Let's get to know Elyssa, shall we?

If you were stuck on a deserted island, would you rather have with you a book, a banjo, a pineapple or a cinnamon scented candle with you? How would you use it?
Hi, Jackie! I’m so excited to be paired up with you on the tour. Thanks again for hosting me. I’d chose a book because I could read something while hunting down food, water, and other ways to survive.
What is a book that you secretly adore?
I have no secrets when it comes to books I adore—I will shout it out from the rooftops. Some books I currently adore are: Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh, The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand, The Derby Girl by Tamara Morgan, and Jen Frederick’s upcoming Unspoken.
If you could go back in time for one day, where would you go?
Probably the 1800s England—I would hopefully hunt down Jane Austen and have a cup of tea with her.
Which book did you have the most fun writing?
Each book I just finished seems like the most fun writing, so right now it’s STAY WITH ME, while the book I currently work on seems like the hardest book ever to write, lol.
Have you ever been to Disney World/ Land and if so what was your favorite thing to do?
I went to Disney World when I was a kid, and my favorite thing to do was to get all the characters’ autographs. (I’m not a big fan of amusement park rides, especially roller coasters!)
Which character from your books do you feel is most like you?
I think each character I write has a little bit of me in them, but I felt closest to Hailey while writing the book.
What can you tell us about any of your new books?
STAY WITH ME is about Hailey Bloom, who is a very famous rock star/actress, who leaves Hollywood and fame behind for a chance to have a real, normal life when she attends college in Vermont. While there, she meets the sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox—and her plans for no romance soon go out the window. Here’s the official blurb:

With one look, I’m his . . .

With one touch, he’s mine . . .

With one kiss, it changes everything between us . . .

I’ve been famous since I can remember. Singing, acting, dancing—I’ve done it all. The tabloids cover my every move, but I don’t want that anymore. I want to be normal, whatever that is.

When I leave Hollywood for college in Vermont, I’m on my own for the first time in my life. This is my chance to figure out who I am and what I want in life.

But it’s a lot harder than I expected. I can’t escape my image. Classes are difficult, and I’m struggling. And then there’s Caleb Fox.

Sexy, intriguing Caleb Fox.

Caleb is the one man who doesn’t want to use me. He breaks down my walls. He challenges me. He wants me. And I just don’t know if I can give him the same—or if he’ll stick around when he finds out my shameful secret that the tabloids haven’t managed to uncover.

Dating him is risky enough, but loving him could break me.

To you, what does it mean to be an Indie author?
It means a lot to me. I tried to go the traditional route but it didn’t work out, and I wondered if my dreams of being a published author would ever come true. Luckily I came across a blog post by Tammara Webber that really resonated with me, and I decided to self-publish.
Bonus: If the world was taken over by pigs, would you side with them or form a rebellion?

Always side with the pigs. I learned this after reading Animal Farm. But I probably would also secretly plot away at a rebellion. ;)
Literary good boys or bad boys? Both!
Vanilla or Chocolate? Chocolate, hands down.
Favorite Holiday? Halloween—all that candy. ;)
Cats or Dogs? Dogs.
Soul mates or Love triangles? Soul mates.
Coffee or tea? Tea.
