It's Here!

Book Two in The Huntington Saga Series Novels~

Pirate Bride!

Miss Susannah Blakemore is kidnapped and sold into white slavery as payback to the Huntingtons. Will her pirate hero save her?

“The Huntingtons will pay. Oh, they will pay.” Plots and unholy alliances are put into action carrying out long-awaited retribution.

Only … one was not thought of. One was not even considered. How would anyone have guessed that a descendant of a pirate would take up his old family tradition in a mad quest to regain his bitterly lost love? The Marquess of Latham will not abide by this act of violence arranged for his precious love, but will surely save her -- will he not? And will he make her the next pirate bride?

Next? There must be a first to have a 'next'. But there was another ... centuries ago ... that still walks the halls of Stonecrest Castle.

It’s Here! The much anticipated Book Three in The Huntington Saga Series Novels is Now Available! Get your copy of Elspeth Was Her Name here!

Elspeth McCabe leaves her small Scottish home desperate to find someplace safe…even if safety is only dirty streets. She cannot bear another day spent at the mercy of others. 

Elspeth’s life in the year 1585 is filled with hardships she has borne with steely resolve for 20 years. Strong-willed, but quiet, she serves diligently in a wealthy household...a rich landowner's. But she will not allow his hands to touch her ever again. Nor will she allow her merciless and abusive father to take from her the only thing which might prove her bloodline.

Now on the run and without friend or support of any kind, she continues to bear difficulties that would easily destroy others. And it nearly does destroy her. Near death’s door, Elspeth is rescued and brought to a beautiful manor house in the Sussex countryside—Huntington Manor. Will she ever awaken? And if she does, will she find more evil charades she has only just escaped? Will she find a new master intolerable and immoral, too?

But Elspeth does awaken and what she finds frightens her more than any detestable hands ever could. Frightens her in a most strange, unpredictable, and delicious way. Can Elspeth ever trust a man enough to discover what a true and kind gentleman is all about? Find out in this third installment of The Huntington Saga Series Novels.

​This is a standalone story, but enhanced by the previous books.

Finally in PAPERBACK!

It's taken awhile, but finally THE GATES OF LOUGHURST CASTLE is available in PAPERBACK! Woohoo! To get your copy today, click on this link!

Here's what people are saying...

I've known and been a fan of this author for quite a few years. Being familiar with her favorite genre, this was a completely new avenue. Being a follower of The Walking Dead, I was prepared. Although the level of horrific blood and gore is toned down, the evidence of and reactions to the 'undead' are alive and well. I was impressed at the fluidity, and encourage any and all ages to pick this up. Ellise, my friend, you've done it again, can't wait for the next installment. 

I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait for more. Love the historical romance with a twist. Sometimes you need that.

I love the feel of the matte cover.  It feels like its made of rubber! :)  And the cream colored pages are just right for the time period.  Love it!

Your Question is Answered...!

September 1, 2016 UPDATE!

I've had so many of you asking when Elspeth Was Her Name will be released. That makes me so happy! It also makes me sad to tell you that I haven't been working on it for awhile, and I'm sorry to have to admit that to you all (although I'm two-thirds of the way finished!).  My health has been so poor and gets in the way of so much that I am trying to do.  So...the honest truth is, if you would love to see Elspeth out sooner, there's something you can do for me. Please share my work with everyone you know. This would help me tremendously, which in turn, helps me finish writing books.  It takes so much energy and brainpower to work on these stories and, although I love them, I'm sapped.

The good news is -- I plan on finishing Elspeth no later than spring of 2017.  I'm putting a date on it now so that I can push myself to finish on time for my fans.  And if you can't wait til then, click here for something new to read from me.  But I must warn you, it's scary -- not my normal genre.  And it's not even close to Elspeth, but...it's something new.

Until my next update -- be well and celebrate life!  Love others, forgive, and love some more...

New Books Coming!

Five 2016 Projects, so far...

