Mini Author Interview + Guest Post:

Q: What's your favorite part of being a writer?

EC: My readers.  Hands down, it's the readers.  I get emails and messages every day from devoted fans, and I can't express how much that means to me.  There are readers out there who've set up book blogs just because they were so excited about my books, people who make it a point to promote my books on their Facebook pages and Twitter just because they want to share the reader-love, and whole families who are reading my series and discussing them at dinner.  It just blows my mind that people would be so generous and so involved in my made-up worlds.  Recently I had a fan dress as one of my characters at a comic con event.  I also occasionally get a very heart-warming message about how my writing has changed someone's life - caused them to finally start reading or to go to college.  To me, that's the sign of a life well-lived - that I've somehow inspired another person to reach for something they want in life that they thought they didn't have a chance at having before.

Q: What books do you have in the works right now?

EC: All kinds of good stuff!  I'm so excited to get them out to readers.  Here's the NA Romance line-up for June, July, and August: Shine Not Burn, By Degrees, and Don't Make Me Beautiful, and then a 3-book series that will be released on surprise dates this year: Rebel, Hellion, and Trouble.  Links to all of them on Goodreads here:

Q: You have a lot of novels in the urban fantasy genre.  What interested you in writing romances?

EC: Romances were my first love.  Well … aside from Disney fairy tales.  But then again, those are all romances aren't they?  They've got misunderstood heroines - beaten down by others - who are looking for love and understanding, finally finding it in the hands of a guy on horseback.  I've read hundreds of romances in my time, from every publisher out there, including indie authors of course.  It doesn't matter how many I read, I always want more.  Since I love them as a reader, I really wanted to try my hand as a writer in the genre.  I have so many romance stories simmering in my brain right now, at this point, it's like therapy just getting them out of there.  I have 6 romances planned for the rest of the year and lots more for 2014.  I'm going to be very busy.  But I'm happy being busy because it's very important to me that I keep hunger readers fed.  I live to write for voracious readers.

Q:  What's the most important element in a romance in your opinion?

EC:  A sexy guy.  Seriously, he just needs to be sexy as hell, and that doesn't mean sexy can't come in different packages.  For example, in the film My Big Fat Greek Wedding, the MC, Ian, is very understated and shy, but man, he rocked my world.  He reminds me a lot of my husband, actually.  On the other hand you have your angsty fighters ... guys who you'd never let into your world in real life but who are safe to fall for in books.  Travis from Beautiful Disaster comes to mind. Boy, did he cause a lot of fuss in the reader world!  Chemistry comes in all kinds of packages, which is awesome, but the chemistry has to be there or the book falls flat for me.

And finally, if you had the opportunity to write a letter to your teen self what would you say?

Dear Elle.  

I know right now you think life pretty much sucks and that you're never able to do what you want the way you want to, and your parents don't understand what you're going through and people at school suck and lots of kids in class are jerks.  And I know that you feel like things are always going to be this way and that right now is the most important time of your life and that since it's not going right, it sometimes feels like life is too hard to deal with.  But know this: these days in high school are just a tiny blip in the span of your life, filled with nasty but powerful hormones that make everything seem worse than it is.  Soon you'll leave high school and see the rest of the world and learn that there are amazing people out there who will appreciate who you are, exactly as you are - you won't have to change to please them.  You'll find out that the popular kids who shunned you aren't nearly as well-prepared for the world as you are and will be in a bad place as a result (ha! revenge!).  And the beauty that you've only just begun to see in yourself will increase a thousandfold and you will have many, many future memories of love, laughter, and wonderful moments that you wouldn't trade for the world.  So hang on, there's a lot of really cool stuff coming.  And the best part is, all the shit you're going through now is going to make you a kickass adult who can write really cool books about the hard parts of growing up with complete accuracy and believability.  People with perfect lives grow up to be really boring.  You will never be boring.
