Get Lost With Elle James!

Folks, help me welcome back Elle James! Elle has joined us
today with a few treats up her sleeve. First, let's find out
more about the lady herself.

BIO
Elle James aka Myla Jackson spent twenty years livin' and lovin' in South Texas, ranching horses, cattle, goats, ostriches and emus. A former IT professional, Elle is proud to be writing full-time, penning, sassy western romances, intrigues and paranormal adventures that keep her readers on the edge of their seats. She has 31 works with Harlequin, self published works under pen name Elle James, over 40 works with other publishers including Samhain, Elloras' Cave, Kensington and Avon and 18 works self-published under pen name Myla Jackson. Now living in northwest Arkansas, she isn't wrangling cattle, she's wrangling her muses, a malti-poo and yorkie. When she's not at her computer, she's traveling, out snow-skiing, boating, or riding her ATV, dreaming up new stories.


 
AND NOW, THE STORY...
 THE WITCH'S INITIATION
 
Chicago's top undercover cop, Cal Black, has faced his share of danger, but he's never tangled with the paranormal…until now. His mission is simple: to investigate the disappearance of a sorority girl from a private college. But there are two complications: the girl's a witch. And her sister is the enchantress who broke his heart.
Deme Chattox isn't looking for a man. Especially a bad boy like Cal, even though every inch of her body remembers the magic of his touch. What she is looking for is her little sister…and Deme is determined to find her without Cal's expertise. The other Chattox sisters—and their mystical powers—are all the help she needs. That is, until they unearth a terrifying secret buried deep underground—and Deme finds herself possessed by a desire that threatens to destroy her.

INTERVIEW WITH THE HERO - CAL BLACK
Q: What made you take a position on the Special Paranormal Investigation Team?
Cal: I'm a detective. Chicago is my home. I want to make it a safe place for people to live. If chasing down strange stuff is what it takes, I'm on it.
Q: I understand you own a truck and a motorcycle? Which do you prefer?
Cal: (grinning) Depends on the weather. Chicago isn't called the windy city for nothing. However, I do love my Harley in the warmer weather.
Q: Do you believe in magic?
Cal: (taking a deep breath and letting it out slowly) I have to admit, I didn't, at first. But there's some really strange stuff going on down at the college. If you'll excuse me, I'm on my way there now to check it out. (rises from his seat)
Q: One last question...What is your relationship status with Ms. Deme Chattox?
Cal: (running a hand through his hair, he shakes his head) Beats me. Ask her. All I know is she makes me crazy. One minute I'm done with her, the next I'm kissin' her like there's no tomorrow.
 
AND NOW, ELLE IN HER OWN WORDS...
In writing THE WITCH'S INITIATION, I wanted to start a new series about five sister witches, each with a talent specific to their point on the pentagram. Deme Chattox is the oldest of the sisters and Earth is her balance. She can manipulate plants and taste earth for trouble. Aegina (Gina) Chattox's balance is water. She can communicate with fish, call up rain clouds and is happiest by the sea or in big bodies of water. For Brigid Chattox, her balance is Fire. She's hot tempered, can throw fire balls and has tiny dragonflies a her helpers. Selene Chattox's balance is Spirit, serenity is her goal. She can sense feelings of others, both good and malevolent. And last but not least is the youngest, Aurai Chattox whose balance is Wind.
 
The first book THE WITCH'S INITIATION takes Deme through a journey to find her sister, the creature who has taken her hostage and a love that can accept her for what she is. I've written a novella THE WITCH'S SEDUCTION following Deme past the first story into solving another Chicago paranormal case and I'll be writing yet another Deme novella in March that will take Deme and Cal to NYC. Then I start work on Selene's story tentatively called THE BEAST. I love that the cases they solve and the creatures they meet bring Chicago and the underworld alive. It's not just about vampires and shapeshifters. You'll see other creepy creatures, some you'll want disposed of and some you'll fall in love with.
 
 
HERE ARE SOME OTHER CURRENT RELEASES...
 
THE WITCH'S SEDUCTION
Harlequin Nocturne Cravings
Deme Chattox is eager to return home and start her new job on the Chicago PD's paranormal task force. As a witch, she's got special insight into the city's supernatural underworld. And as an added bonus, her partner is also her lover, Cal Black.
Deme can't wait to pick up where their off-the-charts chemistry left off, but she senses a change in Cal. Though the sex is hotter than ever, she doesn't need mystical powers to know there's something he's not telling her. Something that threatens their budding relationship, and their latest case…
   
Demon's Embrace
Harlequin Nocturne Cravings
As part of the NYPD's special taskforce, Agent Katya Danske cleans up the mess when creatures of the night run amok. But lately she's been distracted by one paranorm in particular: her wickedly sexy partner, Blaise Michaels. For the sake of her professional reputation, Katya should end the affair with the demon co-worker—if only her body didn't crave his touch so deeply….
Then a mysterious amulet falls into her hands, and Katya becomes the target of a vengeful demon who will stop at nothing to get it back. When she begins to exhibit unexplained powers, Katya needs Blaise more than ever to help her control the energy—and to face up to a truth she never could have imagined.

  3. GOOD MORNING ELLE and welcome back to GLIAS.

    OH WOW...so many titles and so little time. How did you get extra hours in your day? I guess that's what I need --a spell to either have more of me than once, or extend time.