We’re hot into the second quarter of this 2016 year, and a lot has been going on.  I’m sure for you, too.  Navigating the list can be daunting, right?  But I’m giving it the best shot I can give.  How about you?  I hope you’re having a great year! 
Here’s just a little of what I’ve been working on:

New books coming soon: 

1      ***SPOILER ALERT***  In my book, The Governess Trilogy, there is a book of poetry gifted to Miss Carly Blakemore to read.  She hated it.  It was gloomy and morose.  After reading several poems from that book, she worried for her master, Lord Huntington, who was the person who loaned it to her.  She worried about him, especially the condition of his wounded heart.  Further in The Governess story, Carly reads some very romantic poetry penned by her master, surprising her, but she doesn’t know who he has written it regarding.  It further surprises her how deeply he feels.  The idea that his heart is healing makes her profoundly happy, yet she feels a spark of jealousy as she discovers that the thought of any other woman inciting such devotion from him upsets her.  She shocks herself when she realizes that she would love to be the woman he is speaking about.    

It is this very poetry, both heartbreaking and heart-healing that I am contemplating writing as a supplemental book to accompany the original story.  Now my readers will not only have Carly and Creighton’s story, but the book of poetry that gives insight into The Governess.  I have yet to begin this project, for I wanted to see if there would be any interest in this book. 

Please click here and add your name to the list of readers who would enjoy this book of poetry that Creighton and Carly both read.

Another new project I’ve been consumed with writing this past month – A Guide to Writing Your Book with Zero Budget Tools:  How to Plan, Write, Publish & Market Your Book with Zero Budget Tools.  This is the project in which I am currently spending most of my time.  It is a systematic instruction guide of how I wrote, published, and marketed my books for virtually free, as well as successfully sold my books online, and how anyone can replicate that process.  I think I’ve learned some valuable lessons that are worth sharing, all on a zero budget.
  o   If you’d like to add your name to the sign-ups for:
§  The FREE Guide
§  The Book
§  The Course
§  Then please visit my website here

3   Some of you will remember an email from me, a month or two ago, telling you about a new category that I’m writing a short story about – My historical romance with zombies. Yes, I know.  Silly me.  It’s called Zombie Apocalypse at Loughurst Castle: Book 1.  The title may change, and so might the cover, but for now, I’m good.  Here’s the link if you’d like to sign up for the mailing list to be notified when this book is released. 
Some of you will remember an email from me, a month or two ago, telling you about a new category that I’m writing a short story about –
And for those of you who signed up already in my previous email, you can still sign up for this new list, but you don’t have to.  I will be sending a letter out to those who are on both lists and want to purchase the book, and / or first want to be a beta-reader for me.  Thanks! 

4   Elspeth Was Her Name, I will finish that novel, a historical romance, my favorite genre, and publish it just as soon as I can.  I am so excited to share my stories with you.  Thanks for the support!
And even though I’ve taken a break from completing


       And now, for another new project: I’m in the middle of creating a Course to accompany my “How To” book. 
This COURSE will teach “hands-on,” step-by-step application of the methods taught in the book, A Guide to Writing Your Book with Zero Budget Tools: How to Plan, Write, Publish & Market Your Book with Zero Budget Tools.  
If you would be interested in learning more, click here to sign up.

I’ve been reading and researching a TON, which is taking up more of my time than actual writing.  Well, that’s not quite true.  I’ve been writing a great deal, but just not romance.  Well, that’s not even true either because the zombie story has to have a little romance, since that’s what I do.  There always has to be a hero.  But I’ve been concentrating my time writing my How To book and creating websites, and putting together my course, as well as learning how to do a webinar, and tons more cool stuff.  Crazy, I know! 
I’m exhausted, but I hope that what I’m learning will change things up for me.  I enjoy the idea of helping other authors and “want-to-be” authors.  And I’m also looking forward to finishing the romance series for my readers’ entertainment.  All great fun.
Good luck with your goals and your dreams for the rest of 2016!  I hope you sign up for the projects you're interested in following.  Enjoy the journey with me.
