About Eli Summers

Growing up in a small city of Saskatoon, I always found myself writing poetry or something else to occupy my time. I entered a few contests, never winning but always knowing this is what I wanted to do. I wrote my first novella when I was sixteen, it really ignited my passion for writing. As time moved forward, I found myself creating more characters and more plot lines. I have now written over one hundred short stories, seven novellas and two full length novels. If I'm not working I am writing, creating something from the endless void in my head.

I have published two books to smashwords and amazon as of March 2015 and I plan on writing more. Eventually, I would like to self-publish myself to createspace so I can have paperback copies of my books. I'm living a dream I never thought possible. When even one person comments on my work and tells me how much they enjoyed it, I can feel my heart swell. The fans of my work are the best and without the support of them, I don't know what I would do.

Review by: Robert Zimmermann on Jan. 08, 2015 :
I actually appreciated the story, though I feel that it could use some work to polish it up and be less distracting and pack more of a punch with the touching story.

Aside from needing to be proofread (some minor errors, but a few bigger ones where completely different words are used than were meant to be), the timeline and logistics are a bit off. The dates don't match up in the later section of the story and it seems that the two main characters are a bit too young to have their own house and money to furnish it in the way that it seemed to be. They were in their mid-teens if I read it correctly.

I wasn't trying to nitpick my way through the story, because as I said, I did enjoy what the author was trying to write. But the issues were a bit too glaring to ignore. I would definitely check out more work from the author, especially if I know some more attention was given to the finished product. There's promise to what I see here.

A touching story. I can feel the hurt and the love. As well as the regret of having lost that one love.
As usual, Eli wrote a touching story. Read it and I dare you not to shed a tear or two.
