Elyzabeth – It’s lovely to connect with you through our publisher Evernight Publishing and I’m pleased to hear you have a new release for your readers to enjoy. But before we discover more about Dark Heart, here are a few questions that will hopefully give your readers and followers an insight into some of the things that matter to you.
Arabella: Are there any organisations, writing, or reader groups, you belong to? And, how do they support or help you when creating a romantic novel?
Elyzabeth: I belong to several writing and reader groups on Facebook and they’re all great in their individual ways. The best support is from my own group, Elyzabeth’s Dreamers. Their presence and enthusiasm keeps me going.
Arabella: Where do you read? Sofa or bed or ____?
Elyzabeth: Sofa, bed, and bus. I have a long commute to my day job, so I take advantage of the time to read or write.
Arabella: In your latest release, Dark Heart, who is your favourite character and why?
Elyzabeth: My hero, Daryl Jones, is my favorite character in Dark Heart. He’s gone through a lot, and it shows in his personality, but at the same time, he hasn’t given up.
Arabella: When writing a novel, how do you work? Are you a plotter or pantser?
Elyzabeth: 50/50? I start off being a pantser, just with a basic scene but after that I make an outline of how I’d like the story to go. Of course, in the end, characters rule and things never follow the plan the way they should.
Arabella: Which would you prefer to do?
1) Spend a morning vigorously working out at the gym
2) Be pampered from head to toe at the spa and beauty salon
3) Indulge and pile on the pounds with a romantic dinner for two?
Elyzabeth: Indulge and pile on the pounds with a romantic dinner for two!
Arabella: Which of the following would you rather wear?
1) Beach shorts and top
2) A long evening skirt and blouse
3) Pyjamas and slippers
Elyzabeth: Pyjamas and slippers (It’s actually what I’m wearing now. LOL)
Arabella: We all have a long list of books we keep meaning to read but never have the time for --- which book is a must read for you this season?
Elyzabeth: Great question. I have to choose one? I think, I’d go with the Reluctant Bride - Anthology, since it has a lot of great stories.
Arabella: What about your future plans? Any books or series in the making?
Elyzabeth: Yes! I’m planning to write book two in the Shadow Shifters books (you can find the first story as part of the Romancing the Shifter anthology which is only available until October 16th). I’m also looking to republish one of my very first stories, a very short vampire tale.
Elyzabeth, thank you for being a super guest on Arabella’s Blog and Chit-Chat, today. Your Facebook group – Elyzabeth’s Dreamers – sounds amazing. Wishing you all the best for your latest release, Dark Heart.

Blurb - Dark Heart
The world is changing...
Ten years ago, Daryl Jones lost his pack to a group
of demon vampires. Since then, he not only lost his will to battle for good,
but his life has become a spiral of drinking, fighting and fucking anything in
sight. In his opinion, a pretty perfect existence. Until he meets the new SOA
representative sent to convince him to go back to the lab. With mile long legs,
a tight little ass, and a smile to kill for, when she offers him a bargain—how
can he possibly refuse?
Silvia Adams, has one mission: convince Daryl Jones to work for SOA again. The agency needs him to get back into the lab and help develop a serum to neutralize the growing number of vampires. She knew it wouldn’t be an easy task, but with her job on the line, she’ll do anything it takes—including bargaining with the shifter and surrendering to her deepest desires. Only problem is, she might have bartered for more than she can handle.
