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!

Since Laurie posted her five films to inspire writers last week, I thought I'd share five of mine and the inspirational quotes or themes they gave me. They also tend to be my go-to comfort watches, films I go back to again and again when I just want to cuddle up under a blanket and forget about the real world (this isn't all of them, just my cosiest).

5 Movies Writers Can Watch When Discouraged
It's tough being a writer these days. Although the gates were thrown wide open with the onset of independent publishing--thereby removing the "gatekeepers" and allowing thousands of writers to achieve their dream of becoming published authors, it also came with a downside.It allowed thousands more writers to become published authors.The advantage became the disadvantage. A two-edged sword indeed. Now that the marketplace is flooded with millions of books by independent authors... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

Not All Babies Are Beautiful To The Eye
This week I've been spending a lot of time on a special project out in my garden (more details later) instead of doing important stuff like editing or, in my husband's opinion, putting the laundry away (I'm a terrible housewife!). And during the week, a local pigeon kept spooking my chooks in the garden by repeatedly crashing into a nearby tree. It was particularly annoying because it was the same tree over and over again. This particular pigeon didn't seem to get the idea that this tree was ... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...
