I can’t think of a title.

Over Christmas I had some inspiration for Matt and Mal’s book – Number two in ‘The Deal’ series. But recently, I’ve been drawing blanks, they aren’t talking to me and it’s been frustrating to say the least. So the other week, it was nearing my bed time and suddenly these two new characters popped into my head. I went a bit late to bed that night as I was writing the opening chapter, researching the opening chapter and crying my eyes out whilst writing it. I woke up exhausted but quite excited that I had newbies knocking at my door.

I actually don’t have a plan for these two. No idea where they are heading but I’ll go wherever they take me.

I’m not putting a deadline on myself, I’m just taking it easy. I work full time and my boyfriend is coming to live with me for a few weeks tomorrow, but once he’s moved out at the end of July and goes back to uni for the year in September, I’ll have nine months without really seeing him, so this can be my distraction. Nathan and Demi.

Let’s see where these two take me!

Happy Easter with a deal on top

Hiyyyya:)

As an Easter present from myself, The Deal will be 99c on Amazon US from March 24th – March 31st.  I wish I could make a deal for Amazon UK, but I’m only allowed one. But UK will be coming in a few weeks time and it’s only £1.99 at the moment😉 If that persuades you to buy my sexy, dirty-mouthed but sensitive Craig Thomas, who would be more than happy to introduce himself to you.

UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Deal-Z-Elizabeth-ebook/dp/B00QEIVS2G/
US: http://www.amazon.com/Deal-Z-Elizabeth-ebook/dp/B00QEIVS2G/
CA: http://www.amazon.ca/Deal-Z-Elizabeth-ebook/dp/B00QEIVS2G/
AUS: http://www.amazon.com.au/Deal-Z-Elizabeth-ebook/dp/B00QEIVS2G/

I also want to say thank you to those who are patiently waiting for book two. It’s taking longer than I wanted (Nearly two years) but it’s been hard getting back into writing and I’ve been willing Matt and Mal to speak to me. And they do….sometimes. Just not at the moment.

Craig and Nic’s Valentine’s Special

So, I’ve missed writing these two, as they are my babies, so I decided to drop in and see what they were doing on Valentines Day, and as you know, Nic and  Craig can’t keep their hands off each other. Enjoy!! (It’s a little bit long, sorry not sorry!)

Hello from a stranger

Hi guys *waves*

How has everyone been these past couple of months?

I realise the last time I posted was back in May. That’s pretty rubbish and I apologise to you all – well those who have missed me 😉 – but as my usual excuse goes, life has been busy and amazing and jam-packed and writing has taken a backburner for the moment. Back in May I told you all I got a new job, and I’ve been there nearly eight months now so that’s been a stressful few months as I work in events. Secondly, I’ve been with the boy, no denying that I don’t want to sit on a computer writing when I’m with him and thirdly, I sit at a computer all day and when I get home, I don’t want to sit at my laptop and write. So those are my excuses.

Now maybe the good news. I’ll have a week off during Xmas (I’m spending a few days in Copenhagen for NY) so I will have time on my hands to spend a few days with Matt and Mal and hopefully get a big chunk of their story down. I’d love to get it out sometime next year seeing as The Deal has now been out a year and I don;t want too much time  apart from them being released. So we’ll see. We’ll see what happens in a few weeks time.

I just hope you’ll stick  with me and when the time comes, love Matt and Mal like I do.

I don’t want to stop writing….

Matt’s book!

So the past couple of days, I’ve been so inspired. Matt and Mallory  – Yupp, I’ve decided to let you know my heroines name – have been speaking to me. Like constantly. And all this week I haven’t stopped with their story.

Last week I lost my job, but thankfully, I went to an interview on Tuesday the boss quite literally offered me the job there and then, so I start on Monday. Which is why I am cramming in as much writing as I can at the moment. It’s an exciting new opportunity, with more money in which i can start saving again for a house, less working hours (Mon – Thurs: 9 – 5pm and Fridays – 9 – 4pm) and an opportunity to grow and be trained up with the company.

But anyway…

I finished my job last Thursday and haven’t gone a day where I haven’t written Matt’s book, even if its been a few hundred words a day. I’m currently at 8,000 words right now. I have their story in my head but at the end of the day, it’s their story to tell, so we shall see what they say.

