    Well Cara — Best of luck in ALL that you set your mind to. You seem like you like to branch out, take risks and such. Good for you.

    In your bio you say that you’ve been a writer all of your life. Did you keep a journal as a child/teen? How did YOU come to first put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and make the switch from Reporter to PR? In PR you must have used your imagination to capture your audience — to sway others to the products/services, etc. that you represented. Was the leap to writing to capture THIS audience a hard one and how did you first start?

    Keep writing Cara – your works are artistry.


    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thank you for the comment Doni!I did keep a journal as a kid, off and on. I always liked to write. When the other kids would complain about having to write a term paper, I’d complain, too, but secretly relish the assignment! I went into journalism because I wnted to write and I could see a direct career path tied to a college degree. After a while, I just wanted to do something different, and PR was an easy segue. I worked for several different industries (non-profit, aerospace & insurance) and wrote a huge variety of different types of materials. Writing erotic romance is FUN. Way more fun than journalism or PR! Writing is always work, but there’s a big element to it that seems like play. I get to sit at my computer and make stuff up! It doesn’t get better than that. Interesting though…in my current erotic romance in progress, the heroine works in insurance but wants to become a newspaper columnist. So the past is always useful fodder…

  6. rd says:

    Loved this series….will there be a book about Ilianas well? Will there be more about children? When? Looking foreward to reading more!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      I’m thinking about a spin-off set on Parseon involving the grown children of the Breeder characters. Not quite sure what it will be yet.

    Hi, Cara!
    I try to buy Reasonable DOUBTS from several times but it looks likes the government here block certain kind of book to be bought from here. They just stated ” this book is not available to be sell in your country” how frustrating!!!
    ROLLIN told me to contact you… Whether you can help me.

  10. Ruth says:

    I have just completed the Breeder series. I really love the stories and the setting. Is there any hope of some more books from this series? These are the first books of yours I have read. Great writing and great escapism!

    • Cara Bristol says:

    Would love the book Breeder. I get my books thru amazon. Thank you

  13. R. Michelle says:

    Hi Cara, I’m so glad to see an author supporting other authors. What you do is great. I stumbled upon your blog and found it so inspiring. I wasn’t sure how to get support from other authors because the few authors that I spoke to on goodreads aren’t so nice. Not saying that all of them are like that, but it seems the ones I ran across are. They don’t mind leaving a negative review of one anothers books. And that bothers me because I’ve read some of their reviews and they are harsh. Even if I’m not taken with another authors work I prefer to not review at all. As authors we are suppose to lift each other up not tear each other down. I’m for the positive and will continue to support other authors. How do I reach out to positive authors to tell them about my book? In two months or so, I plan to release it again but it’s going to be a better version of itself. I had to go back to the drawing board. And hope I don’t encounter any authors that don’t mind bashing each other.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Yeah, Goodreads is known for being a little harsh. However, it is where READERS hang out, so it’s worth it. The best way to get to know other authors is to participate on Facebooks groups devoted to your genre. Find one where discussions actually take place, some group are nothing more than promo blasts. Getting to know authors is like making friends (because it IS making friends): it takes time and the intent must be genuine. You have to make the first move. Review other authors books. Promote their work. If you help them, they’ll notice you.

  14. Deborah Patterson says:

    You are a new author name to me. I look forward to reading your books. Thanks for the giveaway…Deborah

  15. Lori Hammons says:

    Going to check out the Cyborg book. Thanks.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thanks, Lori. Stranded with the Cyborg will be released Sept. 22, 2015. You can read the first part of chapter one here on my blog, under the Chapter One-Free Read tab.

  16. Diana Ware Page says:

    Love the new genre of cyborgs and aliens taking off in writing these days. Thanks for the chance to win the Amazon gift card

  17. Diana Ware Page says:

    Would Lov3 to see Abigail Brescia break out of family movies and really sinker teeth into being a sexy cyborg !!

  18. Paula-Jean says:

    I love your Cyborg books. I can’t wait for more. Are you planning to add a book list by category to your website? it would be great to follow all your books.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thank you! I do have a book list. If you look at my header, there’s a pull down menu under “My Books.”

  19. Robin Peacock says:

    How do I unsubscribe?

    • Cara Bristol says:

      If you mean my blog, I’ll remove your name from the list. If you mean the newsletter, there’s an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the last newsletter you received (at the bottom of every newsletter). Click on it.

