The mysterious case of the missing royalty checks from Ellora’s Cave

September 15, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

EC logo

Three years ago Ellora’s Cave contracted Warriors’ Woman and I was thrilled. They went on to publish two more of my books. I loved my editor, thought their cover art was brilliant, and was very fond of the regular royalty checks.

Yesterday I deleted those covers from my website, which makes me want to sob.

I still adore those stories, but Ellora’s Cave isn’t paying me. I sent them formal notice requesting payment and the reversion of my rights. I received an automated response to both emails stating they’re overwhelmed with requests.

There’s plenty of speculation on what’s going on with Ellora’s Cave. I have no special insight into their corporate affairs, but not paying bills is a bad sign.

Please don’t buy my Ellora’s Cave titles. Warriors’ Woman, Warriors’ Wife and Simply Irresistible are being offered for sale on Ellora’s Cave’s website, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance, and other third part sites. It kills me to discourage sales, but since I’m not being paid, I don’t want the publisher benefiting from my blood, sweat and tears work.

Thank you for your support gentle readers!

Love,

Evanne

Sneak Peek at Demons’ Captive

September 9, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

Demons' Captive 500x750

Gunn felt like dragonshit for using their brothers’ death. Yet he’d do it again. A demon did what had to be done or he wasn’t worthy to call himself a male. He nudged his brother further away from the enemy. “Fight her. You can do this. I’ll help.”

He drew in a deep breath, inhaling her scent. Night blooming jasmine, need, and sweet-hot female, wrapped around his balls and squeezed tenderly.

He turned toward her without consciously willing it. The thin under garment was halfway undone exposing the plump edge of delicate breasts. Pale skin glowed with heat and life. The pulse of her heart was visible in the tracery of a blue vein. Every cell in his body yearned to possess her. Even the red rune warnings on her sternum struck him as pure erotic seduction.

“She’s a dragon shifter?” he asked, forcing the words past an all consuming need destroying his will and his control.

“Is that what her runes say?”

Gunn swallowed hard, fighting the mind-stealing lust. “The signs actually read dragon and fire. So yeah, dragon shifter is my guess.”

“Seems like a safe bet,” Diablo croaked.

“Latent?” Gunn hardly recognized the harsh rasp coming from his throat.

“I guess,” his brother said, adding a muttered, “Maybe she won’t change. Transition usually happens at puberty if it’s ever going to.”

“If I’m right about what she is then she’s just now entering adolescence.”

“Am I robbing the nest?” Diablo’s face lengthened and his eyes glinted with pain.

Gunn shrugged, took in his brother’s stricken expression and added, “Once sexual maturity begins, it goes fast.”

“She’s legally an adult, right?”

“Bloody dragons, you’re one stubborn male.”

Diablo gave a rusty chuckle. “Better watch your language. She might take offense.”

Gunn snorted, an occasional derogatory dragon curse was the least of their troubles. “Any mating sign?”

“No.”

Thank the Fire Goddess. “That’s good then.”

“Don’t count on it lasting. She hasn’t even regained consciousness. I don’t think I’ll have much choice.” Diablo gave him a sheepish smile. “If she’ll have me—I’m hers”

Gunn shook his head, trying to clear it. “She could reject you.”

“Yeah, she might send both of us packing.” Gloom darkened Diablo’s hard expression. “Can mating happen on one-sided? You know, like I want her and she doesn’t give a shit?”

The question chilled Gunn’s hot blood. If she rejected Diablo, he’d still fight to the death to claim her. And if the male felt half of the craving gripping him, then he couldn’t blame him.

“I don’t know,” he admitted, clinging to the thin comfort that so far, neither one of them exhibited mating sign. “Did you taste her?”

