Tales from the SFR Brigade - Anthology Update! #SFRBAntho #scifirom #sfrb

So this morning I got an exciting update about the Tales from the SFR Brigade - an upcoming #FREE science fiction romance collection by seven stellar authors...and me. Lol. First up, there's been a slight change to the cover. Regretfully one of the original nine authors has withdrawn their story, and I'm sorry to see them leave. However, we now have the story order and the back of book blurb for the anthology. Here goes! *deep breath*

1. "Imprint" – Pippa Jay
2. "Allure" – Amy Laurens
3. "Nobody’s Present" – Marcella Burnard
4. "The Stranger" – Kyndra Hatch 
5. "Mission: Nam Selan" – Linnea Sinclair
6. "Prime Sensations" – Liana Brooks
7. "Envy’s Revenge" – Berinn Rae
8. "Whiskey and Starshine" – Erica Hayes

So how do I feel about being first in that line up? Thrilled and incredibly nervous. But you don't want to know about that. You want the blurb, right? Here you go.

Experience love and adventure among the stars in TALES FROM THE SFR BRIGADE, a free digital anthology of eight Science Fiction Romance stories.

* A space captain discovers the cyborg she loves just might be her greatest enemy.

* A mind-wiped prostitute risks all when she recruits a dangerous stranger to help her escape a terrible fate.

* A prisoner-of-war confronts the comrade who loved her, then left her for dead.

* A space-obsessed physics teacher is kidnapped by a far-too-charming alien.

* An apocalypse survivor battles the biomech-enhanced hunter who seeks to capture her.

* A young artist must choose between her comfortable life on Earth or a war-torn space colony with her beloved.

* A daring thief is on the run from the alien law man who is determined to bring her to justice.

* A widowed rebel leader tries to save the last remnants of humanity, one stranger at a time.

From Earth to the furthest reaches of the galaxy, explore the worlds of Science Fiction Romance with stories from Linnea Sinclair, Marcella Burnard, Erica Hayes, Liana Brooks, Pippa Jay, Berinn Rae, Amy Laurens, and Kyndra Hatch.
Squee! Full credit goes to Diane Dooley for drafting the back of book blurb (incidentally, Diane was also my editor on Imprint, and an absolute joy to work with!) so huge thanks to her! I'd also like to thank the SFR Brigade members for this project - 'Cali Hicks, Diane Dooley and Laurie Green. Kudos for your hard work on putting the anthology together! *salutes*

Plans are to offer the anthology on Amazon Kindle, B&N PubIt, Kobo, Sony, and Smashwords. We now have an expected release date of 14th July - Bastille Day! Stay tuned.
