Why Sci-Fi Isn’t Just For Boys Anymore

When I was young, Sci-Fi was targeted at young boys, not girls. We could certainly check a book out from the library but wouldn’t we rather read Judy Blume? And then Harry Potter and other fantasy books came out and changed the way we look at YA and MG books.

So when I decided to write a book and I told my husband I was going to write about genetic mutation he was all for it, but so was my best girl friend. Why? Because my main character is a kick butt, take names kind of girl. She’s different from other characters you’ve met because she’s a cryptid. Yes you can google it. Not only is she a cryptid but she’s also a parahuman. I can’t give you too much information because then you won’t need to read Reveal, but I’ll tell you this, there’s nothing quite like her.

Sci-Fi used to be all aliens and spaceships, but now it includes romance, teens trying to live normal lives and various species. There’s a hook for the ladies now too. Whether they’re looking for adventure, romance, or just a new experience Sci-Fi is now for everyone. It’s written more accessibly with words you can google, or just know from reading. We have a better understanding of what could happen, so it’s more believable too and with that more relatable.

So ladies your chance to read Sci-Fi is now. Take the opportunity, trust me, it’s worth it.

I just want to thank Brina and Mark My Words Book Publicity for allowing me to be a part of the book tour. Thanks Brina for taking the time out to do this guest post for me.
