I actually already have several other series going, both as Gini Koch and as other pen names (G.J. Koch, Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, & A.E. Stanton), and I write as J.C. Koch as well. You can find everything that's available, and much (though not all!) of what's coming at the Bibliography page at my website (http://www.ginikoch.com/bibliography.htm). I'm currently contracted through Book 13 for the Alien series, but am hoping to go beyond that (shooting for 16-20 :-D) so I didn't want to wait to get other things going. LOL(less)

So I've had the ideas for everything I'm working on for months or years. For new things, I usually get inspired by a dream, some music, or some random comment. Ideas are a dime a dozen, and I have more of them than I'll ever have time to write. Making the ideas mean something and come out right on the page? That's what matters.(less)

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a super week. I got the teaser pages for Alien Separation done and turned in and am reviewing copy edits for Universal Alien while simultaneously doing research for my X-Files story and generally living the writer life.

“It's a snake, then.'

I was taking this extremely well. 'We have to kill it. By we, of course, I mean you. I'll stand here and scream.”

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

Oh, that's awesome, and I'd love to stop by! I'm on deadline for Book 8/Alien Research right now, but later in the month should work out great. Book 7/Alien in the House releases on May 7th, so later April is a good time. :-D

This would be my first Goodreads book club visit, so I'm not sure on how it all works. LOL Do we set up a time, just post randomly throughout the day, etc.?

Looking forward to it, whatever it turns out to be!

Love,
Gini
