This week, we have Elizabeth Noble, answering intrusive questions and talking about her re-release, Code Name Jack Rabbit! Hi Elizabeth!
Hello, thank you so much, Ally for having me here today! My next book, Code Name Jack Rabbit, book one of The Vampire Guard will be re-released into the world tomorrow. Today kicks off the blog tour and giveaway. I hope your readers enjoy this peek into my world.
First question then! What started you writing?
I honestly couldn’t say. For as long as I can remember I’ve been a storyteller in both the spoken and written word. I feel I can’t not write, I’d probably explode…lol Even if I didn’t write for publication, I’d write for myself. Writing is something that is as natural and necessary to me as breathing.
Where do you write? Do you have a special place?
I converted a spare room in my house to an office. I call it my fangirl room since I keep all my movie/tv related art and merchandise in there. It’s also where most of my bookshelves are.
Weather permitting, I head outside to my patio—aka my outdoor office—to write. I love sitting outside, it’s conducive to getting more words on the page, or screen.
What do you like to read?
I read all sorts of things. In fiction I enjoy MM, of course, action adventure, scifi and urban fantasy. I also read a fair bit of non-fiction, mainly the earth sciences and books based on the history of dogs.
Writing is an intrinsically solo occupation. Do you belong to any groups or associations, either online or in the ‘real’ world? How does that work for you?
I belong to a few online groups via Facebook. They’re more dedicated to support, where members can ask questions, get technical support and publishing advice.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
I have a dog, Finn. We participate in Obedience and Rally Obedience, so there’s a fair amount of practice and training involved. I’m also a member of a training club and do volunteer work through them.
My full-time job in a veterinary practice takes up a large part of my days and I’m always looking for new shows and movies. I LOVE Netflix, and Prime and Hulu and CBS…lol
In the warmer months I enjoy working in my garden which never looks as good as what I imagine in my head. Clearly, landscape architecture isn’t my calling.
Tell me a little bit about your most recent release. What gave you the idea for it? How long did it take to write? What did you enjoy about writing it? What did you hate?
Code Name Jack Rabbit has gone through some rewrites and it’s been re-edited. While not a romance, there are romantic sub-plots. It is, however, filled with espionage, spyfi and supernatural beings.
I love my paranormal romance characters and wanted to put them into a more urban fantasy, less romance, type of series. My favorite stories in any medium are those with action, intrigue, spies and high-tech toys. I had the idea to throw my characters into a different type of situation. Vampires and werewolves have such wonder, unique supernatural powers they’re like superheroes to me. Superheroes that would make amazing spies!
The most fun about writing this series is coming up with all the high-techy toys and then adapting them for use to a group of ultra-secret society spies. The possibilities are endless.
Thank you so much for coming to talk to us today! Elizabeth has a Rafflecopter draw going, so please do pop on over to sign up. And read on to learn all about Code Name Jack Rabbit!
Code Name Jack Rabbit (book 1 of The Vampire Guard)
Vampires and werewolves live long lives. The Sleepless City saga might have ended but the story continues…
Welcome to the Vampire Guard, where legend and myth meet science and technology.
Vampires make the best spies. Throw a smart-mouthed werewolf in with three vampires, mix well, and The Vampire Guard’s newest team is bound to become one of their greatest assets. Super spies with a full range of skills. Warrior, hacker, thief, and scientist. They get in, do the job and get out before the bad guys ever know what hit them.
Forge, Blair, Declan, and Lucas are thrust into the world of high-tech spies and top-secret espionage conspiracies. Recruited into the world’s most elite and secret organization with one singular mission. Protect those who can’t defend themselves from ruin.
Life becomes complicated when an impending Presidential visit to their town, Boggslake, throws them headlong into the world of the vampires and werewolves of the Vampire Guard. Very quickly they uncover and confront a werewolf terrorist organization known as the Qiguan.
Together they must thwart an assassination attempt on the open waters of Lake Superior while tracking a previously unknown biological weapon controlled by the Qiguan—a weapon which may very well mean death for one of them.
Mystery, action, chills, and thrills spiced with romance and desire. ELIZABETH NOBLE lives by the adage “I can’t not write.” She doesn’t remember a time when she didn’t make up stories and eventually she learned how to put words on a page. Those words turned into books and fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M fiction. A part of every day is spent living in worlds she created that are filled with intrigue and espionage. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural.
When she’s not chronicling the adventures of her many characters, Elizabeth is a veterinary nurse living in her native Cleveland, Ohio. She has three grown children and now happily shares her little, brick house with a spunky Cardigan Welsh Corgi and his sidekick, tabby cat. Elizabeth is a fan of baseball, basketball (go Cavs and Cleveland Baseball) and gardening. She can often be found working in her ‘outside office’ listening to classic rock and plotter her next novel waiting for it to be dark enough to gaze at the stars.
Elizabeth has received a number of amateur writing awards. Since being published, several of her novels have received Honorable Mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Jewel Cave was a runner-up in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category in the 2015 Rainbow Awards. Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.
