Lost in your time

Rock star or husband – which would you choose?

Ah, the dangers of the internet! We’ve all been warned, but do we take notice?

When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star…A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.

“Whether our decisions in life end in delight, or even sometimes with regret, we have all been ‘one click away’ from making a choice in our lives that sets a course in motion. Elle Amberley has nailed it, and returns with her gripping characters and kaleidoscopic prose in her new novel, Lost in Your Time. Her talent to knit raw emotion, tears and even laughter, flows straight off the pages and into reader’s hearts. Elle is a gem of an author, and friend.” 
Jen Tucker, author (The Day I Wore my Panties Inside Out)

“Sexy with a Dose of Smiles. Even in the most dire of health conditions, Natasha finds a way to find humour, love and kindness. And in this latest chapter of her life, Matthieu, a sexy French rock star, takes notice. ‘Forever may not be long enough.’ he says and it’s the way I feel about this book. Why must your books end, Elle Amberley? Thank you for enchanting us with characters who feel real enough to touch… and to love.“

Ravens PIck Me Up. Elle Amberley’s Nine for the Week

A while back I was interviewed on Raven’s Ramblings. If you’ve missed it, here’s another chance to read it.

So today, we welcome Elle Amberley to our mid-week pick me up. The naughty nine we all want to know the answers to.
This week’s naughty nine have a Bohemian twist.
  • We’ll get this one over first, tell us a little bit about yourself.
         I’m a mum first, I homeschool my children, and I’m a writer, a messy one who doesn’t fit into neat little boxes. I like switching genres and I’m a bohemian at heart. Having lived in so many countries makes it hard to settle anywhere. Home is wherever we’re happy and together.
  •  Thanks, now we can probe a bit more. What are you writing at the moment? Going to share any of it with us? 
       Lol, I’m finishing my Paris based novel, due out in Spring 2012, writing short stories, a bit darker than my recent book, probably more like my Literary novels. I also write poems and articles, I can’t help reacting sometimes when I see the news. My big mouth translates into furious articles, although they have been described as heartfelt so I’ll stick with that.
  •  How long have you been writing?      I don’t remember a time I was not writing. I was the annoying kid who wrote and rewrote essays, changing bits until the very last minute.
  •  What is your favorite genre? To write or read.
 I don’t really have one because I have eclectic tastes. It would probably easier to tell you what I don’t like. I’m not a sci-fi fan for example. That said I recently picked up a book, loved it until I got to page ten or something and witches came in to play. I was puzzled, nearly put the book down, then persevered and absolutely loved it.
I think my favourite genre to write is whatever I happen to be writing at the time.
  • Where do you prefer to write? What do you wear? And eat? (OK, I know this is cheating as well, but we need all the gen in our naughty nine)
I write almost everywhere, in the car, while I wait for my children, at the restaurant. I even wrote in the shower once…A fan heard I was often struck by inspiration while taking a shower and had these special pens sent out. Amazing, and a warning to mind what you said in interviews.
I often write in bed in the middle of the night when everything is quiet. So that answers your next question, there’s a photo of me writing in bed taken by my husband on my blog.
I often starve myself because I forget to eat so my long suffering husband brings me coffee and apple cake or other goodies.
  •    So three things you love
My children and my husband but I guess they’re not things.
I love books, music and playing with my children.
  • Three you don’t Injustice, cruelty and anything nasty.
  • Three things you would like to happen in the next three years? Feel free to add to the three things you don’t,
Get my health back into shape, my children to be happy and carry on writing.
That’s it painless eh? Thanks for dropping by and giving us a peek into your life. Feel free to add any links to blogs websites etc so we can all find out what you are up to.
Thanks again, so lovely to meet you and get to know your blog. Looking forward to having you on mine. Best wishes.

Lost in your time

Ah, the dangers of the internet! We’ve all been warned, but do we take notice?
When Natasha clicks on a link, her whole life is turned upside down. A flash from the past, a chance meeting with a gorgeous French rock star…
A chance to start over and forget the pain and misery from the last two years.
But can Natasha let go? Will she accept this new twist in her life?

Guesting on the RNA blog

Today I’m featured on the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s blog. Why don’t you grab a coffee and read all about it?

 

Our guest today is Elle Amberley. Not a member of the RNA but a prolific author who writes Women’s Fiction, Literary, short stories and features. Her publisher tells me that Elle’s particular strength is writing positive stories with a strong theme of being lost and finding yourself again. Having overcome many obstacles in her life, including a very difficult childhood, she chose to reconstruct her life. Rather than writing a memoir like many abuse victims she prefers to marry fiction with some of her own experiences.

  • The craft tip that helped me the most.
  • Whether I’m a plotter or a panster.
  • What I think about ebooks.
  • What my latest work in progress is.
