Exclusive Triple Cover Reveal: Laurie A. Green's INHERIT THE STARS


While blogging about sci-fi romance at Spacefreighters Lounge (since 2007!) and running the SFR Brigade (500 members strong!), Laurie A. Green has also been busy writing sci-fi romances of her own. In the process, she became a multiple RWA Golden Heart Award finalist for her books. While I was happy for her achievements, I'm even happier her work is now entering the sci-fi romance arena of published books!

Her debut SFR is FAREWELL ANDROMEDA. Now she's aboard The Galaxy Express with an exclusive triple cover reveal of her next three releases!

INHERIT THE STARS is the first novel in her The Inherited Stars series and will be released in three parts. The individual titles are FLIGHT, THE NETWORK, and SACRIFICE.

The first installment, FLIGHT, is scheduled to release in late February 2015, and a winter/spring 2015 release is the plan for the next two parts.

Here's the (unofficial) blurb for INHERIT THE STARS:

Print Release News For R.K. Mann's THE TRADER: MAN WITH NO FACE

R.K. Mann's THE TRADER: MAN WITH NO FACE is now out in paperback (the digital edition released in March 2014, but I didn't learn about it until recently). Thought I'd alert my passengers in case any of you prefer your SFR in print! Looks like it features a hero with a major disability (more diversity in SFR, yay!). Here's the cover and blurb:

A Patusian trader on an intergalactic mission awakens to discover that his space ship is gone. His eyes and ears are missing and only gaping holes remain of his nose and mouth. In place of his normal senses he has inexplicably gained the power of telepathy, which he must harness as his only defense against the ferocious and highly evolved aliens, the drogan Kin, who hunt him for food.

Maranth, a beautiful young doctor, was briefed about the depravities of sex, violence, and intoxication before she left her cultured home planet, Veddi, to practice medicine at an off-world mine. But when Afthari raiders attack the mine and enslave her, she finds herself in a world frighteningly different from the perfect, structured society in which she was raised.

Against all odds, the trader finds his way into the Afthari raider colony and uses his telepathy to communicate with Maranth, the only kind soul he finds there. Together, they embark on a daring journey to return home. In the process, these two very different people regain what they’ve lost, and much more.

Set in a tumultuous future, The Trader: Man With No Face raises difficult questions about the nature of love, social perfection and identity.

FAREWELL ANDROMEDA Ebook & Gift Card Giveaway From Laurie A. Green


Debut author Laurie A. Green (you may know her as the longtime SFR blogger behind Spacefreighters Lounge and SFR Brigade) is aboard The Galaxy Express with a giveaway to help celebrate the release of her sci-fi romance novelette FAREWELL ANDROMEDA

In addition to a Kindle digital copy of her book, the winner will also receive an Amazon e-gift card worth $10.00 (and these days ten bucks can equal quite a few sci-fi romances, hint, hint!).

Here's the cover and blurb of her sparkly new book:


Fresh off a painful jilting, the last thing deep space pilot Tiharra Bell needs is another romantic entanglement. Certainly not with the galaxy’s most famous astronomer-who also happens to be single, inconveniently handsome, and a resident of the remote Andromeda Station. But Tiharra soon discovers two terrible truths about Dr. Dante “Donner” Dane 1) he’s not the man he appears to be and 2) he doesn’t have long to live. Before her fourteen day layover is complete, she’ll put her life and career on the line to protect his heartbreaking secret.
