This is Publisher Week at Romance Lives Forever. Three publishers
will be featured, each during one special week. Those publishers are Boroughs Publishing Group in February,
Liquid Silver Books in June, and JMS Books LLC in September.
Lovers are like wildfire — given the right
fuel, they burn hot and out of control.

Spotlight on Submission Calls

We are looking for a
few good men, okay more than a few and they don’t have to be ‘good’ they have to
be hot, sexy, and looking for love. You know the type – the romance hero we know,
love, want to cuddle up with . . . or jump in bed with. Take a look at our open
sub calls and grab your pen and paper, typewriter, or keyboard and start writing,
because Liquid Silver Books is looking for romance authors!

The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors
Minimum Word Count:
24K
Liquid Silver Books
is looking for stories featuring protagonists whose jobs keep them out in the lonely
outdoors usually alone or with just a few co-workers or a small crew. These can
be first love or second chance stories.
We’re looking for a
main character who works as a ranch hand, cowboy, lumberjack, park ranger, Mountie,
lineman for a power company, semi trucker for outlying communities, terra former
on a remote planet, etc. People who drive/ride into the wilds to work covering lonely
stretches of road/ground in front of them. We want stories showing us how they meet
the love of their life or mate, and how they integrate them into their lives when
they may be gone for days, weeks, or months at a time. Do they take them with them
and have sex in some wonderful outdoor places? Do they leave them at home and when
they get back, they don’t “come up for air” for days at a time?
Big Beautiful Women
in Love

Big Beautiful Women
in Love

Minimum Word Count:
24K
Liquid Silver Books
is looking for stories featuring big beautiful women and the men who love them.
Is the heroine of your romance at least a size 14? Is she someone with a few self-doubts
or a few self-image issues who finds, and is ultimately adored by, a wonderful male?

Sexy, Sinful &
All Grown-up

Sexy, Sinful & All
Grown Up
Minimum Word Count:
24K
Liquid Silver Books
is looking for stories featuring protagonists who are 35+ years old. We want to
offer stories about finding love after 35. These can be first love or second chance
stories.
Have your central characters
spent most of the time getting their career started or business off the ground before
deciding they need to ‘get a life’? Was one or more of them a ‘wild child’ or out
‘sowing their oats’ and has decided it is finally time to grow up? Did it take a
while to get over that nasty divorce? Or has it just taken this long to find their
mate?

I Need a Hero

Minimum Word Count:
15K
I Need a Hero
Liquid Silver Books
is looking for stories that feature heroes. Whether these heroes are on the nightly
news, or unnoticed, or hidden as they go about their work, they all deserve that
one person who’s not only their perfect partner, but who also brings them a very
special “happily ever after.”
These stories’ protagonists
must be strong and capable, but should not be perfect – they

should feel real, complex,
with normal faults and problems, and they should learn important lessons about themselves
as they fight to overcome the odds. There can be strong secondary characters, but
the building relationship between the protagonists while they battle an intense
and gripping conflict or villain must be the main thrust of the story.

Silver Slippers

Minimum Word Count:
15K
Silver Slippers
Silver Slippers are
fantasies spun from the fairy tales we heard at our parents’ knee. Elves, Queens, giants,
gnomes, Fairy Godmothers…

goblins,
Princes, Princesses, evil Kings and

Have your own spin on
one of the Fairy Tale Classics? A naughty stepsister trying to steal your prince?
A seamstress who has a one-night stand with a nameless stranger? Perhaps a meddling
Godmother determined to help you find a mate?
We’re looking for tales
that make you laugh, make you sigh, and best of all, make you hot!

The fine print stuff:

Heat Levels: All
Relationships: All (M/F,
M/M, F/F, M/F/M, M/M/F, F/M/F, F/F/M, M/F/M/M, etc.)
Your story must be strong
and compelling, linking everything together, not just a series of sex scenes.
Your story must meet
or exceed minimum word counts.
Your story can take
place in any time – past, present, or future.
Your story can be any
romance genre or sub-genre.
Your story must end
with a HEA (Happily Ever After) or HFN (Happy For Now).
Your story can be a
single title or the beginning of a series.

