Blog Tour: Fantasy for a Gentleman (A Planet Called Wish #2) by Caitlin Ricci

Caitlin Ricci is here with us today to talk about her newest, Fantasy for a Gentleman, and gives some insight into her writing process!

Hey out there and thanks for having me. My newest sci fi novel, Fantasy for a Gentleman, comes out on February 19th from Dreamspinner Press and I'd love to tell you a bit about the music behind this novel.

When I write I often see the scenes of the book like they're individual parts of a movie and sometimes there's music that goes perfectly with those scenes. A lot of the time that music happens to be Five Finger Death Punch or One Republic. But in an alien world with spaceships, bounty hunters, peacekeepers, and companions-- all on a pleasure planet called Wish, my usual music choices just weren't working and I was finding myself getting stuck.

I listen to music when I write and it inspires and motivates me. The TV can sometimes be on, but more often than not I find it distracting to watch TV while I'm trying to write. When my usual music choices aren't working for a book I have Pandora shuffle all of my stations together and I try to write until something really starts to work.

For Fantasy for a Gentleman, that music happened to be Elements by Lindsey Stirling. You can see the video here and I definitely recommend the video. What she can do with a violin while she's dancing is amazing.

I kept Lindsey's music on while I wrote those first few scenes and plotted out the rest and by the end of the novel I had written this one almost entirely to her music. Elements, Shadows, Crystallize, Take Flight, Moon Trance, and Stars Align all had a big part in bringing this book together and keeping me going. I especially love the video for Crystallize since it was shot in an ice castle here in Colorado.

If you get a chance, please check out her music, and if you like your sci fi with a companion who loves his job and would never give it up, along with a bounty hunter who is trying to kill him at every turn, I hope you'll give Fantasy for a Gentleman a try. This is the second book in my A Planet Called Wish series, but this novel is about a new couple so you don't have to read the first book, To the Highest Bidder, to understand what's happening in this one but it will help and if you read the second then go back to the first you'll already know the big secret in the first.
Thank you for spending some time with me today.

About the Author:
Caitlin was fortunate growing up to be surrounded by family and teachers that encouraged her love of reading. She has always been a voracious reader and that love of the written word easily morphed into a passion for writing. She comes from a military family and the men and women of the armed forces are close to her heart. She also enjoys gardening and horseback riding in the Colorado Rockies where she calls home with her wonderful husband and their two dogs. Her belief that there is no one true path to happily ever after runs deeply through all of her stories.


For two decades Corbin Leroux has worked on the planet Wish as a high-priced companion. He loves his life where physical pleasure is encouraged and has no intention of quitting it. Corbin sees his clients almost as part of his family. Not even when bounty hunter Emmanuel Leoniste comes to kill him will Corbin roll over and give up his lifestyle.

Despite being a hired killer, Emmanuel lives by a strict moral code. Killing whores is acceptable, and easy. Or it was until he met up with Corbin. Worn down by the pesky Corbin’s resolve, Emmanuel accepts Corbin's bribe and calls off the hit. But the truce might not last. Emmanuel’s mounting desires for Corbin cause problems. He refuses to allow anyone close enough to become intimate with him, especially someone like Corbin. Yet with each smile and soft kiss, Emmanuel’s emotional shield is dismantled piece by piece.
