Character Inspiration: INK

Helloooooooo, everyone. So, it’s a funny thing, this writing thing. Sometimes, my imaginary friends (those would be my book characters) are really vivid to me. Sometimes I can see them in mah brain. Sometimes, I can hear their voice. Sometimes I just have a really vivid impression of their character and personality, but the physical description is fuzzy. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from years of writing and publishing, it is this: most readers like visuals! SO! I try to make visuals. This also makes it easier for my marketing assistant to do cool graphics and fun ads and stuff. So to celebrate the launch of INK and the fictional town of Metlin, California, I created this fun “casting” for the book. Now, is everyone here exactly how I see them in my head? No, because we’re limited by stock photography and stuff. But these are pretty close! […]

#TeaserTuesday: A look at INK

I shared this with my newsletter subscribers last week, but I wanted to share it with you today. This is a quick peek of INK, my new contemporary romance that will be coming out on March 13th! It’s now available for preorder at all major retailers.   ➜Amazon ➜Nook ➜iBooks ➜Kobo ➜Smashwords ➜Add to Goodreads: ➜Pinterest Board:     From INK… Ox kept looking in her eyes, and Emmie was starting to feel scrutinized. “I’m fine.” “You sure that’s all it is?” he asked. “You just need a breather?” “I told you I’m fine.” “I’m sorry about Ginger. I should have just ignored her.” He was examining her face like he was searching for something. “I fucked up. Did she ruin it?” Emmie shook her head. “Of course not. Everyone’s out there having a great time. Daisy’s food rocks. We haven’t run out of […]

New #contemporaryromance INK: A Love Story on 7th and Main

Happy New Year! I decided to start 2018 with a brand new pre-order releasing March 13. INK is a story I outlined a few years ago that got put on the back burner because other responsibilities intruded. But I pulled it out last year, finally wrote it, and now I have my first new contemporary romance in six years! “But Elizabeth, you write fantasy, not contemporary.” Common misconception, my friends! Though I’ll always consider myself a fantasy writer first, I actually got started writing contemporary romance. (And I do have one stand-alone CR already published, The Genius and the Muse.) The idea for this book, which will probably be a series of stand-alones, is for me to have a bit of a break from the heavy world-building of the Irin Chronicles and Elemental Legacy. INK is an entertaining romp of small town, opposites-attract romance combined with a heaping helping of […]

The ups and downs of audiobooks.

As many of you know, I’ve been working for the last year on completing self-publishing on the some of my books for audio. This has been while also writing and publishing six other pieces of fiction. Confession time: I hate producing my own audiobooks. I don’t hate audiobooks! Though they’re not my favorite format for reading fiction, I absolutely love listening to non-fiction, especially for memoir and comedy, and I’ve slowly crept into appreciating short fiction in audio format. My son adores audiobooks and has a ton of them on his iPod in lots of genres, but mostly sci-fi and fantasy. And he’s the one that really got me started on appreciating the format. In fact, I have some audiobook recs here. But producing my own books? Nope. Hate it. Absolutely hate it. ALL of this has to do with me being the author of the thing being produced. Several things […]

Books, what books? We’re talking coffee.

Okay, okay, yes. So I’m horrible about blogging and haven’t done it in a while. But good news! I have a bunch of stuff coming out soon. The biggest is MIDNIGHT LABYRINTH, which is out in just a couple days! And then we have Amid the Winter Snow next month. Some new audiobooks in the Elemental Legacy series coming soon, and more. But today I want to talk coffee. As many of you know, my fiancé is Ethiopian (we met on my research trip for A Stone-Kissed Sea) and I love coffee very much. I mean him. I love HIM very much. And also coffee. I used to think I made good coffee, and I kind of do. I made good American coffee. But once you’ve been to the birthplace of coffee, you realize a couple things. American coffee (even strong coffee) is coffee-flavored-water. Milk is not necessary in coffee, […]
