    SFR is very new to me, though I’ve read SF for decades. Is there a FAQ about the subgenre somewhere? I’m curious to try some of these books.

    One of the best places to go to learn about SFR is Heather Massey’s The Galaxy Express site or Rowena Cherry’s Alien Romances blog. I regularly blog about the genre, mostly about great heroines I enjoyed reading about. There are excerpts of my own SFR stories here as well. Welcome aboard!


    Cool blog template!

    Thank you very much. I am a web designer as well as a novelist and blogger. My web design company is called Amber Leaf Creative.

  56. I would love to win the SFR Holiday Blitz.

  57. I love this contest. And I have read several books in the SFR genre and want to read more. Please put my name in the hat.

  58. Not a US resident, so I can’t play with that part. Still, YEAH! for the contest and genre.

  59. So exciting Looking forward to hopefully getting my hands on a book or two seeing I just started to really get into this genre!!

    Happy Holidays Everyone!

  60. This is such a fun site and now a great contest featuring my favorite genre: SFR! Woot!

    Linnea Sinclair has said that she will ship overseas, so your name is in the hat!

  62. @Pauline Baird Jones:

    Glad you like my site. Please stop back later this week. After the drawing I will post another Danger Gal profile like I do each Friday.

  63. Sign me up for the giveaway! Great site!

  64. SFR Holiday Blitz

    I’d love to get my hands on these titles. I’m writing my first novel now and suspect it would be marketed as a science fiction romance. But I definitely need to research this genre and find some great, comparable novels.

    Thanks for this contest!

    Mary M-S.

  65. Great Contest! Is the artist who designed Danger Gal the same who does Gemma Halliday’s cover art?

  66. @Anne:

    The spy woman artwork was created by an artist named Aaltazar from iStock Photo. The site design and Danger Gal as a character are all mine. Thanks for your interest!

  67. I love this genre and am looking for new authors to read. Please add me to the growing list of entries.

  68. SFR Holiday Blitz!

    Thanks and Happy Holidays!
