Announcement: Sci-Fi Month Schedule

Sci-Fi Month 2013!

And here it finally is, the schedule for Sci-Fi Month, a celebration throughout the whole of November for all things science fiction! With fifty bloggers, twenty-five authors and three publishers taking part at the last count, I’m hoping that it is going to be a giant event. Here is what’s coming up for you in the next month – right now the links go directly to each blog’s homepage, but as the posts go up I’ll direct them to the specific post instead.

I’ll be tweeting about each post from the @SciFiMonth account, and you can raise awareness/promote your posts with the #RRSciFiMonth hashtag!

  2. Wow, so many interesting sounding posts! I love sci-fi, but haven’t read much in the last two years (there are just not enough good YA sci-fi out there, imo), so I’m really looking forward to this 🙂

  3. squee!!! I am SO excited! and thank you for all the work you put into this, 50 bloggers? holy cow that is amazing! every day I love the blogging community more!

    1. Yep! If you go on the Google doc for important info that I linked to in the email, or the Goodreads group, there are banners linked on there =)

    1. I know! I’m trying to get as many posts done before then as possible, so I can concentrate on commenting and promoting, but so far I still have 8 to go!
