Future Love now available – SFR Brigade Showcase

SFR Brigade showcase

Each month, the Science Fiction Romance Brigade showcases members.  The Brigade is a group of authors who write — what else? — science fiction and romance. Its members include many of the biggest names in the field.

And then there’s me.

Future Love is Live

Future love bWhat better way to participate in the showcase than to celebrate a new release?

As of June 30, Future Love is available at the special introductory price of just 99c.

Future Love is my fifteenth published book. That includes science fiction, contemporary romance, sci fi romance, and programming how-to’s.

But this slender tome is special. It’s my first-ever collection of short stories. Some have been previously published; others are virgin tails tales exposed to reader eyes for the first time.

In the future, love will get even tougher . . .

  • Travel-Future LoveTo Cry in Zero G – A spaceman wins the woman of his dreams. Too late.
  • Devil, Devil – A stranded time-traveler yearns for the love he abandoned in his past.
  • Thimbleriggers – A crook invents a new form of pornography but it teaches him about love. Not sex.
  • Audition at Sexsmith Station – A woman crosses the galaxy for revenge. But revenge isn’t as simple as she expected.
  • Love and Death in a Teriyaki Cathedral – A man pursues his beloved beyond death, but finds only the evil in his own heart.

About the Cover

In designing this cover, I had three goals:
Future love b

  1. Catch the eye even in thumbnail size. Hence the high-contrast colors and simple design, with few elements.
  2. Tell readers the book is science fiction. Hence the star field background, just in case the word ‘future’ isn’t enough (duh).
  3. Tell readers that while these stories revolve around love and have uplifting endings, not all are typical romances. Others explore unrequited love; a husband’s love for his dead wife; or high-tech love that transcends generations. Hence the teary eyes that nonetheless stare straight ahead, boldly and with determination.

The eyes are an original watercolor titled Yearning, by Linda Pajunen, a fine young artist from Finland. It was great working with you, Linda.

What next?

Step One (optional):  Get Future Love for yourself at the introductory price of just 99c. Then get additional copies for your friends, family, and acquaintances. They’ll thank you, even if they’re merely being polite.

Step Two (mandatory!):  Visit the other great writers in the SFR Brigade Showcase.

  1. I preordered future love, so it magically appeared in my Kindle.Your posts on Wewriwa hooked me. I’m looking forward to reading ti.

    1. Cara, Cara. We don’t call it MAGIC when dealing with science fiction; it’s TECHNOLOGY.

      Hope you enjoy the book!

  2. “And then there’s me.” LOL, Ed ~ I’ll sit by you in that seemingly lonely corner 😉 Great post and congrats on the publication of your fifteenth book!

    1. I’m not so sure the corner is lonely. More like crowded.

  3. The cover reminds me of the Simak books I read as a teen. *feels oddly nostalgic*

    1. I haven’t thought about Clifford Simak in ages, though I used to read his books, too. The only one I recall offhand is City.
