Elle Menard’s 1st Book in Fierce, Four-Part Romance Thriller Set to Display at the Hong Kong Book Fair 2024

The Hong Kong Book Fair once started as an event for small authors, so it’s no surprise that it now features the works of other budding writers from all over the world. For new indie authors like Elle Menard, it’s an exciting opportunity to share the first book of their own series. In her case, it’s “Phantom,” the kickoff novel to her four-part “Elite” series, which features a thrilling, suspenseful world where crime and espionage dance dangerously together.

“I could NOT put this book down. Phantom had me hooked right from the first page. Evelyn went through so many trials and tribulations at such a young age, and her desire for retribution was courageous. With each page, I fell more and more in love with the tension building between Evelyn and Kade and found myself laughing and crying with them. If you’re looking for a sultry romance with a dark plot, look no further!” – Erica O.

Since she was 15, Elle Menard has always loved to write as a means to de-stress. It went well with her fondness for her favorite TV shows and books. Many years later, however, a series of medical issues wreaked a lot of havoc in her life, and it pushed her ever deeper into improving her writing skills.

What began as a means to mentally heal herself soon became a concept for stories that she wanted to publish. Encouraged by indie author K.K. Winter, Elle set out to explore the many new types of publishing platforms that have cropped up in recent years.

One platform, GoodNovel, eventually approved her manuscript and officially set her on the path to authorship. This year, Elle is about to take another step as the first book in her planned four-part series is set to be exhibited at the prestigious Hong Kong Book Fair, which will be happening on July 17-23, 2024, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

The name of her series is the Elite, with its first book titled “Phantom.” As a fan of mystery as well as romance, Menard has gone on to create her own distinct world that blends crime and spy thrillers.

The plot of “Phantom” follows Evelyn, the daughter of a man who was brutally murdered on behalf of the shadowy Ricci Enterprises. Vowing revenge, she finds her chance when she’s recruited into a clandestine special-ops team that sees her potential.

And yet, her own undercover mission is compromised when she falls for another member of the underground world: a mob boss in charge of NYC’s most prestigious security firm.

Elle had been dedicated to making sure her first book in the series had plenty of suspense, thrills as well as sizzling romantic chemistry, all in equal measure.

Those who would like to check out “Phantom: Elite Series Book 1” at the Hong Kong Book Fair 2024 can find it displayed at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet’s exhibit.
