Where do I get inspiration?

IMG_1638Hi, Elle James here.

Where do I get my inspiration? Everywhere! Today, I’m in Winterpark, Colorado, nestled beneath a warm blanket, my pups sitting beside me while I write. The hubs and daughter are out braving the ski slopes and I’m visiting the characters in my latest story. So where do I get inspiration to write so many books? I look out the window, travel, read and imagine! I really need to write another winter story. With all this snow around me, it’s making me want to dive into a wintery setting and bring the outside temperature down and heat up the pages to compensate. As we near the end of 2012, I reflect over all the travel I’ve done this year. I make a note to myself to plot out books set in all the great places I visited. From here in Winterpark through northwestern U.S., through Northwestern Canada and Alaska. Take it south to Louisiana and San Antonio. Then hop the big pond to Ireland. Oh the places I’ve been and still have on my bucket list. I better get back to my writing or I’ll never get around to writing all the stories set in these fabulous places!

Billionaire Husband Test

Billionaire Online Dating Service Series

All Romance Ebooks

The first book in the Billionaire Online Dating Service Series.

Skeptical billionaire takes a risk on a friend’s online dating service and finds the cowgirl of his dreams, now he only has to convince her that he’s her perfect match

Billionaire Online Dating Service. It’s new, it’s exclusive. Let’s test it!

How did Billionaire Cooper Johnson allow himself to get roped into testing a brand new online dating system? After making a fortune day-trading stocks, he’s on track to accomplish all his life goals, except marriage and a family. As a billionaire, meeting the right woman is a minefield of gold-diggers, false eyelashes and surgically enhanced women. The Billionaire Online Dating Service matches hand-picked, screened clientele with the mates of their dreams. Or so the package was sold. As a favor for a friend, Cooper finds himself on the Rockin’ J Ranch confronting his “date’s” four tough looking cowboy brothers. When their girl-next-door, long, tall, gorgeous sister steps out on the porch, Cooper doesn’t know whether to run to her or away. One date, that’s all he’s signed up for and he can be out of there. Or will one date be enough?

She had everything—a fiancé, a great future, love…until she lost it all

Still mourning the loss of her fiancé who died two years ago, Emma Jacobs can’t imagine loving anyone else. But her four brothers won’t quit pushing men her way. In a desperate attempt to throw her brothers off her back, she engages her friend’s dating service to find a pasty-faced businessman sure to fail her brothers’ husband criteria. Maybe then her brothers will finally back off and leave her alone.

Best laid plans tend to blow up in Emma’s face. When her date turns out to be everything her brothers are looking for in a husband for Emma, she’s got a bigger problem than she started out with. She lets Cooper in on her plan to have him date and dump her. Surprisingly he goes along with it. But Cooper has plans of his own. And they don’t involve dumping the determined, sexy, independent cowgirl.

Note: Make a stop at Myla Jackson’s Ugly Stick Saloon in this story and say hi to old friends.
