Once a month, the Science Fiction Romance Brigade’s showcase enables the brigade’s authors to highlight snippets from new works, WIPs, cover reveals or other fun things.
This month I want to do two things: 1) crow, and 2) advertise.
I attended last month’s InD’Scribe conference, run by InD’Tale Magazine, a good resource for indie and small-press authors. My science fiction romance, Escapee, was a finalist for a RONE award in the science fiction category. I’m happy to report that Escapee was awarded first runner up.
SFR Brigade’s own Hywela Lyn also won at the conference, so be sure to congratulate her!
The award plus Escapee‘s tagline tell you all you need to know: It’s The African Queen in outer space. Escapee translates the beloved movie to a dying moon, recently invaded.

For various reasons, I haven’t had a book come out in almost a year. The drought is about to end, though. Rescuing Prince Charming is set for release on December 4.
The cover hasn’t yet been revealed, so you’ll have to wait for the non-blackout visuals. But here’s the back cover blurb:
Dusty Johnson, a self-styled ordinary, everyday woman, responds with extraordinary heroism when saboteurs try to bomb the prototype of Earth’s first starship. Although she yearns to return to anonymity, that moment of courage propels her ever deeper into dangers that tear the scabs off her dark secrets—and thrusts her into the arms of the unattainable man of her dreams.
Reese Eaglesbrood, an alien prince, yearns to restore his tattered reputation by guiding the starship project to completion, but his fascination with the unassuming heroine threatens to undermine his fragile authority. Shunning Dusty is necessary, yet unthinkable—and when the saboteurs strike again, she is his only ally against Earth’s most elusive enemies.
Rescuing Prince Charming is available now for pre-sale, so hurry and order your copy before the Internet runs out of electrons.
