Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Time for a Halloween #MFRWHooks BlogHop!

with 2 comments

I’ve done the Marketing For Romance Writers Book Hooks Blog Hop once before, but how could I possibly resist doing it again considering we’re nearly up to Halloween? So here we go . . . it’s time for a #MFRWHooks Halloween blog hop!

a0bb9-anelfyontheloose_medHere’s a wee snippet from chapter 2 of AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE to whet your interest:

Sarah had stopped and appeared to be weaving on her feet. Bruno jogged the equivalent of three city blocks to get to her, hoping she’d not fall before he made it.

“Bruno, I feel…sick,” she gasped when he was only a few steps away. He sprinted toward her and turned her around; her greenish-white face was alarming.

He tried not to panic, but he had no way to treat her illness, and no way to get her any help. He felt completely useless, as he had no healing magic…

Lost on a sea of too-green grass, with no way out in sight.

I hope you enjoyed that little snippet. But perhaps you’d rather read a short blurb about what AN ELFY ON THE LOOSE is about instead?

Bruno the Elfy believes he’s very young, has no power, and has no enemies.

He’s wrong.

Quickly sent to our Earth (the Human Realm) and told to watch for magic, Bruno must unravel the lies, keep his mentor from being tortured, and—oh, yeah—figure out why he’s so strongly attracted to young, Human Sarah.

Because his life depends on it.

Or maybe you’d just like to read more of the sample chapters? (If so, here they are.)

Or maybe — just maybe — something here intrigued you. If that’s the case, here are my buy links:

Amazon (UK):
Barnes and Noble:

Now, go be fruitful and multiply — or at least make your way to the next blog in the hop by visiting as that’s the easiest way to discover any number of other interesting books, all featuring at least a small hint of romance.

  1. Enjoyed the snippet. Hope Bruno figures out how to help Sarah – greenish white face is usually not good.
    Love the lines form your blurb – Bruno the Elfy believes he’s very young, has no power, and has no enemies.

    He’s wrong.

    that catches the attention!
