Author has written 7 stories for Romance, Fantasy, Young Adult, Western, and Kids.

I have an over-active imagination. Thusly, anything I can manage to get down on a keyboard ends up here. Due to my inconsistent nature, I only keep one story going at a time. But I promise you, there are several others still in the works. So, keep checking back for new stories! Also, be sure to visit my website for cover art, character photos, and more! You can find me at elizcollins.webs.com, though I can't promise that it will be too exciting, much less regularly updated...

Date: 9 October 2015


In case you haven't seen the chapters added to "The Rising Sun" and "Bright Star," I have a small request of my readers. The team from Inkitt is helping me pursue publication, and in that effort they would like to learn more about you, my readers. If you have the time to fill out a brief survey, I would greatly appreciate it. It shouldn't take more than 3 mins, and it will really help the team know how to best market my series. Here's the link: . Thank you sincerely for doing this! It will help make my dream of being published a reality!

With excitement,

Erin Swan

Old News

2 September 2015

Several years ago, I took a hiatus from FP to get more "serious" about my writing. Unfortunately, life got in the way, and my writing dwindle until I wasn't doing it anymore at all. Exciting things happened. I graduated college. I got married. I bought a house. And now, the reps of Inkitt.com are offering to act as my agents and pitch The Rising Sun and Bright Star to publishers next month. I am overjoyed by this opportunity, and give my sincerest gratitude to my readers here on FictionPress. Without you, it wouldn't have been possible. But I'd like to ask on last, small favor. Please go to inkitt.com/hiddengems and click the hearts beside my stories (published under my real name, Erin Swan). By doing so, you will show the people at Inkitt that my stories have followers, and that they're something worth publishing. And if you can share them with your friends, I would really appreciate it!

With sincerest gratitude,

Erin Swan (aka, E. Liz)

2.Unknown Territory (tentative title)- This one is still a vague idea, but it's one I like a lot. Inspired by my spring break in London several years ago.
