Gender Bias in SF Conversation

My alterego was invited to participate in a conversation about gender bias in the SF/F publishing industry and what to do about it. The conversation is archived here: Please check it out and join in the conversation (there are a lot more interesting and articulate people than me participating.)

Also, check out the YouTube video promoting the mega-author signing we had last night in Woodbury: The signing, btw, was actually a great deal of fun, not because I signed a lot of books but because it's always so cool to hang out with other awesome romance authors.

Wow! What a wonderful response! I agree with you totally about gender bias. I did not know Andre Norton was a woman for years after I read her first book! I believe she truly pioneered women in the SF/F genre, but had to use a male name to do so. Also, I am finding more and more SF/F books in what I consider the Romance section of book stores. It is like they don't know what to do with a woman SF/F writer so they lump all of the paranormal writers into Romance. Silly booksellers!
