I have New Book Excitement.
It’s no big secret to anyone who knows how I work that I’m not a big fan of writing the opening scene. Sometimes the opening comes to me – bam! – and I know immediately how a book will start (as was the case with STOLEN FURY). Other times I seem to rewrite an opening 100 times or more before I find the one that works (as I did with STOLEN HEAT). (July 28, 2009) This time around, working on the 2nd paranormal (working title: DECEIVED), it’s been one of those – bam! … Read more »
Just got this in my inbox:
Six years ago Katherine Meyer knew exactly where her life was going. She was finishing up her time in Cairo, and getting ready to write her dissertation for her doctorate in Egyptology; then Pete came into her life.
Anger, pain, and betrayal all vie for attention within Peter Kauffman’s brain, but his heart can only grasp onto one fact: Kat is alive, unbelievably and blessedly alive. Her death in a car bombing in Cairo six years ago was the most crushing time in his life, but it was also the catalyst to clean up … Read more »
Yup, that’s me. Big ol’ blog slacker. Sorry to be so MIA. In my defense I’ve been busy. Not like the rest of the world isn’t busy, too, but…ya know how it goes. LOL
So what have I been up to? Let’s see…Page proofs for STOLEN HEAT are done and out the door. Woohoo! I’ve been immersed in those the last week.
Revisions on MARKED are done, and the ms is off to an awesome NYT Bestselling author who agreed to read and blurb it for me. I hope she likes it. (*Says Elisabeth while she chews her fingernails down … Read more »

I’ve been swamped this week with this and that, but I have a few things to share:
1) Are you following … Read more »
1. I’m knee-deep in copy edits for STOLEN HEAT. So this is going to be a short, catch-up post.
2. I have HAD it with Adobe. They have, without a doubt, the WORST customer service on the planet. It’s a wonder I have any eyebrows left.
3. I need some help for a workshop I’m giving next week. If you are a published author (and want some free promo in front of a roomful of 200 writers), send me a .jpg of your cover and answers to the following questions by Friday, 1.30.09 to elisabeth (at) elisabethnaughton (dot) com:… Read more »
My editor sent me the final cover for STOLEN HEAT (book 2 in the Stolen series) this morning.
Antiquities dealer Peter Kauffman walked a fine line between clean and corrupt for years. And then he met the woman who changed his life—Egyptologist Katherine Meyer. Their love affair burned white-hot in Egypt, until the day Pete’s lies and half-truths caught up with him. After that, their relationship imploded, Kat walked out, and before Pete could find her to make things right, he heard she’d died in a car bomb.
Six years later, the woman Pete thought he’d lost for good is … Read more »
