A great week so far, Survived Facebook Event, Happiness from Julie's Book Review & an Awesome Gang Interview

Well, I survived Saturday's Facebook event and here's my new author photo:

Okay, I'm an introvert, so sue me.

Then on Sunday I found that Clabe Polk gave Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone five Stars at Julie's Book Review:

Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone is a quick reading science fiction/fantasy novelette that is terrifically entertaining. Lynne Murray has managed to weave a fine story line that includes sex, and pheromone-based sex appeal, female-v-male dominance, male disrespect/abuse of women, and the social pressure on modern women to adhere to an unrealistic physical image prescribed by modern culture. Read the whole review at Positive thinking leads to positive outcomes!!! Julies Book Review: Review of Gravitas by Lynne Murray Then a fun interview with the Awesome Gang showed up.

One cool question:

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?

Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone came from two ideas and my own, as usual, contrarian reaction to them. One was a book by Carl Jung,, Flying Saucers : A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies. He suggested that we are witnessing the formation of a religion in the shape of the UFO craze. The other was reading paranormal romances where the heroine has many lovers (just can’t help herself). I thought, what if that was the rule, and women who only wanted one husband were mistrusted. Then it was a matter of turning the world upside down in the book, which is one of my favorite parts of writing! You can read the whole interview here!
