Guest Blogging At Ex Libris About Steampunk Romance, Plus Giveaway

Stella of the blog Ex Libris is spotlighting steampunk romance this month! I'm excited to be a guest blogger on the topic with my post, "Steampunk Romance: It's Not Just Fantastical--It's Fantastic!"

When developing the post, I realized that my love of steampunk romance has very deep roots, and it's an experience I haven't even blogged about elsewhere yet. It's wild to think about how certain early experiences can influence us decades later.

While there, you can enter for a chance to win a copy of my erotic clockpunk romances THE WATCHMAKER'S LADY and THE BLACKSMITH'S LOVER.

Thanks for reading!

Fellow Brigaders, I come bearing news regarding THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF FUTURISTIC ROMANCE. This sci-fi romance paperback anthology from Running Press is edited by Trisha Telep and has a release date of January 2013.

Featured authors include Linnea Sinclair, Jess Granger, Susan Sizemore, C.L. Wilson, Charlene Teglia, Bianca D'Arc, and more!

I haven't been able to uncover all of the authors involved--are there any right here at SFR Brigade? If so, we'd love to hear from you and I invite you to share a bit about your story at The Galaxy Express.

This anthology has been a long time coming and it seems as though the release date has already been pushed back once. Therefore, I'm asking that we use the combined force of our social networks to get out the word about this release and let Running Press and Trisha Telep know we want it!

Thanks so much for your help!
