Jessica E. Subject’s Weekly Writing Update ~ Alien Kisses at Midnight is finished!

Jessica E. Subject's Writing Update ~ Find out what she's working on and what's releasing soon.

Hello! It’s Tuesday, and time for another update.

Alien Kisses At Midnight by Jessica E. SubjectALIEN KISSES AT MIDNIGHT ~ I’ve finished! This  will be a New Years’ Eve short alien romance FREE for my newsletter subscribers, and will be sent out between December 25, 2015 and January 1, 2016. If you’re not a subscriber, you can be one by subscribing here: I started at 3,685 words, and I’m now at 5,408, for a total of 2,351 new words. Now, I have to self-edit, which will likely add new words, before I send to a beta reader.

BRYCE ~ I started at 5, 416 words, and finished the week at 5,568 words, for a total of 152 new words. Not a lot of new words, but I’m back to working on this story.

REWRITES ~ I recently received the rights back to An Unexpected Return and Made For Her. With Made For Her, I will be rewriting the ending. An Unexpected Return will be rewritten throughout, as it was part of a multi-author series at my publisher, and has some proprietary places and names. The tone of the story will completely change, and the story will be expanded a great deal. For that reason, I will likely give it a new name when I re-release it. So, I will be working on these two stories as well.

GOALS FOR THE WEEK ~ I will write as many words as possible on Bryce and/or edit one of the rewrites mentioned above.

MOVIE UPDATE ~ I watched two movies over the weekend, Max and San Andreas. I loved Max! Warning! There are many sad parts in the movie, but it does not have a sad ending like some movies about dogs. It sheds light on dog training, and how dogs are used to help the military in their missions. But, it’s also a sweet story about a boy learning to love a dog, and to understand his brother. San Andreas was okay. It was full of action, but it reminded me of The Day After Tomorrow, where a child travels away from their parents, an extreme natural disaster happens, and the parents have to rescue their child, hoping their child is able to survive.

Please share what you have been up to this week….

Forget the horrors. Remember…me.

A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost in the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. Uncharacteristically halting his carriage, he is shocked to discover the thin, dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, a beautiful angel who captured his heart at a grand ball more than two years past. For Colborne, her circumstance is a mystery he feels honor bound to unravel.

Chastity and her siblings have been on the run for more than two years. Desperate for food and lodging money, she is forced to sell herself. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. She is given a choice, continue down the path of never-ending poverty or become the baron’s mistress.

Though they are both determined the arrangement remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash’s path. Can the baron and the mistress embrace true love?

The naked man behind the curtain #MySexySaturday from ANOTHER NIGHT, ANOTHER PLANET #1NS @DecadentPub

My Sexy Saturday

Hello and welcome to the 119th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.

Today’s theme is…


Here’s seven from ANOTHER NIGHT, ANOTHER PLANET,  a sci-fi romance 1Night Stand story that takes place on another planet. Enjoy!

Another Night, Another Planet, an erotic sci-fi romance by Jessica E. Subject

Set-up: Ava and Nate have both arranged a date with the 1Night Stand dating service, though they never expected to be reunited with each other. 

Ava’s cheeks burned as she gazed at the naked man who’d drawn back the curtain. Nate. Her first lover. The first guy to break her heart. Tanned skin covered his muscular body. He’d kept his hair short and even his nether region was trimmed to show off his large cock. By far the most gorgeous man she had ever seen, improved even more over the star cycles, he watched her, his face void of any expression.

Nate is one of my favorite heroes. There are more descriptions of him, but not in the same section, so thus, this is all you get. Will Ava give him a second chance?

~ About Another Night, Another Planet ~

Limited by status…

Ava is a housekeeper aboard Star Spirit, a luxury cruise ship travelling between the Milky Way and the Belvarian System. Coming from a middle-class family on Earth, she is considered by passengers as nothing more than an object to be tossed away when they’re done with her.

Shunned because of his lineage…

Banned from several planets across the universe, Nate struggles to run his interstellar shipping business. But the DNA of an exterminated race runs through his blood, giving him a diluted form of their powers, and leaving him labeled as a terrorist.

Both searching for the one…

Through her 1Night Stand dating service, Madame Evangeline matches these two together for a celestial escape on the pleasure planet, Elatia.

Will Ava and Nate find what they’re looking for, or will their date be just another night on another planet?
