My writing calendar

My writing calendar

Posted December 1, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood, Writing / 8 Comments

We’re fast heading for the new year, so I figured I should probably make some attempt at getting organised (which has never been one of my strong points!). In 2017, my goal was to publish a book a month, and I’ve done that, although December’s release will be a box set rather than a new […]

The Black Trilogy Rebooted

    Scroll down for giveaway! I published my first book in July 2015, and so much has happened since then! I’ve set another fifteen books loose on the unsuspecting public, writing has become my job as well as my hobby, and the first book in my Blackwood Security series, Pitch Black, has been downloaded […]

Red Alert – Playlist

Posted September 2, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 8 Comments

I don’t usually listen to music when I write, but with Red Alert, I just couldn’t help it. Some of my favourite songs pop up in the book, so I thought I’d put together a playlist so you can listen to them too… Eva Cassidy – Autumn Leaves Red Alert – Basement Jaxx Etta James […]

Meet Me at Midnight

Meet Me at Midnight

Posted August 12, 2017 by Elise in Blackwood / 7 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 / 15 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 […]

An interview with Bradley

An interview with Bradley

Posted December 18, 2016 by Elise in Blackwood / 3 Comments

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 […]
