We are really happy to have author Elisabeth Naughton at Book Lover Inc today. She is here to celebrate her new release ENTWINED, book 2 in the Eternal Guardians Series which came out in July. Today she tells us about vacations and how they re-energize her writing. Be sure to stay  tuned for the giveaway Elisabeth offers at the the end of the post.
Thanks so much for inviting me to Book Lovers INC!
Last week I was in Orlando for the 2010 National RWA Convention, which was held at the Dolphin Hotel in Disneyworld. I always have a great time at RWA – talk too much, laugh too much, get way too little sleep – and this year was no exception. I don’t think I went to bed before 2 a.m. any night, I laughed so much my cheeks hurt, and I got caught up on all the industry/book gossip I’d been missing. At the end of the week I’m usually ready to go home, and this year was no exception, but instead of hopping a plane home to Oregon, I climbed in a car and am now writing to you from the Central Florida coast where I’m staying at a gorgeous resort for the next few days, kicked back with a drink, plotting out my next book (in my head, at least).

Vacations always reenergize me. Last year when I was writing ENTWINED, the 2nd Eternal Guardians book which just released last Tuesday, the family and I went to Hawaii for a week. Anyone who has kids knows a vacation with kids isn’t really a vacation – it’s a family trip – but even with my three hyper gremlins, rainstorms that ruined our beach play and way too much time in the car, I came home refreshed and was able to finish the ENTWINED. I even got some great ideas for the book while lying on the beach. As I get ready to start the fourth book in the series (which STILL needs a one word title…any suggestions???? The others are MARKED, ENTWINED, TEMPTED…) I’m hoping this mini-vacation is just what I need to jumpstart my batteries and kick the writing bug in gear.

Are you the kind of person who feels refreshed after a vacation? I’ve got books to give away to two lucky commenters today! One person will get MARKED – book one in the Eternal Guardians Series – and one person will get ENTWINED – book 2, which released on July 27th. Here are the deets on ENTWINED:
ZANDER — The most feared of all the Eternal Guardians. It’s rumored he can’t be killed, and he always fights like he has nothing to lose. But as a descendant of the famed hero Achilles, he’s got to have a vulnerability… somewhere.
Forces of daemons are gathering and have broken through the barriers of the Underworld. Now more than ever the Eternal Guardians are needed to protect both their own realm and the humans’. Zander can’t afford to think about what might have been with the bewitching physician he once regarded as his soul mate. But with eternity stretching before him, he also can’t fathom spending his life without the one woman who makes him feel most alive. Perhaps he’s found his weakness, after all…

    Hi Elisabeth!

    I'm just playing with the series title here, so here's my suggestion: Unguarded.

    I was reading about your vacation, and it reminded me of this cartoon I saw the other day, thought you would enjoy

  • Pearl August 2, 2010 at 6:27 am

    I love vacations but there are vacations where I return home more exhausted than I left 🙂 Had two of those this year, hope next year I'll have a more relaxed vacation.

    I have MARKED on the TBR-pile so would like to be entered for just ENTWINED 😉

    My title suggestions:


    Thank you for the great post and giveaway BLI and Elisabeth!

  • Sugar August 2, 2010 at 9:32 am

    I don't have any title suggestions, but would love to see the new book!
    I can't wait to get my hands on the others..they look so wonderful!

  • Victoria August 2, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Excellent post and thanks for the giveaway – it ends on my birthday :).
    I haven't been on a vacation in a few years but if we go somewhere where I don't have to be "mom" and cook and clean etc. – yes, I come home refreshed.
    I'm going with TRACKED for book four.

  • Felicia the Geeky Blogger August 2, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    WOW all the titles I would have picked have been mentioned 🙂

  • Meredith August 2, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    How about "Bound"?

  • Ina August 2, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Hi Elisabeth 🙂
    thanks so much for being here today and for your post – I really enjoyed reading it! and I can't wait for Entwined *g* btw, congrats on the release!
    I don't know if you mentioned it somewhere but I would love to know how many book this series will have?
    wish you all the best for the future,

  • jeanette8042 August 2, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    Loved the post! I would suggest Masked, Tempted or Seduced.

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    Hi Jen7 – That cartoon is hilarious! So me right now. LOL

    I love Unguarded too. That's going on the list for sure! Thanks!

    Hi Pearl – thanks for all the great title suggestions! Unleashed is actually one I was strongly leaning towards but I just saw somewhere JR Ward is using it for her new BDB Series – I think Lover Unleashed?

    I hear you on the vacations that leave you more tired than before you left. I'm hoping this vacation isn't like that for me. As it is, already exciting. We had a shark swim through our beach this morning. That was rather exciting (and got me moving to the pool.)

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks for stopping by, Lora!

    Wanda – oooh, I love Ensared! Adding it to the list. Thanks!!

    Hi Sugar – I hope you enjoy the Eternal Guardians!

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    Victoria – ditto on the no cooking and cleaning!!

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Felicia – thanks for stopping by.

    Meredith – Bound was actually one we tossed around for ENTWINED but in the end my editor and I decided it had too many meanings. That's what's hard with one word titles.

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Hi Ina, thanks for the congrats. I hope you enjoy ENTWINED!

    To answer your question, right now there will be at least five books in the series. If readers (and my editor) want more, I'll keep writing them!

  • Elisabeth Naughton August 2, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Thanks for the suggestions, Jeanette!

  • Nicole August 2, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    You describe the difference between a family trip and a vacation perfectly. I'm going on my first vacation in YEARS! My husband and I are going to celebrate our 10 year anniversary in Hawaii in 2 weeks. I'm so excited.

    Your books sound very interesting. Thanks for posting and letting us know about the books.
