Universal Alien Blog Tour - Jeff and Kitty's Top 10 Vacation Spots

I'm happy to announce that today I'm hosting a tour stop for Gini Koch's Universal Alien Blog tour!

Universal Alien, book 10 in the Katherine "Kitty" Katt series will release next month. All books in this series have been awesome, but fans of the series all have their favorite book, character, or event. I for example still think the first book in this series is the best, if only because it made me fall head over heels for this series. When I picked up Touched By An Alien I didn't expect to love it as much as I do, and I certainly hadn't expected so many awesome books would follow after that first one.

Talking about favorites:
To celebrate the upcoming release this blog tour is all about top 10's!
Today will feature Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini’s Top Ten Fave Vacation Spots, but be sure to keep an eye on Gini's blog for more tour stops and top 10's.

And don't forget to enter the awesome giveaway!

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini’s Top Ten Fave Vacation Spots

10. Alternate realities. Okay, that’s in Kitty’s Top 10. Jeff’s not so excited about this one.

9. Anywhere that gets us away from Washington, D.C. Because most places are cool, fun, and have cool people in them.

8. Disneyland. If we have to explain that, we don’t necessarily want to hang with you.

7. Europe. Yes, all of it.

6. Chicago, great food and great people.

5. Australia. Yes, all of it.

4. New York City, ‘cause it’s cool and fun and never sleeps.

3. Paris, France, despite all the stuff that’s happened there.

2. Las Vegas, because that’s where our daughter was conceived, and it’s also cool and fun and never sleeps.

1. Cabo. If you have to ask why, you haven’t read the books about us, have you?

About Universal Alien:
Being the wife of the Vice President isn’t easy. Especially when your talents lie in kicking butt and rocking out…
Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini find out just how easy it is for the wife of the Vice President of the United States to unintentionally insult an ally. Now they have to smooth things over with the Australian Prime Minister, pronto, or risk creating an international incident the worldwide anti-alien coalitions will be able to use to force Jeff to resign and the A-Cs to leave the planet.
But before Kitty can make things worse, a cosmic congruence and a little help from some powerful beings shoves her into another world -- one where she’s been married to Charles Reynolds for years and aliens don’t exist. She’s also landed in the middle of a huge conspiracy and is marked for death…but at least that’s business as usual.
Kitty’s not the only one confused, because the Kitty from that world has taken her place in this one. Now Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have to make sure that no one spots that there’s been a switch, while keeping World War III from happening. And they have to do so while keeping this new Kitty in line, because she has views about what to do and how to it, and time is running out.
Can both Kittys save their respective days before it’s too late to go home to the universes they belong to? Or will one Kitty decide to keep the other’s life…forever?

Gini I love your books and I'm obtaining them one contest win at a time. I'd love to add another one to my collection so I hope I get lucky. Of course if I hit the lottery I'll just contact YOUR favorite book seller and order the books I'm missing in autographed form.

Steph F. said...

It could be interesting visiting an alternate reality and seeing how my life would be changed.
Love this series, definitely one of my favorites. Gini is a phenomenal author.

Katie Dalton said...

Cabo! Been there, love it! Sheep giving some love to our Pig family. Much love to the amazing Gini too! xoxoxo

JoAnna said...

Can't wait to read the new book!

I too adore Las Vegas and love to read Kitty's view of it. However, I would never have guessed any of the AC's would have been Disneyland fans (except maybe Raj). Kitty and Reader, of course, even Chuckie. But I'd pay good money to read about Jeff, Christoper or Richard on the teacups or face to face with some of the characters. Maybe that should be a Penumbra story, Gini.

Michael Creager said...

Alternate reality would be cool but next to Kitty and Jeff in Cabo would be great picture time. LOL Love Yahoo Gini!!!

Sarah G said...

I love this series :o) So many of the places on Jeff & Kitty's list are on my list of destinations I'd love to visit one day. I'm not quite sure of the idea of an alternate reality though - I guess it would depend on whether it was better than this one or not LOL

Kristia said...

I haven't started this series yet even though everyone keeps telling me how awesome it is. Thank you for the international giveaway :)

miki said...

Not sure i would enjoy alternate realities but i agree to avoid washington ^^ for me it does not ring with vacation at all^^

erin said...

I love this series!!! I'm about 2 books behind but I think I'm hoarding them so that I don't run out of Kat and Jeff awesomeness :) Thanks for sharing!

Mel said...

I would want to go somewhere with a little more sleep! Or at least if I spent more time in bed I wouldn't feel I was missing out! ;-)

Anne said...

I'd go any of these places with Kitty and Martini. It would be the experience of a lifetime....hopefully I'd come back alive.

gemiinii said...

Would love to visit an alternative reality!

heatwave16 said...

I definitely want to go to Vegas!!! I've never been, and its at the top of my 'to visit' list.

between dreams and reality said...

Oh so much fun! I love the answers. This series is so great I need to read more of it!

JC Jones said...

All are fun places to visit. Wonder if they would take me along.

Shavana Merrick said...

I want to go to Disneyland. It would be so cool.

Lori Parker BookwormPOV said...

The Top Ten Tour is oh-so appropriate for the release of a tenth book in a series, and Gini Koch's Alien books are the most humorous and random SF ever!

Melissa Katano said...

I LOVE all the vacation spots! Any time Jeff and Kitty need a vacation guide to Europe, let me know! (And I'd be more than happy to accompany them to Australia!)
