I love spaceships #sfrb

Hi andAFFL-Button150 welcome to my worlds. It’s the first of April and we all know that’s April Fool’s Day, so the SFR Station has set up a blog hop entitled April Fools for Love. There’s a heap of great prizes, including here on my blog, so keep on reading.

If you’ve read my bio just about everywhere, you’d know I’m a fool for spaceships. One of my all-time favourites is Darth Vader’s flagshExecutor_and_escortsip, Executor. It took over from the smaller, but still very sexy, Imperial Star Destroyers. There they are, at right. I’ll never forget that wonderful scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Darth Vader is looking out of the viewscreen on the Executor‘s bridge – and it eclipses an ISD! Whoa, that’s one big ship! I fell in love there and then. I saw the movie three times in the first week and I’ve watched it a hundred times at least. I’ve even been known to skip all the Skywalker stuff to get to THAT SCENE. My heart still goes pit-a-pat.

Closer to home, Morgan’s Choice has a new cover. The old cover had a spaceship on it, too. But I found this new spaceship and fell in love. I’m a tart, I know.MC Poster2

Kuralon-Rescue-ebook-webSo it shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody that for my Morgan’s Misfits stories I have added a very, very sexy spaceship. It was designed by Morgan, so it’s pretty special. And here it is, starring on the new cover for Kuralon Rescue. It’ll be on every cover of the Morgan’s Misfits books. If I get around to another one. Yes, you’re right, it’s a ship from DAZ, rendered by my wonderful cover designer, Rebecca Poole of Dreams2Media. But in MY books, the ship’s name is Vulsaur. It’s Admiral Ravindra’s personal yacht which was first introduced to readers in Morgan’s Return. Vulsaur comes to the rescue in Kuralon Rescue, and now it has become the Misfit’s own ship.

Ink_GvdRI expect you’d like to know how it got the name Vulsaur? Indeed, what is a Vulsaur? That’s a Vulsaur, that tattoo on young Ravindra’s shoulder. You’ll get all the answers in that short story. (Notice I’m not always obsessed with spaceships.) šŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by. Please share your favourite space ship stories. One lucky commenter will receive a copy of Ink, Supertech and the Iron Admiral: Conspiracy – don’t forget to tell me in your comment if you’d like the books as pdf, epub or mobi. Contest closes at the end of April, so you’ll have plenty of time.

We’ve set up an event on Facebook and we’d love you to join in at April Fools for Love. Things will be happening all through April. Prize winners will be announced on 1st May.

Do go and read some of the other marvellous posts in the SFR Station’s April Fools for Love blog hop.

    Oh, yes, the Executor is an amazing ship. The Vulsaur looks pretty awesome too. šŸ™‚

    I thought the Naboo Royal Starship at the beginning of Star Wars Ep II was pretty sweet (even though the movie was not). Very awesome spaceship.

    I grew up with Dr Who and was convinced one day I would have my own Tardis (I wanted a Dalek too, but that’s a tale for another day lol!!) but now I wonder if I set the standard a little low – there are such great ships out there!!

    Nah! I’d still probably want my own Tardis – after all I can land/visit on any of the other ships whenever I wanted and have the best of both worlds!! šŸ™‚

      To me the Tardis is a bit like a truck. Useful but not sexy. Still, just as well we won’t all be fighting for it.

      The old Falcon, eh? I’ve always had to wonder about that dish on the top. But it’s different. And I liked Han.

    I’m a spaceship tart, too! Wholly unfaithful to all of the drool-worthy ships of the past, and ready to fall for the next cool thing that comes along. My favorite at present is the bubble-copter from Oblivion, which I lust after!

    Just thinking about the logistics of an aircraft carrier in space gives the logical materials management part of me the warm fuzzies

      That’s basically what these big ships are. Thank goodness for 3D printing. And hydroponics.