I’m hoping book two will be darker, deeper and more emotional than The Deal was, mainly due to the issues in this book which you will find out on the first page. That is, unless when it goes to Betas and they tell me to keep it quiet until a few chapters in. But other than that, all the gang will be in book two, they may not have great big parts but they will grace you with their presence somewhere along the lines.

For now though, I’ll leave you with who I picture Matt and Mallory if you haven’t seen my inspiration on my Facebook page yet!

So please welcome Lucas Gil and Hayley Williams!

Apologies, apologies.

I’ve been completely MIA on my website for the past two months and I really should be keeping it updated every week, but alas, that I have not.

I’d love to say it’s because I’ve been soooo busy in my real life and writing book two, but that would be a lie. I’ve just been a hermit really and since I spend all day on a computer at work, I don’t want to be coming home and spending the next few hours on my laptop. All I want to do is just chill until it’s time to go to bed.

Which leads me to an update on Matt’s book – I haven’t even started it. Not sure what is going on with me but I just don’t want to read or write at the moment. Matt isn’t speaking to me and I don’t want to start a book just for the sake of starting a book. I want to be able to put my all in it and Matt’s story deserves that. I don’t have the mojo and I’m not sure when I’ll get it – hopefully soon but bare with me! Matt will be coming, I just don’t know when.

Last month I had The Deal tour, hosted by the lovely girls at Between the Sheets Promotions – HIGHLY Recommended – and I’ve picked the winners of my tour giveaway but as I’m not on my laptop, I don’t know them off the top of my head but I’ll post them some time this week and get posting at the end of the month when i get paid! This month has rinsed me of money what with spending a few days in Dublin and going to Alton Towers etc. I’m not on the grandest of wages so I need to be careful with my spending haha.

Other than that, that’s everything I wanted to say. I’m being a hermit and have been for a few weeks but if you want to reach me you can on Twitter or Facebook. I get the notifications so I won’t be ignoring you😉

If you want to find out who Matt is – and fall for Craig, you can get The Deal here:

2014 in a nutshell.

God, who can believe that it’s nearly 2015?! I can honestly say that this year has quite literally flown by. I can remember every single detail of the year and as always, I’ve had some incredible high and low moments but you know what? They are what make you that much stronger as a person and with only two days left, I came into 2014 in the most amazing way and I’ll be leaving it in the most amazing way – with my friends, food, alcohol and fireworks.

The past year I’ve gone from having crazy coloured hair, losing two jobs, moving back into my parents house and meeting some amazing authors in Edinburgh as well as flying on my own. Flying over to Turkey with two of my best friends to see my best friend who was repping for six months, I passed my driving test, I burned out two clutches on my car, I sat in the back of a police car for the first time and I started a new job. I met an amazing guy who is now my boyfriend, I fell in love after five years of being single and I PUBLISHED A BOOK.

You could say that it’s been quite an eventful year and I regret nothing. Everything that’s happened has created a memory that will stick with me and I have the photos to prove it.

10599482_10152251310991301_6262254467928327376_nPassing my driving test after four months was such a giddy feeling. I could have learnt when I was 17 but I decided that spending a month in Kenya was too important to pass and at 23 I was in a job, earning money to pay towards the lessons and I felt so much more mature than I would have done at 17. It’s given me the freedom to just get in my car and drive without having to ask for lifts and to be picked up from bus and train stops. I love driving even if I have burned out my clutch twice in the past three months I’ve had the car. Oops.

I also met a guy three months ago. A guy who, after the first date, I knew I wanted to spend more time with. And thank God he wanted that too. I met a guy after five years of being single, after five years of being content in not wanting to have a boyfriend; he came along and turned me upside down. He made me fall in love with him and I made him fall in love with me and I couldn’t be any happier than when I get to see him, when he’s a funny jackass to me and when I get to just cwtch up to him and fall asleep beside him. It’s still fresh but I’m so excited to see what is going to happen. We’re going away for the weekend next month for my birthday and then he’s taking me away for a few days in February for an extended birthday present – he just won’t tell me where or what we are doing.

