#RRSciFiMonth Chat No.1 [2017] co-hosted by @joriestory & @exo_books


Annual Science Fiction blogosphere event where book bloggers and readers unite to share their love, passion and joy of Science Fiction with everyone they know (as well as the general public) through their blogs, Twitter feeds, Instagram feeds & all other portals of social media - whilst the event is rooted in the content on the participants blogs.

This is a List generated by the high volume of recommendations which flew through the hour and forty minutes we proceeded to chat about #SpaceOpera on 18th November, 2017. This is the 5th #RRSciFiMonth, and although I've participated in each and every event which has been held since 2013, I count it as my '4th' as I'm a 4th Year Book Blogger as I was only 'live' on my blog a handful of months leading into the event itself, which is why I count the years a bit differently than the event organisers.

Each year, I try to do something 'new' with my participation - last year, I was able to compose a topic-specific Guest Post and this year, I decided to co-host two chats on Twitter to showcase two authors who were writing a format of story just shy of a novel: one is a novella (The Last Day of Captain Lincoln) which is chat was inspired by and the other was a short story (Just One Chance) within the (Iron Doves Charity Anthology) which inspired the second chat on 26th November, 2017.

These are the collective suggestions the participants of the chat disclosed as we were tweeting the convo which became one of the most loved additions to Sci Fi November this year.

NOTE: Certain authors were mentioned w/o a specific title of recommendation, which is why I searched for a title I felt might be one others would be interested in reading based on how the chat flowed.
