Elizabeth is proud to annouce the release of Travellers in Magic, a collection of stories by National Book Award-winning author Lisa Goldstein, now available at Audible. This collection was produced for Tantor Audio.
Fifteen stories of ordinary lives that take fantastic turns.
Robert never quite feels at home with Cassie’s family, a gang of eccentrics including a reptile smuggler, a worshipper of Osiris, and an old woman who believes her photographs can see into the future. When he breaks up with Cassie, she is so upset that she gives him the most terrible thing she can offer: an envelope of her grandmother’s photos, which show in detail the path that Robert’s life will take. At first, this vision of the future gives him strength – but soon it becomes a prison on glossy paper.
A Nebula and Hugo Award finalist, “Cassandra’s Photographs” demonstrates all the power of Lisa Goldstein’s imagination. Whether she is writing about shape-shifting aliens or kind-hearted ghosts, Goldstein’s fantasies remain grounded in reality, supported by the kind of crystalline prose that takes a lifetime to master. This collection also includes the Nebula Award finalist “Alfred.”
Happy New Year (and new decade), everyone! Elizabeth’s final release of 2019 was Running Scared by J.A. Sutherland, the sequel to Running Start. Both were produced for Tantor Audio. Elizabeth has also narrated the Alexis Carew series by Sutherland, all of which are available at Audible.
Rosa and Mason once had a billion credits – sure, they stole them from a corrupt private-prison corporation, but the bastards deserved it.
Now, that company’s tracked them down and kidnapped Mason’s mother. The only way to keep her, and themselves, alive is to go to work for the company that once imprisoned them, then head for the Asteroid Belt to hack a pirate king’s datastream – oh, and give back the billion credits.
Rosa’s not sure it’s a fair trade.
Elizabeth’s latest release is the first book in the new Dark Runs series: Running Start by J.A. Sutherland, now available at Audible. Elizabeth will be narrating the second book, Running Scared, for Tantor Audio in November. Sutherland is also the author of the popular Alexis Carew series, which should be returning next year.
What if you discovered you’d been sold?
For Mason Guthrie, a sudden arrest, railroad trial, and quick conviction for the “vandalism” of fixing things around his tenement building come as a shock.
For Rosa Fuentes, it’s just more confirmation that, to Earth’s rulers, they’re nothing but commodities to be bought and sold.
Together – along with Rosa’s disturbingly capable AI – they break out and make their way off Earth to start a new, free life.
Unfortunately, the folks they stole a billion credits from along the way would like those back.
Elizabeth’s latest release is the first book in a new fantasy series by Kaci Morgan: Queen Immortal, now available at Audible. Be sure to listen to the sample from this exciting debut at Audible!
Queen Beza is a woman untouched by those around her. Immortal as she might be, she hasn’t yet learned the art of loving anything other than her crown. For more than 300 years, she perfects being cold, hard, and relentless, refusing to let her walls down for anyone.
After an attempt is made on her life, she is led down a path of darkness, deceit, and betrayal, uncovering secrets along the way that were never meant to be uncovered. With her lead guardsman attempting to break through the ice surrounding her heart and a peasant woman who unveils the likelihood that Beza may not be the sole heir to the throne, Beza delves deeper into suspicion, isolating herself further.
Now, she must search for a brother she never knew, convinced he is after her title. In her quest to find the truth and defend her nation against forces both seen and unseen, Beza’s greatest ally may be her heart. But can she learn to trust those closest to her before she loses her queendom, her chance to love again, and most importantly, her life?
An enticing fantasy by debut author Kaci Morgan, Queen Immortal explores the lengths one woman will go to secure her power and status, even at the cost of all she should hold dear.

Allies and enemies are not always what they seem.
Trapped on a hostile world, hunted by pirate bands, and abandoned by her fellow captains, Alexis Carew must lead her small band to safety, even though it seems every hand is set against her. Stalked by pirates in the skies above and shadowy alien figures on the planet below, Alexis must convince former enemies to trust her even as she discovers where the tendrils of her true enemies lead.
Elizabeth’s latest release is Of Dubious Intent, the first book in the new Dark Artifice series by Richard Grantham. This steampunk fantasy novel, set in early 19th century Britain, is now available at Audible.
Do you think when a man’s name reaches my ear, that he doesn’t deserve what I bring him?
Cat has grown up as a cutpurse on London’s streets – pretending to be a boy to stay clear of the procurers, but that ruse is getting harder to maintain and she needs a new plan. One that will let her keep the gang’s next big score for herself, get her free of the streets, and give her the hope of a new life. Then she finds her plan was someone else’s all along – and that man’s intentions are not at all what they seem.
The final audiobook in the Shards of Excalibur series by Edward Willett is complete and available at Audible! All five of the books in this wonderful YA fantasy series can now be downloaded and enjoyed: Song of the Sword, Twist of the Blade, Lake in the Clouds, Cave Beneath the Sea, and the latest release Door Into Faerie.
Shortlisted for the 2017 Aurora Award (honouring the best in Canadian science fiction and fantasy) for Best Young Adult Novel!
In the climactic fifth book of the Shards of Excalibur, Ariane, Wally, Flish, and Rex Major are on a collision course, converging on the resting place of the final piece of the sword: the hilt, long ago removed from its original hiding place by the descendants of King Arthur. When Wally uncovers its surprising location, far closer to hand than they’d ever guessed, it seems all Ariane and Wally have to do is claim it and reforge the sword to defeat Merlin forever.
Except…how, exactly, do you reforge a magical sword? Especially, how do you do it when the richest man in the world is on your trail and pouring all of his enormous resources into stopping you?
When the pieces of the sword are at last reunited, the long-closed door into Faerie swings open wide. Who – and what – emerges from it may destroy everything and everyone Wally and Ariane have fought so hard to save – and allow Rex Major to snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat.
Elizabeth is excited to announce her latest audiobook release: Song of the Sword by Edward Willett, the first book in the Shards of Excalibur series, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the other four books in the series for ACX later this year. This series has garnered some stellar reviews – check out the Audible page, or visit the author’s website to read them.
Ariane’s life is complicated. Her mother suddenly disappeared two and a half years ago, she’s trying to get used to living with her aunt after bouncing around a series of foster homes, and she’s taking a lot of grief from the clique of “in” girls at school. To make matters even worse, now she’s having strange dreams involving swords and knights and battles, and things seem to get weird whenever she touches water.
The weirdness comes to a head the morning the lake starts singing to her. Next thing she knows, she’s underwater, talking to the Lady of the Lake of King Arthur fame (who turns out to be an ancestor), has acquired a nerdy sidekick, Wally, has been bestowed magical powers, and has been sent on a quest to find the five scattered shards of Excalibur before the powerful wizard Merlin, in his unsuspected modern-day guise, can get his hands on them. Can Ariane and Wally figure out how to use her new abilities to meet the challenge…or will they die trying?
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
