Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is Discovering New-To-You Authors: Where would you direct someone wanting to read more from emerging authors in your subgenre?
I’m going to cheat a bit today and point you to an article I wrote for the SFWA Blog: A Guide for Authors on Recommending Books. I’m not cheating for my usual reasons – too busy, running behind, general laziness – but because I really like this article and I think it’s useful for this topic.
Despite the title, it’s useful for readers, too!
That’s because we can all make an effort to diversify our reading, and this article talks about ways to do that – including resources for finding new-to-us authors who aren’t from the usual walks.
Go forth and find cool new stuff!
Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is “Room for Growth.” We’re discussing one aspect of our writing or publishing careers – that we can control! – that we’d like to improve this year.
This topic is apropos for me right now because I’m in the midst of a push to boost (wedge, shove, or squeeze) my career to a new level. Come on over to find out more!
Happy 2021 everyone!!
First things first: If you haven’t yet read Book One in my Forgotten Empires trilogy, THE ORCHID THRONE ebook is on sale for only $2.99 all month. This is a great opportunity to start the series, as Book Three, THE PROMISED QUEEN, comes out in May!
We’re kicking off a new year here at the SFF Seven and we’re talking writer fitness. If sitting is the new smoking, what are the perils of a sedentary art and how do you counteract it?
That means it’s time for my regular evangelistic sermon on the many virtues of my walking desk!! Come on over to find out more. You know you want to.

Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is to promote our stuff or someone else’s. I can bop two birdies gently on the head (because I’m not a vicious murderer of wildlife) and share this super fun event! If you missed the live event, you can watch the recording here.

Our topic at the SFF Seven this week is our favorite Christmas-adjacent (or other holiday-adjacent) movies. Now, I’m a Christmas-loving gal, so if you don’t celebrate or don’t care, feel free to skip. This will not be on the final.
If you DO care, come on over for my Top Five!
This week at the SFF Seven, we’re sharing a snippet from a work in progress. We’re supposed to “tease” with one paragraph, but I’m going the extra multiple-paragraph mile. Since UNDER A WINTER SKY releases this week (you can preorder until Thursday for only $5.99, when the price goes up), I’m sharing the first chapter and a hint of the second chapter of my novella, The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon. This story is a prequel to a brand new series I’m starting, Heirs of Magic. Book One is THE GOLDEN GRYPHON AND THE BEAR PRINCE, and will be out in January. It picks up where The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon leaves off.
Apropos of #NaNoWriMo, our topic at the SFF Seven this week is “How long should my book be?” We’re exploring the seemingly ever changing definitions of “book” length, novella length, etc. Come on over for the answer!
This week at the SFF Seven, we’re digging in the bone yard and resurrecting… a backlist book!
