Answer in as little or as much detail as you like:


If you could change how you acted in one moment in your past, what would you do differently? Why?

I guess it should be obvious from my upcoming trilogy that I am a fan of things space-related. It should also be obvious to anyone who’s talked clothes with me that I am a huge ModCloth devotee. (If you ever compliment me on a dress I’m wearing, there is a 90% chance I cheerfully inform you, “It’s from ModCloth!”) These two loves frequently collide, because ModCloth has a rather large selection of space-themed clothing. I’ve managed to pick up a few items, but my non-self-replenishing wallet and my lack of speediness have left me coveting many others. For example…



I so wanted to wear this Just Be Cosmic dress for the Earth & Sky launch party. Is it not gorgeous? And it is the perfect cut for me. And the stars glow in the dark, people. How awesome is that?


Unfortunately I didn’t come across it until it was already sold out in any size there was any hope of fitting me, and now it appears to be gone forever. *sob* If anyone ever sees a medium for sale somewhere, give me a shout and the link, will you?


I’ve also had my eye on this Aerospace Engineer tunic…



Which has an equally cool print and some spiffy Star Trek-esque styling. And this The Way I Galaxy It dress…



Oooh. It’s lovely too.


Possibly the coolest space clothing still on the site, though — which I would be all over if my feet weren’t so weirdly shaped I have enough trouble finding shoes when I can try them on:



The Aerospace Cadet boot. Excuse me while I drool a little.


What have you been coveting lately?

With Earth & Sky‘s release just a few weeks away, I thought I’d introduce you to some of the characters. Or, at least, approximately what I imagine those characters look like.


If you’d rather form your own mental images without interference, this is your cue to stop reading. ;)


Skylar


Earth & Sky‘s main character, Skylar, looks a lot like That 70s Show-era Laura Prepon:



Although Skylar’s hair is not as red — mostly brown, like here:



Win is on the receiving end of looks like this rather a lot early on in the story:



Win


Win was the character I could first picture clearly — I immediately thought of Luke Pasqualino from the UK Skins (with added bonus, he has the correct accent too):



For the most of the book, he does not get to be quite that relaxed. This would be closer to his more frequent emotional state:



Angela


Skylar’s best friend Angela could be portrayed by Devon Seron, and is generally just as cheerful as you see here:



Jeanant


The leader of Win’s rebel group, Jeanant, is a ringer for Sendhil Ramamurthy (in earlier drafts of the book, Skylar had a crush on him, and I’d imagine you can see why):



Kurra


The Enforcer who pursues Skylar and Win through time and around the world is a pretty close match for Tilda Swinton a la the picture below, although Kurra has pale gray eyes (and would be wearing rather different clothing):



Thlo


Jeanant’s second in command and the woman directly in charge of Win’s group, Thlo, has a very similar look to Joan Chen (and this would be a rather typical expression):



Jule


Win’s antagonizing colleague, Jule, who has a more prominent role in the rest of the trilogy, is represented in my files by Lee Thompson Young, who I was sad to discover has recently passed on:



He can be charming when he wants to be:



There you have it! If you’ve read the book, let me know whether my images fit yours, or whether you have alternate ideas (or ideas for characters not currently pictured). :)

One question, answer in as much or as little detail as you like:


Do you believe intelligent life exists on other planets? (Why/why not?)
