What a lovely way to start a new week. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Author Katie L. Carroll and her new novel Elixir Bound. You're in for quite a treat today. So relax and enjoy. Welcome, Katie.

Thank you, Beverly, for having me and Elixir Bound on your blog today. The book is coming soon to paperback, but it’s been out in ebook for about a year. And it seems people have been reading it! Here are what some of those readers have said (you can find a bunch more reviews on the Elixir Bound Goodreads page).

“This book has many twists and turns, battles, not only physical battles but Katora has her own battles within herself as well. It is also a very cute love story. I would recommend this to anybody young or old. I literally could not put this book down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. I really hope to read more about Katora and the Kase family in the future.”
~Heather (Once Upon a Twilight Reviews full review here)

“An enchanting and epic read from the beginning all the way until the end…nothing about this book seemed plain and unoriginal but the complete opposite. All in all this book had a little bit of everything I love in a book. We had drama, romance, action, adventure, suspense, and even a bit of mystery thrown in for good measure. Would I recommend this book to others? Heck yeah I would and I already have been, actually.”
~Krystal (Krystal’s Enchanting Reads full review here)

“From almost the first pages, I was comparing it to some of my favorite high fantasy books, such as Eragon, and I couldn't help thinking that this book - written by a debut Indie author - was right up there with them.”
~Sandy (Magical Manuscripts Reviews full review here)

I love this cover.

Elixir Bound blurb:

Katora Kase is next in line to take over as guardian to a secret and powerful healing Elixir. Now she must journey into the wilds of Faway Forest to find the ingredient that gives the Elixir its potency. Even though she has her sister and brother, an old family friend, and the handsome son of a mapmaker as companions, she feels alone.

It is her decision alone whether or not to bind herself to the Elixir to serve and protect it until it chooses a new guardian. The forest hosts many dangers, including wicked beings that will stop at nothing to gain power, but the biggest danger Katora may face is whether or not to open up her heart to love.

You can buy Elixir Bound at the MuseItUp bookstore, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, iBooks, and other online book retailers.

Author Bio:

Katie L. Carroll began writing at a very sad time in her life after her 16-year-old sister, Kylene, unexpectedly passed away. Since then writing has taken her to many wonderful places, real and imagined. She wrote Elixir Bound and the forthcoming Elixir Saved so Kylene could live on in the pages of a book. Katie is also the author of the picture app The Bedtime Knight and an editor for MuseItUp Publishing. She lives not too far from the beach in a small Connecticut city with her husband and son. For more about Katie, visit her website at, friend her on Facebook, or follow her on Twitter (@KatieLCarroll).
