Getting Comfortable With My Pseudonym #writing

It's been a few years now, and I have finally settled into to my pseudonym (if not her persona) and am almost as comfortable with it as I am with my real name. In fact because it was my choice, I think it suits me best. Many people ask how I chose it, and if I'd been smarter or more algorithm savvy, I may have ended up with something entirely different. I liked the sound of it rolling off my tongue. Eliza March...short, simple, sexy, and memorable. It ends up somewhere in the middle of alphabetical lists which is about where I'm ranked in the author sales ranking. I sometimes wonder if being at the beginning "A" or end "Z" would be better.

How did I choose "Eliza"? I've always loved the name Elizabeth. As a young reader, I admired Jo March from Little Women, the independent one who dreamed of writing. Then, I realized over the years, I had become a combination of  personalities from those girls. A bit like Beth, a lot like Meg and Jo, and Who of us isn't a bit of each? So I honor young women with my choice. "March" for all of us and "Eliza" because I didn't want to be exactly any single one of those personalities but a bit of my own as well. Eliza feels like a comfortable fit--even more so now over the last few years.

How would you choose a name for yourself?

 Excerpt from Vaewolf:

Six enormous wolves with silver eyes accompanied Jackson, stepping stealthily through the forest in spite of the ground covered with dried leaves. He and his pack stalked two males who, with the exception of the horns wrapped tightly against their heads, could have passed for human body builders.
More demons.”
Jackson and his werewolves moved forward, hunting and sniffing the air, waiting for the precise moment to strike.
The sharp sound of a branch snapping startled everyone. The unknowing prey and the hunters immediately stopped. Each demon male twisted to look and listen. The wolves, in order to remain hidden, silently dropped back into the brush. Jackson circled to the far side and waited still as death, not even breathing.
Then from a tree in front of the demons, an owl dropped to the ground. With wings fully extended whipping the air, the shape changed into the form of a tall slender woman with long flowing hair the color of copper covering most of her nakedness.
Shifter.” The tattoo on her hip gave her away. Only certain witches born to the magic were capable of shifting, and they were both powerful and dangerous.
Jackson sent the message mentally to his pack. “Not just any shifter. Witch shifter. Kade, do you have the trap bag?”
Yeah. We’ll need the iron and the witch’s rope, right?”
“…And the torque.”       
She reached into an obscure hole in the tree, pulled out a cloak, and covered herself while the demons were preoccupied with the shock of having an owl turn into the pretty witch.
From the cover of the trees, with the pack at his back, Jackson listened closely to the exchange taking place. The witch took a carved wooden box from her cloak and handed it to the taller of the two men. The other handed her a small package in exchange.
Before the transaction concluded, Jackson gave a silent order to attack with a shake of his head and a low growl. His shift from wolf to vampire happened so quickly, no one watching had time to move. But when Jackson attacked the witch, she struggled to free her hands. She needed her hands to spell caste. He ignored her physical efforts and instantly mesmerized her to prevent her from using magic, thus controlling her for the moment. Once the rest of the pack attacked the demons, it didn’t take long to subdue them.

Advantage wolves. [Copyright Eliza March 2015] All rights reserved.

Insecure Writer's Support Group

Today is the perfect day for IWSG I need the support. LOL
I'm going to be attending a conference next week, and I'm going to be one of thousands who are insecure dealing with the succesful and self confident. Is there a better recipe for anxiety?
I have  a new book (the third in the series) coming out during the convention, but all I have to do is look at my pre-order sales, and I panic. Months and months of sweating over the details brings me to this moment. Will it be as satisfying for the readers as it was for me? I hope so. It won't cost as much as a Starbucks Mocha Frapchino which you can drink in less time than you can read the title. For now it's available for presale.

Vaewolf: The beast invokes fear in the fearless and hope in the hopeless. 
A dark adult romance. A paranormal-fantasy love triangle. 


Jackson Xenos, the first born vampire in a millennia is a hybrid destined to lead the Loreans. He resents being the Werewolves’ miracle and the vampires’ hope, and certainly doesn’t want any part of an ancient prophecy. 



Jackson’s mentor, Dylan Macgregor, overcame the loss of his family and years of darkness, but until he almost lost his life mate to a bullet, he didn’t know what loss could be. Now the vow the Highland berserker made to Jackson’s father on a bloody battlefield three hundred years ago has come due, and suddenly he faces a greater challenge when Jackson imprints on his life mate. The promise he made might be more than he bargained for. 



Psychic FBI profiler, Caitlin Donovan’s life forever changed the day she died. Despite awakening to a world of supernatural beings she never knew existed, her new future with Dylan couldn’t look brighter, until something inside her responds to Jackson's wolf. Caitlin, to her horror, discovers the men who care for each other like brothers, may end up fighting to the death over her, because vampires don’t share. 



To fulfill the prophecy, Jackson must bind his mate, but neither man will risk completing the life bond to Caitlin without understanding the prophecy and until she’s bound to one of them, her psychic DNA calls to the demons, endangering everyone in the Parrish. 



The answers are in their blood, but what does her unique variety of DNA prove? Is Caitlin meant for one man or the other? The pain of remaining unbound is draining her life force, and the men who love her suffer her pain. To the sex fae in her, seduction seems a fair solution to their problem. A little faerie dust can’t hurt.
