Hey everyone who ends up here! (Thanks btw...)
As promised, here is the info relating to all things under the umbrella "Elisa's Book(s)"
#1- At the Chapters in Langley off 200th street you can find copies of my novel "The Perpetually Single Gal" by H.E. Rae. Let me answer your burning questions--> no, it is not an autobiography and yes, it is my book, I just wrote it under the alias H.E. Rae. (Mystery prize for the first person who figures out what's up with the alias/ the secret meaning.)I would compare my book to Sophie Kinsella's novels, but with a conservative Canadian girl's style.
#2- That novel (and others I've written, including the sequel) is available to order from Amazon.ca or the self-publishing website Lulu.com. EBook versions are avaialable on iTunes.
#3- A brief summary of the plot of "The Perpetually Single Gal" by H.E. Rae:
Shanny Hardy never thought she would be one of ‘those girls.’ The ones who have no career, no boyfriend, no degree, no dog. At twenty-eight, the only things she does have are a lingering student debt, an unconscious lust for her friend Conrad, and a regular Sunday interrogation/dinner at home with her ‘helpful’ family, full of suggestions.
After her disastrous job interview with a far too handsome man, she hits a low point. There are no foreseeable changes until one afternoon, looking the wrong way in the parking lot of the chain supermarket where she works, Shanny is hit by a car.
She spends the next week in the hospital coping with scratches, bruises, broken ribs, a broken foot, and her even more helpful family. A spark of hope appears when Shanny’s blood work reveals that she is a bone marrow match for a critical condition patient in the same hospital. This is her moment to give something of herself and to finally follow through. But is she ready for the consequences?
#4- The cheapest way for you to get my book is the ebook option but (if I can be shamelessly self-promoting) if you can, and would like to, please pick it up from Chapters. My contract lasts for two months and will be renewed and extended to other stores only depending on the quantity of sales.
The book can be found in the Local Interest Section near the magazines.
#5- Of course, if anyone wants, I will sign anything that you like. I will even write you a personal note that any character of your choice is actually based on you.
#6- last point! I will accept any type of feedback but I do have overly-sensitive artsy feelings (imagine any of those art kids in high school with dreams of drawing anime characters and I exist on a similar emotional plane) so, if you have any bad feedback that you feel you must share with me, please at least fo it in a creative/amusing way so that I can blame my tears on the laughter.
Thanks everyone!!I (I know this isn't really a big deal, but it's one of my dreams so I am engaging in spontaneous fist pumping. One of my other dreams if to have Tom Hiddleston recite Shakespeare to me but a girl has to have priorities.)
If you want to leave any comments on my blog, that would be wicked. Or tweet me! My twitter is @Elisa_McRae.
(Give yourself a pat on the back for reading all this nonsense!)
