Hello. My name is Susanne Leist.

A career in writing has been a giant leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. Fellow authors helped me make my way through the competitive field. I write every day and even tried my hand at poetry.

Blogs, websites, and social sites like Google and Twitter should be ready and waiting. Summaries and bios should also be prepared in advance. After the book is released, it should be announced everywhere with bold pictures and words. People will be ready and eager to read it. That's my goal for my next book, which will be the second book in The Dead Game series. Good luck!(less)

I wanted to incorporate all of this into my book. My mind moves quickly and so does the plot. It has twists and turns. It ends with a cliff hanger. But there will be a second book. I hinted at it by ending with "The end for now..." (less)

(via WELCOME TO OUR WORLD)


Welcome to our world.

Our haven from light.

A world of darkness.

We’re hidden from sight.

Dance with us tonight.

Come with us and play.

Music soothes the soul.

Dawn won’t have its say.

Hi, I'll try my best. I'm in the middle of reviewing three books and writing my second one.


Susanne Leist Hi Clare,
I've been reading a lot of books this summer but just forgot to add them to Goodreads. I read the trilogy by Deborah Harkness. They were great except for the last book. Now I'm reading Brad Meltzer's latest book. I'm waiting for Linda Fairstein's new book to come in the mail.
Thanks for pointing this out for me.

Mary Simmons I am an muse to a fantasy writer. I promote him and learn as much as I can about the art of publishing these book series. Your search has ended. Moonwarriors is the very best Vampire vs werewolf series on the market. You may be interested in this werewolf writer, which is on facebook/goodreads and he is very down to Earth kind of man. Send him a friend request to Rusty Nugent and you can like Author Rusty Nugent group. Take it easy and let me know if you like Rusty's book series. You get many transformations of heroic werewolves vs evil vampires, and many battles between the both of them. There is a lot of blood and guts. The books are Dark Fantasy with Horror and Romance elements. Thank you for your support. Lets become friends, send me a friend request.


Daniel Pearson Susanne: Really enjoying your book and almost finished reading it.
I am on Florida at the moment with almost no communication. I will contact you this Friday to send you my review to look over before I post it. My apologies for the delay.
Best regards
Daniel
