Escape the Winter Doldrums. Travel to Exotic Locations. Book Giveaway!


By Elizabeth Goddard 

I hope it’s okay for me to share with you here how much I love my job. Of course, I’m a wife and a mother first, but I have an honest to goodness work-from-home job writing novels! Yes, I earn a living writing books. Of course earning a living is relative to each person. I’m not making enough money to own three houses, one in Hawaii, or even two houses but you never know when things will change!

It’s taken me years to get to this point and I’m so grateful that I persisted. I give the credit and the glory to God for opening those doors, for planting those seeds and watering them, putting that dream inside of me.

So in my work as a writer, I get to dream about the next place I’d like to go and set my story there. It might be a place where I’ve traveled or lived ( like southwest Oregon for my new Wilderness, Inc. series, image to the right) or plan to take a research vacation.  But once I’m back in my writing chair, I can spend endless hours every day with my head in that exotic location on an adventure and, at least some of the time, running for my life—living vicariously through my characters, that is. In Undercover Protector I spent a lot of time with tigers--such big and beautiful creatures.

I mean, is that a cool job or what? And what’s even cooler about it is that you, the reader, can also enjoy this exotic location and experience the adventure of a lifetime and the adrenaline rush that comes with running for your life or some unseen danger or assailant—from the safety of your own home.

That’s the service I provide as a writer of escape fiction!

So if you’re looking for an escape this winter, grab an adventure romantic suspense novel. I can't promise my stories won't take you somewhere cold and snowy, but at least you'll be comfy and warm while you sip your favorite hot drink and read. 

Travel to some place exotic without packing your bags. Have an adventure from the pages of a good book!

I'm giving away a copy of Undercover Protector. To enter the drawing please leave a comment on the blog post with your contact information! 



P.S. Undercover Protector released this month. It's the second book in my new Wilderness, Inc. series. I hope you'll join me on this adventure. Oh, and if you'd like to find out as soon as a new book releases, follow me on Bookbub!
