Interview: Melissa Landers & #Giveaway

I love this series by Melissa Landers and I am excited to have her on my blog today. You can check out my review of Alienated here and Invaded, book two here . 



For all the people that don't know can you tell us a bit about the series!

For those who haven't heard of this series, ALIENATED is about a high school senior named Cara Sweeney who agrees to host the nation's first alien exchange student, a total hottie named Aelyx. The two get off to a rough start, but eventually they become friends and then...much more than friends. In the sequel, INVADED, Cara travels to Aelyx's home planet, L'eihr, while he stays on Earth to help rebuild the alliance between their worlds.

Why aliens?

Why NOT aliens? They're fascinating to write about! 

I love the cover designs. They are some of my favorite! Do you have a say in the cover design? How does the process of picking a cover work?

Generally speaking, authors have very little say in their cover art, and I'm no exception. However, I think the designers at Disney did a wonderful job. I especially love the vibrancy of the ALIENATED cover. It really stands out in a sea of dark books on the shelf.  

If you had one tweet (140 characters) to encourage people to read your series what would it be?

I'd probably use the tweet I sent on release day: The ALIENATED series is here, and interplanetary relations have never been hotter! 

If you enjoyed ALIENATED, don't forget to check out UNTIL MIDNIGHT, which is a **FREE** short story that takes place between books one and two. It's a sweet, romantic account of Aelyx and Cara's last day together on the intergalactic transport before he returns to Earth and she continues to L'eihr. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it!

  11. I haven't read them but really, really want to. My library doesn't have Alienated so I haven't been able to get my hands on a copy! I love aliens stories! Re-watching Roswell because I'm missing an aliens story; then I'll be re-watching Star-Crossed! Thank you so much for the chance!

  14. The idea of alien and human cross species love is so cool. Vampires and werewolves have been done many a time, so why not aliens? I love it. It feels like a fresh take on contemporary romance with a paranormal take. Hopefully this book will be Out Of This World!
