Is 'Lost Dogs and Monsters' feminist sci-fi just because 80% of the main characters are women? Nah. is it feminist sci-fi because the women are geneticists, assassins, and half-dog knife-fighters? Probably not. Just because most of the characters are strong women doesn't make it a feminist book. But it's damn good and it's free through monday, 3.25



Lost Dogs and Monsters (the kaiju queen)

22nd century science fiction, featuring rogue geneticists, thumbed canines, and giant monsters made to rampage. Distilled, novel-length prose from the author of 'Under a Vulgar Sun'.

AD,

Welcome again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book![br][br]KBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :)) [br][br]A brief recap of our rules follows: [br][br]--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice). [br][br]--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here [br][br]--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information. [br][br]--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead. [br][br]--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KBoards Tips & FAQ. [br][br]All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules. [br][br]Thanks for being part of KBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions. [br][br]Betsy & Ann [br]Book Bazaar Moderators

felt a need to add this to the Amazon page:

AUTHOR'S NOTE (added May 4th, 2013): I'm proud of this story and these characters. With that said, I'd like (without any hint of apology) to make prospective readers aware that in this particular sci-fi adventure, 4 out of 5 characters are women and a couple of them happen to be lesbian or bi.
I firmly believe that characters, like people, are not defined by their gender or their sexuality. There's a couple of briefly depicted, hetero sex scenes in the book, that's it. And one same-sex kiss. Whatever; I wrote a couple of my characters gay/bi. They're three-dimensional characters that do good things and bad things and have virtues and flaws just like any of my hetero characters. Honestly, it's not a big deal and in a perfect world I wouldn't even have to mention it, but....
If a sci-fi novel that includes lots of women and some gay characters is a problem for you, then go and find yourself a book with predominately male, heterosexual characters. I promise you won't have any trouble finding it.
Really, I mean it. Go. Now. Git.
