Spectrum of Speculative Fiction Contest!

One of the most rewarding aspects of being on WordPress has been interacting with fellow bloggers and joining forces with other writers.  There are so many talented authors out there, and if we join together, there’s no limit to what can be accomplished, especially in this Brave New World of e-book publishing.

Today’s post will be the first of two consecutive posts featuring other authors.  (On Monday, I’ll be conducting the first-ever interview on The Eye-Dancers site!)  It’s a lot of fun introducing you to them (or, re-introducing you to them, as the case may be, since you might already be a big fan of theirs!).  So, without further delay, I’d like to talk about a great blog hop/contest/giveaway that my friend and fellow speculative fiction author Tammy Salyer is a part of.

I am very grateful to Tammy for interviewing me on her own website about a month ago.  If you’d like to read that interview, please click here!  (I also encourage you to browse through her entire site, too.  It is chock-full of very interesting and insightful posts.)

Tammy just released the second novel in her Spectras Arise Trilogy, Contract of Betrayal, and is part of a great blog hop called the Spectrum of Speculative Fiction Contest.



I definitely encourage you to click on the link and take a look.  Tammy and twelve other speculative fiction writers are teaming together today through Sunday (March 8–March 10), offering all manner of fascinating reads for free, ranging from epic fantasy to military science fiction.  There is also a contest associated with the event, and you will have an opportunity to win a $20 Amazon gift card.  So, what are you waiting for?  Head over to Tammy’s site and check out the Spectrum of Speculative Fiction Contest.

Here is more information on Tammy’s new release, Contract of Betrayal . . .



“In a bid to free the settlers of Agate Beach from their dependence on picking at Admin scraps, Corps-deserter Aly Erikson’s crew is willing to make a few deals, even with the devil. When Aly learns her friends have deceived her, she has to decide which is stronger: her sense of having been betrayed or her allegiance to the rebel cause. After an old ally offers her a convenient escape to a new life, the decision should be easy. But when the Corps threatens to wipe out everything that matters to her, the only course of action left is the same one she’s taken for as long as she can remember—fighting back.”
–“Tammy Salyer is a speculative fiction writer who dabbles in many genres, often combining everything from horror to romance in one piece. Her debut novel, Contract of Defiance, a military science fiction adventure, was released to acclaim in 2012, and the follow-up, Contract of Betrayal, just came out in February 2013.

You can also read the latest in top not-so-secret mental detritus, including movie reviews and author interviews, from Tammy at her blog: http://tammysalyer.wordpress.com, or visit her on Twitter @TammySalyer, where she’s probably blathering about pro-cycling races or single-malt Scotch.

She hopes you enjoy reading her works and welcomes your reviews.”


Thanks so much for reading!  I hope you’ll take part in the Contest and enjoy some great new reading material!
