Dark Magic and Cohen

Cohen COVER watermarkCohen has a cover! (Finally)

I’ve been tossing ideas around for a long time. It makes me happy to be able to look at it and know it’s off my list of to-dos. He’s almost ready to graduate to edits. Here’s to hoping I can get him a buddy on #CPMatch viaTwitter.

Cohen © 2017 Elysia L. Strife

Kicked out of Skyfire magic school for nearly killing another student, Cohen’s powers stripped, banned from practicing, he must relearn what it means to be human: vulnerable and alone. Taking a job in a small mining town, occupied by more than the superstitious, he finds shelter in an abandoned mansion with it’s own secrets. A familiar tapestry, a girl he can’t take his eyes off, and a panicked call from his brothers still on Skyfire start twisting his life into a magical knot of fate.

Stocking Stuffers for Kids

IMG_2630Kids already love this little book. I’ve even been asked to read it to students back home. If you need a stocking stuffer or just a cute holiday read for young kids, A Wet Nose Christmas on Amazonis perfect.

It’s paperback and fits inside a stocking, and at $6.99 costs less than the other kids’ books I just picked up at Walmart. IMG_0023

If you prefer digital formats, it’s available for Kindle as well at $1.99.

It’s hand drawn and my first children’s book. I would love your feedback!

The next books are being completed in a digital paint program so they will be full-page images. I can’t wait!

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Wildfire Finally Has a Cover

front cover wildfire watermarkWildfire, book 2 in my Embers on Ice series, is in progress. I guess I just can’t stop thinking about Christmas. 🙂

Here’s a hint:

As Matt and Orion’s love grows, so does the trouble brewing in their little town.
With the summer fire season quickly approaching and Matt headed back to the city on an emergency call, Orion is confronted with a past that doesn’t want to stay where it belongs.
This time, she’s fighting back.
But at what cost?

As always, I designed the cover, so if you see something please let me know! I still wonder how things look from one screen to another.

Thanks and Best Wishes!

Cover Circus

Zedger front Cover watermarkSpent many long hours searching for images and finally settled on this for Zedger. She’s done and waiting in the growing lineup for edits.

A Scifi/cyberpunk novel, Zedger starts off the Lucid Genesis series following a young female Commander and the army she didn’t know she had under her control.

For more info check out my In Progress page.

Feedback on the design would be most helpful! I’m not a graphic designer, just running Photoshop that’s about 15 years old… lol

Thanks and Best Wishes!

New Cover: Lost Souls

Lost Souls front cover copyI’ve been on a Shutterstock kick. Thought I’d show you what I did this morning.

So many wonderful, talented artists out there… I wish I could create art like you. But, hey, you need customers too! 🙂

Lost Souls is the second book in the Infinite Spark Series, following Stellar Fusion, my first self-published novel. I’m tying up the loose ends now and then it will be on to edits!

I’d appreciate any feedback you have so I know what to work on for the next cover!
