The Rhode Island Authors Showcase is back! Each day in November, I’ll be featuring a different RI author. Each post features a giveaway – a book, an anthology, or something else! All you have to do to be eligible for the daily drawing is leave a comment on the blog post. I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner one week after the blog post (to give you time to catch up).

By commenting on each post, you’re also entered to win our bigger prizes: GRAND PRIZE is a $250 Amazon gift card, BONUS PRIZE is a $100 Amazon gift card, and the CHEER UP YOU WON SOMETHING PRIZE is a $50 Amazon gift card. The big prizes will be chosen, again using a random number generator, on December 7.

Elizabeth Splaine

I’ve got some questions for author Elizabeth Splaine!

Where is your hometown? Wilmington, Delaware

What genre(s) do you write? Medical thriller

What have you written? Blind Order (2017), Blind Knowledge (2019), Devil’s Grace (2020), Swan Song (2021)

Who are some of your favorite authors? Ibram X. Kendi, Robin DiAngelo, Rodney Bolt

What were some of your favorite books growing up? Although the Day is not Mine to Give, I’ll Show You the Morning Sun, Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret, Crime and Punishment

What do you like best about writing? Creating a world from a nugget of an idea.

What do find most challenging about writing? Writing is like puzzle solving, but you create the puzzle, and the pieces keep moving around as you try to place them.

Where do you draw your inspiration? I love the process of writing, so my inspiration comes from that drive to push forward, to put the last puzzle piece in place. As for ideas, they come from everywhere-something someone says, an article I read, a story I’m told.

You’ve just been given the chance to collaborate on a book with Ibram X. Kendi! What’s the title going to be? The Light Settlers.

When Dr. Angela Brennan’s daughter dies shortly after surgery, Angela reluctantly employs the spirit world to fight the battle of her life against power-hungry hospital colleagues who will stop at nothing to conceal the truth.

Want to win a copy (hint: yes, you do!)? If you’re the winner, you can choose between a copy of Splaine’s novel or a half-hour singing lesson! Beth is an accomplished opera singer, and she can fine-tune your vocal instrument. Anyway, it’s your choice if you win.

To be eligible for today’s drawing, and for an additional chance in the Grand Prizes drawing, tell us which prize you’d choose!

  1. In my quest to live my best life, a singing lesson would be a very memorable experience. When asked what my weaknesses are, singing is at the top of the list. I’m terrible at it. A lesson with Elizabeth would be an experiment in hope for the possibility of doing what seems impossible.

  2. Good morning, your book sounds very intriguing and like a great read!! I would choose the book, as I am not a very good singer , I do sing to myself though. :). Thank you for the chance. Have a great day and a great weekend.

  3. If I’m a winner, I’d love a copy of Splaine’s novel. My daughter is the one with the lovely singing voice. I can’t sing in tune mainly due to my hearing-impairment.

  4. Elizabeth is amazing! If you think you can’t sing , she is wonderful at guiding you on breathing techniques. I know, I won last year and it was wonderful! I guess you know what I would choose!

  5. Elizabeth Splaine is in the highest tier of Rhode Island writers. Her “Swan Song” is unforgettable, displaying the warmth and compassion of the author herself.

    Although it would be fun and interesting to have a voice lesson with a new and different teacher, my singing days are long gone. I would choose a book.

  6. Hi Elizabeth, I would choose the singing lesson. I love to sing, especially in harmony with the radio. I started singing alto in my church choir fifty years ago. I can’t say my voice has improved with age, but that doesn’t diminish my enjoyment.
