Let me tell you the story of how my upcoming release Courting Disaster: StarDog 2 came about. It's kind of a twisty tale...just like the novella.Instead of me rehashing my initial struggle, here's the video that explains how I ended up writing for Pets in Space 2, better known as Embrace the Romance. Clearly a case of two characters asserting their strong wills on their author. It happens. (I think most authors can relate.)It's true that Captain ... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

Cyborgs in Sci-Fi
Jwvazy2g09ll0izd6mxf kxk5enszm5rkfixybmwxmnd8 dr0beaaujocfkvfryhwjyp11vw23qjzwsh=w1200 h630 n k no nu


There are a lot of books around these days starring cyborgs, and I guess we all know what a cyborg is – the definition is "a fictional or hypothetical person whose physical abilities are extended beyond normal human limitations by mechanical elements built into the body". They've been around for ages. The earliest (prominent) one I can remember is Steve Austin in the Six Million Dollar Man. Mm-m Quite the hunk. Then there was Robocop, and as we all know, Cynthia Sax has a series...

LIFE INTRUDES, SO HERE'S A VIDEO

Sorry, folks, it's been one of those weeks. Revisions due on Not Fade Away, Interstellar Rescue Series, Book 4, family issues demanding attention, and other . . . stuff. I could discuss that trending topic, the Oxford Comma, or show you more pictures of hurricane-caused destruction, but I will spare you. Enjoy this video of Odd Friends and take it as a lesson to us all.Cheers, Donna spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

Magic New Mexico - New
Madeforherfinal
So today my blog theme is Magic New Mexico. We're very lucky to live in a state that is chock full of history and ancient tradition. Did you know Santa Fe was settled by Europeans at about the same time as Jamestown? It's true. Did you know we have the oldest church and government building? Also true. Did you know we had the first citizen's militia that would later evolve into the National Guard? That's subject to debate, with some of the eastern states laying claim to the title, but it is tr... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

This week, in a continuing Saturday series of video responses by authors we have a new topic: Why did we price Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2 as we did? Much thought went into the price point, and the two authors who spearheaded the set weigh in on why the story collection is such a great value for readers.The interviewer is Narelle Todd of Get My Book Out There.

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS
Reporter conducting an interview
I have some very smart friends. You might even call them experts, in a wide variety of fields. And that’s lucky for me, a writer and jack of all trades, but master of none. When I set out to write a story that requires knowledge of something about which I know little—kidnapping, say, or psychiatry—a Google search will only get me so far. Good thing I happen to know the right people.
Let me say right here that I believe the old saw “write what you know” ca...

Remembering

I couldn't begin my blog today without first pausing to honor the fallen and the survivors of a terrible, fateful day that is now more than a decade and a half behind us.This is a day when most Americans will pause to remember, and reminisce where they were and what they were doing sixteen years ago when they felt the ground shake, or saw the planes strike, or heard the breaking news, or saw the buildings fall...

The Marks Hall Sculpture Trail
Wp 20170825 010
During the holidays, a local stately home and garden ran an extra exhibition - a sculpture trail with more than 300 pieces from 59 national and international sculptures set in their extensive grounds. A couple of friends had already posted some pictures from the trail - a mirrored portal which immediately got my attention - so we decided to give it a go. It would take me weeks to post all the images, so instead I've hand-picked a few with a scifi theme/feel to them and a few of my absolute fa... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...
