Roccinette
This past week I had great cause to celebrate. The news came out that The Expanse was being renewed for a third season on the SyFy channel.

Break out the champagne and the Billins, everyone, the party is on!

Wow, it's the end of January already. That went surprisingly fast, and I can't say that I'm sorry. I want Spring to hurry along!
While I am still picking away at Keir's Shadow, January has mainly been taken up by job hunting and completing a second Rey cosplay, this time for fellow SW fangirl Patty Hammond. This was my first 'commission' piece, so nerve-racking in two respects: firstly that I wasn't doing it for myself or my kids so hoping like mad it would be well received, and sec... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...
92 Meeting Your Writing Heroes
51ya6s3q7dl. ac us160
Since becoming a published author I've had the pleasure of working with, knowing, and even becoming friends with a large number of fellow authors along the way. I haven't always read all of their books but many are on my bookshelves, be they real or virtual, and for those I haven't read I still admire their work and understand the many peculiarities of our craft.

But there are a handful of authors who leave me a bit more...star struck? I've been privileged to meet some of them: the lat... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

88 YOUR BEST GAL'S BEST PAL: SECONDARY CHARACTERS IN SFR
Frodo sam


If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know I’m what is known as a “plotter” in writers’ jargon. I start out a new book by—oh, joy!—sketching out characters and backstory and a rough outline before I ever write a line.

So, I usually know my main characters—hero, heroine and villain—pretty well before we even get started. But the secondary characters of my novels? That’s where my intuition really comes out to play. All sorts of viv...

It’s that time of year again, when those of us with either a competitive bent or a masochistic streak hit the big writing contest circuit. Or, more precisely, when our books or manuscripts are being judged on that circuit. That also means some of us, at least, are serving as judges of our peers’ work or mentoring unpublished authors in manuscript contests.

I must have “Punish Me” (or maybe “Bwahahahahaha!”) written in big letters on my forehead, because ...

83 Can Horses and SFR Ever Mix?
Silverheartoftexas2
I could subtitle this segment: Should I put a horse...in spaaaaaaace? :)

When a friend posted a reminder that February is "Love Your Horse" month, it got the idea wheels turning in my head, once again. Then I saw this blog from Tor.com: Genre Runs on Horsepower: Introducing the SFF Equine and my muse got a little over-excited, insisting that I really need to put a horse in a sci-fi romance.... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...
