Over Raging TIDES Blog Tour With A Special TOP TEN GOALS from Author Jennifer Ellision

Over Raging Tides
Jennifer Ellision
(Lady Pirates, #1)
Publication date: March 20th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

The pirate crew of the Lady Luck lives by many rules, but chief among them is this: they do not allow men on board.

That’s a rule that quartermaster Grace Porter is willing to break when a shipwrecked young nobleman offers her information of an omniscient map, stolen from his warship by an enemy vessel. Until now, the map was only the stuff of legend… but with its help, Grace may finally be able to hunt down the Mordgris, the sea monsters who stole her mother away from her.

Unfortunately, some members of her crew have other plans…

To find the map and face the Mordgris, Grace will have to confront her past, put the Luck between warring nations, and uncover treachery aboard the ship. And ultimately, her revenge and the destruction of the Mordgris will come at a hefty price: the betrayal of her crew.

Grace promised them they wouldn’t regret this.

She just isn’t sure that she won’t.

We Asked Jennifer About Her Top 10 Writing Goals For The Future.


  1. Have a book reach 100 reviews on Amazon


I’m working on this one already! My debut novel, Threats of Sky and Sea currently has 75 Amazon reviews and I’m planning to get it back up on Netgalley and query reviewers again this year.


  1. Earn a full-time income from writing and self-publishing


Right now I have a part-time job to make up whatever self-publishing doesn’t earn, but someday I hope that I won’t need another source of income!


  1. Publish 3 novels in a single year


This is probably the loftiest writing goal I could make. Most years, I maybe manage one. But I want to become a faster, more productive writer.


  1. Amazon and Facebook ads


Many of the self-published authors I know who are doing really well are the ones who have figured out how to run Facebook and Amazon ads well and this is very much linked to my goal of self-publishing becoming my only income.


  1. Write a standalone fantasy novel


When I originally conceived Threats of Sky and Sea, it was as a standalone, but Bree’s story kept on growing! Grace’s story in Over Raging Tides is a duology and likely not the only Lady Pirates story I’ll be telling, but, for no reason that I can explain, I really want to write a magical story that can stand complete all on its own.


  1. Become a USA Today or New York Times bestseller


I doubt I’ll seriously pursue this anytime soon since my main goals are learning ads and writing faster, but someday, I hope to get involved in an anthology or boxset offer with other authors and making the big run for one of those titles!


  1. Co-write a book


I think co-writing a book would be a fun writing challenge; especially if it’s with a critique partner or someone I’ve worked with for a while.


  1. Have fan art!

I can’t draw at alllllll, so I would love to see how readers visualize certain characters or scenes!


  1. Write a non-fiction book


I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I WOULD WRITE ABOUT. But, regardless, the thought is there that this is something I’d like to do.


  1. Write a novel that isn’t straight narrative


I recently read (and loved!) Sightwitch by Susan Dennard, which is an illustrated novel. I’m also fascinated with epistolary novels. Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman has an unusual format while telling an amazing (from what I’ve heard) story. None of my current writing plans fit the bill for non-narrative style, but I hope someday, one does.
