Things are shaking and moving behind the scenes with the Massachusetts Science Fiction & Fantasy Authors. In a little over a week, we’ve been amazed at the interest from the community. Our daily numbers have been high and the authors getting involved are energetic and full of spunk. We like spunk.
While the members section of the website continues to grow, we are growing our resources as well. We hope to make the website a spot for both seasoned veterans and those new to the world of science fiction and fantasy writing. In the last week we’ve had some great conversations with authors who have released their latest novels and others who are preparing to release their first. There hasn’t been a slow moment yet.
We are hosting our member’s first Cover Contest at MASFFA. We want to celebrate these great covers, give members some exposure, and provide bragging rights to the first winner of a MASFFA contest. The deadline for submission is July 30th and is open to science fiction & fantasy authors in New England who have (or plan to) release their book in 2017. You can find more information in the member’s section of the website.
The authors are also currently working toward their first group promotion. It’ll be a chance to see works from New England authors and get an idea of what each person writes. It’ll be the perfect way for readers to discover new authors with no risk.
We’d love to connect with authors and our readers. If you haven’t already, like our page on Facebook and if you’re a local author, join our Facebook group. Let us know in the comments, what are you excited to see from MASFFA?
