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 Massey's Steampunk Café: June Column

This month at the Coffee Time Romance Steampunk site, I present A Trio of Sampled Steampunk Romances!
This is a great problem to have: various steampunk romances at my virtual fingertips and wondering which one to read! So rather than make an immediate decision, I figured, why not do a little sampling? Plus, it would be an opportunity to try some new-to-me authors. Now that I’ve finished sampling the three titles I picked, I decided to share my initial impressions and tag various story elements for you.
Joyfully yours,

Interview With DEPTHS OF BLUE Author Lise MacTague

Did you hear that? It's the sound of my "Squee!" since I have the honor of presenting an interview with author Lise MacTague. Discovering new sci-fi romances are the best kind of surprises! Her debut book DEPTHS OF BLUE (Bella Books) came out in May 2015. It's the first of a trilogy. Check out the cover and blurb:

For Torrin Ivanov, life is a bargaining table. Every planet is a new business opportunity. Legality is optional and supplying one side in a local civil war always adds up to profit.

Jak Stowell is at war within a war. A woman hidden in the heart of a male-only army, her brother’s murder has left her desperate for vengeance. Her skill as a sniper gives her both the disguise she needs and paves the way ever closer to her real goal. She kills efficiently, without remorse. Putting down an off-world smuggler will be no different.

A moment’s hesitation. A flicker of doubt. Two women on a collision course set off a chain reaction of intergalactic intrigue—and awaken a dangerous passion that could cost them their lives.
