You know, once upon a time (sounds like the start of a fairy tale LOL) I used to only read historical romances, the odd contemporary romance, and horror. Nothing else.
I know the very first sci-fi romance I read - Johanna Lindsey's Warrior Woman. I thought it was so AWESOME (and still do). Then my next sci-fi romance venture was a Catherine Spangler book, and then an Anne Maxwell. I was hooked.
However, there weren't that many sci-fi romances that I could find, and at that time, the internet was something I had no idea of. Yes, sad truth, I only discovered the wide world of the net in 2000. But it has opened up so many horizons!
So many sci-fi authors, so many fantasy authors, so many paranormal authors. Romance, adventure - all in the realms of paranormal. I love it! I check out the websites, the authors, the books, read excerpts...I do the lot LOL.
And joining yahoo groups such as paranormalromance, romance with a bite, etc, has opened me up to authors I once would never have even thought of buying - Laurell K Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Saje Williams - just to name a few.
Cyberspace- it often hates me enough to cut me off, misplace my emails, make me go AWOL on here a couple of times - but my reading field has widened way beyond belief! What can I say - God bless the internet - even when I want to scream at it!
Try something different to read today - you'll be surprised - you just might be adding the next one to your automatic To Buy list!
