About the Book
Sci-Fi Erotica Romance
Date Published: 1/28/2014
Old earth has been deemed unsuitable for life, New Earth is home. With the Uni-Wars over, races have joined together in order to sustain their way of life. All life was considered worth saving, but only one race failed to submit. Humans.
Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in their eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood, human blood.
Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.
Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn't for her golden skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.
All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.
About the Author
One of Tigris’ fondest memories, was in the sixth grade, when her teacher read her story, “The Case of The Missing Pepperoni”, out loud to the class. It was then she decided she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. But like all childhood dreams, reality has a way of crashing in and disrupting plans. But her imagination and the voices inside her head never stopped talking. Every dream she could remember was jotted down in her dream journals.
Tigris is currently working on the Shadow Unit Series, Romantic Tales: Bedtimes Stories, and has expanded on the Genesis Project which will now be a trilogy introduced in 2014.
Tigris is a military brat who’s done her fair share of travelling, thanks to her Army father. She’s married to the infamous LL and has three boys. She currently resides in Houston and is actively seeking a book-buddy for the end of the world.
You can find Tigris on Twitter, Facebook, and at her website.
EM: First tell us a little about yourself.
T: Let's see...mother of three boys, book lover, music connoisseur, and debater of movies. And of course I tell fantastical and sometimes dark stories collected from the voices in my head, under the pen name Tigris Eden. But for the most part I'm just chill, it's the people around me that are crazy. :)
EM: That reminds me of the t-shirt my husbands has. "I do what the voices in my wife's head tell me." How do you find time to write with the kids? I know it's struggle for me with my three!
T: Well, I started my life a lot earlier than was planned. My youngest is 16 and my oldest is 19, soon to be 20 and there’s a 17 year old soon to be 18 in the middle. I had Darryl (Oldest) when I was 16 and my two younger sons who I adore to pieces came with my better half LL. When they were younger it was near to impossible to write. I did manage to have a poem published somewhere in there while they were in grade school. But now, they pretty much leave me alone. My 19 year old actually enjoys reading my books! ( I should probably be worried) LOL.
But in all honestly I still have to check in with them, make sure they’re being responsible and of course have numerous talks about real life situations. It was hard to find balance at first, because when I said, “I’m going to do the damn thing and write,” it was hard for them and me. So we came up with a schedule. Writing time, and then family time. Now it’s mostly writing time, as I've lost some cool points. They all have jobs and don’t really require my assistance as much anymore.
EM: That actually makes me kind of sad. Mine are younger and I'm thinking of the day when it's all writing time because they don't need me anymore! Boohoo!!! Okay, mommy moment over. How many books do you have out and do you self publish?
T: Aww Don’t be sad! It will happen!
All my books are self-published. I have a total of 11 published. Two of them are not on the shelf yet, and I have three more slated for this year. I really enjoy self-pubbing. It gives me a bit more freedom, and yes its hard work, but I have a great team…
EM: Yes...it does take a village to publish a book doesn't it? Are all your books science fiction erotica?
T: It really does! There is a lot of stuff that goes on, and frankly sometimes I want to take a step back and just say, “Yo, for real! Did that just happen.” LOL But then I remember why I chose that route in the first place and am once again happy.
No, all my books are not Sci-Fi Erotica, this is actually my first attempt at Sci-Fi. It does have a bit of a PNR twist to it though as we’re dealing with vampires. I have two other series, Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories Season 2 actually features another attempt at Sci-Fi, but with a female assassin feel to it. Then there is my more popular, PNR Erotic Romance The Shadow Unit Series which features, all types of Paranormal beings.
EM: I do think Genesis Project would be enjoyed by both scifi and paranormal fans. You have weaved the two together in a very unique way. There is a lot of genetics involved in this story. What kind of research did you have to do for the book?
T: For The Genesis Project, I am not even going to lie, I did minimum research. Not that its necessarily a good thing, but sometimes the nerd in my sneaks her way back into my life, and throws me off on a tangent. So to eliminate that behavior I looked up key things that I know a little about and then of course I watched the movie Splice. Btw, great movie starting Adrien Brody!
Then I just made stuff up along the way. I’m sure if a true geneticist read my story, they would straight up tell me my ideas, although possibly well thought out are just whacked! LOL But that’s what great about writing Fiction, it’s my story and if I say Gen was created in a lab via the help of a computer and its mechanical arm, well then, that’s what happened.
I am the first to admit I go against the grain, I don’t follow all the rules. I like to think of my canvas as The Matrix. LOL “Is that really a word you’re writing? Or are you simply seeing it for what you think it should be.” There it goes, the nerd in me! LOL
EM: Girl...we should hang OUT! We could get our nerd on up in here! You would be surprised at
the things I don't have to research either just because Discovery channel is like porn to me. Do you know any good nerdy pick up lines? I've got one:
Do you have 11 protons? 'Cause you're Sodium fine!
T: OMFG! I love it! Okay… Okay… I got one! Are you sitting on the F5 Key? Cause your ass is refreshing!
My husband and I quote movie lines, literally all day! I could be walking by and all of a sudden he will bust out with something like: I’m kind of a big deal… Then I reply with… (totally out of order, but still hilarious as hell) I wanna be on you!
We totally need to hook up! And OMG! ANCIENT ALIENS! I could go on and on! Myth Busters! Another fav channel is NATGEO! We watch Dual Survivor re-runs.. So be safe in the knowledge that if the world should end and technology is on the fritz!… (Hoping it doesn't, as I’m still seeking a book buddy for the end of the world) I can start a fire with brillo pad wire, cotton, and Vaseline!
EM: I can start fire with water. Okay, not just water, but a water bottle and a piece of paper...and it can't be cloudy outside. ANYWAY! I think I'm getting this interview away from your book, but I do believe readers will know a little more about you..maybe TMI! So, back to Genesis...uhem. It's evident that more books are to follow. How many installments do you expect to be in the Genesis series?
Right now I have it at three books total in the series with the next book, Origins coming out in Jan of 2015. Third book is not titled yet, but maybe it could be called, The Light of Zothar and Gen lol! Joking! :) but in all seriousness just the three for now I'm throwing some titles around for the third book in my head now.
EM: Well, you definitely left this book open and me itching to know what happens next! Do you have any final words to leave readers with?
T: Final words.... Hmm... I'd like to say a big Thank You to Emily for having me on the blog today! I hope all who've read The Genesis Project will stick around for more, and those who are new readers will give her chance.
And if you really liked Gen stop by and leave us a review! We'd love to hear your thoughts!
EM: No, thank you Tigris for taking the time to hang out with me for a bit! It was so much fun!
Tigris Eden creates a new and intriguing world in Genesis project. She's combined science fiction and paranormal seamlessly to bring readers an erotic tale. In this story, we follow Genesis, an adult, who is just learning how to be a Par (vampire) because her "father" has kept her secreted away. Many steamy scenes follow as she falls for the resident hot guy.
I wish there had been more to the plot of this first story as it really just seemed to be the introduction to any action. That being said, I will be looking for the next book as Ms. Eden has left us on a whopper of a cliffhanger.
This story is definitely for adults only and will provide a quick easy read for lovers of scifi or paranomral erotica.