Tagline: The cost of being Imperial

Brian, and Prince Christian must set aside their petty differences to support each
other through thick and thin. As they struggle to find compatible mates, security
issues come to the fore!
Lord Andrés Encino, for example. As honorable as a man can get,
he nevertheless represents true danger to Anne simply because he has a photographic
memory, and she is the principal heiress to Empress Felice Sinclair’s ultra-secret
stargate science. Anne sets aside her fears to pursue an intimate relationship with
the immensely talented designer, which means her Sentinel Lieutenant brother Brian
must also investigate all the Encino family secrets that could lead to security
breaches.
As Service Lieutenant Prince Christian Sinclair battles his own
insecurities, hoping to find a lady who could withstand the Imperial social scene,
his ship is called upon to investigate the sudden disappearance of the Stargate
Fleet, including Mother, Anne, and brother Josef. Their travails expand dramatically
as the Imperial Family copes with the consequences of the Crandon Stargate Fleet
Battle and the persistent attempts of the Atticans to either capture or destroy
all stargate scientists!
What is the cost of being Imperial, in isolation and friendship
and love? And how can they find partners willing to live with the security requirements
needed to maintain not only their own safety, but that of the Empire?

Interview

What is the most important thing you do for your career now,
as compared to when you first started writing?
I constantly research and edit. At first I just wanted to get
the major actions and dialogue down, but now I continuously edit for consistency,
grammar, and fleshing out the scenes with pertinent information, such as burn therapies.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
I never know where it will take me. Sometimes I feel like I am
accessing a portal to a parallel future dimension in which my characters live. I
spy upon them and let the visions gather until I have to write the scene. Then I
‘watch’ the scenes in my head and whisper to the characters, questions like, “What
are you feeling? Why did you do that?” In some respects, it’s a god-like power
of omniscience, but in other respects I cannot change things; they will act out
the scenes until I write what THEY do and think. I know the overall plot before
I start, but otherwise I am simply their scribe
What is your work ethic when it comes to writing?
Get it down, rewrite, explore every angle, put yourself in your
character’s position to understand him or her thoroughly, then research the hell
out of everything. And then send it to the beta readers, rewrite if they make significant
suggestions, send it to the editor, rewrite according to her suggestions, back to
the editor for a final check, and one final edit.
How do you cope with stress as an author?
Although I write all the time, it’s my passion so I suffer very
little stress, no matter how focused I get. Most of my stress comes from beating
myself up when I find another inconsistency I missed the first hundred times I edited!
I have wrist phones and shuttle ports, so when I find a wristphone or a shuttleport,
I go nuts until it is uploaded to Amazon or Smashwords one more time.
Do things your family or friends do ever end up in a book?
Absolutely! I include a ton of personal experiences, mostly my
own, but I do not hesitate to include others.
Which of your books would you recommend to someone who doesn’t
normally read your genre, and why?
I wrote Dignity for
many reasons, but overall I wanted it to be a book that would entice romance readers
into reading science fiction. I wanted to see more great female scientists in literature,
so naturally she had to fall in love and learn how to deal with emotions she’s never
experienced before!
What kind of books do you read when taking a break from your
own writing?
I usually read non-fiction, but I have so many interests it would
be hard to narrow them down. I would say my personal library has about 20% spiritual
or religious books, for I was a ‘seeker’ for many years.
What do you think is the future of traditional publishing?
Traditional publishing will always exist until every e-reader
can be charged with solar power and have books downloaded directly via satellite.
Many of my family members live where internet access is impossible without satellite
dishes.
Do you plan to branch out into other genres?
Absolutely. The To Be Sinclair series does not have ‘aliens’,
though there are life-forms on many planets, so I have some ‘alien contact’ synopses
in my Books to Write folder. I have about 25 items in my Working Files folder, at
least a third of which are non-fiction, though some will end up as articles, blog
posts, and short stories instead of books.
What was the proudest moment of your life so far?
My first five-star review, which I wrote about here: http://www.evacaye.com/my-first-five-star-review/.
Turning away from the lowest point in my life to become an obsessive author, and
then sending my first book to my first reviewer and getting a five-star review was
like winning an Oscar for a debut performance.
What do you like to do when you’re bored?
I’m never bored. There’s too much to do and learn! I suffer major
depressive disorder, which is characterized by real physical symptoms, like lack
of energy, inability to perceive your surroundings, I could go on and on. When I
have energy, I garden or clean or do something fun; when I have no energy, which
is the usual state of affairs, I write or do research online or crochet, just to
feel like I’m being productive.
If you were a color, what color would you be?
Indigo.
Please underline which statement is more like you:
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because
I do things as fast as possible.”
Eva Caye

