Guest post by Nico Rosso:The alien space ship has landed. The door opens. A mysterious hand beckons you inside. It will be the ride of your life. Do you take it? Of course you do. It’s an opportunity to step off our world and into another.That’s what Sci-fi romance is, a journey. Even if it takes place on Earth, as my Sci-fi
romance TAKEN TO THE LIMIT does, it is still a voyage into the unknown.
The same can be said of urban paranormal or historical romance. They take us
into a place where, without the book, we can’t go. So the romance reader is already
familiar with taking the leap. Opening the book is like opening the door to the alien
spaceship. Where will it take me?
It may seem like an isolated sub-genre, but Sci-fi romance is universal, no matter
what universe it’s taking place in. Unless your e-reader is cooler than those I’ve found,
any Sci-fi romance you’ll find was written on Earth. Elements of our cultures and
societies will leak into the writing, helping ground the reader. And they’ll give us new
perspectives on what is going on around us. How often has Science Fiction been used to
comment on our current life and where we’re headed? 1984. 2001. Those years have
passed, but the books are still relevant insights into our world.
And as for the romance, Sci-fi is the perfect setting. The possibilities are
limitless. Grand scenarios can be constructed to make the heroes and heroines extra
strong, smart and sexy. Even aliens can be sexy. When I’m writing primary alien
characters, like Sergeant Morrow from TAKEN TO THE LIMIT, I think of them as
being played by humans. As if the role was cast from Earth. That way, their bodies
and features are close enough to ours so the reader can identify with them. And the sex.
Who wants to figure out what a Mitoplian pleasure dentricle is? My human character,
Dr. Korina Antonakis, certainly doesn’t and I don’t know if the reader does either. By
casting humans to play the aliens (with small adjustments to make them unique), we’re
sure that all the characters’ sensitive body parts correspond.
So open the spaceship door, the book cover or the e-reader and leap into the Sci-
fi journey. Like all romance, it’s an opportunity to be swept up and carried into a world
that is not our own and to go on the adventure of a lifetime.
QUESTION: If the ship arrived and the door opened, would you get on (assuming
there are assurances you won’t be brunch)?
