THE HISTORY OF AMBER LOVE
I’m Elizabeth Amber Love (yes, that’s my real name), writer, model, podcaster, public speaker and blogger. I graduated with a Communications degree and never seemed to be able to put it to use until blogging and podcasting were invented. I focus my posts on comic books and other entertainment. I absolutely love interviewing people. I guest host on a couple of comic book podcasts and launched VODKA O’CLOCK in March, 2012 where I interview people from all walks of arts and entertainment.

In 2011, I began writing comic books and guest writing for the SUBCULTURE webcomic. I’ve created HOLYOAK, THE TEEN DETECTIVE, SLIM & POSH and in 2012 I was a co-writer for the SHAKESPEARE SHAKEN anthology on the story, NO. 130, FOR LOVE. For 2015, I wrote a story illustrated by Carolyn Belefski for the RISE: COMICS AGAINST BULLYING anthology. New for 2015, I have a short story in PROTECT volume two, PROTECTORS: HEROES to help lobby for better child exploitation laws. Coming up, one of my stories will be part of one of my favorite titles ATHENA VOLTAIRE.
In 2016, the first two medium-boiled cozies in The Farrah Wethers Mysteries came out: CARDIAC ARREST and FULL BODY MANSLAUGHTER. The third installment, MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE is scheduled for 2017.
I’ve been into costuming my whole life but only started partaking in this “cosplay” movement since 2006 when the “Amber the Stylist” character was first conceived. Since then I’ve enjoyed making my own unique versions of well known characters such as Wonder Woman, Moonstone/Ms.Marvel, Firestar, Power Girl, Black Cat, Rogue, Harley Quinn, and Sue Storm. I was NJ’s Wonder Woman 2007-2013 at the annual fundraiser for domestic violence hosted by Comic Fusion which has raised over $50,000 over the years. I’ve done some obscure characters like Queen Neva from Planet Gigantic, Ace from Royal Flush Gang, Amazonia from Love and Capes, Claire Voyant the Black Widow, Hotwire from The Awesomes, Madame Web from Spider-Man, Starling from Birds of Prey, Modesty Blaise, Rumor from Umbrella Academy, Andromeda from Legion of Super Heroes, Star Sapphire from Green Lantern, and Twilight Guardian. Non-comic related and perhaps my favorite thing is dressing as Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation.
Modeling started for me in 2009. I work for private artists, photographers, museums and schools throughout western New Jersey. I have been booked as a booth babe at trade shows. I love every minute of it! I added adult glamour modeling to my portfolio in 2010.
My business is modeling and costuming some of which is adult oriented. Visit my site on your own terms and understanding of this. If you are grossly offended by the human form do us both a favor and leave now. You can still enjoy my old reviews and current vlog reports at YouTube. New reviews are all posted here though under the Reviews tag. And my podcast, Vodka O’Clock, is audio so you don’t have to look at naked bodies while listening to that.
I’ve collected the most often used sites at About.Me. I guess I never mentioned it before, but I’m on Pinterest too. I prefer it over Instagram and Tumblr, but each thing has their own “thing” they do better than the others. Unfortunately, I can’t get one name on all the networks so it might be hard to find me. I’m also listed on ello (never use it to be honest), and wattpad. I think wattpad might really open up some doors for posting writing in ways that WordPress and a url haven’t done. We’ll see. I’m still editing another novel and looking for work. As always, Twitter is the best place for now to find me.
