The SFR Brigade membership has selected a cover for our first anthology. Here's the big reveal:
The anthology features nine stories from nine different authors in a variety of styles and settings including space opera, near future, apocalyptic, Earth-based and alien romance. (You may even discover some favorite characters from Science Fiction Romance in the line-up. *wink*)
The price of the anthology? Free!
Our plan is to conquer the universe reach a wide audience with this stellar story sampling--especially all the Science Fiction Romance fans out there who don't yet realize they are SFR fans! (Resistance is futile.)
We're shooting for a midsummer launch of the Tales from the SFR Brigade Anthology.
I'm looking to expand this list. Authors, if you have a
science fiction romance(s) in a permanent free-99 cent price range and
like your book considered for this list, please contact me (Heather) at
sfrgalaxy “at” gmail.com. (For limited-time promotional discounts, I'll
help spread the word via blog posts, Twitter, and Facebook).
Two new and FREE short stories are part of this event:
Sunburst has four imprints:
• SUNBURST: single-title science fiction romance novels of 60,000 – 100,000 words.
