Sci-fi Romance
started by CailinBriste

For those who read, write, publish, and love science fiction romance. Let's go beyond the promotional blitz to what moves us to read and write this genre of romance fiction.  Our community helps filter through each submission before it reaches our group’s feed, ensuring focus on only relevant and high quality posts. As the group founder, I hope to avoid the regular round of book promos. Blurbs, cover reveals, new releases of individual titles, excerpts will over run this group if we pass them through. Author interviews, posts that get into the nitty gritty of how an author went about world building are much more interesting and more likely to snare regular sci-fi readers or romance readers into trying sci-fi romance. Thanks. And I love all the involvement right from the start!

93 By Any Other Name? by @Kellie_Doherty

by Kellie Doherty

Naming a character can be difficult. A character’s name—especially a main character—has to be special, not too weird as to be unrecognizable or unreadable but unique enough to be remembered. The name can have some historical symbolism, character trait, or hidden greatness to be revealed at a later date. The point is, naming a character is an important aspect of writing. So, where in the galaxy do you start...

Or at least that was my thought when I first began the process of world-building the crown jewel in Dragonus Galaxy.  Hi everyone, I’m Jay Shaw – author of The Space Colonel’s Woman, book one in my sci-fi action/adventure romance series, Dragonus Chronicles.

When we first meet Julia Swift, she lives and works on Earth, but dreams of space pilots and a world beyond her own.  A world she believes only exists in the scriptwriter’s ...

79 Juggling Chainsaws—Work-Life Balance for Writers
Webelizabeth
by Elizabeth Schechter



If you work, or have worked, in the corporate world for any length of time, you've probably heard the term "work-life balance." Modern white-collar employment is all about maximizing work-life balance, which means that you should leave work at work, and when you're at home, you should focus on family and leisure. It's a teeter-totter -- when one side is up, you're at work. When the other side is up, you play. Toggle on, toggle off.  Looks good on p...

79 Relating to Alien Characters by Belinda McBride

by Belinda McBride

Many years ago, I had the amazing opportunity to chat briefly with the late Majel Roddenberry. It was at a Star Trek convention in San Francisco. I confess, I’d never attended an event like this before, and when a friend told me she was going, I went along mostly out of curiosity.

The take-away from that chat was something I’m sure she shared often throughout her career. She told me that her late husband Gene R...
