Welcome to the Elementals!

Hello paranormal romance fans!
I’m L.B. Gilbert, former scientist turned author. You might know me by another name and are curious about my new series.  The Elementals was conceived long ago before I wrote any of my romance novels. I’ve decided to publish it under my maiden name to distinguish it from my other books. Though you might see some similarity to my already published works, the Elementals has different objectives and goals. It’s a series focused on powerful independent women in a setting full of endless possibilities.

Fire: The Elementals Book One is actually the first book I wrote, but I didn’t publish it because I decided to launch my contemporary romance series first. These fantasy novels are more intricate and detailed than my contemporary work so they take longer to write and edit 😉

I’ve decided I’ve waited long enough to bring you Fire, which is hands down the favorite amongst my beta readers. Maybe you’re one of them and that’s why you’re reading this now. If that is you, I have started the follow-up, Air. I’m 30K+ words in, but I recently had a child and had to put it on the back burner.  I hope to get back to it very soon because I already love it. I’m even exploring dictation software so I can make some headway even when I can’t physically sit down and write.

Keep checking this blog for progress on the series. This is also where I’ll be announcing special offers, contests, and deals from myself and my expanding circle of awesome writer friends!

Hi Mabel!
I’m glad you liked the book! Logan does have quite a bit to do with a werewolf, but it isn’t Dmitri. Eventually, Dmitri will get his own adventure—I promised my husband. He loves the big lug.

Thank you Ani! It means a lot to hear that. I am hard at work on Air when the baby allows…If you get a chance could you review fire on amazon? Trying to get to the 50 anf 100 review benchmarks that seem to make a difference in the amazon search engines…

*Just* finished Fire, and i am in love with the series. Its hands down some of the Technical best writing ive seen, and the story and characters are full of life and well rounded. The world is interesting, and you stay true enough to much of the original lore while twisting it that its both enjoyable and belivaible. Hopefully, at some point later in time, we get to see more of Diana and Alec, but likewise its going to be fun to follow the other elementals and their adventures abd personalities.

Besides that, is there gonna be different species of weres, or are you just sticking with wolfs? Anyways, thanks for a really good and enjoyable read

Thanks Tobias!
Logan is next on the list, but I will go back and revisit the earlier characters. And no— I plan on introducing other shifters eventually although *Spoiler Alert* wolves do feature prominently in the next book. If you get a chance could you review fire on amazon if you haven’t already? I’m rying to get to the 50 review benchmark. I’ve been told it makes a difference to the amazon search engines… Thanks again for getting in touch!

I loved Fire. I was hooked from the start. I can’t wait to read the rest of your books in this series. I can’t wait to find out what happens with Logan. I love the fiesty and sometimes serious nature of the main characters.

When I finished Fire I gave it to my husband as a “You’ll like this.” He finished it in a day and now he’s asking me where are the others? We both eagerly await the rest of the series.
