim worlds. A rugged, frontier farming colony that sets its own rules. She considers most galactic laws more like guidelines that can be easily broken when inconvenient.  The one Galactic Marshal that did occasionally stop by was corrupt and of no use when her colony was attacked and pillaged by space pirates, so she has a very low opinion of galactic law enforcement. And she can curse like a sailor given any incentive.

Two people from completely different worlds, marooned together on a derelict planet, so they have to learn to get along.

What could be more fun?

Between Venus and Mars also fits in with my Hearts in Orbit series, borrowing characters and settings from it, so it has the unique status of being in two series at the same time.

Between Venus and Mars

Book Cover Between Venus and Mars

Blurb:

Once Upon a Galaxy . . .

Zana Starchild is on a mission to restore her tribe’s livestock and save herself from one more meal of kelp. Sure, it’s technically illegal to visit Old Earth, but to a rim rat like Zana, galactic laws are really just guidelines. Her wrecked starship just means she’ll need to use her backup plan to get off the abandoned world, an old Earth legend her uncle passed down to her.

Pulled from a relaxing shower, across the galaxy to Old Earth, Galactic Marshall Kyle Kepler finds himself naked and marooned with a quirky rim rat. Zana’s broken more laws than Kyle can count, and he plans to arrest her, just as soon as he can find transport off the planet and a pair of pants.

A junk heap of a starship, a magical tree, and a roving gang of mutant kangaroos are just the beginning of rollicking intergalactic journey filled with laughs, love, and adventure.

Zana Starchild banked the rickety TRS-90 quinjet, as a photon torpedo detonated off her port thruster. The explosion rocked the tiny starship, and it was all she could do to hang on.

“Okay, maybe I should have used the fuckin’ seatbelt.”

The instrument panel lit up with bright red whatcha-ma-doogers, flashing like the ancient neon sign hanging in front of Paddington’s Pastry Shop.

She grunted. “That’s probably bad.”

It would have been really nice to have someone with her who actually knew how to fly this junk-heap, or could at least tell her what the hell those flashing things meant.

It was kind of hard to check the instruction manual while these shitheads were firing phase cannons and photon torpedoes up her ass.

Not that she actually had an instruction manual.

“Shit.”

Just her luck to find deep-space pirates waiting at this jump point.

Bastards.

And these had to be the dumbest pirates in the entire galaxy. Sure, it was a convenient place to surprise travelers, but this jump point didn’t go anywhere anyone wanted to be.

Well, except her, and that was completely irrelevant to her argument. Even she didn’t really want to go to Old Earth. She just had to.

Sorry I couldn’t stop in yesterday but thanks for hosting!! I love opposites attract love stories and being part of the project with S.C. Mitchell and the other authors (Book 8, Once Upon a Lady is mine) was so much fun. I’m glad we get to share all the stories together!

Between Venus & Mars (Book 3), by S.C.Mitchell, is an action-packed read that showcases a sassy, spunky female character, which makes the book a fun read. My book is #12 in the series and titled Finding Faith: A leap of faith catapults a time-traveling gargoyle into a parallel world.

It was tough having my book follow Steve’s wonderful book, but someone had to do it.

Are there any sublots that you wished you could have added or explored more in your book?

S. C. Mitchell

There are certainly some aspects that could be delved into deeper and a number of the minor characters are now clamoring for their own books. Luckily I have my Hearts in Orbit series to slot them into. Like the one we live in, my fictional universe keeps expanding.
