Dipping my toe into the world of #Sci-fi #Romance

Back cover, Looking for Trouble.

Like many of the laideeeees I like a bit of romance: no squelchy bits, I prefer to imagine the squelching for myself. I’m interested in the way love affects people and that’s probably why my characters get it on from time to time. That said, I’ve never dared pitch my books as full on romance because… well… there’s the odd snog, and a bit of enthusiastic grinding, no actual sex. Even so, I have got to know many romance writers as cyber buddies over the years and as well as being ruthlessly well organised and efficient they are an incredibly friendly bunch, and generous about sharing their knowledge with dumb schmucks like myself. A lot of the stuff I know about selling books on the internet is information I’ve gathered from romance  writers.

And guess what? There are many, many flavours of romance and they are not all spicy, some are what’s referred to as ‘clean’. So that makes my books ‘clean romance’ which is cool because it’s yet another genre I can add to my ever expanding book description. Imagine my delight when I happened up on the Science Fiction Romance Brigade. Yes, there is a niche for sci-fi with romance in it. So obviously, I joined up straight away!

They are a lovely bunch with many and varied books to their names, some spicy, some clean and some between and they have kindly allowed me to witter on on their blog, so if you liked the romantic aspect of the K’Barthan Series it’s worth a visit. Forget reading my drivvel, there are give aways, book recommendations and all sorts of new authors for you to try while for authors there is expertise, camaraderie and general interest from other people who write science fiction with romance in it.

You can find the Brigade’s blog, and my post, here. And you can interact with them on their facebook site here,

  1. Hey! I write romance! I’m off to sign up.

  2. Reblogged this on Lyn Horner's Corner and commented:
    Revelations about Sci-fi Romance from my friend MT McGuire. As always, her delightful sense of humor made me grin. :-))

  3. Thanks for the tip, MT. I’m heading over to the Brigade now.

    I did notice a Scifi Romance meme at Sue Ann Bowling’s blog, but hadn’t worked it out. Might be something I should consider when I get my randy asteroid miners out in the world!

    Whoo hoo, romantic MT! 😉

  6. I can’t think of the last time I heard the term “snogging” lol. This post made my day–er–evening. Thanks for sharing!
