738 DAYS, my first adult romance, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly: “Readers will long remember the love story between these two complex characters.”
738 DAYS is also now available in audio!
FOR THIS LIFE ONLY is my first young adult contemporary novel. It draws heavily on my personal experience as a pastor’s kid. I hope you’ll check it out!
Kirkus Reviews says, “Kade’s contemplation of life and the afterlife is unflinching, and Jace’s journey through his grief is messy, raw, and, above all, real.”
Bonus Content: WILL’S NEW APARTMENT. I’m so excited to share it with you guys. I get lots of questions about what happened to Will and Alona after the last book, Body & Soul, and there are some answers in this.
My parents are visiting for their annual pilgrimage to Woodstock. That’s where they filmed the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day. Lots of cute little shops with quirky products—like a mosquito yard ornament made of forks—and an awesome bookstore (@readbetweenthelynes) where we spotted a familiar-looking title! And then back home where Wyatt decided to show off his desire to be a lapdog…at 50 pounds.

What a beautiful picture! And if you can read it, this is one of the steamy scenes in STARLIGHT NIGHTS! 🤗

Have you ever wished to take a peek inside of the writers mind when you’re reading their book? 📖.
I have on several occasions! @pagehabit let’s you do just that! The Romance book for January was Starlight Nights @authorstaceykade and it is full of these delightful little purple post-it notes that share her thoughts about the book. This is such a unique aspect of @pagehabit boxes and so wonderful to experience as a reader! 💗.

Oh, I just love it when Past Stacey leaves these cute little notes—and a metric f*ck ton of extra work—for Present Stacey. 🙄
(Yes, that is a real unit of measure, leave me alone. 🤪)
My current read! Molly Harper always makes me laugh. I think this is her first venture into women’s fiction (vs romance or paranormal romance), and yep, just as funny! ❤️
FINDING FELICITY, my college-set YA novel, is out one month from today—3/20!
And here’s another excerpt of a college situation you may encounter…get-to-know-you icebreakers during freshman orientation. 🤮 Icebreakers are awful on their own. But with hyper-competitive teammates? So. Much. Worse.
To top it off, their team name is the Ash-holes. Kind of a play on the name of their school—Ashmore. And kind of Derek just thinking he’s clever. Even after Caroline points out they’re actually insulting themselves by using that name.
That part is actually based on a real-life experience from my freshman orientation at #valparaisouniversity. Our nickname is Valpo, and our team leader suggested Alpo as a name—he thought it was hilarious. Even though that meant we were calling ourselves…dog food.
I HATED icebreakers, but I had so much researching and writing this scene. *insert evil writer laugh* This game is called shoe mingle, by the way.
