Is every one excited about Fall?! It’s my very favorite time of year. It’s also a very busy time of year. We have lots of good things in the works for you, but we’ve also been doing a few not SGLS things. Check them out…
Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly
The fourth issue of the SciFi Romance Quarterly magazine is now available! This marks the first year of the magazine. Woot! This issue was a themed issue focused on Cyborgs. My column title this quarter is I Like Big Cyborgs and I Cannot Lie. Just a brush of background on cyborgs in fiction, a quick dip into deep thought, then off to the sexy book recommendations. If you’ve been following SGLS since the beginning, there is nothing really new from me–sometimes I feel like I’m the old lady in the rocking chair and you’ve heard all my stories–but if not, this is your chance to catch up.
Lots of lovely new followers lately. Welcome and thank you so much for joining us!
This issue also includes new SciFi Romance Releases for the quarter, reviews, several great opinion and discussion pieces and a sweet reviewer roundtable, including our very own Toni and RK. See the whole lovely magazine here: http://issuu.com/sfrq/docs/scifiromancequarterly-issue04
Smart Girls in Print
My fellow bloggers aren’t very good at tooting their own horns, so I have to take a minute to give a shout out to Chudney and RK.
You may have noticed that Chudney has been MIA for the last couple of months. She’s been busy getting ready for her first foray into published fiction. Her paranormal werewolf romance novella, Full Circle, is now available at the major online retailers.
RK will be putting SciFi Obscure on hiatus this month to wrap up her own piece of fiction. Notice I didn’t say her first. No that one is done and ready for release next month. Mr. Rumpel and Mr. Grimm is expected to release from Less Than Three Press LLC October 29th under RK’s pen name– Echo Ishii. It’s a fairy tale romance.
Now if you’re getting worried, have no fear. Not every blogger here is working on a book, so the spice (aka posts) will flow.
Where is She Now?
No longer with the SGLS blog but always in our hearts, former SG reviewer Trina is back to blogging and reviewing in her old haunt: the AfterDarkRendevous blog. Be sure to pay her a visit.
Are you afraid of change? It is a common feeling. I felt it now and then, but normally I embrace change as the opportunity it often is. Sometimes I feel the fear but embrace it anyway. I managed to pull off that tricky balance recently when I was asked to appear on Changes – a new online conversation hosted by Sally Ember EdD, author of the Spanner Series and much more. I’ve been acquainted with Sally for several years via the blog. and through her writing. We talked about SciFi and technology mostly. Despite my intense fear of being on camera, I survived and managed to have tons of fun. There were a few technical glitches, but if you’d like to check it out you can find past episodes on Sally’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqnZuobf0YTCiP6silDDL2w or watch the next episode live at: https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cs227v7pv1hcdnesugnvs5dua0o.
And the Beat Goes On
To wrap this post up, hope you all have a great week ahead. Tomorrow we have Elizabeth with her latest post on SciFi TV, Thursday it is a cover reveal for an upcoming SFR title., then (hopefully) the long overdue Inbox post. I really need to get to it before my email account explodes.
Please tell us what you’ve been up to in the comments.
Cheers for now!
P.S. What is up with the cow? Seriously? LOL
