My topic? Why you need to fall in love with Sci-fi Romance.
"FREEDOM!" No. It's not Mel Gibson in "Braveheart." It's me, P. J. Dean, writer of SFR/PNR and the occasional historical. Now that I have gotten your attention, listen up. For writers and readers of SFR/PNR, freedom is the keyword, or nowadays is it the safe word? Hee, Hee. But I digress. Anyhoo, if one has been called to pen SFR/PNR, this time in the subgenre is the most free it has ever been for authors. Especially if you write for a small press or self-publish. The sky is the limit as far as what one's imagination can dream up, and what one can put out there. An author has no boundaries in creating a SFR/PNR tale. The stories run from sweet to heat, with all manner of characters, with plot lines from static to multi-layered. My sole concern is that some faceless panel somewhere will institute boring "routine industry standards" (as in other subgenres) and kill all the fun and originality. Until then (Deity forbid), writers, keep milking the teat of singular inspiration.
Psst! Psst! Readers of SFR/PNR. I hope you realize that you are truly blessed to be alive and able to read this subgenre during this huge shift in creative expression and how it is presented. Never before in publishing has the variety of stories been so varied, abundant and available. Appreciate it. Savor it. Bask in it. Explore outside your comfort zone. There is a writer out there waiting for you to discover their talent. And while you are at it, look up my SFR series, THE FELIG CHRONICLES which has 4 books so far and has a cast of diverse characters you've NEVER seen before. In fact the first book in my series is part of this event's 3rd prize package.
