The 3rd Annual SFR Galaxy Awards

Calling all sci-fi romance readers! It's time for the SFR Galaxy Awards!

Now in its third year, this award celebrates science fiction romance in a broad, inclusive way. To refresh your memory, here's the basic philosophy behind this event:

What is the “SFR Galaxy Awards”?

The SFR Galaxy Awards is an annual, multi-award event for science fiction romance books. Launched in 2012 by bloggers Laurie A. Green of Spacefreighters Lounge and Heather Massey of The Galaxy Express, the goal of this event is to honor a variety of standout stories.

How is this award event different?
 
The theme of the SFR Galaxy Awards is inclusiveness. Instead of giving an award to a single book, this event will recognize the worth of multiple books and/or the standout elements they contain. The basic philosophy behind this approach is to help connect readers with books.
For more information, visit the "About" page.

Starting at 10 a.m. EST and spaced one hour apart, the award posts will go live throughout the day. Here's the order in which they'll appear:

Special Release Price for RESTORATION, KS Augustin's New Sc-Fi Romance


An unexpected four day weekend for my daughter ate into my blogging time, but you know what? It's a great excuse to share the cover and blurb for RESTORATION, a new sci-fi romance release from KS Augustin!


In politics, is there a place for love?

Van Motaff, renowned philosopher and Rahfonist, is looking ahead to Retirement, but the planetary government has other plans. Something unprecedented has happened—a young, male Rahfoni has been raised by aliens for the past thirty years—and Van has been chosen to restore him to Rahfon society.

Even though the eyes of two worlds are on her, Van thinks the job will be straightforward enough. But when her charge, Eton Abless, is injured, an irate governor interferes, demanding that the young man be neutralised as a potential political threat. Van resists and finds herself falling into a forbidden romance with her student…a romance that may mean the end of her reputation and career, and his permanent exile. As her options narrow, Van is forced to face the conclusion that the only way to save Eton may be to lose him completely.

***
[I blogged about this book last year and as you can see, it gained a new title. :)]

RESTORATION will have a special release price of $3.00 if you purchase it at Sandal Press (the RRP $5.99 starts April 2015 at all major retailers).

Happy reading!

Joyfully yours,
Heather
