  6. Hi, Lizzie. I loved BEYOND MAGIC. So does Cori, Emma's roommate, get a book and a love of her own? Much success to you. -- Karen G.

  7. Thank you, Melissa. Look forward to reading your latest. Glad I finished the one of yours I was reading before I got the AOE panels!

  8. Congratulations on your new release. You are a new author for me but I love Paranormal books and I see you write about Vampires which is one of my favorites!

    Do you have a favorite book cover? Yours or someone else's?

    I was sorting through some of my books and kept thinking to myself, oh that's a nice book cover, no that ones even

  9. Thank you Karen. Delighed you enjoyed Beyond Magic. And yes, Cori gets a book and love of her, a fun contest. I'll be looking for a chocolate recipe for Cori to make and one lucky submitter will have their recipe at the back of the book with credit to them.

  10. Hi Mary. Thanks and like you I love paranormal/fantasy books. They're fun to read and to write.

    My favorite cover of my books is this one. The cover artist listened and made great suggestions. He's a hottie!

    Other the top of my head, Melissa Mayhue's come to mind. Like the fantasy element on them.

  11. Hi, Beyond Magic sounds great. I am looking forward to reading it and the other books in the series. My question for you, would you like to stay in a haunted Scottish castle?

  12. Thanks Cheralyn. Hope you enjoy.

    Sure, it would be fun. Hubby & I were married in a Scottish castle, but no ghostly visits.

    Nor did we get a visit from the ghost that is suppose to haunt the room we stayed in at a Colorado Inn.

  13. Many congratulations, my friend -- I can't wait to read this one!

  14. Thank you, Helen. When is your next release? Drumming fingers on get the picture.

  15. Congrats on the new release, Lizzie, you know I am a big fan of yours. I love how you mix humor with heat.

    So, how do you do that? Does it come naturally, or do you have to work at it?

  16. Would this book be considered a contemporary paranormal or a time travel story? Looking forward to reading this book.

  17. Hi Valerie, great to see you here!

    The snark (humor) seems to come naturally...ingrained I'm afraid. The heat some days requires effort and others not so much...hubby loves those days...grin.

  18. Hi lindseye! Thanks for stopping in. Definitely contemporary paranormal. It's set in current time...its set in Scotland, Denver & Charleston.

  19. Hi, Lizzie.

    Congrats on your latest release; I look forward in reading Beyond Magic.

    I like Beyond Magic's book cover; did you work closely with the artist?

  20. Are there any settings that have an energy that you'd like to capture in a book?

  21. Congrats on your new release!

    Any idea how many books will be in this series?

  22. Congratulations on your new release. What all genre's do you write and what is your favorite to read?

  23. Hi Tracey D. Yes, I did work closely with the cover artist and she made it so easy. She put forth several suggestions after she called and we talked. Then we started to narrow down and finally ended up with the basic idea on this cover. From there she took it and I think came up with a cover to be proud of. Plus, on the print book, the back cover is very cool too.

  24. Hi Leni, I try to paint the atmosphere of settings which I think lend to the energy.

    Thanks for asking, never had that question asked before.

  25. Jeepers, Estella...all ready calling me out, are you...LOL

    Currently, I have a total of 5 books planned. The 2nd one I'm pulling together ideas on now and will be announcing a cool contest that goes with it while it is still being written.

  26. Hey Sherry, I have paranormalromance novellas and erotic contemporary novellas, as well as a holiday historical that I wrote for the Aurora Regency line of Aspen Mountain Press.

    Struck by Lighting, my prior paranormal/fantasy novel won a dual Beacon award and finaled in several other contests the year it came out in print.

    In addition to the next Magical Love novel, I'm also working on a mainstream novel.

  27. Congrats Lizzie and I look forward to having you and Beyond Magic as my guests next week!
