So head on down and get to know a little bit about Sandra Sookoo


I’m so excited to be on the Book Corner this week! You’re in for a fantastic week of teaser snippets, blurbs and interview fun.

If you don’t know who I am and are unfamiliar with my work, let me introduce myself. My name is Sandra Sookoo. You can find me at http://www.sandrasookoo.com and discover the recipe for a good romance. Over the years I’ve written stories that range in heat levels from sweet to heat and written over several genres. I do this because it keeps my brain from becoming burned out and keeps me sharp.

I think the readers like it as well.

Today, let me tell you a bit of what happened when I decided I wanted to write in the sci-fi genre. A big bunch of trouble, that’s what! LOL Seriously, I had no idea what I didn’t know until I submitted my first story in the genre. Blink was put through the wringer, torn apart then pieced back together again with added word count and new direction. But I learned a lot and went on to write another book in the sci-fi genre Damaged Cargo.

I like sci-fi because not only do I get the opportunity to build completely different worlds, invent interesting races and cause my characters to interact in very different ways. It’s the most difficult genre I’ve written in, but that’s okay. I love it and have three other sci-fi pieces planned for 2011.

In the meanwhile here are the blurbs for both Damaged Cargo and Blink!


Damaged Cargo


When survival is of the utmost importance, it’s best to shoot first and ask questions later, especially if you won’t like the answers.

The 22nd century is heinous. Finding a comfortable life in the Levinese Galaxy grows increasingly difficult.

Emma Gardine, one of a handful of female pirate captains in this throwback Victorian society, begs, borrows, steals and cheats her way through the planetary system on the hunt of a profit. An expert of guarding her heart and keeping people out, she never shows remorse and uses people until she gets what she wants, yet the hope for a normal life glimmers just beyond her reach. Then she meets Tarik Vartouth and her world splinters with new emotions and possibilities.

Tarik survived the murder of his sisters and the collapse of his laid-back existence. He’s sick of the mandatory breeding programs for genetic supremacy on Nazulara that sends innocent people to death and desires to campaign for democracy for his species. When the opportunity to befriend Emma is presented, he takes it and makes a play for her ship in order to carry out his own plot for revenge against his father—the Premier and ruler of the planet. Stakes are raised when sparks between him and Emma fly. Now their future and Nazulara’s, hangs in the balance.


 Blink


Which man is her destiny? Charlotte Jackson knows everything about her small portion of the galaxy but nothing about the secrets of her heart.

Her life is as unstable as a supernova when her ship—the Copernicus—is visited by a blue-haired alien who calls himself Garreth. He tells her he’d like to build an alliance with Earth to improve the dire problems of both their planets. As if intergalactic space negotiations weren’t complicated enough, Charlotte finds herself more than a little attracted to the man who she should be thinking about in only the most professional terms. This does nothing to make her second-in-command—and would-be lover Jax—any more relaxed about the whole cooperation.

When her ship is attacked by the very beings Garreth wants to save them from, Charlotte and Jax will have to put their feelings for the blue-haired alien aside and focus on saving not only themselves but the entire galaxy. What the three find at the end could be the most valuable commodity of all.



Snippet:

An explosion of light swallowed the rest of her suggestion and forced Charlotte to shield her eyes from the intense brightness. “Jax?”

“Our sensors are off-line. I’m calling security now.”

“Good.” She hoped the panic she felt didn’t trickle into her voice.

As suddenly as it appeared, the brightness faded and in its place stood a being—a human from what Charlotte could tell.

“Who are you, and how did you get on my ship?”

Hi :)
Thank you Sandra for the post, and for being here. I really enjoyed the blurbs too.
I haven't really read any SF Romance but I have read many many SF books.
All the best,
RKCharron

Thanks for dropping by RK and Kristen. :-)

I have read SF romance ie Gena Showalter and have liked it. I tend to stick with paranormal romance though. I loved the excerpt and will go check out your site. Thank you.

Thanks Victoria! I think you'll enjoy Blink.

I have read some in the sci fi romance genre. I tend to read paranormal and suspense, but enjoy the occasional foray into sci-fi.

Damaged Cargo sounds like a great read... I'm not so much in to 3's whether a triangle or otherwise, so Blink is probably not really up my alley.

I tend to prefer sweet to heat - and I often skim the sex scenes...don't yell at me...

I am trying diligently not to continue that practice as authors that I have met get really upset when they hear that!

Thanks for sharing with us today!

They sound fun!

Jessica Subject November 8, 2010 at 1:12 PM  

I am currently writing Sci-Fi romance right now, so I am interested in what Sandra has to say about the subject.

Sandra Sookoo November 8, 2010 at 2:53 PM  

Thanks Ren. I'm not offended. Heat preference is different for everyone which is why I write across all heat levels :-) Thanks for buying the two books. I'm sure you'll like both of them.

Jessica--Thanks. I don't know how much help I'll be since I'm fairly new at it myself lol
