Ok, this is up much later than I had hoped, so I sincerely apologise to anyone that had been waiting for this. But anyway...
Today on my blog I have the wonderful Veronica Scott, who is part of the Nebula Nights anthology - a series of Sci-Fi Romances that are guaranteed to sweep you away. She gave me a fantastic guest post as to how she got involved with the series. So without further ado, I would like to hand over to Veronica to tell you all how she got involved with this project.
Why did I choose to be part of a boxed set?
I’ve always loved anthologies and boxed sets – Regency Christmas tales, paranormal shifters, science fiction – you name it! As a reader, I enjoy being able to sample a number of new-to-me authors in one spot, for an attractive low price. I’ve found many autobuy Favorites as a result. So when the boxed set phenomenon started happening in the indie-pub world, I really wanted to get one of my books out there. When Lyn Brittan mentioned online that she was thinking of putting together a boxed set of science fiction romance stories and was anyone interested, I was thrilled to sign up.
For me, this Nebula Nights collection is a wonderful opportunity to introduce new readers to science fiction romance in general, because we have such a broad range of story types included. It’s also that anthology I was dreaming of, to allow people to try one of my adventures. I think science fiction romance is on the cusp of “being discovered” by the wider reading audience and I hope our boxed set may help lead the way. Additionally, it was a chance to work closely with ten ladies I enjoy, admire and respect. I always look for the fun in anything I undertake and we’ve had a blast figuring out the best title for the set, picking cover art, debating promo, learning things from each other…I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful collaboration on putting together a collection of stories.
Now I hope the readers will be able to say the same of their experience with our individual and exciting science fiction romances!
Personally I enjoy science fiction romance because the entire galaxy is available for the adventure. You have strong heroines and the men (or aliens or cyborgs) who love them, working together to survive in high stakes situations where literally anything might happen. But – at least with my novels – there’s always the hard-earned Happily Ever After to be savored.
My next SFR, also set in the future universe of The Sectors where Escape From Zulaire is located, will be Mission to Mahjundar, releasing later in August.
Amazon best-seller Veronica Scott is a two-time recipient of the SFR Galaxy Award and has written a number of science-fiction and paranormal romances. Her latest science fiction romance release is Escape From Zulaire (included in this box set), which recently received the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award for Paranormal and Futuristic Romance. She is a regular contributor to the USA Today HEA blog and writes the SciFi Encounters column. You can find out more about her and her books at http://veronicascott.wordpress.com/
