"Hi Christopher. I agree with Anna about needing a little resolution. The piece sounded like a teaser chapter from a book as opposed to stand alone short story. Writing-wise, I’d save the apostrophes for either the slang words like…"

Sorry. No Blood Suckers.

It’s only natural that my novel, Curse Me Not, should fall into the genre that I read the most and like the best—paranormal romance. What’s unnatural, however, is the novel doesn’t involve any of the usual suspects found in the genre. Not a one. In fact, to some paranormal romance lovers, I may have committed a sacrilege. For…See More

Why I Care What You Think

I’d like to believe I’m a smart author in that I want to learn from my mistakes. That being said, I’m finding that my most important “teacher" is you, the reader. What you say about what you read matters—a lot. That’s where book reviews come in. By leaving feedback as to how you feel about what you just read on a book’s page at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, wherever, you help your fellow readers discover new authors to love, but you also let authors know what we did good or where we…See More

“69”-ing: Does It Satisfy?

On a blog I perused recently, I picked up an interesting tidbit. It’s a practice called “69-ing” and, no, it’s not that 69-ing!With all the books out there on the market these days, hip readers have a new way to test whether a prospective purchase is worth their money and interest. They flip the book open to page 69 and start reading. The theory is that by page 69 of any book, the reader should be happily caught up in the story. Thus, if you read page 69 of a fictional contender and like it,…See More

Choosing a Publisher: A Horror Story

When I first thought about writing a novel, I have to admit I did so because I found myself tired of reading the same paranormal romance theme over and over. I’m a freelance copywriter and editor so it hit me. I could do this beaten up genre some good. Turned out, the plot of my debut novel, Curse Me Not, flowed out of me as easy as molasses, as did the characters and the pivotal scenes. It was fun taking personal memories, adding a romantic fantasy or two, then wrapping it all up in a…See More

Why On Earth Knoxville, Tennessee?

Why did I pick Knoxville, Tennessee, as the setting for my debut novel, Curse Me Not? Easy. The town is big enough to have everything from an opera company to a paint ball club, yet it’s small enough for neighbors know neighbors and people to actually go downtown to see a movie or have a martini. It was perfect for my main character, an Appalachian unsophisticate who's recently gained the ability to see auras and the more lucrative ability to clean revenge curses from those auras. She needed a…See More

A Preter-what?

When I wrote my novel, Curse Me Not, what I didn’t count on was how I would see myself after the writing was done.The paranormal twist I use in in the book is one that speaks to auras and curses upon auras. The fundamental question I had to answer as I developed the story’s alternate reality was this: While we perceive…See More

Talking About Curses and The Evil Eye

My life has definitely been blessed, but there are days when nothing seems to go right. Like a superstitious peasant woman out of the Middle Ages, I start counting since, as we all know, bad things come in threes. I twist an ankle during Jazzercise – that’s one. I come home to find an overflowing toilet – that’s two. Hell’s…See More

It's with pleasure I offer my debut novel, Curse Me Not, for your enjoyment. It brings a new and southern twist to paranormal romance that I hope "y'all" will enjoy.  [Publisher: Champagne Books, Released: December 2014, 280 pages, ISBN: 9781771551243, ASIN: B00PKLJF9Q]

 

Curse Me Not introduces southern unsophisticate Elzetta Swan who recently gained the ability to see auras and the more lucrative ability to clean revenge curses from those auras. Embracing the gift faster than grass through a goose, she’s about to finish her first year as a licensed "bodywasher" with a trendy new lifestyle and a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank.

 

Then a routine cleansing turns preternaturally butt ugly. Suddenly finding herself in over her head, Elzetta begins to suspect a powerful invoker has come to town—one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses—and that he’s visiting at the behest of a mysterious local who has a serial hunger for revenge. As she attempts to track down the culprits, Elzetta will face two fateful confrontations. Each will threaten her new life and the hallelujah hankering she has for the reluctant white knight who’s helping her, but together these confrontations could do much worse. They could create in Elzetta a vengeful rage all her own.

 

If you would like more information about me or my novel, please feel free to visit www.elizabethfisherauthor.com. Curse Me Not is available at most major booksellers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.

No Sense Worrying

Posted on September 26, 2017 at 9:33pm 0 Comments

On one of my earliest trips abroad, I happened to strike up a conversation with a fellow backpacker over expressos at some student café in Paris. One topic led to another, and she ended up telling me about a strange decision made by a friend of hers. Now, many years later, the backpacker’s tale came to mind when I was challenged to create a piece of flash fiction about going overseas. I daresay young girls still agonize over the same decision: the who, the when—although in light of the…

Rage As a Cannibal

Rage is not anger. Don’t confuse the two.

 

We can rant at a neighbor’s dog that won’t stop barking, we can snap at a significant other for not picking up their dirty underwear, we can even feel our blood pressure rise at the words of a politician or shout at another driver who cuts…

Human Aliens

Posted on June 18, 2017 at 9:13pm 2 Comments

While I write paranormal romance and urban fantasy, many members of my local writers group focus on science fiction. At a recent group meeting, we fell into a discussion of how hard it is to develop truly "alien" aliens. After all, anything that comes out of a human brain, no matter how sci-fi’ish, tends to be anthropomorphic and thus too comprehensible, even familiar.

 

Following the discussion, we assigned ourselves an abbreviated…

Romance Shmo-mance

Posted on March 28, 2017 at 9:21pm 0 Comments

While we women authors often include at least a touch of romance in our novels, it doesn’t mean women understand romance better than men or even that we’re better at "working" it. Perhaps—and this is just my opinion—women simply have more fun with romance than men do.

 

Let’s suppose for a moment…
