On Saturday night, I went to a friend’s house for a cookout during their town’s Summer festival. I had admittedly been in a small funk writing-wise and was forcing it a bit on a current work in progress. Something happened that night, and I’m not totally sure what, but it gave me the inspiration for this story. I started in on it Sunday afternoon and finished it yesterday night. I sent it off for edits and finished those up early afternoon today. And there you have…Contact Window.
This is my first story which features aliens, but it won’t be my last. In fact, I really began to fall in love with these characters–so much that I would say there is a good chance this story opens up new possibilities of stories for me. You’ll find strong influences by Stargate and Star Trek in here (in fact, one of my editors said she would love an encounter between my protagonist and Jean-Luc Picard!). It’s just a short story, but I really put a lot into it. It broke me out of a funk and I think you’ll enjoy it.
