Hi, @Pam M-K and @peninka! I write sci-fi/horror (zombies) and young adult urban fantasy. Most of my fiction is on the dark side, but I always find the light within a story eventually. :)

I wonder how we start a group for speculative fiction?

Hi Pam, Rhonda, peninka,
I write paranormal romance which varies from light to dark. I love steampunk, too! Nice meet other authors who like these genres, too.

This is great, I would love to start a group for this. I love historical novels, and thrillers. A splash of Sherlock Holmes, but that is just not what I write. I also have a secret love for Space Opera (done well) but do not tell anyone.

That would be fantastic! I definitely need a group of friends writing the same genres as I.

Hi, all! Since I didn't get a response from Leslie, I sent her a private message to see if she would set up a spec fic group for us. I'm not sure all the notices are going out like they should. I'm signed up for email notices, but haven't been getting them.

I'm not sure how to do this. It keeps having me reply to my post. Thanks for setup. I joined and posted a discussion. I selected comment and it used my post to reply. Thanks for the setup. Still feeling my way around.

Hi all
I did set up a group. You can ask to join and Rhonda or I can add you. Need to find my information about how you can make it uniquely yours.
:)
I will do that tomorrow.
Thanks!
