Hello! I’m Jessica E. Subject, and I write Science Fiction Romance. Sounds like I’m in rehab, doesn’t it? Some days I feel like I should be, especially when I have characters talking to me in my head while my children are talking to me at the same time.
Anyway, science fiction romance is part of the broader genre of speculative fiction, which is a broad term for any fiction with supernatural, fantastical, or futuristic elements. BUT, it is also part of the romance genre, which leads to an extremely wide range of stories. There are space operas, steampunk, alien romances, abduction stories, invasion stories, futuristic tales on Earth, dystopian romances, first contact stories, prison colonies, colonization stories, clone stories, artificial intelligence stories, time travel… The list goes on and on. Some fall heavy on the sci-fi side with hard science facts and worlds so developed that the setting becomes the main character. Mine tend to fall at the opposite end of the spectrum, heavy on the romance, following the typical plot of any romance story. For me, it’s all about love conquering all.
As for the heat level, this can also vary. I’ve read many young adult, new adult, and sweet sci-fi romances. I’ve also read some erotic and erotica stories that included spanking and BDSM, leaving me ready to jump my husband or any sexy alien that happened to be nearby. 😉
It’s all about finding the right balance. There is plenty of stories in the genre to choose from no matter what your tastes.
There are many reasons why I write science fiction romance, least of all the idea that I can predict what the future will be like. The question I often ask myself is “What if…?” Thinking about the future and what lies beyond our world has always been something I’ve done. I’m curious as to what technologies will develop in the lifetimes of my children and future grandchildren. Look how far technology has come in our own years on Earth. And, I want to know what else exists in our universe. What is life like on other planets? To me, it’s not a matter of if there is life, because I already believe there is. I want to know how different or similar they are to us.
So, why not give a sci-fi romance a try?
