E is for Eliana

I have a fabulous friend named Eliana and today is all about her and what she's done for me.

She's a fellow blogger and she also owns her own Etsy shop! She has fabulous shoes that she personally designs... which only means that I had to get my own personal shoes!!

I have a reason for getting these shoes. For all you newbies there I should explain! I wrote an Adult chick lit novel titled In The Mind of a Celebrity Stalker.

Short synopsis: Jules Ausborn prefers make believe than reality. When she begins journaling to celebrities it's a way to cope with all the drama and persistence her family brings on changing her dating life and life in general. What starts as a coping mechanism turns to an obsession that Jules just can't let go of. Mix in her hot next door neighbor and Jules has some real issues to work out.

Let's just say she's complicated... and a riot. So it only makes sense to have some funky shoes that are just like her! Here are some pictures! I had a ton of fun having them made!!! Should you want shoes of your own please stop by Eliana's!!!

I am not "girly" about anything but shoes are my kryptonite. I use to have so many shoes that I would forget and when I would find a pair I had forgotten about it, it was like christmas.

Love the shoes. And also loved "On Writing," as per your comment. That is actually my second favorite writing book after Dorothea Brande's:)

Very fun blog. I am amazed that you post five days a week - that's quite a commitment! But then it means you write every day, doesn't it? Anyway, thanks for stopping by and good luck with your a-z campaign!

Jen, I have a shoe fetish. Just ask my husband if you don't believe me. I probably have 20 pairs of black shoes -- he has one pair. He just doesn't get it.
I have to have my own pair. Your are so cute.

Cute shoes. I am not much of a sneaker person but those are adorable. In the Mind of a Celebrity Stalker sounds very intersting and like something I would enjoy reading. Good Luck with your query.
