Fresh off the Starship by Ann Crawford - Book Tour + Giveaway

Fresh off the Starship
by Ann Crawford


GENRE:   Women's fiction / humor



Love to laugh? You'll enjoy this feel-good tale.

A starbeing skyrockets to Earth from the other side of forever with a specific assignment: 
to help steer humanity away from the collision course it's on. But we all know how travel can get 
drastically diverted--instead of landing in Washington, D.C., where she could assist on a grand 
geopolitical scale, she ends up in...Kansas!

Wrong place, right time? Join our shero on this whimsical journey as she pursues her purpose as well 
as discovers the beauty of life and love on Earth.



She catches a glimpse of herself in the full-length mirror and lets out a gasp of surprise. 
She looks down at her body and then back at her reflection. She turns to the right, then to the left, 
then even more to the right, and then even more to the left.

She gazes at her long limbs and then at the gentle curves and soft swells with interesting shapes, 
patterns and varying colors. She’d seen the human form during her training, but it’s quite different 
seeing it in person, literally, as a person.

This vehicle is amazingly beautiful!

The morning starlight casts her in a golden glow. She turns and looks over her shoulder to see the 
back of her in the mirror. Her long, light-brown-colored hair falls down her back like a veil.

It’s one thing to study human beings. It’s a whole other thing altogether to be encased in this gorgeous 
piece of Creation.

She wanders down the hall to the bathroom. She examines the tub and the faucets, 
remembering coming across such objects in her Googling and Youtubing. She starts filling the tub, 
adjusting the temperature to something that feels good, and climbs in.

Holy Heaven!

Not only is the water pressing against her, head to toe, a sensory pleasure in itself, she also runs her 
hands over this luscious body thing of hers. Nothing in her eternal life had ever felt like this.

Topic: Would you (the author) ever want to travel through space and/or time? Why or why not?

Oh, absolutely I would! I’d LOVE to travel through space and
time. I’ve been to 70 countries (and counting), including 2 complete circumnavigations of the globe, as well as all 50 states, so I definitely have the travel bug going. And that bug would certainly include traveling the universe and other dimensions and whatever else is out there if it was possible.

I’d also love to go forward and backward in time…well, maybe not too much backward because I’m a real fan of indoor plumbing. My travels in third-world countries have given me a real appreciation for that, LOL. We in the Western world are often so spoiled, and we don’t even know it. That’s not to chide—just to lift up some everyday things we don’t often consider as luxuries.

I’d love to meet my future self and see how it all worked out. I’d love to meet the future selves of my husband and stepchildren and see how it all worked out for them, too. I’d love to see how we all figured out how to create a better world and clean up the planet. I know we will.


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I'm a fun-loving, world-traveling, high-flying, deep-diving, and living-to-the-max author of eight books. 
When I'm not flying planes, scuba diving, climbing every mountain (on the back of my husband’s 
motorcycle) or riding the world’s fastest roller coasters, you can find me in my writing nest with a view 
of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains out the window. I've lived all over--from both oceans white with foam, 
to the prairie, and now to the mountain. Yes, a little backwards, but what the hey.

My bestselling and award-winning novels go as high and deep as I do—they’re profound yet funny; 
playful although poignant; heart-opening and heart-lifting; thought-provoking and inspiring; 
and edgy while universal. I'm also a screenwriter and award-winning filmmaker and humanitarian.

  1. How many hours a day do you spend writing?

    1. Hi Bernie. Oh, it varies on how in the flow I am. It can be as short as an hour for a low-flow day or as many as 8 for a really in-the-flow day. A usual day is about 3 hours.

  2. Happy Friday, thanks for the great post and awesome giveaway :)

  3. The book sounds great and I appreciate getting to hear about it. Thank you for sharing!

  4. How much did the book change from when you first started writing to the conclusion?

    1. Hi. It didn’t change much because I basically wrote most of it in about 2 there wasn’t much time for it to change!

  5. At which age did you publish your first book?

    1. Hi again. I had my first agent (a well-known one) for my very first book when I was 26. I had my first published book (the third one I wrote) when I was 40. I got sidetracked by filmmaking in the meantime in there, but that was a wonderful experience, too. That book, on Visioning, was written in 2 weeks and I had some 12-hour writing days, but I don’t get on those marathon writing runs any more. That was a singular experience!

  6. Hi! Thank you so much for the great comments, everyone, and thank you for hosting, Jasmine. I was out of town in a retreat in Friday, so thank you for your patience with me. :)


Please try not to spam posts with the same comments over and over again. Authors like seeing thoughtful comments about their books, not the same old, "I like the cover" or "sounds good" comments. While that is nice, putting some real thought and effort in is appreciated. Thank you.
