Hi, Gwen,

Thank you—I love all my characters. Luka and Mairwen, the main characters of OVERLOAD FLUX, have another adventure in the novella, ZERO FLUX, and make a supporting appearance in PICO'S CRUSH.

The Big Damn Story Arc that these books are part of should peak along around book 8 or so, and I expect a lot of characters will make appearances there. In the meantime, I might write scenes or short stories with Luka and Mairwen, as well as the other couples, as a reward for fans.(less)

Guest Post by Ruby Lionsdrake, About Her Pet in Pets in Space

Note from Carol: I'm thrilled to be a part of the Embrace the Passion: Pets in Space 3  science fiction romance anthology, in part because I get to work with fabulous authors such as Ruby Lionsdrake, author of the Mandrake Company series. Well, actually, Lindsay Buroker is the author — Ruby Lionsdrake is her not-so-secret pen name. Lu...
