  • Kameron Hurley: The Geek Feminist Revolution Arrives in Spain!
    Yesterday we finalized a deal with Lee Runas, the SFF imprint of Spanish publisher Alianza, for Spanish translation rights to The Geek Feminist Revolution.

  • Gail Carriger: Visual Inspiration for Authors: Pinterest Character Boards & Connecting with Readers
    I got into Pinterest in a big way last year, Gentle Reader, and yes I am aware of all the annoying things that keep people off Pinterest  ~ the closed and proprietary nature of the venue, the lack of organization and ability to cross pollinate, to name only a few. You know why I’m aware? Because those very things kept me off Pinterest for years. However, once I joined I found that as an author Pinterest is a genuinely ... read more

Here’s the blurb: Lexi Angelo has grown up helping her dad with his events business. She likes to stay behind the scenes, planning and organizing…until author Aidan Green ... read more
