The Silent Chapter One

The Silent – Chapter One

  RELEASING JULY 27th Newsletter subscribers received a first look at chapter one a week ago. Are you a subscriber yet?      The Silent Chapter One Chiang Mai, Thailand Kyra stepped off the airplane, the loaded carry-on bag heavy on her shoulder. Sirius had told her what to expect, but she’d been wary to leave Europe without bringing most of her belongings. She didn’t own much, but what she’d kept over the years was precious to her. A lock of her mother’s hair and a book she’d found in her meager belongings. A picture of her and Kostas. Another picture Ava had sent her from Istanbul with all the scribes and singers there. A locket. None of these were things she was willing to risk to the vagaries of checked baggage. It was her first time out of Europe. Her first time on a long international flight. Her first time […]

Extended #TeaserTuesday: THE SILENT #IrinChronicles

It’s been a while since I posted a teaser for THE SILENT on the blog here. Don’t forget! Preorders for THE SILENT are up and available on iBooks, B&N, and Kobo. And Amazon readers can sign up for my newsletter to get release day links.

Herbs, pink salts, and flower petals turned the bathroom into something far closer to one of the fancy spas that he’d seen in Chiang Mai. “This is wonderful.” Leo […]

Cover Reveal: THE SILENT Irin Chronicles Book Five

I’m so happy to reveal the cover for the new Irin Chronicles book, The Silent, which will be out July 28th! I love this cover. And I love this book! Here’s the synopsis: They are called kareshta, the silent ones. But the silent are waking. Kyra has lived her life in the shadow of a powerful Grigori brother. She’s ignored her own desires for the good of her family. But an unexpected request from Thailand sends her on a mission that could change her life and alter the fate of free Grigori all over the world. Sons of the Fallen hidden in the mountains of Thailand have adapted an ancient human magic for their own purposes. Will this practice bring peace or lead to even greater danger for the Irin race? A simple diplomatic mission sends Leo to Bangkok, but he didn’t expect to see a familiar face in surveillance […]

The looming asteroid has been called off. For now.

Wanted to post a quick update about what’s been going on in the last week. Most of you probably caught from my blatant and somewhat overwhelming self promotion… That The Staff and the Blade is now available for pre-order! Wait, you didn’t get that? Too much? But really, promotion makes me itch. It’s a necessary evil, but it’s not something I can ever see myself enjoying much. Mostly, this week, I’ve been writing. And boy! Has that felt nice. I mean, slightly mental… But nice. That’s my desk up there. ^^^Actually, that’s a picture of my dining room table because the madness outgrew the desk, so I had to move to the dining room table. (The toilet paper is because I ran out of Kleenex.) As you can see, planning and plotting this book has been complicated. Actually, my editor and I decided that this book is really more like a […]

A word about my book prices.

I’m feeling nervous prior to the cover reveal of The Staff and the Blade tomorrow. Not because of the cover. I love the cover. But because I am releasing my most expensive book ever. Now, to those of you who are accustomed to traditionally published books, $6.99 (USD) will probably not seem that high to you. That’s on the low end for a new release, as a matter fact. But for those in indie world like myself, that’s a pretty hefty price tag. via GIPHY When I started out publishing, the standard novel-length book price for self-publishers was $2.99. That was what I listed A Hidden Fire at. But lots of people said that 99 cents was the only way to sell books. Or just give it all away! You just want reviews and to get your name out, right?

Going back to the beginning: The Staff & the Blade

The synopsis for the book is now available! As is a preview of the prologue of the first book, Dreams. The Pinterest board for the Irin Chronicles is here if you want to check out setting and character inspiration. Warning: Looooong blog post ahead. The Staff & the Blade is the next novel in the Irin Chronicles. As I’ve mentioned other places, this story will be Damien and Sari’s. As I’ve also mentioned, it’s giving me headaches. WHY is it giving me headaches, you may ask? Well. It is a universally acknowledged truth (at least by me) that when you’re writing a fantasy series, the first book is slow-going. Any time you have to build a fictional world, you’re going to have to plan. Some of that planning will happen before you ever start writing, but a lot of that planning will happen as you write because you often don’t know something […]

Official Release Day: THE SINGER, Irin Chronicles Book Two

“Passionate, spellbinding, and heartbreaking — “The Singer” is all this and so much more. Hunter is at the top of her game, drawing you into a story of love, loss, bravery, and redemption. If you loved “The Scribe,” you will absolutely adore this sequel.” —COLLEEN VANDERLINDEN, author of the Hidden series NOW AVAILABLE The second book in the Irin Chronicles THE SINGER “Haunting, mysterious and passionate, THE SINGER will seduce you at the first page and knock you breathless by the last one. In THE SINGER, a grief-stricken Ava will discover more about her power and extraordinary heritage, while a man reborn with no memory races to find her before celestial outcasts and angelic assassins do. Fans of THE SCRIBE get ready to lock and load as Elizabeth Hunter takes you on one hell of a ride in THE SINGER.” —GRACE DRAVEN, author of Master of Crows   “Hunter has […]

A New Teaser from THE SINGER: Irin Chronicles Book Two

For those of you following my self-publishing series, I was totally fail on the last post this week, so I do apologize for that. For the rest of you who are looking forward to THE SINGER (coming out on May 6th!) I have a treat for you. This is a very juicy (somewhat maddening?) teaser from Chapter Five, an excerpt from a longer scene with Rhys and Malachi. Hope you guys enjoy and have a great weekend! I’m cutting out early tomorrow to go to the Coachella Valley Music Festival with some friends, so you can look forward to lots of new writing, because we all know I thrive on the tunes. And speaking of tunes, here’s one from the writing soundtrack to THE SINGER. “Hold On” by Sarah McLachlan is one of my favorite songs. It’s a song about loss and love. About confusion and holding on when things […]
