Catnapped by the Catman: An Alien Abduction Standalone Romance (Interstellar Protections Agency Book 1) by [Jade Waltz]


Review by Twinsie Kelly

Ok, first I have a question to ask. Do you prefer dogs or cats? LOL!

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from today, it’s that if I wanted loyalty, I should’ve gotten a dog. No matter how much I loved Loki, he was still a cat who could only serve himself. One thing was for sure: I wasn’t going to trust a feline ever again.”

Well, let me tell you something. When you are catnapped by a catman, trust is very difficult. However, when aliens and space travel are involved as well as a damned good explanation from the catman, it is extremely difficult not to fall head over paws for him!

Sarah is a single woman who has had poor luck with love in the past but absolutely adores her cat, Loki. One thing she was not prepared for was for her cat to make a deal with an alien cat to kidnap her. There were so many “miscommunications” that it was hard not to chuckle at their entire exchange. Once Sarah realizes she has been kidnapped and aliens do exist, she starts to try and figure out what her next steps are. Sarah and the catman cannot communicate so they are both fumbling around, which is super cute and adorable. The way that the catman and Loki banter back and forth is hilarious, but both ultimately have Sarah’s best interest at heart. Ultimately the point of kidnapping/catnapping Sarah is to save some of her friends and others that are traveling into an area where they could be attacked. I did expect there to be some more action but the action actually takes place away from their ship. Other than that, this story had a lot of funny moments, tons of banter, and a super sweet romance with a few really hot moments (bow chicka bow wow). I cannot wait to see what the next book unravels!

Jade Waltz

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

I am Jade Waltz. I am mother of two sons and a handful of cats. When I am not weaving stories or writing marching band drill, I am playing video games with my friends or knitting. I’m addicted to green tea and mints.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The ones after it. My Project: Adapt series is going to be 9 books long, and each book needs to build on everything that has already happened while keeping the reader’s attention. My series bible for it is over 100k words…. the size of one of the books in my series alone.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I don’t like doing the same thing twice — even between series. I always try to think of ways to improve the outlines and make it unique.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

If you are stuck in a writer’s block, try outlining or writing a different story. Whenever I do, it gets the creative flow for my original WIP going.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

Three to five hours. Sometimes up to ten on the weekends.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Yes – Kaede from Project: Adapt. He is a broken soldier who wants to do good, but constantly has to battle his genetics and need to be with the woman he was assigned to protect.

If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?

Winnie Harlow playing Selena in my Project: Adapt series.

I’ve followed Winnie Harlow when she was on TV, watched a few documentaries about her journey and read articles about her life. Throughout it all, she explained how difficult it was to live with vitiligo. I wanted to create a main character w/vitiligo in my space fantasy and display the beauty of it. Winnie inspired me to create Selena – and Selena is surrounded by aliens who don’t know what’s determined as normal or not for humans, and even if they did, they wouldn’t care because they have a wide variety of patterns, coloring, and other attributes. Winnie would make an amazing Selena.

What is your definition of success?

I believe there’s different levels of success, with the lowest being finishing a story, followed by others enjoying it, and then making enough to pay the costs to make said story. Anything beyond that is just a bonus. Would I love to make more than that? Absolutely! But I am not going to get myself down if I don’t.
