*Gizmos Reviews* Universal Alien Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Welcome to the Universal Alien Blog Tour!

I am happy to be hosting a stop on this tour since I absolutely adore this series! Universal Alien takes Kitty Katt-Martini to a whole new level of twists and mysteries and dare I say discovery? If you know anything about Kitty and this series, you know that she never goes anywhere without someone trying to rain down on her parade!

I asked Gini to put together a list of her Top Ten “Kitty-isms”

Christopher White chose this list because he coined the term “Kitty-ism” and he’s been feeling ignored recently.

10. Blah, blah, blah.
9. You think someone slipped Jeff an electronic mickey?
8. I want Chuckie looking for what’s looking at us. I’m not trying to see what the Irish and Romanians wear under their kilts.
7. Killer Whales (for limousines with assassins in them).
6. I think the confusion is they don’t know if it’s Miller Time or not, and they also don’t know if they can or should phone home.
5. And the entities are looking for both the physical and mental presences of those they saw before. They’re drawing their pictures for the astronauts in the hopes said astronauts will show them where their penguins went.
4. I’m Wolverine with Boobs!
3. Operation anything and everything and, because it’s Kitty, if it happens it’ll get a name. Could have filled the entire list with these, but I’ll just choose what she chose to call the events from when we first met her: Operation Fugly.
2. In our world, when we realize that we have a law that is no longer relevant – like not being able to give a moose an alcoholic beverage if you’re in Alaska – we either ignore it, change it, or repeal it.
1. My crazy’s working a lot better than your sanity. (Sadly, this is, was, and remains true.)

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?
