As a blogger-member of the SFR Brigade, my mission, and I have decided to accept it (no apologies for trope mixing) is to promote science fiction romance in general, and today, the Midsummer Blog Hop in particular.
Isn’t it funny that there are LOTS of Winter Solstice stories, and not so many Summer Solstice stories? In the dead of winter, we’re all huddled around the campfire (metaphorically speaking), with plenty of time to tell stories.
In the height of summer, we’re too busy running around to sit and tell stories. There is one very famous mid-summer story. It’s a classic. But not, unfortunately, science fiction romance.
Just because I can’t find an appropriate midsummer-themed science fiction romance doesn’t mean it isn’t worthy of celebrating. After all, each new planet that an SFR writer creates is going to have its very own midsummer solstice. They aren’t all going to be on June 23.
Let’s just celebrate the one in our little corner of the galaxy with a giveaway, shall we? In addition to the Grand Prizes listed below, I will be giving away a US$10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card to one commenter chosen at random from the folks who participate here at Reading Reality.
On Friday 22nd June (Pacific Time) the SFR Brigade will be holding its first ever Blog Hop to celebrate Midsummer. 36 fabulous science fiction romance authors will be telling you mystical or scientific stories related to the event, and they’ll each be giving away a prize – books, gift cards, swag bags…and lots more!
Plus there’s TWO GRAND PRIZES!
1st Prize – a Kindle Touch or Nook Touch
2nd Prize -a library of science fiction romance titles from over 20 authors (these will be mostly ebooks with one print anthology), and an Anabanana Gift Card.
All you need to do to enter is pop along to the blogs listed below and comment on as many as you want (only ONE comment per site will count as an entry). Each time you comment at a stop, you’ll earn one entry into the grand prize – so the more sites you visit, the greater your chances of winning. The winners will be drawn at random on the 24th June and announced on this site. The list of participating authors can be found below this post. Spread the news!
