Book Tour for Alien Revealed by Lilly Cain (Interview & GIVEAWAY)

As a fan of sci-fi I'm always on the lookout for books featuring this theme and have found an exciting and sexy start to a new series courtesy of Lilly Cain and her release, Alien Revealed.  Lilly is here today answering some of my dying to know questions as well as letting me give away a digital copy of her book.  So let's give a warm welcome to Lilly Cain........

TSP:  How did you get where you are today with your writing career and would you have done anything differently?

LC:  I can remember one of my mentors, best selling author Julianne MacLean, telling me to persist, that my writing as good, that sometimes it is just a matter of hitting the right editor at the right time, with the right book. She was really right, but one thing I should have focused on was to write longer books – which would have opened up more editors as potential sales. What I have learned over the years is to keep writing, keep reading, and write what feels good to you – it shows in your work!

TSP:  Your books are mostly paranormal/sci-fi in nature.  What draws you to these genres and why do you think they appeal to readers?

LC:  For me, and I suspect for most readers, the appeal is in the escapism that these genres can offer.  Here we have heroes who really can love you – forever. They can take you out of this world, literally. They offer things and extremes that our lives, bogged with work, family, and everyday events cannot.

TSP:  How would you describe Alien Revealed and how does it connect to The Confederacy Treaty series as a whole?

LC:  Alien Revealed is the first book in my erotic sci-fi romance series, The Confederacy Treaty. It, like the rest of the books, it fairly short at 35,000 words (most of the books are in the 35-40K range) but loaded with action, both inside the bedroom and out. In Alien Revealed we are introduced to the Inarrii – the race of aliens chosen by the Confederacy to initiate first contact with Earth. The Inarrii are sensual beings with the ability to connect on a mental level, and with some really interesting physical differences from humans.

TSP:  What is your ideal writing space look like and do you designate certain times of the day for writing?

LC:  I know I should write at my desk, but the truth is I hardly ever do.  The desk is for internet and email. My laptop and my favorite overstuffed chair, with a steaming cup of French Vanilla Hazelnut coffee is more ideal for me when I am home. I also really like to write at my parent’s cottage, where there is no TV, no internet, and no phone. J That’s the place to get serious work done.

TSP:  How has the digital revolution affected your career and how you market yourself?  Do you have an eReader yourself?

LC:  The digital revolution – which we all have to remember is still ongoing – has really opened up things for erotic romance – I think a lot more people feel comfortable about ordering my books on their ereader than being seen with my hot covers in their hands.  Most of my books are digital only right now. And because people who read ebooks tend to be those more techno inclined, they also tend to be in a hurry.  Shorter books, novellas and the re-emergence of the short story as popular reading are great for my style of writing. I do have an e-reader, a Kindle, and both my children have Kobos.

TSP:  My site is all about favorite things.  What are some of your favorite things, the things you can't live without?

LC:  Favorite things (they also mostly happen to all be bad for you things, coincidence?): coffee, chocolate croissants, a cold bottle of Coke, my cat – when she is being nice – my kids – also when they are being nice – and a view of the water.  Many of these things cannot be had in a coinciding manner, LOL.

Alien Revealed

Carina Press

Inarrii agent Alinna Gaerrii was tasked with observing the Starforce base on Earth. Crash landing her observation pod onto the base was not part of her mission briefing. Neither was making m’ittar—mind contact—with Major David Brown, the human who discovered her amongst the wreckage.

David thinks she’s a psychologist sent to evaluate his Special Forces team, and Alinna goes along with his misconception, seizing the opportunity to observe humans up close. But their daily contact has unexpected side effects, and Alinna soon invades David’s dreams. Through their intimate mental connection she allows him to express his forbidden physical desires.

Alinna delights in the sensory exploration and grows excited by the prospect of a treaty with the humans and a potential life mate in David. But an attack from an unknown ship sends the base into chaos, and Alinna may be forced to reveal her lie, erasing all hope of a successful treaty, and driving David away forever…


Lilly Cain is a wild woman with a deep throaty laugh, plunging necklines and a great lover of all things sensual - perfume, chocolate, silk! She never has to worry about finding a date or keeping a man in line. She keeps her blond hair long and curly, wears beautiful clothes and loves loud music. Lilly lives her private life in the pages of her books.

Lilly lives in Atlantic Canada, although she spent eight years in Bermuda, enjoying the heat and the pink sands. She returned to her homeland so she could see the changing of the seasons once again. When not writing she paints, swills coffee and vodka (but not together), and fights her writing pals for chocolate.

When not living up to her pen name, Lilly is a single mom who loves reading and writing, dabbling in art and loving and caring for her two daughters. She loves romance and the freedom erotic fantasy provides her imagination. She loves the chilling moments in her novels as much as the steaming hot interludes. Her stories are an escape and a release, and she hopes that they can give you that power, too.
