Readers’ Favorite is one of the largest book review and award contest sites on the Internet.

Jance, James Rollins, and #1 best-selling author Daniel Silva, as well as celebrity authors like Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty), Henry Winkler (Happy Days), and Eriq La Salle (E.R., Coming to America).

I am super excited to announce that Mission: Repair is now available on e-book, paperback, and hardcover. Audio will be coming later this year.
This story was a difficult one to write. While my Rise Again Warrior books are very emotional, this one dove deep into depression, PTSD, TBI’s and suicide. During the writing of this book, it was sometimes hard not to get lost in my own depression as I dealt with my life and those of my characters. There were days that it was brutal and I only wrote a few hundred words before I needed to walk away.
Needless to say, I poured my heart and soul into this book.
I am also sincerely humbled by the reviews that continue to come in for Mission: Repair and the rest of the books in the Rise Again Warrior series. It is a true honor to be able to bring this series to you. These stories aren’t just mine, but from the men and women who have walked these roads. They are heartfelt emotions, sometimes dark and twisted, and other times full of love and passion for life.
In Mission: Repair, I have a special dedication that I wanted to make sure people see. Both of these men sadly lost their battles with their demons, and I send tons of love to Mariah and Gigi. I love you both dearly for all that you do and for all that you have overcome in their absence.
Check out a few Review Quotes:
“This emotional story was well worth the read with the great character and plot development that kept me so invested with the character’s journey that I couldn’t put my kindle down.” Goodreads Reviewer, Pat
“I think this is perhaps the best of the series or perhaps this one just hit with me. Gracelynn and Brady’s story is all too common but as told here it is a story that unfolds and you are right there with them. I love the way Stacy just pulls you in and makes you feel as if you are in the story.” Goodreads Reviewer, Kate
“This series is simply put, amazing. It gets right down to the nitty gritty, the painful subjects that people either choose to ignore or don’t believe are there and this latest book well it had me in tears right the way through.” Goodreads Reviewer, Debbie
“This is a very emotional book well worth reading. I can’t imagine what Ms. Eaton went through writing this book. The book sure made me stop and think about how much I have to be thankful for, and open my eyes to what the brave men and women that are protecting our country can go through.” Goodreads Reviewer, Becky
