Author Kaye Manro has launched a new, Earth-set sci-fi romance series called Soul-Love. The first novelette, ALMOST HOME: Nick and Krista Christmas, is now available.
Here’s the blurb:
It is unseasonably warm for mid-December as musician Nick Zelmenis and the love of his life, ballet dancer Krista McBaine shop for a Christmas tree. They take time to share their special Soul-Love and to spend quality time together before Nick maps out a trip to Ohio on his Yamaha. He is going to visit his ageing grandmother for several days. Krista will visit her parents in Vermont at the same time. The two plan to be back in Boston and share Christmas Eve with each other and with a few close friends. But things never go as planned. The unpredictable changing winter weather causes major problems. Nick must reluctantly tap into his psychic abilities so he can try to get back home to Krista before a mammoth snowstorm hits Boston and the entire northeast with a vengeance.
Book two, REMEMBER HIM YESTERDAY, will release in mid-2016. Visit Kaye Manro’s site for more details!
Outer Places compiled a list of 23 Science Fiction Books Being Adapted into TV Shows. Being an SF fan, I read the list. Unfortunately, only four of the books were written by women.

I’m betting perilously few of these shows, if they make it to television, will feature female protagonists. Ladies, don’t you just love getting a big “F-you” from the television industry? Feels even better after, oh, say, the thousandth time.
