About This Newsletter

A Science Fiction based romance features a love story which is inextricably linked with a science fiction plot and setting. The most basic definition of a romance novel is simply... a novel focused on a central love story. However, if you were to throw another element into the frey, like say Science fiction, then the sky is the limit to where you can take things.

Letter from the editor

Romance in Science Fiction is a pretty even split between the two genres. The romantic journey is set in a scientifically or technologically advanced environment. The science fiction elements and the romance elements of the story are equally important and the story would suffer if one was taken away. Romance gives the characters of Science Fiction more depth. Yet, romance brings us into the individual lives of the people; it lets us see how these grand plots disrupt and interrupt their lives, and how their love can keep them fighting against insurmountable odds. Romance makes us care about their futures, and thus our own.

Writing romance doesn't mean it has to take place in a real world setting, it can take place on other planets or in imaginary lands, or involve creatures such as vampires, werewolves, genies, ghosts, and pixies. One thing to be aware of is that the world building and science fiction elements usually aren't as strong as in typical science fiction, and the romance always comes first. In romantic fiction, the focus is generally on two characters, the ones who fall in love.

One thing to remember is to make sure you keep a balance of both Science fiction and Romance. Really immerse yourself within your world to bring out any technological advances if there are any. Show the love between your two main characters. Keep a consistent theme throughout, so you really draw your reader in.
