Cover Reveal: IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA by Anna Hackett

No, that is not Master Chief on my latest cover! I am super excited to share the cover for Book 2 of The Phoenix Adventures, IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA. This story has action, adventure, a treasure hunt for the derringer used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln and a hot romance…but Master Chief from the Halo games […]

Let the Adventure Begin: Release Day Contest for AT STAR’S END

The most famous treasure hunter of all time is of course, Indiana Jones. He’s raced across our screens in pursuit of treasure (and to save the day!) with his fedora, bullwhip and fear of snakes. I read a super fun fact about Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day: that R2D2 and C3PO appear […]

AT STAR’S END: Exclusive Excerpts

The countdown is on to the release of AT STAR’S END on March 31st! Today I’m excited to share the very first excerpts from the thrill ride of a space adventure. First lines: Dr. Eos Rai gripped the edge of her seat and gritted her teeth. The pilot of her hired minishuttle executed a dizzying […]

Sci-fi Romance Covers and Cover Reveal: AT STAR’S END

The other week, I read a fabulous article by Heather Massey (sci-fi romance advocate/author from The Galaxy Express) about sci-fi romance book covers over at the Heroes and Heartbreakers blog. She talks about some of the less-than-stellar covers she’s seen on sci-fi romance books. Books that are very good but the story isn’t at all […]

2013 Science Fiction Movie Roundup: What Rocked and What Sucked!

Do you know what awesome sci-fi movie (and accompanying TV series DVDs) resides on the International Space Station? Serenity! I love Joss Whedon’s Firefly and I think it’s pretty cool to imagine real-life astronauts kicking back watching Captain Mal and his gang on their adventures. I enjoyed Dianne’s post on SF in 2014. There are […]

Hyperloop: Simply Science Fiction

Who wants to be shot through a tube at 760 mph? This week, billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk (of Tesla and PayPal fame) unvieled his concept for futuristic transport: the Hyperloop. The Hyperloop will take you from San Francisco to LA in 30 mins. You’ll travel through a tube on a cushion of air. It’s faster […]

Chocolate and Space: Two of my favorite things

My edits are finished! It’s always such a great feeling for an author to put the final polish on a story and send it off, ready to head off into the world to hopefully thrill, excite and inspire readers. The story I just finished, DARKEST BEFORE DAWN, is for the upcoming Contact:IF anthology, INFINITE FUTURES. […]

May the Force be with you

Happy Belated Star Wars Day! May 4th for the uninitiated – May the Fourth be with you! I confess…I am a huge Star Wars fan–not quite as big as my verging-on-nerdy husband who has various Star Wars collectibles and knows every obscure SW fact and character name. He asked me to put in that he […]

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar – Coming 2014

“A heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Intrigued yet? Christopher Nolan, of Inception and Dark Knight fame, recently revealed that his next project is the sci-fi film, Interstellar (previously set to be directed by Steven Spielberg.)All we know so far is that Matthew McConaughey is set to star and the movie […]

10 Fun Space Tweets

I see the coolest things on Twitter. Things I probably would never have discovered otherwise. Some of it I could have probably done without (now it’s just like space junk floating around in my head taking up valuable space) but some of it is interesting and entertaining. Best of all, some of it is perfect […]
