Our topic at the SFF Seven this week – in honor of Pride Month – is to promote LGBTQ+ Artists, Authors, or Creatives. Since I’m fresh this morning from attending SFWA’s Nebula Awards last night (online, natch – though next year will be in person again!), and since the awards ceremony was funny and moving and simply an amazing celebration, I’ll share about that. Come on over!
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!
