Firesmith’s Speculative Fiction Newsletter Banner


My newsletter includes all manner of the following genres: science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, and horror. I will occasionally include “how-to” books (e.g., writing, publishing, marketing) for authors. I will also occasionally include science books if I feel they have a real potential of providing fodder for science fiction authors as well as mythology and medieval history if they could provide input to fantasy authors. I hold a contest each month. I typically contribute reviews of books I’ve read, book excerpts, character interviews, and current status of my writing. I am very much interested in hosting author and character interviews, book spotlights, and guest blog posts. If you want me to post a book spotlight or a character interview, I would appreciate an e-copy of your book so that I can read and review it on the blog. I also post my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
