Stuck With a Cowboy for Christmas

Elysia Lumen Strife's Chapter Reads & Indie Pub Discussions

Wildfire, Book 2 of Embers on Ice
Orion’s fighting back, but at what cost? As Matt and Orion’s love grows, so does the trouble brewing in their little Montana town. Orion’s insufferable ex has left, but not without one final warning: a bullet stashed in her coat pocket, stamped with a B. Matt, her new interest, says he’ll protect her. But Matt doesn’t know what Boone is capable of. With Orion’s summer fire season approaching and Matt headed back to the city on an emergency call, Orion, alone, must face a past that doesn’t want to stay where it belongs. While trapped as a pawn in a black market scheme, Orion uncovers the reason for the recent violent disturbances of her peaceful home in the mountains. Orion will do anything to see justice served and peace preserved. She hopes Matt can forgive her for the choices she makes. Can Orion save Christmas from those who wish to destroy everything the season stands for? And will Matt be able to break free of his old ways and have faith in love again? Holiday, Romantic Suspense

Stellar Fusion: Infinite Spark Series (Book 1) [A practice read by the author]
If you enjoy a blend of tech and the supernatural, torture and love, alien empires and apocalyptic planets, this series is for you. This is my first published book and my first podcast attempt. Please bear with me as I learn to read chapters aloud and transition to extroversion. I am practicing before I create paid audiobooks. Thanks for your patience! I hope you enjoy the content.  If you want more information on my books or would like to sign up to receive free ARC and Beta copies of books before they're published, go to Book synopsis: This isn't the first invasion. This time, they’re taking everything… and everyone. Earth, still patching itself together from the 300 Years War, is severely unprepared and outnumbered when the invasion hits. Their only hope is a small team of soldiers on a suicide mission to infiltrate the mothership and relay critical defense information home. The last survivor of the first encounter can't explain why she knows what she does. Sergeant Nakio Atana is the Universal Protectors’ elite assassin and holds within a spark of unimaginable power. But a daring escape from an enemy ship knocked the first fifteen years of her life into darkness, leaving her with only inexplicable apathy and technical knowledge beyond Earth’s evolution. What she is can change their future. Sergeant Bennett must guard her with his life. Together, Atana and Bennett lead the team in hopes her knowledge, and his crew’s skills, will render them a soft spot in the alien armor. What they find when they reach the mothership is entirely unexpected. The truth they uncover will challenge the code they live by and their concepts of the power within.

E L Strife’s Self-pub Tips
If you've ever wanted to write and publish a book of your own, this is great resource for how to get started.  Many of the solutions I provide are DIY methods because I like control and not spending money on things I can do myself for free. But I'll also discuss other pros to being Indie. I've found myself talking to many people over the last few years who are working on their first book. They often have the same questions. I'll discuss those  here. I'm currently building online courses I hope will help give better visual instruction for those interested in it without the cost. This podcast will touch on a lot of those courses. If you have any questions or recommendations for content, feel free to message me. I hope you are well and safe.
