So sorry I haven't responded, but I just now saw this question! Seriously have to change my Goodreads email updates. :-)
I do have a new series coming out in 2018! The first book is entitled The Scythian Trials and is an adult romance about a Society that values equality above all else. Ove the millennia, this caused Scythians to evolve into a new species--one that is stronger, more intelligent, and able to live longer than other humans. Fiercely protective, they have managed to safeguard humanity from itself, until now.

I'm working on the second book now, and, of course, I've been tinkering with the new Kailmeyra spin-off fantasy series about the new Guardians of Earth, which takes place when the twins are grown. :-)

Feel free to join the Isaacs Society on Facebook if you'd like the inside scoop! I'd love to see you there! https://www.facebook.com/groups/isaac...(less)

Hi Nicole,
That one's a hard one to answer, but I'd have to say my favorite books the Harry Potter series. I also love anything Maya Angelou, CS Lewis, and The Thomas Covenant series (an oldy but goody!). When it comes to all things romance, you can't get better than Lisa Kleypas (love her wallflower series). But lately, I've been on an indie kick and have been reading Amy Bartol, Abbi Glines, Jennifer Armentrout, Hope Collier and Mindy Ruiz (which are mainly contemporary YA).

Thanks so much for asking! :-) (less)

Mirielys Perez Elizabeth,

I can not express what joy your friend request on Goodreads has given me this morning. First, I want to say how much I enjoyed The Light of Asteria, it was a very good read and I can not wait to read the next one. You and other great writers I have stumbled upon this year have given me the inspiration to start writing as well. Thank you for your wonderful work and I really look forward to reading all of your future projects.

A new fan,
Miry

So sorry I haven't replied back. I forget sometimes to scroll down. :-D

I've been writing so much lately that it's left little time to read new material, so I go back to my roots. Right now, I'm re-reading Narnia, and I love JK Rowling (although I wish she'd write something else :-) On the romance side, I like "9 rules to break when romancing a Rake", but the other two in the series were a major disappointment to me. *sigh* I'm also thumbing through Stephen Colbert's I am America and So Can You. It's a silly read, but good for a pick-em-up-and-put-em-down few page quickie :-D

So sorry I haven't replied before now, but thanks for asking! What about you? What are you reading?

Elizabeth Isaacs I just found the most wonderful site on twitter, and I had to share. It is a company that takes recycled books and makes purses out of them. What's even better, though, is that they also make glass buttons out of the text. It's nerd fashion heaven! Here is the site:

Elizabeth Isaacs Thanks to all who came to the book signing! We had over 100 people there, and Joe-Beth books said that they hadn't had a turnout like that in a while. The shoe-string summer book tour is underway, and I should have the dates out for that soon. Looks like we're hitting Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. If you have something you'd like me to add, please let me know and if I can I'll squeeze it in.
Take care,
Elizabeth
