Howdy! For all you writers out there, the Sci Fi Romance Quarterly is accepting short stories for Issue #7. Deadline in June 1, 2015. It’s a paying market for SF romance of all shades and subgenres. Fiction editor is Diane Dooley.
Also, check out some of my posts at Smart Girls Love Sci Fi. Great interviews with Cathy Pegau and Cara Bristol. And an SF Obscure post on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. I hope to have more coming soon.
And I have a new board up on PINTEREST with inspirations for my current WIP, The Broken King. Check it out. I also want to thank those members of the RWA forums for helping me to brainstorm a title.

Spring comes one day and goes away the next.
I’m currently hard at work on a novel. Revision takes time. Anyhow, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing some wonderful writers Roslyn Hardy Holcomb and Lisa G. Riley and doing a cover reveal for Anna Hackett. And I wrote another SF Obscure article on Tru Calling and Threshold.
If you’re interest please follow me on Pinterest. I love to Pin, and to follow pins. Occasionally, I’m on Twitter at @mrsbookmark. And I wouldn’t mind a few likes on Facebook.
I love SF, I love paranormal, I love fantasy. Basically, when a story takes place in an alternate world I like to escape into it. I join lots of groups for the like minded and thanks to the wonderful Sci-Fi Romance group on Facebook I was tagged for a post by PJ Dean author of Felig Chronicles (and the very, very good historical romance Kindred: An American Love Story which I love for all kinds of reasons).
So I want to point out the works of Rae Lori, whose Cimmerian Stories set in a future dystopia. Wonderful heroine whose African American and First Nations and an Asian American hero. A neat combination of futuristic romance and urban fantasy. Plus it’s very low heat level for those who want to share with all audiences.
S.J. Pajonas has a neat New Adult series, the Nogiku series, set in a dystopia-this time based on Japanese culture. It very detailed with and intriguing mix that is not to be missed. Check them all out.
And Misa Buckley’s book Tin Cat, which is a lovely read that I liked from first time I read it and still do. A heroine living with disabilities that has a real life and not a stereotype. It’s just so enjoyable.
I think this tagging event started with Pauline Baird Jones (read her books and her blog because it’s funny) and continued with Veronica Scott and her wonderful. award winning SFR series.
So, I did a new SF Obscure on the Canadian series, THE STARLOST. It features space Amish, men in orange leotards doing dance gymnastics to other men playing music on water glasses. It also has an episode about giant bees. This was the early 70’s so long mustaches and hairy chests abound.
I’m happy for another day…I hope you are! Not much happening, but I will continue with SF Obscure at the Smart Girls Blog this year as well as contributing to the Sci Fi Romance Quarterly. If you haven’t gotten your copy, do. It’s FREE.
In writing updates, the next M/M fantasy novella, is back from the beta reader with comments galore. The latest is being outlined right now. Or at least, it should be as soon as I stop doing this and go back to typing.
As the years ends…it’s been fun for me. December is busy and I’ll be enjoying my holidays with family and friends.
Less Than Three Press is having a sale until December 31st! Stop by and check out many wonderful writers.
And I’ll be doing a guest post in January at Romancing the Genres.
Join me today on the Star Crossed Romance blog as I talk about spinning wheels in folklore and a bit about my debut novella.
A very awesome blog run by Lynda K. Scott and Skylar Masey featuring posts by very fine writers. So excited to be able to contribute.
This week I was lucky to interview Eve Vaughn, whose steamy stories I have been reading for a while.
And two writers with new stuff out: PJ Dean has one that looks great! Kindred: An American Love Story. An African American woman and a Oneida man before the American Revolution. Cool. I don’t read history romance often, but will try this one.
As well as KS Augustin, who has a new SF Romance out in January. Yay! Galaxy Express has all the details.
I also blog about androids at Smart Girls.
OK. I know I should never read my reviews…and I have stopped. But, Boys in Our Books, was kind enough to take their time to read and write a nice review.
Plus a decent rating and some good criticism for me to improve with my next book.
It’s here! Just in time for nanowrimo. My very first published work. Available at Less Than Three or Amazon. Even has a nifty excerpt. A bit on the steamier side, fair warning.
OK. That’s all of my publicity spam.
