Cover Reveal: No Angel by Pippa Jay


How far would you fall for love?


Centuries ago, guardian angel Lucien committed a terrible sin. He gave into his own desires and revealed himself to the mortal woman he’d been charged to protect. By kissing her, he condemned himself. Torn of his wings and his angelic powers, thrown down into the City Below, Lucien now serves Satan as an incubus who claims souls for his master from the City Above, and who feeds on the energy stolen from his mortal lovers. Dark, sexy and charming, he’s been top of his league for decades uncounted.


Until His Infernal Highness decides to send Lucien looking for a lost angel. Lucien has no idea what he did to deserve such a punishment, and the touch of an angel could destroy him. Yet the challenge and the potential kudos of seducing one of his former heavenly kin leads him on.


But when he finds the angel, he learns he still has more to lose than his already forsaken soul.

After spending twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay is now a stay-at-home mum who writes scifi and the supernatural. Somewhere along the way a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moment playing guitar very badly, punishing herself with freestyle street dance, and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in the historical town of Colchester in the UK with her husband of 21 years and three little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Pippa Jay is a dedicated member of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade, blogging at Spacefreighters Lounge, Adventures in Scifi, and Romancing the Genres. Her works include a YA science fiction novel—Gethyon—published through BURST (Champagne Books), a scifi romance novella—Tethered—published by Breathless Press, a YA paranormal romance—Restless In Peaceville—published by Lycaon Press, four self-published short stories (Terms & Conditions Apply, The Bones of the Sea, Reboot and Hallow’s Eve), and she’s one of eight authors included in a science fiction romance anthology—Tales from the SFR Brigade. She’s also a double SFR Galaxy Award winner, been a finalist in the Heart of Denver RWA Aspen Gold Contest (3rd place), and the GCC RWA Silken Sands Star Awards (2nd place).

Outside the Box

Queer Romance Month is a celebration of LGBT representation in the publishing industry.

Today, I’m on the blog, talking about the freedom of reading and writing queer sci fi.

I have requested and received my rights for IRONHAVEN back. It is no longer available from Decadent Publishing or third party sites.

I’ve very mixed feelings about this. Though I have been planning to rewrite and create a three book serial, IRONHAVEN was my first published work. I wrote it off the back of realising that I needed to get my work out in the world, in less than a month after seeing a submission call. It was the first piece I finished. The start of my career.

And now, however temporarily, it is gone.

It’s gonna get meta

Meta is a prefix used in English to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter. Modern use is as a term used to characterise something that is characteristically self-referential. I’m writing a geek romance about a woman who strikes up a relationship with the sci fi actor she fancies. It’s kind of like Galaxy Quest, but with less inside out aliens.

But I am writing a book that has a fan of a show that doesn’t exist. Meaning that I have to create a fan universe from scratch. The show title, plots, episodes, characters, actors. The whole shebang. Meta meta.

Say your right words

When writing, it’s important to choose the right words. To build a picture while not descending into flowery prose. To communicate an idea fully. I know this. So why didn’t I do it when tweeting last night.

Part of it was tiredness. It was past eleven; past my bedtime. Part of it was excitement; he’d mentioned his guest spot on NCIS New Orleans (airing tonight at 9pm on CBS) and I got giddy. I also got to remembering how his guest spot on the original NCIS was a blink-and-miss-it one. What I forgot, in my need to know if it was more than that, was that Cliff Simon is mentally 12 years old.


What he doesn’t realise is my geek romance is set modern day and so has my heroine using social media. He is literally feeding the story at the moment, which might account for today’s word count.
