Got a couple of links for the Brigade. First up, Heather Massey blogged at Book Den about automatons! It's a fun blog, so please pop over and support her! Besides, there is a giveaway. :-)
Also, Cindi Myer's Market News blog has news from RWA. She spotlights Avon today. Was disappointed that their "all" romance markets didn't mention SFR, but there is interesting news, not the least, publishers "need? authors. Wow. Sounds like, for the first time in a long time, pubs were pitching to authors! Just past the Avon update, she posts a new market for speculative fiction! They don't seem totally in love with the idea of love in the books, but they do leave the door open.
