My Book of Stories on Release Day for Across A Crowd… Eliza March on Across a Crowded Room Wins Boo… Julianne on Across a Crowded Room Wins Boo… Elizabeth Marchat on Across A Crowded Room coming… Lorelei Confer on Across A Crowded Room coming…
I loved writing this book. You can’t beat a hot highland dire wolf or a hunky wounded army ranger who’s a shifter and handles personal security. There’s a sleazy antagonist and a bitch who needs puttin’ in her place. Two romances in one. Both heroines are far from needy. In fact, they are both ready to go it alone until fate takes control. They resist giving in, but not forever when the men are satisfied with the status quo. …and hot sex. Did I forget to mention that?

DEFEAT THE THE DARKNESS by Eliza March book 1 in the Hearts of Darkness series can be read alone but only under the covers with the light on.
Possessed by evil, ruled by lust, driven by hunger. Can love defeat the ancient demon and turn the darkness into light?
Max Hamilton and Shelby Mackenzie go way back to being in diapers together. Over the years, they’ve shared playgrounds and fishing, first dates and first sexual experiences. It wasn’t a surprise when she followed Max to Tulane Medical School where they shared Kyle Lachlan—Max’s new friend and Shelby’s first real love.
Before Kyle, something had always been missing in the romance department for Shelby. But when Kyle announces he’s joined Physicians International Charity and is heading out to save innocent lives after the mudslides in Guatemala, Shelby is devastated. Until, he gives her a family heirloom engagement ring.
Kyle is determined to make up for his privileged Boston upbringing even if it means being separated from Shelby for a few months while she finishes her residency. But when he arrives in the makeshift medical camp, strange things begin to happen. Local legends inspired by the jungle jaguars tell of men who shift into the form of the large cats.
While out searching for a missing boy, Kyle is attacked by a rogue jaguar. His life changes, instantly and so does he. His former beliefs and ideals manifest into the myths and legends of a bad “B” horror flick.
Pursued by a demonic vampire, the exquisitely beautiful yet evil, Amyra de la Santiago plans to use him for her own selfish purpose. Kyle is determined to fight becoming the dark demon he senses within her.
She will stop at nothing to fulfill her ambitions, and Kyle is the answer she’s been waiting over three thousand years for. Leverage is what she needs to convince him, and who better to use against him than the people he cares about most?
Kyle will do anything to protect innocent lives like Max’s and keep the woman he loves safe even if it means sacrificing himself to the demon. What does it matter since his soul is already lost to the darkness?
Shelby must learn to believe in Kyle, again, then trust him and finally, she must be willing to fight for him. Later, there will be time to deal with the secret need she developed from the transition he caused. The hunger for sexual satisfaction drives her the way a vampire is driven by the need for blood. Max is always a willing partner, but as relationships change, so do their needs.
Will Kyle adjust and accept their new roles? After the danger is past, will Kyle be able to love a sex fae?
Shelby holds out hope since she is the light to his darkness. Only she can defeat the demon darkness taking over both Kyle and Max.
It’s something else. This is an old short post from my Elizabeth Marchat page.
With nine books published and four in some stage of the development process, yet still in manuscript form, I have to ask myself what’s holding up the process? For starters…there’s life. But that’s an excuse. There’s always life to deal with. No, it’s something else. An impasse within the story or a question about the genre or how the industry is impacting your future sales….and on and on. Someone brilliant once said, “Just write the damn book!” And I’m a true believer.
ACROSS A CROWDED ROOM in the IATO series
By: Eliza March
You should check this series out if you like suspense and intrigue. There’s also plenty of romance and sometimes a little lust. Go to my BOOK tab at my website Eliza March
After anti-terrorist agent Jason DesJardin survived the explosion that killed Emily Holmes’s father, he went deep undercover. Guilt and his dark past kept him from returning for her. When Emily discovers ties between the old bombing and the terrorists, she finagles an assignment to Jason’s next mission. The balance of world power drops into her inexperienced hands, and she is forced to play a dangerous game of seduction with Mosel Reinhardt, the notorious international arms dealer. Is Reinhardt peddling the nanotech chip technology, or are Emily’s instincts about him correct?
The mission heats up when Jason finds he can’t resist Emily—agency computer genius gone femme fatale—any more than Mosel can. After years of waiting to have her again, the tables turn. Jason is unwilling to share her now, but will he be able to watch her seduce Mosel in order to find her father’s killer? Would she stop if he asked her?
Honestly, with the publication world changing daily, it’s hard to stay motivated about writing. Where should an author submit his manuscript? Should I just write what’s in my head and hope it fits some publisher’s guidelines? Or should I write this book for myself and share it by self publishing and let come what may?
I’m committed to several series and those are committed to several publishers, so if I finish a series they are going to be with those publishers for at least five years whether they’re selling or not. Whether they get decent exposure of not. Whether policies change or not. Then I look at self publishing: What are the upsides?
Pricing – it’s my choice
Marketing – it’s my choice
Book Cover/Title – it’s my choice
Genre it’s my choice
So if the publishers are not willing to negotiate any of these options then why would an author publish with them? There must be an upside to traditional publishers, eBook publishers, or small houses. I believe it’s the organization. Authors want to write. They don’t want to sell, market, blog, twitter, or Facebook. I write under a pseudonym that sells quite well. But to be honest when I started, there wasn’t the competition for the front page of the websites like there is today. The more authors, the more books, the harder it is to find you let alone discover you. So how can your work get discovered?
Readers are your best promoters. If I’m in love with an author or series I’m compelled to share that information with other readers. Goodreads is an excellent source of readers and reviewers. Sometimes personal tastes get in the way of quality reviews but somewhere within the lists of readers you’ll find the information you’re looking for about authors and their books.
I hope this was a thought-provoking blog today. If you enjoyed it please share it. And if you’ve read a good book lately, share that information with your friends.
I’m working on the follow up story to Across A Crowded Room. I’d like to give Cade a crack at uncovering the where abouts of the master mind behind the car bombing.
