SFR Stuff I've Been Meaning To Blog About

And away we go:

The RT BookReviews blog posted coverage of Linnea Sinclair's Intergalactic Bar & Grille at the 2011 RT Booklovers Convention. Highlights include a variety of author news including:

* teasers from Marcella Burnard regarding her next release, ENEMY GAMES
* details about a free erotic SFR re-release from Cricket Starr
*  Nathalie Gray's latest sale, a cyberpunk romance to Samhain Publishing.

There's lots more, too, so please do check it out.

Speaking of Nathalie Gray, she recently blogged about being the recipient of two Readers' Choice Awards for her covers (visit her cover artist page www.kanaxa.com to see more of her work). Congratulations!

Speaking of II: Author Kylie Griffin interviewed author Marcella Burnard.

Samhain Publishing has put out a special call for its Superhero Romance Anthology. Submission guidelines here. Definitely an opportunity for authors of science fiction romance! (Thanks to Lilly Cain for the alert).

In other publisher news, the editors of Carina Press posted updates about what they're seeking in submissions. SFR (especially steampunk) made the list. From the comments, there seems to be quite a bit of interest in this subgenre. Boo-yah!

Red Sage Publishing will also consider sci-fi romance of various heat levels. Check out this surprising paragraph from its submission guidelines:

As Red Sage’s first authors created erotic romance, this is where our heart is, so we want romance stories, which are erotic. Therefore a majority of what we publish will be romance and erotica. We also feel readers want variety. Sometimes you like erotic and sometimes you just want a great mystery or science fiction story or even something else. Surprise us and come up with something completely different!

 SFR Brigade's Thursday Tag Party is still going strong. The latest books to tag are Frances Pauli's superhero romance FRIEND OR FOE and Diane Dooley's space opera romance BLUE GALAXY.

This just in from Blu-ray.com: THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU will be available on Blu-ray on June 1, 2011 (In case you missed the post, I saw the film in the theater and blogged about my experience). Here's the lowdown on the Blu-ray features:
