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.

But now the SFR Brigade brings you the Portals - four free volumes of first chapters from a vast spectrum of stories falling under the science fiction romance umbrella. Volume one releases TODAY, featuring 10 authors whose stories come under the medium heat level. 

"Introducing Portals.
This isn't an anthology, it's a transport to whisk you away to a host of exciting SFR worlds. We know you're going to enjoy the trip, and you're sure to find many amazing adventures you'll want to get lost in."

Visit the Portals website HERE to find out more, and sign up to the newsletter to be among the first to find out when the next volume releases. In the meantime, you can get the first volume by clicking any of the retail links under the cover below.

Status Update
My June project, Revived, and Reunion are still in edits. Eish. However, the June project is going well and both myself and my editor Dani are pleased with the new additions so far. I just need to give it a bit more emotional umph.
The Bones of the Sea re-released at online retailers yesterday, finally including Amazon, and is completely and utterly FREE! Well, mostly. I can only vouch for Amazon US and Amazon UK. If it isn't free at the other Amazon sites I apologize, but there's nothing I can do about it. Amazon doesn't allow publishers to set books to free, and even telling them of a lower price will only work if the competing retailer is in the right region ie if you want it free in Germany, you'll have to find the links to rival German retailers who have it for free and let Amazon know, but I can't even guarantee that'll work. Please go ahead and complain to Amazon.
However, you can get the mobi/Kindle version for free from Omnilit or Smashwords, or get the epub version at Kobo or B&N and use an online converter or Calibre to convert it to mobi. Bones will also be included as a bonus story in the back of my next release, which will hopefully be in the next couple of months.

Chook Update
Our six remaining girls are now secure in their new, stronger run and are enjoying the new facilities like a pot of grass, bigger perches, and a tray of compost to dig through. They're still getting to enjoy the garden a little, though heavily supervised and with the lower section of the garden out of bounds. Effie and Kyru are fully recovered from the fox attack and just need to regrow their missing feathers. As for the fox...we've seen it once when it tried to dig a hole into the coop, but was thoroughly thwarted by the wire skirt surrounding it. There's a lot of construction work going on in neighbouring gardens, plus the recent burst of hot, sunny weather has meant more people out in their gardens too, which is probably putting off foxy somewhat as well. However, we had weeks of the chooks wandering loose in the garden with no trouble before the attack, so I reckon we'll see it again sometime with some cunning new plan to achieve a chicken dinner...
