Cathy Pegau and Breaking Rules Sci-Fi Style

Liv Braxton's Felon Rule #1: Don't get emotionally involved. Smash-and-grab thieving doesn't lend itself to getting chummy with the victims, and Liv hasn't met anyone on the mining colony of Nevarro worth knowing, anyway. So it's easy to follow her Rules. Until her ex, Tonio, shows up with an invitation to join him on the job of a lifetime. Until Zia Talbot, the woman she's supposed to deceive, turns Liv's expectations upside down in a way no woman ever has. Until corporate secrets turn deadly. But to make things work with Zia, Liv has to do more than break her Rules, and the stakes are higher than just a broken heart… Please welcome Carina press author Cathy Pegau! I had a chance to read Rulebreaker and found it fast-paced, funny, and poignant . Even better, I've been lucky enough to get to know the author and pick her brain :) So let's hit it! What made you want to write sci-fi?    I've always loved the genre and have been

Scientist and Indie Author Linda Andrews!

Linda Andrews lives with her husband and three children in Phoenix, Arizona. When she announced to her family that her paranormal romance was to be published, her sister pronounced: "What else would she write? She’s never been normal." All kidding aside, writing has become a surprising passion. So just how did a scientist start to write paranormal romances? What other option is there when you’re married to romantic man and live in a haunted house? What got you interested in writing?  Reading got me interested in writing. Of course, I've always told stories, just ask my mother<G>. But one day, I challenged myself to actual put those stories onto paper. That was in 1997 and I know now that writing has become a bit of an addiction. Even if I wanted to, I don't think I could stop. Your author tagline is Real characters, skewed realities. Explain that a little . One of the weirdest compliments I get is from pe

Autumn Dawn, Indie Author and Inspiration

Please welcome indie author extraordinaire, Autumn Dawn ! She's got an inspirational story of early writing struggles to indie success . She's learned most of the ins and outs of self-publishing the hard way and today is sharing about: The challenges of being self-pubbed: tech support I love the freedom of being self-pubbed. My deadlines are my own and I make my own schedule. I’m self-driven, so it’s not a problem for me to stay on task. If anything, I have to schedule breaks to avoid burnout. I like doing covers and I’m good with formatting, uploading and managing my various ebook accounts. I can budget and hire proofreading and the occasional cover artist, and I’m capable of doing my own website. There are some cons. Edits aren’t fun and they take time, as does blogging. Also, if someone has to deal with tech support or troubleshoot, it’s me. Yesterday I spent an hour and twenty-five minutes on line with tech support about my new cell. I was prepared for the

(See also books one and two ) And a couple of characters even make it out of the compound, but, Keanu wants to know, it is just a glitch in the Matrix? All this and more for a measly 99 cents. Check it out at Amazon and Smashwords . And don't forget to enter the contest by October 6th!