  20. Hey, Cara,

    I tried to sign up to host your Domestic Discipline tour with Goddessfish but the tour was already full. If you’d like to guest at Beyond Romance and talk about the book, get in touch by email (lisabet at lisabetsarai dot com).


  21. Paula d'Etcheverry says:

    Hi, Cara,
    A fellow author led me to you, and really recommended Breeders, but I can’t find the first book. Is it not available any longer?

  22. Sherri N. says:

    Hi Cara,
    I also would like to locate and purchase the first book in the Breeders series “Breeder”. It is no longer available on any book site that I subscribe to. Could you please advise when it might be made available again? Thank you!

  23. I posted links to your series on advertising free books on the Tucson RWA loop, and got this interesting reply today:

    From: Anne Gaston
    Subject: Advertising free books
    I love when authors are so willing to share their experiences and document
    them the way Cara did. After reading the blog posts, I downloaded the free
    book to see what she’s working with not only in her stories but in her
    front and backmatter as well, for sell-through reference.

  24. Cathy says:

    Wanted to read Krinar’s Desire but Kindle Worlds hasn’t made it available in Canada. None of the Krinar Chronicle (Novellas) are available. I contacted Amazon, and they told me I had to contact the publisher. Since Kindle Worlds is essentially a division of Amazon. I just feel like I’m getting the run around.

    So, I guess you can kiss goodbye a potential 35 million Canadian readers/purchasers.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Hi Cathy. I understand your frustration. I’m not happy about it either. I don’t know why Amazon chose to make it’s Kindle Worlds program US only. However, as the author, I might be able to get you a copy. I just emailed you.

  25. angela says:

    I am new to you (I bought Pets in Space 2, because of SE Smith, Michelle Howard, and MK Ediem). I am currently listening to Stranded with the Cyborg and I am loving it. I wanted to know if all your other books in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series will be released in Audiobook. I really hope so because I want to know more about the cyborgs and hopefully more of Pia and Brock.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Hi Angela! Glad you’re enjoying the series. The 2nd book, Mated with the Cyborg, is available in audio format, too.

  26. Debra Schlesener says:

    I haven’t met anyone famous but I would love to meet Ian Somerhalder from the Vampire Diaries.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thanks for the comment. Somehow your post got on the wrong thread, but I’ll remember to add you to the entries for the Alien Attraction Celebrity Name Game contest.

  27. Cat Fischer says:

    Good morning – I just bought “Hunted by a Cyborg” and the contents stated that there was an additional “Cyborg Attraction” at the end of the book. I’m afraid there was nothing but the titles you wrote at the end. Was there pages missing from my e-book? Thanks. Cat

  28. Christel Goedecke says:

    Hi Cara,

    Just started reading Under Fyre. I am enjoying it. But it is a bit off putting when you say Mauna Loa was erupting in Hawaii. That one’s been extinct for millenia, so there wouldn’t have been people and surrounding cities to be affected. The Kilauea volcano
    is the one currently erupting. There is also a new island forming south of the Big Island which has not yet surfaced.

    Geological fact: all the hundreds of Hawaiian islands were created when they were located above the active ocean floor vent. All the islands are moving very, very slowly NW, and are being submerged and being forced bank under the mantel.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      According to my research, Mauna Loa last erupted on April 14, 1984. It’s still active. As my story takes place in the future, I believe that another big eruption could occur.

  29. Nancy says:

    Hi Cara
    I just found the Krinar Chronicles and really like it. I saw in the back of the book that you wrote a story in the Krinar World, titled Krinar’s Desire. Do you know how or where I could get a eBook copy of it. I am a subscriber to your email list.
    Thanks so much.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Hi Nancy, Unfortunately, Krinar’s Desire isn’t available anymore. I wrote it for Amazon’s Kindle Worlds, which has been discontinued, and I chose not to continue with Krinar series so I could focus on my own worlds and books.

  30. Mary Jorgensen says:

    I just finished Alien Mate and I cannot tell you enough how much I loved it. You managed to create true aliens with different anatomy, customs, and culture. I can remember the days when all the aliens seemed to be humans in alien ‘clothes’.
    I know you probably don’t need one, but if you need an editor or beta reader, please feel free to contact me. I am a professional technical editor for a small publisher in the Los Angeles area.
