Australian Speculative Fiction Blog Carnival

Wow are you in for a treat! Or a spam-a-thon, which ever way you wish to view it… *snickers* I am taking over the reins of the Australian Speculative Fiction Blog Carnival for March, run by the A Writer Goes On A Journey arm of the Australian Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers Association.  From the 15th of February to the 15th of March I will be collecting all the snippets I can find regarding the Speculative Fiction world in Australia, with a focus on the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genres (because, let’s face it, that is where my niche is these days). At the end I will be collating and summarising a final version for the blog carnival. I do have to warn you, I plan to extend this over to late March, as the Australian Romance Reader’s Conference  is taking place on the 25th – 27th of March and that is big news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy calendars. These won't be included in the official summary for the blog carnival, as someone else will be taking care of March 16th and onwards, but I think, with the lead up to ARRC there will probably be a lot of news to share.

I will be finding a lot of these links, blog posts, news items, etc., on twitter,  so if you think I am missing something whilst in my little bubble world, please let me know! I will be updating this frequently, although I am not sure yet if I will post updates weekly or bi-weekly. Please stick around and see. At the end of the month, I will be summarising it, and the summary will be posted on the ASFFWA website.

You can follow these Blog Carnival posts using the “ASFFWA” tag below.

I will be filing this under the following categories:
  • Blogs of Interest
  • Author Spotlight
  • Links of Interest
  • News Stories
  • Advice
  • Media
  • ARRC
  • Competitions 
  • Book Signings
  • Gossip

Thank you Nicole! I have to admit I was perving on your entry last year for inspiration yesterday! ;-p

Marg, I think I need to go and raid your Aussie blogger directory! I follow so many blogs that I have forgotten which ones are based in Australia LOL

I am using this as a good excuse to get back into the blogging world. I have been on hiatus for about six months, and in a way I feel I have lost touch with my roots. I have thousands of blogs to check on my poor neglected rss reader... I rely on twitter to find out gossip and news about my genres these days.

Oh sounds good, have we got a hashtag for twitter, I am tweeting a lot of links that might fit into this area and could safe you some searching by appending a tag.
