Author spotlight with "Wicked Leanore" Elliot

Wicked Leanore is offering 1 of ANY of her books, but this one will be different folks.Go on Amazon and look at all of her books, and pick which one you would like most, and post the book on here. Her books range from Mild to saucy, to down right burn your tongue off hott so you get to choose how....naughty you want your book to be! Just don't forget to search for Leanore Elliot, her pen name.

K.T.  Hello and welcome. I am very excited to have you here today. Why don’t we start off with a small introduction? Tell us a little about yourself.  

L.E. Oh my, you don't have that kind of time! (Chuckle) I am known as Wicked Leanore, my pen name is Leanore Elliott. (You can call me Wicked) I have been writing my whole life, but never got a chance to pursue it with Novels. I began in earnest in 2007. I now have 10 novels out and 3 more about to be published. Four publishers have signed me, and I have books under my own imprint.

K.T.  Any interesting writing quirks or stories you would like to share with my readers?

L.E. Yes, I would like to give the spotlight to Leanore. You see, she is my Muse. I share the pen name with her, my part is Elliott. Her name is from the elusive Lenore in Edgar Allen Poe's "Quote The Raven" I feel that she spins the stories and I write them down. I am just a glorified Editor! Can you call this a Quirk? Yes, most certainly, it does sound crazy, but the stories are so amazing that I truly do not feel entirely responsible for them….So, I am a bit tetched, I suppose.

K.T.  When did you realize you wanted to be a writer? What sparked the desire to pen your first novel?

L.E. The answer to this is wild as well. Believe it or not? It was a movie! Mary Poppins to be exact. At 5 years old, I saw this and my mind was opened up, it filled with colors and ideas. I started to tell stories after that.

K.T.  What genre do you write?

L.E.  Always paranormal. I just cannot seem to keep the story on the ground, so to speak. They start out normal, contemporary, and then they take that paranormal turn. I write them hot. I do have like 2, that are semi hot, but mostly it is Paranormal Erotica.

K.T.  What would you say has inspired you most in your writing career?

L.E. I have a quote that sums up this answer‎"Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.In essence, I write for the same reason that readers read!

K.T.  What does your family think of your writing?

L.E. Hubby is a writer of serious non-fiction, so he may roll his eyes when I'm not looking. Although, he has been an inspiration for some scenes. My kids cannot read most of them, lol. Mom? Hot scenes?...Nope.

K.T.  What was one of the most surprising things you learned while creating your book(s)?

L.E. When I found out, I wasn't directing it. I was writing my first Beasts book with a great concept: a psychic gets visions of Serial Killers. She meets up with a rebel cop and they hunt them down. Well, about Chapter 3? It took a wild turn and I was like whoa, wait up! I wrote the entire series like a madwoman.  I had three full novels in 9 weeks time!

K.T.  Can you tell us a little about your novel(s)? 

L.E. I have 14, but I spoke of Beasts and that is an interesting/Hot novel.
The Eyes of Constance:
Constance see's grisly visions and one day, she decides to see if they are real. When she gets to the scene? She finds the victim and the killer. Someone steps in and kills the murderer, Jack a rebel cop. They team up and after three years of a partnership, she finds that he isn't who she thought he was. Her world is turned upside down.
The ride is exhilarating, exciting and readers have said it is not like anything they have ever read.

K.T.  Where can we find your novels?

L.E. Mostly at Amazon, I found that Amazon is where all my sales are.

K.T.  Do you have a website, fan site, or Blog that we can visit?

L.E. I have a Colorful, Wicked Home for Leanore, there are some sexy pic's there too!

K.T.  Do you have any closing advice to aspiring writers? 

L.E. Make sure, your manuscript is well edited by someone besides yourself, before submitting or self-publishing. You want the readers to see the story and not all the errors instead. Push yourself in marketing and DO NOT GIVE UP.
