Blog Tour: Across Worlds: Collision by S.A. Snow

Author Bio:

After chasing around puppies and corralling kittens, S.A. Snow flips open her BSG replicated console and enters her mysterious world of imagination. Seeking to escape the rigors of her day jobs, she enters flight mode and powers her engines full-speed ahead.

A prolific writer of non-traditional erotica, S.A. Snow grew up on a small alpaca farm high in the Andes Mountains. A lover of yoga and meditation, she spends her free time constructing alien space stations, organizing werewolf governments, and cataloging all episodes of Star Trek in order of technical soundness. A firm believer that one need not choose between Gene Roddenberry and George Lucas, she also has closely examines all Star Wars movies in order to determine which episode is more factually based.

S.A. Snow writes truth and only truth, factoring in all evidences she can find. She writes only about parallel universes she has personally visited, and believes if something about her books isn’t shocking, she’s not effectively telling the story.

Jane expected six months undercover to be hard; she expected it to be lonely and bleak. She didn’t expect to find love.

Jane Butler, a CIA operative, is assigned the task of infiltrating the Xanthians and determining if they’re a threat to humanity. Going undercover as a Xanthian mate, she boards the transport ship and meets Usnavi—her new mate. After spending six days traveling through space, Jane is ecstatic to explore the Xanthian station and soon sets out to complete her mission. The only problem? Usnavi—and the feelings she is quickly developing.

Fumbling their way through varying sexual expectations, cooking catastrophes, and cultural differences, they soon discover life together is never boring. As Jane and Usnavi careen into a relationship neither of them expected, Jane uncovers dark secrets about the Xanthians and realizes she may no longer be safe. When it becomes clear she’s on her own, Jane is forced to trust and rely on Usnavi. Simultaneously struggling with her mission, her feelings for Usnavi, and homesickness, Jane faces questions she never imagined she would have to answer.

1. What is your writing process?

My writing process is fairly simple. I have a friend, and I bounce ideas off this friend. Then I usually have 1-2 scenes in my head or know somewhat where the story is going. I definitely have at least one or two characters in mind. Then I sit down at my computer, turn on Google docs and I type away until I can’t type anymore. Then I go back to my friend and tell them what I did.

2. What are you working on now?

I’m working on a dystopian werewolf story. It’s flipped from what you would normally think, and werewolves are in the majority, humans the minority, and if the humans are discovered they are quickly put to death.

3. What unique challenges do you face when writing sci-fi?

Making it sci-fi enough. There are a lot of hard core sci-fi readers out there, and this book is not that. I wanted the sci-fi elements, but I didn’t want it to overwhelm the romantic story going on. I do believe I accomplished that.

4. How do your life experiences impact your stories?

Mostly it has to do with character personalities. I’m part of the LGBT et al community, and so when the idea for Usnavi came up, I knew there would be discussions about zher gender and sex. It’s not often you meet someone who claims neither male nor female. Likewise, Jane is pretty badass and confident in some ways, and that is certainly affected by seeing damsels in distress who can’t do anything and wanting to fight back against that.

5. Which episode of Star Trek is most technically sound and which Star Wars movie is most factually based?

Haha! This one I’m not sharing with you. It took a lot of research to figure it out, and frankly, you all should enjoy the pleasure yourself. I will tell you that I’ll have to reevaluate it soon with all these new movies coming out. It’s been close to a decade since I’ve done the analysis.


“I am not a man.”

Jane took a long sip from the drink, using it to bide her time before she asked the question on the tip of her tongue.

“What are you, then?”

“I am Xanthian.”

Usnavi stood up straight, zher back tense as zhe moved over to stand in front of Jane.

“Is it really that hard to understand that I am neither man nor woman, male nor female, that I am simply Xanthian and Usnavi?”

Grinding her back teeth together, Jane nodded minutely.

“Sometimes it is. Sometimes it’s not,” she responded.
