  1. Oh, wow! Have I got more books to try now! And another vote for In the Black. Love your descriptions.

  2. What a great list, Jo! Like Charlee, I have more books to try now too...

  3. Great line-up, Jo. Ohhh, a couple new-to-me's on this list, too.

  4. Congratulations to all the winners!

    The two-chapter excerpts in Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly (SFRQ) magazine are normally limited to three quarters however, as a special offer, authors whose books have won an SFR Galaxy Award can choose to advertise their book excerpts (only) in Issue 5 of SFRQ, no vetting necessary! See for details.

    Also, authors taking advantage of this offer will NOT have the "only two excerpts per calendar year" limit applied to them. But only for Issue 5. Let's get reading!

  5. Jo, I'm thrilled to be included in your awards list, so thank you. It's an honor to to be in the same arena as the other fine authors you've included.
