I have a guest post up on Anne E. Johnson's blog about the characters in Scattered Seasons. Please stop on by to check it out.
We made it to the end of April! Thanks to everyone who's stopped by this month to comment on this series. I hope my posts have convinced you that there are lots of wonderful women writers out there and hopefully introduced you to some you didn't know about.
Sarah Zettel has written science fiction, fantasy, and mystery. I personally am most familiar with her Vampire Chef series. The books are a novel twist on the vampire trope, and I hope she writes more books in that series. One of her other series is about fairies and Camelot; the first book, Dust Girl, is on my to-read list. It's about a biracial teen from the Dust Bowl who discovers she's part faerie. Her science fiction books appear to be stand-alones to me, but I could be wrong. She's earned the Philip K. Dick Award and the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Learn more about her and her work on her website, Wikipedia, and Amazon.
Finally, I can't resist ending with a sister Broad Universe member, Gail Z. Martin. I met her at WisCon last year when she read from Ice Forged, but I still don't know what the Z stands for. She also writes short stories and sometimes collaborates with her husband. Learn more about her and her work on her website, Wikipedia, and Amazon.
If you missed the previous posts in this series, don't worry; I've collected, re-organized, and added more posts into a single manuscript that will feature eighty-two authors. My plan is to release it in both eBook and paper formats, and I'm crazy enough to try to make it available for WisCon Memorial Day weekend. I figure WisCon will either be a very good market for a paper book (since everyone will be interested in women writers) or very poor (since everyone will be well-read already). Let's see how this does.
Did you enjoy this series? Did I miss one of your favorite authors? Please let me know in the comments.
