Proximity Series Book #2
By M.A. George
Publication Date: January 9, 2013
No matter the planet, Palta Capal is an alien.
She’s lived a lifetime where she never belonged…but relocating to the “home world” she’s never seen has her feeling more like an outsider than ever.
Teetering between the thrill of newfound love and the despair of family loss—not to mention the looming threat of global war—Palta doesn’t need any more excitement in her life.
But what she needs and what she gets are two entirely different things.
Proximity Book # 3
Publication Date-July 16th, 2013
Palta learned long ago not to expect a “normal” life. She’d settle for one free of close encounters with supernaturally-gifted homicidal maniacs.
Apparently that’s too much to ask.
Join your favorite Onontian royal family, as they settle into life at the palace...only don’t get too comfortable, because things are about to take a hair-raising turn.
Vitality is the gripping third installment in the Proximity series.
About the Author-
M. A. George is part proud mother of two adorable children, part super top secret agent…Oops, probably just lost that job.
Writing is what keeps her up into the wee hours of the night. Fortunately, she has a lot of energy (Read: caffeine is her friend). She has a bit of an obsession with music (It does a fantastic job of tuning out rambunctious children while she attempts to focus).
She sincerely hopes people out there enjoy reading her work as much as she enjoys writing it. And if anyone hears of work for a super top secret agent, she’s now available (Discretion guaranteed…).

Please tell us about yourself using 3 verbs, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
3 verbs: Reading, creating, laughing.
1 quirk: You seriously expect me to narrow it down to just one? I think I’m 20% water and 80% quirks. Let’s see...I always wash my hands after touching shoes. (C’mon, shoes are just gross. And I never said I wasn’t neurotic.)
A pop culture addiction: Anything to do with music, past and present. Trying to list all the bands would probably crash my hard drive.
Top 3 Pet Peeves
1 - People talking on cell phones while driving
2 - People blocking the entire grocery store aisle, oblivious to other shoppers
3- Telemarketer calls
(I appear to have something against phones and people. See above neurosis reference.)
What are your thoughts on book covers- in your opinion do they make or break a book?
I don’t think a cover can turn a ho-hum story into a masterpiece--or ruin an otherwise brilliant book--but that being said...I LOVE pretty-pretty book covers. I love unique book covers, colorful book covers, monochromatic book covers, book covers with great artwork or awesome lettering. I’d wallpaper my house in book covers if I could. Wait a second...Who’s stopping me from wallpapering my house in book covers?
How do you come up with character names?
Sometimes I have a name in mind before I even write that character’s first scene. Sometimes I put in one name and change it when I find something else that fits better. I’ve searched baby name databases and tried to find names that carry a certain meaning to fit the character. Several of the names in my Proximity series needed to sound unique enough to fit an alien, so I borrowed and tweaked certain words from the Sabela language, spoken by the Huaorani people of the Amazon Rainforest.
This or That-
*Paranormal or Dystopian?
Either one. Even better if it’s both simultaneously.
*Morning or Night?
Night, night, night. Mornings should be illegal.
*Vanilla or Chocolate?
Peanut butter. (If you insist on giving me vanilla or chocolate, either will go fantastically with my peanut butter.)
*Summer or Winter?
Summer! If mornings are illegal, cold weather is a felony.
