Meet Me at Midnight

Posted August 12, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 2 Comments

A little experiment… Have you ever wondered what would happen if the characters in a book made different choices? If the heroine went with the safe option rather than risking everything? I’m as guilty as anyone about second-guessing my decisions and freaking out in case I made the wrong one, but I also believe that […]

So, with two weeks to go until Ultraviolet, what are the guys at Blackwood getting up to? Here are a few hints… James vs. Black Black vs. Nick Nick vs. Emmy Diamond vs. Black Emmy vs. Bradley Dan vs. Emmy   And if you’d like to order the book, here are the links:         […]

An interview with Emmy and Sofia

Posted March 29, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 5 Comments

So, today I’m visiting Riverley to chat with Emmy and Sofia. Bradley’s complaining about the smell of paint, Lucy’s sitting on my foot, and Kitty’s sprawled out on the rug, snoring. Just another day in the Black household. Emmy: Chocolate eclair? Fresh from Paris this morning. EN: Don’t mind if I do. So, where did […]

Why I wrote the Blackwood Elements Series

Why I wrote the Blackwood Elements Series

Posted March 19, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 13 Comments

Originally, I planned to write two series for Blackwood – Blackwood Security, set mainly in the United States, and Blackwood UK, set in… You’ve guessed it, the UK (that’ll be coming in the summer). But I got a few ideas for stories that didn’t fit within those series, in terms of timeline, in terms of […]

Blackwood Reading Order

Posted January 29, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 7 Comments

A few people have asked me for the reading order for my Blackwood books, so I thought I’d put it together in a post. This is the timeline for the books, but the three series can be read independently of each other. All of the novels/novellas are standalones except the first three “Black” books, which […]

Today, I thought I’d stop by Riverley Hall and ask everyone’s favourite personal assistant a few questions. I’ve wanted to have a chat with him for a while, but it’s been hard to track down a man as busy as Bradley… EN: Have you got a few minutes? Bradley: How many is a few? There’s […]

Olivia, the female lead in my latest work-in-progress, loves to cook, as does Georgia in Gray is my Heart, so I thought I’d add a few of their recipes to my blog. I can just imagine them cooking these cakes for Nye, Xavier, and the rest of the Blackwood team! WARNING: This recipe makes A […]

An interview with Emmy and Black – Part 1

Posted October 5, 2016 by Elise in Blackwood / 25 Comments

Today, Emmy and Black are here to answer your questions, and maybe give a few hints of things to come in the Blackwood series… EN: So, why a security company? Black: *Shrugs* Figured I should do something I was good at. Nate thought the same way. EN: You didn’t consider something a little less dangerous? […]

Why I give a fuck

Why I give a fuck

Posted September 23, 2016 by Elise in Blackwood, Writing / 20 Comments

The other day, I was reading my reviews on Amazon (I know, I know—I should avoid them, but they’re just there), and one stood out that got me thinking: I did enjoy the book, but there was far too much use of the f word. This word was overdone and for me, it popped up […]