The Deal No 10 KopieAnd finally, maybe the most important part of 2014 was that I turned from a blogger to an author. After a year of writing The Deal, I finally published it on Dec 1st. I got to press ‘publish’ on Craig and Nic’s story. I don’t care about money or ratings or best seller lists, I cared about ticking ‘write a book’ from my bucket list and that’s exactly what I did. I don’t go on Goodreads to look at ratings or reviews, I don’t even look at my KDP page to see how many have been sold because what’s the point of going batshit crazy over it all? So even if you absolutely hate the book or love it, I thank you for reading it!

(I’m going to do a little self-promo here, just because I can. So if you want a little extra hotness in your life, then Grab The Deal now. It’ll also be reduced to 99c for a week in Jan when my tour is happening!)

The Deal update!

It’s been just over a month since I’ve posted anything, that is pretty bad in my standards!

The past month has been pretty good to me. I’ve got a new job as a Digital Marketing Manager but it’s 9 – half 5pm and I’ve never worked that extra half hour before, and let me tell you, that extra half hour makes all the difference. So I normally crash when I get home.

You probably noticed I haven’t been on Facebook/Twitter as much either. Thing is, I just haven’t wanted to. There’s been so much drama that I don’t want to see over my timeline so I’ve been drifting in and out but I’m hoping to be back on soon, especially now THE DEAL is out in two weeks! Plus I haven’t really had anything worth saying/sharing, so that’s another thing.

I’ve also just got into a new relationship in the past month, and after a few years of being single, it’s really lush to be with someone you really get alone with and want to see and spend time with. It’s fresh and new and we’re still getting to know one another but it’s going really good. We don’t get to see each other a lot but when we do, I don’t want to be constantly on my phone as I want to spend the time with him.

And now the big one. THE DEAL IS OUT TWO WEEKS MONDAY AHHHHHH.

I’m still editing it, so ARCS may be a bit late, but the lovely Anna Bloom is trudging her way through my little book for me to make it the best book I can give you. I’m more excited than scared. It’s not even about the money, this is more for me. For me to say “HOLY SHIT! I have a book out on kindle and paperback!” To tick it off my bucket list. I’m proud of myself for seeing this through and I hope you will want to read The Deal.

If you would like to be a part of the RELEASE DAY BLITZ on DEC 1st, please sign up. I will love you forever. The fab girls at Between The Sheets Promo are organising it:)

Thank you so much for all your support!

Character Highlight: Matt from The Deal.

The Deal No 10 Kopie

So you’ve met Jamie – Zili’s favourite character and now it’s time to meet Matt – Mallory’s favourite.

Mallory has become a really good friend throughout writing. She was my writing buddy as I wrote The Deal and she was writing her book! You all need to bully her into doing her edits because she needs to release the book and give me Knox ;) Of course, she was also my beta reader and along the way we would send scenes to each other until we both had finished and we could read the full book of each other’s work. Mallory fell in love with Matt and so, as Jamie had a character highlight, Matt definitely deserves one too.

I thought The Deal would just be a standalone and then I would move onto the next project, but whilst writing it, I fell in love with Matt. He’s special to me and throughout The Deal, snippets of his back story were coming to life on the page and the more scenes Matt was in, the more I knew he had to have his story told and his happily ever after.

Matt’s character doesn’t believe in love so he sleeps around. He’s uncomfortable around the idea of love and expressing his feelings so instead he uses sexual innuendos and comments when he is in uncomfortable situations. He’s the joker of the group, the one who will make you smile and laugh and also the one who will tear at your heartstrings; He’s loyal and protective. He has a comeback for everything and the gang, especially Nic, love him to pieces, but as mentioned, he brushes it off.

You will most definitely see this throughout The Deal, but there is hope for him, I will make sure of it. He will change his perspective of love by the time I am through with him. I’ve already got around 8000 words of his story, and it is going to be a bit deeper than The Deal as both Matt and the heroine have some obstacles to go through. Matt doesn’t believe in love and the heroine doesn’t want love. What better way than to put them together😉

Here is a line from Matt:-

 “Almost as good as porn.” He shouts into my ear, earning a punch on his arm in return, “You just need to do that without clothes on now and I would spend money watching that on pay-per-view….actually I could definitely film it for you.”

And this is who I (and Mallory) envision as Matt: –

His name is Lucas Gil and he fits the description of Matt perfectly. So say hello to Matt !
