Unwanted by Jennifer Estep

The New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series continues with a new e-novella—from the point of view of Finnegan Lane, the foster brother of Gin Blanco, and a fan favorite of readers of the series.


I'm delighted to be able to share a brief interview with one of my favorite paranormal authors, Jennifer Estep, as well as share the news that a new novella from Finn's point of view has just released!

ELF:  What was the best advice you received when starting on your journey to be an author?

JE: I would say to believe in myself, to keep writing, and to keep educating myself about writing and publishing. It’s a tough business to be in, and you really have to have confidence in yourself to keep going through all the ups and downs.

ELF:  What do you do to mentor others?

JE: I help out the folks in my local book club when they need it, talk with my author friends about issues, and things like that.

ELF: If you could share a meal with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?

JE: Oh, fun question! I’ll say Ryan Reynolds, since I watched Deadpool recently. In the movie and all the interviews that I’ve seen with him, he seems like such a witty, entertaining guy. He seems like he would be a really fun dinner companion and that he would just keep making you laugh the whole time.

The fallout from his disastrous “family reunion” in Bitter Bite has left Finn feeling hurt, angry, and depressed. He can barely stand to look at himself in the mirror, much less eat any of the delicious barbecue from Gin’s famed Pork Pit restaurant.

But when the funeral for a slain security guard at his bank turns into a showdown with some nasty underworld giants, Finn knows that he must act in order to protect an innocent family.

Finnegan Lane might be the most unwanted man in Ashland these days, but he’s determined to try to make amends for his past mistakes...
