Soldiers of the Sun; by Jana Denardo—Guest Post and Giveaway

Thanks to Andrew for letting me talk about the novel, Soldiers of the Sun with you all. Technically it’s the third in the series, but it’s a stand alone and the first full-length story. Andrew asked me to talk about why I picked the 1930s. I have two big loves. One is urban fantasy and the other is history so I decided to marry them in this series. I had a great time writing and researching it. To me having inaccurate historical data is embarrassing and even with the best of intentions it sometimes happens. I’m thankful for the editors who caught a couple mistakes. I chose the 1930s because it was a time period I didn’t know that much …

The Homecoming; by J. Scott Coatsworth—Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway

Scott Coatsworth (Scott to most everyone) he is the driving force behind the Hoard’s effort to take over the world. 😉 In more layman’s term, the “Hoard” is the affectionate name for the authors in the Queer Sci-Fi group that Scott created and has shepherded along for some time. I was lucky to meet Scott at Rainbow Con in July and he is every bit as energetic and visionary as he appears on line.
