21016 Hey! So glad to see this group coming back to life. :) I'm here, I'm here!

21016 The SFR Brigade is celebrating its FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY with a Facebook HOUSE PARTY on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 from 12 Noon until 12 Midnight Eastern Daylight Time, so everyone around the globe has a chance to join in.

There will be approximately 40 participating authors who will be chatting about SFR, holding quizzes, games or contests, and many who will be giving away prizes. Everyone invited! Here's the link to the event:
21016 Released Sunday, February 22nd, the first installment of 2011 RWA Golden Heart Award(C) finalist Science Fiction Romance novel formerly known as "P2PC"--Inherit the Stars Part I: Flight--with a special price of .99!

This novel also won the 2009 SouthWest Writers Competition (Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror category) and the 2009 Utah RWA Heart of the West Contest (Paranormal category).

The e-novel is being released via Amazon in three parts, with each part well over a hundred pages in length. It is the first novel in a series that will include six complete novels and a number of novellas and short stories--The Inherited Stars Series.

Two giveaway drawings went live yesterday. You can view them here:

About Inherit the Stars:

PART I: FLIGHT -- Available now
To escape the merciless Ithian Alliance, Sair, a fugitive slave, makes a desperate deal with Drea Mennelsohn, captain of the prototype ship, Specter. But putting his life in the hands of a woman as mysterious as she is beguiling could turn out to be the biggest mistake of his life, especially when the price on his head begins to escalate.

PART II: THE NETWORK (Releases March 1st: available for pre-order on Amazon)
The daring captain seems to want far more from Sair than just payment for his passage. Though neither can deny the sizzling chemistry and growing bond between them, Sair must soon make an agonizing decision: maintain his own longed-for freedom or become a helpless pawn in an intergalactic coup against a ruthless superpower.

PART III: SACRIFICE (Releases March 1st: available for pre-order on Amazon)
As the truth behind Sair’s place in the galaxy and Drea’s unique existence are revealed, it becomes clear that they are vital to the success of the coup. But their part in ending the Ithian Alliance may come at a terrible price for Sair: the loss of the remarkable woman he has fallen in love with-and their chance to inherit the stars.
