Whenever I see the word “portal” I think of a gateway to another time or dimension. How about you? Or do you think of a portal as a doorway? In the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, I didn’t get the big, black obelisk that kept appearing. It wasn’t until I read Arthur C. Clark’s novelization that I understood it was a portal to another universe.

There’s another meaning for the word Portals. It’s a book. Actually, a book in four volumes. The subtitle is: Gateway to the Worlds of Science Fiction Romance.

Writers are readers and we have the same problem you do. With all the books being published each day, how do you choose what to read next? Forty science fiction romance authors are making it easier for you. We (yes, me too) put a first chapter from our books into a free book called Portals. In each volume, you can read the beginning of ten books plus a little about why the author wrote it. If you like the first chapter, you can click on buy link and—hurray!—you can grab that book and continue reading. Is that cool or what?

There’s more. Portals has its own blog. http://sfrportals.blogspot.com/2016/05/welcome.html

  1. Sometimes when I hear the word Portal, I think of the video game. The cake is a lie! LOL

    1. I don't play video games (well, not since the 1980s LOL). I'll have to ask my grandson about the cake reference. :)
