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.

Thanks for the information, Cora! Yes, the cover is great, isn't it? My cover artist, Yoly, rocks - but I'm sure lots of people here know that. ;)

Today's post at the Speculative Fiction Showcase is our regular weekly link round-up.

Great job, as always. It boggles my mind how you're able to keep touch with so many sources. Awesome work. :)

Hi Cora, I would very much like to feature my debut novel, Mindguard on the Speculative Fiction Showcase. I'm running a countdown deal from Octobr 26th to November 2nd, where it will be available for 0.99$ (as opposed to 3.99$) and I would love to get some buzz around it for the countdown. Is it still possible to submit it to Heidi Garrette? Are you still open to submissions?

Yes, we're open for submissions. The info is here: http://indiespecfic.blogspot.de/p/authors.html

The new release spotlight is for books published in the past 30 days. If your book is significantly over that line, you could always submit a guest post about some aspect of your book.

Thank you for answering.  :) My book was published on September 2nd. Would it still be a fit? It's still relatively new, especially if you look at the sales  ;D  If not I will look at the other options.

Hi Andrei, we would love to feature you on the showcase, but it's been 45 days since the release date. I understand your perspective. Could you submit a Guest Post? It doesn't need to be long, but something centered around your book, would be the best way to showcase it now that the book is past its 30 day mark.

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.
