#PetsInSpace Challenge: See author Cara Bristol dressed as an alien!

When Pets in Space released, I challenged readers to predict the ending of Spark of Attraction, my story in the anthology. I said if they were not genuinely surprised by the story’s ending, I would post of picture me dressed as a alien. On the honor system, they had to email me and tell me they had it figured out before they finished the story.

Out of the thousands of people who have bought Pets in Space, ONE person emailed me. Only one. So I think I wrote a pretty good story! But a deal is a deal.

Just so you can tell the difference, here’s a bio photo:


Now, me as an alien….




Are you ready?





Is it any wonder I leaned toward writing science fiction romance?

Spark of Attraction blurb

Memory: intact. Cognitive function: enhanced. Emotion: erased. After becoming a cyborg, Captain Dante Stone didn’t think he’d ever feel again, until a traumatized young woman and a ball of synthetic fur named Sparky helped him to love.
