Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - Maria's Match by Astrid Cielo

Sci-Fi Romance
Date Published: 1/21/2013

It was love at first sight...

Silvius fell head over boots in love with the fiesty Latina nurse the first time he saw her, helping keep a battered woman alive.  Having lost everyone he loves to the terrible disease that nearly left their planet extinct, he thinks he has found his mate.  

She was instantly attracted to the alien, and that scared her to death...

Maria shared a blissful and life-changing night with Silvius, losing her heart and gaining the baby now growing within her womb.  But old hurts won't let her stay and accept that Silvius loves her.  So Maria runs-- like she always does.

Little does Maria know that she has finally met her match...

Be advised:  Content intended for persons age 18+.  Contains violence and scenes of a sexual nature (but not at the same time!).

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I see writing as a second career...the first being a nurse. I love both so much that I
could never fathom quiting either one! I love the one on one with patients as I help
them through some of their most difficult times, but on the flip side I have too much
imagination to be writing has always been a stress reliever for me. I just didn’t
realize how much I would enjoy publishing my works for others to enjoy!

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
It has to be ending a work! As I write plot ideas just start forming and sometimes it’s
hard to quit adding things to something. I can’t count the number of unfinished works
that I’ve accumulated over the years!

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of
Your Family?
I owe a lot to Riley-Kate Chase, who self-published her own book prior to myself! She
really motivated me in that area! I am also super thankful for T.C. Stutts who reads my
works before I release them to the public! She’s a really great friend and lover of books.
I count myself lucky to know her!

#4 – What is next for your writing?
Oh! That’s a loaded question! I have so many plans!!! Right now I’m working on Part 2
of the Pinewood Creek Shifters series, Begging for Forgiveness. I’m also elbow deep in
the second installment of The Chronicles of JJ-State of Resistance. My current WIP page
is littered with the books I have planned!!!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently
I love to read! I am currently reading Their Virgin Princess from the Masters of Menage
series by Lexi Blake and Shayla Black! It’s getting pretty steamy!

Astrid Cielo is a Mississippi girl who enjoys a variety of things. By night, she is a nurse in her local ER, and by day, she is spilling her imagination out on paper.
Astrid began writing when she was a child her stories featuring a variety of characters (including her imaginary friends). When she was in high school she wrote her first completed story and was published twice in poetry anthologies. Gathering her courage, Astrid self-published her first book, Surrender Serenity, Salin's Salvation, Book 1 and enjoyed every minute of it.
Now she balances her time between being a nurse (which she loves) and writing down the scenes that play out in her mind. She also plays World of Warcraft (which all of her friends think is weird)!
Astrid would love to hear from you!
