Dignity by Eva Caye,
a science fiction romance.
Dignity (Book One in the To Be Sinclair series)
by Eva Caye:

Why does Emperor Victor Sinclair fall madly in love with Lady Felicia Sorensen?  She is a High Royal lady scientist in a heavily patriarchal society, and the Emperor has only dated socialites who see him as an icon and a prize.  Felicia's intellect and capacity to see him as a man with more than sexual needs instantly inspires Victor to want to make her his Empress, for he needs true love and support, not a lady who will be a burden upon his time and energy.

Although he entices her with all the resources at his command, from sexual stimulation and outrageously expensive gowns to promising she can 'write her own job description', Felicia cautiously learns the differences between love and manipulation.  And, after an interplanetary invasion and being censured by a ducal panel, all due to one of her inventions, she must choose between toughing out the extreme social and political pressures of a high elevation, and pursuing her scientific achievements. Victor finds a way for Felicia to do them both!

Author Quiz Interviews Eva Caye...

AQ:     Do you ever feel yourself becoming quite emotional when writing a particularly intense scene, and is there a specific passage in particular where this was the case?
Eva:     I don’t get emotional at first.  I write the actions in the rough draft, but when I do rewrites, I put myself into the head of the character and ‘feel’ their emotions, then I click my way through thesaurus entries to pick exactly the right words I (they) feel.  At that point, I can get pretty emotional.  I most often get emotional when selecting the last line of the book.  For some reason, writing (even reading!) the last line makes me cry!

Wally Runnels, author of The In-Ko-Pah Spirit

Wally Runnels is the author of The In-Ko-Pah Spirit, a paranormal novella available for Kindle from Amazon:

The In-Ko-Pah Spirit by Wally Runnels

A hired killer is paid to track down a rebellious member of a Mexicali drug cartel. The search takes place in The In-Ko-Pah Mountains, an isolated region on the Mexican/American Border, and leads to a confrontation with a sinister presence.

An introduction from Wally Runnels...
I’m an ex advertising creative and the intuitive process that writing requires is very exciting.

Creation and invention is a big part of the writing process. Logic is needed to balance and suggest to the reader that what they are reading is possible. Even though we all know it isn’t, especially when addressing paranormal events.

The writer must find ways to make a seamless bridge between reality and the supernatural to make a story more frightening.

I get deep into gnarly characters that are interesting to read but not someone you’d invite home to dinner.

If I had to sum up The In-Ko-Pah Spirit, I’d say it was weird, scary and adventurous.

An interview with Chandler McGrew, author of Crossroads...

What are you working on now and what projects and ideas do you have lined up next?
I just published my first digital book for Kindle, Crossroads, and I’m currently working on converting my first published novel, Cold Heart into digital format. Over the next year or so I hope to get all my backlist uploaded so that a whole new world of readers can enjoy them and I can continue to make a living. And of course I’m always writing. Right now I’m working on a Steam Punk series.

If you were to write a novel outside your usual genre, which genre would you like to experiment with and why?
Well this falls back to my last sentence. For years I wrote (and still do write) paranormal suspense thrillers. But a couple of years ago my agent, Peter Rubie of Fine Print Literary Management, suggested that I do something with all the reading I’ve done over the years on Winston Churchill. Everything that can be written about the man has been written, however, so I decided instead to write a novel about a Churchill-like character who is caught up not in the Industrial Revolution but a magical revolution from nature magic to technomagic. That led me to a backstory of how the empire came about and I began a prequel series I liken to a cross between Shogun and Waterworld.
