Out and About with Lizzie T. Leaf
April 16, 2007 | Interviews
ST: Welcome, Lizzie, and thank you for visiting with us this week. Congratulations on Struck by Lightning being a 2007 Award of Excellence Finalist. You must be very proud.
LTL: Heck yeah, I’m proud of it…my first at making the top grouping in a contest…LOL.
ST: Let’s show everyone your beautiful cover.
ST: Lizzie, tell us about yourself.
LTL: I live in the Denver area with my husband of three years. I’ve been seriously writing for the last four years and very seriously, after we were married and my new spouse told me I needed to focus on my writing. The children are adults with families of their own. Ask me if I spoil my granddarlings??? Dang right, I do. Every chance I get.
ST: How many books have you written to date?
LTL: Nine published books in varying lengths. Currently, working on 3 that will be finished between the first and end of February.
ST: Which is your favorite and why?
LTL: Wow, tough question. The one I’m working on at the moment is usually the way it works with me. I love the Again and Again series, as I can bring my fascination with history into the stories. The Sexy Ladies series is also fun!
ST: Do you also have books in print?
LTL: Yes, Struck by Lightning which is in the Triskelion series, The Still Sexy Ladies Guide Dating Immortals. I’ve done a lot of book signings at Borders and it’s available at Amazon.com. I’m currently working on another contribution to the series.
ST: What is your latest release in print and e-published?
LTL: In bookstore print, Struck by Lightning and e-book at Triskelion. In POD and e-book, I have a short in the Jaded Beasts VI with Midnight Showcase and at Lulu.com for the print. In e-book only, my latest is a “hot” little short with Aspen Mountain Press’ called Night Nurse, in their Brown Paper Wrapper releases. All of my AMP books are also at Fictionwise.
ST: Where can we buy your books?
LTL: Stuck by Lightning, Call Me, Boy Toy and Forget the Mistletoe are all available in e-book at Triskelion Publishing. If you can’t find Struck by Lightning at your local bookstore, then try Amazon.com.
Among the Stones, The Nutcracker Returns and Night Nurse are at Aspen Mountain Press and Fictionwise in e-book only.
The Jaded Beasts VI anthology is at Midnight Showcase. I just received an e-mail from someone commenting on Enchanting, which is my contribution. She said she almost wet her pants she laughed so hard while reading my book. Now, that is a compliment! Studly Service is at Erotique/Echelon Press and available at Fictionwise.
ST: You write for at least five publishers. How do you manage that kind of work load?
LTL: The requests were spaced out over time, so it really wasn’t an issue.
ST: Thanks, Lizzie, for all the time you’ve given us today. I’m looking forward to tomorrow.
LTL: I’ll be here bright and early.
ST: Please feel free to post any questions you have for Lizzie. She’ll check back throughout the day and answer.
See you in the morning with more from Lizzie. Unitl then…
