Jessica (& Heidi & Cora)
 It's a great feeling being able to talk this way about something on which I've worked solitarily for more than a year. Made me really realize "wow, I've actually published it and I'm now talking about it on a speculative fiction blog"  :D That's a wonderful feeling.

AWESOME!!!! It's a great interview!!!!

Chanda Hahn's 4th book in her bestselling Unfortunate Fairy Tale series is featured as a new release on the showcase today. My husband and I had the opportunity to have dinner with her when I was at Indie Recon a few weeks ago. She is as funny and friendly as her books:)

Today at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, it's time for the weekly link round-up, a day early because Indie Speculative Fiction of the Month is posted tomorrow.

Jessica (& Heidi & Cora)

Thank you for featuring me  :) It's a great feeling being able to talk this way about something on which I've worked solitarily for more than a year. Made me really realize "wow, I've actually published it and I'm now talking about it on a speculative fiction blog"  :D That's a wonderful feeling.

It's a pleasure, Andrei! Sorry for not writing sooner (and more) but I've been at Bristolcon (yay!) and then had visitors. :)

Cora, I've been reading these - lots of fascinating stuff!

It always amazes me how you're able to find so many links in a week!

Today, we have a double punch of two posts at the Speculative Fiction Showcase:

Jessica shares a report about her visit to BristolCon and I post the "Indie Speculative Fiction of the Month" round-up for October.

Thank you very much, Cora! I'm sorry I scheduled my post for the same day - I made a booboo.  :-[

I...Finally...published...Book 2...
I feel like I've been through a war with this book.
I didn't make it for the "Indie Spec Fiction of the Month" for either September OR October, which makes me feel like crap.
Because I'm an idiot sometimes when it comes to reading long threads with lots of links, but I'm interested in participating in some of this, what should I do next?
Thank you in advance for putting up with my dullard ways...

Congratulations! And I feel your pain. With a new release, your first port of call is Heidi Garrett, and you can either send her a PM on here or else an email through the Spec Fic web-site - the link lives here: http://indiespecfic.blogspot.co.uk/p/authors.html

And Cora does the monthly round up at the end of the month. All our contact details can be found at that page. :)

No problem. Though we'd almost have had three posts in one day, because the weekly link round-up usually runs on Fridays, too, but then I noticed the clash and rescheduled it to Thursday.

Congrats on publishing The Scientist's Son, SB. I've already added it to the Indie Spec Fic of the Month round-up for November (I add the books throughout the month as I see them). You can also submit it as a featured new release to the Speculative Fiction Showcase and/or do an author interview, if you like. Submission info is here.

Today at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, we have a guest post by KB's own H.S. Stone who helpfully informs us about some signs that you're living in a dystopian society.

As always, we're happy about submissions. And if you've been waiting for me to reply to a mail, I've been ill these past few days.

Hey Cora,

I sent you an email about an interview or something about our Science Fiction book promotion service. I know you've been ill, so I won't hassle you to reply but just ask if you got it. Been having a few problems with our email in the last couple of days.

Yes. You (or someone can send the usual!) Cover jpg, blurb, excerpt, buy link(s), I guess no author bio since it's an anthology. If you want all authors included in the post you could, perhaps, send a list of their names and maybe website links.

Thank you very much for posting the link, Cora! Sorry to hear that you've not been well. I'm heads down in Nanowrimo at the moment, only surfacing occasionally for air!
