Celebrating Science Fiction Romance

I'm gearing up for two weeks of Science Fiction Romance (SFR) goodness. Here are 13 ways I'm celebrating my favorite genre.
  1. Dec 1 - I was a guest on Rowena Cherry's Crazy Tuesday podcast this week, talking about SFR. If you'd like to take a listen, it's archived here. Other guests were Heather Massey of The Galaxy Express, Danger Gal Lisa Paitz Spindler, and SciFi Guy Doug Knipe.
  2. Dec 2 - Posted an article with a short list of futuristics/SFR with viruses as part of the plot. Check out How did the wasp get its sting?
  3. Dec 3 - Thursday 13. This post!
  4. Dec 5 - Blogging about the last SFR I read, Taking Liberty by Jodi Redford.
  5. Dec 6 - Kick off of The SFR Holiday Blitz, an exciting SFR scavenger hunt featuring myself (yay!) and 11 other bloggers, highlighting 17 authors and over 30 prizes.
  6. Dec 7 - Release of Hearts Afire: December from Liquid Silver Books. This two-novella e-book anthology features "This Fire" by Elise Logan & Emily Ryan-Davis and my SFR novella, "Firestorm on E'Terra"
  7. Dec 7 - Visiting with author Nikki Duncan, discussing modern day heroes and how they inspired my futuristic story, "Firestorm on E'Terra".
  8. Dec 8 - Blogging at Liquid Silver about "Firestorm on E'Terra"
  9. Dec 9 - Posting a list of SFR free reads out there, including GMS Mercy by Elise Logan and Emily Ryan-Davis
  10. Dec 10 - For Thursday 13, I'll be posting 13 lines from "Firestorm on E'Terra"
  11. Dec 11 - Will be in a Holiday Blog Tour with other Liquid Silver authors, once again featuring "Firestorm on E'Terra". Lots of prizes to win!
  12. Bonus event: from Dec 11th to Dec 17th at noon EST, I'll be participating in another scavenger hunt. This one sponsored by Samhain authors, with a chance to win ebooks and a Sony ereader to read all those SFR/Futuristics you've been dying to read. Details will be posted here and at the Samhellion.
  13. Wrapping it all up on Dec 14th with Excerpt Monday, when I'll be posting an excerpt from my SFR "Firestorm on E'Terra"
