Hi Elianne, thanks so much for joining me on the NNP blog! I will try not to take up too much of your time, but lets tell our readers a bit about you, okay? *smiles*
Thank you so much for having me today, Gina. It’s always a pleasure.

How long have you been a writer and how did you get into writing?
I’ve been writing for about four years now. Wow, time really has flown. I’ve only been published for a bit over a year though. The rest of the time was spent learning how to get those words onto the pages and making them pretty for all the readers.

Are you a full time author?
I wish. No, at this point, I’m still holding on to a full time job as a nurse. I’ll be honest and say that my dream is to write full time, and with the way things are going, I’m really hoping that this will be my reality sooner rather than later.

What do you do when you don’t write?
Work and family, mainly. I’m an avid reader. I always have a book or ten started. I read what I love, which is paranormal romance, but I also read other genres, some true stories, some urban fantasy, I read it all… except horror. I’m too much of a chicken to read horror. And don’t even ask me to watch a movie about demonic possession. *shudder*

What is the title of your inclusion in Beyond the Veil? How did you come up with the idea for your book?
My Story is called Bump in the Night. The idea itself came from one of my chatting sessions with one of my BFF authors, Sadie Haller. We were goofing around one night and decided that since we were only moderately insane with deadlines and commitments for the next few months that it would be fun to put together a boxed set of stories that all revolved in some way or form around Halloween. The one criteria for inclusion in the set was that it had to have at least ONE Halloween element, so black cat, witch, ghost… you get the idea. Now, being the person that I am, I decided to throw in a few others. Bump in the Night actually has a ghost, a witch, a demon, a werewolf, and angel, and of course, goblins. You can’t have Halloween without goblins.

How did you conduct your research for Bump in the Night?
There wasn’t a whole lot of research to be done for this one since it’s mostly a make believe world, but I did look up some pictures on Pinterest to get inspiration and get a better visual idea of the creatures I was writing about. Here’s the link if you want to have a look. Now, keep in mind, these pins are less romantic are most beastly. ;)  https://www.pinterest.com/elianneadams/deadly-whispers/

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing for you?
The best part of writing has to be the story telling. I mean, I get to make stuff up and then tear it all down again. Add in the fact that there are sexy as sin heroes added to the mix, and I’m a happy author. The worst part is for me is trying to get all the things that need to get done... done. Writing is fun, and most of the other aspects are too, but many hours must be spent at the computer to make all that magic happen, and sometimes, that’s a challenge.

What inspires you to write?
There are so many things that inspire me to write. Sometimes it’s something as simple as watching a couple interact in real life. Whether they’re laughing, crying, or scowling, there’s always a story behind it, and my imagination takes flight. Other than that, goofing around with my author friends in chat usually sparks some unusual ideas. Most of them don’t make it to the page, but it’s great fun and gets the creative juices flowing.

Is there a particular author who inspires you?
I have to pick one?? Geez, okay, that’s tough. At the risk of sounding like a “brown noser”—do people actually use that term anymore?—I’m going to say our very own interviewer, Gina Kincade. Before people start rolling their eyes at me, I’ll tell you guys why I chose Gina. For one, she’s an amazing author. I know you’ve all read her books and know exactly what I’m talking about, so there’s no denying it. For another, she’s just one of the most down to earth, genuine, caring people I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with. She is a hard working woman, who will do just about anything to help another author out. Seriously, there needs to be more people like Gina on this planet. In a world where people are self-absorbed and will crush people on their way to the top, Gina reaches down and helps the person behind her to climb higher. I have much respect for this woman. This is the kind of author I strive to be, and the kind of person I hope that I am in my everyday life.

*blushes* Oh my goodness, Elianne. I...wow...I don't even know what to say. 
*brushes tears from her eyes, sniffles, and leans over to give Elianne a huge hug*
You're pretty amazing yourself, lady! *smiles and fans face* Whew! Believe me, hun, I am not 'all that' in my opinion, but I do really appreciate you saying so. Okay, enough of that. 
*hands Elianne a long, thick, white envelope, and winks*
Back to you. 

What would your friends say is your best quality?
Ugh, I hate talking about myself. Can’t I just keep talking about how fabulous Gina is?

Haha, no. *grins*
No? Okay, well, I think my friends would consider me a hard worker, and someone who is very determined. I hold a full time job, a part time job (very part time, and only for a few months out of the year—but it’s a passion of mine to teach, so I refuse to give it up even though I’m really too busy to keep doing it. I’m also a mother of three, and a wife… and I write. Pretty much any time I’m not working or doing things for my family, I’m at my computer writing. So yeah, I think they’d consider me a driven, hardworking kind of person.

