Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy - June Blog Tour

CSSF Blog Tour

This month's CSFF blog tour extravaganza is all about Sharon Hinck’s The Restorer, first book in the Sword of Lyric sequence, a sort of Christian mom-lit sword and sourcery epic adventure tale. I guess I'm not exactly the target demographic then? Well, in the hope that her publishers will one day realise that what the world wants is a Christian dad-lit space opera and give me a call... (Is dad-lit even a thing? Or am I creating genres again? Or maybe the new blog title I was thinking about?)

Anyway, you know what I like about Sharon Hinck? She's got the CSFF blog tourists listed on a sidebar on her blog in reverse alphabetical order. So I'm about third in the list, instead of waaaaaay down the bottom. I don't know why I didn't think of that, really.

Oh, wait, yes I do. It's because the tour's master list is alphabetical, and it's too much like hard work to fiddle with it myself. So here it is in conventional order (though I suggest you start somewhere in the J's, because they get neglected whichever way up you look at it!)

Too funny, Steve! And I'm an "H" so I'm right in the middle either way ...

I hope you read Sharon's book regardless of the intended audience - it's really for all readers who love fantasy epics. And her husband has a big role to play, too!

Yeah, I'm not sure when they're goign to get their ducks in a row with this whole Dad-Lit Space Opera, but it's bound to happen sooner or later, right?

No worries, Steve. I didn't fit the target demographic either.

God Bless,
Daniel I Weaver

I'm totally stuck either way, with the initials "J.J." Thanks for the plug!

I'm interested to see your thoughts. I disagree with HRH - the demographics do matter here. Anyway - on with the tour!

They tried Lad Lit for a very short while. Dad lit makes more sense! I still think fantasy lovers will "get" The Restorer even with a homemaker-mom as the protag. What do guys have against homemaker-moms?


Rebecca LuElla Miller said...

Oh, yeah, I forgot. After I check the blogs that linked to mine in the post, I also start somewhere in the middle or end of the list. Hahah--it's probably the poor A's and B's that are neglected.

Argh, I wish folks would stop calling it Mom Lit. It's NOT!!!

It's Women's Fiction Alternate Reality Fantasy. So there.

I still wuvs you.

Mir--hypertechnical, I know
