I'm author ELLE STRAUSS and welcome to my website!
I write fun, lower Young Adult (teen) fiction to do with whimsical things like time-travel, fairies and merfolk.
When my serious side peeks out, she's called LEE STRAUSS. She likes to write upper YA about real things that have happened in the past, or made up things that could quite possibly happen in the future.
This blog is about books, mine and other fab authors', but occasionally I'll share about other topics.
Thanks for dropping by!

File Sharing Site and Book Pirating
My books are not yet published, but if/when they do, I’d like to get paid properly. How do I prevent myself from being a victim? How do these pirating sites get their hands on your work? I've heard that once a book is in e-book form (kindle, ipad, etc) it can be copied and downloaded onto these file sharing sites. This sounds too easy to me....
If any of you have insights on this, please let all of us who don’t yet get it, know about it.
BUT PLEASE DO NOT NAME THE FILE SHARING SITES. WE DON’T WANT TO GIVE THEM FREE PUBLICITY.
