Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Reconnaissance by Aubrie Dionne

Young Adult Sci-Fi/Dystopian 
Date Published: 4/29/2013

Nova Williams has lost her one shot at Lieutenant hood and at love. Lieutenant Crophaven has promoted her rival, Andromeda, all because her lifemate, Sirius, sacrificed their mission to win back Andromeda’s love. 

While sneaking out to prove Andromeda is a fake, Nova finds an alien ship hovering over their colony. Lieutenant Crophaven assigns her to a reconnaissance mission, giving her a second chance to redeem herself. Sirius must fly her and a research team to the vessel to decide if they are a threat. Thrown together with the lifemate that betrayed her, she battles with her own jealousy while her team battles for their lives. 

Can she forgive Sirius in order to save her team and warn her colony?

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Oh yes! I write everyday with long term goals in mind. I try to write 4-5 books a year and have 4-5 new releases per year. I take writing very seriously but still try to have fun while doing it.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

At first it was the rejections. Then, it was reading bad reviews. Now, I don’t let either get to me. I can’t please everyone all of the time. All I can do is try to make each book better. I’d say now the synopsis is the hardest part because I try to write it before I write the book so I have a plan and I’m not just wandering around.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My agent, Dawn Dowdle of Blue Ridge Literary Agency. She is awesome. She likes every book I write, and doesn’t give up on any of them. She’ll query every publishing house there is until my book finds a home. She’s taught so much about patience and perseverance.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I’m working on a new contemporary YA sci fi book titled Earth: Population 2. It’s about the end of the world!

I’m also writing the sequel to a fantasy romance that I just contracted through Lyrical Press. Book 1, Minstrel’s Serenade will come out August 2014.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I love to read. I’m currently reading the first book of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones. It’s so much darker than what I write, it’s good for me to read.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3? I love my Ipad.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? Mashed Potatoes, or sweet potato fries.

#4 – Comedy or Drama? Neither! I like sci fi/fantasy movies.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? Neither. I read a lot of sci fi/fantasy

#6 – Fantasy or Reality? Fantasy. But you know that by now!

#7 – Call or Text? Text. I’m awful on the phone.

#8 – Public School or Home School? I went to public school. It had its advantages.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate?- Both. Combined!

#10 – eBook or Paperback? I read both, although I prefer paper.

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could reenact every scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek The Next Generation-favorite character is Data-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all-time favorite movie is The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be "A Concert Flutist" when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now. 
Now for the professional bio:
Aubrie Dionne is an author and flutist in New England. Her books have received the highest ratings from Romance Times Magazine, as well as Night Owl Reviews and Two Lips Reviews. Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf. Her books are published by Astraea Press, Spencer Hill Press, Entangled Publishing, Inkspell Publishing, Lyrical Press, and Gypsy Shadow Publishing. When she's not writing, Aubrie teaches flute and plays in orchestras.
