CHAPTER ONE

ACCORDING TO MY DAD, Christmastime is family time. But after eleven straight days at home, I can tell you, it starts to feel a little more like prison time. I love my family, but there’s only so much togetherness any sane person can stand.

And now, postdinner on a Saturday night, staring down the barrel of day twelve, I was ready to crawl out of my skin to see someone I wasn’t related to.
“You have to let me take the Jeep tonight,” I said, pushing open Eli’s door without bothering to knock.

“What?” Perched on the edge …

I’m so excited to share this cover! The first time I saw it I literally got chills. It just matches the tone and feeling of the book so perfectly. I love the look of determination on her face and the sense that she’s on a journey (which she is).

I would love it if you were to share the cover and description below on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram or your own blog.
😊
If you tag me in it (or otherwise let me know that you’ve done it), I’ll draw three winners for signed swag on 1/2/16, and someone (across …

AZ Skype visit

Speaking with the Summer Reading Group at the Anthem, Arizona Library.

Skype Visits for 2016

If you’re interested in scheduling a Skype visit for your classroom/teen group, just email me at stacey(at)staceykade(dot)com or complete the contact form. Just some basic info to get us started! 🙂

Skype visits generally last about 30 minutes. I’ll talk a little bit about the book/series, my writing process, and how publishing works. But the main focus will be on Q&A to make sure the kids have a chance to ask what they want to know!

**If desired, I will also send you a

I really, really wanted to like Supergirl. I did. I’ve been waiting and hoping for a show/movie/book that will end this ridiculous notion that a) girls aren’t interested in superhero stories and b) guys aren’t interested in females in superhero stories except as busty accessories, girlfriends of the hero, or cannon fodder (giving the hero motivation to avenge their untimely death).

I also loved the idea of girl power that is distinctly threaded through all the promo and trailers for the show.

And the show tried, I think. It just fell so far short, I’m still frustrated about it this …

Tyler Wiegele

SK: Thank you so much for agreeing to chat with us! I’ve been getting reader emails asking about you pretty much since the first cover was revealed! 🙂 Then when people started to read the books and found that the covers matched the characters so well, they were even more excited to know more about you.

Can you tell us a little about yourself? (Whatever you feel comfortable sharing.)

TW: Yes, of course. I am 26 years old now. I grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I enjoy longboarding, snowboarding, and fishing. I really like to spend time in the …

The-Trials_Cover final

Here it is, the cover for THE TRIALS, the final book in the Project Paper Doll series! (Add to Goodreads.)

I love so many things about this cover, I’m not sure where to start! Huge thanks to Tracey Keevan, my editor, and Tyler Nevins, the designer. Tracey and I talked about the falling mannequin idea over a year ago, and they made it happen! (I believe the photographer is Michael Frost.)

I love the discord in the image, the destruction of the previously well-ordered line (aka a giant metaphor for Project Paper Doll). Ariane is knocking things down and …

Welcome to another installment of the Writing Process Blog Hop! I was tagged by the lovely and talented (and my fellow Sharpie aficionado): Tera Lynn Childs.

1. What am I working on right now?
I’m working on a few things. Project Paper Doll Book #3 will be coming back to me soon with edits/copy edits. In the meantime, I’m writing a rough draft of my new contemporary book, After Life. That’s the story about the teenage son of mega-church pastor who is in a car accident with his twin. He survives, but his brother does not, leaving him …
