Rise Again Warrior Make Over #2

Yep, the Rise Again Warrior series got another cover make over. Why? Well, because I’m really hard to please sometimes.

Nah, not really, but okay, maybe.

The truth is that while I loved the first covers, they didn’t fit the genre I wanted them in. The second batch of covers that I did last month, well they were better, but they still didn’t hit my heart when I looked at them.

Now this third batch has been under design for a couple of weeks and we have tried a whole lot of designs, a whole lot of male models to get the right look.

Then, I took two different versions, one dark, one brighter, and put them up to vote with some select readers who love the series. The brighter covers won the majority of the votes.

I think I might be happy enough with these that I’ll leave them alone for a while and let you all enjoy the books!

The Music behind Riley

I’m a huge music person–like I always have music playing. I don’t just stick to one genre either. Some days the classic rock is kicking my speakers, or I break out the vinyl and listen to a few of my dad’s albums, and some days I every have classic piano on. It all depends on what I’m doing and just how high my blood pressure is that day.

Recently I finished writing and editing Riley, Loving a Young Series, Book 4, and I came across a song that was so fitting for Ethan. Here’s the book blurb:

Riley is always the life of the party, and it’s Ethan that is there to pick her up and keep her together. He knows her almost as well as she knows herself, and he knows she will never love him as he does her.

Now Ethan wants more out of life and love, but Riley denies her feelings and insists they are just friends with benefits. When a training opportunity comes up that will get Ethan out of town for months, he jumps on it. It’s the only way to get over Riley and move on.

With Ethan gone and a new guy in her life, Riley finds herself dealing with several emotional issues without the help of her best friend. A family emergency has Ethan feeling lost without Riley there to lean on, but he refuses to go to her and seeks solace with another. Will Riley make the right choices, and finally, admit how she feels, or will she find herself alone and falling further down the rabbit hole.

When I started writing this book, I came across the song, “I’m Never Getting Over You” by Gone West. It hit me square in the chest as I could see Ethan saying these things, and Riley rebuking him. Check out the music video.

LOVING A YOUNG SERIES

Riley Releases on February 16th and will be exclusive to Amazon for a little while.

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.
