...and now, for your reading pleasure... 
an excerpt from Indian Summer by Emily Cale!
(excerpt from Chapter One...)
     Watching cars, motorcycles, and rickshaws zip past her, Cara sat on the stoop of the guesthouse where she was staying. Each time a car would slow down, her hand would grasp the handle of her field bag, hoping that the car belonged to the diver who was to take her to the research office. So far, they had all been slowing down just to stop and stare at her. Colleagues had told her that people would stop to look at her pale skin, but she had thought they were exaggerating. After only a few brief moments outside, it was obvious it hadn't been a joke.
     Every so often, one of the bright yellow rickshaws would stop and offer her a ride, the man inside speaking a language she couldn't understand and motioning to the back of the cart situated atop a motorbike. Most left after she shook her head no, but a few would persist, calling her ma'am and saying please, the only English they seemed to know. If the morning hadn't already been so bad, she might have had more patience for thier antics, but at a quarter to seven, she already felt like the entire day had been a failure.

You can buy your own copy of the story at Amazon!
