Hi, my name is Lillie J. Roberts. I'm a wife and mom to three with a wild Westie who is sure he's human too.
I'm a new author here with Crimson Frost Books / Midnight Frost Books as well and I couldn't be happier! Before I submitted with CFB/MFB, I investigated what kind of publisher they were going to be. I mean, that's just smart business, and while writing is an art and a big part of my life, getting a book published is a business. Through my investigations, I discovered that Patricia Bates and Ciara Lake were not only authors themselves, but astute business women. I knew that it was going to be an awesome adventure, and that's how I found myself here, happy to help support a new publisher and happy to be a part of their venture.
Now that I'm here, I've found myself in the company of some wonderful authors. Tara Mills (http://www.taramillsromance.com) and Jane Hunt (www.jolliffe01.com/) are a just couple of the new authors now part of the CFB/MFB family and great story tellers. If you have a chance, check out their websites, pick up one of their books. It's going to be a good, satisfying read that will leave you asking for more. I know, I've had the opportunity to check out a few of the books coming from CFB, and I'm waiting for more. :)
That leaves me to talk a little about myself. I've written my whole life, but didn't even think about having something published until I entered a flash fiction contest and received an honorable mention, and I was competing with real authors who already had books published! I was shocked! That led me to write my first book, which seems like a long time ago now. I've had a personal blog for several years, I love reviewing books at Tink's Place (http://myblog2point0.blogspot.com/) and my author website is at Lillie J. Roberts (http://lilliejroberts.wordpress.com/) where you can find out more about what I've got going on in my writer's life. I can also be found on facebook (I'm addicted) @ Lillie J. Roberts-Dottie Taylor (https://www.facebook.com/LillieJRoberts). I'm also on Twitter @ Lillie J. Roberts/Dottie Taylor.
My new book, Soul Fire, will be coming out from the YA/Fantasy imprint of Crimson Frost Books, Midnight Frost Books. It's the first YA book I've written, but it won't be the last. It was too much fun writing it.
Here's a little about the story:
Soul Fire tells Rena Langley's story.
Rena's always suffered from nightmares, but this summer, the nightmares are worse than ever before, monsters fill her dreams. Into her life walks Petrov DeForest, tall, dark, and oh so cute with amazing blue eyes, and he claims to know the reasons for the nightmares. Rena's destiny is as the Soul Seeker, reborn throughout time and an Earthbound soul to help the lost. The monsters from her nightmares are real, the Soul Eaters, they exist on the plane of Reflection, but have crossed to the Earthbound plane in a bid for her soul energy. But, she can bring an end to monsters, the Soul Eaters, if she can learn to control her ability, her Soul Fire. If she can't, the monsters will win again. With the help of Petrov, her German shepherd named Random, and detective Ben Foster, they seek out those who hope to take her and those close to her. Can they survive the monsters? Or will this lifetime end like so many have before?
Patricia and I appreciate your blog entry and we look forward to seeing Soul Fire Published.
Thanks for Reading.
Celeste and Patricia
