Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author

 

Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

 

The Reviewer

 

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Facts About Me: Reviews

I read reviews. *ducks for cover* Some break your heart and others mend it. One of the first things an author has to do after publishing their first book is to decide if they're going to read reviews. It's hard not to be curious, but it's even harder if you end up reading something that hurts you. The best lesson I ever learned in publishing was never to reply to a review. It can only lead to disaster. Now, I just sit back, sneak a peek at them as they roll in after release and then I don't read any more, after that. I like to see the initial reaction, but try not to obsess about it, too much.
