Where have I been?

Hi guys, I know what you’re thinking. Where have you been. I’ve taken a long hiatus from social media, writing, and blogging since February. It was highly needed in my case. I know, I know ‘the innocent always look guilty when they defend themselves.’ I get it, you have every right to be mad. First, I just want to say thank you to the 50+ of you that reached out via email to me. Yes, I’m alright and am frankly doing great. So no need to worry. As many of you know, I am a student. This was my first year of college and I was figuring things out. With finals, studying, and just having fun, I wanted to distance myself from social media. Many of you know, Eli Bauer is my pen-name (if you don’t know, Eli is my nickname and the name of someone who is very important to my life, and Bauer is a pen-name :) ) and I’ve been balancing things on my plate.  This year, I completed my exams and am pleased to reported I did well. Also, I got in touch with my family again and we’re (Thankfully) do great.  No…

Sirens and Scales: By Water's Edge Review + Giveaway

Hey everyone and happy new years! Today, for my first blog post of 2018, I'll be reviewing, By Water's Edge, the newest novel written by USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Kelly Anne Blount. I've reviewed all of her published, and interviewed her (if you haven't read those, go now :) )


By Water's Edge tells the story of Princess Aria. She lives in the merworld, and merfolk are forbidden to go to the surface. The world is divided by mermaids and dragons, and basically none of them can go to the surface. Mermaids have the ocean, and dragons have the mountains and the sky.
I've never, ever thought of this combination in my life. It hooked me right away. What I liked about it was, Blount went into detail of the world's 'history' and her world was truly believable.
Aria's mother died (wink, to the Little Mermaid) and she lives with her father, the King and her sister whom I hate so much.
I seriously wanted to punch, Gemma, so bad!
Aria's dad is pr…

Interview + Review with Olivia Wildenstein

Hey everyone! 
I hope you're enjoying December, I know I'm not. The weather here in Chicago is killing me. Anyway, today I've got a real treat! I'm interviewing USA TODAY Bestselling Author Olivia Wildenstein. 
Before I get any further I have to say, she was one of the sweetest authors I've ever interviewed.
Also, quick reminder, check out this jumbo giveaway (featuring giftcards, eBooks, paperbacks etc.) click here.

Let's get started: 

USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.

When she’s not writing, she’s…
