The Importance of Heroines
Greetings Familiar Friends,
As I will be in the process of doing a few polish edits for my new publisher and awaiting updates for the re-release of Gate of Souls from Sky Warrior Books, I decided that I will do a series on some of my favorite female characters in science fiction and fantasy. These amazing heroines will be from many genres: TV, film, comics, and novels. I will focus on a new favorite heroine each week. Heroic females are a mainstay of my writings. There are many different types of strong women in fantasy, and what makes them strong is not just kickboxing or that they carry swords. I will do an in depth review of these characters that I love and admire. These women are part of my inspiration. I hope they will become yours too.
I also dedicate these weekly heroic females profiles to my fellow geek girls in the world. You never get the recognition you deserve. I have always loved science fiction and fantasy. I read it. I write it. I love gaming. I love the imaginative artwork. It makes me happy. It is me. I am a geek girl and proud.
I will post the first of my tributes to the science fiction & fantasy heroic woman each Thursday starting October 16. So check out my Heroic Women in Speculative Fiction post each week for some inspiration, a new perspective, and a jolt of courage.
More later. Until then, read more fantasy!