Are reader reviews important to you?
Reader reviews are important. They really are. The more reviews you have, the better. Even though I’ve never met a single one of them, I absolutely adore my review team. Good or bad, the words of the readers carry a lot of weight with the people who are out there browsing the virtual book aisles. So thank you to all of you who are out there and take the time to put your thoughts together and post them to the vendor sites and to Goodreads. You make a difference!

Tell us about your other books?
I currently have two series out. The Return to Avalore series, which is set in a magical place called Avalore. The series starts with a woman who is running for her life from creatures that most humans have no clue even exist. I’ll admit that my stories are a bit grittier than some romances out there, but the romance (and sexy times) are all there for the readers to enjoy. The people of Avalore consist of three major shifter species, dragon, gryphon, and phoenixes. If you like your males to be Alpha… this set is for you.
My other series is the Dragon Blood series. This one features nothing but dragon shifters. And yes, the men are super sexy and powerful, but then, so are the women. This series is a novella series, so they are meant to be read and enjoyed more quickly. Book four in this series is coming out soon, so if you want to catch up on the series before it does, then now’s the time.

If you could share one thing about yourself you would like our readers to know, what would it be?
It would be that I love connecting with readers. I really do. I love getting messages on Facebook, getting e-mails, a message on Twitter… anything. I try really hard to reply to each and every one of them. If I don’t, it’s not intentionally, so message again! I’ll get them and respond.

Where can readers find your works, do you have a blog or website?
All of my books can be found here, and are available in KU (for now). http://www.amazon.com/Elianne-Adams/e/B00MFR2SZG
Although my website is under construction, I can be found here www.elianneadams.com. The new site is in the works and will up and running soon.

Where else might readers contact you or follow your everyday writing journey?
Like I mentioned, I love hearing from readers, so sign up, follow… whatever. I’d be happy to hear from you!

Thank you so much for joining us today, Elianne. It's been a true pleasure working with you on Beyond the Veil. I am sure readers will fully enjoy Bump in the Night.
We are going to leave them with a small tease to get them started, care to give us something steamy? *naughty grin*
Thank you so much for interviewing me today, Gina. I really appreciate it. I was thrilled to have been invited to take part of this set, and am super excited for its  release! It’s been great working with all of you.


Bump In The Night
Excerpt

When a soft rap came at her driver’s side window, Libbie jumped and cried out. Rain poured down her window, making it impossible to see anything but a large dark shadow. She took a steadying breath before lowering the window a couple of inches.
The first thing she saw was a huge expanse of chest covered by a navy blue T-shirt that hugged every muscle. The same T-shirt she’d seen in her own kitchen earlier that morning.
“What are you doing here?”
“I’d apologize, but it would be a lie. I’m not sorry for coming.” Jay took a step back, holding his umbrella over her door so she could get out.
“You’re getting all wet,” she chided, but if she were being honest, the small act of chivalry made her heart sing just a little. His body heat wrapped around her, and she wanted to close the small distance between them. He licked his lips, then swallowed, his gaze dipping down to her mouth. A shiver rushed over her, and she took a small step closer before realizing what she was about to do.
“It’s okay. I tend to be warmer than most. I’ll dry quickly.” His nostrils flared, and his eyes flashed a shade lighter.
Libbie gasped. The shifting eye color, his heat, it made sense. “You’re a wolf, aren’t you?” Most werewolves had some magical abilities. It wasn’t quite the same as being a witch, but with the proper education, they could make most spells work for them.
He grinned at her, cocking his head to the side a little. “What gave me away?”
“Your eyes, mostly. The color lightens sometimes. I haven’t seen a werewolf in decades.” She leaned in closer, watching for his reaction.
“That happens when the wolf sees something it wants and I don’t let it have it.”
“What does it want right now?” Her heart raced, and her gaze darted to his lips again. She had a feeling she knew what the answer was, but she wanted to hear him say it.
He stepped forward, crowding her, and bent his head to her ear. “He wants me to rip all your clothes off and take you right here against your car,” he whispered before licking the tender skin of her ear.
Her nipples tightened, and her pussy clenched at his words. “Oh.” 
“I won’t do it, not here, but I want to.” He took a deep breath and stepped back. “For now, we’d better go check on our friend.”
