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.
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!
