About Elisha Neubauer:
The founder of European Geeks Publishing, Eleventh Hour Literary Press, and a self-proclaimed nerd – Elisha is obsessed with faeries, witches, science fiction, the paranormal, and all things Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Doctor Who.
Spending over a decade managing high volume businesses for others, Elisha decided to take a step back and focus on her own passions; leading her to open European Geeks Publishing and Eleventh Hour Literary Press. Elisha is an editor, reviewer, and freelance writer when not hard at work for European Geeks. Originally from the UK, Elisha now lives on a small family farm in Florida with her German husband and their three children, as well as an assortment of animals – peacocks, ducks, chickens, goats, pigs, and horses.
Her children’s book, Mr. Edmund Goat and the Elusive Clover, illustrated by Alyssa Savery, launched July 19th, 2015 and her fantasy novel, RED, is scheduled for late 2016.
What inspires you to write?
I can’t say there is any one thing – I just want to. I do feel the urge to write is intensified after watching a really good movie or tv episode (I know, that seems odd right?).
Tell us about your writing process.
I like to think of myself as a combo author. I generally let the story take me where it wants to go, however I’ll make hazy notes as things come to me that I would like to include further down the line.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t talk to my characters, but they do tend to fill my dreams.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write it out!
If you have a thought, write it down. Work it out on paper… You’ll never know if you’ve got gold if you don’t dig around for it. What’s the worst that happens? It’s no good, throw it away or hit delete… but you’ll never know if you don’t jot it down first.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have it easy – the best of both words. I run a small publishing company myself, so my books are traditionally published, but I have full creative control.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The publishing industry is only going to get stronger, in my opinion. TV is getting stale, movies are nothing but remakes these days and the screenwriters seem to be packing it up and moving into the literary world. Books are back, baby.
