Falling for #SpecFic: Untethered Realms / Wattpad Wednesdays: Reborn Chapter 23

You may write or read speculative (spec) fiction (fic) and not even know it. Speculative fiction dwells in the realms of the what if and encompasses genres such as science fiction, alternate history, fantasy, horror, and more.

I'm part of a great group of SpecFic authors over at Untethered Realms. And this month we're taking part in the A-Z Challenge. So you may find a new book or two to add to your reading list. Today is my day, and I have a teaser from Once upon a Nightmare: A Collection. Although I'd hoped to have the collection published by now, it's almost ready. The virus from doom--or it may just be a cold--has attacked me and slowed my progress in my goals.

So head on over to Untethered Realms!

 
Chapter Twenty-Three is here or start from the beginning here.

Sorry you're not feeling well, but your body is telling you to rest. I know that's hard to do. I have trouble with it too.

Feel better! Loved what you wrote about speculative fiction, so I added it to our blog. :D

I hope you feel better. I have a cold that is lingering and is giving me coughing fits right now. =(

I didn't realise I was writing spec fic at first! It encompasses a lot of genres. Hope you get better.

Sorry to hear about yet another physical challenge! At least it's a cold and not something more serious. I hope you feel better real soon. :)

Kick that virus to the curb! I'm a big fan of "What if?" stories.

Sandra Cox said...

Hope by today, you're all better.

Heather R. Holden said...

Aw, sorry about the cold! Those are never fun. Hope you've finally started to feel better!

Jay Noel said...

Get well soon!

I'm sure you'll get back on track with getting Once Upon a Nightmare out into the world.

Cortney Pearson said...

I didn't realize until I saw your blog, actually, that I was a spec fic writer as well! (So thank you. I've always wondered because I've never really *fit* into a single genre before and wasn't quite sure what to call myself other than a YA author!) Hope you feel better soon!!

Sandra Cox said...

Hope you're having a pleasant, productive Monday, Cherie.

Peaches D. Ledwidge said...

Hurry up and get better.

I'm starting to like speculative fiction.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I never figured out Wattpad. But that's not surprising...I still feel lost on Twitter.
