tayluca said...

I'm an avid Romance reader and slightly more than occasional SciFi reader. I only very recently discovered SciFiRomace genre books and I'm very interested in reading more. I'll be crossing my fingers in hopes of a few freebies to help the pocketbook out a little. :)

I love SciFi, fantasy, and paranormal as well as romance, so SciFi Romance is great. Since Claire Delacroix is a new author for me, it would be fabulous to win her books so I can have a new author to follow.

Hey Ella -

I'm in Canada, so will ship to Canada and UK as well as the US. :-) That's it, though - the postage gets too wild for the rest of the world.

FALLEN is not yet available digitally (boo hoo) although GUARDIAN is on Kindle. FYI.

Good luck everyone!

"Hearts Afire" looks interesting. I'm a firefighter myself. I ought to get a copy to take to the fire station. The entire concept of SFR is new to me, having only heatrd about it today. I've read a *lot* of regular SF and am wondering if this subgenre is written such that readers of regular SF would enjoy it too?

Nifty promotion. ALthough I think one of the blogger links got messed up.

Take it to the Stars I am sure doesn't think they are SF romance related.

SFR Holiday Blitz

I'd love to get my hands on these titles. I'm writing my first novel now and suspect it would be marketed as a science fiction romance. But I definitely need to research this genre and find some great, comparable novels.

Thanks for this contest!

Anne said...

These look like great reads!

Trishe said...

Would *love* to win these books, please add my name to the growing pile. :-)

The bookcrack publisher BAEN did this to me, too. They gave me free books which addicted me, so I give them my money for more books, more books!

flchen1 said...

Ella, thanks for this wonderful way to celebrate SFR and the holidays! I'm relatively new to the genre but have been really enjoying it so far!

Madd said...

I've been reading sci-fi and romance since I was 9. Getting both of them in one book is my idea of awesome.
