Feeling stuck at home when you'd rather be in outer space?
Join our Space Opera is Still Queen online workshop! Learn what this genre is, how it's written, and how it impacts popular culture.
Based on her class for Seton Hill University's Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, Heidi Ruby Miller will show why publishers, including Dog Star Books, are still putting out the call for space opera amid Disney opening up two theme park lands devoted to Star Wars, the blockbusterdom of Guardians of the Galaxy, successful streaming series like The Expanse, and Amazon proving that readers will still devour alien empires and interplanetary sagas.
Attendees will receive a free eBook copy of Heidi Ruby Miller's novel Ambasadora: Marked By Light. The event will also include a reading by Miller from her other works in the Ambasadora universe.
To have a signed paperback copy of Ambasadora, Starrie, or Greenshift delivered to you via the US Postal Service simply order a copy at one of these links:
Ambasadora signed copy
Greenshift signed copy

You will have a chance to give instructions on how you want it personalized either when you order or live onscreen at the end of the workshop. Free shipping to all USA addresses.
