    • You got it! Thank you muchly for your support and I shall do the Cajun accent next time I see ya!

      • Mike Payne

        Yay! I just ordered my print copy!

        • You rock! The layout of some of the chapter beginnings acted weird in the print copy, everything is correct but a few new chapters may not start on a new page. That was the only funky thing w/the print setup. Otherwise, hope you enjoy and I will sign it for you if you want! I’ll even sign it in CAJUN!

  • Elaine-I’m excited for you. You’re gonna have a great time with this, and I wish you a very productive, exciting,
    lucrative,entertaining,and educational run. I’m usually not sure about wishing without a well,but I think this one will come true.

    • Thanks muchly Will :) I like that – not usually wishing without a well! LOL. I hope it will be a good move too.

      I had so much industry feedback that was positive, but as the big publishers narrowed their focus and submissions, all their comments were things like, “I like this, I just have no idea how to market it, but I love your story and characters and…and…”

      It was time to just take the reins into my own hands, yanno?

      Thanks again!

  • Good luck Elaine. x

    • Thank you, and thanks for all your support from way across the pond!

  • Yay! Can’t wait to read it!

    • Many thanks, Eric! I know SeDonna will like some of my other genre books too that will be out later in the year, but thanks!

  • Marilyn Baron

    Elaine,I’m so excited about your new release.Congratulations.

    • Thanks Marilyn! And a BIG thanks for all your help in answering questions about the whole pubbing process :)

  • Wendy Beck

    Bought my kindle copy first thing this morning. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it!

    • You are awesome, Wendy! Many thanks for all the support and I hope you like it! Things get more heated in Book 2, which comes out in July :)

  • You did it! This is absolutely wonderful news. A big congrats and many good wishes!

    • Thanks Sarah! I never would have made it this far if you hadn’t given me such encouragement all those years back! Hope to see you at Nationals this year?

  • Shannon LeBlanc

    I’m so happy for you! I just ordered my Nook copy from Barnes & Noble! I can’t wait to read it.

  • Congratulations,Elaine! I am so excited for you! Will you be signing at GRW this month?

    • Thanks! Sadly, no. I will be out of town. However, I hope to be there in March. I have postcards with the book cover to sign that I can bring then :)

    • Thanks, BJW!!!! Appreciate it. You of all people know my mind is strange :)

    I’ll try again. The filter thwarted me twice already.
    Great cover.
    Please enter me in the drawing.
    Looking forward to your guest appearance on my blog in about 7 days.

    • Glad you liked the cover! Yes, she did an amazing job and I am happy too!

      Thanks again, and I look forward to your guest blog too!

  • Congrats,throwingconfetti.Imtrulyintriguedwiththepremiseofyourseries.

    • thank you! Confetti received! I hope the series does well. It combines 2 parts: Elementals and Fallen Angels, in a way that hasn’t been done before. Many industry folks liked it, but weren’t sure how it fit into their “pegged” marketing niches. Hence why I decided to just do it on my own :)

      Many thanks for commenting!

  • Patricia Babin Rojas

    Elaine, I’ll be ordering the print book, so you’ll have to let me know if you get back to New Orleans. I’d love to have you sign it!

    • Thanks! The print one is more expensive, FYI. Unfortunately that isn’t my doing. To set up the print-on-demand feature, they set the price high for their costs, and I only added a tiny bit to have some profit margin. But yes, order the print if you wish, and I’d be happy to sign it!

    • Ooooh – also, on the print format, some of the chapter breaks may not be on new pages. That was a weird thing with setting it all up. I could have fixed the couple of times in the book where that occurred, but it would have meant redoing the entire submission, which was already making me pull my hair out :)

      Thanks though!

  • Terry Hackworth

    So proud of you!!!Congrats on all the hard work!!

    • Thanks Terry! I appreciate the encouragement! Been a whirlwind but wonderful day!

  • Liz Wojtacha

    So thrilled for you, Elaine!!! I can’t wait to read it!

    • Thanks Liz!!!! I hope you enjoy. I need to update the SM books and put them out too :)

      • Liz Wojtacha

        Oh yes please!!! :-)

  • CONGRATULATIONS!Enjoythechampagne,youdeserveit!Caroljane

  • Larisa Dukes


    • Thank you!!!! You may want to tell Gina too; the book is set in Nawlins :)

  • HollyCormier


  • Jackie Philips

    Congratulations Elaine! I can’t wait to read it. Will it be available for the kindle?


  • Well done Elaine, I hope this is the first of many xxx

    • Thank you! This is Book 1 of a 4-Book series. Book 2 is due out in July, and there are 2-3 pages “sneak peek” at Book 2 at the end of Book 1 :)

  • Atalie Fazande Andressen

    I am awaiting the release of your book with baited breath. Having grown up in NOLA, and writing my series based there, I am excited to read a book by another native. Went back there in September to do research. I didn’t want any errors because my memories are all post-Katrina. I really miss my city.
    Congrats on your book.

    • Thank you! I agree with you. NOLA is one of those iconic cities that I miss every day. Appreciate you commenting!

  • Patrick Keefe

    Looking forward to reading a great book by my new favorite author. Also looking forward to seeing the movie series on this once they come out. :)

    • Patrick, your comment made me smile and blush :)

      Thanks for your confidence, your friendship, and for all those great times at GCC. I hope you enjoy the book :)

  • Congratulations on this significant milestone Elaine! I am thrilled to be back in touch. More lunches soon!

  • Willena

    Hey does this count?I was driving to Paducah yesterday and got up here and couldn’t buy the book because my sisters internet connection is down.

    Best of luckwith the new title. Can’t wait to read it.

    • I suppose I could cut you some slack and let it count, since you were behind the wheel all day :)

      But I have already drawn a number/name set (actually, my mom did so it would not be biased) and you didn’t win – sorry :(

      BUT you can still buy the book for only 2.99!

  • Congratulations, Elaine! So proud of you.

  • Lots of folks cheering you,lady!

  • Very happy for you! Sorry to be late to the party, but I was gone Fri & Sat & playing catchup yesterday & today.

    Scooting over to the BigZon to make my purchase now! Congratulations!

    • Thanks so much Pam! I appreciate it, and seeing as how the book is set in #NOLA, I hope you enjoy!

  • DeAnn

    I’ve read the first 5 chapters and am really enjoying the storyline…you have talent! Congrats!

    • Thanks DeAnn! Your comment made my day, as I am only beginning to hear back from a few people so far on what they think! Amazon had a couple of reviews from early readers, but am glad you are enjoying :)
