Published 3 October 2013

Blurb: As two Alphan warriors on the fast track to promotion and improved status, Mikel and Felix of the Tauride have their future planned out. They intend to go from performing security duties for the Prince while he visits Earth to eventually earning the right to seek out their human mate and rescue her in some dramatic way, impressing her and earning her love. But a chance encounter with a lovely young woman sends them both down a markedly different path.  Shy Alisa Sorrel merely wanted to see a rose garden, then retreat back to her safe and sequestered life in the Women’s Refuge on Earth, but once she encounters two earnest and determined Alphan officers, she’s forced out of her shell and into a whole new world of passion.  Even as the bonds they share tighten and satisfy needs they’d never imagined, Alisa, Felix, and Mikel are soon faced with danger and betrayal from the machinations of humans and Alphans alike. The Alphans will have the chance to rescue their fair damsel after all, but will they make it in time?

How Far Would You Go?

wpid-20140405_140300.jpgIt’s a writer’s dream. A film adaptation of their book. The road isn’t an easy one. Getting noticed, for instance, is like being a tiny fish in a large ocean. Most of the time, a film audio options your baby which means you get a little bit of money but it doesn’t equal the big screen in your future.

But what if it happens? The cast is picked, the screen play is written and when you look it over … your baby has been twisted from the original. Your favorite little moment between the characters is … gone. They’ve added some quirky third character as some side kick dork. And the language that your main character uses that’s a little racy? Stripped away.

They’ve sanitized your perfect little angel.

So how far would you go?

For me, I would be taken aback if any of my stories would be optioned. They’re a bit on the naughty side so translating to film would mean a lot of adaptation. For the sake of argument, let’s say one of them gets picked up. It’s optioned and then that fat manuscript gets created to put it to the big screen. Depending on the wording in the contract, I might not have creative control and that might be the first step to the big compromise.

It’s about your brand being represented. Sure the whole ‘based on a novel by blah blah blah’ might absolve you a bit but there’s your name flashed on the screen. Tattooed on your behind like an ex-boyfriend’s name. Either way, it’s not an easy choice. Once the stars fade and reality sets in, I’d have to go with my gut. A little bit of change to make it work on that gorgeous ginormous screen and I might sell my baby to the highest bidder.

I’ll console myself with laser surgery to get rid of a pesky bad ink decision.

How would you roll?