Please complete the sentences

I love pizza with fresh veggies.
I’m always ready for a chat on Facebook.
When I’m alone, I am either reading, writing, or sleeping.
You’d never be able to tell, but I’m a pretty good tarot reader.
If I had a halo it would be shaped
like the headdress of Nefertiti
.
If I could travel in time, I’d save the Library of
Alexandria and see
what the future will be like in 1000 years
.
I can never stop reading spiritual books because I
believe miracles are simply a science we don’t understand yet, though a few people
have passed along some good ‘clues’ along the way
.

Interview

Tell us about your story’s
world. What is it like in this period or place?
This book is set in earth’s future when humans are uploading
their consciousness into androids so they can live forever. Most think it’s a wonderful
advancement, but Joe is afraid of losing his soul, the thing that makes him essentially
different and that differentiates him from the technology that surrounds him.
What inspired you to write
this book?
Reading “Alone Together” by Sherry Turkle who is a psychologist
working with robotics at M.I.T. She talks about how technology that is supposed
to bring humans together often ends up making us less human.
Which character in your
current book do you think readers will like the most? Why?
Destiny. She’s a naïve, innocent robot who accidentally becomes
sentient and falls in love with her roommate, Joe.
Why do you write?
It makes me happy to communicate ideas to others and to create
new worlds for us all to play in.
When you write, what things
do you want close at hand? (Coffee, water, chocolate… pictures of gorgeous hunks
for inspiration…?)
LOTS of coffee! Can never have enough!
When you’re not writing,
what would we find you doing?
Playing with my kids. They’re 2, 5 and 7 – really fun ages.
Are you a plotter, or
do you prefer to make it up on the spur of the moment?
Yep, I’m definitely a “fly by the seat of my pants” kinda girl.
A writing instructor once told me to let the characters go where they want to go
and do what they have to do. This has always worked for me.
Looking back at your first
book, what do you wish you had done differently?
I think I should have given my heroine more guts and spunk, but
you live and learn.
What’s your writing schedule
like?
Very random, frantic and completely disorganized.
Any advice for new authors?
Believe in yourself. Find others who share your passion and don’t
be afraid to share ideas with them.
When an idea hits you,
what do you do to capture it?
Lots of sticky notes on the bedside table.
Which of your books was
the hardest to write and why?
I think this one was. With science fiction, it’s very hard to
create an effective balance between action and world-building. The reader has to
have enough information not to get lost in the strange new world the writer has
created, but not too much that it gets in the way of the action.
What are you currently
reading for fun? Anything for research?
I love the new YA science fiction books. I just started reading
“Cinder” which I’m very much enjoying so far.
What’s the best gift you
ever received?
An Amazon gift card with a sufficient amount to buy my first
Kindle.
If you could time travel
what era would be your first stop?
Ooh – would have to go to earth’s future and hope we haven’t
made too much of a mess of things.
Do you believe in luck?
I’d like to say I believe in “Destiny” – no pun intended (well,
maybe …)
What kind of music do
you listen to while driving? Same question when writing?
When driving, I listen pretty exclusively to audiobooks. I can’t
listen to music when writing. I need quiet to focus.
Do you play any musical
instruments?
Piano (badly).
What’s your favorite movie?
I’m a sucker for a good old fashioned rom-com. Don’t know how
many times I’ve watched “When Harry Met Sally”.
Are you the eldest, middle,
baby, or only child?
Eldest.

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with my kids.
I’m always ready for a trip to the movies.
When I’m alone, I read, read, read.
You’d never be able to tell, but I was born in Australia.
If I had a halo it would be silver/blue.
If I could fly I’d circle the world.
I can never sleep because I have too many ideas going
around in my head.
