SFR News & Links For July 2015


When you're in the mood for a sci-fi romance, here are some new titles to choose from!

New releases

LIBERATION'S KISS - Wendy Lynn Clark

The Old Empire has crumbled. Strong factions prey on the weak, and strongest of all are those who ally themselves with the mysterious Robotics Faction…

Cressida Sarit Antiata is twelve years old when her diplomat parents learn that her name has appeared on the Robotics Faction Kill List, a classified document of dangerous individuals marked for execution. Calling in all of their connections, her parents smuggle her to a small but wealthy ore-producing moon where she grows up in anonymous luxury, secure that her data is safe.

Until now.

Xan | Arch is an x-class android with one mission: execute the target n81, also known as Cressida Sarit Antiata. Although he possesses biological skin, hair, fingernails, and eyes – and extensive conditioning to pass as a sweating, swearing, rough-and-tumble everyman - beneath the surface, he is all machine.

When he arrives at the moon, something unexpected is waiting for him. Something that circumvents his execution order and forces him to protect Cressida instead. Something that gives him the free will to question his makers, control his destiny, and awaken his heart.

Together, they might escape their destinies and forge an entirely new future.

If they can survive...

Housekeeping

Life aboard The Galaxy Express has been a little quiet lately and my plan is to resume regular blogging soon. Real Life Stuff plus the start of summer vacation for my daughter has meant decreased computer time (all you parents out there know of what I speak!). That said, I've got quite a few items on tap.

TGE's July roundup will appear per the usual schedule. I've been working on posts for Heroes & Heartbreakers and other sites. In the coming weeks, you can look forward to a few author guest posts and showcases here. My TBR pile is deliciously big; I've been reading voraciously; and I can't wait to blog about my latest sci-fi romance adventures for you!

Another housekeeping issue of note: Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly #7 is ready to go, but will be slightly delayed while we attend to web site maintenance. Look for the next issue during the first week of July. In the meantime, follow SFRQ on Twitter (@SciFiRomance) for interesting SFR news as well as links to archived content.

Joyfully yours,
Heather
