Soul Mate Blog Hop

Mystery! Fun! Excitement! Prizes! Exclamation points! All this and more await you in this blog post, which links to several other amazing blog posts in the Soul Mate Super-Duper Fun Blog Hop, which stretches from Monday, February 24 to Friday, February 28.

Okay, this post may not contain tons of mystery and romance, but it leads to several authors whose books do. And it does feature opportunities to win some cool prizes, such as a copy of my latest published book, Hunted Dreams, and a Kindle PaperWhite. Details are below. First, though, please allow me to introduce myself.

So, hi. I’m Elle Hill. I’m a Sociology Instructor by day and a writer and social activist the rest of the time. I pen paranormal romance that delves pretty heavily into psychology and sociology. But hey, I don’t just pay attention to those human elements. I’m a big fan of animalkind and love featuring them in my works. Only The Tithe, my latest and as yet unpublished book, does not include animal sidekicks.
I also love writing and performing poetry and rather unmodestly admit to winning a few poetry awards. If you’re interested, some of my poetry is featured in Fat Poets Speak: Voices of the Fat Poets’ Society. In case you can’t tell, I’m also pretty politicized around body issues, from body image to rights for people of all sizes (vertically, horizontally, diagonally -- whatever).
But enough about me; let’s meet my works. My first three books take place in an alternate Los Angeles in which the Clan, a group of superhuman beings, protects humankind from the Leeches, a collection of psychic vampires that feed on humans’ pain and fear. The Clan subdivides into Hunters, superstrong women warriors, and Psychics, men whose superpowers tend toward the mental and emotional. As a result, this series is called The Hunted Series. My Hunted books are, in order, Hunted, Hunted Past, and Hunted Dreams. I also have a short story entitled “Hunted Holidays” in Soul Mate’s holiday anthology, All I Want for Christmas is a Soul Mate.
So, in short, if you like kick-ass women main characters, strong elements of psychological drama, psychic vampires, and, best yet, super cool animal sidekicks, you and I were destined to meet.

Nice to meetcha. Now that we’ve been properly introduced, here’s the info you’ve been waiting for. First of all, if you comment on this blog post and leave your contact info, I’ll randomly choose a commenter to receive my latest book, Hunted Dreams. I’m super fond of it and think you’ll dig it, too. To win the Kindle PaperWhite, VISIT HERE and follow the Rafflecopter directions. Please visit all the other authors’ sites, too, since each task you mark on Rafflecopter increases your chances of winning the Kindle.

Good luck, my new friend, and I hope you have fun getting to know some of us Soul Mate authors. I think you’ll agree I’m in pretty darn good company.

  4. Hi Elle...I'm a librarian at a community college and a big fan of our sociology instructors--many of whom are also activists. I think it's part of the job description! LOL.

  6. I love paranormal romances and your Hunted series sounds really good. Are they stand-alone stories or is it best to read in order?
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    1. Thanks for the questions, Pam! They're definitely stand alone, although each book features a brief cameo of one of the characters from the prior book. :)