Demons’ Captive blurb

September 5, 2014 | Fan Friday

Demons' Captive 500x750

Here’s the blurb for Demons’ Captive:

One dangerous warrior woman plus two rogue demon males equals a love to threaten an empire. As a d’skeku trooper, Zaynah belongs to the emperor. Duty is everything. She’s sworn to take her own life if she fails to achieve her mission. When demon brothers rescue her from the wreckage of her spacecraft, she faces a heartbreaking choice between honoring her vows or followings her heart.

The rebel demons live to exact vengeance from the Emperor Prado in blood. The hated royal ordered the murder of their brothers, sparing them so they would take the blame for the heinous crime. The demons escaped by stowing away on a miner heading for Ranin Seven. The remote moon, rich in the duranium essential hyper-light travel provides the brothers with a powerbase to bring their enemy to his knees.
After capturing an imperial they have a new weapon–one of the emperor’s special pets, but a d’skeku assassin is a dangerous blade to wield. She might give them the vital edge they need to win or she might destroy their untested Pan-Galactic Alliance.

Zaynah is their mate and a latent dragon on the cusp of shifting and she’s about to become a whole lot more lethal.

Demons’ Captive is already available for pre-order on Amazon!

Fifty Shades of Grey

August 29, 2014 | Fan Girl Friday

Somehow I think I’m going to like the movie even better than the book…

Even if you’re not a huge fan of E.L. James, at the very least, isn’t it awesome to have romance centered stories dominating the media?

More on setting

August 26, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

Last week I talked about setting here. Today I’m using Zaynah’s first impression of Ranin Seven, the moon she’s suppose to infiltrate as an example.

The dark side of moon loomed into view—black, rocky, and barren.

Zaynah shivered imagining the minus ninety degrees Celsius temperature.

The sphere’s surface was so dark she couldn’t distinguish a single feature. There should be evidence of the massive duranium mining operation, a biosphere, and life signs. None of those were visible. The ship’s sensors registered no activity.

Without warning, a plume of fiery red sparks wafted from a column of lava rising close to fifty kilometers in length. The eruption disappeared as fast as it had risen, subsiding back into the remote moon’s surface. She blinked away tears from the searing brightness, wondering if she’d just hallucinated the phenomena.

Is there enough detail for you to visualize the scene?

On setting

August 22, 2014 | Fan Friday

writer at work a

Back when I began writing, setting was the physical location and time period where the story happened. The idea of setting as something more first sank in while reading Dwight Swain’s The Selling Writer, highly recommended by the way.

Here’s a snippet from the section that opened my mind to new possibilities:

“You need to remember three key points about the world in which your story takes place.

1. The reader has never been there
2. It’s a sensory world.
3. It’s a subjective world.”

Writing sci-fi adventures set in remote galaxies, I can’t assume my hapless readers have any concept of my story world. Therefore it’s my job to give them enough detail so the poor dears aren’t utterly lost.

This challenge is compounded by the need to eschew anything too mundane. Similes, colloquial expressions, and slang too reminiscent of Earth will pollute the alien setting. Fortunately decades of popular science fiction titles preceded my tales, giving readers a common vocabulary of hyper-light speed, par secs, blasters, and the like.

Do you have a favorite book where the setting is inseparable from the story?

Romancing the Book Reviewed Simply Irresistible

August 15, 2014 | Teaser Tuesday

simpleirresistible_msr

The gracious reviewe, Vitoria mentioned she’d like to see more these characters and the small town where much of the story happens. Sterling Falls is very much alive in my mind, so is the Crucible, the exclusive BDSM club featured in the book. At the moment my schedule is full, but I’d love a chance to write more of the Masters’ adventures as well as those of the the extended Sterling family.

Here’s a snippet from Victoria’s five star review:

“As Tiana and Liam get to know each other the danger increase as someone wants Tiana and Liam out of the way. The chemistry in and out of the bedroom is explosive. I loved that while Tiana was a submissive she was not willing to lay down and do whatever her Dom told her to. She had a brain on her shoulders and used it.” The entire review is available here.
