Spotlight On… Extraterrestrial Encounters: A Collection of Sci-Fi Stories!

A New Release from Kelli A. Wilkins
 Hi everyone!
I’m pleased to announce the release of my science fiction anthology, Extraterrestrial Encounters: A Collection of Sci-Fi Stories. Although I’m mainly known for writing sensual romances and spooky horror fiction, every so often I like to surprise myself – and readers. 
I’ve always been attracted to the unusual, peculiar, and “weird” that exists in the sci-fi and horror genres. I grew up watching Tales from the Dark Side, Amazing Stories, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, The Outer Limits, and of course, The Twilight Zone. So I guess it’s no surprise that when I started writing, I wrote what I loved reading: sci-fi and horror.  
Authors are always asked, “Where do you get your ideas?” so when I wrote Extraterrestrial Encounters, I decided to share a peek at my writing process. I’ve included a brief note at the end of each story in the collection, explaining what inspired me to write it, where I got the idea or general comments about the plot or characters. 
I hope you enjoy these stories. Some are humorous, some will make you think, and others might scare you a bit, but they will all take you on a journey into the realm of the unknown for a little while. 
Here is the book summary and buy links. 
Extraterrestrial Encounters: A Collection of Sci-Fi Stories
Are you ready to step into the unknown?
In these 18 sci-fi stories, you’ll encounter aliens of all shapes and sizes, curious (and sometimes unlucky) space explorers, and ordinary Earthlings having otherworldly experiences.
Some of the out-of-this-world tales in this short fiction anthology include:
“The Hoax” - A reporter learns that a creature from another planet is a dangerous thing to fool with
“It Grows on You” - A strange kind of mold has invaded an office, and it’s the perfect tool for revenge
 “What Lurks Below” - Everyone knows there’s no life on Mars, but nobody thought about what might be lurking under the surface…
“The Con” - An alien becomes an unlikely ally to a down-on-his-luck petty crook
“Space Cowboy” - When a second-rate rodeo star is abducted by aliens, he makes the most of the situation
 “They Just Keep Eating” - A Nebraska farmer encounters a menace from space… and it’s hungry

This collection of speculative fiction will stimulate your imagination, unnerve you just a little, and make you wonder… “What if we’re not alone?”
