Giving Away an eBook Every Day This Week!
Just so you know… You can still go back and comment on my posts from earlier this week to enter the drawings. I’ll be announcing all the winners on my final day as blog mom, this Saturday. So you have until Friday night to enter all the drawings. Get hopping!
Today, I want to talk a little bit about one of my favorite genres – sci fi romance. While it’s not quite as popular as some other genres, sci fi romance is near and dear to my geeky little heart.
Earlier this year, I finally finished the 5-book story arc of my Resonance Mates series. It’s a futuristic ménage series started way back at the beginning of my writing career and the fact that I finally got to the end of the originally-planned arc is incredibly gratifying to me.
Resonance Mates explores a future Earth where aliens who have been here before – during the Dark Ages – have returned to our modern world and basically destroyed civilization as we know it. In that sense, it’s a post-apocalyptic storyline, where what’s left of humanity has to struggle to survive and the aliens have to come to understand the error of what they’ve done to our planet and our people. The aliens also have to learn about love and emotion and who better to teach them than the human race?
Although I always planned to bring the story full circle by book 5 – HARRY’S SACRIFICE – which came out in March of this year, I left it so that I could spinoff other stories set in the same basic world. I hope to get back to that world next year, after I’ve brought my paranormal series to an endpoint. This year seems to be all about paranormal. Hopefully next year will be a little more varied.
Resonance Mates started with HARA’S LEGACY – a book I wrote intending it for a specific publisher, who sat on my submission for over a year before rejecting it without ever having read it. Frustration is not an adequate word to describe how that made me feel. I turned around and submitted it to my Samhain editor and it was contracted within 3 days. That made me feel a whole lot better! And when it won the EPPIE Award for Best Sci Fi/Futuristic Erotic Romance that year, I felt totally vindicated. I believed in that book, even when others couldn’t give it the time of day.
So today, I’m going to give away an ebook copy of HARRY’S SACRIFICE to one random commenter on this post. Tell me if you like sci fi romance and if so, what about it appeals to you. Do you like space opera (a la Star Wars)? Or do you prefer post-apocalyptic stuff like my Resonance Mates, set on a future earth? Do you enjoy reading about aliens? Or do you prefer something else? Let me know what you think about the genre! As I said, I’ll post all the winners at the end of the week, so you have until Friday to enter. Comment away!
