RAW gets a Makeover!

After a lot of thought, and quite a few polls to see what readers thing, I have decided to change the cover of the Rise Again Warrior Series.

As this series could fall into two different genres, Romance & Women’s Fiction, it’s also Military Fiction and Family and Relationships. So, finding the right cover to hit all those genres can be difficult. I’m hoping that everyone loves the new covers that will be rolling out over the next couple of weeks.

With each main military character, we have the shadow of the warrior they used to believe they were. These stories are about reclaiming those warriors and helping them find a new normal now that their military careers are over.

Huntley Releases

The third book in the Loving a Young Series is now available!

Daniella Knight works hard to create suspenseful and romantic tales, but after a violent interaction with a fan, she wants to hide from the world. When her house catches on fire, her and her protection dog, Tigger, are forced to rely on the help of strangers.

Huntley Young loves being in the thick of the action. Well, as long as that action has something to do with his job as a firefighter. When Huntley stops the homeowner from going back into the house, he has no clue, that he just placed himself firmly in the hero department.

As they two get to know each other, Daniella’s creative mind is always building on what is around her, and before she knows it, reality and fiction are hard to tell apart.

When danger strikes again, will Daniella be able to see what is right in front of her, or while her past trauma keep her safely inside her romantic fictional world?

Check out some early reviews:

Once again Stacy Eaton mirrors real life with fiction and shows us how something traumatic in our lives can cause us to have PTSD and loose our grip on reality. Kudos to Ms. Eaton for bringing us these stories that touch on real situations.

– Amazon Reviewer (R. H.)

This story is a perfect blend of family loyalty, humorous teasing between siblings, friendships, first responders, hardships,coming to terms with trauma, heartwarming moments, suspense and romance! I can always count on Stacy Eaton to write a great story with all “the feels”.

Amazon Reviewer (B)

This story had so many interesting things going on. The insight into an author’s mind, the line between fiction and reality, a love story, a huge amazing family dynamic, suspense and intrigue. This whole story just blew me away.

Coming in February: Riley, Loving a Young Series, Book 4

Writing Timelines

I’ll be honest, I hate timelines, they are a pain in the butt. Sadly, they are very necessary in books. How many times have you read a story and went, “What? Wait a second. That’s not right!” Sometimes it’s minor, and sometimes it is MAJOR! Enough to annoy a reader and turn them off from your books.

I work hard to make sure my timelines flow in my books. I track them through a spreadsheet in Excel, and one of my proofreaders loves to nit-pick them so intently that I believe she has an addiction. It’s a good addiction!!! One that I seriously appreciate!

Last week I wrote about 27,000 words on a new book. Riley is the fourth book in the Loving a Young Series, and it is coming out in February. I was rocking right along until I paused and went, Wait! I need to adjust the timing on this! Then I made changes. I ended up having to make more changes and add in two chapters, and then I needed more changes.

Then I realized I had screwed the timeline up so much that I didn’t even know what everyone was doing or when!! So I had to stop and find another way! I ended up using my regular calendar connected to my email.

Now I have it all down correctly! But man did that take a while to get it corrected! Now, when you click on those lines, there are notes about the chapters and details of what needs to happen when! Perfect!

I do have to add that while Riley is an intense timeline – it is now where as crazy and intense as The Twisted Love Series! This picture is the timeline that used to be on my wall – That is 11 feet of timeline!! Take about details to track on that series!
