Sci-Fi Romance Upcoming Events

* File this news under “Most Excellent.” Author Joely Sue Burkhart (LADY DOCTOR WYRE) is reviving Coyote Con, the virtual SF/F/Horror/Romance conference! It will run October 26-28. (Thanks to author K. for the heads up). 

Here’s the lowdown:

Coyote Con celebrates the trickster.  Breaking rules.  Stealing fire.  Telling jokes.  Whether cunning or mischievous, villain or hero, the trickster is an important part of mythology and the Hero’s Journey.

Coyote Con is an online convention for writers and readers of all flavors of SFF, horror, and romance.  Yes, those do go together!  If you love stories blending mythology, fairy tales, spine-tingling horror, futuristic worlds, epic fantasy, and romance from sweet to spicy, we welcome you.  Stop by the forums and get to know us, and return in October for panels in our chatrooms on topics ranging from monsters to aliens, love to serial killers, and anything that goes bump in the night.

The inaugural Coyote Con was hosted in 2010 by Drollerie Press, a micro publisher specializing in the weird and fantastical, which has sadly since closed its doors.  Originally published with Drollerie Press in 2007, author Joely Sue Burkhart is now the proud host of Coyote Con.  If you’re an author interested in participating in a panel or writing a guest blog for the website, please contact her at joelysueburkhart AT gmail DOT com.

I will be participating in a couple of SFR-related panels (with prizes!) and I’d love to see you there!

* Over the next few months, authors of sci-fi romance will be jaunting around the blogosphere doing blog tours and/or general promotion for new releases. Some will offer giveaways, too, including right here at The Galaxy Express!


Nina Croft (BREAK OUT; extended version, trade paperback release)
Diane Dooley (BLUE NEBULA)


Sharon Lynn Fisher (GHOST PLANET; see Web home page for dates)



Are there any more sci-fi romance authors out there with an upcoming blog tour this fall? If so, leave a comment and I’ll add you to the list!

* Also, Zoe Archer has redesigned her Web site (not an event per se, but still shiny!). Check out the new look and get updates on all of her sci-fi romance & steampunk romance book releases.

Joyfully yours,
