Please join me today in welcoming Patrica Josephine (aka the lovely Patricia Lynne) to my blog to talk about alien werewolves and he new book, Abducted Life, which launched this week.
Creating an Alien Werewolf
by Patricia Josephine
In Abducted Life, there is a scene were I describe the alien creature Savannah has been spliced with. She sees a bipedal animal covered in white fur with a dog-like snout. The image I wanted to portray was that of a classical werewolf. Although, this one doesn't turn human when there's no full moon. I also describe a certain body part that my beta readers said grossed them out. (That was intentional.) I had in mind cats and the fact that male cats have barbs on their penises for that scene.
For the most part, Savannah's looks don't change. Her physical abilities and mannerisms are what's effected. She's faster and stronger, and gets the urge to procreate during the full moon. Another thing that she hasn't really noticed, and it's not in the story, is she's developed an appetite for meat and often takes her steaks at medium rate to rare. Before she wouldn't be caught dead eating something cooked below medium or bloody.
About the BookAbducted Life
by Patricia Joesphine
Savannah Janowitz’s perfect life was destroyed the night she and her boyfriend vanished without a trace. When she reappears a year later––alone––she’s a shell of her former self. Robbed of her popularity and her boyfriend, she has no memory of what happened to her. Savannah struggles to move forward as strange, new abilities manifest.
Evan Sullivan never gave extra-terrestrials much thought until the night he and Savannah were abducted. While Savannah’s memory was wiped clean, he remembers every horrific detail. Constantly reminded of the experiments that made him less than human, Evan hides in the shadows and watches Savannah rebuild her life without him. But neither can let the other go.
When their paths cross, Savannah and Evan finally see a glimmer of their old lives return. As they face what happened to them, they soon discover they aren’t safe. There’s more to fear than what’s hiding in the stars.
