APRIL 2014


Another month, another step in the journey! Here are the highlights from this past month:

On Sunday, April 13th, Lisa M. Green was interviewed by Kimberly Grenfell at Imagination Ether Press. Lisa speaks about both her current and upcoming books, as well as what inspires her to write. 

As a side note, Lisa is currently offering inexpensive editing services for new authors, indie authors, small publishing houses, or anyone in need of copy editing at an extremely discounted rate compared to industry standards. You can view her qualifications and rates here.


Latest Reviews for The First:

... a sumptuous blend of some familiar books—it has the feel of The Giver, plus a bit of Wool, all tied up with a very slight smidgen of the Hunger Games—yet in the end ... an entity all its own.

 —Imagination Ether Press 

... at first it feels much like 'The Village', but as the story progresses, we find that we are not in for the standard M Night Shyamalan twist, but something much more unique and interesting. A quick and enjoyable read.

— Amazon Customer

... well written, the story keeps the reader involved and you want to know more. Someone who loves mysteries would like this book as well as paranormal and someone who likes something different from the hum drum of other books.

— Amazon Customer

... a 'page turner' as I call it....one of those books that I just can't stop reading....up til all hours of the night reading, and still not want to stop until I get to the end, or until my eyes close from lack of sleep, whichever comes first.

— Amazon Customer

Well written with unexpected twists and turns that all come together in the end. A great first book for a great new author!

As I begin a new stage of my journey, the time involved in writing my new novel and promoting the current one simultaneously is beginning to overwhelm me at times. Perhaps that wouldn't be the case if I didn't have a day job, but the reality is that I do. So I must persevere through the obstacles.

But it does take its toll. I'm also planning my wedding that will take place in June, so I don't feel bad in complaining a little about the stress I'm under. Yet I know that no one wants to hear me vent. You want to hear about the great things that are going on in my life right now.

So here you go.

I have published a novel, and have the pleasure of seeing it get more and more exposure every day. I get to talk about the book with people that have never heard of it and see the smile on their face when they finish reading it.

I am currently beginning to write a new story, a story that has already evolved into a series even before I started the writing process. I'm going to publish a SERIES one day! And the story is GOOD! Really, really good. I just have to get the details worked out between all the good bits.

I am getting married to a wonderful man who inspires and supports me every single day, even when he's driving me crazy. The wedding is small but elegant, and I'm very excited for our honeymoon...in Italy!

And that's how you turn all your sorrows into smiles! I just wish I could get my brain to stay that way all the time. This journey is incredibly difficult, but like I've said before, I wouldn't have it any other way.

As always, thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

Happy Reading!

Lisa M. Green, author of The First, a novel of mythic and paranormal fantasy
