In my second Starlander book my Heroine Jellica Rose takes off on a perilous space journey to find a cure for her Illegal Lifeform Child's shortened life span and growth issues.
My original hero was hunky, like this, only an alien. (If you squint you can maybe see it.)
But then I had a dream with a really interesting setting--and a new hero, definitely human;
It means replotting--but maybe the alien hero and some plot elements will work in Book 3.
I need to get with Jellica Rose.
