Each winner will have their choice of a gift card for either Nook, Kindle, All Romance or iBooks, plus they will win great eBooks from participating Sci-Fi Romance authors.

But, more on the April Fools For Love contest in a moment….


First, I’ve got a new release to tell you about and some FREE BOOKS to give away!

Amber-Cover400I’ve got a new release out, and it’s all about how love can make you do crazy things. The fact that it has some crash-landed aliens just makes it all the more fun. This short, sweet and lighthearted science fiction romance is the third book in my Celestial Seasons series.

All the books in the Celestial Seasons series deal with funny aliens and some of the wacky things they do to both hide who they are and try to find love. In book 1, Steve surprises Noelle with a real, sixteen foot Christmas tree, and is later referred to as ‘that guy with the really big tree’. In book 2, Garry gluttons himself on Rosa’s pies, risking gastrointestinal agony just so he has an excuse to go see her again. In book 3, Amber actually turns magenta as her heart falls hard for Kyle.

Book 1, Noelle In His Heart, is FREE and available here:

Side-Story-Brel-CoverV2-200x300

Sometimes, love can lead us to do foolish things that don’t always end well. In To Even Have Dreams, Brel is an android, and love is a new concept for him. Love leads him to make certain choices that ultimately lead him down a less than happy ending. It does have a silver lining, though. His experiences through love become the starting point for two lives that will eventually collide in a love that has the power to change the very universe.

Available FREE:

Heart’s Compass LGBT Romance Reading Challenge & Giveaway!

IT’S DONE! All four books in the post-apocalyptic, gay romance series, Heart’s Compass, have now been published!

HeartsCompassSlide

To celebrate, I’m issuing a CHALLENGE! (And, having a giveaway, too!)

The challenge is easy: Push your LGBT boundaries by reading 3 LGBT books this spring.

Are you a reader who only reads M/F romance? Or, have you read M/M (gay) romance, but not F/F (lesbian) romance? Or, have you read all of the above, but haven’t dipped your toes into transgender, genderqueer or non-binary fiction? I challenge you to change that!

I’m also challenging myself. I’ve read M/M romance (well, I should hope so, since I write it.) and genderqueer fiction, but I’ve never read a straight-up F/F romance. I think it’s time I changed that.


Here are the 3 books I’m going to read:

I decided to stick with Science Fiction Romance books for my 3 choices, because it’s my favorite genre. It was also hard to simply find 3 books that are both Science Fiction Romance and F/F.

DeepDeception JES-NGDY-300x450 WarGames

BONUS POINTS: I have also added a bonus challenge to my list, with a 4th book that is a transgender romance. It’s not sci-fi romance, but I couldn’t find a single sci-fi book, romance or otherwise, that dealt with transgender issues. If you know of any, please leave me a comment!

Spotlight: Ignite the Shadows (YA Sci-Fi UF) trailer and giveaway!

Ignite The Shadows by Ingrid Seymour
(Ignite The Shadows #1)

Coming April 23rd 2015
Young Adult Science Fiction / Urban Fantasy

About The Book
ItSSixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.

Marci feels possessed by what she perceives as shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she’s confronted by the leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and shows her the awful truth.

Half of the world’s population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind themselves to the human brain and replace the pathways for all thoughts and actions. The creatures then morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because the truth is worse: She’s infected.

Ignite The Shadows is available at:

Spotlight: Alliances, a space opera novel by S. Usher Evans

Alliances is book 2 in the  Razia space opera series by S. Usher Evans. Action, intrigue, double-lives, lies and betrayal are brought together in a well-balanced science fiction tale, and a world where conspiracy is a way of life.

About the Book

Lyssa Peate has found a tenuous balance between her double lives – the planet-discovering scientist and space pirate bounty hunter named Razia. No longer on probation, Razia still struggles to be thought of as more than a chocolate-fetching joke, and Lyssa can’t be truthful to those closest to her. But both lives are turned upside-down when feisty government investigator Lizbeth Carter shows up to capture the same pirate Razia is after.

Lizbeth’s not interested in taking Razia’s thunder; rather, she convinces the caustic bounty hunter to help solve a mystery. Somebody’s hiring pirates to target government ships, and there’s a money trail that doesn’t make any sense. From the desert planet of D-882 to the capital city on S-864, the investigation leads them deeper and deeper into a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the Universal Government – and to one of the most painful chapters in Lyssa’s past.

Preview from Chapter One:

The room was dark, with a single, dingy lamp hanging over a table where three men sat, each holding a hand of cards. They said little, except for the occasional grunt or movement to tap their grungy mini-computers to up their ante. The first sighed and rubbed the scruff around his chin. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a cigarette and a lighter. Continue reading
