Sci-fi Author Elizabeth Isaacs: Five weird, crazy, or fun facts about me + giveaway

Five weird, crazy, or fun facts about me

• • I am a trained opera singer. In my second year of college as a music major, I had to take a music reading class. The class involved a lot of singing, and one day the professor pulled me aside and suggested I take voice lessons. That next year, I won a national singing competition, and the rest, as they say, is history. I ended up getting my master’s degree in music performance as a singer.

• • I haven’t eaten sugar in two years. True story. I was invited to be a part of Jasinda Wilder’s “You Can Do It” group two summers ago and I fell in love with the program. I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, and I feel soooo much better!

• • I rarely watch television. I only watch shows when my children are home. The rest of the time I dust around the flat screen.

• • I love to travel. Next year, a group of friends and I are heading to Scotland!

• • I’ve developed a weird obsession for essential oils. Last year a friend came over and threw me down the Young Living rabbit hole. I now diffuse something almost every day. My favorite fall combo is five drops of orange, three drops cinnamon, and three drops clove. And I slather Frankincense and Myrrh on my face daily. 😊

The Scythian Trials
by Elizabeth Isaacs
October 16, 2018
Published by: Vesuvian Books
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Science Fiction
Descendants of the Amazons, the Scythians work alongside prominent governments but answer to no one. Warriors living on the fringe of civilization, they live by one credo: Strength through Equality. Power through Knowledge.

Nya Thalestris is the brightest Scythian of her generation. Strong, capable, ruthless, she is sure to earn a spot in the Trials, a time-honored mating ritual responsible for the evolution of her species.

Abducted by their sworn enemy, the Drahzda, Nya is forever altered and spirals out of control. The Society sends in Jax Nickius. Infamous psychologist and one of the most brutal warriors of their kind, he discovers triggers planted in Nya’s mind. As Nya solidifies her spot in the Trials, Jax develops a plan to help her heal—while pursuing her as a mate. But, Nya’s attraction to Jax is at war with her instinct to never let anyone get too close.

During the Trials, Nya’s repressed memories surface, revealing a new enemy—one from inside the consulate walls—and a traitorous alliance on the horizon that could irrevocably change the course of history.

Since before the Bronze Age, the Society has managed to safeguard humanity from itself … until now.
