Meet Earth’s Sexiest Superheroes – Part 1: Z-Bot

Xi Force Poster.jpg

It’s been quite a year (well, year and a month) for my new Xi Force series. The first book, Z-Bot premiered on Dec. 6th of 2017. The story was inspired by a picture I picked up on a stock photo site:

Zombiebot.jpgIt spoke to me in ways I hadn’t experienced before. I needed to know who this person was. I needed to figure out his story. And thus, Chris Johnson, Z-Bot, was born.

I was really excited that my cover artist could use the inspirational picture on the cover of the book because this was Chris.

Now, I have a history of killing off the heroes (and occasionally my heroines as well) in my stores. In science fiction and fantasy death doesn’t have to be so final. But with this book I toyed with the idea of killing off my hero in the first chapter.  I ended up killing him off in the first sentence of the book.

Beep. Beep. Beeeeeee . . .

Yup, that’s Chris’s final heartbeat, at least for a while.

You see, Chris becomes a zombiebot. Something half robot, something raised from the dead. A Frankenstein-like project spearheaded by brainy love-interest, Dr. Heather Logan.

And this paves the way for Chris to become the Earth’s (at least my Earth’s) first superhero, and the first member of a new superhero team:

Xi Force

Z-Bot went on to win the Kathryn Hayes “When Sparks Fly” contest. The book also was a finalist for the 2018 PRISM Award, the 2018 National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award (NERFA), and the 2018 Toronto Northern Hearts Contest.

Not bad for a poor little cyborg from Megopolis.

XiForce_505x825_edited

Blurb:

Chris Johnson never really started living until he died. Orphaned, fostered, and drifting through life, the twenty-seven year old programmer had no family, little money, and few friends. But he also had no enemies. So, who the hell killed him? After an experimental process brings him back from the dead as a zombiebot, he gets the chance to find out.

Heather Logan’s latest process uses nanobots to reanimate a corpse. Half robot, half something raised from the dead, Chris is her first successful resuscitation. Questions abound. What is it? Is it truly alive, a machine, or some kind of zombie-hybrid?

But someone wants to steal Heather’s secret process and put her out of the picture permanently. Chris, with his new superpowers, is the only thing standing between Heather and an assassin’s bullet. Is he enough of a hero to save her?

“We don’t even know where we are?”

Captured, stripped, and imprisoned in an alien menagerie, Tina la Cross finds herself the subject of an alien research facility, far from home. But at least she’s not alone. Her friend, Carter Arcturus, a man she’s held secret feelings for since they met, is imprisoned with her.

Carter has been intrigued with Tina for months, but their active schedule hadn’t offered any dating opportunities. Being thrown into a cage together naked really doesn’t qualify as a first date. He needs to keep his eyes open for an escape opportunity and off Tina’s sexy form.

When Carter and Tina are rescued from their prison by their Blarmling friend, Kirtl, the three begin a desperate journey across an alien galaxy. Danger and passions mix as two hearts go into orbit to find safe passage home across an alien galaxy.

Hearts in Orbit: Volume 3 – Captives of the Kratzen is a science fiction romance set in the far-flung space traveling future, continuing the series’ course across galaxies filled with love and adventure.

Romance Writers Weekly – Let’s take a trip.

Welcome to the romance Writers Weekly blog hop, where every week a great group of romance writers answer questions and accept challenges. Diverse in what we write, we are unified in the quest to bring you, the romance reader, a very happy ever after.

You can join us daily on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/RomanceWritersWeekly/

 

If you’re starting your blog hop here, or just hopping over from A. S. Fenichel’s blog,  welcome.

Today I’m posing the question: Let’s take a trip. Pretend your publisher has offered you a two week vacation anywhere in the world to inspire a new novel. Where do you go and why?

So where would be a good place to go to inspire an out-of-this-world science fiction romance?

How about a trip to the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum?

That sounds like a good place to start my trip.

Then maybe the next stop could be the Museum of Science fiction in Washington DC.

Last stop on my out-of-this-world vacation would have to be Seattle, WA and the Museum of Pop Culture.

Talk about a great get-away.

Do you know any other great ways to take off on an otherworldly adventure without a space ship? Let me know in the comments down below.
