MORALITY is live!

The end is here -- MORALITY is the finale of the To Be Sinclair series.... 190,800 words of relentless science, sex, politics, and female empowerment!

Princess Grace Encino-Sinclair can handle relentless duties, using her scientific knowledge and consummate social skills to support everyone in the Imperial Family. Her real struggle is to have a nice, normal private life, quite difficult to achieve since she has been trained in Grandmother’s stelluric science and is constantly followed by Sentinels. As she handles one mind-boggling near-disaster after another, with objectivity but also with heart, she can’t seem to find the right man, one who understands her duties to the Imperial Family come first, one who will support her great destiny instead of his own. 

Stuck in her perceived limitations, she meets the magnificent Carlo, and all her dreams seem to come true. Suddenly, the most unthinkable assassination of all occurs, focused on Grace and Carlo; will this tear the Imperial Family apart? When Grace stumbles over long-embedded corruption and must work with the stargate scientists to remedy the situation, she suddenly finds herself the most highly trusted person in the Empire, the power behind the Imperial throne.... 

Discover the power of ladies as the backbone of Demesne society in this novel of social intrigues, ethics, and justice, as Princess Grace proves to the Emperor she will go beyond the call of duty for any member of the Imperial Family! 

And the usual disclosure statement:

This science fiction romance is the final book of the eight-part To Be Sinclair series. The saga continues with NOBILITY and ends with MORALITY, which detail the romances and political struggles of the future Emperor and the power behind the throne. Several scenes describe sexually explicit behavior. 

You can find Morality at these awesome retailers:

Amazon B&N iTunes Smashwords OmniLit AllRomance Payhip and (soon) CreateSpace for print-on-demand.

(Edited in) And I just started a To Be Sinclair Facebook page! To Be Sinclair universe

I have two prequels on the horizon -- Enter the Goddess, about the early days of colonization of Corona Segundus, and Undying Dawn, about the colonization of Sinclair Demesne.  Both novels are well advanced, so I hope to have them done in 2014.  I keep fiddling with book covers, which you will see on my Amazon Author Page -- suggestions there would be most welcome, and you are always welcome to leave a review!

I hope you've enjoyed the To Be Sinclair series as much as I've enjoyed writing it.  Please tell all your friends!

P. S.  The Easter egg is really special!

What Makes Me Happy

In an attempt to abolish depression, I'm going to write a list of things that make me happy. I intend to add to the list often, hopefully until I am healed forever....

I love petting my doggies!  They are shedding like crazy, now, and they detest getting brushed, but they love having the Mommy love on them.  So I pet them and clean up the piles of fur later.

I love writing!  I'll get online to check Facebook, Twitter, G+ if I have the time, but inevitably I find myself opening up a document to write something down.  Maybe it's my 'Brainstorms' doc or my 'Books to Write' doc, or my 'Sh*t to Get Done' list or my shopping list, but if I think of it, I write it down immediately so I don't forget it forever.

I love peddlers malls!  All the old, groovy stuff they don't make right anymore, like some of the authentic old Pyrex that does not blow up like the new Chinese formulation.  I got an old desk lamp from the 60's the other day -- still works, takes one of those long tensor-type bulbs.  I'd buy any pre-60's tool than anything on the market today!

I love to eat!  Unfortunately, I have no patience with cooking, and I must avoid letting my diabetes get out of control, but otherwise I adore a fabulous meal in a nice restaurant.  I do have one problem, though -- you know that 'principle' where the first bite or two contains the maximum amount of pleasure?  Yeah, that doesn't work for me.  I get just as much pleasure out of the last bite as the first one.

I love to help people!  At my most cynical, I complain that the 'takers' have propagandized how honorable it is for the 'givers' to give so they have more to take.  But if a family member, friend, or acquaintance needs help, and I can actually offer something, I'm first in line, whether it's editing a resume or talking someone out of suicide.  I only wish I had the $$ to help people with more than just writing stuff, mental health, or spiritual understandings.

I love reading spiritual books, but I especially love reading mind science books.  It's amazing how much information came from ancient India, too!  The real problem is that 5000 years ago, Indian mystics knew exactly what was going on, but the words they used had soooo many meanings, almost no one can interpret it correctly.  So I read and I ponder the siddhes, or watch videos on YouTube about the Shaolin temples and training, or yogis in Tibet.  And I wonder...!

SFR Brigade Presents:  a snippet from MORALITY, Book Eight of the To Be Sinclair series by Eva Caye

The Sentinels exchanged glances, and Major Pozner cleared his throat. “After listening to the actual words he said to you, it was decided Lord Grossman needed to learn the true value of slander and the harm it causes.”

Suddenly and deliriously happy to think someone had put Van in his place, Grace sat up straight, eager to hear the rest. “Go on.”

“Since Front Wing is so sinuous and you left him so precipitously in the basement game room, he did not know how to get back to the ballroom. By the time he found a Sentinel to ask, the Sentinel had been instructed to have him take a tunnel shortcut.” He paused.

Frowning in confusion, Grace shook her head. “How would that have shamed him?”

Captain Sherlach bit his lips together as Major Pozner replied. “It was the tunnel the groundskeepers take to the lily pond. Since he had no code-card to re-enter the tunnel and was not wearing his overcoat, he naturally headed straight for the front lights of the Palace without looking where he was stepping.

“When he plunged through the ice, the ticklebacks detected the, ah, strongest heat source. By the time he had removed his pants, his blood-curdling screams had drawn a number of watchmen from the lines of ground cars parked before the Front Wing.”

She felt like laughing at the vision, but the women servants did not seem amused. “Who made the decision to misdirect him?”

“Ah, my apologies, Your Highness. I have not been privy to that information.”
