Authors Who Write Love Among the Stars #scifi #romance

Hello, I'm Pippa Jay, author of SciFi and supernatural stories with a romantic soul. And this post is going to be a bit of a cheat. When this month's topic came up - talking about another author we love - I ran into a road block. How can I possibly pick just one?!
Another problem - the only UK author I read and love who writes romance is currently on a publishing hiatus, so quite a few of her books are unavailable or soon to be. What to do? Well, while I might not have a local author to talk about, I decided to go for authors who write in the same galaxy as me, even if one far, far away. :P At a push, I've managed to limit myself to five hopefully new to you authors in my favourite genre of SciFi romance, and who wrote some of my favourite books (I'm sorry - I'm biased!). But if I still can't convert you to SFR, that's not the only genre most of them write...

CE Kilgore:
An author without genre, dabbling in Romance, LGBTQ, Sci-Fi and beyond. Left my heart in Texas but found a home in West Virginia. GW2 Addict.
Why I love them: I adore the Corwint Central Agent Files series for being well written space opera with fully fleshed characters and lush with settings, descriptions, action and emotion. Plus she has androids - my favourite!
Favourite book: Promise the Stars (Corwint Central Agent Files #5).

Erica Hayes:
Urban fantasy/paranormal/sci-fi author, reader, watcher. Author of the Shadowfae Chronicles, the Seven Signs, Dragonfly and the Sapphire City superhero series.
Why I love them: A gritty action packed superhero series with a conflicted superheroine, a super tense romance, and the darker side of having superpowers.
Favourite book: Scarred (Sapphire City #2)

Cathy Pegau
Author of the Charlotte Brody historical mystery series and award-winning . Well-behaved women seldom make history. Or the future. She/her.
Why I love them: Cathy writes SFR full of emotion, tension and conflict, and particularly f/f, a hard to find subgenre, with spirited go get 'em women. It also inspired me to try my own hand at f/f, though it isn't published yet.
Favourite book: Rulebreaker

Why I love them: far future scifi romance with strong yet broken heroes and feisty heroines, full of adventure, conflict, spaceships, and smexiness.
Favourite book: Inherit the Stars (The Inherited Stars series #1)

All these stories sound great! I loved your story 'Keir". Looks like i'll need to pick one of these up to try. Right now I'm reading "Spark Rising" and I just finished "The Mind's Eye", both of which I think you recommended on another blog post. Have a great weekend!

Pippa Jay said...

Thanks. Oh, Spark Rising is awesome! One of my fave dystopias, but I was trying to highlight some different ones today.

Judith Ashley said...

Wow, Pippa --- these look (covers) and sound (your perspective) great!!! Thank you so much for sharing your take on SFR stories that captured your heart and mind!
