TOPIC #2

Kick Ass Heroines in Science Fiction & Fantasy posts

Inspired by the kinds of stories I want to read and the kind of stories I write, and encouraged by Geena Davis’ mission to change “female portrayals and gender stereotypes in children’s media and entertainment,” I’m requesting articles that feature Kick Ass heroines in science fiction and fantasy for adults and teens.

Check out previous posts on this blog to see what other guest bloggers have written.

Check out my articles on Kick Ass heroines here.

Who you are: You write science fiction and fantasy for adults or teens and feature a kick ass heroine* as your main character in your novels or short stories (not just as secondary characters, and not the villain). Your stories are available for sale. Both independent or traditionally published authors welcome.

*I’m specifically looking for kick ass heroines, who use their physical abilities, in addition to their smarts, to help them navigate the story.

Focus: A nonfiction post about Kick Ass Heroines in your work of fantasy/science fiction and the work of others. What are some characteristics of kick ass heroines? What are the challenges of a kick ass heroine? What is it like to write one?

Details: 500-750 words. Include a 35-50 word bio, your buy links, your book cover, and your picture.

Extras: You can do a giveaway/blog tour stop in coordination with your post.
