Julie Czerneda discusses Clan Chronicles plus there’s a Giveaway(s)!

Behind the Scenes of the “Clan Chronicles”, Take 2: The Process — A Guest Post By Julie Czerneda, with Giveaway(s)!

In a fabulous guest post, multi-award winning Canadian author and former Natcon GoH, Julie E Czerneda, discusses the writing process for her nine-book speculative fiction series, the CLAN CHRONICLES. Topics include research, character development, and managing continuity across so extensive a series. For lovers of SF and/or Julie’s writing, there are also not one, but two giveaways: the first (which is fully international), is for Ms Czerneda’s new-out title, To Guard Against The Dark (in hardcover, with a companion mass-market paperback, This Gulf of Time and Stars). The second is for the entire nine-book series but is US/Canada only. For both the piece on writing process and the giveaway, click here.

Years in the making Anton and Nina imaged what the future would be like. Will it be a post-apocalyptic survival or, a future where everybody wears the same thing and live in peace with robots in a bubble city.

Either way we want to take photos of it, gather evidence and travel there.

Photonflux is the place where possible future will be planned, discussed and changed.

The headquarters offers the revolutionary fluxbun, a fried dough filled with various flavours in a casual setting. For World UFO Day your filling will be in the hands of our creative chef.

However if you do not wish to be pleasantly surprised you can pick from our menu.

The bar host craft beer, single barrel whiskies, Kombucha and organic wines and six barrel soda.

The objective is to attract like-minded people who support creativity, the idea of Scifi and appreciate the art of making art.

Anton Sounes (a Sounes Photo) has his photography studio on the second floor and are planning to capture all those who wish to be captured. Be creative and join in.

Dress up or come as you are.

Limited parking available for space ships.
