I sent an email about my book - an alternate history WWII thriller - sort of a "the truth behind what the government told us happened in April 1945." Launch date should be around the 10th at the latest. Thanks for the link!

Today's feature is an Author Interview with J.A.Cipriano

http://www.indiespecfic.blogspot.com/2014/10/author-interview-ja-cipriano.html

And... I just wanted to clarify Guest Posts, because we would love to have more of them!

The Guest Post is designed for authors to promote books that arent new releases. A Guest Post is any topic thats Spec Fic related, however it makes sense to build the post around a published book, so you can include the cover, blurb, and buy links for that book in the Guest Post.

If you're interested in submitting a Guest Post, please send your stuff to Jessica:)

Today's featured new release is Once Upon a Time at the End of the World by KB's own S. Elliot Brandis, so check it out.

We're always open for submissions, though Heidi is away at Indie Recon and won't be able to respond at once.

What is speculative fiction?

We use this quote from kboard author William D. Richards to define a big umbrella: an all-encompassing genre created to describe stories of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and other stories that have an element of "What if..." in them. A story in speculative fiction is one that adds an element of the unreal, or asks, what would become of our society if history took a different direction at some important event? Fiction with a little something extra thrown in.
[/quote]

Great! I've been struggling a bit with The Deadliners and Avoidables, but they both come under this umbrella. :)

So... I was out-of-town last week. Went to Indie Recon in Sandy, Utah, and made a road trip out of it. It is possible my email was hacked in Butte, Montana! But I think it's all squared away now. If you sent me an email between Sunday and this morning, I might not have gotten it. Vanessa, my dates got all screwed up on the road. I had you scheduled for today, but didn't get to update till this morning, so it will be posted next Monday, the 20th. I'm also hoping to get some posts up about Indie Recon.

It was not a Spec Fic showcase but there were many Spec Fic authors there.

Hello everyone,

So psyched that there's this group! I've been lurking at the fringes, absorbing your plasma energies.

I thought I should introduce myself. I'm brand new. Shiny new. Don't even know how to add a profile picture yet. (BTW, how DO you do that?) I write space opera - Star Trek meets Babylon 5 meets Battlestar Galactica. And maybe with a dash of Firefly.

I've only ever published a few short stories under different pen names to dip my little toe in the self-pub waters. Was thrilled that anyone bothered to buy my stories and now am looking forward to finally publishing a series of space opera novels. I spent most of last year learning how to complete a novel I started during Nano 2013 and realised that I got me a universe going. I'm planning to work on Episode 2 during Nano 2014. If all things go well, I hope to release my first novel (yay!) in December in time for the Christmas reason. 

So compared to all of you, I am reaaally new at this! ;)

Can I still participate though? I love interviewing authors, and since my novel is coming out in December, I hope to introduce my book too. Where do I start?

Hi Tai and welcome to KBoards. If you haven't checked out the speculative fiction high five circle yet, go ahead and do so.

If you would like to be interviewed at the Speculative Fiction Showcase and/or submit your book as a new release spotlight, the submission info and whom to contact is here.

You cover looks great and I'm always happy to see another space opera writer here.
