So today I will be sharing with you some images that assisted me while creating the Platonians in my newest release, Visionary From The Stars!
The Platonians are 'lizard like' aliens with thick scaly bodies and long tails. They also sport sharp pointy teeth. Also, while they may be my antagonists, there is also a group of them that actually help our Star Traveler team!

I tried to find a look alike for Dr. Eric Smith but the best I could come up with was Robert Downy Jr. here in this picture.

This guy reminds me of what I always imagined Mr. Gorioshi Higashi looks like

Just pick a favorite book off of your shelf (or a story you are currently writing) and click on the image below for info on how to join in on the fun!



Laurie Kingston is the Main Character in my book Visionary From The Stars. Getting her to pick just one favorite book was like pulling teeth without novocaine.

Laurie: YEAH! What he said!

Me: I still need you to pick one... I have to head to bed SOMETIME here!

Laurie: Oh I forgot, you have a 'real job' now. *rolls her eyes sarcastically*

Me: You remember how tired you were during your first mission after you were so nervous the night before that you didn't sleep? Remember having to take a nap before you flew through the meteor field?

Laurie: Yeah...

Me: Well then you know what it is like!

*Laurie Nods*

Laurie: I guess we both need to get some better sleep huh. Favorite book first... Hmmm, how about:

Image result for Little House On The Prairie

Me: Oh, interesting choice. I've not read that one since I was a young girl.

Laurie: Not just the one... the whole series

Me: O.o somehow I think that is cheating.

Laurie: Take it or leave it.

Me: Fine, why then?

Laurie: Earth an many of the other human colonies have become so tied to technology. When I found out that Exandra was going to be built more rural, for those that wanted to farm or study nature... I wanted to do some research into what the early settlers went through. I really enjoyed the detail put into those books.
Me: Hmm, ok good answer!

If any of you are interested in learning more about Laurie or Exandra you can read more in Visionary From The Stars, now available here: https://www.amazon.com/Visionary-Stars-V-L-Jennings-ebook/dp/B07HWVNH5X

Day 3 The Platonian's Favorite Song


Exploring New Worlds Blog Challenge Day 3 Find your bad guy's favorite song! You can join this challenge too! On a blog or on social media, whether you are a writer OR a reader! Just pick a favorite book off of your shelf (or a story you are currently writing) and click on the image below for info on how to join in on the fun!



The Platonians, specifically their Military Guild, are the Antagonists in my newest release Visionary From The Stars. They have spent so many years trying to stop others from finding the cylinder relics, it is a shame really. Many of their kind have become disenfranchised with the way the Military Guild has been doing things... they've taken to living in secret cities to escape being drafted into a battle they feel is unnecessary.

The Military Guild's most recent accomplishment has been simulating Exandra's legendary blizzard with the added effect of managing to knock out the human colony's electrical system. Therefore, this is currently their favorite song:

Ho Boy... awfully sure of themselves aren't they. They do end up blowing up a few ships with our friends onboard so... I think I'll step out of their way for now.

Just pick a favorite book off of your shelf (or a story you are currently writing) and click on the image below for info on how to join in on the fun!



Laurie from my newest release Visionary From The Stars... I never really figured out what her favorite song is so I wandered over to You Tube to see what resonated with her character. She seems like she would really like this one:



Me: Laurie, can you tell us why you like this one?
Laurie: Sure, it works great as a memory exercise, trying to remember all the words to this one is challenging. I also like how they managed to weave all that history into just one song.

She's an odd kid lol.

If you are even remotely interested in ordering a copy of Visionary From The Stars for yourself you can find it here: Visionary From The Stars On Amazon!

Day1 A Song That Reminds Me of Visionary From The Stars


To kick off this month's Exploring New Worlds Blog Challenge, I will be trying to match my newest release to a song that reminds me of it. You can join this challenge too, whether you are a writer OR a reader- on your blog OR on social media! Just pick a favorite book off of your shelf (or a story you are currently writing) and click on the image below for info on how to join in on the fun!




 As I mentioned, this month I will be exploring my newest release, Visionary From The Stars... Oh Wait! You guys haven't seen the cover yet! Well today is your lucky day!

There you have it folks! A Shiny new cover!

Now, what song reminds me of Visionary? I have two...



This one probably because I was watching this series pretty seriously when I was doing the bulk of the story building for this book.

This one... Not sure, it has always resonated with me. It helped me get a handle (or as much of a handle as my earthbound self could possibly hope to get) on the helplessness an astronaut might feel in space when something goes wrong.

Interested?

You can find Visionary From The Stars out on kindle today!!!
